Before I did the 21 day group detox with Melissa, I was a bit of a detox skeptic, and also pretty scared I wouldn’t last a day in detox. I had some pretty bad food habits I just couldn’t seem to shake (sugar cravings, night snacking) so gave it a try. The detox totally did the trick. I broke existing patterns and came out of it with new much healthier habits I am now maintaining. My terribly painful feet got much better, and I lost weight. Melissa is a really great guide. She has a wonderful way about her, is great at sharing the knowledge she’s developed, and did a beautiful job of creating a supportive community within our group. Thanks!
Thank You Melissa for your intentional care and concern for all of us participants in the January group of your Health Kickstart and Detox Program. Not only did you make the material and steps easy to follow, you provided WAY more support and information than I could have ever expected.
I have done a variety of health cleanse programs the last several years but your 21-day Detox program is legitimately and by far the most comprehensive and most realistic cleanse I have ever completed.
Your guidance and availability as I figured things out the first week were above and beyond! Having the APP to remind me when to take supplements as well as tracking water intake, exercise and sleep was a bonus that I quickly learned to rely on to keep me on track.
I highly recommend this Health Kickstart and Detox program to people who are serious and committed to taking care of their nutritional health and who feel like they need a nutritional reset.
Furthermore, I highly recommend Melissa to be your coach/practitioner as you navigate the program. She is intentional, articulate, has a wealth of knowledge, and is truly invested in helping her clients attain their health goals.
1 What was the biggest (health) challenge for you before working with me?
I had worked with a health coach in her group program for 6 months prior, and due to perimenopause, I was discouraged to find couldn’t keep the weight fully off. I also wasn’t motivated to increase my movement, and I didn’t feel good in my body at about 20 pounds over my goal weight, with most of it hanging out in my mid-section. I didn’t implement some of the strategies my coach was suggesting because I couldn’t wrap my head around stopping the keto way of eating I had adopted in the past 3 years that had initially worked so well until my body changed.
2. What were some of the strategies in Your Guided Health Journey’s Detox that made the biggest difference?The explanations of WHY my body was doing some of the things it was doing and the suggested way to specifically detox over three weeks initially, with a quarterly detox “tune up” week, broke through the “clouds” for me, and I was so enthusiastic about the potential results I did the 3-week detox straight away in December, right before the holidays!
3. What have been the results so far? I released about half the weight I desired to drop in just 4 weeks and felt so much better in my body that I started to create a workout space in my lower level for HIIT first thing in the mornings. One of my knees, which sometimes complains going down stairs, stopped complaining. So, I’m walking and moving more. Post detox, I continued with liquid smoothies that are super nutritious, which helps me eat way less than I was thinking my body needed beforehand throughout the day. And, my husband is more interested in having intimacy with me, which is extremely generative in many areas of my life, including business and money. In fact, my ability to manifest made a quantum leap while I was detoxing, and I energetically booted clients who were no longer a fit out of my ongoing program to make room for ones who are a fit. I embraced plant-based proteins for most lunches and leave the animal proteins for dinners, which are fun to cook together with my husband. I am eating according to my metabolic and blood types, which feels so much more aligned. Oh, and my husband has started replacing one of his meals now with shakes/smoothies as well, so he can shed some pounds, too!
4. What are some of your biggest insights, inner shifts and realizations? I realized that having a way of eating that honors your body is extremely important, especially as we age. Melissa’s method does just that and is an easy-to-live approach. I feel much less stressed about meal planning and prepping than before, am eating more fruits and veggies, and drinking the appropriate amount to stay hydrated. My whole system feels harmonized and ready to take on the world!
5. What’s up for you next? How will your experience impact your results in the future? I will continue with the smoothies for breakfast, because I like how easy, fast and delish they are as well as how I feel consuming them. I look forward to my quarterly detox “tune up” week and continuing that for the foreseeable future, as well as hearing my lab results for any additional tweaks I may need to make so I naturally and completely heal myself back to a healthy, harmonized physical system. I know this will continue to increase my ability to manifest whatever I desire. Thank you, Melissa, for being my guide on this wonderful journey!
Melissa Deally is a top notch expert in her field of health. As a client, I was highly impressed with her support and accountability in coaching. Melissa customizes a health journey for you, and is driven to make sure there are support tools in place no matter what you may need.
Melissa is amazing! I have been blown away by Melissa’s extensive knowledge as well as her patience and encouragement. I was super hesitant to do the detox because I have had so many bad experiences in the past, but it was literally one of the best experiences I have ever had. I have been struggling to lose weight for quite some time because of hormonal and other issues. I did the detox and felt GREAT – I was full of energy, was never hungry, had fewer headaches, AND I lost 13 pounds! Now that I have been off of it and have gone back to eating some of the junk I ate before, I can tell better than ever what my body just doesn’t like. And I’m adjusting accordingly! Even better, I managed to keep the weight off through the holidays by eating healthy food that I truly enjoy – and I even met my pre-Christmas goal weight! WOO HOO!!! Thank you, Melissa, for getting me on track healthwise!!!
