BELGRADE, ZLATIBOR AND HOME

Na osnovu dugogodišnjeg iskustva u radu, shatili smo da klijentima koji su zainteresovani za programe u oblasti lepote i zdravlja i koji bi ih rado sprovodili u okviru nekog hotela ili resorta, više nije dovoljno ponuditi šarene sokiće koji detoksikuju, zdrave organske obroke, preznojavanje u sanuni ili  tretmane koji brišu bore i tope kilograme. Reklame koje obećavaju revolucionalna rešenja i brze rezultate koje u većini slučajeva otklanjanju simptome i  daju samo privemena rešenja ešenje takodje nije ono što će privući nove klijente.

Ono što je zaista potrebno i što želimo ponuditi u okviru Quantum Wellness koncepta su programi koji deluju na ključne faktore koji utiču na zdravlje i čiju efikasnost je moguće  ne samo pratiti u realnom vremenu već ih možemo i predvideti.

Quantum Wellness nudi mogućnost da se konkretnije pozabavite svojim specifičnim problemima kroz nekoliko jednostavnih koraka.

Bez obzira da li u pitanju korekcija težine, alergija, dijabetes, artritis, kancer ili depresija, prvi korak je edukacija. Kroz naš inovativni Lunch & Learn edukativni program pomoćićemo vam da razumete koji su to ključni faktori od kojih zavisi vaše zdravlje. Drugi korak je dijagnostika, kojom će mo saznati važne infomracije o vašem zdravlju i treći ali ne manje važan korak je vaša rešenost i istrajnost u sprovodjenju programa.

WHY quantum WELLNESS?

Because we’re about full-body health and wellness, from the inside out.

Retreat Programs

BELGRADE, ZLATIBOR AND HOME

Helping guests since 2003 and specializing in advance whole body detox for many years, we realized that people do not go away to a health retreat just to drink some “colorful juices,” deprive themselves of food (aka do detox) or to sweat in a boot camp. They are looking for solutions to their physical, emotional health needs, to do a reset of healthy habits, recharge and me time… Detox, raw food, exercise, spiritual fasting etc. are merely means to gaining more energy, less weight and deeper inner peace. The issue we ran into was that the same approach and methods did not work for someone who wants to simply get away for recharge and those with colitis, getting of cigarettes, working on obesity or is riding an emotional eating roller-coaster. We have also seen that each guest has individual speed of healing, depending on a health condition type and stage, history of lifestyle habits and current emotional resilience. No matter how we fine-tuned the program, it was virtually impossible to find one-for-all solution.

That’s why we have created for you comprehensive and professionally guided specialized Areas of Focus that are flexible in order to meet your individual needs and that are proven to bring about tangible improvements of your specific health condition… provided you are realistic in your expectations and committed to your healing journey.  Be it working in-depth on arthritis, anxiety, sugar addiction, or if you simply need to a jump-start for your health, there is help for you at the Fresh Start. Based on many years of experience, we carefully picked and combined various program components and put together into most effective combinations and sequence, as well as designed a process that gradually assists you on a deep healing journey, while having most enjoyable experience and relaxed atmosphere.

WHAT IS GO-DEEPER™?
GO-DEEPER™ is a customized and individualized health program designed by the Fresh Start professional team to address your specific health issues that you choose to work on during your Core Program, while staying at the Fresh Start Retreat for 7, 14 or 21 days. GO-DEEPER™ consists of 3 main components: Professional Guidance, One-on-One Treatments and Custom Formulas.

On the GO-DEEPER™, you will experience one-on-one work with Natural Health/ Emotional Wellness Specialists and unique Custom Protocols. The goal here is to address your unique health concern more individually and specifically, be it working in-depth on weight loss, depression recovery, quit smoking, headaches or other health challenges. Your individualized health plan will be created from over 40 unique health-focused therapies and 30+ custom protocols for organ support, rebuilding and advanced organ-specific cleanses. The plan will be carefully designed, based on a thorough before and upon arrival assessment, using 15 years expertise of guiding people through the individualized healing process.

Choose Your GO-DEEPER™ Focus
While all guests experience similar classes and meals structure on Core Program, when it comes to the GO-DEEPER™, you can choose a specific area of focus on during your stay. Here are 4 main areas you can choose from:

DETOX & RECHARGE: detoxify your body, rest and recharge, rejuvenate and take a break from life, no major health issues.
PHYSICAL HEALTH: diseases of digestive track, hormonal issues, liver problems, back/shoulder/hip and other structural issues, lung concerns + others.
EMOTIONAL WELLNESS: depression, anxiety, grief, trauma/major life changes, PTSD, caregiver burnout, redefining self-identity, relationships building.
HABITS RE-PATTERNING™: quit smoking, emotional eating, sugar addiction, mild social drinking, marijuana and digital addiction, exercise routine.
As you see, within each area there can be a variety of health conditions. We work with each guest individually on their specific situation, taking into consideration what their main and additional concerns are.

Note: Most Fresh Start guests have been looking to improve across all 4 areas, yet experience showed that there is usually only one area that needs the greatest improvement. If a guest focuses on that area, his/her goals become more achievable and the results are more tangible and measurable.

What if I have more than one condition?

Most people who come to Fresh Start Retreat, have more than one condition and even area of need. You may need to lose weight, to lower BP, be pre-diabetic and are experiencing a Caregiver Burnout. Or you may be suffering with depression, want to Quit Smoking, are dealing with heartburn and need to acquire healthy meals preparation skills. Or maybe you are on a ton of medications, have a fatty liver, inflammation of the nervous system or body tissues, mobility issues and are in a lot of pain. And you totally do not know where to start, or what to focus on.

Good news is that we work with guests with multiple health challenges on a regular basis. If you are on medications, our Naturopathic Physician will review them and if you desire, will help you gradually start decreasing them, provided you start improving and it is safe.

