The following story has been submitted originally by Julie Bunker to PV MIRROR, a local newspaper in English for North Americans and Europeans in Puerto Vallarta.

“If you are someone who’d like to cure what ails you, and possibly lose some weight during the process, this article is for you.  Frankly, I was to the point that I didn’t think I could get any relief, and then, at the advice of a friend, I went to the Holistic Bio Spa in Plaza Marina and met Zoli Hargitai.  Zoli, originally from Hungary, is a Holistic Naturopath who provides Alternative Medicine solutions.  He’s also just a very down to earth guy who is tremendously knowledgeable and passionate about his.

I had something that conventional medicine couldn’t fix for me – digestion problems.  You may know the feeling…..sudden diarrhea, severe bloating. I was putting off eating lunch at work as long as possible because eating would trigger it all.  After lunch, I’d find myself going for “walks” hoping to get some relief from the bloating.  I’d also have emergency  “false alarm” bathroom visits.  And once back at my desk, I’d find myself oh-so-uncomfortable all over again.  It got to the point where daily I had to just tough it out, looking forward to going home where I could relax and get some relief. (How’s this for honesty?)


Zoli, the Holistic Naturopath, and owner/founder of the Holistic Bio Spa became my big hope.  I learned that his passion is to empower others by giving them the tools and knowledge needed to feel great – all with a holistic approach.  Truly anything sounded good to me at this point, so I made an appointment, and the rest is history.  Through biofeedback, several detoxing treatments, and Nutritional Supplements taken daily at home, my body is back to its normal rhythm.  I feel 10 years younger, I have much more energy, no more bloating and I even dropped some pounds!


When Zoli recommended a regimen of various de-tox treatments, I said, “Hey Doc, but I eat healthy foods!  I’m sure I’m not storing a ton of toxins!”  Well, being the patient guy he is, he said I needed to also consider what I’m breathing into my body (nothing to do with a healthy diet).  I immediately thought of waiting in traffic behind those Vallarta buses with the thick, black exhaust.  Or what about pet dander, mold, mildew, dust mites, bacteria, secondhand smoke, paint and cleaning liquid fumes, etc…???   Eating right doesn’t get rid of that build up in your body.  But Zoli’s de-toxing does, and did.  Have you ever had an Ionic Foot Detox?  Or breathed in amino acids thru a nebulizer?  How about a Colonic Cleansing?  Or sitting in the infrared sauna made from toxin-free cedar wood and sweating it out?  Have you considered an Ozone Facial, or Liposuction without surgery, Acupuncture, or a Vitamin C IV?  Have you thought about the water you drink?  Would you benefit more from Alkaline water? (The answer is YES).


Believe me, there is much more to tell, but bottom line – my bloating is gone.  I eat when I want to and know that it will no longer lead to bloating.  I go out in public with confidence that I will be comfortable the entire time.   And beyond the bloating, Zoli also helped me with my hot flashes!  With the simple addition of a Nutritional Supplement that my body needed, they have disappeared.  (major miracle!)  And he recommended PRP for my knees – another miracle treatment!


So, whether you are a permanent resident here in Puerto Vallarta, or you come for a few glorious months during our high season, or even just 1 or 2 weeks at a time, I would strongly urge you to get yourself over to the Holistic Bio Spa in Marina Vallarta.  Have a glass of Kombucha tea.  Enjoy the ZEN peace of Zoli’s offices and treatment rooms. Tell him about your bloating, or that you’d like to quit smoking, or whatever ails you personally. Make an appointment for a Biofeedback session with Zoli.  Then once you’re on the road, hang on to your hat, and get ready for a wonderful ride back to health and living comfortably.  I got my life back into control – and so can you!”
