I have been a registered nurse for the past 37 years and I like to think I focus on healthy life habits most of the time. I ran a weight management program in 2005-2010 through a cardiac clinic and was intrigued by the trending healthy heart eating habits we were promoting. Lots of whole grains and fibers were promoted, and I began to learn about good fats. In the past few years, I heard about food sensitivities and “allergies” and your gut’s reaction to many of these foods. Many of these foods were the ones I promoted. That is when I decided to be involved in a program where I would test my gut and see how my body reacted. I never thought I would be able to participate in an elimination diet and stick to it. But, I did, and it really surprised me. Within three weeks I felt great! I remember my husband commenting on the amount of energy I had and asking if I thought it was the food plan. I stuck with the eating plan for over three months……and did great. Even after adding my normal foods back in after six months I lost 37 pounds. I feel great!Marjanna Winafeld
Dr. Fong is simply wonderful. I originally sought her out for supplements to help negate my RA symptoms and she was so helpful in recommending many that are making a difference. She has helped me immensely with my anxiety issues and has helped me overcome alot of my driving fears through hypnotherapy. So thankful she’s in our area.Shawn Alverson
I started seeing Alice in the spring of this year. She was recommended by my naturopathic physician. I was experiencing anxiety about many things. My nerves were off the charts reacting to every little stress. My blood pressure was high and I had a fear of taking my blood pressure. I was also experiencing digestive distress. Alice taught me breathing techniques with biofeedback. Through this practice I was able to not only get my nerves under control, but I haven’t felt this good in ten years. It improved my mood and I am able to handle the stress with the breathing. It is incredible. My blood pressure has returned to normal and through the breathing lessons I have been able to monitor my own blood pressure without fear. My digestion is back to normal as well. I have also used the breathing to improve my running, and am currently getting better mile times than I have in 4 years. Alice is a healer!!! Thank YouSue Y.
When was the last time you spent 90 minutes with your doctor? I went to Dr. Fong to address my thyroid and lose some weight. She recommended that I try the elimination diet to see if it would help in regulating both. Six weeks later, I have lost 14 lbs and feel much better. I also found out that I have an intolerance to certain foods. I was completely unaware before undergoing this diet. Thanks!Kathleen Arban
I appreciate that Dr. Fong spent the time to really get to know me and my lifestyle before making any recommendations about testing or treatments. She is gentle and a very good listener. I am so pleased to have her as a resource. I can’t recommend her highly enough!Robin Wedewer
Several months ago I released an affirmation into the universe of perfect health. Included in this affirmation is discontinuing high blood pressure medication and blood thinners. A few months later, through miraculous synchronicity I met Alice. The first time she plugged me in for a bio-feedback session my heart beat was literal off the chart. In less than one month I was off the medication and have consistent normal blood pressure now. Soon after, I contracted chronic back pain. Through massage, hypnotherapy and Chod I resolved the back pain and headed off reoccurring neck pain for which I had surgery fifteen years ago. Alice is now a regular part of my naturopathic approach to realizing my affirmation of perfect health.Bob C.
You have truly changed my life forever. I believe the gods have sent you to the people. You have given me my life back. After 25 years of pain & suffering I’m finally free. I’ve kissed death in the face twice now. Thanks to you, never again. I should have been a statistic. Like so many others I know. Or, used to know. I feel like I’ve picked up right where I left off 25 years ago when the medical industry decided to start having their way with me. I’m 50 now and I feel like I’m 25. Imagine having the strength and body of 25 with the wisdom of 50. I can live to 100. I feel like I have the strength of 10 men. I feel like I can do anything I want. I feel so smart. I can’t expose my mind to enough knowledge of my surroundings each day. My job seem so easy now. I love it! This town seems too small for me. I need more. My new story is just beginning. So much I want to do and now I know all I have to do is choose what its going to be and let the happiness come to me. Freedom feels so good. euphoric. Everyday.
May all the love, happiness and riches in the world bless you, Alice Fong. Thank you so so so much. I’m so happy. I can dream again. I lost my dreams so long ago I cant even remember. It feels so good to dream again. It feels so good to walk around with my head held high. Knowing nobody has nothing on me. No more doctors, no more doctors pills, no more going to the pharmacy , no more running out of meds and scrambling to get a prescriptions filled on a holiday weekend, no more caring around a 4 space daily pill box taking morning, noon, evening and bedtime. a total of 17 pills a day everyday of my life. 25 years. No more pill cabinet in the house. No more side effects, no more laying around in bed all day on the weekends watching TV. No more going on vacation spending more time in my hotel room. Freedom! Priceless! I feel my emotions again. Happy, makes me cry sometimes, my body will vibrate like chills when any joyful moment (words, visuals, sounds) enters my heart. I feel everything again. depression does not exist. I see the good in everything. I see only the positive and move forward with goodness and joy. I put on my headphones and dance no matter where Im at. Get only looks of smiles everywhere I go. Im a great leader and even better follower. I can love again. Only need find the true definition of to word. Now I know what I’m looking for. How much fun am I going to have? Endless!
