I had a 24 year old cousin with a disease that kept her in wheelchair, unable to sleep at all, and in pain so unbearable the wind brushing across her feet brought her excrutiating pain. She had RSD and no one has found a cure (nothing on the web). The closest cure: pain meds. Canadian doctors had her on seven types of meds and pain killers for four years, and the disease was spreading. Also, she drank seven sodas a day and ate junk constantly. Her doctors hadn’t touched this issue (well, one said she shouldn’t drink soda). Craig Lane (combined with our chirpractor) changed her life. For the first time in four years she was able to wear shoes and is pain-free. After eight months of direction with Craig, she is TOTALLY healed. The trajectory of her life, her family’s life, my life, my familiy’s life and all of our “legacies” will be forever impacted. THANK YOU, CRAIG FOR “SEEING HER AS HEALED”.

I have had the pleasure of working with Craig over the past three years. He started out as a dear teacher and our family nutritionist, and helped give our family the tools to heal my husband from two cronic diseases, ITP and hip collapse (which the doctors said there was no cure). He is now the nutritional consultant for our company, Creative Cultures. Craig maintains a thriving practice called Health Alchemy that embraces customized healing plans for each individual’s special physical, spiritual, and emotional needs as he recognizes the wisdom in multifaceted healing. Some people have criticized Craig of being “overwhelming” to the innocent bystander who thinks they are healthy just because they eat organic and exercise ( I myself used to be one of these). The truth is, he just knows so damn much compared to most physicians that I’ve met, that he will literally blow your mind when you first meet him!

Craig’s approaches are preventative, helping to support sustainable health; holistic, and effective. I trust Craig far and away over an M.D. to interpret my blood panel results.

J. Paul Wayne

Senior Advisor, Organization Design

Craig has the intuitive knowledge of a true healer coupled with the factual data of a science-based nutritionist. I worked with him to help me overcome specific health imbalances which were sapping my energy and wreaking havoc on my digestive system. After several food-based cleanses and by simply adding and deleting certain foods, I learned how to feel better, almost immediately. Craig is the real thing and I will continue to recommend him without hesitation.

When I first went to Craig, I had a myriad of health complaints, not the least of which were migraines for 50 years. I have not had a migraine in a year and a half which is nothing less than a miracle. What I’m most impressed with besides his knowledge, is his timely response to questions and personal attention. He is a very dedicated professional.

He will go out of his way to research information on health issues pertinent to the client. He has worked extensively with several members of our family, and has been most helpful to my daughter who was diagnosed with a neurological disorder. She was taking 11 medications which were not helping. Nine months after beginning treatment with Craig, she is showing positive signs of improvement in her disorder! We are grateful to Craig for his many personal and professional skills, and value him highly.

I am really getting a lot out of your new format. I just print everything and dig through it in odd moments. The schedules are easy to follow and I print one to hang on the wall next to the supplement cabinet. The grocery lists help me stay on track when I’m at the store. 

Really Craig – ALL of it is helping me stay on track. So many good articles to reference when I get a chance. 

I’m wondering about the desiccated thyroid- I am feeling high energy on that- I think I’ve taken it the last week in the morning 30 min or so after taking the magnesium and other awake supplements. Or could it be the Umiboshi from you?? Not sure but I’m feeling even better the last week.

Thank you, it’s making this hard journey somewhat focused and planned out for the best results. I feel like I’m somewhat in control of my recovery and ultimate quality of life. I got my inversion table out of storage and will set it up this weekend! Am considering another juicer…God bless your week.

Thanks again,

Eating habit changes?

I spit things out immediately if my body says no.

On this cleanse, I have not wanted to eat much, and notice I am really asking my body what do YOU  want.
I choose not to eat when my body is not asking for food.
Lately, I eat much less, and often eat only half of the portion I put out to eat.

I am quite clear I need water and often have to ask body: is this a water request?
It is quite clear that if I am able to get my proper water intake before eating
I desire less food.

I am very aware of requests of the rascals in my gut after eating who crave
sugar, and am thrilled to anticipate their departure via my cleanse and fast.
This  is a major incentive to change my food habits.
I am striving for a religious resistance to feeding them sugar –  (like I am feeding the devil 🙂

…to bless everything including my environment – being
aware that this is, indeed, a holy moment with me and myself.

I will make sure I make space in my day so I can chew my
food 25+ times to truly “nourish” myself with a portion of love thrown in.
The trick is to stay conscious. ( & not talking).

By doing some gentle stretches and movements just before eating,
I can slow my thoughts down and move more easily into
a moment of respect and gratitude to honor myself and my body.

If socializing w/folks, I can drink my fluids and eat later.

I am excited about being impeccable !

My goal is to walk hand-in-hand with my body – so aware of her serve to me,
that I can feel good in my whole being about our relationship and can send
her positive thoughts and hormones as she works non-stop to be a healthy
strong and truly blessed going-concern given to me as a gift and
NOT to be taken for granted.

no,  no, no feeling guilty if I slip, but get back on track each time making
a renewed commitment to myself and to my body.

I tell myself to be gentle with my learning curve.
I am thrilled to be waking up to real honest tips about healthy eating.

Having a true nutrition-expert advising me with such deep commitment
and concern is one of my gifts of this lifetime.
I would check in with him before any MD because of his outstanding
success record – even saving lives  (& even advising MDs).

Thank you Master Craig Lane.

From Anonymous Feb. 2023
All my symptoms that I had initially called you about have gone away. I feel back to my normal self in spite of still eating only plant based 😉
You had suggested taking HCL with my meals. It made such a huge difference. It is interesting to note that when I eat an 80/10/10 completely raw or high raw food style diet my digestion is amazing, I feel great, I have lots of energy, and I don’t need the HCL. I notice I still need the HCL when I eat cooked food during the day, but not in the evenings at dinner time.
The iridology exam you did was very informative and helpful. You mentioned there being a lack of oxygen so I started exercising again and doing the Wim Hof breathing exercises…should get back into doing Quantum Touch because that really makes you utilize a lot of oxygen. 

You had also pointed out that the lymph system was congested so I continued doing my body brushing along with hot/cold showers. I figured the exercise would help with that also. 

You had pointed out the inflammation in my digestion so I started taking Zach Bush’s Ion gut support to help seal the gut lining. Also, trying to stick to foods that decrease inflammation and promote detoxification.
Also, you had suggested that my acupuncturist pay attention to my kidney meridian. I had a session with him where he worked a bit with that meridian. I felt a huge shift after that.
