Testimonials & Praise

Everything came up to my expectations. I found the food content, service, exercise, meditation, health and healing content, meetings, overall presentation, all were excellent. I was looked after very well. The information on disease and how to prevent it and learning that raw vegetarian meals need not be boring was what I liked the most’.

Just to say thanks for making me welcome at the retreat last weekend. What a beautiful place.. and it was lovely to get to know yourself and Wayne. I gathered some good information and was wowed by your delicious raw food Krissy every day I am a foodie/cook and really appreciated all the love and thought gone into it all. Thankyou. Wayne, I got the stretchy bands out this morning and showed my exercise partner a few of your moves, also thanks for the lovely walks along the beach. After your retreat I’ve returned to practicing meditation thanks to Donna and Wayne re awakening my hunger for spirit…… thankyou. I wanted to go home the first few days as ‘that was’ my pattern (and something my parents did!!!) fright and flight so I’m glad I stayed and worked through it. It taught me a lesson that I can actually do that!! Stick around and things work out.. Haha, so easy when you know eh. Thanks to you all for your genuinely caring input.

‘Dear Krissy thank you so much for this amazing transforming retreat. The many aspects you cover in the retreat and with guest speakers provide a solid foundation for me to move forward and incorporate important changes in my life and my family to become and stay healthy. I am so thrilled and honoured to have met you all and receive this training and experience. The accommodation was so beautiful beside the beach. The food was so delicious and I love that it is so healthy. I loved our mornings at the beach with Wayne and the evening meditation and the band (tubing) work. Donna’s presentations on hypnotherapy and aromatherapy were very informative and delivered well. I am feeling very inspired and excited by the information. I am looking forward to hearing about and attending future retreats. Much love and gratitude to you all’

Kindest regards

Dear Krissy, thank you so much for such a fabulous experience this past weekend, and for the tireless work you are doing. I found the retreat to be everything and more than I expected. The food was absolutely out of this world, Krissy. You have an amazing gift to be able to create raw food that looks and is gourmet to the highest standards. I would love to see any chef around the world come up with any similar recipes and see how they manage. The venue was superb. I didn’t know that any place like that existed, especially on a small intimate scale, and which had everything one needs for your retreat. My quest today is to go and get the foods for our Candida program and rid the pantry of all the unwanted ingredients! Many thanks again for a fabulous weekend.

I have known Kristine since 2002, both professionally and personally. Kris is a lady who walks her talk. Over this time, she has helped countless people change their diet and lifestyle to become healthy and well. Kris’s main focus is in helping her clients overcome cancer and other chronic diseases through her raw food, meditation and fitness strategies. I have personally witnessed clients go from sick and depressed to well and happy by following her regimes. For anyone who is struggling with their health I highly recommend you contact Kristine.

Kristine Matheson was my mentor and trainer for a weight loss challenge I did for a significant time in 2010. Kristine far exceeded the call of duty in every way in mentoring and leading me and a number of others through this course.

She gave wholeheartedly of her time, experience, and money she could have been earning (as she charged nothing). It was all from her heart and her never- ending generosity.

My life was dramatically affected by the exercise and nutrition challenge I was on. I am on medication for a depressive illness and my medication is being redirected for the better as a result of knowing Krissy. Her story and life is inspirational.

Sarah King, Gold Coast, Queensland

I first met Kristine Matheson through a Health and Fitness program with a group that I attended for three months. I was extremely stressed, had very high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I previously had surgery for malignant breast cancer and also suffered a prolapsed disc in my lower back, which happened 14 years ago and prevented me from doing all forms of exercise. Of course, this resulted in my weight gain and made my conditions worse.

​Kristine was my mentor and my friend. She guided me, an unconfident sick woman, with nutritional advice and knowledge. She was loving and caring and was unconditionally there for me through my struggle to get well, as well as helping me to lose weight to improve my conditions. She spent hours giving me counselling and just talking. Because of Kris’s help I now have normal blood pressure, know how to manage my back and believe it or not I am walking, jogging, and exercising. WOW. I am more confident in myself and don’t have stress in my life.

Kris is a ‘woman of substance’ who never ever turns anyone down when they need to talk, or need counselling, or help and support with illnesses, particularly cancer. Her passion is helping anyone who needs her.

The last few years have been tough on Kris as she has had cancer herself. She cured herself of stage IV melanoma. She wrote her book From Cancer to Wellness. She has had to be there for her parents who were extremely ill. Unfortunately, her Dad passed away in December 2009, but while going through all this, she never turned anyone away who needed her. She is a bright light and a shining star, an angel. She deserves recognition. Her dedication will never stop. Thank you, Kris. You have given my life back to me.

Joy Clarke, Gold Coast, Queensland

Hi Kristine and congratulations! I wanted to say well done! Also I wanted to tell you I have done the things you mentioned on your web page and no longer have multiple sclerosis lesions on my brain. Well done on getting your message out there! God bless!

Danelle Filby

I have known Kristine Matheson for approximately 28 years, both as a trusted friend and a business associate.

I first met Kris and husband Wayne through the building industry. Wayne was a very dedicated builder and Kristine a very artistic and dedicated interior designer. Kris is also a very talented artist. Kris left no stone unturned and close enough wasn’t good enough, everything had to be perfect and so it was. They both won awards for their expertise and dedication to the building industry.

Kris was always studying natural therapies and always willing to help others in need. I was struggling with menopause severely and Kristine put me on the right track and fortunately surgery was avoided.

When their lives took another turn and Kris was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma, Kris took on the battle of her life. She is the most inspirational woman I have ever met and her compassion for others and her professional optimism never ceases to amaze me. She is a true blessing to everyone who has the good fortune to meet her.

Kris’s book From Cancer to Wellness is wonderful and I like to call it my ‘Bible to good health’. Whenever I speak to Kris I feel uplifted and I truly hope her hard work and compassion is rewarded.

I was in Australia fundraising for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre and someone gave me a book to read called From Cancer to Wellness: the forgotten secrets. I couldn’t put it down. It was written by Kristine Matheson. I was so impressed with her book and her thoughts on raw food that I immediately asked her to contribute some of her recipes to Livwise.

Olivia Newton-John, singer, actress, author of Livwise Cookbook

“I believe Kristine’s program should be compulsory for all beings on this planet. This is how we all should be living if we are to raise ourselves to a higher level of conscious awareness. It has a focus on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane and puts us back into the driver’s seat of our own quality of life. A must for all”.

Michele Jones-Wilkinson author “Live your best life”

Kristine Matheson, I couldn’t let today pass without giving my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to everyone that has made such a difference in my life these past five years. The universe blessed me with good fortune when it directed me to your book. I picked it up, and it’s the only one that resonated with me and ‘felt right’ in my gut. It wasn’t until I got home that I discovered you were a melanoma survivor and Gold Coast based too! Your bible gave me the hope and confidence I needed to keep moving forward each day.

Joel Grace, Sunshine Colonics, Sunshine Coast, Queensland

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your wonderful book. It was my Mum’s Bible during her bowel cancer healing back in 2013 and it was also my Bible during my own uterine cancer journey 2016 to 2017. Thank you, thank you for the supplement section which I found especially useful. I am cancer free, and so is my Mum. I have your book and I have recommended it to so many people. Much love and light to you — big hugs.
