Nutritional Coaching Testimonials

Treasured Testimonials over the years…

Grace has changed my life! I’ve lost 20 pounds in six weeks. I still have 15 more pounds to lose, but Grace has given me the tools that I need to reach my goal on my own. She also has taught me how to eat correctly and to love exercise. My husband will verify that I was a couch potato before I met Grace. Because I feel so great physically, emotionally & mentally, issues with my family and stresses at work have pretty much gone away! I really like Grace’s holistic approach to achieving great health! The best part of working with the lovely Grace is that it was pretty much painless. I have spent the last 20 years of my life following drastic diets to lose weight, and I can’t believe that I have lost 20 pounds in such a short time with very little discomfort. I feel lucky to have met Grace and wish everyone who has issues with his/her weight could have the privilege of working with her.

I went from size 16 to size 7. I’ve lost 40-plus pounds on my 5 foot frame. I’m pain free with energy increased and anxiety diminished.

The cleansing Phoenix Program under Grace’s supervision was incredibly wonderful! My life was filled with many digestion problems (stomach aches, gas, bloating, cramps, constipation, distended abdomen and headaches). It seemed as though anything I ate was hurting my stomach and getting worse as I was getting older. I thought I might have a series of colon hydrotherapy sessions. And when Grace suggested a cleansing program, which she tailored a Personalized Diet especially for my sensitive body type, I became very excited and decided to make the commitment. So I combined colon hydrotherapy sessions with the cleansing program, lots of water, more raw foods, freshly juiced vegetables, the superfood pure synergy enzymes, chewing my food well and the incredible love and support from Grace, for an amazing life and body changing experience in less than 3 months! Now I rarely have any of my past symptoms. I love my 75% raw food diet, my champion juicer, my increased energy level, losing 10 pounds, and yes, even the unexpected delightful benefit of an increased libido. But what I love the most is the loving relationship and heart connection I have with this amazing woman. Thank you Grace, from the bottom of my colon.

In September I visited Grace Kingsley at the Petaluma Healing Arts and Rejuvenation Center to consult with her about detoxifying. My main concerns were anxiety, a rash that would not go away, and difficulty digesting my food. She suggested a Cleansing Phoenix Program. I went through the month long cleanse with Grace’s constant personalized diet guidance, tips, and especially with the aid of colonics, and felt like a new person. I felt so good eating the raw food diet, that I continue to eat raw. I have not been sick once in that time, do not have lulls in my day, feel more grounded, and have more energy than ever. I run four miles a day and swim one and a half two to three times a week. But what really convinced me that this is the way to live was training for and completing a 150 mile bicycle ride, all while eating raw food. I am convinced that the Phoenix Program under Grace’s reprogramming made it possible for me to so efficiently use the pure and beautiful energy that vegetables have to offer us! Grace is a caring, informed, and intuitive to the needs of the individual and how to make the program a success with continuous inspiration.

“Grace is an absolute wealth of knowledge about health and healing from the inside-out. For the past five days, I’ve participated in the Blessed Herbs fasting cleanse. This is a challenging program, since I chose the “best option”, sticking only to green juices and herb packets. For the first few days, I experienced tiredness, nausea and some depression, due to detoxification and sugar withdrawal… I discovered, this is part of the healing process and so worth the effort! Now I feel a myriad of benefits… more grounded, weight loss, increased energy, enjoying radiant skin/reduced blemishes, I’m filled with gratitude, more in-tune with nature and most importantly present with mind-body-spirit connection. I look forward to my next colon hydrotherapy appointment at Petaluma Healing Arts Center!!” Thanks again Grace for all your help! See you soon.

Thank you for leading me through another great cleanse. You made the experience so easy for me. All your advice and nutritional guidance were so helpful. And thank you for suggesting the Food Allergy and Sensitivity Saliva test. You really are an angel in my life. I am feeling totally rejuvenated, clean and healthy after following your diet and herbs and COLONICS. Thanks to you and your Phoenix Program, I am reborn.



Grace, You are an amazing person and I am so lucky to have crossed paths with you. You were a wonderful teacher and coach to me as I went through my cleansing journey. After my first colonic all my stomach problems were gone and have not come back. People approach me and ask me what kind of ab exercises I do and I giggle to myself. feel fantastic. I feel light, slim and have calm energy. I have recommended you to so many people when they ask what is different about me. I feel I am a much better person physically, mentally and spiritually because of you and the program and I can never thank you enough.

Warm Regards,

I did the Phoenix Program with Grace Kingsley. I had several wonderful benefits. In addition to losing 7 lbs (10 over the entire month), my skin looked radiant and my hair looked shiny. Even my husband noticed the difference. My mental alertness increased and I had a lot of energy! I couldn’t believe it after no solid food for a week! I did the Ejuva cleanse for a month prior to beginning Grace’s retreat. This really helped my to prepare my body by gradually eliminating harmful foods and beginning the detox process. The cleanse felt very gentle yet effective. I also took Pure Synergy Superfoods, which contributed to my increased energy. I was even able to work about 10 hours during the week of the retreat. I also did three colonics the week following the retreat. This was very helpful to continue the detox benefits as I was gradually re-introducing foods.

I have had some previous experience with cleansing. I’ve attended an institute four times in which the focus is cleansing through raw foods. I felt that Grace’s retreat was a better experience for several reasons. It was less expensive, in that I didn’t have the travel expense. I could do it from the comfort of my own home. I am self-employed and was able to work full-time during the Ejuva portion and part-time during the juice retreat. It was also less radical in terms of food choices. The juices Grace served were delicious, so I didn’t feel deprived.

My experience of the cleanse was that I felt supported before, during and after because I chose to do the entire package. I would definitely repeat this cleanse and would recommend doing the Ejuva and colonics in addition to the juice retreat. I felt that the combination of all three helped me to take full advantage of the juicing retreat.

I am a hair stylist and I suffered for years from vertigo from the chemicals in dyes. Doctors did not help. After the fast, the improvement was more than 50%. After using deep cleansing products, there was no vertigo whatsoever! I also have better nutritional habits now. Its really a positive experience, and helps generate a very high level of energy. The fasting retreat leaves you squeaky clean from the inside out.

-B. Morrison

This fast was great! Just sit back and Grace does all the work and what a job! I didn’t want it to end. And the health benefits are still evident. I lost weight without losing energy thanks to Pure Synergy. My skin is clear and healthy, my allergies have dried up. Great nutritional information.

When I first signed up for her raw foods class I was skeptical. But I came out realizing it was a wonderful program and well worth the time. Even skeptics will be satisfied.

-Sue Shriver

Dear Grace, I broke the fast with soaked figs and then later had a marvelous salad with sprouts. Elimination is now intact. Many thanks for your organization and helpfulness. I am happy to report that this was the most efficacious of my life.

In addition to her work as a massage therapist, Grace is extremely well versed in other areas of health care. I attended a presentation she gave on the preparation of raw foods and I was greatly impressed. She was completely prepared and organized and made the subject of raw food preparation come alive. Grace prepared an entire meal, had colorful and well detailed packets of recipes for each person. And, the food was absolutely delicious! Grace is truly a woman of many talents.
