The reason I am putting these reviews on my website is because I am very frustrated with Yelp. They have a filtering system that just doesn’t work and I can’t get it fixed. They hide reviews that they label “not currently recommended”. ALL of these reviews are by REAL and LEGIT guests that have come time and time again to the retreat and loved it. So, if you do go onto the actual Yelp site then please look for the small grey writing that says “not currently recommended”. Please read these reviews as guests are upset they are not being shown since they took the time to write them. Just so you know, the below reviews are the same ones…just letting you know for future reference. Thanks so much for your time! XOXO Jan.

I attended Jan’s detox fasting retreat in September and found it was a great experience. Jan Minter is extremely knowledgeable about the fasting and detoxification process and the retreat is staffed by total professionals, particularly Jennie and Rod. There were four or five people that were returnee’s so that speaks volumes about their experiences. It was helpful that the other attendees were all on the detox program and most everyone was friendly and supportive. It was good to get some reference points about the experience from those that had attended previously.
Not only did I drop significant weight (12 pounds!) through sped-up elimination but the cleanse reset my taste buds. The coffee I had at the Palm Springs airport on the way home was the most delicious coffee I’ve ever had! I felt light and was in an amazing mood for several days post-retreat. I would definitely plan for this retreat twice a year, availability and my schedule permitting. If you are considering a fasting / detox retreat you are likely to have a great experience at Jan’s.

I’m back from this incredible experience and I want to plan this as an annual event and bring my friends so they can experience the gift of Jan!! This was unlike any detox juice fasting retreat I’ve ever experienced before. Jan Minter was an amazing host. The last attempt I had at a cleanse is a joke compared to what Jan had in place for us. Every detail was explained, the welcome bag of goodies and schedule. I appreciated the group meetings where Jan shared her nutritional wisdom with us. The older I get, the more I realize the power of “learning by doing”. It’s one thing to read about detoxing in a book, but to get away from it all, relax by the palm trees in the mineral pools, take advantage of the spa treatments and colonics- the results were fantastic!! I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is serious about prioritizing health and nutrition.
Jan Minter is masterful at the detox fast . I had so many fears and questions about doing this: will i be starving?Will i be too week to do anything? Will I be able to do this and is it do it yourself?
The answer is you can do this. I was not hungry once in the entire week. I had good energy the entire time because it is not do it yourself. Jan is very directive, you have an exact schedule hour by hour of what you have to do . Follow her instructions and you are fine. She provides everything you need. Also being in a place with only people doing a fast I now realize is a must- thats why it work and there is no food around and no smell of food. That is the secret.
Don’t be afraid you will leave many pounds lighter and you will leave informed about your digestion , your eating habits and how to improve them, and about your nutritional options going forward.
This is definitely a life changing experience! Jan has really thought of everything! The included supplements and fresh veggie juice, colonics, detox treatments and mineral waters all work hand in hand. The classes were my favorite part. I learned a common sense approach to the “lifestyle change.” I lost 30lbs, parasites and my taste for unhealthy food!
San Francisco, CA
This was my first time doing a cleanse and I am so grateful I did it with Jan!!! I felt safe and comfortable throughout the whole process. Jan has created a wonderful program for this week of cleanse, and I really appreciated a structured schedule that we followed. I felt good physically and emotionally, and never felt hungry. Every hour I was drinking something to help detox all my built up toxins, whether it was detox drink, tea, electrolyte drink e.t.c. I learned about importance of enzymes, minerals and probiotics for my good healthy body. Jan has conducted classes every day where we would learn a great deal about our digestive system! It helps to understand what is going on inside and how to keep my gut healthy! After a week of fasting, I saw a huge change in how I felt! My mind was super clear, my body felt so much lighter and my energy skyrocketed! I am very grateful for Jan and her rejuvenation program, and recomend it to everyone who wants to get their life back or just feel good and happy! Thank You!
I completed Jan Minter’s detox program the 1st week of April, 2018. I have done detox fasts before, and I’d just like to say that Jan’s program is excellent! Jan’s quirky California-girl personality makes it very enjoyable all the way through. She is knowledgeable and helpful to everyone all of the time…….can’t beat that! The fact that the resort is ALL fasters really helps! I want to do it again……hopefully in the near future…….It is Definitely worth it!
Los Angeles, CA
This fast is one of the most amazing experiences I have ever tested myself to. This is the second fasts I have completed with Jan and each time I have learned different things. Jan’s compassion as a human being is close to altruistic. She is there for every one of her clients alleviating any questions concerns or issues going on throughout the experience. At the end of the fat, every one in our party is happy amazed and refreshed from the wonderful and valuable weeks worth of knowledge and health benefits redeemed. Not to mention the beautiful hot spring boutique resort hotel she choose is one of the calmest most peaceful environments to have this experience in. It is truly a blessing to see everyone go home feeling happy and healed! Thank you Jan. See you next year!
Dana Point, CA
I’ve been on two of Jan’s juice cleansing retreats and I’ll be going again! Everything about her cleanse was just what I was looking for…. After scrutinizing many detox/cleansing retreat websites over a period of a year, I felt like Jan’s came the closest to meeting my needs (location, philosophy on health and cleansing, and price). Especially when I read that she doesn’t serve ANY fruit juice. It may seem like a small thing, but for me it was crucial because I can easily go into major low blood sugar mode on an empty stomach. When I called her to ask a bunch of questions she was so easy to talk to and knowledgeable that I felt like I’d be in good hands (she has thorough knowledge and experience with detoxing the body). Arriving on the first day of my first cleanse was a little nerve-racking but I was immediately put to ease by Jan’s personality and the place I was staying. She provides the perfect environment to escape and collapse from all of the stresses of daily life (and then some!). When I went into my room there was a very pretty and well put together welcome bag which contained all of the supplements, health and cleansing information, and some other important necessities. Without going into every detail, the greatest thing I can say about Jan’s cleansing/fasting retreat is everything! The approach and system she uses makes the experience totally doable and I felt completely renewed and great afterwards; the other retreat cleansers/fasters have been really friendly (which I attribute to Jan b/c she makes everyone feel so comfortable); the intimate resort/spa that she uses is for cleansers only so you’re all in the same “camp” and are supportive of each other; the desert sunshine and heat, along with the onsite mineral pools are incredibly healing; and the available spa services (massage, facial, etc) are excellent! Cleansing in general is not the easiest thing to do and I’d never be able to do it at home b/c it would just be too stressful, but Jan’s knowledge and experience combined with her super loving, caring, and sparkling personality truly made me SO thankful that after all of the searching I did, I went with Jan!
