These techniques have assisted me in dealing with my emotional turmoil in a very possitive way. I'm thinking clearer, more relaxed, sleeping better and my blood pressure has improved.

I have only been on the program for 8 days and my sugar cravings have stopped! I ahve even given up diet soda. I'm amazed at how easy it is to stick with the healthy eating choices. I have exercised for the past 7 days and liked it. It is really working.

Sam's methods of helping people is excellant! I am benefiting every day from the sessions and my weight is coming along well and having lost 8lbs. I have 8 lbs left to go. It is good to know that with your help I ahve been able to stop the negative slide that comes with getting older and reverse it to optimishm about future and quality of life. Your method had me review my life and get over the traumas that I had barried. I managed all right, but they were still on the back burner not doing me any good. I cant thank Sam enough from the bottom of my heart.

Very good and very innovative. You do not have to eat all these foods the traditional American way. Look at the shape Sam is in at 80 years old. My own doctor said you have to marvel at Sam. He is eating right. You also will learn not to claim "my arthritis" or other self limiting claims. Sam's CD's broke through for me. They did what years of counseling could not do, so in that sense, they are worth the price. I do think I should have asked more questions when I went there because I had thought I would be getting personal hypnosis sessions. They were sessions on CD and the CD's were not done specifically for me, but they were pulled from a library of over 1200 or so pre-recorded CD's and were given to me, as a result of the questionnaire I had completed. I had gotten the idea, at some point during my interview with a staff member, that I was not going to get personal hypnosis sessions. I was ok with that because I then got the idea that the CD's would at least be personalized specifically for me and I thought they would be recording those. It is not that they stated that to me but I had inferred that. Having said that, I would say that the CD's were pretty effective with the exception of one. One of them does not apply to me at all, because they use two sessions on each CD. They have a wonderful Dream Room. You have to see it if you are in Phoenix. Very effective and relaxing. There is nothing like it. Actually I am a little surprised that there are a bunch of one star ratings here. I think it is amazing to see such low ratings for Sam. We know Sam would not have been in the same location for several decades if he were a crook. Is there someone associated with a pharmaceutical company rating Sam down because he doesn't want a person to get well with Sam's CD's? Is there a psychiatrist, nutritionist, or psychologist or new age guy who is feeling that his business is threatened by Sam's effectiveness? Oh well, I hope this helps you make a decisions. I think it was a little pricey for me, given that the CD's were pre-recorded, but the Dream Room is a plus, they are very nice about offering additional CD's as well. Other than my misunderstanding about what the price was to include, I think it is a great organization.

Wow, I USED to sound like all of these negative people! I went to Sam in March 2010. After about 2 months on this Program, my Husband noticed a big change in me, he told me that I was Nicer. I had been so angry at Everybody and Everything and Sam's program has taught me to let go of my Issues (and yes EVERYBODY has Issues!) Life is so much better because I am a Happier Person. It is easy to believe in something that works!

This review is to Sam M. a true follower of our Lord would use his gift of healing without Greed. Brother Sam Please listen to me. You say in your commerical that the person would have a personal session with YOU. When is fact they don't. I feel positive energy from you Sam and I believe you were given this Gift from God to help people. But your own office and people you have employed are munipulating people by intimadation and guilt. How could a follower of our Lord Jesus tell people that "you must not care for ____ if you don't spend thousands of dollars on a collection of tapes! "That is not what Jesus would say or do you know this Sam. Please reach our to mankind for Jesus without greed. Your sister in christ. cwnbg436@hotmail.com

My poor mother, i feel so bad. She went to Sams office and paid him $1995.00. this was in the middle June 2010. 3 weeks later she unexpectedly passed away. She she never had an opportunity to use the cd's to find out if the worked. And of course when you call there office they will not disclose any information to you. All i asked for was to see a copy of the paper she signed that states there no return and 72 hr return policy. I am her daughter and a successor of her trust, i have the legal documents to prove it. but they wont prove what they have. They turned evil and hung up on my brother. If they are so christian like do they think that is how god wants them to act. For gods sake she only had the cd's for 3 week and we feel we are owed a refund.

