For the past 30 years we have facilitated our detox juice fasting retreats in many different parts of the world, Norway, England, Portugal, Spain, USA, India & Canada.
Our programs are for body mind - spirit, with yoga -meditation - alternative therapies & colon cleansing.
23 years ago we were guided to create our retreat centre at Moinhos Velhos in Algarve, Portugal, where we have programs from February to November.
Our detox and juice fasting program is conclusively proven. Occasionally we make minor changes, but the basic program, fine tuned over many years, remains the same.
The program works.

Our original concept , inspired by the works of Bernard Jensen, Swami Sivananda & Dr Gerson, motivated by the healing effect of of yoga, meditation, fasting & alternative therapies, was the creation of a detox and juice fasting program for body- mind - spirit, physical - mental & emotional detoxification and purification. We must have been correct in our concept as people come from all over the world to participate. Many come back. Some several times. In an average program 25-35% are returnees. September 2015 50% are returnees.
We do not make changes just because it is a fad. We have no boot camps, no ra-ra activities, no fancy exercise equipment, no treadmills, not even trampolines (If you want some exercise go for a walk in our beautiful nature) no newspapers, no TV and your cell phone probably will not work. OK, we do have Wi-Fi.
We have tried many types of fasting: The water fast, the salt water fast, the grape fast, the dry bun fast, the rice fast, the living on prana and light fast, we have fasted for over 100 consecutive days and we have tried a multitude of detox products. Our detox and juice fasting program is conclusively proven.
Occasionally we make minor changes, but the basic program, fine tuned over many years, remains the same. The program works.
