“Lidija has extensive knowledge about naturopathic medicine and remedies that can ease symptoms. Her strong biblical basis are instrumental for a believers improvement both physically and spiritually. She helped me completely wean off Rx drugs for depression and insomnia which I was on for 3 years; which other practitioners were unwilling to help me with, let alone work with me. She created customized healing protocols and solutions based on my ongoing condition. In addition, she was readily available in answering any questions I had and was a HUGE support system during my healing process.” – Jason S.
“I have had the privilege to work with Lidija Atlas for the past 3 1/2 months and I am off to a monumental start healing my body on multiple levels. I know that this is just the beginning of a complete healing transformation and am thrilled with my results so far. This transformative process is truly a work in progress as she guides me back to optimal health. We are reversing negative health issues and balancing out pesky issues I’ve been experiencing for years. I look forward to following up with another updated testimonial as I continue to heal and make progress with my overall health. I am grateful and cannot begin to thank Lidija Atlas for her guidance, skill and care.” Thank you! – Beverly C.
“Having worked with Dr. Atlas for over a year I have to say that I hardly recognize myself! I am still a work in progress as I’ve had a lifetime of issues to correct but am in the perfect hands to address these concerns. Some of them were clearly obvious to me but Dr. Atlas brought in a unique perspective that reminded me that it took me a lifetime to accumulate these issues and to give my body time to heal. She often says, “even if I don’t see a change immediately that doesn’t mean it’s not happening!” She was right of course because here I am in the process of a transformation and am stunned to recognize my energy coming back, my hair growing back, my thyroid issues have calmed down with the possibility of coming off of prescribed medication in the coming months and my level of overall wellness is getting better and better. I remain grateful and blessed to be under Dr. Atlas’ care. I Thank you!” – Beverly C.
“Lidija Atlas’ knowledge about how the body works and healthcare in general is helping me to address current health issues. I’ve been able to maintain my focus and decrease my anxiety and fears including negative thoughts. The protocol allows me to function more normally. I’m still a work in progress and continue to take the protocol she has designed for me. I am grateful and realize that if she can help me then I can do whatever I want to do in life. Thank you, Lidija!” – Patrice
“Working with Lidija was transformational. I am a highly trained athlete and this summer my body broke down and my body blew up. My measurement around my belly button was 38 inches and I was so stiff and inflamed I clutched the banister to go up and down stairs. I signed up for Level 1 and filled my body with love using Lidija’s easy techniques. Belly button shrunk to 34 and I could go up and down the stairs. I signed up for Advanced Level 2 and am a whole new person! I have filled up with love and squished out toxins and limiting beliefs and old patterns. Belly button is now happy at 31 inches. The biggest transformation was truly loving my inner child and being at peace with who I am which makes me glow and smile. I did not change what I ate or drank by taking anything away! I added a few supplements that I got from Amazon or the grocery store. I love my body! Thank you!” – Annie B.
“Lidija has been so great. She has taught me so many new things about health and the body. I have been eating better, I have lost over 50 pounds and even though I deal with mental illness, her advice has helped me with that as well. I would recommend Lidija to anyone looking to better their health, spirituality, and yes, even mental state. I just want to thank you Lidija for everything you taught me, I will keep on practicing the methods you introduced me to. Thank you again”. – Josh W.
“I have been struggling with my body weight for the last 3 years after going through menopause and gaining weight, especially through my middle and in my breasts. Lidija really helped me develop a better relationship with food by teaching me to truly love my food and transform it with positive energy. That alone felt so good for someone who has struggled with almost feeling shame for eating because my weight had ballooned so much over a short period of time. Lidija taught me new techniques to shield and protect myself which was super helpful for not only weight loss but for life in general as a highly sensitive person. One of the highlights were the group quantum healings, they were so powerful it was truly incredible. I started to see results almost immediately in my feelings toward food and in the peacefulness and love of the healing sessions. I would recommend Lidija’s work to others wholeheartedly. As Lidija is very knowledgeable, patient, and gifted. There were no questions that she wasn’t able to answer, and she was excellent about recapping and reviewing to aid with retention of all of the actions I needed to implement into my daily life. I just wanted to say thank you for this opportunity to work with you Lidija and thank you so much for your time”. – Karen V.