From the desk of Sam Meranto:
I have been at the same office for 33 years. Over 20,000 Phoenix people and over 100,000 worldwide have benefited from our sessions. Psychiatrists, psychologists, professors and medical doctors have taken this course. Some of my competitors have posted and had their friends post derogatory statements, because they are jealous they cannot get the results that we get and they are losing clients. Common sense will tell you there is jealousy in all professions. Sessions have been used at Yale Hospital and Tucson Medical Center with good results. I suggest people come in and find out for themselves about our program. Don't let some sick minded person discourage you from getting results.

We give sessions to Veterans to help stop Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and to young children to help stop addictions and help stop them from joining gangs. This is a free service that we offer to the public. Be your own person and check this out for yourself. No one has been at the same location doing the same thing for 33 years that speaks for itself. I give God the credit for all the results that people receive. May God Bless all my competitors. The sessions don't cost $3,000.00, some people get help for free. We charge people according to their ability to pay. We send sessions to child abuse centers and other worthwhile organizations free of charge. Again 33 years at the same location, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. I must be doing something right. Come in and find out for yourself. If you are reading this then God wants you to get some help. If you believe the negativity then that is just what Satan wants.
I was invited to St Lukes Hospital and gave free time to help cancer patients. I went their and worked with 2 people that were bed ridden and wanted to die. Dr. Lucas called a couple of days later and said that both patients were sitting up happy as can be and wanted to live again. I offered my services once a week for free. He said he had to check it out with the Psychologist and Psychiatrist in charge. A few weeks later Dr Lucas called me and said, The psychology department in no way wanted me to help their patients, even though I proved it worked. You can't blame them in a way, here is some outsider that has a gift from God doing what they can't do. I am willing to teach psychologists and psychiatrists how to get people well without strong medication. But there is always jealousy with every profession. What a shame that the public has to suffer because of it. I respect all doctors and nurses, they are doing what they were taught to do and if you look at the record very few people get positive results with traditional psychology. Read this article that appeared in the Arizona Republic and after you read it make an appointment come into my office, I would like to meet you personally. If you live out of state you can download a free session and an evaluation. You can also make a small donation and receive a series of 16 sessions, which is 12 hours of therapy, for a Love gift of only $199.00. Check out my Website www.godwillhelp.com.

A surprisingly large number of psychiatric patients, expecially young women, die within two years of release from the hospital, Iowa researches reported after a study of more than 5,000 patients. These findings were reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This article reported in the United Press International, and published in the Arizona Republic on January 4, 1985.

I just read these reviews and feel they are all correct when put into the proper context. Unhappy people can usually demonstrate their inner feelings of anger and hatred quite convincingly. Skeptics are an obvious red flag to any reader. They seem to thrive on irrational thoughts.

I've known Sam Meranto for approximately 50 years.

Sam was hypnotizing salespeople in Worcester, Mass, when he was in his mid 20's and was very successful. He would hypnotize our entire sales group each morning and we would go out and sell. And all of us did well.

Sam opened his first clinic in Shrewsbury, Mass in the late 1960's. All his clients were referred to him by licensed medical doctors. He helped many physician's patients to achieve excellent results.

I can understand why some people may complain. Complaining usually comes from skeptics, non-believers and/or people with built up anger from other sources.

These feelings can go very deep and be caused by incidents or serious events that took place many years ago. ...This is the reason for Sam using an in depth questionnaire. When you go to a doctor, you fill out a medical history. When you go to Sam, he uses an evaluation.

I've heard Sam say many times that the fat on the outside a person's body is usually a reflection of conflicting problems and addictions going on inside the mind. And if you want to get rid of the fat on the outside, you got to get rid of the problems on the inside.

Some people complain just to complain and for no other reason. They would find a reason to complain even if they got his services for free.

I feel that those that are dissatisfied are suffering from deep inner anger and looking for someone ...anyone...they can make a scape goat out of so they can justify confused thoughts hidden deep within their minds.

Sam is a God gifted person and his long term results certainly prove it. Sam is a believer in God and prays many times each day for guidence. The reason he asks people if they believe in God is important to his work. A non-believer would need to be approached in a different way than an true believer.

I know that Sam would never show anger toward anyone. He is a Master at understanding how people think, act and react. Sam knows how to handle difficult people, difficult situations, and most important, he knows how to handle himself and does it all with ease and humility.

If the complainers failed at Sam's programs, they failed because they didn't follow his instructions and challenged the program.

