How did you learn about Reboot Your Life?
My chiropractor recommended the movie.
What inspired you to do a Reboot?
The success that the two men in the film had inspired me as did the medical information related by the film.
How did the experience go for you?
It went really well. It was a very spiritual experience that has brought me more in touch with nature and the natural world.
Did you have any notable health or physical improvements?
Yes, see my photo above! Prior to the Reboot, I was beset by constant muscle pain that made it impossible to do the simplest things like opening a jar, holding up a book while reading, getting up and down from a seated position. I could not sleep because of HORRIBLE night muscle pains, and couldn’t even easily re-position myself in bed. Now I run every day and have even placed in the top third of local races. I play softball and can participate in almost any activity. I feel better than I did when I was twenty. I also had GERD but it has since vanished.
What was the toughest part about the Reboot experience?
The toughest part is the social aspect and having to answer so many questions all the time. It is also hard to deal with all the negativity and “concerns” people have about your health. Especially when these are the same people who said nothing while I was eating myself to death! It is hard to repeat yourself and to remain polite when asked repetitive and, honestly, insulting questions. The remarks reveal people’s fears, though.
What habits have you maintained and kept a part of your everyday life?
I am a vegan, and I exercise every day. I treat food as a resource for health and not as a party cruise.
What is your lasting impression of the Reboot experience?
My impression is that I have become a beacon for other people. I am complemented many times daily. I have a new body, new abilities and an entirely new life. Not to mention a new wardrobe.
