Juice Detox 5 Day Retreat

About This Event

The Juice Fasting Retreat is an oasis where you will be able to draw physical, mental and spiritual refreshment in a peaceful environment away from the demands of your regular daily life and sheltered from the challenges and struggles of the materialistic world. Come experience the power of this holistic rejuvenation program.

This retreat is designed to create better all-round health and relaxation. It will to give you tools to take charge of your own physical and emotional health. You will leave feeling more energized, struggling less with weight problems, with new tools to help kicking bad habits, with the knowledge of how to eliminate toxins, and simply feeling less stressed.

Why a Juice Fast?

The typical American diet makes us sick due to the way that our food is produced. Chemical fertilizers, herbicides and food additives cause an overload of toxins in our body.

Our bodies are undernourished due to eating foods that are dead and depleted of nutrients.

Juice fasting is one of the best and fastest way to detoxify and heal your body from most chronic diseases, because it effectively removes toxins, naturally hydrates the body with nutrients that repair, rebuild and regenerate cation in the body to health while having the opportunity to work on mind training and meditation skills. You will receive education on the proper care and feeding of a human being.

How does it unfold?

Three days before you arrive for the 5-day juice cleanse you must shift your diet to a cleaner diet and lifestyle. Although you can just jump right in without the Juice Fast Prep Regime it is NOT recommended as most people have more unpleasant symptoms during the first 2-3 days due to sudden detoxing. You will receive more benefit from the 5-day juice cleanse if you do your Prep Regime.

During your stay, you will receive daily superfood vegetable juices, alkalizing greens, and fruit juices throughout the day. You will be preparing these juices from recipes provided as part of your training and education. We are preparing you to be able to continue or replicate your juice fast at home.

Juice Fast Prep

While 5 days of the freshest and most nutritious cold pressed juices will do wonders for your health, it is equally important to prepare for three days before you come and to finish gradually for optimal results. This is why give you the recommendation of a 3-day pre-fast regime, 5-days of juice cleansing and 1 day to ease off the fast for a total of 9 days. 

You will still benefit greatly from 5 days of just juices.  However, you may experience detox symptoms to a greater degree than necessary. Some rapid detox symptoms include headaches, lethargy and upset stomach. We suggest preparing, detoxing and finishing as suggested for optimal results and less discomfort.
