I feel good about my body and my being

“For the first time that I can remember, I am not obsessed with food and I feel good about my body and my being. It is a gift and a treasure that I appreciate every day.”

M.D.  //  Massachusetts 

The professional and qualified staff initiated a new way of life

"After years of being stuck, the professional and qualified staff initiated a new way of life. A happier life. I was a chronic dieter for 40 years, now I don't diet and I feel liberated and free. It's so nice to like myself after years of self-loathing. I highly recommend a stay, because you deserve it. It's an investment that is well worth the time and money. Nothing better than to get away from the hustle of life to get in touch with nature and self."

“After my fourth week here, I was off my short-acting insulin and my oral medication. A week after I left, I was off my long-acting medication. No hypertension medication. Quite frankly, I’m not on any medication except an occasional aspirin. I like the way I look, and I like Marie Danis. Quite probably for the first time in my life.”