South Pasadena, CA
I have completed Jan Minter’s detox, juice fast and cleanse retreat on multiple occasions. Each time benefited my health in many ways. Most recently, I completed the fast prior to knee replacement surgery. I feel it improved my recovery time and outcome.
The Lido Palms location with its pristine mineral water pools, secluded environment, and no other (non-fasting) guests allowed onsite facilitate an individual healing experience.
I just finished my first ever detox retreat program, and am so glad I chose “Rejuvenate with Jan”. I was a bit fearful of a lot of things, being it was first times for a lot of things, but all my fears were put to rest. Jan put together a very thorough easy to follow program. She truly cares about each individuals well being and goals. She brought the group together daily to educate and share their experiences. Jan is very well rounded with her knowledge, and she shared that knowledge. I love how she keeps control of the group, and made sure we were all very comfortable with all aspects of the group setting and our experience. It’s also great that everyone staying on site is participating in the program, so there was no outside distractions. I obtained a new focus and control of my health which I am forever grateful to Jan. Since I’ve returned home, I’ve definitely noticed that I lost a lot of inflammation, and cravings. I’ve always exercised, but never in my life has anything transformed me like this cleansed did (both physical and emotionally).
For the past year I’ve been on a downward spiral of the ugly signs of getting older. Having a physically demanding job, it was starting to take it’s toll, so I did some research on detox cleanses that I could benefit from. And this is THE ONE. Jan Minter is “the bomb”. She’s a walking encyclopedia of knowledge, and more importantly, she only wants the absolute best for YOU. And she encourages us to email or text any questions or concerns FOREVER. I feel so much better than before my week there. My middle-age doldrums have turned into a renewed zest for life….and my physical limits are a thing of the past.
If you are considering doing this retreat I am telling right now not to hesitate. I stepped out of my comfort zone and it was a game changer for me. I live better today because of it. Healthier. More informed. It is not an easy 5 days but it’s not that hard either if you do what jan says and prepare properly. Jan is an endless resource and will be your biggest advocate if you commit yourself to the process. She’s amazing. She’s smart. She’s practical, which I love. And she has designed a program that really works! Don’t wait – do it. I promise you will not regret taking this step. In fact, I can’t wait to go back for a third time ! Do it! Do it! Do it!
La Mesa, CA
I was trepidation about doing a fast. I’ve never gone a day in my life without eating and less I was very sick. I was invited by a close friend to join her on this journey. I was surprised and impressed by the support, experience, and knowledge of our guide: JAN. She really knows her stuff! With that said I felt that this experience was truly amazing. Not only the support from Jan but all the other professional’s she brought to support us with yoga and colonics.
In our group of Fasters, I met some wonderful people from all over the country and would highly recommend Jan’s rejuvenation program to anyone who is ready to push the reset button And improve all your bodily functions to help you move forward with a healthy lifestyle.
San Francisco, CA
To fast and cleanse with Jan is as good as it gets! This was my third cleanse in the last several years & I have to say that this was the most organized, community-oriented program that I’ve ever been a part of. Also, Jan made herself available to talk about anything, at all hours (night or day) that came up during the detoxing process (which more certainly is a big part of this process). After my five day-cleanse retreat, I feel absolutely refreshed, energized and ready to take on the world with my new attidude. Thank you Jan for such an invaluable expereince. I wil be back!
Fountain Valley, CA
I completed my first cleanse with Jan. It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again! One of the best things was the fact that the hotel we stayed in was EXCLUSIVE for our group. It is a small, quaint hotel. Very comfortable and the mineral pools were wonderful! The hotel staff is very friendly. Jan was a great facilitator for this intense experience. I feel it really put me on track with my goals for better health and wellness. I highly recommend this cleanse! Jan made it very easy and kept us on track. The colon therapist was also great – she is super friendly and easy to talk to.
Myself and my daughter attended Jan’s retreat last week and found Jan to be outgoing, warm, compassionate and with a wonderful sense of humour. The program was thorough and extremely well organized. Jan selected likeminded, warm independent contractors (Jenny, Colon Therapist and Anti, Transformational Breath work”) along with other service providers who all reflected Jan’s values and attributes.
The hotel staff were also friendly and very accommodating. The manager offered and took my daughter to shop for a few items.
Of course, the mineral pools were to “live for”. All three were set at different temperatures and added to the wonderful experience.
In conclusion, I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who wishes to “reset” their life.
Thank you, Jan, for all your hard work and dedication to making this such a rewarding experience.
This was the second time I have been to Rejuvenate with Jan Detox Retreat and I was just as happy as the first time. The mineral pools are amazing. I spent every second I could in the pools, sometimes waking up very early and going for a dip under the stars. Jan is amazing and her sense of humor can lighten any mood! She is passionate about the cleanse and goes above and beyond to make sure you get the absolute most out of the experience. On day one of the retreat, I looked around the room and could see the look of stressed tired individuals and by the fifth day, I noticed everyone literally looked rejuvenated. That includes myself. Life had me tired and when I looked in the mirror all I could see was someone who looked depressed, anxious and stressed. After the cleanse I have had a feeling of euphoria, my skin is shiny and my body feels good!! I have to mention also that during the colonics, the therapist showed me gallstone after gallstone that I was passing. I never imagined I would have gallstones and I’m so glad that they are out of my body before I ended up in the hospital for them!! I must mention also that my first preference was to have my own room but I signed up late and the only room left meant I had a roommate. It was meant to be because I made, what I’m sure of, a lifelong friend. I learned so much about myself on this retreat (mentally) and I left a better, more healthier person. I rarely leave reviews but this is such an amazing experience, everyone should get to experience this!

