Below are the common questions we receive about the program. Queries range from joining Cura and whether it is right for you, to health concerns, what you’ll eat and drink on the program and the results you can expect.
There are two Cura programs (each with two options: 24 or 45 days) – THE JOURNEY PROGRAM and THE INNER CIRCLE PROGRAM. The program you choose depends on whether you decide to work with Aaron personally. Whether you choose the 24 or 45-day option depends on how much weight you want to lose.
THE JOURNEY PROGRAM offers an intensive, step-by-step guided weight loss program with daily video and audio guidance. You will get 2 manuals, your Essential Sprays, and a wealth of online resources – including recipes, a powerful help section and inspiration.
THE INNER CIRCLE PROGRAM has all of the above, but is also tailored to you personally. Aaron receives each of your daily reports personally. She responds to your reports via personalised voicemail. She not only answers questions, but deals with any concerns you may have along the way. Monitoring your progress carefully, she tailors your program to fit with your body’s individual needs and your own personal goals.
Once you sign up, you will have access to your first manual and your Preparation section that will help you get ready for your program while your wait for your Essential Sprays to arrive in the post. You will also receive a welcome email. The ‘Welcome to the Cura Program’ email guides you through the first steps you need to get started on the program.
You can start the program whenever you are ready, there is no hurry. Once you are ready there is a section called "Start". First of all, you will find a check list to make sure you have all the things you need before you begin your program. You can tick each item off as you need to. Once all the items are ticked then you can trigger the start of your program.
Yes, you can upgrade your program. However it is best that you try to decide which program is right for you before you begin. If you do wish to upgrade your program from the Journey Program to the Inner Circle Program you may do so providing you have not yet started your program.
If you would like to upgrade your program from the 24 day to the 45 day you may do so before day 15 of the Essential Spray + Food Plan, as we will need to send you the additional Essential Sprays you will need to complete the 45 day program. However, because this upgrade is time sensitive it may incur an increased shipping cost, as we will have to send you additional Essential Sprays by Courier to make sure you can stay on your program without interruption.
Unfortunately, we are unable to downgrade your program.
Here is a list of the things you will need to gather before starting your Cura program:
It would be natural for you to feel a little hungry before lunch and dinner, although some people report days when they do not even experience this. Everyone is different. About 60% of people report little or no significant hunger right from the very first day. Others report feeling low to moderate levels of hunger off and on for the first few days as the body shifts its functioning. However, it is extremely rare for anyone to experience strong hunger during the protocol.
It is easy for someone who knows nothing about the protocol to be worried about you embarking on it. Show them this website. Let them read how the protocol works. Point them towards participant's reports about the medical, emotional, spiritual changes they have experienced on the program, as well as the exceptional weight loss. This can help them understand the nature of the program, how health-enhancing it can be, and how successful is has been for so very many. Tell them that you want their love and support. Of course, ultimately you are the one responsible for what you choose to do for your health and your life. Honor your own decision.
It's often best to say nothing. If you tell them you are on a "diet" they are going to ask things like "what do you eat for breakfast?" Wait until you are well into the program, and your body and face are so transformed that people start to remark on it. Then you can refer them to the Cura Romana website or your Cura Romana Journey if they are genuinely interested. Otherwise thank them and reply, "Yes I've been feeling very well lately."
No, it is not. Cura Romana can only do its work if you are willing to work with it to make sure that you follow the protocol exactly right through the program. It is the partnership that is formed between you and the program that makes permanent weight loss happen.
Yes, it works superbly well. We work with men all over the world with fabulous results. They lose weight much faster than women do.
This is an effective protocol for anyone over 18 years of age who carries body-distorting abnormal fat deposits. Even if you need to shed only 10 or 15 pounds you can use Cura Romana to reshape your body and enhance your health.
Provided they are over 18, yes. The program is not designed for anyone under the age of 18. They can do the program so long as they are genuinely motivated to do so. You must never try to press the program on anyone who is not absolutely committed to joining Cura Romana. That would be an infringement of their personal freedom to choose. It could also encourage them to fail.
