About Dr. Charo

Your success is my success.
As a scientist with a background in biomedical sciences, cancer biology and molecular metabolism, I spent over a decade at institutions such as MD Anderson Cancer Center and University of Miami, helping women deal with a variety of health related issues at the molecular and clinical levels. My research has lead me to value natural herbs over popping pills. At the same time, during my years teaching nutrition for pre medical and grad students, and working with celebrities such as Miss Florida contestants, NPC and bikini models as well as celebrities, I saw how little knowledge most people have about what the true meaning of healthy was, how often nutritious and healthy living are often associated with stress, hunger, deprivation and fad diets, and, how many women struggle with the pressure to look perfect. This background, coupled with the latest in scientific research, ancient herbal medicine, and my passion for helping women feel good about themselves, lead me to create and continually enhance the Hottie Detox brand. Hottie Detox is a scientifically backed program, that was born in 2011 with a mission to help women of all sizes, look good and feel great. I have combined ancient Chinese and Indian herbs, with the latest in scientific research in a unique formula to help women lose weight, quick, and without restrictive "dieting". Hottie Detox is created specifically for women with low self esteem and stubborn weigh issues. Hottie Detox is more than a product, it is a lifestyle you actually enjoy living and sharing with a community of women supporting each other.