Rejuvenate with Jan Detox Cleansing Juice Fasting California Retreat was a life changing experience for me. Before I decided to go on this retreat with Jan Minter I was in a very low place in my life, suffering from depression and unfulfillment . I also endured a work related injury that had me bed ridden for a couple of months…I was on the brink of despair . I had limited funds available and the places I was researching were way out of my budget until I came across Rejuvenate with Jan. Not only was it affordable for a single room but I could save $500.00 by pairing up with a roommate which Jan screens and matches accordingly. After speaking with Jan briefly on the phone, before registering for the retreat, I felt extremely comfortable and at ease. The most wonderful part about Rejuvenate with Jan was that there are only fasters on site and absolutely no outside temptations. The Tempurpedic beds were so comfortable and the rooms were very clean and spacious. To top it off the hot natural mineral waters were amazing!! 2 outdoor pools and 1 indoor pool that were very soothing and relaxing. We had yoga daily that was a delightful release and enlightening for me. The on-site colonics was also a very beneficial part of the cleanse which I have never experienced before. Most importantly the connections and friendships that I have made will always be etched in my mind. I had a spiritual awakening in every aspect of my life and I’m a new woman today as a result of it! I am truly grateful to Jan Minter and my fellow fasters for an experience that will be embedded in my heart and memory forever.
After a very stressful year of work and life changes, I found myself in desperate need of a complete physical/mental/emotional reset. I found Jan’s detox program and signed up. Let me just say that it was everything I wanted, everything I needed, and more. Jan provided specific information about the pre-cleanse so that we could get our bodies ready for the detox. I followed the rules nearly to a T, though it was very difficult for my sugar/carb/junk food addicted self to get through the pre-cleanse.
I arrived to Lido Palms and found my a basic accommodation with everything I needed for the week: comfy robe, full kitchen for making teas and chopping lemons, tempur-pedic bed, DVD player, about 200 entertaining and informational DVDs to choose from, and more. The mineral pools and hot tubs were AMAZING! I took full use of the sauna daily.
As for Jan’s program, the retreat exceeded my expectations. It was a lot easier for me to be on the cleansing fast since only fasters were at the resort; there was no food in sight. Jan provided us with all of the supplements, teas, lemons, and things we needed for the detox. At first I thought I was going to be bored, but it was not the case. I did restorative yoga, sauna, mineral pools, daily colonics, read, watched movies, and got a massage, facial, and body wrap from the spa.
Jan’s classes were easy to follow and comprehend. She provided us with the information to understand what we were doing and why. She was very easy to talk with and I felt very comfortable asking her about some of my detox symptoms.
In the end, I lost 10 pounds of all the nasty stuff that had been building up in my system from years of overindulging in everything. I continue to feel fantastic and my entire self has been RESET.

An amazing experience! Everyone should do this juice fast / holistic detox / retreat. Jan is adorable and an expert in her field. I felt safe and in good hands. Plus, she was there with us the whole week, even overnight. We could go to her room with questions and concerns whenever we wanted. She held little classes every day that were packed with information. We had the whole hotel / spa to ourselves, so there were no temptations food-wise. The rooms were clean and comfy, the pool and hot tub were filled with wonderful natural mineral springs healing waters. I lost a lot of weight by the end of the week and continue to feel fantastic. It really can change your life! Highly recommend for newbie detoxers and seasoned fasters alike.
Los Angeles, CA
The term “life changing” is thrown around a lot these days….but I can confidently state that Jan’s retreat/detox truly is life changing. Jan is extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and health. She’s accessible 24 hours a day while you are on the program to answer questions as well as help you gain better understanding of how to achieve your personal goals. The Lido is very basic, nothing fancy, but the mineral pools are great. This is such a wonderful way to reset your body, drop a few pounds, clean out the old and begin to eat clean food and feel great. I’ve done three fasts with Jan. This last time I was recovering from an accident and surgery so I felt fatigued and sugar addicted…five days later i was down eight pounds, had tons of energy and learned how to get the best nutrition and energy. There are a lot of imitators…Jan is an original and she really cares about every single faster on her program. She keeps the tone light and friendly. This is a very special way to treat yourself. I can’t wait to go back!
San Francisco, CA
You should retreat with Jan!
I had the opportunity to spend a week with Jan and her program. I didn’t know what to expect and was hesitant to put my hard earned dollars, time off of work and trust in someone I searched out on the internet. I’m glad I did!! Jan has the most personal and diverse opportunity available and it’s affordable. I shared a room with a perfect stranger and it was awesome. Everyone is there for a multitude of reasons and I would recommend sharing a room even if you are a very to yourself private person. I can’t wait to go back and have never forgotten the things Jan taught me and the friends and experiences I got to share with the people there. I’m ready for a Jan reboot and will see you all in the Spring of 2018!!
Los Angeles, CA
This cleansing program is not only reasonably priced it is absolutely fantastic! I’ve done the cleanse several times over the past 8 years and, each time, I complete the program feeling renewed and with a greater zest for life. Despite the rigor of the cleanse, there are also spa facilities that make the process more enjoyable. And although losing weight was not my reason for going, I did lose 6 pounds! Last but not least, Jan is a very knowledgeable, caring, and committed to her clients! And her quirky sense of humor is a pleasant change to all the seriousness of my work life! I would highly recommend this cleansing program to anyone who is seeking a truly supportive approach to cleansing for either preventive purposes or to assist with a chronic health condition where a cleanse is considered beneficial. One also receives lots of useful information that can support a healthier nutritional lifestyle, when one returns home.
I recommend this retreat to anyone & everyone!
I just finished my 4th cleanse, and have even brought family members with me. It will literally transform your health. I cannot thank Jan enough for all her guidance and hard work.
Food is truly medicine & Superfood nutrition like wheatgrass & raw juices make all the difference.

If it’s the right time for you to get your health back on track or begin your journey into good health through a cleansing fast, you don’t need to enter the experience alone, fraught with the challenges of the world around you. Rather, you can engage the experience in a new way, with the constant support, gentle guidance, and daily classes on the process and the path to renewal provided by Jan at “Fasting with Jan” in Palm Desert. You’ll undertake the experience with a small group of others seeking renewal with whom you’ll bond in mutual support almost immediately and naturally. Surrendering to the challenging luxury of deep healing through a five day green juice fast with these people and in this environment is a great privilege, far more profound and transforming in many ways than a vacation traveling to a distant land. That is not to say that it was an easy journey for me, but no one but Jan, in her kindness, personal support, and humor, could have eased it better giving me and my fellow fasters the kind of deep comfort, knowledge, and structure needed to carry us through it.
Soaking in the mineral bath pools and having daily luxurious spa treatments given by caring people who share their understanding and secrets about how to regain and stay healthy certainly lifts you up. The daily removal of toxins through colonics administered by the truly kind and considerate colon therapist reinvigorates you and prepares you for the next stage. I had gotten far off the path of good health when I came to Jan and her staff, so it was very much that for me–layers of cleansing with their high and low points, something that I could never have undertaken alone.
