Nancy, I love being a member of your Women’s Health Academy.

I always want to hear from experts about the latest “true” health findings (not what the mainstream media tells us) and you provide that. Thank you so much for providing this vital resource. It’s definitely one of the best investments I’ve made!

Jodi Keizer Graber. Bravo! Wellness

The member site turned my life around

Between the interviews and coaching online, my life is totally different. I gave up a life-long addiction to diet soda, sugar and wheat. I’ve lost weight and I’m much healthier. What I like best is Nancy’s gentle encouragement. There was no pressure to do things her way or in a certain time period. I like that I can listen to her interviews when I have some free time. She is very knowledgeable, yet compassionate and supportive.

I looked forward to each new session with much anticipation

Before I discovered the Healthlady.com, I had been searching for one source or a GOTO spot for my health and well being information. I have since joined your health academy, participated in your weekly teleseminars and most recently joined in on your sprouting seminar and health bootcamp. The information you provide is extensive, relevant, practical and very useable. I looked forward to each new session with much anticipation.

At 59, I have never looked as good nor felt better.

  • Why did you decide to try my private consultation program and cleanse workshop?

I have been working with Nancy for a number of years. I held a high pressure job as a member of the senior staff team in a school board, was always on the road and in meetings both during the day and evenings. Although I was conscious of my unhealthy lifestyle (irregular meals, little exercise during the week and a maximum of 4-5 hours of sleep per night), I felt that it was mostly out of my control. Every once in a while, I would sign up for one of Nancy’s workshops and for an exercise class. I wanted a more healthy lifestyle but thought that I didn’t have the time to pursue it.

I have learned so many good things through this cleanse

I did the Cleanse for 5 days! I absolutely did not miss the the animal protein, I did not have any chicken or fish either. I lost 6 pounds. I walked a lot (5 days out of 7, from half an hour to 50 minutes each time). I practice yoga a few times a week. I felt really good, was not tired, I was surprised at how easy this cleanse was. The best feeling was never to feel bloated.

Overall, I’m really happy about the cleanse. I am definitely going to maintain the plans. I have just ordered my juicer and plan to start juicing.” I am also a member of the Academy! Great Learning Tool.

Perhaps That is Why your Program Sticking to the Natural Basics Works so Well

I know I will continue that step-by-step climb to a healthier life because of things I have learned in your program. Some of the precepts I build that statement on are the great supplemental materials that I know I will refer to often, the first week preparing for success – evaluating the cupboards and planning my goals, and the last week interview on organizing.

I have lost 22 pounds and feel so much more energetic and alert

For me, Nancy’s cleanses have become part of an ongoing maintenance program. I started her cleanses this past spring and have done 3 of them so far. To date I have lost 22 pounds and feel so much more energetic and alert. It feels so great to be healthier and know I’m finally providing my body so much more of what it’s been needing for so long. Nancy provides a wealth of information that involves not only the cleanses themselves, but so many other topics that are critical to improved health and wellness in all aspects of our lives.

Maria B., New York 

Being able to communicate with Nancy through the forum was like she was with me everyday

Nancy’s program is an essential part of my detox – many many times I reffered to it, either for the recipes or the tips for healthy habits – also the forum was a great resource when reading the questions and answer made by the other participants. The fact that it was open for one month was definitively a must. Being able to communicate with Nancy through the forum was like she was with me everyday. I will keep my good habits : no sugar, no gluten, and good green juices in the morning. So, for sure I will do the program again, and recommend it to others.

Johanne Chalifoux, Montreal

The information you provided through your program has been life changing for us

After starting the Detox Program, within a few days we noticed several changes. I used to get muscle cramps when I tried to go to sleep at night, but they have stopped. I also used to wake up feeling stiff and sore, but I no longer have that problem. The arthritis pain in my hands has diminished considerably.

Thanks, Nancy! I feel successful!

My goal with this plan was to establish healthier eating habits. I pre-cleansed with juices and smoothies for 3 days. I did this first because I felt I needed to really get conscious of what I was eating and to reset my expectations. I then started on Plan B adding green juices because my body really needs the nutrients.

Nancy, Your program is amazing!

I completed my seven days and feel fantastic!

What’s even more amazing is the mental shift I’ve experienced from healthy eating, nutrition, and overall health care. Your book, the forum, and the weekly teleclasses were all so supportive. And I feel like I have a more solid base to use on my path to health. I’ve highly recommended your Women’s Health Academy and the detox program to many friends, especially after so many have commented on seeing such a positive change in me. The proof is in the pudding, or should I say in the juice?!

All the best.

It opened my eyes to all the choices in my life that could be a bit healthier

After looking at many different ones, I chose Nancy’s for several reasons……I could make my own food, there was an abundant amount of information to read on how to live a healthy lifestyle and the concept of an interactive forum and community as I was doing my cleanse was very intriguing.

Most importantly, it appeared to be DOABLE, especially with 4 kids and my busy lifestyle!

What I found was more than just a cleanse, it opened my eyes to all the choices in my life that could be a bit healthier. It made me really think about ALL the toxins out there…not just the food choices or beauty products but the friendships and stress levers that play an important role in all our lives.

I always learn and come away with new ideas...

I have been to many of Nancy's workshops ... And never come away disappointed... I keep coming back because I always learn and come away with new ideas... She never stops improving and expanding her program.... And I believe we all need a mentor to coach us through the challenging times...highs and lows..in our lives...I recently came across a quote: A fool with a plan will outsmart a genius without a plan every time!....Nancy's program provides this plan ... She's already done all the research and figured out what works and what doesn't work..so it really doesn't get any easier than that....

