"Your route to wellness, find the root cause that other doctors have missed!"

Meet Me

I  lived in New York City until she became an environmental refugee. Toxin Loss of Tolerance (TILT), or multiple chemical sensitivity initially caused her to move to the mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Rita loves to write books on overcoming difficult illnesses as well as educating people at speaking engagements. Her personal experience of root causes of illnesses and years of research make her an expert in the field of detoxification, chelation of heavy metals and perceptual reframing techniques, etc.

Rita has a degree in Dental Hygiene, a Master’s in Social Work from New York University and a postgraduate degree in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. She has 12 years experience as a psychotherapist in her private practice in Greenwich Village, NYC., with a specialty in marriage counseling and hypnotherapy. She is a Master Herbalist and a Certified Nutritionist. Rita has her Doctor of Naturopathy from Trinity School of Natural Medicine. She will read your dental x-rays and work with your dentist in dealing with amalgam removal techniques as well as sources of infection in the mouth that can cause ill health.

Rita draws on her years of experience in different fields to combine mind, body and soul. Her personality is upbeat and vibrant. She has a passion for serving as her calling and mission in life.

From 79lbs to 115lbs she is healthy and vibrant. Dr. Ferraro practices in Albuquerque, NM . Rita is married to Don Shapiro, where they reside in the mountains of Cedar Crest, New Mexico (where she recovered)  with Giselle, and Pikachu...her cats. Her love is her vegetable garden. She enjoys long meditative walks in the Land of Enchantment!
