It's been a fruitful 16 years since our grand opening in the year 2000. We began with a Parent Information Series in Burbank, CA with several guest speakers like Gerald Newmark, author of How To Raise Emotionally Healthy Children: Meeting The Five Critical Needs of Children...And Parents Too!, a nutritionist, a social worker, and a MD discussing chronic illness in children such as Sickle Cell Disease, Juvenile Diabetes, Pediatric Asthma and Pervasive Developmental Delays. Throughout the years, we continued focusing on a holistic approach to health treating such illnesses like depression, forming a miscarriage support group and a sickle cell support group.

With the publication of our book in 2009 - Creating Your Ultimate Self: The Body Dr. Rowley's 3-4-4 Nutritional Method and Movement and Thoughtful Exercise by Carolyn Rowley, Ph.D. and Brenda Grice Laue, D.C., over time we’ve evolved into focusing mainly on nutrition and sickle cell disease. As it pertains to sickle cell disease, we currently provide Patient Awareness via our three support groups and our annual educational seminar, Public Awareness and Outreach via canvassing and handing out materials at various area malls, and Provider Awareness via Inservice Training and our annual educational seminar.

As of 2015, in partnership with SCDAA, we have been selected as one of the community organizations to assist persons diagnosed with sickle cell disease to sign up for GetConnected, a sickle cell registry that will lend itself to be quite useful.

We hope that the information provided on this website has been helpful. If you did not find what you were looking for, please feel free to call us direct at: 818.940.0079 or e-mail us at:

We are honored to be able to serve you and bring you information that will assist in renewing your mind, body, and spirit. We envision a world that will someday brim over with joy, love, peace, happiness, and great mental and physical health.

Peace and blessings to you all!

Dr. Carolyn Rowley

Get Connected
In partnership with the SCDAA, Cayenne Wellness Center and Children's Foundation supports patients signed-up in the Get Connected registry. If you are a patient with Sickle Cell Disease or Sickle Cell Trait, please call us at 818-940-0079 to receive guidance from our friendly staff who will help you complete the registration process over the phone, or visit to complete your registration online.
Get Connected is a National patient-powered registry that allows those with sickle cell disease to enter their medical history online, in the secure Get Connected database. By doing so, the patient has access to their information, no matter where they are in the country. This lets them, or a hospital that is treating them, have up-to-date medical data. Other benefits of this registry are newsletters, community forums, and other sickle cell disease specific information.
The “Get Connected” registry is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL. Once you register you will receive an approval email link that allows you to go back into the registry and complete your profile. Please select the Cayenne Wellness Center and Children’s Foundation to make sure you are connected to receive information, updates and services from us.