I always leave feeling empowered.

I have attended a few of Nancy's workshops and purchase her new program and I can honestly say that they are always very inspirational and full of valuable information. Nancy's passion and knowledge for a healthy lifestyle keeps me coming back for more….. I always leave feeling empowered and with so many new healthy ideas and new recipes. I have realized that a healthy lifestyle and attitude is what I am striving for. One of the most valuable lessons that is common throughout the workshops is that “You can do anything you set your mind to”. The information presented is simple and all the tools for success are also available. Thank you Nancy for your support and for sharing your wealth of knowledge. I truly appreciate and I am very grateful for all that you have done for me.

I am eager to commence the plan before me.

It was such a pleasure to both meet you and learn from you last night. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop which was well worth the drive. Having the ability to see you demonstrate how to make and do things was very beneficial. I am eager to commence the plan before me, following a little “de-cluttering” next week to ensure I get the most out your lessons.
Thanks so much

I do not feel hungry during the day, wow!

It’s been a busy week but I’ve been able to stick to the daily diet plan!   Your emails have been helpful, thanks.   Feeling great, energetic & surprised that I do not feel hungry during the day, wow.

Veggies for snacks keeps things light, & feel fresh and alert. Usually like breads etc. but do not miss them or the drag on the body. Vicki is also participating in the diet and exercising and feeling great as well (light and energetic).

Dave Walsh, Georgetown, Ontario

I feel better now then when I was in my twenties and my body is in way better shape as well.

I first contacted Nancy In January 2003.  i just came back from a trip and was feeling very tired when I should have been feeling rejuvenated.  I saw an article in the local paper, something to the effect of "are you tired of being constipated". Which has been a problem for me over many years. Doctors always just told me to take laxatives, quick fixes.

I lost 4 lbs in 7 days on the program

I lost 4 lbs in 7 days on the program - I think my sugars are hard to get rid of! However, I feel great and when I eat unnatural sugar, I get really upset. I would say my body is now telling me something! Big time!

Your info was very useful – but there could be a wider range of warm stews for this time of year.
Yes, I would do the program again would definitely recommend it to others.

Ruth Kutinard, Peterborough

I’ve lost over 6 lbs in a week

I got great results, better than the first time I did it. My weight loss was quicker – i've lost over 6 lbs in a week, and plan to continue the cleanse, since it was so successful. Maybe I can lose 10 lbs on this cleanse! 

I feel good and I think my skin looks better too! I found the recipes really helped me to change things up, because I am usually guilty of eating the same thing all the time. I don't miss the sugar and can hopefully make these habits permanent. I would definitely do this program again. It always pulls me back onto the right path.

Lizanne Gray, Georgetown, Ontario

What I noticed during and after the program is not only that I’ve lost weight, but my muscle pain and arthritis have reduced so much! I don’t crave processed or sugary food like I used to. I have so much more respect now for who I am and how Ifuel my mind and body.

I am also a member of the Women’s Health Academy! At 73 years old, I’m a student for life! I figure I have another 30 years to go, so why not make the best of it?! Happy and Super Grateful for this beautiful life.

You are a true leader in nutrition!  When I first met you I knew you were a person who walked the talk.  You radiate health and divine beauty.  I read intently when you  give expert advice on your blog and newsletters . I know that you always search for the highest level of quality when it comes to recommending optimal products ,  supplements or simple health tips.  Why would I go anywhere else when I know that you have already done the research?

For a long time now, I have been struggling with losing weight after giving birth to my 4 children.  Last August, I developed a skin rash all over my body that kept coming back every month or so.  I saw an allergy specialist/immunologist together with a dermatologist and was given Prednisone each time I would break out.  They said it was related to stress.

The bad habits were gone!

In my private consultations with Nancy I was reminded of a lot of basics that over time I had been neglecting. Some “special treats” (as my 3 year old nephew calls them) had become bad habits. I learned from Nancy to identify again what to eat, when, and how to be aware of making food choices. It only took about 2 months to feel great again.

You are a fountain of knowledge and yet have the ability to share it with simplicity and ease.

Great workshop!!!! I am SO MOTIVATED TO SUCCEED! I love Your style. You are a fountain of knowledge and yet have the ability to share it with simplicity and ease.It feels like you use the KISS Method (Keep It Simple and just Sigh!) and give permission for clients to do it their way without a lot of pressure. So different from past experiences I have had with other programs. Your program offers so many alternatives that it can fit anyone's lifestyle. It is my intention to juice for as long (up to 7 days) as it works for me and then go to Plan B.I have done 5 day juice cleanses many times so know that after Day 3 it's easy peesy lemon squeezy!Thank you for continuing to share your light with others.

You truly do lose the cravings!

Doing the 7 day sugar free diet,  I didn't feel deprived or starved. You truly do lose the cravings, it's amazing.  I feel great.  I plan to continue with the eating plan I would recommended to anyone to do the cleanse. I lost about 4 pounds in 7 days I  feel so much better . I'm not as irritable as I was, always wanting to eat something and then feeling bad for having over eaten and eaten poorly.  I was really concerned about this past weekend because of Halloween.  Normally having access to all those little chocolate bars would be a real problem for me.  I haven't had any and more importantly I haven't had the desire to eat them.