As an Arbonne Consultant, I have been focused on being my healthiest self, eating clean, using toxin free products for more than five years. Recently, I had some health issues come up that I needed to address – a frozen shoulder, unexplained weight gain and sleep issues. I decided to work with Melissa Deally, run some labs and do her functional medicine detox. I’m so happy to say that working with Melissa has completely healed my frozen shoulder, in just 2 months, that I had been struggling with for a year! I can now fully lift my arm again and have joined a Dragon Boat team! I also enjoyed losing some weight, and am experiencing improved sleep. Melissa provided me with a personal wellness protocol to help re-balance my hormones, based on my lab results, and I’m feeling awesome, even as I can feel my body continuing to heal! I’m so glad I listened to my body and decided to work with Melissa to regain my health when I did!
Thank you Melissa!
I recently went through the 4 week Health Kickstart + Detox program with Melissa and highly recommend her program and services! To supplement, she provided excellent “bite sized” education that was very easy to understand and implement. Many programs have so much info that it is overwhelming. I loved the emailed handouts as well as the videos. I appreciated the videos being recorded so that I could look at them at my own pace when I was unable to attend class. It was also encouraging and beneficial to hear the others in the group talk about their experiences. She had excellent follow-up and has a way of explaining things in layman terms so anyone interested in becoming more healthy should have no problem whatsoever. Thank you Melissa!!!
I have to say that from my first conversation with Melissa I knew I had to do something to combat my health. I was fatigued all the time, bloated, my pain levels were at about a 12 (1-10), and I just knew I had to do something. I took her 21-day Detox and it changed my life. In 21 days, my pain level was down to about a 2, my cravings were gone, I am no longer bloated and miserable and my energy levels are amazing, plus I am sleeping so much better and I didn’t even know that was an issue. I would highly recommend working with Melissa, she guides you through step by step to make it as easy as possible. My life has been changed. You want her guidance.
If you are looking to make a change in your health and haven’t been able to do it yourself. I would highly recommend working with Melissa Deally. She made what seemed like a difficult process easy, with the incredible support, accountability and resources. It was wonderful not having to do it alone. When I was deciding whether or not to join I asked myself this question. “What do I have to gain by doing this?” I encourage you to do the same.
I took Melissa’s 4-week detox program and all I can say is “WOW”. I’ve taken many courses over the years on my healing journey and have done many detoxes but none of them have gone in-depth like Melissa’s. Her expertise, knowledge, and passion to set me up for success were clearly evident in how she structured the class. Our weekly calls were always so full of downloadable PDFs filled with knowledge, step-by-step processes, recipes, best practices, and the list goes on. Melissa’s program is a One-Stop-Shop to getting yourself back to feeling healthy, vibrant, and energized!
I was fortunate enough to have Melissa as a coach to do a detox during a stressful time of transition. It truly helped me stay focused on all that I had to do without going off the rails:). I was focused on my self care which really really helped! I highly recommend! And Melissa is an excellent coach!!
As someone who strives to reduce inflammation while eating a healthy, vegan diet I found Melissa’s cleanse eye opening, especially during the reintroduction phase. I knew I had sensitivities to certain foods already but it made me more aware of what might be right for my body and the things that weren’t working. It was also great to commit to a routine with the program and to become more conscious of the habits that served me as well as those that didn’t.
Thank You to Melissa Deally for the 14 day reset cleanse program. I’m now in day 12 and I must say I am very happy with it. Whilst my main objectives were around feeling better and having more energy, I have also lost 7 pounds which is a great bonus. I am sleeping better, I have more energy especially in the afternoons when I am usually drained, and my brain is working better (less ‘brain fog’). Melissa has coached me through the process, she explains the science behind the program very well, and I am already forming habits that will sustain these benefits beyond the cleanse. My biggest take away is the education that I have gained through the experience, you can read up on these things all you like but there’s nothing like actually doing it to make you understand how your body reacts to the foods you consume. Thanks Melissa.
I would like to express my gratitude for your guidance and coaching in my recent Sugar Challenge. When I initially signed up for the Sugar Challenge, I didn’t know what to expect. I have never been interested in diets and generally dismissive towards restrictive food regimes. This program was not like that at all. I learned so much about sugar and understanding it’s impact on my body and how to look for sneaky sugars. It was so easy to follow the program with Melissa checking in regularly. Figuring out what foods are best for your body and making new habits to support that is so key. This program is perfect for a fresh start or to just try something different. Melissa is an empathetic listener and understands that every body is different. I really felt supported and appreciated all the encouragement and coaching along the way.
Thanks very much!
28 Day Kick the Sugar Habit Program. This program, under the guidance of Melissa, has been life changing for me. As an older woman I have been faithfully putting pounds and inches on every year, just like research has shown. I tried to maintain what I thought was healthy eating and a regular exercise regime but nothing was working. I even bought the JJ Virgin Sugar Impact book., but looked through it and it felt overwhelming, so I did nothing. Having Melissa guiding this program, along with her regular advice and coaching app has been great, I have lost inches as well as pounds at a healthy rate. Plus I feel so much better with more energy, a clearer mind and less cravings. As well with the knowledge she has given me, I am sure I can maintain most of what I have learned. I definitely would take another course from Melissa. Thank you. Mahalo.
Hi Melissa I hope you’re new year is off to a great start! I wanted to reach out to thank you for helping me kick off my weight loss again because even through the holidays I stayed in track better then I ever have and since November I have lost 15 pounds!! 😄 Thank You
