We have received countless thank you's over the years, including these words:
"John has been a blessing in my life. I trust his wisdom with as much confidence as I have for nature’s simple and benevolent harmonics.
He has been my primary source in eliciting a healing for my condition for the past seven years. When I think about my original prognosis of being told I had, at best, a year and a half to live, unless I followed through with conventional therapies, I feel I owe John a great debt of heartfelt appreciation for all his time and wise counseling.
It is easy to see that he understands how the right foods are imbued with natures spirit,and how that vital force can bring about a healing when used in the right context. The type of healing that John subscribes to influences the whole being, as he starts by understanding that a person’s general health must be restored before any real healing can be affected and improved upon. His method is to help his patients with finding and maintaining their vital flow of energy which leads to bringing about peace and joy and even allowing for love to rise, as one realizes that he genuinely cares.
I want to give recognition to John for his care in guiding me to finding my wholeness again, and also for his generosity in seeing me through some rather lean times. He has guided and supported me through these seven years like a friend, and it seems to me he has a gift of connecting to a person’s essence, their soul, as an individual, in order to relieve symptoms and restore the person to wellness. Always, at the end of a counseling session with John, I feel that my own prognosis is bright with hope, and that in itself has extraordinary healing powers."

"Hi John; your analysis and guidance was what I am looking for. Parkinson Disease silently creeps up on you; it's symptoms are progressive. Although I am attempting alternative techniques I was progressively losing hope. My usual tools were not winning the "progressive" slow motion race. You have given me new arrows for my quiver." ~ D.R.
"Yesterday, I found out that I am B-12 deficient. I have spent the last 5 months eating sardines & herring, 2 X a week, in addition to the 1/2 pound of fresh fish that I have weekly. John Kozinski prompted me to get more B12. He had suggested that I supplement. I did not want to, I wanted to do it w/diet. I had to tell my primary care that I wanted the test for B12 as well as for Vit. D. When you tell a doctor that you are a vegan, you would think he might suggest a B12 test. How about Vit D, when he tells you after the fact that 45% of the population is deficient. I have subsequently read 57% and also 75%. You have to be your own health advocate everywhere. I was never worried about B12 as my son told me one never needed that much, so I thought my 1/2 pound of fish a week was enough. So much for doctors. Just wanted to give you a heads up on the diet and tell you that you are right on."

"John & Jeanette: Just wanted to give the update that my mom has lost 50 pounds since her consultation with you guys. She is very proud and wanted me to let you guys know. I sense that some parts have been a struggle and she's given herself many exception moments but for the most part the staff has been on board with the general approach and guidelines and it's made a difference. Thank you guys so much for all that you do." ~ A.C. 9/23/12
"I am an RN, live on an organic farm, and lead a Tai Chi class once a week. My life was not always so simple. For a long time I struggled with low energy and stress related to poor diet and life circumstances. When I had a gallbladder attack and the doctors wanted me to have a cholecystectomy, I called John Kozinski and asked him if I could help myself through this crisis without an operation. Sometimes there are ways around health problems. He helped me to avoid surgery. When I went through Menopause and experienced heavy bleeding episodes, I called. Yes, he could help me. John Kozinski is a good counselor for the Macrobiotic way of life because he practices what he preaches. He is a good person because he is not trying to sell anything, only help you feel better. In these days of Medical overhaul and poor diet, we need a change. John is positive, caring, and wise. He will help you over the rough spots of ill health by making you look at your decisions, your choices, and what will make you feel vibrantly alive and well. Who could ask for anything more."

P.S. You could add anemia to your list of diverse ailments that you have helped with, because you surely helped me over mine. Thanks...again

"Thank you John and Jeanette!"
One never knows who one is,
one never knows what treasure
one is carrying within oneself.
One never knows that
one is the bearer
that one has an inner kingdom.
Compared to it all –
outer kingdoms are just stupid.
Even to win a single inch
of the inner territory
is far more valuable
than to become Alexander the Great,
because all that is won on the outside
will be taken away by death.
You will go empty-handed-
but that which is won inside
nobody can take, not even death.
Let this be the definition of real treasure:
That which cannot be taken away
by death is the real treasure,
and the person is blessed who has it!
He has something of eternity.
