THE WHOLE TRUTH RETREAT
The Whole Truth Retreats include a cleansing Juice Fast. A pre-cleanse programme will be sent to you in advance of the retreat. Implemented properly, over 1-2 weeks, this offers a gentle transition to live foods, reducing the detox symptoms that may be experienced during the course of the retreat and enabling a deeper cleanse.
You will ease into your fast with a delicious raw food menu. During the juice cleanse that follows, you will be served and organic fruit and vegetable juices four times daily, with added supplements for intestinal cleansing, healing and nutrition. Herbal teas and tonics will be given to support the cleansing process. The last days of the retreat we introduce light raw food, followed by a raw food feast for your final meal with us. A delicious takeaway raw food meal will be provided to take away with you.
During the retreat, you will gather the tools you need to support the continuing inclusion of healthy practices in your life. You will receive a wealth of information about juicing, smoothie-making, raw food, and sprouting/microgreen growing to inspire and uplift your daily eating habits once you return home. A plan for the reintroduction of other foods will be given on the final day, assisting you in identifying and eliminating foods to which your body is reactive.
Often, those new to juice fasting are concerned that they will feel weak or hungry, but this is rarely the case; though depending on your diet and lifestyle prior to the retreat, some participants may experience headaches or nausea as their bodies begin to release. You will receive a pre-cleanse and preparation programme by email prior to your stay with us. Simple changes to lifestyle and diet, practised for at least a week beforehand makes your cleanse more effective and minimises detox symptoms experienced while on retreat. Please consult your healthcare provider to determine whether a juice-cleanse is advisable for you.