I can assure you that nobody fails because Sam didn't do his job. And he will never quit on anyone. So if someone fails, it is they themselves that sabotaged their own success and rather than admitting they failed, they blame someone else... In this case it's Sam.

Sam is and always has been an honest dedicated person that works his heart out to help people, and he's been doing it for all the years I've known him.

Oh...by the way... Sam taught me his "Mind Power" when I first met him 50 years ago. I practice it daily and I can honestly say that it works as good today as it did when he first taught it to me.

I suggest that anyone reading these reviews to contact Sam and also visit his website and see for yourself at sammeranto.com. I'm certain you'll be pleased with it all.

Finally:
A message to the complainers....You should have stayed the course.....I think your scepticism, built up anger and obvious hatred would have resolved by now and you wouldn't be suffering as you are today. It's so nice to enjoy life without anger and hatred....Try It !

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.

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.

My coworker paid the price to stop smoking -it truly worked for her but the first thing she advised was -no one can make or tell you do anything that you dont internally want to do - even with hypnotism. It will not work if you dont want to stop smoking,eating,what ever the ailment. Just like anything else you can make yourself believe you are ill and you will feel ill - same applies here. I f you dont believe it will change or help then truly you should not waste your money or time-- My coworker purchased the program about 7 years ago, has not had a desire to smoke and as she advised it was as if the cigarette smell and desire had been removed.My coworker has no reason to lie or defend Sam Meranto but again - if "you" dont believe something will or can work -then it wont. - if you can purchase the same from someone else for less i dont know - i havent had anyone with direct experience state.

3 years ago I purchased a All Faith Program, I did pay $1,999.00, believe me it is a very small price for the feeling of Peace I have now, I always wonder how people could not get over their fears, until I experienced them. Besides getting rear of my fears, I lost 15 pounds, Got rid of many other problems which blocked my life, and best of all I have a better relationship with our CREATOR. The programs gives you a consultation, complete evaluation, a custom set of CDs, and unlimited visits to the center for pone year to talk to the counselors, or use the meditation room, where they give you access to all the CD libraries. Divided by month, $166.00, How many hours would that buy you with a psycologist? Sam Meranto's center has a payment plan you can pay $100 deposit and $50 per month. Do you think is worth it?

Just left Sam Meranto's high pressure "free consultation" with my Mother. This man turned on us when we told him we wanted to think about it before signing a contract for $3000.00. This supposed "healer" told me that I obviously didn't want to help my mother and then told us to leave his office. Really not a good person after all. Scary and sad. My Mother totally would have given this man her money if I hadn't been there. A hypnotism CD is not worth $1999!

Kiss your money goodbye because this place is a total scam. They ripped off my elderly mother for $1900.00 because of high pressure sales tactics. When you try to cancel they suddenly turn from so called Christians to attorneys. Stay away!

If you notice the reviews here, there is no in between, and the positive reviews sound like a sales pitch straight from Meranto, and his henchmen.

So you are welcomed by a very nice girl, and led into a room to watch a video, that is testimonials from people. Let??s get the sales pitch going. Then you go into this dark room with oversized recliners and they put the headphones on, and start your tape. You would think after 30 years here, Sam would lose a little of that annoying New York Type voice. Well the tape goes on and on, and Sam is here to help you with the help of God. The tape gets lower and lower with all sorts of sounds, which I like to call white noise, so after 45 minutes you are almost asleep. Put me in a dark room, in a recliner with no tape and I would fall asleep. So it??s like taking a nap for 45 minutes.

It??s over, and out to the pitchman for the hard sale. They review the questionnaires you filled out, and you find out you have ten times the amount of problems you thought you had. So Ok I??m screwed up, what??s the cost and how many times am I going to need to see Sam Meranto? By the way where is Sam Meranto???

Bam $2,000.00 and I??m going to get CDs to take home, and I never have to even come back. Just listen to them and I will be healed. LOL. Well for $2000.00 I??m surely going to see Sam Meranto while he makes my $2000.00 CD??s Right? NO, you see many screwed up people had the same problems as me, and so they just pull a stock CD that could have been made 30 years ago. I??m sure Sam will at least insert my name into the CD, but no to that. By the way where is Sam Meranto again, I??m sure he would want to see me and at least talk to me? No

Well Sam being here 30 years I??m sure I get a money back guarantee, NO. In fact in Arizona you have 72 hours to back out of a contract, but if you sign hear we will get rid of that 72 hours, and just trust us the Pre Made CD??s will work, and we will throw in this nice case to hold them.

