From an early age I have had digestive issues, experiencing abnormal burping and gas. My digestive system seems to be "the weaker link" in my overall health. In February, 2008, I had a colonoscopy during which a sessile (flat) polyp was found. This polyp was biopsied and, even though there was no malignancy, the gastroenterologist insisted that I have it removed along with a foot of my colon since my mother had died of colon cancer. He explained that he was going to treat this as if it had been malignant. Three years later during a very stressful time, I began having difficulty digesting raw foods and experiencing extreme gas (bloating). I had become hypersensitive to raw foods, especially tomatoes, lettuce, and nuts, and also to alcohol. Having always been an avid salad eater, eliminating raw foods was a real problem for me. I like raw foods and have long believed they are essential to good health. Since working with John (by long distance) for three months, I have made some diet and lifestyle adjustments which have made a huge difference for me. I cancelled my plan for a followup colonoscopy and am now enjoying raw food again.

What John Van Dorp has done for me: 1. Allviated my sciatica pain so I can walk without pain. 2. Helped me control numbness in my feet which is caused by diabetes. 3. Worked on my back to break up congestion in my lungs eliminating a bronchial cough. I have experienced deep relaxation and pain relief through John’s skill with acupressure points. Through John’s classes I am learning ways to support my immune system through diet, relaxation, and exercise. Gradually I am including new foods in my diet which is opening me to a whole new way of thinking and taking care of myself. Most of all I am learning what it means to “listen” to my body and to manage it in a healthy way. John is passionate about making a difference in people’s lives by helping them feel better. I feel a spiritual energy permeating his work; he is a master of his profession. I now have a program which includes nutritional support and stress management for my own Complete Body Balance.

John is a guy who walks his talk. For the past seven years I have experienced him as a support and inspiration for healthy living. After coming through some difficult years with my health, talking with him about my concerns has been great for me, plus attending his ‘optimum health’ classes. His knowledge on the subject of health is inspiring. He has taught me about detoxing and fasting, also coached me through it, He has a wealth of information which he puts into down-to-earth practical tips.
While he teaches that good nutrition is the key to health, he also insists on a balance of exercise and relaxation. I have been inspired to the point that my own friends are benefiting from the information. Gradually I am gaining a new appreciation for taking charge of my health and realizing that I alone am responsible for it.
