Thank you so much for an amazing 2 weeks at the Detox Oasis, Fit Body Retreat at Elk Ridge Ranch. My friend and I are so impressed by the changes in our bodies and how good we feel after just 2 weeks. In every area, from our accommodations, to getting us through the cleanse program and so much more, everything was more than we had hoped for - not to mention the incredible gourmet meals in week two. Yummy!

If you are thinking about improving your health, this is the place to come. It's not easy. It's hard work, but like anything, you get out what you put in.

Dave, thanks for pushing us in the gym; you have a gift of getting the most out of people in training. You helped us push ourselve to our limit but in a safe manner. Thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge from training tips, recipes and practical ways to succeed once we get home.

You're a gracious host. You go above and beyond to serve your guests. Thanks. We will recommend you to all of our friends and family. We'll be back again some day.

After going through two extremely stressful years emotionally, I was searching for a way to let go of all the toxins I had allowed to accumulate in my body, physically, emotionally and even spiritually. When I searched the internet, I found many places that offered "this total body cleanse" or "that stress reducing" service. But not one of these other places responded to my initial request for information with such a swift and personal reply from the program director.

Dave continued this personal approach throughout the entire detox. As a result, I was not only able to meet all of my personal goals for the week, I exceeded them! In fact, this experience changed not only my life but my life-style. It managed to do more for me physically than any diet or exercise program I've ever tried (and believe me, I've tried them all!)

Now that I'm back home, I'm more motivated than ever to maintain the great strides I made at your program. There were 5 of us that came together to do the cleanse. Although all 5 of us came for very different reasons, we were able to find enough common ground to support and encourage each other through the rough spots and celebrate our leaner bodies at the end of the week.

I went home a different person, and it truly was a "jumpstart" to a better life. I'm off of caffeine, sugar, refined flour, and artificial sweeteners. I've lost a total of 20 pounds in 3 weeks and am still losing. I'm working out with a personal trainer and am back in the gym 6 days a week. I feel the best I've felt since I was a kid! I owe it all to an incredible week's stay doing a detox at your facility.

Dave, it has been a while since we last communicated. I wanted to wish you and your family the very best for 2009! I have been diligent in sticking with my new diet and exercise program and have actually lost more weight since returning from your "boot camp"! I can't thank you enough for your guidance and inspiration - it has changed my life and I enter into this new year a changed woman!

Keep in touch - we will definitely be back with new recruits - I have passed your website along to many of my college colleagues who can't believe the change that your program has had on me. I actually had someone last week not recognize me due to the weight loss and healthy living!

Fit Body Retreat at Elk Ridge Ranch is the perfect place to jumpstart your weight loss goal! In addition, you get all the added benefits of a total body detox. I've read many books on dieting and weight loss and it always boils down to one fundamental fact: I am taking in more calories than my body requires. The most important question was: Why?? And what could I do to reverse it?

Generally we feed ourselves by letting our emotional state determine when we are hungry instead of listening to our bodies. I was overeating (typically bad foods) because of stress, nervousness, and even boredom. Also when I ate, I did so quickly, not adequately chewing and tasting the food. I was 85 pounds overweight.

For me personally, my emotional hunger drive was very powerful. I would surrender to this "false hunger" and eat 5 doughnuts, or a huge bowl of sweet cereal, or a large box of beef fried rice.... and then go lay down and relax in front of the television. Logically I knew what was happening and what the results would be even before eating, but I could not overcome the "hunger beast." This was a downward spiraling situation as it deeply affected my self esteem and self confidence... not to mention the terrible effect to my invaluable health.

At Fit Body Retreat at Elk Ridge Ranch I juice fasted and detoxed for seven days... and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. Each day I drank wheatgrass shots and one glass of fresh vegetable juice. Also as part of the program I had daily colonics and a liver flush. The ranch is located in the Midwest countryside of rolling hills, forest and farmland. There are beautiful trails and roads to walk and enjoy the fresh air and wildlife, or you can choose to workout in their excellent gym facility, complete with all work out equipment and an oxygen concentrator that makes working out easier. There are also optional yoga and meditation classes, however, I choose to meditate during my morning walks, my afternoons by the large fish-filled pond, and star gazing at night.

The Midwest

At Fit Body Retreat at Elk Ridge Ranch, I finally slew the hunger beast. I now know that I can go seven days without solid food if I choose to do so. I left your program 15 pounds lighter, feeling good and glowing with confidence that I am in control of my hunger. Now it's my true body hunger that I listen to and not my emotional state hunger. I now taste my food better, chew it slower, get full and satisfied quicker and am not attracted so much to the bad foods. This is a great recipe for lifelong weight loss/management by any expert's measure.

I did a lot of research before coming to your facility, and I believe the value to be many times the program price. This is the first time in my life I've seven days to take care of myself (me time). I highly recommend your program, not only for the full body detox and no non-sense approach, but for showing me that I have the ability to conquer the hunger beast. Thanks for everything!
