Testimonials From Deanna's Clients
Before I started the WOW
Weight loss program, I thought that I knew all there is to know about healthy
eating and the dangers of not. How wrong I was. I have learned so much about
healthy food choices and the options that are out there and in the process I
lost 20 lbs. I feel better, I look better and I have more confidence. I like
the way the program is geared individually. At first it was work to try and
follow the daily exchange counter but it got easier to follow as the weeks went
on that you don't even have to think about it, it just flows. You still have to
think about your healthy food choices but the education I received while on the
program has made it much easier. I enjoy food alot more and I'm staying
satisfied. Knowing about lean proteins and when to eat them, to me, made the
Thank you Deanna for your guidance and expertise and thank you WOW for coming up with a great program that to me was a "life changer"

16 year old acne sufferer
I am a sixteen-year-old girl who has
struggled with serious acne since I was in grade 6. I have tried every acne
medication on the shelves in the pharmacies. I have found that most of them do
not work. The ones that do, work only in the beginning and then my skin would
become accustomed to the cleanser. I have also even gone to the doctor to get
prescriptions, which do not work as well.
Then this is when I went and saw Deanna. Deanna got me to do a cleanse of my body removing the toxins to start out fresh. I was put on some natural herbs and minerals to give my body the right amount of vitamins, which it needed. After the cleanse we began to do an elimination diet to see if my skin reacted worse to certain things I ate. When doing the elimination diet we found that I had an allergy, which caused my skin to flare up with serious acne.
Now I take my minerals and herbs daily and I have a diet which does not include any of the foods I am sensitive to and my serious acne is now gone. Without Deanna’s knowledge I would still be trying the acne cleansers at the pharmacy and would not be getting anywhere. I would like to thank Deanna so much for all that she has done for me to get me acne free.
Bone density and fibromyalgia issues sufferer
A few years ago, I filled out a detailed questionnaire that asked all sorts of questions about my health, eating habits, and of course, my aches and pains (many as they were). After Deanna analyzed the responses, she knew - and tried to convince me - that my gut was in dire need of help. To make a very long story short, my advice to anyone who has a health need is to take seriously the counsel of a holistic nutritionist.
Deanna's painstaking research about my bone density and fibromyalgia issues have led me to a consistent yet convenient regimen that has allowed me to stop taking ibuprofen on a regular basis, greatly diminish cold sore outbreaks and cure a spastic colon. Any one of these alone could be considered a monumental achievement after suffering with these for decades. I can't undo 50+ years of bad eating habits in 2 years, but I've "come a long way, baby". My next goal is to begin reversing my bone density loss now that my body is better able to absorb nutrients. And it's not all about vitamins and supplements. Deanna has shown me how to eat healthier - foods that are better suited to the specific needs of my body - foods that help me rather than put an extra burden on my system.
It took me a long time to get here, and I'm now looking forward to a healthier time with my new grandchildren.

Re: Wellness Saturdays
Just a quick note to let you know that the Wellness workshop on Saturday, was amazing.
As mentioned before, I have never done yoga and wasn't that eager to try it. I am so glad I went on Saturday. I loved the yoga. It is hard to describe what I felt - I was relaxed yet felt like I had a work out. I was in a totally different state of mind then when I came. Thank-you! I definitely want to continue with the yoga.
The lunch was great. Very tasty and yet good for us!!!!! Yummy!!!!!
Dee, your talk was very informative. Your topic is one that I can relate to. Took a lot of good information away and am implementing several changes.
I have told many people about the day and all have asked "if they can come to the next one".
Great day - hope they will continue.
