Here is what people say about us…

I want to give a heartfelt thank you to Carla Hightower, founder of Living Health Works. I started working with Carla as my health coach after being diagnosed as pre-diabetic. Diabetes is no stranger to my family and it’s no joke. My grandmother, mother, sister and aunt all died from complications of this disease, and it was knocking at my door. When I was diagnosed, my A1C was 6.4 (diabetic = 6.5). I called Carla and enrolled in her health coaching program. After 10 weeks, my A1C is reading a healthy 5.6 and I lost 11 pounds. Thank you Lord. Carla is very knowledgeable, patient and professional. I improved my numbers fairly quickly and got back to living a normal healthy lifestyle.
If you are a diabetic or have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, don’t accept it as your fate. Contact Carla Hightower. She can help you too!

My son recommended Dr. Carla Hightower and I have been meeting with her now for two months. Using her health coaching program, I am eating whole foods, and I have seen a vast improvement in my overall health and I no longer need insulin for my type 2 diabetes. My blood sugar went from 436 to 82 and my A1C went from 11.7 to 5.2.

After losing the weight, I love the way my clothes fit. I love the way I am feeling these days. Some days I feel like I’m in heaven because I feel so great. You are a wonderful teacher.
