As a fit marathon runner of 44 years of age I had never dieted, fasted, detoxed or sought detailed advice on nutrition. However, after injuring my back recently, followed by and a bout of shingles, I realized that I had to take more interest in how I fuel my body. I couldn't have found a better place to detox and educate myself about diet and nutrition than at your retreat
Firstly, although I live in London I was happy to travel to San Diego for a week. The location in Julian was like staying in a European ski resort at 1,200m. This made my stay very relaxing and the views when running or walking were spectacular. With a great Wi-Fi service, I was also able to Skype my family every day with no delays.
The program of green and fruit smoothies, intestinal cleansers and herbs in combination with daily colonics really got my body rebooted ready for a healthier lifestyle. I also had enough energy for daily exercise and never felt tired. The sauna and Jacuzzi were also very relaxing along with the amazing massages.
In addition the one-to-one care, nutritional advice, information sheets, DVD library and lectures really helped me to fast track my knowledge. The food prep was good fun and the meal to break the ‘fast’ was fantastic.
On returning to London I could already feel the benefit of the changes to my diet. I have already purchased a Vitamix Blender and have started to make green smoothies for my wife and me every morning. And my children aged 9, 7 and 3 are enjoying a daily fruit smoothy with us too!
My physiotherapist has assessed my back injury since returning to London and now believes are I will make a full recovery, which was not the case before my week with at your retreat!
I am now embarking on a much healthier lifestyle for me and my family following spending truly amazing week with you. Here’s to many more years running!
Thank you so much
