Doctor Charny is a modern medicine woman. She has the best diagnostic skills I have ever encountered. She combines all of her experience, learning and instincts to find out what's wrong. Then she uses all her experience, learning and research to show you a way out. In this world of compromised air, contaminated food and free flowing allergies, I have found a doctor who I totally, and I mean totally, trust. It's a big word, ""trust"".
I have referred many friends with the total confidence that comes from knowing that there is someone who understands my physical make-up better than I do myself. It is a very safe place to be. I consider myself very lucky, to be a long time patient of Dr Charny.

I have been a patient of Dr. Charny's for over six years, and she has treated me for a variety of symptoms over those years. I'm not certain I can fully communicate in words the respect and love I have for her as both a remarkable healer and a kind and compassionate person.
Dr. Charny has always given me her full attention during each appointment. I never feel rushed, she listens carefully to everything I share with her, and she answers every question I ask. Each time I've come in with symptoms, Dr. Charny has accurately identified what is out of balance and what I need to get back in balance. She is brilliant in the field of applied kinesiology and has used countless other healing modalities and nutritional expertise to support my health and healing. She is, from my experience, highly intuitive as well. One example of how Dr. Charny has impacted my life in a most profound and positive way: Several months ago I experienced a sudden onset of severe pain and swelling in all of my joints following the discovery of almost twenty insect bites on various places on my body. I was literally unable to move without assistance. Medical doctors, after drawing twenty viles of blood and taking nineteen x-rays delivered a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and told me I would have this disease the rest of my life and would need constant monitoring and medication. Thankfully, I am under Dr. Charny's care. After assessing me using applied kinesiology, she reassured me that what I was experiencing was an acute auto immune response to something I came into contact with. Further, she told me I would not need to be on medication and convinced me not to ""buy-into"" a diagnosis and ""become"" a disease. Five months later, under Dr. Charny's care, I am teaching, working out with a fitness trainer three time a week, ballroom dancing, writing a book and taking no medication whatsoever. My mobility in all of my joints is fine and I haven't experienced any pain or discomfort.
Over the years, I have referred at least fifteen people to Dr. Charny (family members, friends, and students), each having thanked me repeatedly; however, no one is more grateful than I am to have had the good fortune of finding such an incredible healer in the true sense of the word.

Since 1995 Dr. Charny’s brilliant, healing presence have helped me to maintain balance; sometimes it was the only place where I knew the space was strong enough and intelligent enough to hold me and heal me. For that I thank Dr. Charny more than I can adequately express here.

You have changed my life. You have helped my husband, children and grandchildren. You have helped so many people see the OTHER way to health and healing. I will be forever grateful for the vision that WE CAN participate in our own wellness.

Dr. Charny is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted naturopathic physician.
I've been her patient for years -- but only infrequently because I remain in good health, thanks in good part to her care. Her expertise, particularly with injuries and chronic conditions, which she addresses with an eclectic array of modalities, is reinforced by continual education in the latest treatment options. Her effectiveness as a healer is due also to great natural reserves of empathy and intuition. Her schedule generally is full, yet I've never known her to seem rushed, or to be too busy to give me her full attention as the moment requires. I rely on her without reservation in matters of health, and I recommend her without reservation to all, especially those with stubborn or difficult-to-diagnose ailments. I consider Dr. Charny a friend. A very good friend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Charny's for 15 years. She is the kindest, most caring and most effective holistic health care practitioner I know. She has seen me through several intense health issues, and I trust her more than any M.D. I work with, and that’s saying a lot, because I have great MD's! But her diagnostic skills surpass those of most traditional doctors, and she is also more thorough and knowledgeable in analyzing standard testing like blood tests when I bring them to her from my MDs. I recommend her regularly and everyone I have sent to her raves about her. In addition to her skills as a naturopath, she is the best chiropractor I have ever been to, and I have scoliosis and have been to many through my 56 years. Her Chiropractic is extremely precise and gentle and she works with the muscle and fascia in very sophisticated ways that allow the chiropractic adjustments to hold and be more effective. In particular, if you have issues like mine, of major mercury toxicity, and hormonal imbalances that woke me 12 to 15 times a night, and a generally damaged immune system that has always allowed infections to take hold regularly, she is a great resource and can make a huge difference. It took a while for her to get through the toxicity that was holding me back, but now I get healthier and stronger all the time, and not many people who are aging can say that!

