Many Healthy Retreats In One

We strongly believe we offer the best detox retreat in Canada. When you’re trying to quit smoking, recover from toxin exposure, kick sugar cravings, or simply strengthen your immune system to fight chronic illness, there are only a few health resorts to choose from that really understand safe and effective detoxification. We have every facility needed to provide you with a cleansing detox appropriate for your personal needs while you enjoy a healthy retreat surrounded by the beauty of the British Columbia rainforest and ocean shore.
Our wellness retreats are holistic, incorporating cleansing for the mind, body and spirit. A body cleanse diet is a good start, but when you do it in a refreshing ocean-side resort, supported by daily steam baths, meditation, yoga and much more, you’ll get much more powerful results for weight loss, detox, health and well-being. Our team of health professionals and our Naturopathic Doctor ensure that you detox your body safely and comfortably in one of the most beautiful health and weight loss spas in Canada.
Of course there’s usually weight loss – juice fasting alternated with an organic raw vegan diet is the best weight loss diet plan there is when your body is stressed by extra pounds. When you eat only the most healthy and nutritious foods while you detoxify your body, it frees your cells to dump fat. They’re happy to do so when your blood sugar is normalized and your body is receiving excellent nutrition.
If you’re looking for a medical retreat, you’ll want to read our testimonials. Many of our clients leave Fresh Start Health Retreats with a reduced need for prescription medication. Some eliminate it completely. We see high blood pressure drop, fatigue eliminated, symptoms of heart disease reduced, and many other health benefits. We’ll discuss medical conditions of concern with you before you register to ensure our program is suitable.
When stress and a busy lifestyle is wearing you down, our full range of spa treatments, healing therapies, healthy detox diet and detoxing drinks, beautiful Vancouver Island beachfront resort, relaxing activities and considerate staff will give you that chance you’ve needed to recover from mental stress, burnout, depression, fatigue, work stress and/or busy life obligations, and prepare yourself to return refreshed. Our longer health retreats include more spa services, and we customize those to your specific needs.
We have some amazing juice fasting recipes that are focused on relieving chronic health conditions and supporting detox cleanses. Because we’re familiar with the side effects of juice fasting, we incorporated it carefully so that your body is healed, rather than stressed. Our juice fasting detox alternates with eating days that include delicious organic meals, so you don’t suffer an uncomfortable extended fast or the discomfort you may have experienced previously on some previous “master cleanse”. The juice fasting results at Fresh Start really come through in our testimonials, and we strongly encourage you to read them.
There’s also a strong educational component to our detox programs. It’s important that you leave your wellness retreat able to incorporate healthy nutrition, fitness and other wellness habits into your daily lifestyle. We suggest you read our articles on juice fasting, body detox, weight loss, stress management, nutrition, and other health topics. You’ll find tips and recipes as well as information on the latest research in wellness.
We don’t offer a fitness bootcamp – our approach to fitness is more gentle and holistic. We will encourage you to try some simple yoga positions, and take walks in the cleansing fresh air along the beach or in our stunning British Columbia rainforest each day. If you’re up for more, our fitness room is open to you. If you’re considering yoga retreats, you might want to investigate our more holistic approach. Body detox prepares you well for any fitness program you might be planning to undertake. As you begin to feel better from your detox cleanse, your energy will rise naturally. A person who experiences vibrant health wants to move, and fitness comes more naturally after that.

Our Vancouver Island, BC health retreats are appropriate for couples, women’s retreats or singles that would like to do it in Canada.
