Cate Blanchett by Natalie Evans-Harding
Dec. 19, 2012 - Bazaar: If you ever need to get in shape quickly for a part or a shoot what do you do?
Blanchett: "I've done a lymphatic cleanse a few times for liver, kidneys and gallbladder - there's a guy in Los Angeles called Dr. Bo Wagner. It's not to lose weight, it's more of a detox but I felt fabulous after it. It's hardcore; it's a month long and all herbal and you detox, cleanse and then renew everything. You don't eat for a week but it really made me feel incredible."
Jason Lee by Sandra Ballentine
Sept. 1, 2011 - When Jason Lee decides to take it off, he takes it all off. The 41-year-old actor, who played an affable, overweight and almost comically hirsute slacker on "My Name Is Earl" from 2005 until 2009, recently shed 40 pounds and a whole lot of unnecessary facial hari. "I got chunky during 'Earl,' and I had the big mustache for four years," Lee says. "It was time to clean up my act."
He slimmed down thanks to a five-week cleanse under the direction of Dr. Bo Wagner, a leading Los Angeles diet guru. "He taught me proper food combining, and how to eat for my blood type," the actor says. "I cut out sugar, starch and booze, and I'm now as trim as I used to be in my early 20s, when I was skating. It's really gnarlly." (Lee became a professional skateboarder at 18 and still heads up Stereo Skateboards, the skate company he co-founded 19 years ago.)

A 2009 New York Times Bestselling Book
Dr. Jerry Kartzinel: "I partnered with Dr. Bo Wagner, who has been formulating vitamins and supplements for thirty years, to create Kartner Health."

Because of him and his products I was able to believe in biomedical treatment when I first heard about it in the autism community, so the fact that you both created Kartner Health makes me want to do a happy dance."
Jenny McCarthy: "Let’s start with constipation. I was constipated my whole life and thought it was normal to go poop only once every fourteen days. It wasn’t till I moved out to L.A. and met with a nutritionist, Dr. Bo Wagner, that I realized how bad that was."

Jenny also follows rules about which foods she can eat in one meal.

Paralympic Alpine Skiing Champion, U.S.A.
Four-time World Champion
Five-time World Cup Champion Alpine Skier
Stephani continues to aim high and has her sights on a gold medal at the 2010 Winter Games. Stephani is one of the most celebrated names in U.S. adaptive alpine skiing. Among her many accomplishments, Stephani was profiled in Sports Illustrated magazine's Faces of '96. Stephani was also a torch bearer for the Salt lake City 2002 Paralympic Games.
I knew that winning the Paralympic Games would prove to be very difficult following such a hectic World Cup race schedule. I explained to Dr. Wagner I was concerned about not getting enough of the proper foods for my blood type on the road. Garden of Plenty® and Colon Magic® filled my suitcase on our trip around the world and proved to be far better in sustaining my performance than if I would have eaten the "American" food they offered. No one could believe that multiple Garden of Plenty shakes a day were my source of nutrients and energy instead of "dead" meals.

Dr. Bo Wagner
Sept. 2007 - The rich have a new kind of bodyguard: Body Gurus who deliver weight loss and energy. They are the superstar nutritionist, acupuncturist, and food shrinks – the wellness pooh-bahs – whose ultimate goal is to make you tight, lean, and gorgeous. They have a celebrity following and an almost cult like devotion from those hell-bent on bodily perfection, or at least purification. Five practitioners, including Dr. Bo Wagner of Los Angeles, have gained a powerful reputation among those with extra cash and body fat to burn and seem to serve as a combination of cheerleader, guidance counselor, and loving-but-firm parental figure.
