My name is Valerie Leeds, and over the last decade I have been there too. Growing up in NYC with a foodie mom, I naturally was exposed to a lot of amazing culinary delights. My palate grew to include multi-cultural cuisines at a young age, including plenty of bagels, fabulous breads and bakeries, mouth watering Chinese dumplings and Italian pastas. Seemingly out of nowhere, in my mid-thirties, my experience radically changed when I realized I was getting bloating and elimination issues! Apparently, I could no longer eat gluten and was overly sensitive to sugar. I was experiencing bloating, eczema, and on and off elimination issues, which than lead to brain fog and poor sleep. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling great. And my family started feeling like they needed a support group to keep up with the stress that eating was causing for me and them! Finding my way, navigating through the maze of non-GMO, organic, raw, vegan, gluten free, paleo I decided to become a Certified Health Coach in this process to rediscover my path back to vibrant health and well being. Fortunately, I have found a way to boil down all my years of trials and health issues down to some very simple principles and guidelines.
So now that you realize you are not alone, make the choice to be supported in creating your own sustainable healthy lifestyle, starting by doing an elimination diet the week prior at home, a colonic (either before coming or on your first day with us), and then a juice fast during your stay, and then segue mindfully back to chewing again before you depart. There is protocol for your week after fasting as well.
You consume only: 3 juice "meals" daily, which we teach you how to juice so you're empowered to take the skills home with you. You'll also have a LOT of alkaline water with herbs and spices from our special water system, and in the evening before bed 1 Ayurvedic herbal tea. That's it, it's truly a fast. You also are highly recommended to do a colonic either right prior to coming or the first day with us. This is important to rid yourself of toxins prior to fasting, so they don't contaminate your body while you are fasting and healing. This would be counter-intuitive. This is the only added cost a la carte, not part of the package, through a 3rd party, expert therapist, ($90 - $110 depending on your needs.)
Leaving our detox retreat you can expect to cleanse out your toxins, eliminate bloating, feel more energized, lower cortisol levels, help stabilize blood sugar levels, decrease cravings, lower your blood pressure, become more flexible, increase muscle strength, become more toned, feel lighter and walk with a deeper sense of calm and balance. With our guidance you will be ready and able to take on new lifestyle choices with transformational long term results for you and your family! I did.
Envision yourself enjoying sunny days, white sand beaches, palm trees and the tropics... This is your destination for your retreat. Support your body's natural ability to heal itself with our complete package to reset and recharge mind, body and spirit through our juice fasting detox program. You just pick how many days you want to spend in paradise. We'll take care of the rest.
While recharging at our beautiful retreat center in Boca Raton, you are welcome to enjoy daily yoga classes, join in on our yoga school’s in depth yoga teachings or just relax in our hot tub and resort style pool. Perhaps while you are here you will choose to experience community classes in the park, drum circles in the evenings, sunrise beach meditations, field trips, tai chi and more, (schedule depends on the days you are with us).
