Dave Tyler“You know those people in your life who just manifest beauty in its simplest form? Those people who stop to smile and take in the loveliness of it all because it’s against their nature to see anything else? Rosa brings out that marvelous light within me. She has an innate ability to positively inspire people to seek knowledge and understanding of all of life’s creations.

Once I connected with Rosa I’ve always had a place to turn to keep warm and happy … no matter what my life throws at me. She connects people. She inspires words. She intrinsically shines.”

“Rosa’s boundless enthusiasm, focus, and commitment to wellness and personal development are contagious and admirable. Her caring and interest in people and their well-being are evident in everything she does. Rosa is a bundle of energy and the glue that binds the group together. She works tirelessly and always with a smile to make things happen.

It’s exactly this quality of spirit that’s also reflected by the members of the CT Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance. I suspect that Rosa’s leadership, shining example and generosity have a lot to do with how the group has developed and grown over the years.”

She draws you in with her words which are both uplifting and motivating. She has the ability to make you feel so special and to let you know that anything is possible in life If you are willing to try. I find myself looking forward to hearing what she has to say next. Even when I’m having a bad day her words will make me smile.”

Dijana Ivanac“Rosa Conti is a wholehearted smile with a welcoming face that lights up the room. She exudes warmth and positive intention at every encounter. She founded The Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance, a group for like-minded individuals that comes together to share, encourage, support and acquire knowledge to improve the primary aspects of their lives linking to health and wellness. It has become my greatest source for self-improvement and it is a wonderful asset to our community.  

Her passion and spirituality and gratitude are strong and these show in her inspirational and uplifting writings. She inspires me to be kind to others and prompts me to love myself. Rosa is on a constant quest to empower lives and offer spirit-giving guidance. Thank goodness she has found her calling, as so many of us benefit from it.”



Lisa Hunihan Sugrue“Over a year ago I found your CHHLA Meetup group and attended several times. I just wanted to take this time to say thank you. Although I’ve been on the path of living green, alternative care and supplementation for many years, the topics you hosted opened me up to so much more. The exposure to the concept of souls and the coaching I began with one of your workshop presenters, Kelly Ann Matuskiewicz, has led me to a place in my journey where I am participating in a program at Hartford Family Institute and growing personally and learning to accept my process and the time it takes (struggling with this concept).

I just wanted you to know that you, following your passion, touch people in ways that wouldn’t always be apparent to you. Thank you.”

Victoria Ann“I met Rosa Conti in 2009, as the founder of the Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance. We made a deep connection as we shared similar family health concerns, and parallel ideas around lifestyle and wellness of mind, body, and spirit.

Rosa has a unique ability to listen, provide a safe, supportive, loving atmosphere, and encourage your personal growth. She shares her unlimited abundance of love, friendship, knowledge and resources by organizing amazing public workshops, seminars, documentaries, etc. Rosa leads by example: by making healthy choices for herself, by educating our community and the world around her, and by inspiring and encouraging others to do the same.

I soon found out that Rosa was a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition’s health coaching program. She inspired and encouraged me to seek continued education with IIN based on the beliefs and goals she knew I had for myself. I was blessed when she offered me a full scholarship to attend IIN. Knowing Rosa has changed my life. Being able to become an IIN student has changed my life. Rosa is a dear friend and mentor. I’m excited to one day pay this forward.”

I am so thankful for her hard work, dedication, and determination to gather like-minded people together to share information on energy medicine, holistic therapies, and nutrition. I have learned so much and can honestly say that these events have assisted me in transforming my life. The love and positive energy I feel at every workshop is wonderful and inspiring. Thank you so much Rosa! You are a shining star and an inspiration!”

Caring For You


Char Marie

“My first experience working with Rosa was as a presenter to her Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance group, when I taught about acupuncture, qigong and Chinese medicine. She is a warm and receptive host and very easy to work with, and does a lot to promote the talks and activities of the group. I had the most pleasant experience presenting to this group, and would definitely do it again. Rosa is easy to work with and helpful in making the presentation flow nicely, and also does a great job at getting the word out to everyone!

Since I first talked to this group it has grown much larger, but Rosa still brings her warm and friendly feeling to the group events. The group has fostered many good friendships, and has made positive changes in the community. It’s a joy to go to a meeting and hear the talk among newcomers and long-time members, who share ideas on healthy lifestyles, but also take it one step further out into the world, where real friendships are made. To me, that is what a group like this is all about – making changes in the heart, first, and then sharing with the community by example.

Rosa serves the community by bringing interesting speakers, documentaries, and health-related activities to her audiences. She is a great organizer, and a friendly moderator at discussions, too. It’s an honor and pleasure to work with her, and count to her among my friends.”

