In an attempt to stop New Year’s resolutions from dissolving into February air, we launched a health rescue mission led by Spa Week’s Food & Wellness Expert Dr. Wendy Bazilian. Dr. Wendy’s a nationally acclaimed nutrition expert, author, the Golden Door Spa Nutrition Advisor, and the perfect woman to take on the job of helping one lucky winner of the Nutrition 911 Giveaway get on the road to optimal health. Not only would the winner get Dr. Wendy to answer their health S.O.S, the winner will first take a luxurious and health-themed retreat to kick-start the plan. After all, relaxation is the one of the first steps to overall well-being.

After thousands of entries, we are happy to announce that the winner is…

Congratulations to Linda J. of Joanna, South Carolina!

Linda will get a four-night getaway for two at the prestigious Golden Door Spa in Escondido, California. This includes three private in-room massages, one herbal wrap, two skincare appointments, and a choice of a manicure or pedicure. Also included is a customized Golden Door fitness program with a personal fitness counselor and gourmet spa cuisine.

After her retreat, Linda will be taking home everything she needs to continue on her journey to wellness. The home prize package includes a copy of Dr. Wendy’s bestselling book, The SuperFoodsRx Diet: Lose Weight with the Power of SuperNutrients, a personalized nutritional counseling program designed by Dr. Wendy designed specifically for Linda and $100 in Spa & Wellness Gift Cards by Spa Week.

Here is Linda’s message after we let her know the good news, and we couldn’t have picked a more worthy winner!

It is not only an honor to be the winner of the 2012 Spa Week 911 Nutrition Sweepstakes, it is also greatly appreciated for the health benefits this will award me. Most women who have experienced Menopause understand the extreme changes that take place in hormones and metabolism at this age. Despite efforts to address such issues with a tailored blood type diet over the past 3 years, I have continued to struggle with controlling weight gain. As a result I am very much looking forward to my personalized nutrition and exercise regimen that Dr. Brazilian has combined with this amazing spa retreat at the Golden Door Spa in Escondido, California.

As a Freelance Journalist in Natural Health and Spas, I am often researching and writing about the many benefits of exercise, nutrition and spa treatments, but as a rule rarely have the opportunity to afford myself such benefits. This spa retreat will be a welcome for myself on my journey to wellness, as well as a great joy to share it with my husband of 23+ years. This will be a first since our honeymoon, for us to get away together for four full nights alone. The knowledge that our journey will take us to one of the finest spa retreats in America just makes it all the more exciting.

We are genuinely looking forward to a time together of relaxation and rejuvenation in the serene environment that is a creative beauty at the Gold Door Spa.

We’re so happy to hear that our winner is a fellow writer of health and spa, but one who rarely gets to put her work to play!
