“A terrific documentary. Heather understood – what I have come to understand. By attending to health promoting behaviors, she set the stage for the cells to slowly repair and rebuild. We need to make the environment as good as we can for our cells, and allow the self correcting physiology of our cells begin the magic”

Terry Wahls MD., Professor of Medicine, Iowa University Author Best Seller, “The Wahls Protocol

“Inspiring and motivating! Whether trapped physically or mentally, Heathers ourney shows us that we have the power to change our mind, body and spirit. It inspired me! The gem of this film is that it can be anyone. You feel hope”

Lupe Padilla Mitchell, Quality of Life Coach

“After watching your film my mom has taken a proactive ap proach to letting herself take time off work, and off stress. She took 6 months off being a lawyer and may just stop working all together. She is currently vacationing around. Thanks so much for sharing the film with me – I think she knew what she had to do but felt burdened by her responsibilities and now she is rest ing up. Thanks again!”

“Wow, what a fantastic job you did! I must say I am impressed, but not surprised by all the awards you have received. Your work is superb. Aside from the content, the photography and story line were terrific. The content was inspiring and mirror what I have believed for a long time. Our bodies are designed to be healthy and given the proper nutrition and mindset we can be. The film has given me some fresh perspectives and direc tions to proceed. Thank you so much for producing this film. Any ideas you or Heather can share will be greatly appreciated. I wish I could get your film into the hands of everyone with MS. I believe it would give them hope and a direction in which to trav el. Keep up the great work “

“The Healing of Heather Garden was one of the most inspiring films I have ever seen. It was an honor to screen.”

Wes Benton, Producer,, Co founder Sun & Sand Festival, Producer & Owner Red Planet Entertainment

“The Healing of Heather Garden’ is really inspiring. It meets people at many different levels – nutrition, retraining the muscles by moving them in salt water, and my favorite – Belief. Of course they are all true. Nicely crafted! I really like it!!!”

Greg Marsh, BetterEyesighNow.org

“Your film is drawing out the arguments against adopting a tra ditional medical model of health, and ignoring the wider and al ternative models of health such as holistic well-being, self-effi cacy, self determinism, and psychology. I also believe that some of our current medical frameworks are too narrow and outdated.”

Emma Patricio, Meta Health University

“It was such an enlightening and uplifting story. Made us really, really think about the root of real medicine and what we put into our bodies.”

Kyle Sierens, Web Desinger & Catherine Paquin, Veterinarian

“The whole theatre sat in silence through the credits and after. I am still at a loss for words. These women chose a path against the flow and gained a healthy life. It is a moving documentary. Thank you is not enough, but words are all I have. Heather’s story has been a catalyst for healing since I heard of it while it was in production, six years ago. I will be sharing the documentary with as many people as I can”

Shawna Peters, Body Talk Practitioner, Killarney, Manitoba

“I was smiling and crying through the whole thing. So glad you told this story”

Susan Snead, Photographer, Massage Therapist, Astrologer

Karen Goddard, M.D., New Zeland

“After seeing the documentary about Heather’s healing, I wanted to reach out and say hi, and thank you. For years I have been afraid to share the reality of what my life has really looked like, afraid of being labelled, rejected, dismissed….under-estimated. I am just beginning this process of speaking out. Seeing your documentary has profoundly encouraged me. My story is oddly similar. I was diagnosed at 16 years old with relapsing-remitting MS. I too found my healing through alterna tive forms of wellness and lifestyle changes. I am 29 now and following my career as singer/ songwriter/ pianist and teacher.”

“The film is so good….even though I had seen it many times, when in the theatre and watching it in its final form, I was quite moved in some of those scenes. I really liked the way you end ed it, especially with the last frames on Heather…. what an uplift ing finish. Bravo!”

Susan Kelso, Actress and Writer

“Fascinating! A great documentary.”

Dave Barber, Winnipeg Film Group

Author and Environmental Activist, Guy Dauncey, British Columbia

“Amazing, inspiring and thought provoking. Heather’s story is one of unrelenting courage and sheer determination in the face of strong opposition and daunting physical challenges. I takes into account multiple and complex perspectives. I left the screening with hope for those who are challenged with MS and for those who search for alternative approaches to healing that which ails them.”

Sherrie Novak, Organizational Development Consultant

“Your documentary has been so inspirational. We have found ourselves on a new journey of surgery, treatment, support, faith, positive thinking, the whole nine yards. It doesn’t matter what the malady is, it’s the how you deal with it that mat ters, and that’s where you three amigos come in. Thanks to all three of you for sharing your story.”