Alice restored my confidence, taught me how to relax, how to trust, listen, be patient. How to eat, How to shop, how to cook, how to do my own homework, how to save myself for a lifetime. All I need bring to the table was trust, determination and a willingness to live. I remember walking out of her office that first day. She looked me in the eyes and said “don’t give up”. What she didn’t know is I never give up. But I needed to hear it. I was so happy she said it. Not giving up comes easy for me if I have a good enough reason. Living, the only best reason. Right next to dying for a loved one. The best part of having a terrible childhood and a life full off sickness. It makes you stronger then the average man if you overcome it. The past will never haunt me again. I cant wait to see what the future brings me. So excited and happy every day.
Friends, its a new way of life. A better way of life. The only true way of life. If you do this right you will never look back. Its not hard. Only takes determination and a little time. Do your home work. Learn what’s right. A very small history in your new, long healthy life. It will be the best decision you every made in your life.
Alice, never stop. You are the future. You are the only true answer to excellent, independent health. Hands down!Wade Eaton
Alice was able to bring me into a meditative state so i was able to look (without judgement) at the deeper reasons for why i tend to become obsessive and anxious in my thinking. I felt she was truly invested in my healing, extremely compassionate, and it doesn’t hurt that she has a soothing voice and great sense of humor too! I would recommend Alice to anyone who is looking for a meaningful healing experienceA.L.
I had the wonderful pleasure to experience my first hypnotherapy session under the guidance of Alice. Her warmth and compassionate nature led me through an awakening of great sadness and ultimate JOY that I have never felt before. Her exceptional gift in hypnotherapy left me with a personal realization that life is beautiful, to be myself, and everything will be alright. How could it get any better than that? Thank you Alice and when can I see you again? 🙂 !!Paul Despres
Client with a fear of flying for the last 10 years. After 2 sessions, reports:
“I did SO WELL on all of my flights! I used the visualizations and breathing techniques that I learned from you and from a book on managing anxiety, and I can’t tell you what a difference it made. Thank you so much for your help — I really never thought I could ever get better at flying, and you proved me wrong. :)”
I am feeling much better lately! The deep relaxation or hypnotic state lasted most the rest of the day for me, but I have had an inner sense of calm that has lasted since our session. I really enjoyed it and it certainly has had a lasting effect. I definitely still have my moments of stress, but I’m finding it easier to bring myself back to a more relaxed state. The biggest thing I have noticed is that I feel very peaceful and don’t let little things bother me so much – especially external things beyond my control. Speaking of that, I feel more in control of my life and daily activities – like a greater sense of confidence in my abilities if that makes sense.Jake D.
I tried hypnotherapy for smoking cessation after trying many other methods (cold turkey, gum, patches, the Wellbutrin nightmare) with marginal success. When I left the session, I had a revulsion to the smell of cigarettes and a deeper sense of motivation to quit than I’ve ever had before. While one session was not enough to completely re-write 23 years of nicotine-addled brain chemistry and routine, I know the session helped because I am smoking much less and not enjoying it when I do. I know I made significant progress and plan to give Alice at Holistic Love another shot to help me build on this positive change.
1 week after her first session, this client reports in a follow up email:
“ Hi Alice,
Thanks for checking in! I’ve actually been doing very well since my session. I have only had one cigarette since that Saturday morning (Wednesday of this week is when I cheated) and I didn’t really need it. I feel fairly calm and strong; and I did not use anything additional for support (the patch/gum). I am eating a bit more candy than normal, but that’s just an excuse to eat candy I think 🙂 You really helped me to realize how strong I really am, and that I really CAN do this on my own. I have had a few cravings, but very manageable. I think the one cigarette I had on Wednesday was more of a test for myself than anything. And I felt just fine afterwards; and the next day I did not really want or need to jump right back in to smoking regularly. So I would say our session was extremely successful and at this point I think I will try and continue down this path on my own. However, I may need to make a visit down the road, who knows? Maybe our talk was all I really needed. Time will tell I guess. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me and am SO thankful I took the chance on you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”Lisa P.