So $2,000.00, pre made CD??s, No sessions at all with Sam, and you have to sign off on any chance you have of getting a refund. Come in once and finish at home, that is there slogan. It should be Come In Once And We will Take Your Money And Kick You Out The Door. High Pressure all the way, after that nice nap, then the God thing goes away, and they turn into the used Car Salesmen they really are.

Sam saved my life. I met Sam in April '06. I went in because I was having severe back pain and no other treatment was working. I sat down with Sam, and within the first five minutes of the visit, my back instantly started feeling better. It must have been God working through Sam; it was amazing!
After I filled out the questionaire, I noticed I was feeling lighter. And wouldn't you believe I was ten pounds lighter than when I walked in the door. It was a miracle! Within the first 20 minutes of my visit I'd lost ten pounds and my back pain was healed! Praise God!
The trick to Sam's success is to open your mind and heart to The Lord. Sam doesn't heal you; The Lord does. Sam is just a messenger for The Lord. Just think, Sam has been at the same location for over 30 years- that should tell you something, right? People don't stay in the same location for that long by accident. I was so happy I met Sam!
I would recommend Sam's program to anyone who needs help for anything. If you go to the consultation and decide it's not for you, it's the devil at work. The devil wants you to be in pain and unhappy. Take a good look at Sam. Does he look like a dishonest man who would con good people out of money? I didn't think so either.
Thank you, Sam, for your help. You're an angel.

Pros: Saved My Life

Cons: Should Have Done It Sooner

I needed help with recurrent depression. And I am not saying that they have not helped people,I am convinced they are helping people in the capacity that they understand what help is. My disappointment is in the fact that they lead you to believe you will be getting a free session, when its a free sales pitch. I gave it 30 minutes of the 45 she said it would take and whats weird is all the things you hear in the headphones as well as feel some kind of laser or electricity going through your ears...this bothered me more later on when the sensation in my ears wouldn't subside. One of the things you hear in the headphones is an echo to everything Sam is saying, which would be ok except it gets fainter and fainter, and changes to being an echo of something other than what he is saying.....you cant make out what it is, only that it is different....I left when I realized, it was a sales pitch and my ears were hurting,,,,,dont know what in the world went on, but when I went home, I took a nap and dreamed really weird dreams......the whole process lost my trust when it became a huge brain invasive sales pitch.,,,Sam, there is only one true God, and his son is Jesus Christ,...and he is the way the truth and the life,,,,,I believe you want to help people, but you are not including his Holy Spirit in your work..,.find him, find truth, he helps me and will continue to....and I thought maybe he wanted me to go to see you, but now I know you needed someone like me more than I needed you, because just because something seems right doesnt mean its from God,

Pros: nice reception people

Cons: you will see in the details

From the desk of Sam Meranto:
I have been at the same office for 33 years. Over 20,000 Phoenix people and over 100,000 worldwide have benefited from our sessions. Psychiatrists, psychologists, professors and medical doctors have taken this course. Some of my competitors have posted and had their friends post derogatory statements, because they are jealous they cannot get the results that we get and they are losing clients. Common sense will tell you there is jealousy in all professions. Sessions have been used at Yale Hospital and Tucson Medical Center with good results. I suggest people come in and find out for themselves about our program. Don't let some sick minded person discourage you from getting results. We give sessions to Veterans to help stop Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and to young children to help stop addictions and help stop them from joining gangs. This is a free service that we offer to the public. Be your own person and check this out for yourself. No one has been at the same location doing the same thing for 33 years that speaks for itself. I give God the credit for all the results that people receive. May God Bless all my competitors. The sessions don't cost $3,000.00, some people get help for free. We charge people according to their ability to pay. We send sessions to child abuse centers and other worthwhile organizations free of charge. Again 33 years at the same location, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. I must be doing something right. Come in and find out for yourself. If you are reading this then God wants you to get some help. If you believe the negativity then that is just what Satan wants.
I was invited to St Lukes Hospital and gave free time to help cancer patients. I went their and worked with 2 people that were bed ridden and wanted to die. Dr. Lucas called a couple of days later and said that both patients were sitting up happy as can be and wanted to live again. I offered my services once a week for free. He said he had to check it out with the Psychologist and Psychiatrist in charge. A few weeks later Dr Lucas called me and said, The psychology department in no way wanted me to help their patients, even though I proved it worked. You can't blame them in a way, here is some outsider that has a gift from God doing what they can't do. I am willing to teach psychologists and psychiatrists how to get people well without strong medication. But there is always jealousy with every profession. What a shame that the public has to suffer because of it. I respect all doctors and nurses, they are doing what they were taught to do and if you look at the record very few people get positive results with traditional psychology. Read this article that appeared in the Arizona Republic and after you read it make an appointment come into my office, I would like to meet you personally. If you live out of state you can download a free session and an evaluation. You can also make a small donation and receive a series of 16 sessions, which is 12 hours of therapy, for a Love gift of only $199.00.
A surprisingly large number of psychiatric patients, expecially young women, die within two years of release from the hospital, Iowa researches reported after a study of more than 5,000 patients. These findings were reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This article reported in the United Press