Sharon Werth“Rosa and I met in 2008 through the Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance (CHHLA) group she founded. As one of the group’s early members, I watched Rosa build and nurture the group from its infancy. Rosa is a dedicated, detail-oriented leader who puts loving intention and considerable planning into each and every event. CHHLA events are both interesting and educational. Rosa creates a supportive and inspirational learning environment. There is never pressure to commit to an approach which may not align with your personal journey. Rosa’s positive attitude is contagious. Not only does she change the world around her, but she inspires others to do the same.

Through the CHHLA, Rosa has introduced me to several practitioners I use regularly, as well as friends that have been a positive influence. The CHHLA also introduced me to topics which I found fascinating and was inspired to explore them in further detail, seeking a more formal education. Rosa is an amazing leader who is extremely passionate about what she does, and I fully recommend her for any opportunity in line with her many passions.

Helene Cort“I have known Rosa for most of my life, having first met her as a 10-year old when at school together in Stamford, CT. Moves across the oceans meant that we lost touch for many years but the wonder of the Internet and social networking have brought us back together and I am so very, very thankful that our paths have crossed again.

Rosa is without a doubt THE most positive, energetic, love-filled, gorgeous person I know and I am so proud and thankful to be her friend. Where Rosa is, there is positive energy working its magic – rest assured!”

I know of no other person with a bigger heart. I am so glad that I stumbled upon the Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance group in 2009. I have grown in many ways to improve my health, my mind, my spirituality, my relationships and the list goes on and on. Rosa, I love you. Stay beautiful.”

“Rosa and I have worked together on a number of initiatives. She is proactive in her work and anticipates needs and communication strategies before they have been articulated. She has the ability to both see a project from the 30,000 foot view and, at the same time, execute at the ground level so that all action items are attended to. Her spirit of inclusion works to draw in folks who might otherwise stay on the sidelines. When I see Rosa is on a team, I know we are going to be successful!”

Chapter Director & Development Agent 


kevin before and after rosa conti website“I joined your Connecticut Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance Meetup group in October of 2009, and with each event I would learn a little bit more about living healthy, and then I’d research further information on the Internet. Although a good part of my diet for the first couple of years was still what I’m now able to recognize as nutrient poor, or even unhealthy, it took some time for me to develop a functional understanding of living a healthy lifestyle.

It was when I learned about Gerson Therapy and how it reverses so many chronic diseases (and even heals advanced cancers), that I began to see for the first time that food TRULY is medicine – but it can be poison too.

I learned that what we put into our bodies absolutely matters.

Last year, in May of 2012, I finally got to a point where I put together all that I had been learning from your meetup events and other sources over the last three years or so, (Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, Dr. William Davis, etc.) and I began eating really healthy.

At the time I weighed 253 pounds, and being 6 feet tall I was on the verge of being obese. (Look at the before and after pictures.) I starting eating big organic salads with nuts, berries and seeds, and started eating my own homemade super healthy vegetable-bean soups almost every day. I bought organic fruits and vegetables as much as I could, (I learned about the “Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen”) and I cut out all kinds of processed foods and nutrient-poor foods after learning about the terribly unhealthy ingredients in so many agribusiness food products today. I began juicing and making healthy smoothies as well.

For more than a year now, I have maintained eating probably 95% high nutrient foods on a regular basis. Now I am 183 pounds – that’s 70 pounds less than I was just over a year ago, and it has happened without any dieting. I did not think in terms of weight loss and restriction and limitation; I only thought in terms of eating for health, eating foods for the nutrients in them, something I learned from Dr. Joel Fuhrman and his PBS specials – so I never pressured myself the way I did when I was on diets.

But it’s not just weight loss that I’ve experienced over the last 14 months. I feel so much BETTER now. I don’t have the sluggishness that I used to think was normal. I also do yoga and exercise three times a week since I’ve learned how important exercise is along with nutrition for staying healthy. My chiropractor, who is very knowledgeable in nutrition, has told me that I have added YEARS onto my life by getting healthy. Many friends and relatives have told me that not only do they notice that I’m in great shape, but they also comment that I look HEALTHY, my skin complexion and physical energy being two clear examples.

Thank you again Rosa, for what you have created with the CT Holistic Health & Lifestyle Alliance meetup group. It absolutely makes a real difference in people’s lives. I am living proof of that. It was your Meetup group that gave me the initial start back in October of 2009 to begin thinking in terms of living a healthy lifestyle. It took until May 2012 – two and a half years later – to acquire enough knowledge to become really functional with it all, but look where I am now!

I am really grateful for all the ongoing meetups you put together, because they allow me to continue to maintain a positive focus toward a holistic healthy lifestyle, and to expand my awareness of healthy living, as I still have lots to learn. Thank you so much!”