How Do We Work with You: Why do GO DEEPER™ guests get above average results?

WHOLE PERSON APPROACH
Fresh Start Team works with a whole person, which means that it is not sufficient for us to know that you have a depression; we want to know what contributed to it and other symptoms that come with it. You may have heard that emotional issues hide in tissues. So we may be treating your back tension until we are blue in the face, just to realize that the main contributing factors are emotion-related. Or your back pain may simply be brought upon by a constipated and sluggish bowel pressing on the pelvic and spinal areas. And vice versa, physical pain may cause depression, which may be alleviated or completely disappear on its own once the inflammation is down.

INDIVIDUALIZED ONE-ON-ONE SERVICES AND CUSTOM HEALTH DRINKS PLAN
As you understand from the example above, the solution in each case will be very different and not what it may originally seemed to be. It is important that you are open to every aspect of healing (physical, emotional, habits and detox) and to deal with what’s underneath that dis-ease label, called Arthritis, Anxiety or Marijuana Abuse. After professional health assessment and carefully studying your health profile and personal goals, you will be offered an individualized spa treatments, health drinks and supplements plan for your approval.

Professional Guidance gradual and safe healing
GRADUAL HEALING AND PROFESSIONAL GUIDANCE
We will prioritize the areas or organs of focus depending on the severity. After which we will create a plan with INITIAL THERAPEUTIC FOCUS, focusing on the worst areas and start peeling the layers of this onion. Once one or several main areas are stabilized, we’ll move to working on other areas/organs. Or we’ll work on the same area for the duration of the program, if this is a major issue and needs more attention. NOTE: We cannot work with all areas at once, or your body (and you!) may get overwhelmed.

MULTIPLE HEALING METHODS, MULTIPLE THERAPISTS EXPERTISE and MULTI-FACETED HEALING STRUCTURE
The same condition may be caused by two different causes, and more commonly one condition may be caused by multiple causes accumulatively. This is why the cause of disease is considered unknown! Because it is rarely one thing. We use MULTIPLE HEALING METHODS, MULTIPLE THERAPISTS EXPERTISE and MULTI-FACETED HEALING STRUCTURE. Since more than one thing caused your health problems, we cannot count that one thing will work for them!

 

COMMITMENT TO YOUR HEALING
When you come to the Fresh Start program, there will be a very simple and clear process to follow. It is very important that you commit to it and follow the guidance. You gotta work on yourself to get well and be an active participant! It will largely predetermine the depth of your results. We are here to support you and adjust the protocols, and we do our best to meet everyone’s individual needs, but you need to show up, take your drinks, visit classes, work with practitioners, communicate – whether you have a good or a bad day. Healing is a journey and we are here to help on you on it.

Disclaimer: Though Fresh Start guests usually get amazing results, we cannot guarantee recovery from any specific disease or symptom. The results are individual and depend on many factors, including program length, type of condition, its severity and personal commitment to the process.

Healing Process: How do we guide you through it?

At Fresh Start we work with each guest individually on assisting them in reaching their unique health goals. Over the years we have developed effective and safe programs, including Professional Assessments and Guidance and an Individualized Healing Path™, consisting of One-on-One Treatments with experienced natural health specialists and body workers, as well as Custom Healing Protocols™ formulas to help you heal at a deeper level.

It is natural for someone to wonder if they can do a detox like our whole body cleanse at home by themselves.

Detoxification can be done at home and there will be benefits from doing this, IF you know how to do it right and can discipline yourself to do and not to do certain things.

Basis of All Detox Programs

A detox program typically includes either some sort of fasting/semi-fasting (decrease in food consumption) or diet alteration resulting in decrease of calories, processed foods, coffee etc. – in combination with or without specialty herbs or supplements. The idea is to lighten the toxic load on your system and to let it catch up on the housekeeping chores that it normally does not have a chance to.

It Can Be Hard To Stick To Cleanse/ Juice Fast On Your Own

Some of the guests in our programs have shared that they have tried different things at home and could not reach the results they expected because they were not able to be as faithful in following the program as they could while with us. The reasons are multiple:

  • fear of/ unpleasant emotions around idea of fasting;
  • fear or experiencing detox symptoms;
  • demanding routine of a family life;
  • non-supportive family member;
  • feeling guilty about “pampering oneself” when everyone works hard and needs you;
  • potent food smells around the house activating digestive juices;
  • difficulty to concentrate on the preparation of drinks;
  • feeling of hunger or hunger pains;
  • multiple distractions;
  • difficulty to stay away from business and to-do mode, in order to completely relax;
  • not knowing what to do in the free from the cleanse drinks time;
  • social events around food;
  • inability to de-digitize.

Time Is A Factor

Detoxification is rewarding but time consuming, and by an exception of a few very mild cleanses it is not something you should do while carrying on with your normal routine: your body just needs a chance to unwind and rest when cleansing. Unless you can with a purposeful intention spend several days doing nothing but cleanse planning and produce shopping, juicing, drinks or special foods preparation and relaxing, it might become quite a burden, especially without expert assistance.

It Is Crucial to Detox in the Proper Way!

When you are detoxing, many toxins are released into your bloodstream, and if your body is not able to eliminate them properly, they can be reabsorbed and do more harm than good. You must know how to prepare properly and not do harm to yourself during your cleanse.

How We Can Help

Fresh Start Health Retreat has been specializing in guided advanced body detox for many years. We can provide that expert assistance, as well as a supportive environment for your detox. Our Detox Programs include a variety of different cleansing drinks, consisting of freshly squeezed juices, herbs and other ingredients. Our formulas are custom-built and carefully tested. The combination of vegetables and fruit that our blends consist of are specially chosen for their cleansing and healing properties. Additionally, if you are afraid to fast, we have an option of healthy eating retreats that are mildly cleansing and very effective. You also can choose the full package: advanced whole body detox and to continue on the therapeutic eating program after.

