Let us introduce Dr. Layla Sade, Ph.D., CNC, AANC, ADA;
According to the World Health Organization, "health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being." I believe that optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my specialty to the community.
I have my Doctorate in Holistic Nutrition, Masters in Food Science, and a varied background in Chemistry. My diverse studies enable me to create a different perspective catered for each individual. I analyze biological/chemical problems and mechanisms and incorporate my knowledge of the best natural foods and ingredients into each individual's diet, to fit their needs. I perform a wellness consultation that takes into account diet, nutritional supplementation, exercise, mind & body imbalances, and alternative healing.
When approaching adults, it is important to remember every person is an individual, and everybody's needs and sensitivities are unique, particularly in terms of diet and lifestyle. In order to understand each person's specific health condition, weaknesses and requirements, I spend two to three hours evaluating each patient's specific health data, providing them with a personalized report that will feature report of findings, corrective recommendations and validation of those recommendations. In addition to diet, herbs, nutritional supplements, exercise and stress reduction methods, I discuss the concepts of detoxification and many other healing modalities as they apply to every person's needs.
In children, the holistic approach can make an incredible impact in their lives. The typical child's many exposures to overly refined foods, excessive sugar, artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives, herbicides, second-hand smoke, environmental poisons, premature vaccinations and pharmaceutical drugs are creating a toxic effect on our children, contributing to a myriad of escalating health afflictions.

What is holistic nutrition?
Holistic Nutrition uses natural, whole foods and nutritional supplements to detoxify, rebuild, and balance the whole person. Why? It’s simple. We believe a balanced, holistic diet will help you achieve mental, physical and spiritual health.
Holistic Nutrition is a preventative measure | Mainstream medicine does not emphasize the significance of poor nutrition as a major cause of a wide range of health disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is often confusing.
Protecting your body against illness should be your daily mission. Holistic Nutrition can benefit the average person without any ailments, or as a modality for healing or symptom management for people living with chronic illness. Physicians agree that diet and nutrition have a profound impact on mental and physical health. Bringing the wrong foods into your body can lead to many debilitating psychological and physical symptoms and degenerative health conditions.
If you’ve been trying every diet in the universe- stop! By yo-yo dieting you slow down your “metabolic engine” and you make future weight loss attempts even harder. It is time to put an end to low calorie, high protein diets that offer quick fixes and temporary solutions. If you are looking to lose weight and finally put an end to emotional eating, so it is time for you to start a new unique lifestyle program specially designed for you.
This 12-week program is designed to test your personal DNA in order to give you a head start on your nutrition goals. This concept was designed to test if your body responds to fats, carbs, or both. It gives you a better understanding of how your body is made, and to help you to be cautious of what foods to stay away from.
This program will entail Individualized diet plan to increase fat metabolism and if followed accurately, it will result in up to 10 pounds of fat loss in 30 days.
Your test results aren’t just a list of your gene variants. You’ll also get insights and tips, so that you can make choices that are right for you. And while your profile will let you know if you’re predisposed to certain traits, it’s not a diagnosis, so interpret your results with care.
12-week weight loss program include:
Personal Health Coaching: You will receive 1:1 coaching once a week for the duration of the program. Your holistic doctor will always be there to support and guide you through your program and help you reach your weight loss goals.
Meal Plans and Recipes: Your doctor will learn about your lifestyle. They'll consider the foods you like and the foods you dislike and create a tailored meal plan just for you—with recipes! You will also learn the fundamentals of the meal portioning part of the program, how to eat the foods you want and lose weight in the process, for the rest of your life.
Natural Health Supplements: You will receive Weight Control & Metabolism Boosting Natural Health Products to support each month of your weight loss journey, if needed. Our Natural Health Supplements are clinically tested and made from the highest quality, safest, and most effective ingredients available.
Weekly Vitamin injections: You will receive vitamin B-complex, Vitamin B12, and Lipotropic vitamin injections to facilitate the fat loss process.
How does it work?
