Carol Facella Kummins The Sante Center for Natural Healing Founder

The founder of The Sante Center for Natural Healing, Carolann Kummins is a dedicated, compassionate health care professional, who has extensive experience (and success stories to share!) helping patients to heal their most challenging health crises. Carolann has lectured throughout the United States and her work with MS and Crohn’s Disease was published in Cancer Forum Magazine (New York). Carol has also been featured on numerous media broadcasts.  Carolann’s passion is to explain to audiences and patients the benefits of proper diet and nutrition and the importance of incorporating raw foods and juice therapy.

In addition to the human touch, Carolann also assists the canine community raw nutrition and herbal therapy.  She has worked side by side with many veterinarian doctors, bringing state of the art treatments to their furry patients.

Carolann attended The American Holistic College of Nutrition, Clayton College and subsequently received certifications in Colon Hydrotherapy from The Wood Institute and the International Association of Colon Hydrotherapy. Carolann has researched the medicinal uses of raw foods and their juices for more than 30 years and conducted lower-case studies.  Carolann has also studied worldwide, amongst civilized cultures and indigenous people, expanding her knowledge of the healing benefits of food.

Carolann began her pursuit of health and wellness at an early age after losing her mother to breast cancer.  She began her education in the field of medicine; however, after researching and personally experiencing the power of the body’s ability to heal itself with healthy raw foods and juices, and with proper elimination and natural complementary therapies, she chose natural health and healing as her life’s journey.