Yes. Simeons found it impossible to deal with vegetarians on Cura Romana, but happily things have changed a lot in the last 50 years. We have worked with many vegetarians and find that they do well on Cura Romana. We now have foods-such as micro-filtered whey - which Simeons could not have dreamed of. If, even as a vegetarian, you are able to include fish and/or shellfish in your menus, this is ideal. It gives a lot of variety and fish is an excellent source of easily digested top-quality protein.
If you are on any prescription medication, it is important that you let your doctor or health professional know that you intend to join Cura Romana. He or she will need to check whether the dosage of any medication you are on needs to be adjusted as you progress on your Cura Romana Program. So improved are many people's health parameters that doctors frequently want to reduce the dosage of medications they had been prescribing.
If you suffer from gout, gallstones, diabetes, or have recently been treated for a coronary occlusion, it is essential your doctor monitors progress while you are on the program. These conditions are not contraindications for Cura Romana, but in such cases the protocol needs to be carried out under the watchful eye of a wise health professional.
The good news is that these minor ailments tend to be less virulent while on Cura Romana. Our way of dealing with them is to increase the frequency of the vitamin C you are taking as part of your program from once a day to three times a day until two days after all symptoms have cleared. Most importantly, get some extra rest and take Epsom salts baths.
No. Weight loss on Cura Romana does not depend on exercise. It takes place because of shifts in metabolic functions whether or not you exercise.
Yes. It is important that you consult with your doctor or health care practitioner before discontinuing any medication. That being said, if you are on medication for diabetes, depression, cholesterol, high blood pressure etc, it is essential that your health care professional monitors the changes in the medical parameters on which the dosages of your drugs have been based. The improvements in these areas that take place on Cura Romana can happen rapidly. Your doctor will not want you to be taking more of any medication than you need.
The Essential Spray vibrational essence used in Cura Romana is a safe and very stable compound. People who have used both the Essential Spray and injectable hCG report that there is no difference between them in terms of the weight loss. The advantages of the Essential Spray are many. They include not having to have injections and being able to carry your Essential Spray around with you so that you can use it four times a day, even if you are out and about. Perhaps the most interesting and valuable advantage of all is that the Essential Spray brings a tremendous sense of lightness and transformation to people mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Many tell us that it not only helps reshape their bodies, it reshapes their whole lives. Again and again we hear that they have never felt as well physically or as good about themselves as after Cura Romana.
Not when it is used correctly. As far as the Essential Spray vibrational essence is concerned, there have been no complications reported by anyone using it.
Use QV Lotion-the very best in the world while on Essential Spray + Food Plan-or baby oil, simple mineral oil or liquid paraffin. These contain no animal or vegetable fats. You can also get yourself some plain Aloe Vera gel (make sure there are no oils mixed with it). You want the kind that can be taken orally. Put it in a spray bottle and spritz your skin with it. Use petroleum jelly for dry lips. Be patient. My own legs felt like alligator skin for the first week or so whilst on the protocol. That is how I discovered QV Lotion. I ordered some, but by the time it arrived my skin had become as smooth as a child's thanks to the way my body had readjusted during the program. QV also do an excellent bath oil and a QV cream, both of which work beautifully on the Essential Spray + Food Plan part of the program. Once you enter Consolidation you can go back to using whatever you like.
On Cura Romana abnormal fat deposits diminish. The program does not deplete structural and essential tissue necessary to maintain healthy body function, as do many ordinary weight loss diets. The body rejuvenates itself both inside and out, giving people on the program a fresh, glowing appearance. Skin becomes more toned through the process.
Simeons says, "Those not uncommon patients who feel that even so little food is too much for them, can omit anything they wish." That being said, it is my experience that it is important for everyone to eat their protein foods and green vegetables twice a day. Weight loss is better when you do. You can eliminate the grissini with no problem. And, if you are genuinely not hungry and feeling well, you can certainly skip the odd meal if you like. What you must not ever do is stop eating for a couple of days or more in the belief that this will help you lose weight faster. It won't. That could actually slow your weight loss and make you unwell.
