Alsuna’s Health Solutions

An Opportunity for a Business Partnership

by Melissa LaScaleia

Alsuna Roland is a health and wellness coach originally from the islands of Trinidad and Tobago.

“My goal is to help people build their own roadmap to health, then they can walk that path at their own pace,” she says. “I share the science, my knowledge, and what has worked for me, and guide people from that place.”

Alsuna’s place of knowledge is considerable.

She has undergraduate and graduate degrees in the field of bacteriology and microbiology, and worked for the NY State Institute for Basic Research as a research scientist/microbiologist.

She was in charge of the clinical laboratory in microbiology, which encompassed bacteriology, parasitology and mycology, for ten years. She also opened the first Caribbean restaurant and bakery on Staten Island, called Alsuna’s Caribbean Cafe, where she made healthy food true to her roots.

When Alsuna’s father was diagnosed with prostate cancer, she switched gears, searching full time for answers to help him heal. In the process, she discovered why disease can’t live in an alkaline environment— and specifically how to balance the alkalinity of the body with each unique blood type.

Her quest took her to India, where she studied Ayurveda and homeopathy. She hypothesized that the body needs to be cared for holistically— physically, mentally and spiritually— to function and thrive. This is known as homeostasis.

From her studies, she was able to put to rest the question that plagued her: why two people with the same dis-ease could have such different outcomes— one getting better and the other not.

“There’s a mental cause attached to a physical illness, and they’ve proven it,” she says. “And once we can identify the trauma that’s held in that organ, then the physical healing process can begin.”

When she returned from India, Alsuna started her own wellness business incorporating everything she learned. She focussed her program on helping people in four main areas— hydration, detoxification, nourishment, and exercise— the latter in whatever form a person most enjoys.

“In my more than twenty years of practice as a wellness coach, the key factor, I’ve found, is hydration,” she says. “The human body is 70% water; the brain is 85% water. However, not all water is the same. When I discovered electrolyzed reduced water, that’s when my business in terms of wellness, became a lot easier. Simply by hydrating with it, a lot of other symptoms and imbalances disappeared. My clients raved about the many positive results they experienced.”

Today, Alsuna has shifted her focus to helping people stay well before they get sick, prevention being the more economical and peaceful option. And she’s looking for people who have a passion for wellness to partner with her.

“2020 changed the world,” she says. “My focus now is on total wellbeing. What has caused me to evolve my business is the awareness that it’s not just water that is so important— we need to heal the gut and the brain. Science is convinced that there is a direct connection between the gut and the brain, and health and having a healthy gut microbiome.”

Alsuna acts as a mentor for people who want to begin or add on to their personal health and wellbeing business, either through product promotion, networking, or direct partnering.

“This is an opportunity for people who want to add an additional revenue stream or add on to a business they’ve already started,” she says. “You don’t need to have experience in this industry either, just a passion to learn and listen to people.”
