Chemicals and metals are everywhere, and are almost unavoidable. They are in the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and in many of the items we come in contact with on a daily basis. The body’s natural system of filtration and detoxification systems include the lungs, liver, kidney, and skin. If these systems are unable to handle everyday contaminants, biochemical toxins build within the body. Over time, this can lead to condition known as toxemia, which can weaken many of the body’s systems and can contribute to and aggravate many conditions.

Once toxemia is suspected, a detoxification therapy becomes necessary. We use many detoxification therapies including heat infrared sauna, biodetoxification and chelation therapy to help clear and open up the filtration and detoxification systems.

Our Retreat is a nutritional program that utilizes the body's own mechanism to improve your health.

Our Advanced Therapy is a detoxification and rebuilding program. It consists of flooding the body daily with nutrients from about 5-10 POUNDS of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables daily. We offer our Juice Fasting and Cleanse nutritional program to support the detoxification process. As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs, in particular that of the liver, and the immune system to restore them to its optimal function.

Throughout our lives Our bodies are being filled with a variety of disease and cancer causing pollutants. These toxins reach us through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medicines we take and the water we drink. As more of these poisons are used every day and cancer rates continue to climb, being able to turn to a natural, detoxifying treatment is not only reassuring, but necessary.

Our Therapy is a powerful, natural treatment That boosts your body's own immune system to support your body if you have cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. One aspect of our Therapy that sets it apart from most other treatment methods is its all-encompassing nature. An abundance of nutrients from up to thirteen fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing your body with a super dose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. The enemas aid in eliminating the lifelong buildup of toxins from the liver.

With its whole-body approach to healingOur therapy naturally reactivates your body's magnificent ability to heal itself - with no damaging side-effects.

Although the philosophy of cleansing and reactivating the body is simple The Therapy is a complex method of treatment requiring significant attention to detail. While many patients have made full recoveries practicing on their own, for best results we encourage starting and practicing at the retreat center and taking back what you have learned so that you can continue with it at home.

It is rare to find cancer, arthritis, or other degenerative diseases in cultures considered "primitive" by Western civilization. Is it because of diet? The fact that degenerative diseases appear in these cultures only when modern packaged foods and additives are introduced would certainly support that idea. Degenerative diseases can be brought on by toxic, degraded food, water and air.

Our Program and Therapy seeks to regenerate the body to healthSupporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from up to 5-10 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, one glass every 2 hours, up to 6 times per day. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases. The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.

Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure. To prevent this, the therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body's essential defenses - enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells, and the body, can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.

No treatment works for everyone, every time. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not giving you the facts. We know that when you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment, choosing the best strategy for fighting your illness can be a bewildering task. Everyone claims to have either "the best treatment", or "the only therapy that works." In most cases your trusted family physician only has knowledge of conventional treatments, and is either unaware of, or even hostile toward alternative options. No matter how many opinions you receive on how to treat your disease, you are going to make the final decision on what to do, and you must be comfortable with your decision. Choose a treatment that makes the most sense to you.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative treat only the individual symptoms while ignoring what is ultimately causing the disease. The reason that our therapy is effective with so many different ailments is because it restores the body's incredible innate ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the therapy treats the cause of the disease itself. Although we feel the therapy is one of the most comprehensive foundational treatment programs for disease, we don't claim it will cure everything or everyone.

Who Qualifies to Come to the Retreat: We accept most people that want to come and improve their overall health and life. We want to make sure that you are safe to travel and partake in our advanced programs. Must be able to eat, drink and eliminate normally, as well as be able to travel and take care of their personal needs. If you have major health concerns, and need considerable assistance, then you will need a more thorough evaluation to allow you in. For those in hospice care or in other advanced care systems, our retreat is not the right place for you. We are not a hospital or advanced care facility. All individuals have to take care of their own self care and general needs such as bathing, eating, drinking, dressing, going to the restroom, as well as be able to self administer enemas. We are not a 24 hour care facility and the staff and doctors are only there during the day for assistance and guidance.

The diet is naturally high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, micro-nutrients, extremely low in sodium and fats.

  • The following is a typical daily diet for a patient on the full wellness therapy regimen:
  • Up to six glasses of fresh, raw carrot, apple and green-leaf juices prepared from fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Three full vegetarian meals before and after juice fast; freshly prepared from organically grown fruits, vegetables and whole grains. A typical meal will include salad, cooked vegetables, baked potatoes, vegetable soup and juice.
  • Fresh fruit available at all hours for snacking, in addition to the regular diet.
  • 1 Coffee Enema daily in the privacy of your own room.

A very important part of the therapy is frequent detoxification of the tissues and blood.This is accomplished through a variety of means, first and foremost through the use of a coffee enema daily.

The scientific basis for the use of coffee enemas is well documented. Patients report that the enemas decrease pain and hasten healing. This has been shown to enhance the body's ability to eliminate toxic residues from environmental, chemotherapeutic, and other sources.

In addition, digestive enzymes serve to enhance absorption of nutrients as well as assist in the elimination of damaged tissue.

Our Purpose:Motivate, Empower, support and coach individuals to make positive changes in there lives, and to take responsibility for their health.

Our Clinical Therapeutics The clinical approach consists of detoxifying and nourishing the body, the mind and the heart. The most elegant approach is based on fasting and nutritional therapy. Fasting on water or juices or a raw food diet is the most radical and the most efficient way to treat and prevent most illness. The nutritional therapy is a stepping stone to address mental, emotional and spiritual issues that may create imbalance. To achieve this goal the following methods can be used: meditation, awareness techniques, guided imagery, movement. Adjuvant therapies such as hydrotherapy, intravenous therapies, vitamin supplements, botanical medicine and homeopathy may be used in conjunction with the nutritional therapy or afterwards.