After seeing this man on television for many years I decided to call because I am at a point in my life...well, I win't go into details. Was transferred to voicemail when I first called saying they were too busy. I have been unemployed for 4 months and was on a phone call (on hold) with a potential employer when another call came in. I did not recognize the number and thought it might also be about a job. It was, however, a woman who worked for Meranto. When I briefly explained I couldn't take her call at the moment (employment call) and could she call back later she said, in a condescending tone, "well good luck with that" and hung up. I never heard from her or the Meranto organization again.

If they truly were in the business of helping people I would have been called back but hearing I was unemployed they weren't interested in talking to me since it was obvious from the initial phone call that I probably couldn't afford their "program." Since then I have read many others online who have exposed this man for what he really is...a Bible thumping snake oil salesman! Of course one of Sam's loyal followers will post something after this saying how I am possessed by demons and that I'm weak and Sam is a genius and a visionary and was chosen by God to help people. Nothing could be further from the truth and my only weakness was calling this fraud to begin with!

Pros: None That I Can See

Cons: He's A Fraud

.

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.

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.

Pros: I was so angry when I walked out, I was no longer in pain

Cons: I can't rate lower than a 1 star

To the others whose reviews I read also: so Sam dresses nicely. So what? That is a sign of good mental health and physical health. People who do not care about how they look and their personal hygiene are not healthy. I know from my own life experience. My quest for perfection and beauty, leads me to self-inflicted facial excoriation. I cut and scape at my own face to remove imaginary imperfections and blemishes. Yes, I am sick and need help. I know this. I believe Mr. Meranto maybe the man God has put in my path to help me. Besides, would you trust a professional who was slovenly and smelled of poor hygiene. It sounds like you do not trust people who success you envy.

Further, who can prove the fancy cars were his? Do you think he was driving both simultaneously to work? Get realistic, not jealous. They could have belonged to his clients. Most business owners, doctors, dentists and lawyers have private parking spaces and I am sure you are aware of that.

To be healed to first have to be realistic about your health. You have to accept that you are ill and need help. Secondly you have to be willing to seek out help. Third, you have to have faith that the treatment will work, even if it comes from unconventional means.

If you want to be well, put your thoughts and actions into positivitiy: believing you can be healed. Do not waste your time in negativity by trying to tear down Sam Meranto. Remember God is always in control of the Universe and if Sam Meranto is the fake, con man and charlatan some believe him to be, then God will take control of the situation. It is not your job.

As for me, no, as I said I have not met Sam yet. Nevertheless, I have faith and belief that I can be cured and my thoughts and actions on on finding a way to get his help.

Pros: his good reputation

Cons: my lack of funds

To the lady who complained and said I high pressured her., ?I apologize?, Her mother told me she has wanted to sign up in my program for 5 years. She asked her daughter to drive her in and she was ready to sign up. Her daughter told her you better think about it. She has been thinking about it for five years. People that put off things for tomorrow, tomorrow seems to never come. In this way we sin against our inner self. Her mother needs help and I will even send her a session for free in the mail. I will mail it today. The cost of our program if paid in full is $1995.00, its $2995.00 on time @$50.00 a month with no interest. We help anybody that wants it and charge according to their ability to pay. We have sessions as low as $49.00. My sessions are used at Yale University in the senior care program and they have been very helpful and effective. And 31 years in the same location speaks for itself. Over a thousand people a year come in to see us, that?s over 30 thousand people. The percentage of people that are unhappy you can count on one hand. That is a record I am proud to say.

