Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.

Studies show that happy people are healthier, have lower blood pressure and stronger immune systems than less happy people.

8 Benefits of Health Retreats

I ran across these 8 listed benefits of a health retreat. “In today’s fast-paced world, it is so easy to get lost in the daily stresses of life, and they can build up pretty quickly. We are always reachable now on our mobile devices, with a gazillion list of to-do’s that seem never-ending and impossible to accomplish.” Is this how you feel?

“By running from errand to errand and being always plugged-in to technology, we rarely give our bodies the break they need to recuperate from the inside out. A retreat can be the perfect opportunity for you to nurture your mind and body to an optimum level of wellness.

Discover Your Destiny

Discover Your Destiny

Your Destiny is Waiting…

Not knowing who we are and not knowing why we are here are two of the most compelling reasons why vegetable juicing and making other healthy dietary changes becomes so volatile for many people. It is often difficult to deal with the stresses of life without our favorite “comfort foods” and especially sweets to stuff down a variety of emotions. It’s hard to avoid food temptations when we don’t have a compelling reason to discipline urges for the wrong foods and drink. And we often find we can’t face ourselves once toxins start coming out.

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

Rejuvenating Power of Fasting

“Fasting is the food of the soul.

St. John Chrysostom

 

We kicked off our 30-Day Detox Challenge January 4 with a 3-day juice fast. It’s been an amazing journey for more than 150 of us.

The health benefits of fasting are numerous and significant. Often people say they experience benefits in just a few days such as greater energy, brain power, and vitality. Other important benefits include improved digestion, stronger immune system, better sleep, reduced inflammation, balanced blood sugar, improved circulation, weight loss, balanced hormones, clearer skin, and a greater sense of well-being. Long-term exposure to toxins has been linked to numerous types of cancer, diabetes, and other chronic, health conditions. Flushing toxins and waste away with a veggie juice fast is a super rejuvenator for your body.

Do you want to heal your body? You can rejuvenate your body from the inside out. It is said that only half of our cells are fully functional, another quarter are in the formative stage, and the remaining are sick or degenerating. Fasting takes care of the last quarter. “The diseased cells disappear [in a fast], and the healthy ones remain,” says Otto Buchinger. (From Wisdom From the Monastery)

30877912_lJuice fasting happens at our retreats. We begin with gourmet raw foods and Tuesday begin a juice fast for 3 days together. It’s very helpful to have a group to juice with. It’s also very helpful to have the juice made for you, along with not having any food temptations lying around. We’ve seen amazing healing take place at our Juice and Raw Food Retreats in just five days. People lose weight, look younger, get rid of pain throughout their bodies, and start healing more serious conditions. I invite you to join us in April for a life-changing week.

Look at what these people experienced with juice fasting and detoxing:

This is the 3rd week [of the detox] for me. I was so happy to look in the mirror and see ALL the cellulite in the back area GONE!! The skin is as smooth and toned as could be, without having worked out since we started. Wow, just wow! Keep up the work, everyone, it’s so worth it. Also, I am not weighing till monday but I can tell I’ve lost a lot. —Jonida

I have also lost cellulite but it was so hard to believe, I didn’t say anything (and I have a little more to lose). Thanks for mentioning this. It’s a confirmation for me!   —-Nancy Jo

I began an enlightening journey juicing about 2 quarts a day. Every day.  What happened?  I became less hungry. That gnawing feeling of always being hungry left me.  The cup full of vitamins I took 3 times a day dwindled down to about a tablespoon once a day.  The pain I felt most of the time has lifted. I only want to eat meat once every three days now. I experimented to see what would happen if I used juice in place of different vitamins, to see if I could eliminate them.  When I added more ginger, my sinus congestion left.  I experimented to see if I was imagining the improvements. I deleted the juice for 2 days.  The pain, lack of energy, hunger and sinus congestion returned.  I went back on the juice and it went away again.

“I am a mother of 7. Between being pregnant and nursing it adds up to 14 years.  Even though my diet has been very good all those years I see that I was so hungry for what I have found in juicing.  It has become an ‘A’ activity for me. I am saving hundreds of dollars a month by getting my vitamins fresh in juice. Quite a concept.  I am surprised…and delighted. ”    —-Kathy

“What an amazing class. I would have never made it thru without Cherie’s guidance. The group experience was beyond helpful. People across the world took part. So much healing in people. People lost from 8 to 30 pounds and felt so much better. I lost the stubborn last 10 pounds that plague so many along with achy joints.  Thank you, Cherie”. – B.W.
