“Little did I know that once I did Dr Liu’s program my business would go through the roof – if I had I would have done it much sooner!
I had been working for one of the major banks, putting in long hours, enjoying good food and wine, doing a lot of travelling and putting my body through a lot of stress. I felt terrible with no energy and was very lethargic.
I wasn’t happy and really annoyed that I had let myself go. My doctor had put me on medication for high blood pressure and life was looking a little bleak.
Pretty soon the weight starting to stack on and before I knew it I was well over 100 kilos.
For somebody who had always been fit and healthy I knew I had to do something.
One of my colleagues had started to lose a fair bit of weight and we had all been noticing how great he looked. When I asked what he was doing he simply said Dr Liu.
I made an appointment and as soon as I met him I really liked his approach and what he offered.
He looked into my eyes, at my tongue and felt my pulse and said all things considered I wasn’t too bad but I could be a lot better.
He assured me he could not only help me lose weight but also get off the medication I was on.
I started the program immediately and while it was pretty tough going I was determined to stick it out.
My body was being given nutrition for the first two weeks, just not in the way I was used to. I’ll be very honest, when I first starting drinking the herbs it was like being hit in the head with a shovel, to say they are an acquired taste would be an understatement.
However I persisted, and in the first couple of days I really noticed a physical difference. The white’s of my eyes were actually white, my hair looked better, my nails were stronger and my skin looked fresher. Once I saw these signs it gave me the incentive to continue.
I did feel lethargic and tired but I made sure I took it relatively easy for those first two weeks, I went straight home after work, didn’t exercise, just relaxed.
I very quickly started to lose the weight and was on my way.
However life and my busy schedule got in the way and saw me very quickly revert to my old ways. I was eating and drinking too much and started to put the weight back on.
I knew the only way to lose the weight again was to re-do the program which I did about six weeks later and to this day have never looked back.
My life has totally turned around. I left the bank shortly after seeing Dr Liu and went into business with my wife on the Sunshine Coast. Since consulting him I have not only lost more than 20 kilos but come off my blood pressure medication.
I feel 20 years younger, am so much sharper mentally and my outlook on life is very different.
My mental focus is so much clearer and centred. Due to the program, I now have such clarity of thought and when problems arise at work I deal with it straight away with a very clear head.
Previously I would have gone home and needed quite a few beers to wind down, now I get home totally relaxed.
Long-standing clients have noticed a real shift in my outlook and new clients comment on my ability to deal with anything. Business is booming due to word of mouth and I couldn’t be happier.
I am by no means perfect, I still slip up from time to time, at the end of the day I’m human but thanks to Dr Liu I now have the tools to recognise when and how to address it.
Successfully completing the 101 Program and sticking with it for three years is without doubt one of the greatest achievements of my life.
It’s not something you stop and start, it becomes a part of your life and I can’t see a day when I won’t follow it.”