Our Detox Juice Fast

Your entire digestive system will receive a thorough flush and a thorough inner scrub. The cleanse includes fibre drinks, which miminize detox symptoms and ensure speedy toxins elimination.  Fiber is a magic sponge able to absorb several times more toxins than its own volume. Additionally, our special parasite cleanse and Candida cleanse formulas are designed to get rid of unwanted residents of your digestive tract and blood.

Our whole body detox and juice rejuvenation program is unique in many ways, with elements that cannot be recreated at home. First we have many things that you probably do not have access to at home:

  • We create a well-thought through structure and provide professional guidance so needed for your success
  • Steam bath increasing speed with which toxins leave blood and lymph
  • Someone preparing drinks every 2-3 hours throughout the day and serves them within 30 min from preparation, each one fresh – on eating days a chef that every day ensures that only good things go into your body and takes time to create a balance of proteins, carbohydrates and fats at each meal
  • Wheat grass juice (unless you know how to grow wheat grass and have a special juicer)
  • Over 40 additional spa services enhancing the results and wellbeing: massage, colon hydrotherapy, infrared sauna, steam, honey and fruit facials and more

(Please note that our spa services are not included in the package prices and are provided for additional fees.)

Here Is What Else Is So Different About Our Detox Programs

Specific and deep cleanse of various organs. Digestive system, liver, blood, lung and other specific cleanses will be included in your program, if you choose ad advanced whole body detox.

The setting provides ideal conditions for complete rest: physical, mental, emotional. 99% of cleansing actually takes place in the mind. To allow your mind to orchestrate the job, you need to get away from chores, phone, TV, worries and hustles and bustles of the home life.

You get expert coaching by people who understand the process very well and who can explain what each particular juice is for. They will answer your questions, help with any concerns should they arise, and will guide you step by step.

You will be immersed into a group environment, where everyone is committed to the same goal. The goal of working on one’s health, changing one’s lifestyle, simply saying getting a Fresh Start.

You are coming to the program that is nurturing, stimulating, warm, at times challenging, and just fun. This is the most healing of all aspects when it comes to a successful program. Just about all of our guests tell us that the most wonderful advantage they had while staying at the centre was a personal touch. We do everything possible to create a family environment and a place of growth and peace.

You get priceless health education. A lot of people who hear the information that is presented during their programs say they had never heard anything about these topics or never understood health principles on such a deep and personal level before. We consider this part of our program the most important and life-changing.

Finally, you are coming to a transformational program. Many of our guests say that they have had a paradigm shift; that they will never be the same after the program. This is because of the energy, knowledge and experience that every person on the team generously shares with you from the heart; it is because of the temple, a healing place that is naturally created at the Fresh Start each session; it is because of every step and realization that brought you to the decision: I had enough of being unwell and am ready for a total health and wellness makeover.

We would be happy to give you a free health consultation to discuss your particular situation and whether/ which health retreat would be beneficial for you.

Recorded Educational talks. Daily LIVE check in’s with one of our specialists

Transformational workshops and group sessions run every week. Workshops include vision training and goal setting, functional range conditioning and functional fitness (14+ days only)

To work around your children, work or other commitments, you will have the flexibility to decide what time you consume your juices

YOU decide what you want to do, when you want to do it.  Do as much or as little as you like

HOW IS A SPECIALTY PACKAGE CREATED?

Before your arrival the Program Director and all Health Practitioners carefully study a health profile of each guest. Your Program Director or other dedicated health professional will prepare for you a suggested individualized Health Custom Package, taking into consideration:

  • your individual main health goals
  • additional areas of focus
  • current health conditions and possible contraindications
  • support of the overall wellbeing
  • safety, gradual healing and intensity of therapies
  • ideal spacing and sequence of services for optimum results

You also may be assigned a Specialty Drink or Formulas for organ support or more advanced cleansing of a specific body system, if this is necessary.

During your stay all Practitioners will regularly exchange information on your progress, to help you more effectively, and the Program Director will be assessing your progress and adjusting the process, as necessary.

Do any of these apply to you? If yes this package is for you.
Do you feel that you haven’t been recently taking time to stop and smell the roses?
Have you been working so hard that work became your identity?
Have you been dreaming to put your head on a pillow and to sleep for an entire week?
Do you need to rejuvenate your senses and feel your body again?
Do you crave for a life break to sort things out on your own?
You have been very healthy, but just can NOT squeeze the time for yourself.

Main Goals of the Detox and Recharge™ Focus:
Detoxify – Give your body a chance to catch up on a back log, tune up GI, flush the toxins.
Breathe –Take a few breaths of the healing ocean air, journal and walk on the beach.
Move – Keep your blood flowing with exercise, yoga and nature walks.
Learn – Watch food demos, and listen to the inspiring health and emotional well-being classes.
Un-digitize –Take a break and come to a place where the phone won’t be ringing and you won’t have to take care of things.
Recharge yourself-Each therapy, each drink, each component accumulates and helps you regain energy and feel much better. It feels awesome to have the energy back!
Nourish Your Body and Soul – Add some cell hydration with flavored water and delicious vegan organic foods-the perfect ingredients for recharging of your batteries and rejuvenation that your body, mind and soul need.
CONDITIONS THE DETOX AND RECHARGE™ FOCUS MAY BE BENEFICIAL FOR:
This package is not designed to assist with any health conditions or symptoms. If you would like to work on your health, while rejuvenating, please check-out our Physical Health, Emotional Wellness or Habits Repatterning™ Specialty packages.

 

Why Body Detox?

Many prejudices and misconceptions surround the concept of body detox. It is often associated with obsessed health freaks and hypochondriacs. Some object that normal healthy people do not need to detox. This is 100% true… in theory.

Unfortunately Most of Us Are Not “Healthy People”

We have become so accustomed to minor aches and pains that we consider them normal, something to put up with.

