7 Day Major Transformation Body & Soul Cleanse

About us

This program includes a thorough colon cleansing as well as healing protocols for leaky gut. All the evidence is in. A toxic colon or leaking gut is the root of disease. A program that just includes eating raw food or drinking juices will not clean a toxic colon. You need to actually address the toxicity in the body. Our program is based on a proprietary regimen of herbs that gently pull out toxins at the cellular level and begin to heal the gut lining. No other program offers you this comprehensive body cleansing in such a short period of time. You will be surprised at how easy and gentle this cleansing is. And, we give you the tools necessary for you to continue on this path for the rest of your life. All of this held at the Madre Tierra Retreat Center and Spa in Vilcabamba, Ecuador, known as the Valley of Longevity.  Madre Tierra has been nominated for 5 consecutive years as the best Hotel and Spa in Eduador!

Event Highlights

  • We guarantee that you will shift your health as well as lose weight and begin to solve problems. Some participants lose up to 15 pounds in a week. Along with the rejuvenation of your body, you will also have the opportunity during your stay to uncover your “inner saboteur”, that part of you that gets in the way of making healthy choices. Along with this program, there will be a program for de-stressing, work on finding out how to overcome your cravings, wonderful cooking classes and special lectures and activities that will give you a deeper understanding of the body as a unique healing system. We will focus on how to incorporate these ideas into your life once you return. Along with this focus on the “soul”, we plan to offer a trip into the beautiful Ecuador countryside to nurture and heal you. Join us for the total “Body and Soul Cleanse”!