Since the fast, I have remained free from my sugar addiction and have engaged and maintained a healthy and healing diet. Jan made this possible for me, and my regular, personal engagement with her throughout the process set it in motion. I am truly grateful to her and for the kind of support that she provides. She is genuinely caring and uplifting. Give yourself this renewal, if you can. You cannot image the kind of freedom and reinvigorating changes that follow.
Thank you for everything Jan.
I just finished my 2nd cleanse retreat with Jan and I have to say it was what I truly needed. Jan is an incredible person and instructor. You can tell she really cares about you while you are there. She’s funny and quirky but most of all she is knowledgeable and positive. She is always available if needed I was able to completely trust Jan and follow her instructions without worry.
Lido Palms- before my first retreat I researched a lot of different retreat options. The biggest reason I wanted to go to the Lido Palms was there was ONLY retreat participants. I know myself and I worried if I was fasting/juicing and I had to see someone eat, there would be a good chance I might loose my mind and hit someone over their head and steal there food!
So all tasters was a. If selling point. The resort itself was a diamond in the rough. Outside nothing big, inside was a comforting haven. The rooms are huge and very comforting. The Springs are incredible. The staff is very accommodating, professional and nice!
I hope to make this retreat with Jan a yearly self indulgence.
Meadow Vista, CA
Where do I start!?!? I knew deep down that I needed a reset. I needed to take care of my mind, body and soul. I did a LOT of research and decided to Reguvinate with Jan!!! Best. Decision. Ever! Because I took some time out for myself at Jan’s retreat, I am healthier, happier and more at peace. I learned so much about food and our bodies. Soaking in the mineral pools was bliss!! Jan is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun! She is onsite and always available. This was my first cleanse with Jan, but it won’t be my last!!! Woo hoo!!!
San Diego, CA
Jan is an amazing lady. She’s thoughtful, wise, knowledgeable, compassionate and above all she’s fun! I had a great time with her for the fast and feel amazing afterwards. I do feel revitalised and rejuvenated.People say I’m glowing which is nice for the ego. So many on the fast had come back over the years it was great to meet such amazing fellow fasting people.
As well as a well-organised fast, Jan has classes each day that talk about the food we eat and the stuff we put on our body which was useful all by itself.
Those long hot soaks in mineral baths and that precious time for me to catch up with myself & look after my body was priceless. I’d I give it 6 stars if I could.
San Diego, California
What an incredible week!! My daughter and I had never been to a cleanse before and really had no idea of how much detail and knowledge was about to be bestowed upon us…
You cannot imagine how much time, work and thought has gone into creating this extremely organized, detailed, and complete week. From start to finish this really is a complete program packed with years and years of expertise, all simplified for you into a very effective week of cleansing and treatments. Jan has thought of everything AND SHE LETS NO ONE FAIL!
All the details to the minutia are thought of and taken care of for you so that you have a result driven week that is amazingly relaxing and enjoyable.
It’s truly hard to believe, as I look back, this entire week is created and directed by Jan, who is there with you every step of the way. She is always available to you, accessible, totally knowledgable, caring, and thorough. She’s fun, entertaining, and always upbeat. We are looking forward to coming back!
I’d love to share some of the special little personal touches and amenities she provides….but I don’t want to spoil it for you!!
Midtown East, Manhattan
Wonderful retreat! I did not know what to expect since it was my 1st time here, but I am very satisfied with everything. I learned so much that I have been able to implement after the retreat. I feel more at peace, happier, positive as well as with more energy and have slimmed down 😀
Jan is always accessible before, during and after the retreat. I tried to fast for a day after the retreat but that proved hard. It was easier at the retreat because everyone who is there is also fasting, you get to relax and deal with your emotions without the hasle of every day life.
If possible I would definitely come back, its a necessary vacation that helps destress and gets you ready physically and emotionally for your regular activities, work and life 😀
Thank you Jan!!
The retreat was everything that Jan said it would be. She told me that the detox will not only impact me physically but also emotionally & mentally, it is absolutely true. I think it snuck up on me when I wasn’t expecting it because the first day I was absolutely fine. So I thought that maybe I would be someone who just breezes through this. Well starting the afternoon of day 2 and especially day 3, I realized I wasn’t. That’s where faith and Jan’s expertise comes in:)
I am so grateful to her for the gift that she provided to both myself and others.
If it wasn’t for Jan, I would continue through life without being able to be the person that I was meant to be. I have let life and work stress wear me down and as a result I have become someone I don’t want to be, not the person I was meant to be.
I feel 1000 times better than I did before. I lost 6 pounds and I also feel better. My taste buds have been reset. I gained a lot of knowledge about nutrition, myself & how I have been affected by poor choices.
I am forever grateful to Jan and the service that she provides so that others can benefit from her knowledge and experience.
Desert Hot Springs, CA
I have done two cleansing retreats with Jan. I was at her very first one ever and that was quite an amazing experience. It ranks up there looking back over my life as one of the most unusual and special things I have ever done. I didn’t eat for days, which I didn’t even know was possible. It is true that fasting and cleansing is a powerful way to remove emotional blocks. Some of the results, I honestly did not believe could happen.
I had emotional breakthroughs on cleanse #1 which I consider a turning point in my life.
Jan’s cleanse is remarkable. A testament to how great she is , is that each cleanse is always packed with return guests. That’s a good sign. Some people have done it yearly many many many times. Jan is lovely, and really cares about people. I am about to go for another cleanse, #3. I think it is safe to trust the glowing 5 star reviews on here.
Spent Apr 12-17, 2015 doing a cleanse with Jan M. and I am so pleased with my results. I arrived lethargic, craving carbs and generally feeling rundown and left 5 days later with lots of energy and a renewed commitment to making better dietary and lifestyle choices. I’m feeling really motivated to keep on track, in large part because of the support and encouragement I received from Jan – her positive attitude and sense of humour helped create an atmosphere where ‘change’ was not only possible, but fun. For the first time in a very long while, I feel I have both the knowledge and tools to make it happen for the long haul. That’s not to say I won’t be back! I’m looking forward to ‘tune-ups’ from time to time to keep reinforcing how important it is and how great it feels to put your health (and yourself – even for just 5 days at a time) first.
