My Background

My Training


With Ritva


Founder and Owner Ritva A Dale

Certified Health, Life, Career coach and Trainer as well as a Detox Expert  


Growing up in Finland, a healthy diet was implemented at a young age. It mainly consisted of vegetables from the family garden along with fish and meat that was organically caught by my father. Processed foods were almost non-existent and sweets were a rare treat.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between. This training is complemented by certification in Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner, Master Time Line Therapy™ Practitioner and Master Hypnotherapist from the Greatness Group in Toronto, Canada. Followed by my most resent certification that includes Trainer of Neuro-Linquistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy™ Techniques and Hypnotherapy from Tad James Co in Las Vegas, NV.​

I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including: 

  • Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd,  Founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
  • Deepak Chopra, MD, World Leader in Mind Body  Medicine, Director of Education at The Chopra Center, Bestselling Author
  • David Katz, MD, MPH, Authority on Preventive Medicine and Weight Management, Director of the Yale Prevention Research Center

  • Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, Paulette Goddard Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies and Public Health at New York University


After moving to the USA, I developed less healthy eating habits, acquired Lyme Disease, and started to suffer from Hypothyroidism. After both medical doctors and antibiotics failed to improve my health, I sought counsel from a nutritionist. The nutrition counseling was so effective that it inspired me to attend nutrition school. That was my light-bulb experience – due to a poor diet, my body wasn't healthy enough to fight illnesses. I returned to healthy eating, removed negative and limiting beliefs and only then was I able to keep the Lime disease and Hypothyroidism under control and improve my overall wellness.

Eye on Wellness

From the nutrition coaching training, I learned that a big part of overall health has to do with blood sugar control and when I learned of the benefits that raw cacao has to offer; it inspired me to create a product that would not only satisfy my sweet cravings without refined sugar, but would also come with added health benefits. It was too good not to be shared with everyone and that is how my other business Rawsome Fudge was born. 

My life experiences have confirmed that the link between a healthy diet, exercise and the elimination of disruptive negative emotions and limiting beliefs is the key to overall wellness. Since we are all unique, there is no 'one plan for everyone', therefore I have dedicated my career to finding ideal balance for my clients as a Rawchocolatier Wellness Coach.

I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and The Tad James Co where I studied a variety of dietary theories, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy™ Techniques and Hypnotherapy. 

"I have suffered with knee issues for twenty four years and was diagnosed with chronic daily headaches seventeen years ago, since starting to detox using the IonCleanse® my knee pain has almost disappeared and my headache pain has dropped significantly. I have tried just about everything over the past seventeen years to stop or relieve my head pain with little success. Other detox programs did not work as easily or effectively as the IonCleanse®. Ritva takes the time to explain what toxins the body is releasing. This cleanse WILL remain a part on my life going forward."

"If you have an open mind and want to use proven technics to improve your mindset and learn about your brain power, then try NLP and time line: i just went to a workshop and had a great experience. I learned about goal settings and how to make them work. i also had a breakthrough with an unresolved issue I had through a timeline exercise. Anyone can benefit from NLP!"

- Laurence, Kennett Square, PA

"Ritva is very professional and has helped me a lot. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and IBS. Ritva has helped me to choose foods which are healthy and have eased my problem. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to get her diet under control. I feel much better healthwise after consulting with Ritva"

- Gina H. Greco, Avondale, PA

"I came to Eye on Wellness because I have had a condition called Hashimoto's Disease for 5 years. It is an autoimmune disease that causes my body to attack my own thyroid gland causing it to decrease its function. Since I was diagnosed, I have been convinced that this condition could be reversed or at least it's effects minimized. With my research about thyroid and Hashimoto's disease I found an overwhelming amount of information regarding connection of nutrition to my condition and with all autoimmune diseases. However, I was very reluctant and a little overwhelmed to know where to start. At the same time, I would complain often of not feeling well after eating. And what I mean by not well, is a feeling of being overly full, often having severe stomach aches or cramping, bloating, and feeling heavy. So many times I said that I just ate too much, but I began to notice that I felt this way even after having what I considered a light healthy meal. So, when my traditional doctor was not able to recommend nutritional changes, my investigation began. Eye on Wellness, with Ritva's guidance, took me through the program changing out one food or group at a time, allowing me to notice how I feel. We created a nutrition plan that works for me, just for me. I have run the experiment over and over again, following the guidelines and then not, and it continues to show me that there are foods that I can digest better than others. My symptoms disappear when I eat right for me. Equally important is that I monitor my autoimmune condition by blood tests and it has improved significantly. Thank you Ritva! This ranks as the best thing I have done to make me healthier and feel great!"

Peace and Love,

"Ritva has been a huge help and guidance during this journey.  I have not only learned about food, how and what to eat, I have learned more about myself and my body.  After many attempts I have succeeded in losing weight (27 lbs to date) and more importantly I have changed my eating behaviors.  I am not "dieting" to lose weight and denying myself of food.  I am EATING my way to my body's ideal weight one healthy bite at a time. The best thing I have done for myself is invest in Ritva's knowledge, support and guidance. Thank you Ritva!"

-Lynn, West Chester, PA

"Ritva's 8-hour breakthrough was the best investment I did for me and consequently for my new family. Now I'm certain that my goals can be achieved, because now I HAVE GOALS. The processes were liberating. Why did I spend 6 years on a chair with Traditional Therapy when I could just have called Ritva to have it all sorted out in only few sessions!! Besides, The confidence she has in the results gave me the final push I needed to get started."

- Fabiana Bacchini, Toronto, Canada

"My experience working with Ritva has been very informative and interesting. She has explained how the body reacts to certain foods, the foods that are best for specific blood types, and the relationship of good foods. She also made me aware of the interaction of food, exercise, emotion, and spirituality to create well-being. She conducts her sessions in a very thorough and professional manner, and constantly strives to have her clients succeed. I highly recommend her as a professional, trained to improve one’s life."

"I did not have any pain in my knee yesterday or last night. You are phenomenal! Thank you."
