Featured Friend – Cheryl Ferrari of Face Facts Healing Spa

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cheryl Ferrari.

Cheryl, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Cheryl has been an established esthetician in the Boston area for thirty years. In her years of training with various healing arts, she was always drawn to the beauty and healing properties of crystals. At her healing Spa, she has incorporated specially designed crystals to create an optimal environment for energy healing. Cheryl is fast gaining a reputation for her work in the health and beauty arena, breast health. Cheryl’s skill with lymphatic drainage combined with other modalities expedites post-operative healing of skin.

Cheryl Ferrari is a lymphatic drainage expert who utilizes the Phyto 5 energetic range of products. She was one of the first trained in the Phytobiodermie protocols in the U.S. In recent years, Cheryl has been working closely with natural health consultants, and thermographers to provide a closed circle of healing for her clients and has become the therapist of choice for breast health.

Cheryl has a zest for life who brings her nurturing quality as a mother and healing practitioner to her practice. She is truly akin to all things natural and energetic.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
30 years ago, alternative work was less understood. People would come to me for beauty treatments, but to their surprise they were also treated for lymphatic drainage, detox, and general healing. One of the biggest challenges was educating people on the benefits of my treatments.

So, let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Face Facts Healing Spa story. Tell us more about the business.
It’s a great two hours from the rest of the world. People leave 10 years younger in body, mind, and spirit. My full body treatments include customized lymphatic drainage, facials, bath therapy, and infrared treatments, which are designed to remedy and prevent inflammatory conditions on the skin and body.

My work is a combination of the principles of Chinese medicine, charting natal biorhythms, energy medicine techniques, including reiki, chakra balancing, vibrational therapy, aromatherapy, and natural healing energies. I use an energetic Swiss skincare line, Phyto 5, which includes organic colored clay masks with a high concentration of essential oils.

Ongoing education in the field of wellness and beauty has been my most passionate pursuit. I consider myself very fortunate to work in a field that I love where I can continue to educate myself and others on matters of health and beauty. Prevention is 90% of health and beauty, so my treatments are detoxing and cleansing which makes for a more beautiful you – inside and out.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
I’m lucky that detoxification has been put on the map. People are much more health conscious and aware of preventative measures now than they were when I started 30 years ago. I feel blessed that I have tools to measure so many aspects of healing.

A Refreshing and Healing Juice Recipe…


Juices are a great way to get in a variety of healing ingredients in one go. This Thyroid Healing Juice from Anthony William’s book Thyroid Healing is made entirely of ingredients that support thyroid health. The best part is that it’s easy to customize according to your tastes. Feel free to substitute cucumbers in place of the celery or parsley in place of the cilantro. In any case, you will be getting a big dose of powerful thyroid support!

Thyroid Healing Juice

Let’s take a look at some of the ingredients in this wonderful juice and their undiscovered healing properties that I share in Thyroid Healing.

Celery strengthens hydrochloric acid in the gut and helps the liver produce bile to break down food. It also provides mineral salts that are anti-Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and help support the central nervous system with powerful electrolytes while they stabilize and support the adrenal glands. Celery has the ability to cleanse the thyroid of EBV toxins. It also bolsters the production of the thyroid hormone T3.

Apples are anti-inflammatory for the thyroid because they starve EBV. When their pectin enters the digestive system, it releases phytochemicals that bind onto EBV, shrouding the virus cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.

Ginger helps with nutrient assimilation and relieves spasms. Loaded with its own signature variety of bioavailable vitamin C, ginger is also a powerful antiviral. One of ginger’s special qualities is its ability to bring the body out of a reactive state by soothing nerves and muscles. Ginger helps bring balance and homeostasis to the thyroid, lifting it up if it’s hypo and calming it down if it’s hyper.

Cilantro is a miracle worker for EBV. Critical for binding onto the toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead that feed the virus. Also binds onto the EBV neurotoxins that, when loose in your system, can cause tingles and numbness, aches and pains, inflammation, depression, and anxiety.

Learn more about the foods that support healing of thyroid problems and many other symptoms and conditions in Thyroid Healing.


  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 1 bunch of cilantro
  • 2 to 4 inches fresh ginger


Run all the ingredients through the juicer (see recommended juicers below). Drink the juice immediately on an empty stomach for best results.

Alternatively, roughly chop the celery and apples. Add all of the ingredients to the blender. Blend the ingredients until liquefied and then strain. Drink the resulting juice immediately.


  • As I said, this juice can be customized to your taste preferences by substituting 2 cucumbers in place of the celery or 1 bunch of parsley in place of the cilantro.
  • Depending on the juicer, more or less ginger will be needed. Adjust the amount according to your taste.

Makes approximately 24 ounces

Looking For a Good Juicer?

If you’re searching for a good juicer, here are three options we like. Each juicer is different in the way it functions, how much juice it extracts, how much time it takes to use, and how much it costs. Take a look at these three juicers and see which feels best for you and your family’s needs

Unlocking the Secrets of the Microbiome


Credit: Paul Rogers

Modern technology is making it possible for medical scientists to analyze inhabitants of our innards that most people probably would rather not know about. But the resulting information could one day save your health or even your life.

I’m referring to the trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that inhabit virtually every body part, including those tissues once thought to be sterile. Together, they make up the human microbiome and represent what is perhaps the most promising yet challenging task of modern medicine: Determining the normal microscopic inhabitants of every organ and knowing how to restore the proper balance of organisms when it is disrupted.

Proof of principle, as scientists call it, has already been established for a sometimes devastating intestinal infection by the bacterium Clostridium difficile. This infection, popularly called C. diff, often occurs when potent antibiotics wipe out the normal bacterial inhabitants of the gut that otherwise keep it in check.

When all else fails to clear up a recurrent C. diff infection, treatment with a fecal transplant from a healthy gut presumed to contain bacteria that can suppress C. diff activity is often highly effective, with a cure rate in excess of 90 percent.

Under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health, a large team of scientists is now engaged in creating a “normal” microbiological road map for the following tissues: gastrointestinal tract, oral cavity, skin, airways, urogenital tract, blood and eye. The effort, called the Human Microbiome Project, takes advantage of new technology that can rapidly analyze large samples of genetic material, making it possible to identify the organisms present in these tissues….