P.S. I read a review that suggested Jan should have herbal remedies available to address detox symptoms. I take several prescription meds and at least one of them can have dangerous interactions with certain herbs. I’m glad that Jan does NOT provide herbal remedies. It wouldn’t be safe for me and no doubt others could be in the same boat.
I went to the Rejuvenate with Jan Cleansing Fast retreat and meant to write as soon as I got home, however got busy. Life just takes over… I see there is a review with two stars. That’s crazy!! I read what she wrote and I can honestly say it just sounds like she didn’t like Jan’s style in the class or something. I was a first-timer and Jan definitely helped me all week with all kinds of things. She for sure helped with the detox symptoms and I saw her helping people all week with that. that is why she has a room on site and is with everyone all week. She has a complete open-door policy so if there is anything that isn’t clear, then you are free to just go to her and ask or talk about it. She is very approachable and if someone has something to say then just say it. As in tune as Jan is, she is not a mind reader. Some of the responsibility has to be on the guest too.
When she talks about other places she has worked, she doesn’t say anything negative only that she learned this and that and never mentions the name of any of the places. So unless somehow you know what place specifically she is referring to then there’s no way you would know. She also gets a lot of questions and keeps it fun and interactive during class so you don’t get bored to tears as it is sometimes hard to focus when going through a deep and intense detox. Jan takes the cleanse very seriously however doesn’t want to take herself too seriously. Humor is throughout the week and I feel that is very important. Everyone chose to be there and just needs to relax and follow her helpful suggestions No reason anyone has to reinvent the wheel when it’s all laid out very organized and very much thought out. You can tell Jan really cares about everyone individually and also thinks about how things are going for everyone as a group.
It was a wonderful experience and I felt great at the end of the week and was able to go home clear-headed with tons of energy and ready to take on my very busy life. I will be coming back again, hopefully every year. I rcommend this retreat to everyone including first timers and people who have done other cleanses/fasts. All are welcome by her. She is very careful with her prescreening too which made me feel confident that she just doesn’t take anyone and everyone just for the sake of a buck. It’s about truly helping people who want to be helped. Make sure to go in with an open-minded attitude. it’s important to have when you are doing a week of self-reflection, rejuvenating and harmony.
Thanks for everything Jan!!
Los Angeles, CA
I really just want to write my review, however it’s so hard not to comment on the one negative one. Talk about nitpicking….I mean seriously!? Anyone who is actually there at the cleanse/fast can see that Jan puts her heart and soul into it and to write something like this on social media is just cowardly. Why wasn’t something said during the week? Who does this? It is mean spirited and …..don’t even know what to say….
I will focus on the positive and write what I came here to write.
This was my first cleanse with Jan and it was awesome. I feel fantastic and learned so much during the week. The price is very affordable. If you want to share a room you can save lots of money. I shared a room for the week and it was great. My roommate was wonderful and considerate. We got along well. The rooms are very spacious with a full kitchen.
Jan tells you what you need to know each day. There is so much information that it needs to be doled out in a certain way for us to remember it all. Again, she is there for any and all questions. Even before I started the retreat I had many questions. She always got back to me in a timely fashion and was very complete in her answers. Then even when I went home I knew I could always contact her if I had questions.
I am happy to tell people that if you really want to jump start your life, your health, are at a crossroads, are not feeling healthy and happy, then please don’t lose hope as the answer is right here. Just go do a cleanse with Jan and have a healthy and happy new start to a new life. Sounds too simple? Well, it really is that simple.

I am really disappointed in YELP and how the system isn’t showing all the reviews for Jan’s cleanse. I wrote a review after finishing my first cleanse and it’s under the “not currently recommended” section along with other GREAT reviews. It makes me sad because anyone who is looking to attending Jan’s cleanse is missing out on the RAVE reviews. Shame on you YELP these reviews shouldn’t be hidden and you should fix them ASAP.
Now about the cleanse. If you are looking for a great program, are stuck in a rut, want to kick start your health, feel great, learn a lot about the body, food and and feel great GO to jan’s cleanse. Her passion for every faster is amazing. She truly cares for everyone and there health and happiness. I feel blessed to have attended her fasting retreat.
I’ve done Jan’s fast 5 times…I love to come every year, after I finish a long stint of work full of stress, too much eating, and too much drinking. Every time I do the fast I get something new and different out of my experience.
Since going I’ve been able to address problems with allergies, acne, blood sugar levels, weight gain, and this last retreat, the grief over the recent loss of a loved one.
The retreat stresses the mind and body connect by offering gentle Yoga, and Transformational Breathwork sessions which help release pent up emotions.
Jan is very experienced with helping fasters, it’s a very safe and supportive environment. In her, you’ll find a friend for life.

Jan’s program for Detox Fast and Cleanse helped me enormously. I lost twelve pounds in five days, and most importantly became more motivated to continue losing weight and improving my health. Jan has lots of valuable information about digestion, elimination, and practical steps and advice for achieving overall health.
I have traveled to Desert Hot Springs twice after difficult tours overseas, where the diet and lifestyle were not conducive to being healthy. With her friendly demeanor and gentle support, Jan creates an atmosphere of learning and health. I have done other cleanses and fasts, but find that the best results are always with Jan. The benefits of being on a true retreat – in a beautiful setting with great weather and a flexible schedule – cannot be overestimated. I’ve recommended Jan’s retreats to a few friends and absolutely recommend them for you too!
At the suggestion of a friend, I joined her at one of Jan’s cleanse about 4 years ago. I had no idea what to expect but after speaking with Jan on the phone, I was confident that it was going to be a good experience. Little did I know that I was about to change my life for the better.
I was someone that was way stressed, not eating right, and had a few toxic people in my life that were not doing me any good. To sum it up, I was sick and did not even know it from eating poorly and not getting enough rest. Was I scared when I found out that I was not going to be eating solid food for 5 days, absolutely! I was concerned because I was a carb addict and when my blood sugar went down, I turn into low-glycemic bi*@# and I was sharing a room with my poor friend who I wanted to keep as a friend long after the cleanse. Jan promised that I would not be hungry and everything would be ok.
Happy to say that I made it! Not only did I make it, I looked and felt fantastic. My mom commented when I returned that my skin had never looked better!
Jan is a fantastic and motivating facilitator! Her enthusiasm and willingness to help in any way she can is wonderful and makes it worth every penny.
I learned so much and continue to educate myself 4 years later. Jan has always answered my questions and is a wealth of knowledge. She truly believes in what she does and is personally vested in every one of her clients.