Dj Lamb, Radio Announcer

“I thought the documentary was excellent. You took on a gigan tic task but did an incredible job conveying the determination and the hope… and the peace. For those who can make the in credible connection between body and mind and spirit, this is powerful stuff. Treating symptoms and ignoring causes and the ability of the body to heal itself are not doing us any favors.”

Mary Kalberg

“Congrats on a wonderful accomplishment. You kept everyone involved human, not “subjects”. You had lovely scene composi tion and time-flow, and to me, most importantly – you told a very complex and compelling story in a very simple and sympathetic manner without denigrating anyone in the process. You as sumed your audience would be intelligent, caring people and presented your documentary that way. Thank you. My only question would be “what’s next ?”

I just wanted to let you know that I read your script when I got here and have been thinking about it ever since. I think it’s won derful that you are telling this story and bringing hope to people
who have been told they were hopeless.”

Lindsay Johnston, Nutrition Consultant

“Thank you for this beautiful, moving and informative documen tary. A great job of letting Heather’s voice come through, using your own just in the places needed to create the bridge, or pro vide a piece of background. I am sure there are many other sto ries like this. We need to hear about these to understand what is truly possible – if we can find the determination and courage to make the difficult choices that support our own health. I am so
glad for Heather that she had that tenacity, in the face of her many daily challenges. Her example brings hope to the rest of us”

Chris Graham. Teacher

“The musical was chosen with a good taste. The guitar sounds address the mood very well. I was expecting to hear the score written by one composer. In this case I don’t thing it is impor tant because the point of your film is to tell this fantastic story and the music keeps the emotion and the mood. Congrats again with your beautiful film!”

Martin Ulikhanyan, Composer Armenian Symphony Orchestra www.martinulikhanyan.com

“Thank you for being our guest today. I think everything worked out very beautifully and we can now better appreciate your own struggles and process in getting this film produced. You expressed your thoughts very well. I get the sense of all those healers out there and that is so fasci nating, like two parallel realities. Your film was work of love. I think it is a flash point film.”

“Beautiful! You have done a great job!”

Brandon Ackerman, Filmmaker

“To my mind the film shows the medical industrial complex does not have all the answers. As far as Heather Garden was con cerned the treatment wasn’t improving things for her, may have even been destructive. A holistic lifestyle, does not necessarily mean any one type of lifestyle, but an understanding our your own lifestyle and what it is doing to you can help you with illnesses and cure things that would otherwise defeat medical science. She found a holistic comprehensive change in her life proceeded her miraculous re covery from something she was not going to overcome with regular treatment. Heather was a great subject for the film because not only did she not appear to come into it with any preconceived percep tions. She was confronting a crisis. And found a way. She is very personable, very likeable. It would be hard to pick a better sub ject.”

Victor Olson, Lawyer Merchant Law Group

“Congrats on a wonderful accomplishment. You kept all the people involved human, not “subjects”.

Sharon Grabowski

“What a great piece of work…congratulations to you! You did an excellent job of MC-ing and I thought your narration of the doc umentary was well done. It was great to see Heather in real life…I only wish I had a chance to ‘hug’ her. Quite the story. Thanks for taking all the time and work to share it.”

Bonnie Madowski

“I hope amongst the many feelings you experienced tonight are feelings of pride.. Pride in your work & in the many friends you have cultivated over the years. Congratulations again!”

Ellen Kruger

“I really enjoyed the film. You did a nice job of telling the story using very effective images but at the same time keeping it kind of a mystery. Excellent editing. I was impressed with your nar ration – your voice was informative, authoritative but at the same time kind and caring. Also you did great job facilitating discussion at the end of the program; you have a nice stage presence.”

Ralph Brown

“I thought you were an amazing MC/producer/public speaker/crowd handler. I have a mystery illness. Even though I have gone from full health a cane to a walker, my gp has told me that this is ANXIETY. I disagree. I want to see your film again and I want to contact a number of groups that on your behalf.”

“This documentary is very interesting to me. I found myself in a similar position almost 2 years ago. I was diagnosed with igan nephropathy. My doctors told me “there was no cure or remis sion,” and, that I would be on a dialysis machine followed by a transplant within 5-15 years. I did research, changed my life style, weaned myself off medication. After about 8 months of this I was told it was gone into remission. Since then I have so
much energy that I have taken up running and cycling as a sport. I am signed up for a marathon. I am looking for a triathlon to run sometime soon as well.”

Kenny Smith

“This documentary is the best I have ever seen about recovery.  Short and factual. It is so relevant and precise in it’s details and information. Heather is an amazing person, adorable and funny!  In short, this documentary simply gives me hope. I hope you are able to spread this very uplifting piece of information to the rest of the world.”
