A 100% let down
I went to see this guy because of pain I have been in for a while now. I have tried everything and thought that I should try this out. What could it hurt? Right?

I walk in with my grandpa and we are greeted by a very nice lady who was seemed to honestly try to be helping me.
We go into an office and we watch a video with Sam Meranto on it, sitting at a desk. It was taped in 2005. Very lame. The video has a bunch of different testimonials and all these claims of losing weight and curing their cancer.
After words we go into a hippie den with black lights, fog, and forest background music. Me and my grandpa sit in these big recliners to listen to a 45 minute demo tape.
It was full of stories about how Sam Meranto has helped famous people such as the Bush's (former president) family and a baseball player for the AZ Diamondbacks. Half way through this tape Sam says "The reason you are here today is because god has lead you hear, and if you leave here today not wanting the help I am offering, it is the work of the devil".
I was pretty angry after that was said, but I kept going with this because of the large amount of positive results.
After the demo tape, we go back into the waiting room and we are greeted by a couple who claim to have been with this program for 30+ years. They work their now I guess.
After this we go back into that office to speak to the deal closer guy; the sales man.
He starts off with a couple videos of testimonials of people claiming that their Diabetic Neuropathy is gone and how this other women lost 150 pounds (like i care about weight loss. I am in there for the pain "cure")
After those, he asks me "Do you believe in god". I politely told him that I do not feel comfortable discussing my beliefs with other people who I do not know. He would not let up on the question. I had to explain to him about what I have gone through in my life to make me believe the things I do, I then become very angry with him and he finally gave up on the question. He went on with a couple more testimonials in this book he had on the desk. One about a guy who had a skin graft or something.
Some background on me for the rest of this to make sense (for the sake of the review).
I am a very analytical person about everything I do and read about. Because of what I have been through, I have to be or else I can get medications mixed up or not understand a procedure that is being performed on me with my doctors. It's just how my brain works, and anyone should be able to understand that,
Anyway, he starts saying how I look into these things too much and how I have to "change the way I think" and "not analyze things so much" and that I had to "take my analytical thinking cap off". Which made me angry because I wasn't looking for cult mentality. I am an individual and that is how I like it. I don't want to think the same way other people do just because this guy tells me I have to.
He can tell that I am becoming very angry with him. So he decides to flash the $2000/y price tag at me. I mean, seriously, what the hell makes him think an incoming college student has 2 grand to just drop on some CD's!
After we said that we are going to have to think about it. He looks at me and says "You know what Tim. When you decide to take the smart path in life. Come back and see us".
At that moment I said "You know what. We are leaving now". As my grandpa and I were leaving, the sales man gets up, slams his book closed, and when we leave his office, he slams his office door closed seemingly as hard as he could. He was angry at me and my grandpa because we would not feed into his degrading little mind games.
This whole process completely angered the hell out of me and my grandpa off. We will never go back and I will never ever give any form of positive referral to this hell hole.