This past March, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy at the age of 41 without the use of IVF or non-natural methods. My doctor credits my good healthy eating and exercise was the main factor. I plan on doing another cleanse as soon as I finish nursing. Thanks, Jan!! Love you!!

I was at the same week with Crysta and Apryl and have to agree with Crysta. It was a great week! This was actually my fourth time attending the cleanse and every time I’m glad I went. Jan has a pure heart and clearly wants the best for everyone.
As a repeat faster I have heard all the lectures many times so I really do appreciate the fact that Jan allows room for spontaneity and for all of us to comment and chime in. Often the people attending have a great deal of experience or knowledge in their own right and Jan makes no pretense at having all the answers. I always learn something new, get to know my fellow fasters better and am also always confident that if I am really curious about something Jan will be available after the class to talk with me for as long, or little, as I desire. During this week Jan really puts her fasters first!
Fasting for five days can be a miserable and lonely experience. With Jan it isn’t! 🙂
This being my fourth time I’ve worked with almost all the therapists. Jenny, the colon therapist, is the only person I would allow to do a colonic on me! 😉 She is the best and don’t be scared if it is your first time. Lisa is a fantastic masseuse and took my migraines away!!! Eugenia is amazing but she was so booked up that I wasn’t able to get a facial with her. Be sure to budget some money for the treatments as they are so worthwhile!!
Oh, and if you are thinking about doing it for the first time please be assured that Jan really will hold your hand and make sure you are supported throughout. In fact, even though this was my fourth time I did have a few rough days. My husband wanted to make sure I mentioned how grateful he was that Jan kept checking in on me as he couldn’t come this time!
I just finished a five day fast and retreat with Jan. I loved the entire experience!! Jan is knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated. She is unapologetically herself – honest, vivacious and candid. She adds her personal touch to everything and the result is delightful. The products that Jan provides for the cleanse are excellent. Jan isn’t a big believer in a lot of supplements and while she provides helpful advice, she doesn’t push products at all which is nice. She also encourages natural approaches which I think is important (for instance, alkalizing water with lemon). For me, the cleanse was real and taught me how to approach my health at home, recognizing the imperfect environments we live in and the challenging situations we face by the minute. I also liked that the retreat wasn’t heavily structured and that I was ultimately responsible for my own experience. The resort itself was nice with very helpful staff. Jan was helpful from beginning to end, providing insight on the personalities of the therapists and referrals to great local and online resources. I had a great time and am excited to make this an annual tradition! I highly recommend Jan and the Rejuvenate With Jan cleanse and retreat!
San Pedro, CA
My wife and I went to the 7-day cleanse together with an open mind. my wife had allergies, migraines, and was feeling fatigue. popping pills for relief was common. right from the start JAN was attentive to questions and concerns we had. she was informative and comforting. we followed JAN’S plan, which she has a written daily check off sheet, and by the end of the cleanse we both benefited greatly. not only did my wife lose 9 pounds, I lost 13, we both felt rejuvenated and energized. yes, after a fast we felt energized! for almost 3 months my wife went without symptoms of allergies or migraines. we have been to JAN’S cleanse several times since then. I recommend this fast and cleanse to everyone.
My wife was suffering from migraines and allergies. Both, her and I, were feeling tired and worn… My wife was suffering from migraines and allergies. Both, her and I, were feeling tired and worn out. My wife’s massage therapist suggested a cleanse. I researched cleanses and I came across Jan’s cleanse. I spoke to Jan and gathered excellent information and needless to say, we both headed off to the cleanse. WOW…. not having high expectations and just going with the flow for my wife, I can say it changed my life. First of all, Jan chooses locations that allow you to escape from outside distractions and to concentrate on healing your body and mind. Second, from the minute you walk in the door, Jan is there for any of your needs or questions. She makes you feel at ease and confident that you will get through it all! It is a regiment that allows you to succeed and although it is a fasting retreat, you are given supplements, juices, and a special treat at night…. it will not be a” starvation vacation”. The colonics are mind blowing, just because of what your body has been holding on for years. Midway through the week I felt alert and energetic. After a week, I was so inspired to do better, to eat better, and had a positive state of mind. “No stinking thinking” are Jan’s words. Her helpful information is still stamped in my head… my first cleanse was 6 years ago! I highly recommend Jan’s cleanse to anyone wanting to invest in your long term well being.
Palm Springs, CA
Detox, Learn, Relax and Repeat! That’s what goes on at this retreat. I just completed the retreat, feeling better than I ever have in my life. Jan has a super reputation, so I decided to experience for myself. Besides losing toxic colon waste, I emerged with a greater love for myself and optimism about coping with grief, financial and personal challenges. It was perfect timing since my mom died a few weeks ago. I loved the fact that only fasters were on the property, so we never had to see or smell food. I wasn’t hungry at all, as Jan nourishes you constantly. There are also many healthy activities to keep you busy and keep your mind off of pizza, etc. She is onsite every step of the way, day and night and her door is always open. The management team at Lido Palms always made sure we were all comfortable. I am a lifelong foodie. However, now I know how to make the right healthy choices that make a difference. Out of everything I have done to lose weight,, what I learned there makes the most sense. There are wonderful spa treatments available in Lido’s onsite spa. Oh, and the mineral waters are a plus and available all day and nite. I know I will ‘repeat’ in about 6 months. This was my new start in life and just what I needed at this time.
My husband and I attended the fasting retreat at the Lido Palms Resort and Spa and found the experience comfortable and healing with the help of the responsive staff and soothing waters. Jan Minter’s diligence to what works and her years of both experience and study helped create very stable changes for me. I feel so good in my body and clearer in my own work. I am deeply grateful for this experience and have already signed up for next year.
Jan’s holistic detox fast is better than advertised! It is basically the best week of my year. Jan is knowledgeable, very attentive to everyone’s needs and is extremely experienced in all manner of fasting and healthy living. This is basically an investment in one’s future, and is much more than just a one-week fast. It’s a way to get rid of everything negative in one’s life and hit the “reset” button to one’s soul. The accommodations are superb, the mineral waters soothing and the entire week flies back way too fast. Highly recommend for anyone who feels a little “stuck” in their everyday lives. Can’t wait to go back.