Last spring, twenty minutes before I was leaving for the airport to fly out of the country, my gynecologist phoned me to let me know she had my pap results and that I was diagnosed with ""mild dysplasia"" (abnormal cells in the cervix often due to infection with HPV). I was informed I needed to schedule a colposcopy as soon as I returned. This exam could possibly include a biopsy followed by cryosurgery.
As always, I went to my trusted doctor, Dr. Charny, with this information. Dr. Charny reassured me that mild dysplasia was treatable and to enjoy my trip. When I returned, Dr. Charny began treating me. One of the reasons (and there are many) that I prefer having Dr. Charny address my health concerns, is because her methods of diagnosis and treatment are non-invasive, gentle, and often self-healing. After being a patient of Dr. Charny for over seven years and having experienced success in healing and/or recovering from every health challenge I have come across, I was confident Dr. Charny would be able to address this recent health challenge. I returned for a follow-up pap smear after six months, and two weeks later received a letter from my gynecologist stating that my pap results were negative (no dysplasia and no HPV).
I'm forever grateful to be gifted/blessed with Dr. Charny caring for my health.

Even though I had heard nothing but raves about Dr. Charny, I was still a bit skeptical. I also have a ""healthy"" skepticism about western medicine and have used a balance between western and alternative medicine for many years.
Over a short time last summer, I gained 10 pounds (even though I exercise daily & eat a low carb diet) and barely had enough energy to get through the day without a nap. Four different medical doctors simply said this were the symptoms of ""growing old"" or perimenopause & that I would just have to live with it. They took many tests that all came back ""normal"".
When I went to Dr. Charny, she did similar (and not so similar), albeit much more caring and attentive testing. She gave me some supplements & suggested a diet (just a few unexpected changes), and within four days I had lost four pounds & regained a LOT of my energy! Three months later, I have lost the 10 pounds & feel my body coming back to normal. In addition to being thorough, effective, and available I have found Dr. Charny to be very kind and loving. What a gift!

For the past 18 years, Dr. Charny has treated me for a number of imbalances, always helping to restore my strength, health and vitality. At one point, when I needed surgery, she fortified me for the procedure and accelerated my return to optimum condition. She's an expert and a continuing student in the field of healing and, though I'm in great health, when anything feels off, she's my first call.

Dr. Charny was recommended to me by two people I trust. One who has been seeing her for almost 15 years. The other about a year. When I first visited Dr. Charny six months ago, my body was out of balance, my emotions and hormones were all over the place and I was 25 pounds overweight. Because Dr. Charny is trained and certified in a number of different fields, she is able to address the whole body at once. Dr. Charny has addressed my nutrition with diet and supplements. She has also treated me with Chiropractic and Cranio-Sacral therapy. I have lost the weight and my body is more in balance than it has been in years. I am grateful to Dr. Charny for bringing me back to health from the inside out.

I have been a patient of Dr Charny for over 2 years. She is so knowledgeable about how our bodies work. I appreciate that she uses natural healing and focuses on getting to the source illness/issue. She is so caring and open to my questions.


Having suffered from migraines for the past 15 years I thought I had tried every possible remedy, with no luck whatsoever. I'd somewhat accepted that my only course of action was to take excessive amounts of powerful prescription medicine, isolate myself in a dark room and hope for the temporary relief sleep brings. Then I met Dr Charny. Having suffered 5-10 migraines a month for 15 years, I have had a grand total of 1 in the 12 months since my initial appointment. To call Dr Charny a miracle worker would bely her humble nature. She is kind, caring, considerate and perhaps most importantly makes you feel heard. She will patiently listen to everything you have to say, always making you feel that your opinion is appreciated, which I think is key to a holistic approach to medicine.

I think that we're on the right path and thank you Dr. Charny for your guidance and help. I'm pursuing...not perfectly but pretty close!...the suggested diet.  Losing weight and feeling better! Inflammation down and no RA 'flare ups'! While I'm not up to running a mile, and will never be, I'm very pleased with the direction I'm headed and how I feel right now.
