What Our Clients Say

Success Stories

I started the Advocare 80 day challenge in March 2018. I lost 10 pounds so far, but the best part at this point is the energy I have…I am working out 3x a week, which it has been years since I have had the energy to do anything. I get support from both Jeff and Dixie by video calls anytime I need some encouragement. It has been an awesome experience to do something good for my body. I am grateful to both Jeff and Dixie to be on this journey with me!

Spark has changed my life! For those that say, “sure it did”, I want to tell my story. I tried it at first because of the energy and mental focus. However, after a week I suddenly realized that my painful hand and foot cramps, which I had had for a few years, were not happening anymore! The doctors had been doing tests for various things, I was told to take magnesium and potassium. That helped slightly, but they continued to increase. Now I’m having no further problems, unless I forget to take Spark! That, and the energy increase, means that I will never stop using this product!

Dixie has a wealth of information and experience in the Healing Arts. Her easy going nature allowed me to relax and feel comfortable around her right away. She knows when to push and when to take a step back. She’s helped me to reach big and small goals and for that I’m forever grateful.
