What members are saying

” I’ve been working with Jay and Jill for just over three months. At the outset I had specific goals in mind around what I wanted to achieve with their support and guidance. I gave them a list of health issues that I have struggled to find solutions for in more conventional health care settings. Suffice to say, in this short time, I’ve seen dramatic changes in almost every area that I have asked for their help on. The only thing that I’m frustrated by – is the fact that I didn’t meet them earlier in my life. They are lovely people, they are responsive and they bring something to the table that you won’t find through other care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend them to my closest family and friends.”

” Jill and Jay, through their research and in-depth knowledge of health therapy alternatives, were able to recommend a very simple, non-invasive treatment that has reduced my joint pain to near zero.  It’s been a major life goal of mine to live pain free and ski again, and Jay and Jill actually delivered on it.  They are nothing short of amazing. ”

– Geoff M. –

” Brain Fog Be Gone. Jay and Jill provided the attention and advice that I needed to understand where I was in my personal journey. During the first consult, I finally understood the true picture of my health in the last two decades, and received both details and advice about how to achieve my goals of weight loss, address premenopausal symptoms and prevent elevated blood sugars from my future! I lost 17 pounds in the first 3 months.  Also, I don’t feel tired anymore in the middle of the day but only when it’s time to sleep.  I do not seek a large coffee or smoothie around 3pm to give me more energy. I am so grateful for the invaluable service they gave. “

” I feel so much better!  My memory has improved, and I feel more youthful ” 

– Shelli C. –

” As I went through menopause I found my jeans didn’t fit anymore, hated the muffin top I was developing, felt very uncomfortable, out of shape, lethargic, just couldn’t shake the last 10 lbs no matter what I did. Jill and Jay developed an easy to follow program, and the rest is history.  I just turned 60 and never looked or felt better! Lost 10 lbs effortlessly within a few weeks, my vitality increased, energy through the roof, happier, and the best part, no muffin top! Jill and Jay are the best team for getting me back to my happy, healthy, slim self! “
