|"I was diagnosed with diabetic
neuropathy and had been very weak and had lost 80
pounds. I was barely able to walk and my legs were
very sore with poor circulation. I couldn't lie
on my left side because of the pain and pins and
needles. The doctor said it was from the diabetes
and nerve damage. Before I left the Resort, I was
able to sleep on both sides with no problem. I could
walk much further and was much stronger. I couldn't
believe it myself, and my husband and friends were
shocked at the change in me. I came to the Resort
a wreck, but Phil brought the feeling of aliveness
back into my body. When I went home, I felt alive
|"If you're willing to make
a lifestyle change, then this is an easy program!
I felt that the Resort came up with the best formula
for nutrition and lifestyle change. It really taught
me a lot. I lost weight and felt much better. I
thoroughly appreciate the people at the Resort and
their dedication. The food program is the best I’ve
ever experienced. Phil Brewer's lectures were very
enjoyable. The program is simple yet powerful. And
you don't need to spend a lot of money to feel better.
The difference in how I felt is tremendous!"
Osoyoos, British Columbia
|"I was at the Resort with
my wife a few years ago. Our investment in ourselves
was three weeks there. The most important things
to us were the nutrition education (the food was
delicious and they elegantly served meals) and the
exercise education (which helped us get in better
shape and establish a new habit in our lifestyle).
The information learned during evening sessions
(lectures about health matters) were very helpful!!
After our stay at the Resort, I can say that we've
pretty firmly established healthy eating habits!
Drayton Valley, Alberta
|"I was very impressed with
the cleanliness. It really is a 5-star hotel. I’m
enjoying better eating habits; I got back on track
– because I want to get back to better health.
I am using the breathing techniques. It’s
a wonderful concept, and you definitely get your
money’s worth. I’ve sent Resort brochures
to friends and family."

| LEARNING TO THRIVE AT
It might have been a tiny ad,
Or perhaps a hurt so bad-
How about a honeymoon?
Or a sense of impending doom?
Some of us came and brought a friend
Others alone, but for a different end.
Sex, age and weight it mattered naught
For each inside, a dream we brought.

my mind. Between the moment I stepped in the door
and the time I returned to my real life and all
its responsibilities, I switched my perspective

|"I had been deliberating
what to give my son for his birthday for a long
time. But it came to me in a visit to the Alive
Health Resort. So many people I know would greatly
benefit from two weeks of "Alive" living.
I was invited to Alive’s open house, and left
excited and impressed about the programs that it
offers. The programs are a good balance between
pampering and lifestyle coaching. I listened with
interest and appreciation to three half-hour presentations,
after a scrumptious and nutritious lunch buffet.
The facilitators and coaches are genuinely refreshing
personalities, and combined their message with humor,
love, knowledge and common sense. I believe that
Alive offers a special opportunity to heal and grow
and celebrate us. "
|“I just wanted to say thank
you for the lovely time I had . Such a lovely setting
and great start to the day, and the weekend. Please
tell Vic that his presentation has had an impact.
Maybe its a case of the right words at the right
time. Ever since Friday morning I have been examining
my life and my place in the world. I feel ready
for some changes, some growth and responsibility.
As I said, very inspiring. Thank you Vic. Thank
you again "

|“I’ve been rubbed
and pressed and prodded and poked
I’ve been twisted and turned and trued like
I’ve been oiled and doctored and laughed and
I’ve walked and talked till I almost died
Hot rocks on my back melting tension away
Steamed away stress almost every day
And sanded and fined and painted and prepped
Hot mud on my body and wrapped like a gift
I’ve been lectured and schooled by some excellent
About eight doctors that will bring us aloft
Another one tests us; our colours be true
They tell me I am Orange, Green, Gold and Blue
Health Quotient and Values, emotions galore
Spirit and soul and body and more
Leave no stone unturned we’ve got have heart
With boundaries and balance in every part
Between all this learning we’re fed healthy
Drinking clean water and in a good mood
Its time to go with knowledge in hand
I feel like a child in an untamed land
Challenge is great but resolution is strong
Leaving nothing to “Chance”(our dog)
“we can’t go wrong”
While roaming the world I search for health
With peace and joy will by my wealth."

my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it! I am a doctor
of biomedical sciences, with a Master's in Public
Health. I have been to the Resort at least four
times. I’ve traveled a lot, been on cruises,
etc., and have not experienced anything as relaxing
as this Resort. I have seen, firsthand, people with
major heart problems achieve amazing improvements
at this Resort."

been there several times! And we think it’s
wonderful! My husband really enjoyed the healthy
food. The walks, the cooking and the fellowship
were wonderful. We felt much better when we left.
We were already into a healthy lifestyle before,
but this was a life-changing experience! We think
about our time at the Resort every day."

and I enjoyed it thoroughly! I talk all the time
about the Resort. I had some health concerns; I
was overweight and have arthritis. But I felt much
better when I got back home after my stay. I lost
weight! Phil gave me valuable tips on how to deal
with arthritis. The food was fantastic. I loved
Vernon, British Columbia
|"I really liked the welcome
I received; the hospitality and nurturing were unparalleled.
The hospitality was genuine and all-encompassing.
I learned how to be more honest about my pain and
how to apply new principles to my lifestyle. I ‘re-learned’
and remembered good habits. It was just what I needed
– I expected it to be a certain way, but it
totally surpassed those expectations. The food was
exceptional. I bought the cookbook and use it regularly.
It was a wonderful and happy experience. I can’t
wait to go back. I invested in me and my health,
and I made new friends. Make the commitment to yourself
and your health!"
Forest Grove. British Columbia
|"We spent five days at your
health spa and the results are fabulous!
We also purchased your cookbook. We are enjoying
the healthy diet and are learning to use all the
recipes. We have more energy, better skin tone,
and we are losing weight! Linda suffered from hiatal
hernia for many years and now has no reflux problems
at all! We know we are now enjoying so many health
benefits! My wife Linda was at the point of losing
her mobility, but thanks to Phil Brewer, she has
had amazing improvement. She has lost most of the
pain and her mobility is coming back.
We received so much valuable information. It is
incredible and we thank you all for your help! We
enjoy knowing we will benefit from Alive Health
Resort & Spa's advice for a lifetime with better
We enjoyed the Resort and our newfound friends!"

I learned more about health and wellness in 12 days
than I have in my whole life. Within seven days
of being at the Resort, I had explored my own stress,
and found a sense of self I had somehow lost. I
am grateful to everyone at the Alive Health Resort
for showing me the way to a healthier life.... "

an awesome two-day getaway. I truly felt blessed
by the experience. "
Enderby, British Columbia
|"My life was upside down,
with issues of aging parents, so I went to the Alive
Health Resort. Eileen and Phil provided an intensive
health program of natural food and walks in the
mountains every day. I am keeping with the plan
I was given. It does work. I just came back from
London and Paris – places I never thought
I would travel to again because of poor health.
Thanks for everything!"

The experience was beyond our expectation! The staff
was un-be-lie-va-ble! Loved the hikes... and both
Nadeen and I are motivating one another to go every
day. We've changed our diet, and it feels good!
The bonding with all the guests was amazing - we
went to a BBQ at one of the guest’s house
after our stay. We all shared our addresses and
phone numbers. We had a fabulous time! We'll definitely
be back in a couple of years."
