A heartfelt "God bless you" to all the wonderful HA team. On the first day I couldn't imagine spending the next 3 weeks here – but – it was just lovely to be surrounded by so many nice people. It was so helpful! Thank you! Today I will be travelling back home to my loving family with great confidence and a new vitality – watchful – mindful – I will certainly look back on this time with great pleasure! BW Your woman of the woods! D.Dezember 2016
Dear Helmut, My wife and I have been here for 3 days of coaching and spent a few wonderful hours with you and your team, and I would like to thank you all for bringing my wife back to life again in such a wonderful way. I am extremely happy with the way you and your whole team have managed to set my dear wife M, who has suffered from MS for a long time (35 years), on a path which even made her forget her severe illness. Luckily, when checking the various centres (for reasons of fairness we have not included the names of the clinics approached. You can see them in our guest book at any time) I was able to speak to you a few times beforehand and you gave me some good and very helpful advice on the telephone even before I arrived. I am eternally grateful that I have been able to meet you, Helmut, and your team and can continue on the path with my M. I hope that you all, and particularly you dear Helmut, will be able to give many more people what you have given us. With warmest regards, G.October 2016
Dear Helmut, I had 2 failed attempts at alcohol withdrawal this year which did nothing for me, no wonder, I was given a few tablets for 10 days, was detoxified and that was it. I relapsed again shortly afterwards. Then I came to you. When I arrived here I was badly affected, no longer able to walk without crutches (MS). After 3 weeks of intensive therapy here with you I have now become a strong person again. I THANK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. P.S.: I have put the crutches in the cellar, I don't need them any more!

Dear Helmut, Peggy and Gaby, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the new tools that you have given me to help me continue on my journey. I now view my life from a completely new perspective and am embarking on the new path that you have shown me with great joy. I wish the team at Schmidbauer Health Academy all the very best from the bottom of my heart! J.September 2016