Pros: It Works

.

If I had known how my life was going to change when I paid him what he asked for, I would have happily paid him twice as much . Now that I have seen the results, I would gladly pay him at least 4 times as much. That is my opinion of what Sam Meranto does. PLAIN AND SIMPLE, HE SAVED MY LIFE. And I have met hundreds of people whose lives have been positively affected by this man. After seeing doctors, surviving cancer, and a ministroke, weighing allmost 400 pounds, etc, etc, I realized that the world is full of whiners who will always find a reason to fail, even if it means losing your life. I know, i whined for quite a while myself. Thank God I valued myself enough to invest in his system of guided meditation. I got what I paid for, and then some!!!
I was so inspired by his work, that I have now dedicated my life to bringing his system to the Spanish-speaking community, and they now are beginning to see the positive effects of this simple yet powerful system.
I am not going to deride those who disagree. Instead, I'll say a prayer for you because I know what it is like to be where you are today: drowning in fear, doubt and worry. Looking for excuses to fail like I "felt pressured". The pressure you may have felt is the price you have to pay to get out of your comfort zone and change your life. I will give you this guarantee: let money rob you of the opportunity for a better life, and 'money' will always do the same- rob you of the opportunity to live better. And next week, next month, next year you will be in the same place: angry, fearful and doubtful, and probably sicker... still whinning about this, that or the other....
To the rest of you who may be looking a way to improve your lives: THIS IS IT! Pay the price you are asked for, and open yourself up to greater possibilitties. And you can do it while you sleep, just by listening instead of complaining.
God bless.

From the desk of Sam Meranto:
I have been at the same office for 33 years. Over 20,000 Phoenix people and over 100,000 worldwide have benefited from our sessions. Psychiatrists, psychologists, professors and medical doctors have taken this course. Some of my competitors have posted and had their friends post derogatory statements, because they are jealous they cannot get the results that we get and they are losing clients. Common sense will tell you there is jealousy in all professions. Sessions have been used at Yale Hospital and Tucson Medical Center with good results. I suggest people come in and find out for themselves about our program. Don't let some sick minded person discourage you from getting results. We give sessions to Veterans to help stop Post Traumatic Stress Disorders and to young children to help stop addictions and help stop them from joining gangs. This is a free service that we offer to the public. Be your own person and check this out for yourself. No one has been at the same location doing the same thing for 33 years that speaks for itself. I give God the credit for all the results that people receive. May God Bless all my competitors. The sessions don't cost $3,000.00, some people get help for free. We charge people according to their ability to pay. We send sessions to child abuse centers and other worthwhile organizations free of charge. Again 33 years at the same location, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. I must be doing something right. Come in and find out for yourself. If you are reading this then God wants you to get some help. If you believe the negativity then that is just what Satan wants.
I was invited to St Lukes Hospital and gave free time to help cancer patients. I went their and worked with 2 people that were bed ridden and wanted to die. Dr. Lucas called a couple of days later and said that both patients were sitting up happy as can be and wanted to live again. I offered my services once a week for free. He said he had to check it out with the Psychologist and Psychiatrist in charge. A few weeks later Dr Lucas called me and said, The psychology department in no way wanted me to help their patients, even though I proved it worked. You can't blame them in a way, here is some outsider that has a gift from God doing what they can't do. I am willing to teach psychologists and psychiatrists how to get people well without strong medication. But there is always jealousy with every profession. What a shame that the public has to suffer because of it. I respect all doctors and nurses, they are doing what they were taught to do and if you look at the record very few people get positive results with traditional psychology. Read this article that appeared in the Arizona Republic and after you read it make an appointment come into my office, I would like to meet you personally. If you live out of state you can download a free session and an evaluation. You can also make a small donation and receive a series of 16 sessions, which is 12 hours of therapy, for a Love gift of only $199.00.
A surprisingly large number of psychiatric patients, expecially young women, die within two years of release from the hospital, Iowa researches reported after a study of more than 5,000 patients. These findings were reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This article reported in the United Press

Pros: Simple to use and very effective

Cons: none

Sam Meranto taught me his Mind Power techniques back in the early 1960's. I live in Massachusetts. Sam lived here most of his life until the early 1970's. I personally know his entire family and we are the God Parents of his son, Jason. I feel if anyone has the knowledge of his beliefs in the Lord and his gift of helping others with their problems, it would be me. I've been his closest family friend since 1959. We speak on the phone regularly and visit each other . I attest that Sam is sincere, honest, and true to his Christian beliefs and practices what he asks others to do. In other words, He Walks The Talk.

