What to expect

Looking to achieve a great result in a short amount of time?

Our approach is a highly personalised, patient centred approach with menus and programmes tailored to suit needs and tastes. 

Each retreat is a carefully crafted combination of nutrition, fasting, movement, education and inspiration.  Think about it like putting your body through a service - after all, it's the only vehicle that truly matters. 

Where appropriate, we can also offer advanced functional medicine/laboratory tests that can measure your genetics, vitamin / mineral status, hormones and digestive function. This can be done before or after your retreat through our clinic in London or managed remotely. 

Health benefits 

When you juice fast the body is given the time to identify and get rid of toxins, and can repair damage. This process is called autophagyFor example, when mitochondria (the cellular generators responsible for energy output) progressively lose function and become damaged, the rate of cell ageing increases. A juice fast enables the cells in your body to get rid of the dysfunctional mitochondria, allowing them to be replaced by more ‘energy efficient’ new ones. It also helps the body fight infections and recovers from injuries.

So, during a retreat the process of elimination of the dead and dying cells is speeded up and the new building of cells is accelerated and stimulated. At the same time, the toxic waste products that interfere with the nourishment of the cells are effectively eliminated and the normal metabolic rate and cell oxygenation are restored.

 

 

Health benefits 

When you juice fast like you do on our retreats the body is also given the time to identify and get rid of damaged or defective parts. This process is called autophagy.

For example, when mitochondria (the cellular generators responsible for energy output) progressively lose function and become damaged due to ill health and bad diet this intensifies the rate of cell ageing and death. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to a variety of illnesses including diabetes, heart disorders and neurological problems.

Autophagy enables the cells to get rid of the dysfunctional mitochondria, allowing them to be replaced by more ‘energy efficient’ new ones. It also helps the body fight infections and recovers from injuries.

So, during a retreat the process of elimination of the dead and dying cells is speeded up and the new building of cells is accelerated and stimulated. At the same time, the toxic waste products that interfere with the nourishment of the cells are effectively eliminated and the normal metabolic rate and cell oxygenation are restored.