One aspect of good health is absence of pain, aches, depression and minor illness. How many people do you know who have pink skin, healthy teeth, nails and hair, breath that smells fresh at all times, are never bloated, that have a bowel movement after every meal (which is normal)?

A body cleanse can make a huge difference to how you feel. The whole body detox is a must for those who want to rid their body of heavy toxins or want to assist health restoration.

Who Will Benefit from Detox?

Besides bringing great benefits for those who detox simply for maintenance, as well as for people with mild to moderate health conditions who want to improve their health condition fast. Detox is especially beneficial for those who have quit smoking or wish to do so, those coming for after-cancer treatment recovery, those who were short-or long-term exposed to chemicals, and everyone whose main concerns are Candida and sugar cravings.

Why do we include Gentle Whole Body Detox™ as part of the Core program?

It helps reset body metabolism, lose weight, cleanses your taste buds cleansed which improves attractiveness of the healthy foods. Plus removal of tons of toxins will help the body absorb nutrients more efficiently. As well you will be more sensitive to “I’m full” signals from your body, feel more satisfied and better able to savour healthy food. The cellular re-nourishment period allows a proper integration of healthy foods (by the end of 21 days, your taste buds get quite re-trained and you thoroughly start enjoying the taste of health), and provides in-depth education on how to make lifestyle changes after returning home.

Our Gentle Whole Body Detox™ Cleanses

Many elements of the core program have powerful cleansing properties. During your stay you’ll experience a Mild GI cleanse through fibre in organic raw vegan foods, exercise and rehydration with lemon water and non-medicinal herbal teas. Wheatgrass shots, served twice daily on weekdays, will assist you with liver cleansing. Bacteria from fermented vegetable drinks and probiotic supplements, served with meals, will be assisting with elimination of unwanted bacteria and parasites, as well as balancing of microflora of the colon. Daily steam bath with cold water treatments and aromatherapy will detoxify skin, lymph and lungs.

In addition, you’ll be served a variety of herbal cleansing formulas aiming to assist with cleansing of specific organs. Our full gentle herbal cleansing cycle is 21 days. Sequentially, you’ll receive 3 to 4 days of each GI, liver, blood, kidney, small intestine and joint cleanses.

If you come for less than 21-day, you’ll receive the teas that are scheduled for the time of your stay. Which means you will only get some teas, and they may not go in the sequence as below.

List of Gentle Cleanses included in the 21-Day Core Program:

Day 2-4: Digestive Cleanse

Both health and disease starts with digestion. Foggy brain, bloating and bad smell from the mouth all may originate from the clogged bowel. This effective blend, prepared with unique 12 unique herbs will be tonifying and gently removing toxins from your bowel.

Day 5-8: Liver Cleanse

As we are bombarded with stress, chemicals, rich fatty foods, maybe even alcohol or tobacco; our liver’s bile stops flowing freely, which can lead to stone formation and may manifest in light coloured stools, difficulty digesting food, skin eruptions and insomnia . Our custom-made liver cleanse will help your liver  restore its function and get rid of the accumulated old bile.

Day 9-11: Blood Purification

One of the symptoms of blood toxicity is headaches. The powerful blood cleansing formula we offer will assist you in purifying blood from parasites and other toxins. This formula, along with kidney cleanse, is served only for the 14 and 21-day guests.

Day 12-15: Kidney Cleanse

Low vitality and energy have been linked to kidney malfunction in Chinese medicine. Being responsible for the pH balance and water distribution in our body, kidneys deserve your close attention. In addition to this formula, flush your kidneys with an abundance of restructured water and lemon water during your stay with us.

Day 16-18: Joint Cleanse

Joint health is often compromised by dehydration, lack of exercise and high protein diets. The components of this formula are designed to assist with dissolving and extracting of the uric acid (byproduct of the protein digestion causing irritation in joints) and other toxins from joints. In addition to this, exercise and water will provide your joints with other components they need for proper function. This formula, along with small intestine cleanse, is served only for the 21-Program guests.

Day 19-22: Small Intestine Cleanse

This custom-made cleanse is used to assist the body in softening and removal of the toxins of the small bowel.

 

Daily (2-21):  Parasite Cleanse

The transport and non-thorough washing of produce are just two common ways of getting parasites. Ridding your body of those unwanted tenants is a corner stone of health restoration. Our custom made formula served daily helps eliminate all stages of parasites: larvae, adult species and eggs. It will help you effectively eliminate parasites from intestinal tract, blood and other body organs.

Daily (2-21): Hydrotherapy Sessions (Lung, Lymph and Skin)

Our daily steam baths and cold water treatments, combined with aromatherapy, greatly assist in the detoxification process. The steam sauna increases circulation and removes toxins from your body, as well as promotes strengthening of the blood vessels, purifies skin, lungs, and boosts immune system.

In addition to the Cleanses above included in the Core Program, more Advanced Cleanses are available as part of Specialty Go-Deeper™ Packages.

Our Cleansing Principles

  1. Safety

This is principle #1 at Fresh Start. This is exactly why the cleanses included in the Core Program work very gently and gradually. During the program our experienced Program Director will guide and assist you daily through the process..

  1. Effectiveness

Many people who have participated in our detox programs feel results and improvements for a few weeks, months, occasionally even years after. We do not simply give you a number of drinks, we offer you a system that is well-tested, well-thought through and which works every time, when thoroughly followed.

  1. Release toxins moderately fast, eliminate them as fast as you can

We use a variety of methods to ensure that this principle is observed, which minimizes detox symptoms, such as headaches and nausea. Many of our guests noticed that they went through the program much easier than they expected or than when they tried to detox at home or using other methods. To make things even smoother and more productive, we highly suggest you follow our simple program preparation guidelines, especially if you have moderate to more advanced health conditions.

