“The determination I’ve seen in my two daughters and the different direction they’ve made in their life, their way of thinking, their way of eating, made me feel: What am I missing?”

Improvements with: Quit Smoking, Wine Patterns, Long-Term Lifestyle Change, Mother-and-Daughter Health Vacation, Bowel Health, Strength and Stamina.

Was smoking to copeLost desire to smoke within 3 months after the program, and am still smoke-free 2 years later.

Experience Highlights:

  • Detox:  The drinks – I did really feel like it really cleansed me, made me feel good, light.
  • Structure: Walks, activity programs – all of it in 2 weeks made me aware how important it is to be physically, socially and mentally active. Along with healthy eating, rest and being grateful for everything. Those 2 weeks brought back to me how important that is in my life.
  • Group Participants: Met some absolutely fantastic people, the companions in the program became great friends.
  • Staff: Instructors, the therapists. Everybody…It seemed like they all were waiting for me to come.
  • Lifestyle Education: Enjoyed knowing how to cook raw/healthy food…The different things that change in your kitchen, the books you read, the recipe books, the ideas, your conversations…Another thing you notice when you travel – you are looking for those little vegetarian restaurants –and they are such a neat little find, they are so dedicated, it inspires you. It is so great to have back-ups or an excitement of it…I am going to the farmer’s market to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, take time to look at what I am buying…
  • New Healthy Family Connection and Transformation: It changed my life and life of my daughters. They are still both very much on the program. A lot of times when we got together we talked about a raw dish they’ve cooked…Desserts are really a lot of fun conversation. They are so delicious! When you get together with like-minded people, you get ideas, discover those fruit and vegetables you never tried. Discover a new dressing. A different look on life that is exciting…The shows (food demos) are so valuable, because they give you insights into someone’s journeys.
  • Natural Quit Smoking: As I was implementing these changes in my life, I quit smoking. I was still smoking for about 3 months after the program, but not as heavy. It was like a process that went along with the way that I was eating. It just was easy then. It was 2 years since I haven’t had it. Nor had a desire. Which was very important.
  • Summary: Everything is waiting here for people to come and be alive again.