“I was very happy with Lidija’s coaching program. I am a highly sensitive empath that takes on the energy of everyone and everything and have worked with many different coaches over the last number of years. Lidija has a different approach to resolving issues that made a lot of sense to me and I feel will be very helpful with continued use. I would definitely recommend Lidija’s program to others and look forward to doing more work with her”. – Lois
“I have had problems losing excess weight for the past 15 years. I have walked alot since April but have not seen many changes in my weight or my body, even though I gained muscles and better strength, but I continued to be bloated most of the time and the weight didn’t come off. I also had a bad self-image and had a hard time liking my body. I have been over-weight most of my life, but I managed to lose 10 kg last year but then I was always stuck going up or down 2 kg all the time, no matter what I did to lose weight. I felt sad and like a failure with negative self-talk. After these 4 weeks with Lidija’s program I feel a deep love for my body, and I see changes in the constitution of my body. I walked a lot before this program, and I continued with the same walks as before BUT not as often. The feelings and the appreciation for my body is huge and I have done all the exercises in the program every day. It has been a wonderful 4 weeks and I will continue with them in the future too. I have lost 3 kg in four weeks without doing anything different with my diet and I just continued with less waking than before so I could evaluate the program. I lost 1 cm around my waist, but it is melting away from the top where I didn’t take a measurement and the lower part is being lifted in a way I can’t describe, the changes are many. My ribcage has decreased with 2 cm, and my calves have lost 1 cm each. My ankles have lost 2 cm each BUT the biggest change during these 4 weeks are my thighs have lost 23 cm each and they are completely changed. This is a HUGE WIN for me, and I know the rest of my body will shape up as well. My body needs more time to make the total shift. I’m so grateful for being part of this program and Lidija is a great healer! I recommend you work with her if you want to change your body image and your body’s shape. The techniques taught take some time to do but are easy and rewarding when I both see and feel the changes. It is a good way to prioritize yourself! – Susann A. (Sweden)
“Lidija’s weight loss program was just what I needed! The simple techniques shared were very effective. My self-love went from average to amazing. Now, I’m totally in love with All of me. The food I consume is now blessed and energized specifically for me. It’s like eating happiness. Ahh! I was seeing results the first week on the program. I’ve lost 5 pounds… all while enjoying the process (21 days). My stress level has been lowered significantly. I’m so appreciative! I would definitely encourage others to work with Lidija. Thank you!!” – N.
“The biggest change that I have experienced over the last 4 weeks has been in my relationship to food. I no longer comfort eat and am therefore eating less. I also express love to my food and drink before ingesting it and that changes my whole perspective – there are no more thoughts about not eating something because it is not good for me. I am now eating everything without any guilt and not having any negative effects such as bloating anymore. The short and quick techniques that Lidija has taught me to put into practice are so easy and take no time so have become a habit – this for me is the biggest win because time is precious! As a result of working with Lidija, my mindset has shifted in subtle and positive ways and the infinity dance is starting to kick in now with its positive effects – I can feel my core tightening. I highly recommend this program even if you think you know how to do everything and have tried other methods. Lidija makes it all so easy!” – V. (U.K.)
“I highly recommend Lidija’s coaching. Her approach is very loving and she is an excellent mentor. Before the coaching I really did not like my body, especially the boobs and belly part. With the help of Lidija’s teachings I finally started to appreciate my body and in week four my boobs and belly were not prominent in my awareness, and I feel comfortable being a female. I did not take measurements, but it feels like my body is starting to change, I am not at war with my body anymore. Thank you Lidija! I am very grateful for you and your teachings.” – Jane K.
“Thank you for the opportunity to join the weight-loss coaching sessions. I decided to join because of persistent weight and bloating around the belly since giving birth. I have also felt rather conscious of the extra weight around my belly, especially after hearing comments of looking like I’m pregnant again. The biggest benefit of this weight program for me has been feeling happier and freer in my body. I am not so overly concerned about how my belly looks anymore and I do not stress about having to look a certain way. I do feel something has shifted energetically, especially with releasing trapped emotions even though I have not yet seen any difference in the actual weight. I will continue to use the methods Lidija taught because I feel like they are beneficial for having a healthier relationship with my own body and the food I eat. I would recommend Lidija’s work for anyone looking for help with self-care and building a healthier relationship with one’s body. Thank you.” – Kirsi V.S.
