hey, fair enough. i hear you all and ive read the articles.
my husband always calls it a cult just to mess with me. people always knock down stuff like this. its okay. everyone is entitled to their opinion. at the moment i dont care what it is, i just care that overnight i am suddenly in full blown remission. like i never had it.
they talk about that stuff in there and they also have lots of positive articles written by medical and scientific experts.
i am not spending any more money with them. i thought $575 was super expensive until i did it and now i would pay 3 times that.
i didnt go to cure UC and they didnt claim they could help that. that was just "my" outcome. everyone gets something different out of it.
also, i am in NO way affiliated at all with these people. i just did the forum on the recommendation from my business coach. and i thought it was great. they dont contact me or anything.
This is what someone said who went to the forum (from one of the links posted above): "they make you sit there for 3 hours and tell you that if you need to go to the bathroom it is because you have no ability to manage yourself..." Scary.
well, they just dont want you to miss anything since they teach a whole heap of stuff in just 3 days. i told them my situation about UC and they gave me a reserved seat sign to sit by the door near the toilets. so i had no problems.
how much money you're giving to this multi-million dollar PRIVATE organization. In my mind, anyone doing good things for people should be spreading the money around and be a non-profit.
okay, first off, i disagree. i am a business owner and if i had good info and education to give people why shouldnt i be able to make money doing it. i dont care if they make billions of dollars. they have a good education to give people and i havent yet met anyone who regretted spending the money. if you want to go then go. if you dont, then dont. easy.
i thought it was worth every penny. i want my family to go, but they dont want to so i dont bug them.
i never claimed that it could cure anyone's uc... i just said what i got out of it and wanted to share in case it helps anyone else.
i do not personnally think that it is snake oil or a scam. you might get something else out of it. it is like life education i guess you can say.
it works with any person in any culture in any religion with any beliefs. it doesnt even go there with any of that stuff. very neutral in that regard.
i would love to explain more about it, but its hard to explain exactly.
sherman tank.. you've been.. can you explain it?
also, blesssteve... they have no idea about any of the 250 people that attend each forum so they dont take advantage of anyone. they dont advertise either. you either go or you dont. and once your there, you can leave if you want. or you can listen and learn.
i didnt experience or see anything dodgey or suspect at all.
in fact, to even go you have to sign a waver saying that you are NOT mentally weak or have any mental issues. they warn against anyone with mental problems attending.
anyhoo, i gotta go to bed.
if anyone has any more questions.. .i hope i can answer them
