“When I first came to Charley, my health was in a severe downward spiral despite my many efforts to restore it. I had been diagnosed with lupus, I was severely fatigued, 20 lbs overweight and I was badly constipated with much pain and gas after eating anything.
Charley quickly became a trusted and respected teacher. In a matter of only a few months, Charley taught me how to jumpstart my body’s own restorative powers. This was a very intense and challenging process. But I am growing continuously more joyous due to the wisdom I have uncovered and the self-discovery that Charley has helped me achieve.
I will forever be grateful to him for his gifts to me of wisdom, knowledge, compassion and friendship. He is a most amazing person who chooses to contribute to others with the full force of his being.”

“For 3 years I lived with intense Sacro Iliac pain (pain in the butt - literally). I was pretty much unable to sit down for more than a few minutes at a time. Driving for more than 20 minutes was almost intolerable. I had to stand up to do everything and even standing was painful, but bearable.
I had tried many types of bodywork, acupuncture, different energy healing modalities, nothing had any effect. This was especially frustrating, since I am a massage therapist myself.
Within a month of beginning work with Charley, the pain began to subside and after three months it is now gone completely. I am so happy every day to be able to sit comfortably; such a simple thing, but a true appreciation of it comes only after not being able to sit for years. Words really can’t describe it. And I have lost a lot of weight, especially in my belly. My daily energy is way better. And I’ve improved a lifelong condition of borderline high blood pressure.”

“I lost 15 pounds over 6 months, and I wasn’t trying to lose weight. I bought a size 9 pair of jeans 2 months ago, and now they hang off me and I have to wear long shirts to cover what's being exposed. I ordered two pairs of jeans over the internet, not knowing what size to buy, and bought a size 7, and a size 5, and, it was the size 5 that was the perfect fit! Yayy!“

“I recently finished a full year of working with Charley Cropley to gain control over my sugar addiction. Before, it wasn't clear to me that many of the ways that I often felt - negative, frustrated, angry, hopeless - were the result of how I was eating, not who I was.
Charley knew this was an addiction and he treated it with the seriousness that an addiction needs to be treated with. Since being sugar-free, I have discovered a calm and peacefulness within me that others who have known me for a long time clearly recognize as quite different from how I was before.
After years of saying “I’ll stop eating sugar, tomorrow,” I finally decided to make a commitment and stop NOW. I couldn’t have done it without you, Charley.”

“I was having concerns about my sons health - he was 11 yrs old and 108lbs. He was having a difficult time concentrating at school, worn out, cranky (more often than not), constantly hungry, indigestion, you name it. More importantly – he had lost his smile.
In the first weeks of your nutritional recommendations was a miracle. My son had more energy and he lost a couple of pounds in a few short days. In the subsequent weeks we’ve uncovered more than one food allergies that have completely changed my sons life. The evidence and transformation is undeniable. I am very happy to say that my son has been reborn in some sense…. He loves his body (now a normal 84 lbs), loves himself and has a new air of confidence of who he is. Most important my son has his smile back.
People have since noticed the change in my son and in myself. Most notably is the weight loss – I’ve gone from a peak of 202 lbs to 181 lbs today. And these people ask me - what kind of a diet is that? I have to just laugh and say it’s not “a diet” - it goes deeper than just losing weight. It’s eating healthy, being educated…. You need to go see Charley.
You have such goodness in your heart Charley – Thank you."