“Thank you very much for the opportunity to be part of this program. After the first week’s session, I really felt less conscious about how bulging my tummy is. It is the part of my physical body that I am kind of embarrassed as it is really protruding though not flabby. The embarrassment was transformed into self-love for my body. After the 2nd week’s session, I was surprised because my weight was down to 72 kgs from 74. I haven’t taken any measurements on my belly as there was no available tape measure in a nearby supermarket or other stores. I was also hesitant to go the mall because of the heightened restrictions in Manila due to the pandemic. So amazed with the results from the 1st and 2nd week.” – Joe P.G. (Phillipines)
“Firstly, thank you Lidija for your time and dedication; I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. I was drawn to work with this healer due to my weight and stress increasing over the last year. I had put on 8 kg, and it seemed to be related more to my stress and hormones rather than changes in my diet or physical activity as these hadn’t changed. After the second and third session with Lidija I found I had so much anger and rage to the point I didn’t want to be around people, I was annoyed with everyone and was struggling with being around ignorant individuals but when this passed, I found an internal calm and peace I hadn’t felt for some time, and our last session I just felt amazingly relaxed. This calm relaxed energy has stayed with me this last week to the point even at work I am not stressing as I would usually to get my work done and I am actually leaving on time. The positives I have noticed is my energy in this last week has started to improve I seem to wake clearer and seem less drained. As an empath I seem to be able to work without becoming so drained afterwards. Another interesting thing this week is after 6 months of not having my monthly period I started my period this week and it feels like my body is cleansing and although my weight has not released on the scales someone today did say to me I looked like I had lost weight so that is a positive and I am hopeful over the next few weeks/months the weight will release and I will be able to stabilize at my healthy weight without sabotaging myself as I have done in the past when I have reduced my weight. I feel grateful for all your help and feel my stress levels have reduced a lot and I feel I am no longer taking on other people’s stress or fear regarding this pandemic and instead I am able to keep calm. If anyone feels as I did, the simple tools Lidija teaches can make profound differences in everyday life.” – Rebecca J.
“First, I would like to thank Lidija for the amazing quantum healings and group sessions. I’ve been struggling with my weight and when I first started the sessions, I was at 215 and this morning I weighed myself and I’m at 209. So excited for this!!! My clothes are fitting me better!!! I’m also using a small pretty china plate and at first, I thought I wasn’t going to get full and now I’m amazed at how quickly I’m getting full. I also changed my coffee cup to a small cup and there are days that I don’t need coffee but when I do, I just have a cup and that’s all I need. I’ve been saying I love you to all my foods and drinks and my stomach feels better. I am also using the tent love protection and my energy is better. So grateful for you Lidija!!! I would highly recommend her! Plus, this is so easy to do and no stress to release weight. Thank you so much!!!” – Beronica M.
“From the moment I signed up, my appetite changed. I was less hungry, but I also was no longer needing to fight with myself to eat healthier things. Cravings for stereotypical junk food stopped, and it was very easy to just not eat those things. I am more connected to my body and can feel cravings for actual nourishment, tasty and nourishing dishes. My body became more toned without effort. Swelling in my legs reduced. We learned simple yet powerful techniques to boost our weight loss efforts. For 2 years, I have been consistently 156 lbs, wanting to lose 10 lbs, and despite everything I tried, there were no results. Within 3 weeks, I went from 156 lbs to 152 lbs, which is a very big deal for me. I am looking forward to continuing the techniques learned and working again with Lidija.*I am writing back because there have been additional developments in the last week. To give you some background information, my mother has had serious issues with weight her whole life and this mine. She weighs approximately 350lbs right now and is about 5 2” and has been trying various medical weight loss programs due to heart issues and lymphedema, with no results, partly because of her own thought processes and difficulties with consuming sweets. Mental blocks and behaviors were blocking her. Since I joined your program, she has had an increase interest in her own health, counting her steps, trying new foods (which is unheard of). Because I was drinking the tincture, she has decided to do it as well. In this last week, she has lost 5 lbs, which is a massive shift, because in the last 3 years she has been gaining weight. She is also more and more interested in her results. I never told her I was registered or participating, but since participating in your program, I have noticed a major shift for her as well. All this to say, the healing was multi-generational!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” – Chantale J.L.
