Praise from people who used the site to recover.

“I feel absolutely AMAZING!!! I made it! I made it through it all. I have never been so thankful in my life. Thank you so much. It changed my life and has helped put myself on a road to a happier Brandi. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!”

Brandi Green

“The emails are very helpful. I especially liked learning about how nutritional deficiencies can cause/mimic depression. What an amazing breakthrough.”


“It’s amazing how much of a difference is making to everything, general well being, state of calm, focus, my body feels light and more. Kinda feel a bit stupid for not figuring this out myself. Had dreams that I can remember for the first time in a long long time both nights. I also used to feel very suicidal for 30 mins every morning after waking up, which would pass quickly and was only ever right after waking up so I got used to it. But feel completely normal now!”

Ollie Smith

“You helped me up. And I thank you for that. I was down for months devastated and just couldn’t get up. You helped me get through… Thank you.”