  1. Support all major elimination organs

The entire structure of the program is designed to support the organs that take the biggest load during cleansing. These are organs of elimination, such as colon, lymph and liver. Our program structure is designed in a way the function of these organs is supported and enhanced.

Weight Loss Management as Part of Your Program
Let’s Face Facts: There Is No Such Thing As Permanent Weight Loss

ORIGINALNI SAJT…

Depending on which weight loss retreat, spa or fat farm you choose, you may lose 2, 20, or even possibly 30 or more pounds. However, to lose as much as the desired goal most of us have, you would have to stay at the retreat for at least 3 months. Even if you did that in spite of cost and length of time, there is no guarantee that you would keep the weight off, even to the end of the year.

So Why Bother With A Weight Loss Retreat?

First, although you should put aside unrealistic expectations, you can still get rid of some unwanted pounds and to start feeling better about yourself. At least, in the words of one of our program participants, you “will still feel like a rock, but a lighter rock.” This will revive your faith in success and will free up a lot of energy that you can use to work on your health and to think more clearly, and also to help you to catch that ‘nasty’ willpower by the tail and say: “Hey, I am ready for change.”

Secondly, at the weight loss spa retreat, you lay a solid foundation for your future health journey. You will learn how to make healthy meals (you actually get to taste them), and you will meet face to face that stranger that everybody talks about without ever truly getting acquainted – exercise. You will get inspired, motivated and will end up feeling positive about the change. In short, you’ll get a great push.

Thirdly, and most importantly, you’ll discover who you are not. Everybody knows that weight gain starts in the brain. Unless you get rid of all kind of junk beliefs about yourself, the progress will be slow if not impossible. Addressing the emotional causes of weight gain and learning stress-coping techniques with various classes and activities, or private sessions with a counselor/life coach should be part of your healing.

How Can Our Weight Loss Program Help?

#1 We believe that healthy nutrition is the most important of all lifestyle aspects for weight loss

Many people think that exercise is the key. While we do not undermine its importance, you may know at least a few of those who exercise into a bloody sweat in gyms yet stay the same weight month after month.

This is because the body is very economical in its use of resources, and as soon as you go on an exercise campaign, it starts increasing your appetite. It then slows down metabolism and creates “extra” storage so it can pack on every bit of food you eat during your “free points bingeing moments” to make sure it prevents you from starvation next time you restrict your calories. Unless you change what caused weight gain in the first place, can you truly see a long-term change?

#2 We do not believe that restricting calories or the amount of food you eat is the answer

When your body gets all the nutrients it needs it shuts down hunger. If you overeat, it is because you do not satisfy all your body’s needs regarding healthy glucose, fats, vitamins, proteins, phytonutrients, enzymes and water. We are overfed and as a result malnourished, because of the quality of many of our diets. Quantity does not matter – a body that is nourished well has better mechanisms for knowing when it has had enough.

Here is an example. Our body needs energy, and energy means carbs. We need them more than anything else (about 70% of the nutrients in the food we consume should be carbohydrates)! Our brain can run only on them and them alone, and yet we are told to avoid carbs like a plague. We restrict them, replace them with protein, starve all the cells to death from not providing adequate amounts of glucose and then desperately try to fight with a sweet tooth. Our body does not run on protein, was never meant to. Additionally, it will face all kinds of breakdowns if we attempt to eat huge amounts of concentrated protein: kidney failure and serious heart problems are extreme but not so rare complications of high protein diets.

While at the weight loss retreat, we help you develop a lifestyle program which will support your healthy weight based on an ideal ratio between carbs/proteins/fats for your level of activity while avoiding cellular starvation.

It is not the calorie count that matters the most, but their quality. This is what determines whether you gain extra weight or not. Your body will store toxins that are harmful to us in fat cells, so foods food of MSG and other unhealthy additives will make you gain weight, not large plates of salads (just google MSG-induced obesity in rats). If you wonder how this can be, just think about how many people with obesity one could see 50 years ago. It was rather out of the ordinary when people ate real food with fewer chemical additives.

It is what’s added to our foods that makes us gain weight. Calorie count here is a secondary consideration, and calorie restriction won’t solve the problem. It is like putting a jar with sour cream in front of a cat and hoping it won’t overeat on it. The additives in foods are made to make us crave more!

So Doesn’t It Matter How Much You Eat?

We are not saying that overeating is a healthy practice – It is a destructive habit. What we mean is this: As your body cleanses and restores itself, and you provide it with nutrient-dense foods, it will decrease the amounts eaten automatically. Even initially it is much harder to overeat on food loaded with fiber, minerals, vitamins and enzymes than it is on a SAD diet (Standard American Diet).

If in doubt, come and try our health retreat menu. Many people comment after a meal at the Fresh Start retreat: “I ate much less than I would normally, yet I feel so satisfied.”  And virtually everybody continues getting rid of extra weight as the program progresses. You’ll notice comments in our Testimonials about weight loss, even from people who weren’t here primarily for that purpose. Your body is happy to drop excess pounds when it is well-nourished.

#3 If there was only one term that would describe us, it would be Common-Sense Education

Our daily Educational Lectures and Videos are eye-opening and inspiring. These are just a few things you will find out:

  • Why Horses Are Never Constipated (And how to experience it yourself)
  • Why Calories Have Nothing to Do With Weight Loss
  • Which Deodorant You Can Have For Breakfast
  • How to Prevent and Reverse Cancer, killer #1 in America
  • And much more

Our lectures are in-depth, scientifically grounded, and at the same time personal and empowering.

#4 We will organize workouts for you, which are definitely an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

An experienced fitness trainer will also provide you with a continuation program to keep you going when you go back home.

#5 We will share various stress-coping techniques with you.