1. Reducing your overall caloric intake while providing the right food combinations helps stimulate your metabolism to provide additional calories from fat stores. The process of breaking down fat into useable calories is called “Ketosis”. As long as you don’t take in any excess carbohydrates, fats or excess calories, this process works very efficiently at releasing stored energy and food value from your fat cells.
2. Break the Sugar Cycle by eliminating sugars and simple carbohydrates and by being in the state of ketosis. This stabilizes blood sugars and reduces cravings, and fatigue.
3. You’ll enjoy real organic fresh foods at every meal. You don’t need to buy costly frozen dinners or artificial meal-replacement supplements. Fresh organic meals will be provided based on your dietary recommendations. This helps ensure long-term proper eating habits, patterns, and overall lifestyle that you can sustain.
4. Vitamin, mineral supplements, and medical foods are used to help ensure your body has the additional amounts required to provide nutritional requirements. This works in conjunction with eating the right foods to prevent the side effects of poor dieting such as hunger, cravings, headaches, fatigue and irritability that can lead to failure.
5. Frequent 1-on-1 visits with the doctor provide ongoing personal support to keep you accountable and on track for success. We help you break out of old bad habits faster, while establishing and reinforcing your new healthy eating habits and behaviors to develop long-term sustainable lifestyle change.
6. Once you reach your goal weight, we work with you to customize a Maintenance Plan to re-introduce most foods back into your diet and give you the tools to maintain your new healthy weight for life. We will follow you over the long term to ensure your behavior changes are in place.
7. You don’t need to exercise to be successful on the Dr. Layla's diet program, though it is encouraged for overall health and fitness when it is safe to do so.
Like many of the patients who join our program, you might have pre-existing medical conditions like high cholesterol, hypertension or diabetes that require medication and medical supervision. As you get our program and regain your health, you may be able to reduce or even eliminate your expensive and inconvenient medications. And you will be amazed at how quickly we can make that happen.
We believe in a natural, well-balanced food intake alongside vitamin and mineral supplements, ensuring your body has all the nutrients it needs to be healthy. Our patients report feeling much more energetic while experiencing an overall sense of well-being.
Our clinical experience has shown improvement in the following diseases.
If you have Diabetes and lose the extra weight, you can achieve better control of your blood sugars and reduce or eliminate your need for diabetic medications, including insulin. Our expertly-trained doctors and nurses monitor you throughout the program and can help you prevent the very serious complications of diabetes, such as blindness, amputations, heart attacks, impotence, etc. as you lose weight. Blood tests may show your diabetes no longer exists. Imagine no longer needing to do finger-prick blood sugar tests, or inject insulin or take pills!
The best preferred treatment for high cholesterol is to eat properly and get to a healthy, normal weight. Over 90% of our patients with high cholesterol can achieve and maintain normal cholesterol levels without medications as a result of losing their excess weight with our healthy diet program. You may not need to take cholesterol lowering pills ever again.
High Blood Pressure & Hypertension
Healthy weight loss will result in a lowering of elevated blood pressure. With our program, over 90% of our patients can stop all blood pressure medications at a normal weight.
Ulcers and Hyperacidity
Following our Diet contributes to a reduction in the amount of stomach acid produced. Our patients notice quick relief and can reduce or stop using antacids within days.
Rheumatoid Arthritis patients also achieve significant benefits. With our diet and weight loss, there is reduced swelling, better movement, and reduced pain in the small joints of the fingers, hands, and feet. This means better mobility and reduced or eliminated medications. The better the weight loss, the closer to a healthy weight you get – the better the results!
Do you suffer from back, hip, or knee pains? Losing even 15 lb can produce significant benefits. Losing the extra weight removes a great deal of stress from your joints to achieve better joint movement and mobility, and much less pain. Most of our patients who have been previously advised to replace a hip or knee joint have avoided surgery and function with mild analgesics daily, like Advil or Tylenol, after significant weight reduction.
