Eat right, lose weight and should a medical challenge occur, favor non-drug medical solutions. A simple equation. Why then do so many beautiful, awesomely talented men and women, allow themselves to remain overweight? Why do they continue to medicate blood pressure while prayin’, wishin’ and hopin’ “borderline” diabetes won’t crossover?! I decided to write these questions in a grant, named it THE SERENITY CHALLENGE© and pitched it to several angel investors. Apparently they had the same questions for all of you, since it was approved!
The SERENITY CHALLENGE©, is the first grant-funded, nationwide wellness initiative in the country. Services are offered thru The Serenity Weight Loss and Detoxification Program©; a NY corporation, formed in 1992. Eligible participants may enroll for just an out-of-pocket co-pay of $10.00 The enrollment fee provides a free lifetime product ordering site, which may be used at anytime. Wellness coaching is offered completely online, via social media and teleconferencing. The program is a fun, fast-paced 14 day experience with no-hype, no dieting and plenty of results. Ninety percent of all participants release 10 lbs or more during the first 14 days; 76% continue.
Eligibility criteria include: First time Serenity program member; male or female; 30+ yrs of age; 200 lbs or more. This nationwide initiative seeks to alleviate high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, renal (kidney) and prostate disease.Thus, eligible applicants will also have one or more of these conditions.
The SERENITY CHALLENGE is based on a 3-point wellness model:
- Garbage-Out or Detox: Gentle elimination of toxins from the body via the colon and kidneys. Find out what simple grocery store items can be used.
- Garbage-In or Change the way you eat: Learn how to minimize or avoid the 4 most harmful food groups.
- Restore and Repair: Just as one would rebuild a transmission on a car, it is imperative that we replenish the body with the required “Mighty 90” . Don’t know what the “mighty 90 are”? Join the challenge and find out.
Contact Serenity’s home office at (404) 445-8579 for your intake interview, which will take about 15-20 minutes. Michelle Edmonds, (program director) will ask basic medical information, including your weight. While the intake interview is a Q & A over the phone, the $10.00 enrollment is done online.
