David - Oakville, ON
"Marcilee works in the Health Food store on Speers Road. One day I decided to maybe try this store to see whether it could assist me. I am 60 years old, and honestly, feeling some days like I struggle with my energy. I will not take medications. I have been successful so far in maintaining my medication free status. As it pertains to vitamins, I am certainly leery about the marketing by the various producers. They promise you this new youth, or "whatever"...................... and I am not buying it. I met Marcilee and she recommended vitamin products that she thought would assist me with my energy levels. I thought this one time, let's take a chance. I saw almost immediate results. Thank you Marcilee for advancing my quality of life, it is an exciting development, and I will look to youfor further advice."

Marcilee, I came into the store over the summer about my daughter having a yeast infection. Thank you so much for your help. Your advice was incredible and she is doing well!.... I will always enlist your help and advice! Thank you again.