Jan Minter’s holistic detox fasting retreats are one of the joys of the world, a total antidote to… Jan Minter’s holistic detox fasting retreats are one of the joys of the world, a total antidote to our fast-paced society. I have been to two, and they have been among the best two weeks of my life. Jan is a total pro who knows the concept of the detox fasting retreat inside and out. The fasts are done in a controlled environment, only with a dozen or so other fasters. Because the group is so small, Jan is able to personally
oversee every faster’s individual progress. In case anyone was wondering, you don’t go hungry. There is plenty of water (hot springs water!!), tea, juice and even a cup of soup most evenings. There are also very knowledgeable nutrition seminars most evenings chaired by Jan, who conveys her knowledge in a cordial, informative yet informal way. There is plenty of opportunity for light exercise, yoga, sunbathing and, of course, dips in Desert Hot Springs’ wonderfully pure water. I not only rid myself of toxins during the week, but made a few friendships, learned lessons I still carry over until today and generally just gained immense knowledge on how to eat properly and live a clean and active life. I cannot wait to return.
Wow talk about AMAZING!!! What an incredible REJUVENATION & DETOX week! Having had migraines all my
life & cluster headaches weekly taking all assorted meds to fix the problem instead of finding a solution. I finally decided to change my life & push the reset button. So I went on a healthy QUEST & started a nutritional regime & decided to book a week w Rejuvenate with Jan detox retreat. Jan is a beautiful spirit w a fun sense of humor & very caring. I didn’t expect was to feel so good & not have headaches during the detox (important to pre-cleanse). So not only did I feel great, but every day was busy..All the massage therapists were skilled! Learned valuable lessons in Jan’s nutrition classes. Met interesting people as well as made a few lifelong friends. It was ALL I hoped it could be & MORE. What a wonderful opportunity to get yourself HEALTHY!!! I left with a huge SMILE on my FACE & in my HEART!!! Thank you Jan for offering this wonderful Opportunity!
You are a BLESSING to the WORLD!!!

Rejuvenate with Jan was an enlightening experience and so overdue, after 21 years of
taking care of my family it was first time I took a trip all about me. Not only did I eradicate toxins in my body I cleaned my mind and spirit as well. The entire program is conducive to accomplish a total mind and body experience,. I learned allot about fitness and nutrition during my weight loss journey but I never knew about true digestion in stomach and colon and after seeing buildup of many years being released during the colon cleanse I was truly amazed . I feel amazing,just jump start I needed after holidays, everyone looked radiant by the end of week, I’ll be back in future because it was worth every penny, best money I ever spent 🙂 try it you’ll love it too..
My sister and I attended Rejuvenate with Jan in August of 2013. I had been trying to get my sister to join me for a cleanse for a couple of years and I’m so glad we chose “Rejuvenate with Jan”. What an awesome retreat! Jan is very knowledgeable about so many things and gave us a lot of good information to take home with us. She made our cleanse fun and relaxing and she is so caring with each and every one of her clients. I would definitely recommend her retreat.
I have been suffering with a immune disease for almost a year taking massive amounts of medications to kill the disease and supplements to replace what I was killing. For 9 months I was in bed with fatigue, joint pain, brain fog, blurred vision and about 3 pages of other symptoms that I won’t go into. I felt so toxic I decided I needed to clean out my body. I didn’t have a lot of time to take off and found Jan’s cleanse and signed up. Well, I had no idea how much I would benefit from this. Day 3 I called my husband at 6am SO excited, thinking clearly, in no pain, awake and feeling SO ALIVE I had to tell him his wife was back. I can’t thank Jan enough for what she does for her fasters. She is such a caring, loving, compassionate person I feel truly blessed to have her in my life and thankful for what she offers. This experience has changed my life. If you are in need of a jump start to wellness or even a change in your life I would recommend Jan’s program. Go in with no expectations and just walk through this journey. It’s amazing! Thank you Jan for everything!
My husband and I went to a retreat with Rejuvenate with Jan in July. It was a great experience. I have tried fasting before but never with this kind of success. The system that Jan follows is great and having all of the attendees at the retreat location limited to fasters really helps ease through the process. I give only the highest ratings to Jan, the colonic administrator, and the massage therapists. Serious about your health, cleanse your gut now!
If you want to really, I mean TRULY, do yourself a favor then sign up with Jan immediately. She will take top care of you while teaching you how to care for yourself. I have been 3 times now and know that a week with Jan alwaysputs me back on course to make my life better.
Simi Valley, CA
My sister was the first one to attend one of Jan’s retreats. Upon her recommendation my wife and I went together. Since then my wife has been back at least once and maybe twice? I’m not sure because there have been many times she would have liked to go and we couldn’t make it happen due to logistics so it has become blurred. In the meantime my mother-in-law is with Jan now!
I figured actions speak louder than words so thought it best to start with a description of our family’s actions. For what it is worth every time any of us have gone there is always people there that have been multiple times in the past. Jan truly runs a great retreat. She is
knowledgeable, caring and committed to each and every participant having the best experience possible. Over the years she has truly designed an excellent program. Me, my wife, and my extended family can all confidently recommend her!
If you have any questions about what the program actually entails her website is very informative and if you still have questions about specifics now that you know it is a quality program feel free to drop her a line and ask away. Jan is very approachable and worth speaking to!
My husband and I did a week long fast with Jan and it was truly a wonderful life changing experience for both of us. She is extremely knowledgeable and such a joy to be around. She has an incredible presence, very positive, confident and reassuring. She taught us so much, and helped us get through the fast. I was really nervous about it because my husband and I both suffer from hypoglycemia. But there was no need to worry because Jan took such great care of us, and we had no problems at all completing the week long fast. Probably the best money we have ever spent, because clearing our systems of those old toxins will add years of health to our lives. I would love to be able to fast for a week with Jan every year. It is probably the single best investment one could ever make in their health.
Grass Valley, CA
Fasting with Jan is one of my favorite things I can do for myself. I have done the week-long fast with her several times now. Fasting can be difficult for many reasons and Jan is there every step of the way to help and support the process. She educates and shares personal experiences in a way that allows me to feel safe and relax into the fast. I recommend her any chance I get!
