3-Day Eat Real to Heal Retreat
YOUR BODY IS YOUR LIFELONG COMPANION
It’s your home from the moment you’re born, through every single moment of your life. Unfortunately, it’s a “home” that doesn’t always get the very best treatment.
Environmental toxins in the soil, water, and air, processed food, stress at work, not enough movement, too much sitting in front of a computer screen—it all adds up.
The result: chronic illnesses like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, depression and fatigue. Diagnosis and treatment can be a confusing, frightening time, and it is easy to overlook the self-care that aids recovery. Learn to eat, supplement, detoxify and live to take control of your health and allow your body to heal.
It’s time to give your body some much-needed care, attention, nutrition and detoxification. It’s an investment in yourself that you’ll never regret.
Join Nicolette Richer, founder of Richer Health, for a restorative + optimally healing weekend retreat. Open to men and women of all ages.
