Health coaching helped me lose weight!

I have been overweight for over 6 years, I was sleeping all the time and waking up tired.  My body was swelling and my hair was falling out.  My life was falling apart and my low energy dept me from doing things with my family.  My mom recommended that I come to Cruz Life Center for Health Coaching with Lesia.  After 4 weeks, I lost 20 pounds and my life has changed drastically, I have more energy than ever before.  I recommend Cruz Life Center to everyone I meet.                               …Tina, Green Mountain, NC

Health coaching helped regulate my blood sugar!
I orginally came into the office because my doctor discovered that my blood sugar was 300 (triple from one year ago).  If was then that I decided I needed to make a change, I started Health Coaching with Lesia.   She proposed a diet plan, supplement plan and laser therapy.  4 weeks later, I have lost 10 pounds and my blood sugar has dropped to normal levels, I feel great!  Thank you Cruz Life Center, you saved my life.                                            …Don, Little Switzerland, NC

Seth JohnsonHealth coaching worked for me!

I have known Dr. Cruz and Lesia for over 10 years and I am very pleased with the service I received at Cruz Life Center. I noticed that I was having gum recession and went in for their professional opinion. I went through laser treatments and an extensive diet change and now I am pleased to say my gums are healing up and I feel awesome. My sleep has improved and my energy is up!   …Seth Johnson

Chocolate helped me lose over 30 pounds!
Initially, I came into the office because of an aching back from moving boxes. Dr. Cruz, Lesia Cruz, Debra, and all the staff constantly keep up with new, changing advances in all sorts of actual health care.  These folks care about our health!  Ordinary western medical personnel care only about your illness.  We see ads on TV all the time about ‘health insurance’ — but the drug companies want to increase their billions by exploiting our illnesses — real or imagined.  Whatever is bothering you, just take a pill.  All the side effects of drugs are often worse than the original problem.
Cruz Life Center cares about our health, lives, and quality of life.  They are learning every day, and sharing their wealth of knowledge, freely and gladly.  Cruz Life Center helps us manage our total body care.  From traditional chiropractic adjustments, to laser treatments, to the best quality of vitamins and supplements.
Dr. Cruz and each person there never make you feel bad about yourself, never criticize for failures or backsliding.  There is always an attitude of caring, encouragement, and positivity from everyone.
 A few months ago, Lesia and Debra suggested that I would benefit from the ‘raw chocolate’.  All my life, weight has been a struggle.  And you never met anyone more of a ‘chocolate-holic’ !!  If it was chocolate, it was mine!  Yet, the more chocolate milk I drank and the more chocolate candy-bars I ate, the more I craved.  My weight ballooned.  I was feeling poorly a lot of the time, carrying around way more poundage than my bones could handle.  My knees ached so bad, it was getting harder and harder even to go up and down stairs.  In the mornings I’d wake up aching all over.
 So, when they suggested this “Wilderness Family Naturals Organic Chocolate Syrup, I was totally skeptical.  How could chocolate help, when chocolate had been my lifelong downfall?!: Lesia explained that this is pure, raw cacao and agave (a natural desert plant).  It does not contain any preservatives, gums or artificial ingredients.  The Naturals Chocolate Syrup contains nutrients such as vitamin C, fiber and iron, and minerals including magnesium, potassium, and zinc..  Raw Cacao contains more antioxidant flavonoids than green tea and blueberries.  I was still quite skeptical but, having faith in Lesia, decided to go ahead and give it a try.
Well !!  That was in December.  There was such an immediate, radical change, I could hardly believe it.  Within days, my body stopped hurting so bad, and I lost a few pounds.  Anytime that old chocolate craving reared its ugly head, I’d just have a spoonful of two of the Organic Raw Chocolate Syrup.
Now, the Holidays kind of intervened, and between getting goodies from folks, and doing baking myself, I slipped back into the old bad habits.  But, hey, at Christmas-time, who can resist all those yummy cookies everyone gives you, or a few slices of fruitcake, or that extra glass of eggnog?
Well, by January, my weight had crawled upwards again.  And the same old aches and pains came creeping back.  So, I sat down and thought this situation over.  Hmmmm.  If I felt good before, why throw it all away for a few pieces of fudge and some mugs of hot chocolate?
Started eating the Raw Chocolate Syrup again.  Which stopped the awful cravings.  Was able then to eat more sensibly — laying off my favorite — chocolate milk, and using Stevia instead of sugar.  It’s now April 9th. My body is feeling energized, stronger, few (if any) aches and pains — and in three months, I’ve dropped over 30 pounds!
There is NO feeling of being deprived.  This chocolate is so rich, it tastes almost decadent.  In the morning, a spoonful of the Organic Raw Chocolate Syrup makes the coffee delicious.  Starts the day off right, and keeps the ’munchies’ away.
I know, now, that I’ll never go back to the bad old ways.   So, that’s the tale of a former “chocolate-holic”. I don’t know if this all makes sense, but it works!     ….Susan, Burnsville, NC


“Breaking new ground” at 81
“After having an E.I.S. scan and following a prescribed diet and exercise program included in my Health Counseling, I have lost 17 lbs. in 7 weeks. I am now just 2 lbs. short of my goal. A reflux problem that had caused hoarseness is gone. I no longer need diabetes or blood pressure medication. I can walk a measured mile in less than 18 minutes.”     …Don Cooper

“New way of eating!
“I am into this new way of eating and I can honestly say I feel so much better! I don’t have the aches and pains in my joints and I have so much more energy! I look forward to learning more about eating healthy and trying recipes and seeing and feeling the positive results.”                  …Susie Shelton

“Balancing my PH!”
“I experienced a dramatic increase in my energy and the cellulite seemed to just melt away. I lost 7 pounds in the first four weeks with nutritional counseling with Lesia. The E.I.S. (Electro Interstitial Scan) helped me to identify certain food allergies that were causing me fluid retention and very high pH levels. Now my pH is perfect!”                                                   …Laura Hornecker

“Fat Flush”
“I did the fat flush program two years in a row. The first year I lost over 20 pounds and kept it off over a year now. The second time was just to get me started off on the right foot for the new year and I lost an additional 10 pounds. I have more energy and look forward to turning 50 this year with a better attitude toward living a long healthy life. Bottom line is “Get Fit!!!! You’ll be glad you did.”          …Debora Buchanan

“Health Coaching helped me lower my cholestrol!
“After battling with my weight for more than 15 years, I am finally successfully losing weight. Before coming for Health Coaching, I had tried every fad diet and over-the-counter weight loss pill, and nothing seemed to work or last a long period of time.

When I started coming for Health Coaching, I was on three different medications for my blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. I have now lost 15 pounds and am off all my medications–cholesterol medication, diabetes medication, and blood pressure medication!

The fat flush has made such an impact on my life. I did not realize before how bad unhealthy food makes you feel. With Lesia’s help, I have learned how to eat and cook foods that are healthy for me and my family.

The best part about the Fat Flush was knowing someone was helping and they had the confidence in me–even when I lacked it. I have more confidence in myself and look and feel great! I know that with her help, I will continue to have a better and more productive lifestyle!”   …Donna Thomas
