Our Intensive Care Programs are for 14 to 28 days and are a tailor-made solution for people who are dealing with serious lifestyle management issues such as substance abuse , eating disorders, severe over or under weight, emotional traumas (PTSS), midlife crisis, self-esteem and physiological issues
These programs are only conducted at our Essential Beachside Retreat.
Your 14/28 day Intensive Care Program will initially consist of all days on our rejuvenation diet although a short period of juice fasting, during the program, will greatly benefit your digestive system and will be discussed with you on your arrival by our program director.
Naturally, the longer the program, the better the results.
All of our programs offer the most natural and efficient way to readjust your metabolic balance, which generates weight loss, body realignment, general fitness and wellbeing, while cleansing your body of the toxins, chemicals and parasites that have built up over the years and drastically inhibit good health and vitality.
During your program you will receive, in addition to your daily plan, our Intensive Care Program Module.
To guarantee that you receive our personal attention at all times, only 3 Intensive Care clients will be accepted at any one time. Please make sure you book your Intensive Care Program well in advance, as we are always very busy.
We serve only healthy all-natural juices, foods and supplements with no chemicals, pills, capsules or artificial substances of any kind.
During the pre-fast and rejuvenation periods, you will be served 3 “healthy life” meals per day, consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, salads and soups, with chicken and fish on request.
Or you may choose from the selections on our raw food menu, which is becoming increasingly popular among our guests. In addition, you will also receive 5 natural supplement and nutritional drinks and 3 fresh juices daily,
On juice-fasting days, you will not consume any solid food, but receive 8 natural supplement and nutritional drinks and 3 fresh juices daily, with a vegetable herb broth in the evening.
Guests are also encouraged to enjoy our selection of organic herbal teas and consume as much water as possible to enhance the cleansing process.
Our many years of experience have shown that this diet is more than enough to get you through the day and make the juice fasting stage of the program more comfortable.
You will be closely monitored on a daily basis however, the program can be adjusted at any time to suit your physical and mental needs.
Because of our “modern lifestyles” excess toxins and chemicals from the foods we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink accumulates in the faecal waste (plaque) that line the walls of the colon, (large intestine) causing general ill health over time.
The colonic irrigation is a very gentle water and coffee enema which you do daily in the privacy of your bathroom to flush out the accumulations of plaque. We give you a very thorough information and instruction session prior to your first irrigation.
On day 4 or 5 of your program you will have a gallbladder and liver cleanse to purge the liver of all the fats, cholesterol deposits, gallstones, poisons, drug residues, and toxic waste it has stored through the years.
The liver is so important to our well-being that many healers maintain it is impossible for most diseases to develop if it is functioning in an efficient, healthy manner – and that an unhealthy liver is very likely to be at the source of most serious health problems.
We can state with certainty that nothing else you do in life – even the colon detox – will result in a greater improvement to your overall health.
Again we deliver a full workshop on the process and benefits of the flush prior to you participating.
Throughout the program you will be actively participating in 4 to 5 hours of exercise daily, with group and 1-on-1 sessions available with our trainers. While our resort may be located on one of the most popular tropical islands in the world, your time with us will require your complete motivation and focus as “the more you put-in, the more you get-out”.
For maximum results, we encourage you to participate in all activities and assure you that the results will become visible by the end of the program. Sometimes things get a little worse before they get better, so please accept any minor physical and emotional discomforts you may experience at first, because the results will make these more than worthwhile.
On average, our guests lose between 0.5 and 1.0 kg each day while juice fasting, depending on their physical condition and commitment to the program.
The Ultimate Detoxification Weight Loss Program, coupled with the physical, mental and educational activities we provide, will prepare you for a return to the “real” world on-track to make the lasting changes that will allow you to realize all your personal goals.
Monday to Saturday (times may vary to suit your program)
Sunday is a rest day, although you still continue with meals, juices and supplements, all exercise sessions are self-managed and massages and colonics are available on request.
Also, we invite you to join our complimentary island tour, from 10am to 2pm.
