"Most of my life I had battled the frequently occurring common cold, tissue boxes and cold remedies as my constant companions.  After my time with Ilana, I have not been sick at all, and I have finally shed those last ten pounds, as well as a sluggishness that seemed to be creeping in. I have been truly healthy, much more energetic, and more fulfilled than I was before."