In appreciation for Sam's kindness over the years, in 1992, I gave Sam my own personal bible which was very important to me. But I did, because I highlited many scriptures which Sam directed me to read many years ago and I use them on a daily basis. The ones that helped me most are verses in the book of Mark in the New Testament; Mark 11:24 and 25 and James 2:17 thru 2:20.

If you read the above Bible verses, I think you will easily become enlightened where Sam' Spiritual reaities are coming from. Sam never took any credit for healing anyone, but I feel he was given a job to do on this earth and I believe he helps those who believe and follow his suggestions through their faith and good works.

Is Sam a con man?
YES HE IS! He cons people into believing in God's Power. He's God's master salesman and he would never have stayed at one location for more than 30 years if he was dishonest and didnt have so many testimonials from satisfied people who were helped by his Bibical pholosophy and help from God.

Anyone who questions Sam's abilities to be able to help people with problems through bibical teachings should read this unsolicited testimonial because it' comes from my heart and from someone who knows him like I do.

Truly,
Bob G. in Massachusetts

Well, Sam, my Mother is still waiting for the free cd you promised in the rebuttal below. Funny...must be lost in the mail. And the fake reviews that you posted below would come across a little more believeable if they weren't dated the three consecutive days after I wrote mine. BTW- just spoke to my Mom. She isn't disapointed that you didn't help her. She is just great and she is very glad you didn't take advantage of her. She does however say that you were so mean spirited during our meeting that she can't stand to see your face on the commercial and changes the channel as fast as she can when she does see it come on the TV. DON'T DRINK THE KOOLAID, FOLKS. THIS MAN IS NOT A GOOD PERSON AND DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

I really think that this man is a charlatan. I went to his offices hoping to use the free session to go over my problems with someone there and to get a common sense answer or at least a game plan in order to feel better about my problems. This Sam Meranto dresses to the nth degree and has two of the fanciest cars parked in front. He is someone who is show business oriented, self serving, and cares only about money. When I wanted to tell what was troubling me to the counselor, she quickly got me off the subject and only wanted me to sign a contract. When I was speaking to her in her little office, Sam Meranto opened the door and came in. He seemed to know what I had been telling her. I believe he uses some listening device. All he talks about is that he is in the same location for thirty years. My advice is stay away from Sam Meranto!!!

I wouldn't know what "qualifications" a hypnotherapist needs to be considered legitimate. I do know that I crawled into Sam?s office in debilitating pain due to diabetic neuropathy. The pain had been continuous and relentless for nearly seven months. An hour and a half later, I walked out and have been free from the tormenting pain ever since. If he?s a fake, he still has me fooled, two weeks later. I was taking an enormous amount of narcotics before, begging to get increases in quantities and dosages. I have already begun the painful process of weaning myself off these, but his CD's are helping me through.

Is God doing this? Sam says so, and I find that admirable. Sam doesn't present himself as the polished professional some might need to fulfill their dream of what a Psych Dr. needs to be. Sam is everyman, only he is one with a self-pronounced gift from God. Yes, I had to pay him his asked price in order for him to share his gift with me, but then..."a laborer is worthy of his hire". I would have mortgaged my house and sold the dog for what I received in return. I have paid much, much more already to my family doc, endocrinologist, neurologist, urologist, naturalist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, urgent care facilities, emergency rooms, and in lost wages from my job.

Now about those blessed CDs that I get to take with me, well I thank God for them, as I have a piece of Sam with me 24/7. I am growing, and learning every day thanks to Sam Meranto, his gift, and these CD?s.

I still have a ways to go before I get to where I want to be. Two weeks ago I was grasping at thin air, today I am sure I am going to get there. As for Sam, time will serve him better for me to give my final review, but I would say that it?s looking very, very good for him.

Sam will just takes thousands of dollars in the name of God and send you home with some tapes. Seek a professional. Don't believe everything you hear on TV. Hypnosis is a wonderful tool, but seek a professional rather than Sam.