I decided to go to Jan’s detox after having been through a serious operation and many different types of medications. I wanted to cleanse my body and mind, get back to feeling myself. WOW…this was exactly what I needed. I loved it SO much, that I returned the following year. It was rejuvenating, spiritually healing and best of all my body was free of toxins and I felt 10 years younger and 10 lbs lighter. It was amazing. I would highly recommend this experience. There was no pressure, no pain, just relaxation and renewal. Jan is awesome! She makes you feel like she’s been your personal friend and coach. She gets it. She doesn’t judge and she knows her stuff! I’m ready to go again!!! Thanks, Jan!! Lisa
I have one word to say about this cleanse with Jan, AMAZING!! I have tried many cleanses and this one was far the best. I knew going in i would get worse before getting better but thought i would give this one a try. I was real toxic (parasites, candida and digestive issuse) It was soo nice not to have to juice wheat grass and gag trying to get it down. Jan has a different approach and it just simply works better. She is pretty much there when you need her where the other cleanses if you were dying in your room they would never know. Her classes are wonderful and knowledgeable. I have gone a few years in a row now and look forward every year to cleanse and to see Jan. I also lose about 9lbs every time and glow when i leave. The first two days are like hell for me but by the third day im a happy camper, I go home a better wife and mother and feel fantastic. Believe it or not i even love the colonics!! I would recommend this cleanse to anyone and everyone who has low energy and feels toxic, it works..for real!!! Your not even hungry either when your fasting. Its awesome:-) Give Jan a call, you wont regret it!!
New York, NY
I have done fasting and detox programs in many places over a number of years. The program Jan leads is challenging physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. As a multiple year cleanse veteran, I can tell you Rejuvenate with Jan works.
And why? Jan herself!
She is pure love, her being inspires and motivates helping us move towards our potential in so many ways. REJUVENATE WITH JAN- make room for all the joy that the universe has to offer!
La Quinta, CA
Jan and I have worked together for five years. During this time our relationship has evolved into a deep friendship and enduring professional partnership.
I treasure and resonate with her personal and heartfelt approach to making her cleansing-detox retreats, a holistic and life-changing experience for the fasters. Her clients have shared with me, that the cleanse had a lasting effect on their lives. They feel more alive and full of energy, having shed pounds of toxic waste and unhealthy cravings. Mentally and emotionally they are able to relase stress, and negative thoughts and emotions. They also shared with me how important it is that the retreat is for fasters only, not having to deal with other guests who are eating or drinking. During the retreat I am impressed by Jan’s daily and ongoing support of all the fasters, making the process easy and accessible for everyone.
Trust her guidance and you will experience amazing results.
Asbury Park, NJ
For more than three decades I have lived my life focused on nutrition, holistic health, and alternative medicine
There is no doubt that “Rejuvenate With Jan” works. After 10 years, I remain an annual attendee of Jan’s program for several reasons, but two of the most important are Jan herself and the services and products she offers. Jan truly cares about her clients and each individual’s success while in her care and even after the cleanse.
Jan understands the challenges that new clients experience, and she is mindful of what return clients need. For someone like me – who has been to the program multiple times – Jan is able to offer new and different services to make the experience original each time. Her attention to detail and her ability to make fasting effortless is unmatched.
I have experienced many other cleanses known for high volume, high expense, and those that cater to celebrities. But, for me, there is simply no comparison to “Rejuvenate With Jan”. Jan’s program will change your life.
I attended the cleanse with Jan last year in Palm Springs, it was educational as well as effective. I spoke with Jan prior to attending and had a clear understanding as far as what to expect. It was a great experience, I would love to do this every year, I felt great afterwards and had energy I hadn’t had in many years. I will say that I do believe the best thing was getting rid of the heavy metals and toxins in my body. I would suggest to anyone attending to follow her advice and not eat any thing heavy 2 days prior to the cleanse, it does help. Be prepared that if you are a person who eats toxic foods, ie fast food, you will feel the toxins and chemicals working their way out. I would recommend for anyone to attend her cleanse, it was fun and casual, I met some great people and enjoyed the relaxing environment. I will see you again Jan!
Hello my name is Jim and I attended one of Jan’s cleanses a few years ago and had an incredable experience.Jan opened my eyes to a lot of things about my body that truely helped me.Not only does Jan cleanse your body but she takes a personal interest in your needs.She really CARES I would recomend Jan to anyone without hesatation.I plan on doing one of her clenses again this winter
Santa Monica, CA
Simply doesn’t get any better than Jan Minter for cleansing. It wasn’t just a cleanse it was a life-transforming event.
My husband likes to joke that he gave up eating, drinking and smoking on the same day! Four years on I am happy to say that we are both in the best of health and although my husband did resume eating after the cleanse he is still smoke and alcohol-free! Thank you Jan for your
life-transformation. Much love x
I participated in Jan’s detox cleanse in 2010, and felt so healthy and peaceful after. Jan has devised a program which is very effective, relaxing, and restorative.
The setting is comfortable with plenty of opportunity to rest, sunbathe, chat with other clients, and to heal. Mainstays of the cleanse are herbal teas, fresh green drinks, lots of pure water to drink and colon cleansing which provides such release. Massage, sauna sessions, and yoga are offered and I left feeling pampered and 20 years younger. My skin was clear, my mental state was calmer and I felt that I had energy to do anything! At 60 yrs old, that is a wonderful feeling!
Jan is very experienced in leading this process, and has years of background in the field. I would heartily recommend this cleanse to anyone!
Los Angeles, CA
I have done cleanses over the years…some on my own and some more formal. Jan puts her whole heart into her work. She has done so much research and knows so much. I left her retreat feeling squeeky clean and bright. I felt wonderful and she makes it very easy to continue taking better care of yourself. If you are thinking of doing something like this…Jan is your gal.
South Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV
After spending too many years behind a desk working 10-12 hours a day, my body was beaten down and tired. I would often fall asleep at my desk for hours at a time. At this point, I needed a major change so I attended a Detox Fast with Jan. I found the fast to be easier than expected and the time passed quickly as I enjoyed the hotel and the company and all I learned. I would highly recommend attending!
Los Angeles, CA
Jan’s program is incredible! She has developed an effective cleansing protocol that is rigorous, yet easy to follow. I have done the cleanse several times. Each time, I walk away feeling truly rejuvenated and alive. This is one of those health measures that should be done at least once a year. I just completed the cleansing program again after 3 years away. I will never do that again! I had forgotten the energy and zest for life I was missing, by not taking time to care for my body. Despite the rigor of the cleanse, there are spa facilities that make the process more enjoyable. And although losing weight was not my reason for going, I did lose 6 pounds! Last but not least, Jan is a very knowledgeable, caring, and committed to her clients! And her goofy humor is a pleasant change to all the seriousness of my work life!
