Read the Sister 2 Sister Magazine article about the Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox.
These are Dr. Roni’s 1st and 2nd “At Home Graduates” – Maurice M. and Rosalie F.
My Name is Maurice M. but everyone calls me Ishmael. I ordered the Home program because I have three young children who don’t permit me the time to visit you at Martha’s Vineyard. I started the program two months ago and since then I have lost 45 pounds. The program really gave me a jump start to wanting to eat and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Before I started the program, I was 100 lbs overweight and suffering from Hypertension extremely bad, Now my hypertension is within normal range consistently. I still have 55 more pounds to go but what a difference 45 pounds make when it’s not on your body. What motivated me to get the program was my three young daughters who I want to see grow up, my mother who had three strokes, and told me not to be a burden on my children and wife by having strokes as she had from poor diet and a lack of exercise. Finally, I did it for myself because it was time to stop talking about it and start doing something about it. However, what pushed me over the edge was definitely the article in sister to sister magazine which my wife subscribes to, the power of print media. Since the initial 21 day detox, I have now given up red meat completely accept for lamb during the Passover, Chicken, and fish I eat only occasionally. I have also eliminated all fast foods from my diet. I have been on a 7 day live food diet, which was great because it flushed a lot of mucus from my system. The program is great but if you are going to do it on your own, you must have the support of your family and the discipline to stick to the program because you can be easily tempted.

Dear Dr. Roni, I could never thank you enough for helping me live a healthier, happier life. Several months ago I was overweight, ashamed, and miserable. I could feel that the weight gain was taking a toll on me physically. I read Jamie Foster Brown’s experience in Sister 2 Sister Magazine and thought I’d give it a try. I am so glad I did because I have lost 18 pounds! My Mother is also doing the program with me and has lost 20 pounds s. Thank you so much, Dr. Roni, for developing a program that allows the body to eliminate toxins and unwanted weight without having to purchase prepared foods, take over the counter drugs, and spend grueling hours at the gym – most of the time with little to no results. I love that this a natural way for the body to lose weight…and it’s safe. I am so pleased with the results and I will stay committed to the program so that I can continue to live a healthier, happier life. God Bless you, Dr. Roni.

Dear Dr. Roni,
I would like to thank you for the most memorable and blessed experience I have had in a long time. When I checked into the retreat I was 286 pounds. After spending 21 days with you, I lost 40 pounds. I would never believe that I could lose 40 pounds in 21 days. As you know when I walked in I could barely make it up a flight of stairs without taking a break. I was once the fastest lineman in the NFL playing with the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. I’m back in shape eating the right foods and cutting out sugar in my diet. It’s been 3 months since I completed your detox program and I’ve never looked or felt better since many years of playing football. Oh, by the way I have been ordering the supplements and I love them; I don’t miss a day. You have changed my life and will never forget my experience with you. May god Bless You!!! ”

I had such a wonderful time at the inn last time; a much-needed rest, plus where else do you get the bonus of losing 10 pounds in just 6 days practically painlessly and without ever being hungry. It gave me a great start to getting back on a healthy track (the liver detox really helped too). Again, thanks for all your good advice, Warmly”
I spent 10 days with you and lost 10 pounds. Even though I am one of your few patients who elected to eat salads and fruits and didn’t chose to do colonic’s, I still lost sixteen pounds and I feel and look phenomenal. At 69 years of age, and 186 lbs I feel like I am 50 years old again.
I came to Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat with mercury poisoning. As I fasted the 1st week I had a bad rash, a runny nose, itchy skin, and my nipples burned continually. During the first week, I couldn’t lift my head off the pillow. One the 8th day, and every day thereafter, I awoke with clear skin, bright eyes and an overwhelming erg to take a very long walk. I had turned the corner… I arrived home with a significant change in my body composition and 15 lbs lighter.
I have learned so much since coming to the retreat. During the 7 day fast I lost 8 pounds at the retreat and 2 more when I came home. I came to the retreat weighing 134 pounds and now I am steadily holding at 125. Through Dr. Roni’s guidance, I have learned a lifestyle of healthy eating. When I reached my early thirties my metabolism began slowing down and I began gaining weight even though I hadn’t changed my regular exercise or eating habits. I was stuck at 134 pounds. Dr. Roni passed on the knowledge I carved to become the healthiest person I can be. Now I am making my own juice for myself and family as well as watching out for foods I didn’t realize was bad for us. I am healthier, more energetic, and more confident than I have ever been. Thanks! Sincerely,