“After a devastating breakup that came on the back of losing a job I wanted, a friend’s cancer returning, having to move during the middle of the pandemic, and busting my knee badly in a hiking fall which kept me from my workouts (which had been my only release and peace), I was emotionally and physically drained. I gained 25 pounds, fell into a depression over all the losses and stress, and I felt horrible about myself and my body. This year, I had been making more efforts to eat right, get back to working out, and dealing with – rather than denying, everything that had occurred. But still, I was having issues with exercising hard but not seeing any results and that was discouraging. When this program came up, I felt maybe it was a chance for me to discover something new that would help me to get past some of the issues. I did not expect to find what I did. From the first meeting, Lidija’s no nonsense approach was both eye opening and very easy to comprehend. Each week, her insights dealt deeper into us searching ourselves while offering completely doable, practical things we could incorporate into our lives. Each ended with quantum healing that looked to our core being rather than simply what we saw on the outside. From day one until the last meeting, I saw in myself a shift from feeling rejected, afraid, unworthy to a final feeling of peace, acceptance, and appreciation. Everything I learned are things I can continue with moving forward and intend to. She gave us the ability to be proactive in our own lives and it was probably the most profound shift I’ve had in viewing myself and my body in a very long time. The information, actions, and healing she provided was the shift I needed to see that I will succeed, I am succeeding, and that I can love myself in the process. I didn’t realize how much of my “feeling stuck” had more to do with how I FELT about myself rather than about what I was demanding my body to do while not respecting it. I am very grateful for Lidija and her program. I highly recommend it if you are ready to be proactive in your own life.” – Spring L.
“I was very interest in Lidija’s program as a psychological approach to weight loss appealed to me. I found Lidija’s sessions to be insightful, clear, and definitely helpful. I feel what I have learned is an ongoing energetic program in weight management which I will continue practicing as my bodily system sorts itself out. What I didn’t expect was relief from indigestion and the full feeling in the stomach. That was gone completely from Day 1!” – Leanne W.
“I was prompted to work with Lidija because I’d put on a lot of weight after my second pregnancy and for the first time in my life, I was very conscious of my weight and how much I missed my pre pregnancy body. I’d been feeling like this the past few months since I’d had my baby. Lidija’s work has been nothing short of amazing! It’s not a quick fix diet plan but a real way to look at ourselves, our habits, and our food! Her energy work was fantastic, her calls and processes brought so many aha moments and what she brought to us all were new and fresh ideas! Lidija is fantastic in how she has guided us on this journey of wellness! What surprised me was not so much a change in my weight but how I’d lost some weight on my stomach! That really surprised me because although I was following all the processes Lidija had given I still probably could have been more careful with what I ate! So, it surprised me that I’d achieved that from the energetic work and exercises alone! The great thing about Lidija and her work is that it’s not hard work! It’s easy to follow simple steps to wellness! Thank you Lidija for your wonderful insights and easy to follow routines! Lidija’s work is wonderful for those who want to go on a journey and truly understand themselves and their food!” – Narinder K.
