Health Coaching Testimonials
I can't say enough good things about Mara. She's a superhero in my eyes. She is the most knowledgeable person I know in the area of diet as it relates to healing. I've been eating SCD for my ulcerative colitis for over 10 years. Whenever I have a challenging question I can always count on Mara to be there with a clear, succinct, logical solution. She not only knows the "how to" for eating a proper diet, but she knows the "why's" and the interrelationships between various foods and supplements and nutrients and probiotics. Do you want to know if something is bioavailable in a particular form? Mara knows the answer. She's a whiz bang!

I know Mara Schiffren for many years. She is very knowledgeable. Her advise and recommendations were always priceless. She not only responded quickly, but she gave us her support and her kind heart. I used her experienced information a lot and always think about Mara with great respect. I am in remission now (I have Ulcerative Colitis and Hashimoto Disease), but she still advises me whenever I have a question or need a qualified suggestion, and I am very grateful for getting it. When my husband last year was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, I decided to talk to Mara about his health. I got a lot of essential information regarding the supplements for him. He uses them every day and it helps him to breathe easily. His pulmonary doctor was impressed by his Himalayan Salt Inhaler and was going to recommend it to his other patients. Mara's knowledge is great and she is open to help. My family wishes Mara the very best!

"Mara has been such a great help to me in the past few years in regards to my health problems. Besides answering my questions and before giving a recommendation, she takes the time to inquire about my specific condition, diet and symptoms. That is very assuring and makes me feel confident that following her advice will improve my situation. My health problems have improved considerably in the last years and I owe Mara a huge "thank you". She's always willing to listen and help. I couldn't have made it this far without her help and for this, I am forever grateful! Warmly,

Clear Beliefs Coaching Testimonials
Challenge - Thru the course of some belief work, Mara took me thru a deep Body Wisdom process focused on the complex feeling(s) pressing upon me regarding a life-path challenge and potential waaay serious fork in the road before me.
Action - By skillfully leading the dialogue, we ended up "interviewing" the entire complex of emotions and body feelings as a combined, high-grade entity and source of wisdom I didn't know I had.
Results - As it turned out, as Mara led the dialogue, it became clear this was a very high and wise part of my self and actually the antithesis of anxiety and forlornness - the deep feeling embedded in the issue/challenge I was immersed in. Looking back, the guidance I(we) received was amazing and has proven itself sage and true many times over since that 1st, excellent session with Mara.

Mara Schiffren was actually my training partner for the Belief Clear Coach Certification program so I got to work with her on many occasions over the course of several months. The greatest benefit from being coached by her was a sense of freedom I got knowing I could just BE myself without any judgment. I had never done parts work before and was a bit fearful of who might show up. Mara not only held the space for me to discover those other unknown aspects of myself, but lead by example in her playful way of discovering hers while allowing me to coach her. Thus, providing an uninhibited, authentic exposure of her own parts that allowed me to do the same when my turn came.

I have been very thankful for the wealth of information Mara has provided regarding natural remedies for gut and other health issues that I’ve struggled with over the past few years. For years, we were both part of a large support group for a special diet and she is considered the guru of the group – the expert who will always know exactly what one should do given a particular symptom. She is incredibly knowledgeable in functional medicine and has an in-depth understanding of what is needed to attain and maintain health. Her guidance is simple and easy to understand, and most importantly, her recommendations work.