Proper dieting and proper blood sugar management helps control mood changes and depression associated with hormone imbalances. You should be able to reduce any antidepressant medications and you will feel normal again. Our patients marvel at the improvements they experience.
Migraine headaches can be precipitated by some foods and by preservatives in foods. Patients on this diet experience fewer migraine headaches and less severe headaches. We advise our patients to use only freshly prepared foods and avoid having anything from a mix or a can that has preservatives. Avoiding all dairy products has also proven very effective in providing relief.
Calcium deposits and plaques can be removed from arteries, including coronary arteries, with a proper diet and healthy weight loss. This results in better circulation to your heart muscle and improved heart function, so your heart does not need to work as hard to circulate blood to all your tissues. This can reduce or eliminate your need for heart medications and help prevent heart attacks and strokes.
Many overweight patients are prone to developing gallbladder stones. Diets that are not properly balanced can cause protein breakdown and may cause gallstone formation. Our diet will not cause stones to develop. If you do have gallstones, this low fat diet will help avoid colic. You need to inform us of any previous symptoms of indigestion or abdominal pain. Our doctor may order an ultrasound to assess the gallbladder.
Fatty Liver Disease
Being overweight may result in fat storage within the liver. This can cause damage to liver function. Our physicians will test for fatty liver disease when indicated. Our clinical experience has shown that patients on our diet reduce fatty liver storage and improve liver cell function.
Obesity has been associated with an increased chance of developing this disease. The earlier you lose weight, the better your chances at prevention.
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Lactose Intolerance, Crohn’s Disease
Stomach cramps, loose bowel movements, and mucous in the stool all improve with our diet. We recommend avoiding all dairy products along with the fat restrictions. Our patients get long term relief and comfort by following these food restrictions into the Maintenance program and beyond.
In addition to diet, herbs, nutritional supplements, exercise and stress reduction methods, I will discuss with you the concepts of detoxification and many other healing modalities as they apply to your individual needs.
It would be helpful to keep a one- or two-week diet log so that I can discuss what changes may be needed with regard to your current food choices.

BIA Complete Body Composition Testing
Medical Detox program
Metabolic detoxification is a targeted nutritional therapy that enhances your body’s natural purification process to help eliminate unwanted chemicals or harmful compounds.
Is your body craving a Detox?
“Detox” used to mean many things, which may be part of the reason for the discrepancy. To some, it might simply be drinking lemon juice in water, sitting in a sauna, or maybe doing a juice fast. However, within Functional Medicine, detox has a specific definition: it is the process of reducing the body’s toxic load by lessening exposure to harmful chemicals we are taking in, while simultaneously implementing nutrition and lifestyle strategies to promote efficient elimination of toxins from the body.
This detox Program enhances the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process while providing adequate fuel for both cleansing and other daily activities–supporting energy metabolism and overall well-being.
Are you experiencing any of the followings?
Lack of Energy
Picking up every cold as a result of your weak immune system
Live or Work Around Environmental Pollutants
Have Occasional Digestive Discomfort
Suffering from Excessive Acne
If you answered yes to any of the above, then maybe it’s time to hit the “reset button” and do yourself a favor by considering detoxification!
What does the program ENTAIL?
Science-based method to help facilitate the removal of undesirable compounds from the body*
Easy-to-follow 10- day detoxification programs
Comprehensive support, including a program guide with easy-to-follow instructions, menu plans, recipes, and online tools
How does it work?
PHASE I–Functionalization: Enzymes in the liver break down xenobiotics (foreign chemical substances), which produces highly reactive, free radical molecules that can impact cellular function unless further processed.
PHASE II–Conjugation: Large molecules join together with modified xenobiotics to produce water-soluble substances that could be removed from the body.
PHASE III–Elimination: During elimination, water-soluble substances are excreted mainly via the urine or stool.
The Detox Program enhances the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process while providing adequate fuel for both cleansing and other daily activities. Getting healthier is important — and so is feeling your best. This Program will show you how to do both in just 10 days.