“Of the over $15,000 I’ve spent on different programs, the Jump Into Your Ideal Weight-Loss Journey in 21 Days without dieting, pills, and the gym! with Lidija Atlas has given me the most results and is my most favorite. Not only have I lost a half pant size so that my clothes fit better, I have less body pain and fatigue and more appreciation and love for me and my body. I thought I was already doing the best possible things for my food and my body and was surprised to get better results from implementing Lidija’s easy-to-do quick daily activities which I plan on continuing because I love my body and my life so much more with these new habits included. Lidija’s presentation style is passionate, easy to understand, and sets the tone for a fun-filled healing group. She interacted with each group member with respect, appreciation, and support while demonstrating how to implement each new activity for us to do daily. Each zoom call is completed with a Quantum Healing Session to clear out negative emotions stored in our bodies. I loved the Quantum Healing Sessions and found that my love and other positive emotions upgraded as well. I found the sessions to be pleasant, subtle, and gentle while giving powerful results. I love that my 1/2 pant size release and other results came from not just receiving these powerful healing sessions but also from my own taking actions daily with these new empowering simple-to-do activities Lidija recommends. My caloric intake did not decrease, and my caloric expenditure did not increase but yet my weight, health, body size and shape improved; we were awakening to who we are and all the lies we were told especially about our health. My mother was a nutritionist and health instructor and I have spent my entire life eating the highest quality cleanest nutrition-dense foods available to me while also upgrading their benefits by setting them on orgone plates, in pyramid fields, using reiki and other such energy streams, fields, clearing statements and downloading commands. I was so surprised, delightfully so, to find that speaking “I love you” to everything before I eat or drink it upgrades it even more so creating amazing results in my body and energy fields; this speaks to the power of the spoken word, the power of Love, and the power of who we are as incarnated beings. I think Lidija said during one of our amazing zooms that our group’s mantra is “I love you.” I whole-heartedly recommend Lidija Atlas and this Jump Into Your Ideal Weight-Loss Journey in 21 Days without dieting, pills, and the gym! not just to those who would like to release weight or reduce their body size and/or shape, but also for anyone who would love to have more love for their bodies, themselves, and their lives.” – Melinda
“Losing weight is never a fun task. Then in came Lidija with a process that I had never experienced before and tools that I have not used before in shedding weight and inches. What a difference it has made. Not having food restrictions released a lot of the stress. However, learning to bless and thank your body parts for what they provide really was a game changer for me. Blessing my food in a new way, changed the taste of it. Spiritual practices that we did on a daily basis and her healing modality that she shared worked on my emotional triggers and released them. I shed inches and some weight and gained a whole new respect for my body. Lidija’s 21 Day program really works not just on your body but your mind and spirit also.Thank you Lidija!” – Doreene H.
“Thanks for putting together such a thoughtful program that offered so many commonsense tips and at the same time promising significant results. Since starting your program one month ago, my body does not need as much food so eating much less and not snacking at all. My clothes are fitting me better and I have lost 2 inches around my waist…. the great news is that I have not changed what I eat, and I am not doing any consistent exercising. The rigid diets and exercising have not worked for me and so grateful to have a deceptively easy program be the key to my weight loss journey.” – Florence A.
“I very much enjoyed the weekly calls and looked forward to each call. Lidija is a pleasure to listen to it. The calls were not too long and included a quantum healing for us. Each week I learned fun hacks to help me. It was not too complicated or too difficult but manageable and easily incorporated in my daily routine.” -Alexis“At the beginning of the year, I made a resolution that I had never made before, I was going to lose weight and I was going to keep it off. My previous attempts at weight loss had been really frustrating because all my approaches had failed. It seemed that I kept on making the same mistakes over and over again. That was the point when I said, I need to recruit professional help. And I made the decision to hire a health coach: L.T. Millonig Atlas, a health and wellness specialist, with the degrees and specializations, basically all the necessary knowledge, that would back up the advice she would give me. As a start we worked together for six months. After just the initial consultation, mind you, these were probing questions, I realized that my health coach was already teaching me introspection and how to uncover some of my previous mistakes that I had been doing for years. I finally had found the support I needed. Sometimes, a person just cannot lose weight ‘by themselves’. Her holistic game plan and ATLAS method, now eight months in, is helping me to achieve my goals. Finally, a slimmer and much healthier me.”- Pete M.
“I’ve been working with Lidija Atlas for several years now and have her contact info listed under favorites. With any emotional, energetic, dietary, or physical challenge I come across, I contact her immediately and she always leaves me feeling hopeful and busy with clear action steps that need to be taken. She is great at holding me accountable, and she never ceases to impress me with her innate wisdom in healing and wellness. I have changed for the better over these past years, and my blood pressure, cholesterol, mental outlook and health are better than they were years ago!” – Ivana B.