In finding the cause we find the cure. Weight loss is not a disease. For most women and many men, it is not even a lifestyle problem. Grief over a loss of a loved one, insecurities, long-term family conflict, hatred of yourself or a tendency to get into abusive relationships, all may be a starting point. Understanding the cause of a behaviour pattern at a very personal level, relaxation, meditation, as well as cultivating motivation to change during your weight loss retreat will help you make necessary changes when you go back home. We have a series of workshops dedicated to dealing with stress and healing emotions. If you need deeper work, you will have an opportunity to book private classes with wonderful emotional well-being specialists.

Whole Body Detoxification Helps

#6 We will use a very thorough detox program to cleanse toxins from your body, helping to optimize your body’s metabolism.

If you choose the program with detox days: We use herbal teas, specially designed drinks, freshly squeezed juices including wheatgrass juice and live (raw) foods to reach this goal. Spa therapies, such as ear candling, colon hydrotherapy and massage (and many more), enhance the program and are available for you on site.

Everything we do comes from the heart. If you would like to experience a personal touch, unconditional love, and acceptance, then our caring team, personal approach, and small groups are here for you.

Begin your journey now, not tomorrow. Making the instant decision to take the path of health will change your life for the better here and now. There is still a ways to go, but remember: you are predestined for success when you believe in your goal. When you believe it, you will see it.

Caution! There is no quick fix for weight loss. We do not promise that after you visit our weight loss retreat and finish our program you’ll be free from all the extra weight you’ve accumulated over 20 to 30 years. It took time to reach where you are today; it will take time to recover.

We can only help you to start the process and acquire all the info you need to reach your goal. Everything after that depends on your motivation and action! Participating in our program DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE unless you are willing to commit to continuing on a healthy path. It is also important to make changes gradually and work with your medical or naturopathic doctor as you do them, especially if you suffer from an advanced condition. Our weight loss retreat program does not replace and does not intend to undermine any medical advice.

Cellular Re-nourishment™ means filling the body’s cells quickly with a large quantity of quality nutrients in order to provide them with resources necessary for self-repair and other essential functions. It may be very beneficial for many of us who do not normally eat healthy (or as healthy as we’d wish). Even though no one is starving in our society of abundance, just because the body is fed, it may still be greatly undernourished.

The foods and drinks we use for the cellular re-nourishment are carefully chosen and represent the most concentrated sources of vitamin complexes, macro and micro minerals, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients having multiple health benefits, such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.

At Fresh Start, for Cellular Re-nourishment™ we use the following means:

  • vegan, organic meals, with a large % living (raw) ingredients
  • green supersmoothies (enhanced with superfoods)
  • re-mineralizing hot soups
  • top-quality supplements for digestion activation (probiotics and digestive enzymes by Avena Originals)
  • living drinks for activation of the digestive tract and liver (fermented sauerkraut and beet juices)
  • supplements for hormonal support/ rebuilding (kelp and spirulina)
  • supplements and herbal drink for deeper sleep (magnesium citrate and specially-chosen herbs)

Why Cellular Re-nourishment™?

The body, without an adequate amount of nutrients, is like a car running out of gas – it cannot go far. With the body this effect is even worse: it may not stop functioning completely, but bit-by-bit the body will break down. It’s obvious, without proper parts your internal machine will be coughing, sneezing, and crawling instead of running 120 km per hour like it’s supposed to.

With the added nutrients, you can move mountains: you’ll have more stamina and endurance for exercising, improved clarity of thinking, restored healthy state, and will have healed many aches and pains. And very importantly – your body will start gradually cleansing and rebuilding cells that may not have been working optimally. This means a stronger digestive system and bones, better emotional and physical well-being, less mucous in sinuses, deeper sleep, shrinking of unwanted inches, and pounds loss. Start cellular rejuvenation today!

Why Do We Use Raw Food in Cellular Re-nourishment™?

As our main goal on the program is assist the body cells in recharging, rejuvenation and healing, and the raw food works best for this goal. This is why in our programs we use a large % of this type of food.

Taking a Load Off Digestive System and Freeing up Energy

Moderately and well functioning digestive system can break down and utilize raw foods more effectively than nutrients from a cooked meal because such foods are not changed from how they are found in nature, mixed with less other ingredients and not loaded with food additives. Due to presence of enzymes, they require minimum energy and time for their digestion process. In fact, according to research, your body can digest up to 10% fats, 20% proteins and up to 80% carbohydrates in the stomach passively, just using the enzymes from the raw food itself. The faster process of digestion takes an enormous load off the stomach, allowing the body to send the energy required elsewhere for cleansing, re-nourishment and cellular repair. This is why after a raw meal you do not feel tired or sleepy.

Optimization of Peristalsis of the Digestive Tract (Constipation Relief)

When consuming large amounts of raw foods, your bowel peristalsis works so much more effectively. When consulting a client with severe constipation, we suggested her to start drinking green smoothies daily. That was basically all she added to her diet, besides drinking more water. After a week the lady called us and said that she started having normal bowel movements every 2nd day after just 3 days (though before she had hard time going every 3rd day). When a healthy person eats 80%+ raw foods, his/her elimination will happen after each meal, which is normal, and brings a feeling of wellbeing (+ensures proper elimination of toxins).

However, if a person wasn’t used to eating a lot of raw on a regular basis, when he/she come to the Fresh Start he/she may occasionally experience a temporal slowing down of the bowel at first. This is related to adjustment of the digestive system to different proportions of essential nutrients and high fibre content, as well as removal of stimulants both from food and environment.

Weight Loss, Joint Cleanse and Assistance with Healing of Many Ailments

Any person who tried raw food even for a short term is familiar with lightness, clarity of mind, joint health improvement and ease of weight control it brings. You can eat large amounts of raw food and not to gain any extra weight. People with many health conditions notice significant improvements after starting eating raw. Diabetics especially benefit from this type of nutrition, as it requires production of less digestive enzymes and thus “spares” and optimizes work of their pancreas.

