“I really didn’t understand how gut health affected everything else, and I didn’t know how good healthy food tastes! I had a long series of follow-ups with endocrinologist, and they told me I needed surgery to get my thyroid taken out. So I was looking for a natural remedy. When I met Maraya, life was controlling me. I wasn’t controlling it. I tended to put everyone else and everything else in my life on the front burner. I put my business on the front burner, my family on the front burner, and I always get the leftovers. She made me realize that none of that’s gonna change unless I change it. So I joined the program because I just wanted to choose me, and I deserve it. In the program, we really worked on the boundaries. Maraya could see my exhaustion. Life was too chaotic to be intimate. And my childhood was traumatic. So there’s a wonderful mindset coach in the program. We addressed my hormone imbalances, so I’m no longer sluggish in the evening, and my energy is pretty stable throughout the day. Maraya was my journey to intentional self-care. My journey to great sex. My journey to pleasure. She was the catalyst for my journey to a healthier me.”
“There is this confidence and knowing that Maraya is there to be alongside you and to support you in a way that feels good to you. Because she made an effort to get to know me, I didn’t have to do things that didn’t align with me, like counting calories, measuring my body, and tracking my food. I am not a before & after picture. The work with Maraya led to a total health transformation. There was a whole other life available to me that I couldn’t see.”
“When I joined your program, I was feeling out of whack. I woke up exhausted, even if I slept a full eight hours. I had weight gain. My metabolism had changed, and I felt like my hormones were out of balance. And most of all my periods were very uncomfortable. And yet, I was just plugging away at life and doing what I needed to get by. It was difficult to be present with my four-year-old daughter, which takes quite a bit of energy, and I’m a dancer, so my endurance, creativity, and expression were stunted. It was hard to remember the choreography or dream up new choreography for my students. Working with Maraya and the nutritionist changed everything. I felt like my body started repairing immediately. I stopped having those crashes mid-day. When I woke up in the morning, I no longer felt like junk. I had energy. I open my eyes, and I am ready to go. I’m spending more time outdoors and maintaining a challenging dance schedule. My cycle rebalanced, and my libido increased. I even lost 10 pounds. The fear about my family history started to go away because I knew I was taking care of my body.”
“When I looked in the mirror, I wasn’t seeing myself anymore, and for a time, I was just willing to accept that. I was feeling failed by the medical system. I was going through, like a robot, in life. Now, after working with Maraya for 12 months, I have my health back. I have unraveled the GI issues that were plaguing me for years. I’ve reconnected with my family. I’m a partner to my husband again. My kids get the authentic me again.”

“I turned 50 the year I hired Maraya. I was a brand new empty nester, and I really wanted to do a better job of caring for my health, as I was experiencing overwhelming exhaustion and fatigue. I wasn’t as alert as I wanted to be, and then of course, there was the perimenopausal stuff too.
After a year in the program, working with Maraya and all of the master coaches, my days have felt lighter. The brain fog has lifted. I’m energized. And I’ve allowed a lot more peace in my life.”

“I wanted to eat healthy but those foods made me bloated. Before working with Maraya, I worked with a Chinese medicine doctor for a year, hoping it would help with my gut health issues, but it never did. Now within a few months of working with Mayara, I have more energy, better gut health, and better mental health.”

I had been bloated for so long, it was driving me nuts. A FODMAP trial hadn’t worked.
Maraya saw it more like this whole big picture and connected all of these dots. Following
Maraya’s protocol, the bloating completely went away.”
