CORE PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Your Core Program includes vegan, organic, with a large percentage of raw foods (composed primarily of fresh vegetables, greens, fruits, nuts and seeds) and healing drinks to restore and nourish your cells. You will also experience gentle detox of the whole body; including the digestive tract, liver, parasite, lymph and other organs. Educational classes in the areas of healthy lifestyle and emotional well-being are included as well as guided meditations, yoga, fitness classes, hydrotherapy treatments and so much more. All this being hosted at eco-friendly Ocean Resort, located on a beautiful ocean-front property on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada.
Fresh Start’s Core Program has a balanced semi-structure and serves as the foundation for your Specialty Package during your 7-14 Day Jump Start™ or 21 Day Go Deeper Path™. Please expect that during your stay with us, you will be working as a group and everyone will experience a similar daily structure.
Core Program is very experiential and offers a great balance of relaxation, detox, education and other components that have been tested over the years. We put together many elements needed for your healing and organize them in an order and frequency that makes the program educational, well-rounded and yet light, experiential and fun in the same time. You neither should be bored nor overloaded with hours of repetitive fitness classes, meditations or something else. There is a lot of room there to enjoy the ocean breeze, to socialize with other group participants and to work on your individual health needs and goals.

What is Fresh Start Healing Structure™ and How You May Benefit from it?
- Fresh Start Healing structure™ is a time-tested and well fine-tuned system that has proven to work. Every element is well-crafted, based on years of study, experience and guest feedback. Each program tool is being carefully polished for a long time until it is just right, and placed in its special place, in perfect combination with the rest.
- You do not just go from station to station, from treatment room to treatment room, from class to class, – we have designed a process that will lead you through a unique experience, a special journey, where you are guided, and where your body needs are valued and supported.
- Learn how to create healthy routines and let yourself be immersed in a supportive and safe environment that will help you form new habits and provide you with necessary tools and ideas.
- This Core Program is an important foundation for the GO-DEEPER™ areas of focus, which help you work on your individual health goals. Without its nutrition, exercise, detox and other invaluable components, the results of individualized protocols would be much less.

Special Conditions and Limitations
Can I Book Just The Core Program Without Go-Deeper?
Yes, the Core Program is available without Go-Deeper. If you currently have no health issues and need to recharge, reset, or you are on a tight budget, it will be a great option for you. It is also a good choice if you just need time to rest, rejuvenate and are not ready to go into a deeper healing. After the core program you will feel energized, refreshed and renewed from giving your body, mind and spirit the care they deserve.
IMPORTANT! If you are in need of deep health restoration, if you have a lot on your plate, and you can afford it, the addition of Go-Deeper Packages is highly suggested. The purpose of the Core Program is education, rejuvenation and recharge, and we are not able to work with your health conditions without Go-Deeper.
Note: Certain terms and limitations apply to this program. If you consider Core Program Only, please carefully read the important information below:
Core Program includes:
Meals, health drinks and and various classes. It is a very well-rounded package of various components that includes a variety of components, from yoga to meditation, from food preparation classes to emotional wellness workshops, from nature excursions to art classes, and much more.
Core Program + Professional Assessment, creation of Individualized Health Plan & all services and custom protocols included in your plan, as well as guidance and readjustment on the plan, as needed.
By the name of it, the GO-DEEPER™allows you to focus on your specific health issue, be it Weight Loss, Post-Trauma Recovery or Wine Addiction. When you buy GO-DEEPER™, you gain expertise of people who have years of experience of working with guests suffering with various health challenges and effectively helping them to get their health back. This expertise is very rare (because there are no similar health retreats in Canada) and may help you reach your individual goals faster.
Yes, you can book any one-one one services we have available for the Go-Deeper Guests, except professional assessments, individual healing plan creation and individualized post-program plan, as these require deeper evaluation of your current condition.
- Max 1 appointment per day (=6 treatments per week)
The Core Program is very very comprehensive in itself, you will get a lot out of it, learn many helpful tools. But keep in mind that if you add too many services without thorough consideration of their combination and sequence, you may put your body under unnecessary stress. So this would not happen, there will be limitation on the number of treatments you can do.
2. Appointments are pre-purchased before arrival, at the time of registration.
3. The appointment requests for week 1 must be sent min 1 week before your arrival and cannot be changed after being requested.
We are not a typical spa, do not have a front desk service and are not able to accommodate changes quickly on the fly. Especially because they affect schedule of other group participants.
Disclaimer: All services are subject to availability of practitioners. If we are not able to book for you the requested service, we will substitute it with a similar service. Due to a deeper healing process and needed support, the Go Deeper Guests get a priority of bookings. If the availability of service is an issue, we may not be able to offer it to you.
Unfortunately, Custom Protocols are not provided on this type of program. The only exceptions are: evening adrenal protocol, NS tonic and Sleep Enhancing. Again, this is out of safety considerations, as we need to evaluate your health situation in depth, before adding any deeper healing elements.
Yes, anything that may be unsafe for you:
Advanced GI flush (called Isotonic) is allowed for this program, but with a condition that you book additionally 2 colonics (=colon hydrotherapy) on the same week, to ensure that your liver and other organs get adequate support with elimination of toxins.
If you have a contraindication for any service, or we see that the service of your choice may not be beneficial to your health, we will not be able to book it. Whether you are on Core Program only or on Go-Deeper, we will do a basic health intake before arrival. Though Core program gives you flexibility to choose and self-create your plan, we still need to ensure that it is safe.
If you come to Quit Smoking or recently quit smoking, you are required to purchase the Go-Deeper. Based on experience of working with this addiction, we’ve seen that it requires a lot of antioxidants, pulling therapies and other support, to detoxify your body safely. It also important to monitor the general toxic load on liver, lungs and other organs, which testing will help us determine.
The list above is not exhaustive, as there may be some other situations, where certain services may not be allowed or core program without Go-Deeper may be highly not suggested or contraindicated.
Because the first 3 days of each week are very busy with professional assessment and planning of Individualized Go-Deeper Plans, the earliest that you can put your request for the additional treatments is Thu, and the earliest you’ll be able to get a new appointment for the same week is Friday. These late requests are subject to availability of a therapist and no other treatments booked on this day.
Note: If you stay for 2 weeks, the deadline for the booking requests for the next week is the Friday prior.
Yes, you can upgrade for the Go-Deeper, starting with the following week. Unfortunately, we are not able to upgrade it within the same week your request it. Deadline request: Friday prior. But we do suggest a much earlier notice, because this would give us time to prepare your plan more thoroughly.