Detoxifying Properties

Pros and Cons of Raw Food

Pros

According to Dr. Gabriel Cousins, up to 50% protein, 80% minerals and vitamins, and 100% phytonutrients and enzymes are destroyed by heat. According to Dr. Furhman, who does not support raw foodist life-style, “up to 50% nutrients are destroyed when food is baked at high temperatures—and especially when it is fried or barbecued—toxic compounds are formed and most important nutrients are lost. Many vitamins are water-soluble, and a significant percent can be lost with cooking, especially overcooking. Similarly, many plant enzymes function as phytochemical nutrients in our body and are useful to maximize health. They, too, can be destroyed by overcooking.” Roasting nuts and baking of cereals for example, reduces availability and absorbability of protein. In spite of the above, very concentrated starches, such as legumes and grains, are best eaten cooked or sprouted to deactivate enzyme-inhibitors. Steaming and baking are the best methods to prepare some starchy vegetables, like potatoes and yams.

Cons

Many people share that they love comfort and a warming effect of cooked foods, especially in colder climates (in entire Canada :)). Additionally, often people who switch to 100% raw (or drastically change their diet in any way) do not give their body sufficient adjustment time, do not dedicate a lot of time to meals prep and learning about nutrient balancing. As a result, they’ll develop nutritional deficiencies overtime, may feel weak and get disappointed that though they felt great originally on this diet, they feel worse than before. Also if someone consumes 100% raw foods over 6-12 months, they start losing tons of weight, till a point they may become underweight. Body builders share that they need to be very creative to keep adequate muscle on raw foods and need to consume humongous amounts of “roughage” to match their active lifestyle. Most of them quit it. These are valid reasons why most people will not choose 100% raw food diets. And it is not that it is impossible to do it otherwise, but it is very very challenging in modern lifestyle conditions and just does not work for majority of people (and even most of those who say it works often do not tell you or themselves the truth how they are truly doing).

Raw Food for Extremely Compromised GI Track

Some people will say that raw food is difficult for their digestion. This is because when our digestive systems gets damaged by toxins and stress, it may become inflamed and weak. As a result, raw food may irritate the GI. Additionally, it may become challenging to break down cellulose covering raw foods, and they may experience some pain or discomfort when eating raw. Digestive difficulties are usually not limited to the raw foods. As a result of a compromised GI track, some people may lose ability to digest sugars effectively, others fat, even third ones proteins from their concentrated sources.

Usually, they say in such cases: do not eat raw foods, just eat soft foods. Or: avoid all sugars, they are bad for you etc. With this, often quality of foods is not taken into consideration, and lots of animal proteins and junk food may be included in a suggested list of foods. Sometimes people are starved for glucose until the point they start binging on “healthy” or not chocolate, or develop constipation from low fibre/high amounts of animal proteins, and experience other consequences of such limiting diets. However, what many people do not realize is that the issue here is not the food, but the current state of digestive health. In such condition even on a very healthy diet the discomfort will be present. And even if one starts taking tons of supplements at once, there is very little chance they he/she’ll be able to digest or absorb them. Though soft foods put into the body will not cause irritation, in a long run lack of fibre will aggravate the condition, due to poor GI peristalsis. You will not resolve digestive issues by merely excluding the foods that create discomfort, though it will provide a temporal relieve and mask symptoms.

Such advanced conditions of GI when one cannot eat raw foods at all are relatively rare. They need a careful GI rebuilding strategy, while meanwhile supporting of organs to help digest foods as well as it can. There is no quick fix here, so do not get discouraged if you start the process and it does not improve quickly.

Most people at this time have still moderately working digestion and need just to cleanse their GI and to make lifestyle changes to keep up good health.

Fresh Start Raw Food Philosophy

Even if the digestive system is not very efficient and the body cannot absorb that many nutrients from raw foods, it is beneficial to include a certain percentage of raw foods to ensure proper bowel work, regular cellular detoxification and adequate nutrition. Only in extreme cases of inflammation and raw state of GI and only for short periods of time avoidance of raw foods may be beneficial. And during that short period of time a person would be mostly fasting and taking freshly squeezed juices and broths, because anything else will simply not get absorbed or assimilated in such acute state.

Fresh Start does not suggest 100% raw food diet on a regular basis for most people. Without proper knowledge and very high quality nutrition (inaccessible to most), it is easy to develop lack of certain nutrients on this diet.

Yet eating raw food short term and expanding your diet up to 80% raw on a regular basis has huge benefits. If we know that a handful of nutrients get better with cooking, there is no doubt that most nutrients are most abundant in raw foods. Nutrients in raw foods are unadulterated with thermal processing and when served fresh – oxidation. Due to this, according to Dr. Joel Robbins, up to 30% nutrients from raw foods can be utilized by the body. In juices this ratio is even higher. Because of the fine structure, up to 90% of nutrients contained in a juice can enter and be utilized by cells. Flooded with these nutrients, your body is able to heal and restore the tissues – to accomplish cellular re-nourishment and repair.

We include in your program both: raw food and juice (mostly wheatgrass, as it is rich in GI rebuilding ingredients), as well as re-mineralizing soups. Using this combination, many of our guests are able to see great health benefits that they did not have a chance to experience before. We use some cooked foods, to assist with digestion and so that you could experience how you can realistically do it at home. Unfortunately, at this stage we are unable yet to take in people who cannot take large % raw foods, but we are working towards creating a special plan for them overtime.

At Fresh Start we’ll share with you how you can use benefits of raw food without developing nutritional deficiencies and mainly how to incorporate it into a crazy-busy city lifestyle most of us live now. Removing all philosophies, a raw food diet is simply consuming unprocessed food in their natural state. It is delicious, energizing, healing and our body loves it.

Why Do We Not Serve Meat, Eggs and Dairy at Fresh Start?

Animal products are highly mucous-forming. Excessive amounts of mucous create all sorts of problems, from sinus issues, common colds, to allergies, asthma and constipation. Consumption of meat may also cause feeling of anxiety and aggression, due to the hormones in the animal blood, especially in red meat.