No. If you know your body does not handle wheat or other cereals and grains well you should avoid them altogether. You do not have to replace them with anything-just leave them out. For people who respond poorly to starchy foods or gluten, breadsticks can trigger cravings and slow weight loss. For those I mentor personally on the Inner Circle program, I take everyone off grissini during the second week.
Simeons allowed his patients to drink as much coffee as they wanted. But that was more than 50 years ago before insulin resistance, leptin resistance and food intolerance burgeoned to epidemic proportions as a result of all the grain-based carbs, sugars, junk fats and convenience foods our society feeds on. I strongly advise anyone going on Cura Romana to stop drinking coffee altogether before beginning the protocol. At the very least, I suggest you limit yourself to one cup a day. There are several reasons for this:
Coffee does not provide you with energy. What it's providing is chemical stimulation. The perceived "energy" comes from your body's struggle to adapt to increased blood levels of stress hormones, which coffee consumption engenders. In most cases this induced emergency state leads to well-defined side effects. Collectively they are known as caffeinism. Ironically, caffeinism is characterized most by fatigue.
Most important of all: One of the greatest gifts of Cura is the way it helps you connect with your own natural source of vitality from within. Drinking coffee on the program only defers your being able to do this. Please remember: Everything you need is inside you. You want to tap into that font of endless vitality within you and come to live from that year after year.
By the end of the first week on Cura Romana your body may begin to reveal a new sleek, toned appearance and feel. By then, you are likely also to sense a new balance in your emotions and the beginnings of a new outlook on your body and your life.
If you have struggled with your weight in the past you probably have four things in common with the rest of us: Your metabolic processes are sluggish; you are often hungry; you eat when you are not hungry; you worry about losing fat from the wrong places. The goal of Cura Romana is to help your body restore good metabolic processes. If you follow the protocol to the letter, trust your body and let go, your body can begin to rebalance itself. Then you will not feel abnormal hunger, food cravings will begin to melt away, and your system will steadily burn the fat you don't want.
Many weight loss diets result in a loss of muscle tissue and a consequent lowering of metabolic rate. With each failed diet, this meant that it took fewer and fewer calories for you to regain the weight you lost. In effect your metabolic chemistry went into "conservation mode", making it harder and harder to lose weight. Cura Romana does not cause a loss of muscle tissue. Instead, it helps your body to shift its metabolic functioning into a dynamic mode where your body is burning stored fat and producing energy. Once your body has restored its natural ability to turn the food you eat into energy, you will not be in danger of putting the weight back on-so long as you eat the things your body loves and completely avoid the foods it hates. Cura's unique Consolidation process is all about you finding out what your body thrives on.
Yes. People often feel great both during and after the program. They report that they don't experience the irritability or weakness common to many weight loss diets. They look years younger. The majority of people sleep better, yet many people find that they need to sleep less. They feel more alive, and more in tune with themselves. Cura appears to regenerate the body's essential fat tissues-the structural fat around organs and fat deposits-and other fat stores which are essential for health, but which never distort the shape of the body and help protect us in times of famine. This makes your skin, face, neck and hands look renewed and glowing. Most conventional weight loss diets take away structural fat as well as inessential fat. It is this which creates the sunken, hollow appearance and the deep fatigue common with yo-yo dieters. On Cura people report having more energy, a decreased appetite and fewer food cravings than ever before.
No. Cura Romana is not like most weight loss diets which compromise muscle and bone and cause metabolism to slow down. It draws energy from, and only burns up, your inessential fat stores, not your muscle tissue.
You might well lose the same amount of weight eating fewer calories, but you would need to exert phenomenal willpower. This would be highly dangerous. Never even try it. And you would lose much from your essential fat stores which we need for health. This is what makes people look haggard and feel weak on conventional weight loss diets. They lose both muscle and bone before the body turns to inessential fat stores, as one does on Cura Romana. Such diets slow metabolism, predisposing people to regain weight afterwards and lay down more body-distorting abnormal fat stores in the process. The Essential Spray together with the exacting Food Plan helps the body turn abnormal, shape-distorting fat into energy so you can shed only inessential fat stores without undermining bone, muscle or metabolism.
