Guest Reviews & Testimonials
"One of my best wellness experiences ever!"
I’ve visited many spas, health resorts and wellness retreats and I can honestly say that VeraVia ranks among the top 1%.
The staff is knowledgeable, accessible, kind and very caring. The program is well thought out encompassing all aspects of well-being. The food is outstanding, the classes are terrific, the lectures are very informative.
Everything about VeraVia is personal and customized. Whether you are looking to start on the path to a healthier life or you wish to optimize your wellness, this is definitely a place to check out!- Sallie Fraenkel, Past COO of SpaFinder, Inc., Past Executive VP of Global Spa & Wellness Summit
Back in January, I came to the realization that whatever it was I thought I was doing to lose weight and get in shape was falling far short of even the lowest expectations. Not only that, I was overcome with a sense of poor and declining health. I had battled weight and excess behavioral issues, back pain, low energy and horrible sleep for decades.
As the CEO/owner of a technology firm, I have a very busy travel schedule which has me on the road almost every week. I knew I needed an immediate reset, but with the right education so that I could leave with a plan that would lead to long term results that had been so elusive for me. What I realized was that I was ready and I knew I needed to make some immediate changes.
Upon arriving at VeraVia I knew I made the right decision. Small boutique setting, small group of guests, 5 star accommodations, excellent ratio of staff to guest, super positive environment, all staff are experts in their fields, incredibly passionate, empathic, encouraging, great communicators and educators!
What had the biggest impact was that VeraVia covered the full spectrum of wellness, nutrition, fitness, medical, behavioral and, in a sense, spiritual for me. The meals and the setting are extraordinary.
It has been 90 days now and I just returned from a follow-up visit and the results have been life changing for me. I have seen a dramatic improvement in my blood work, my weight continues to decline (lightest I have been in 15 years), I feel great, healthy, thin, I have more energy with greater focus in all areas of my life. I have clarity and renewed drive in my business and I am sleeping normally for the first time in over a decade.
I would recommend this to anyone that is serious about making meaningful, lasting changes and are ready to make a commitment to their health and well-being.- Joe M., Miami, FL
I went to VeraVia because I was out of ideas. Every doctor I went to told me I needed to lose weight.
Despite having a successful career and trying every diet known, I just could not do it. I decided it was time to bring in the experts. I signed up for 5 weeks.
This is what I was able to accomplish:
1. Lost 15 pounds at VeraVia and have lost another 11 pounds since I have gotten back. It turns out my weight problem were all related to a hormone issue. Once this was addressed, the weight just keeps dropping.
2. Blood sugars went from 6.6 to 5.8 at VeraVia and are now down to 5.5. Dr. Derek told me he could teach me how to get rid of diabetes. He was right.
3. I cut my time to walk a mile by nearly 9 minutes per mile. Nathan and Joana were constant positive supporters. I also learned that exercise is more than doing one thing constantly – it works better if you change things up.
4. I picked up a new hobby I can’t wait to do more of. Thanks Steve for the awesome tennis lessons.
5. I finally learned how to eat food that was right for me. Also, I came home with recipes that are easy to make with little time.
Thanks Cat – your attention to details and knowledge were unreal.
6. I finally learned to do yoga and mediate. Holly’s patience with my very active mind was fantastic.
7. I finally understand why none of the diets I tried would have ever worked for me.
I now have the tools and confidence I need to remain successful.
VeraVia not only changed my life expectancy but also my energy levels, my pain, my happiness and my ability to handle constant stress. I only wish I had come here sooner.- S.B, Hilton Head, South Carolina