Even though we understand that not everyone desires or is ready to transition to a vegetarian lifestyle permanently (just like not all our staff are vegetarians or advocate vegetarian lifestyle), incorporating it for a few weeks will benefit almost everyone. Vegetarian food allows your body to lighten its digestive load, remove excess uric acid from joints, which is a by-product of protein digestion, and clear the symptoms related to mucous accumulation.

Those who adhere to the paleo diet will find our diet meets their dairy-free and gluten-free needs. Additionally, a temporary vegetarian diet may be very beneficial to deal with certain health issues associated with high animal-content diets, such as weight control, heaviness, bloating and parasites. Many people with allergies will have a chance to see during the stay whether dairy and gluten may be a culprit in their health condition, and how it feels after their elimination.

Do We Teach Vegetarian Lifestyle?

For many people choosing vegetarian lifestyle is an ethical issue. If you desire to transition to this type of nutrition, we may assist you in how to do it gradually and successfully. Such change is possible, doable, and with a balanced diet may be very beneficial for one’s health. We highly suggest considering that option. However, due to the fact that it is not straightforward, and requires a skillful approach and a certain level of health, we leave that choice up to every guest and do not proclaim it a cure-all diet.

In the modern age it is hardly possible to find an ideal diet, and our goal is not to create one more panacea or above-the-head standard diet, but to affirm what already works for each person who comes to us, and to provide the knowledge that may help them to improve their diet further.

Allergies Accommodation (at an Extra Fee)

Our staff will be happy to accommodate your allergies and serious food sensitivities. All you need to do is to mention those on your health form in the field provided.

Note: Please note that the degree of accommodation of allergies is determined by how extensive they are. We may not able to accommodate a list of 20, but will happily do so if it is one or two items.

Meal Portion Control

Even though our meals with high raw food content have moderate amount of calories and you do not have to worry about gaining weight with it, your meals will be portioned and served on individual plates. This is to ensure that they are balanced in carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and to help avoid overeating. We also keep in mind that most people come to work on their health in-depth, so we ensure decreasing of the load on digestive system and letting the body use the energy for internal healing. In spite of portioning, our meals are quite filling and satisfying, so you should not worry about being hungry.

Cell Nourishing Drinks

Green Super Smoothies

We call Green smoothies a health booster drink. Full of fiber, rich in chlorophyll and other nutrients, these delicious drinks are among our guests’ favorites. A green smoothie is a delicate combination of a variety of nutrient-packed greens and yummy juicy fruits. In addition, for enhanced cellular re-nourishment, many of our green smoothies include superfoods, such as Goji, Incan Berries, Mulberries, Flax, Chia, Hemp and Sesame seeds.

Flax Tea

This yummy and comforting drink is among our guests favourites. It is very soothing and restorative for the GI track. Additionally, flax is a complete protein, which considering that it is a vegetarian source, makes it an invaluable food.

Hot Re-Mineralizing Soups

The hot veggie soups you’ll be served for supper are soothing for digestion and contain significant amounts of minerals. It is a great way to finish the day and to start calming down your digestive system, preparing it for rest.

Supplementation

Digestive Enzymes

Due to common issues with low Hydrochloric Acid, diminished thyroid function, and scant bile flow, many people have difficulty digesting foods effectively. To assist the process we have introduced digestive enzymes, which are served here along with meals. We use top-quality proteolytic enzymes by Avena Originals. Some people who could not digest other types previously, did well with these.

Top Quality Probiotics (acidophilus)

Repopulation of the intestines with probiotics helps increase digestive function and immune response, increases mineral absorption and lactose tolerability, as well as creates competition to harmful organisms, such as Candida. There have been some encouraging findings with regards to probiotics and high blood pressure, colon cancer, IBS, and cholesterol. The probiotics are also served with each meal and made by Avena Originals.

Digestion Tune-up™ and Liver Activation™ Drinks

Every 7th Canadian experiences heartburn at least one time per week. After adding bloating, IBS, constipation – we’ll realize that our digestive tract is crying for help. Specially-prepared fermented vegetable juices contained in our digestion-aiding drinks will help you digest foods more effectively, heal gut inflammation and to calm the stomach.

Adrenal and Thyroid Tonic™ (Hormonal Support and Rebuilding)

Our energy levels and interest in life endeavors are directly related to the functioning of our hormonal system. Because most of us live high-stress lifestyles, which directly affect our adrenals, thyroid and other hormonal glands, it becomes even more important to provide these glands with support and care. The hormonal system nourishing ingredients we use in our program will assist your adrenals and other glands in rebuilding and restoring your energy levels.

Herbal Tea for Deeper Sleep

Most people living in North America today have insomnia – occasionally or often. Even though in case of long-term lifestyle factors and underlying depression it may take some time to resolve sleep issues completely, this special tea has been very helpful to our guests on a physical level by calming the nervous system and assisting the body to relax into a deeper and longer sleep.

Cleansing your body is the first step to improving your health, increasing vitality, and restoring body and mind balance. 

Cleansing is designed to remove harmful toxins from the body where they are causing the problem. While many people focus on eliminating toxic food, which is important, but there are many other toxins that people encounter that are not food related. Our detox doesn’t just focus on removing toxic food; it looks at all the potential toxins a person encounters on a daily basis and aims to remove them as much as possible from the body and environment. Before a person begins a detox, it’s important to know what the potential toxins are and where they originate.

There are countless ways in which one can go about the detoxification process. A Google search of “How to detox” returns over 127,000,000 hits. The internet, while a priceless tool in the ability to self educate, can also be extremely daunting with the endless amount of choices at your fingertips.

If in need of a jumpstart, science based nutritional detox program, we offer a 3, 7, 14, and 21-day, proprietary blended kit to help those looking for a quality centered, nutrient dense alternative. More info…