“In this day and age, it is almost impossible to survive intact, the obstacles of mainstream medicine, when you are at your weakest – being unwell. Mind you, I have even been up against those closest to me ‘pushing’ for an ‘irreversible medical procedure’. That is why my health and wellness practitioner and coach, L.M. Atlas, is on ‘my team’. Just in the last 8 months, she has helped me navigate through the death of a family member; the effects of a panic attack; as well as stomach, gall bladder and thyroid issues (these came with pain, nausea, chronic vomiting, and some serious weight loss, just to name a few symptoms). At my highest stress level, I was able to avoid a visit to the ER (and possibly an insurer that doesn’t pay). And the biggest blessing to me: no long-term medical side-effects and debt. My short term goal now is to manage my existing issues through a holistic approach, including changing my diet and healthstyle. My ultimate goal is to get back to feeling youthful. If one rejects surgery or the long term use of medications, one falls into an empty void of ‘illness self management’. That is a scary place to be. Hence, my deepest gratitude to my health mentor, L.T.M. Atlas, who has helped me to replace fear with hope and discouragement with confidence to ‘trust my body’ with her ongoing support specific to my needs.” – Jane M.
“The first time I went to L.T.M. Atlas was to get her input on my chronic headaches and neck pain, in addition to high levels of stress and anxiety, among other ongoing health issues. I wanted to try the holistic approach because nothing else seemed to be working for me, and I felt like I tried it all. I received her name through the recommendation of a friend, and I am so glad I took a chance and tried something new. L.T.M. Atlas is the most caring, patient, and knowledgeable practitioner I know when it comes to natural health. She has a very impressive background, is highly educated, and demonstrates a clear appreciation for the pursuit of health and wellness, in addition to extensive experience in holistic health and alternative medicine. She is a true healer and it shows. It is clearly a passion of hers to help her clients become healthier than ever before, in as little time as possible, with an all-natural approach. She seems to have an innate gift and ability to coach and mentor others as they seek to optimize their health, and every time we have a coaching session I learn something new. She has a great way of explaining health issues and potential solutions that make a complicated field much easier to understand, especially when you don’t know where to start or are new to holistic healing. I found the coaching experience to be very thorough, all encompassing, encouraging, and highly rewarding. While reaching optimal health and wellness is always a work in progress, after working with her for the past year, I am very pleased with my results thus far. I haven’t felt this good in years and look forward to continuing as a client of hers as I attempt to address other health challenges. I would highly recommend her holistic health coaching services on your journey towards optimal health. ” –Matthew A.
“Ever since I have known L.T.M. Atlas, my life has turned into a different direction. Her holistic medicine practice has helped me and my family tremendously. She has been practicing healing not only of my body, but my mind and spirit. This combination of it all has made me achieve a complete balance in my life. She treated my anxiety by making me believe in my innate healing powers. Every time there has been a health issue, I have been mentored by her as a person, not as a symptom or disease. Following her guidance with a natural healing approach, my husband got rid of severe allergies. Last, but not least, we were having conception problems, and L.T.M. Atlas taught us how a healthy and stress-free diet can bring a child into this world. Now we are enjoying our perfectly healthy baby boy and still referring to her excellent expertise in need. I can recommend Alma Holistic Health 100 percent and will always be grateful to L.T.M. Atlas. Her endless efforts and continuous devotion have improved the well-being of my entire family.” – Mila R.
“Whenever I have a concern, medical question, or need advice about carrying out a healthier lifestyle I go to L.M. Atlas. She is unique because she does not simply go by the textbook, she listens to everything I say. She looks at me holistically, truly taking the time to give me recommendations based on my own individual needs. L.M. Atlas is filled with knowledge, but she looks at people case by case with the goal of helping others to help themselves through natural health. When we are healthy, we are happier and L.M. Atlas has helped me to understand the intertwining of mind, body, and soul. She helped me to fall in love with nutrition and health all over again. Once I started going to L.M. Atlas, I never looked back!” – Molly Y.
“L.M. Atlas has helped me through many ailments – from ankle sprains and hormonal imbalances to seasonal allergies. She is dedicated to the health of her clients and really does listen. I feel like my questions and concerns are always heard and addressed and I never feel hurried. In fact, sometimes after a virtual session I will get a follow-up call to see how I’m doing and suggest addition alternative treatments that she looked into after our initial session. Her knowledge of naturopathy and homeopathic remedies is extensive, and I would rather have a conversation with her about certain remedies than Googling them myself. It’s hard to find an honest and effective holistic health practitioner, but L.M.Atlas really is a trustworthy practitioner. I would definitely recommend to go and see her, especially if you’re more inclined to treat yourself naturally or even if other doctors failed to or misdiagnosed your condition.” – Lucy M.
