The Complete Retreat is a luxury spa resort and detox centre
Our destination spa resort in Spain is surrounded by breathtaking mountains - a stunning location for one of the most comprehensive retreat programs and health holidays available in Europe.
The living foods and juice detox program at The Complete Retreat follows the principles taught at Hippocrates Health Institute, Florida U.S.A.*
A Comprehensive Health Holiday
One of the ways the health holiday program works so effectively is in making the body more alkaline. A standard diet which is high in acid forming foods such as sugar, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, wheat and meat, upsets the bodies acid / alkaline balance. Without the accompanying alkaline minerals to buffer this high acidity, the body, (in a desperate attempt to keep the blood alkaline), leaches minerals such as calcium and phosphorous from the bones. Over time, this leads to many health complaints from arthritis to mood swings and osteoporosis (to name a few!). The low glycemic, high plant protein content of the food and juices, also helps stabilise blood sugar imbalances quickly. This is excellent for diabetics, hypoglycaemics and for those suffering from mycotoxins and yeast overgrowth.
Superfood juices to help the body develop and improve its immune system.
The full spectrum of nutrition that is found in superfoods such as chlorella, blue green algae, sprouts and wheatgrass, help to detox the liver and cleanse the blood. The oxygen, enzyme, chlorophyll rich content of the food and juices gives the body the best building blocks on which to strengthen its immune system, combat free radicals and increase longevity.
If you really need a health holiday for your body in 2010 then The Complete Retreat is one of the best luxury destination spa resort options available.
*The scientific research which is carried out on a daily basis at Hippocrates, along with the consistently impressive results obtained, have given the institute and outstanding reputation. Hippocrates is without doubt at the forefront of progressive nutrition for living foods, enzyme therapy and cancer treatment. It has been under the directorship of Brian Clements (who took over from Ann Wigmore) for the past 30 years.
