On Core Values Detox Plus

What did you like best about Core Values Detox Plus?: I like the resources best such as the files that I can download for future reference like: other names for sugars, grocery list, what to stay away from. When I have “tools” at my fingertips for later use, it makes it a very applicable and do-able program for me to stick with continuing.

What was your biggest “aha” during Core Values Detox Plus? The one thing you’ll use on a more consistent basis?: The things i will look for and read on labels.

When recommending this program to others, what would you tell them?:
— Useful information
— Key concepts about VALUES and BEHAVIORS that LEAD to cleaner eating; v. just the “diet” itself
— Disease prevention through things to avoid; in addition to disease prevention, more: energy, feeling good, clean skin, peace, etc.
— Educational information that really is just the start of a priceless journey of being informed on what goes in our food
— I would highly promote [Barbara’s] science background and [her] ability to answer any questions that come up about topics “or” research a question when it comes up to give the most accurate scientific answer. I really like [her] science and analytical background bc I can relate to that. [Barbara is] a good teacher in that [she] explain the background/”why” so that I understand not just 1 answer ~ I understand the CONCEPT that can be applied to other methodologies.

It is my pleasure to highly recommend Barbara McNeely and Mariposa Naturals.

My husband and I sought Barbara’s professional services for health and nutrition counseling regarding a few issues that we were seeking a resolution to. Trying to balance two busy careers on the go with good nutrition, healthy choices and quick, easy results seemed an impossible task. Then Barbara stepped in.

She spent time with us on an initial consultation getting to know us, our life style and our specific health and medical issues. Then she set to work preparing for us a personal plan that was easy to follow, resolved our continuous time crunch and still provided us with great ideas to get the nutrition we needed into our busy schedules in a way that made sense for us.

We have also tried several recipes from Mariposa Naturals which have all been delicious and well balanced. I recommend anyone follow Mariposa Naturals to learn of the professional advice Barbara McNeely offers to maintain nutritional health and environmental well being.

My name is Dick McNeely. I have had asthma since I was 3 years old. Both of my parents were smokers and later so were both of my step parents. My first attack of asthma was triggered by playing in a pile of sawdust. My father used to take me to work with him occasionally and the chief boilerman at the factory somehow got stuck with looking after me. The boiler was fed by wood shavings and sawdust, and since I was there most of the day, I would play in the sawdust. At the end of the day, I was having trouble breathing. My father called the family doctor and I was diagnosed with asthma. At first, symptoms were not severe, but steadily became more intense and by the time I was in school, I missed as much school as I attended. In those early years, there was very little effective medication for asthma. Over time, more things came on the market and symptomatic relief got much better, but there was the underlying urgency of always needing to know where my rescue inhaler was.

Barbara and I became serious about each other in the 1990s and were married in 2002. From the time we met she was sensitive to any perfumes. She was a smoker and she quit in 2001 after her sister was diagnosed with lung cancer. Following the cessation of smoking, she experienced daily migraines and was hospitalized for that for a week. The list of things she had to avoid was very long with fragrances being at the top of the list. Her treating physician provided a list of foods to avoid and we started with that. After returning from the hospital we eliminated the food items and expanded the list of fragrance free personal products and household products we purchased. Over time, Barbara gained control of her migraines as we both learned what to avoid. We found a fragrance free dry cleaner and as the incidence of migraines lessened, I began to notice that I was no longer experiencing the daily use of my rescue inhaler. I use daily medications to control my asthma, but I no longer have that feeling that I am just a trigger away from an attack of asthma. I attribute that to the fragrance free household. That means fragrance free laundry detergent, fragrance free dish washing detergent, fragrance free deodorant, soap, shampoo, and on and on. Anything you have around you with a fragrance can trigger an unexpected and unpleasant reaction for those of us who are sensitive to fragrances.

I no longer enjoy the scent of perfume when a woman walks by in a shopping mall or at work. It is sickening to me now. Some men are just as bad as women in their use of fragranced personal products. My thought is always, I hope they don’t have children at home to endure that.

Fragrance Free! The healthy way to breathe.
