“I can remember going to Nancy's workshops years ago and listening to all the information and being completely overwhelmed but remembering Nancy's gentle approach and saying, "If you take just one piece of information away with you tonight and incorporate it into your lifestyle you've done a lot".
That is how it all began for me years ago, just one change at a time. I was in my early 40's then and thought that I was leading a so called "healthy lifestyle", but things were starting to change. I was starting to feel more fatigued, my doctor had diagnosed me with osteoarthritis in my knees for which I was taking Tylenol (because I didn't want to take the prescription drugs that the doctor recommended) and had great difficulty sleeping because of the pain. As well, I just physically didn't feel good about myself even though I am an aerobics instructor and was instructing about 9 classes per week.
It was then that I decided to try my first cleanse, needless to say I lasted one day. All the while I was still attending Nancy's workshops and hungry (no pun intended) for more and more information. Then came the spring of 2006 and another cleanse, so I gave it another try. This time I was able to stay on the cleanse for 5 days and had great success. I honestly thought that I would be tired, running to the bathroom every 5 minutes but the opposite was true. Okay I had a bit of a headache and the third day I felt a little nausea but after that my mind was so clear, I had energy and the bonus was that I lost 7 pounds.
I wanted to continue feeling this way and started to change my eating habits as a result by the summer of that year I had lost 30 pounds without even trying. I am off all medication for my knees and sleep like a baby, I can lift heavier weights and instruct more aerobics classes with energy to spare.
Nancy's programs, her dedication and passion to share what healthy living can do for you, her kind, gentle and reassuring way is what guided me on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. Nancy has made such an impact on my life that with her encouragement, support and mentorship I have enrolled in school to become a nutritionist. Thank you Nancy for helping and guiding me with my lifestyle change, I have never felt better. I only hope that I can touch as many lives as you have."
