If you’re a fan of juicing, you would probably enjoy a juice fasting retreat. Set in beautiful locations such as resorts or natural areas, these retreats are the perfect way to relax, detoxify, and encounter like-minded people.
According to the All About Juicing blog, “Typically, these events involve ‘group fasts’ instead of individual fasting programs. You’re surrounded by other people who are in the same program as you are, so you get the benefit of their moral support and camaraderie.”
And of course, there are the nutritious juices. You may not have to go on a juice-only diet, as many retreats also serve raw or vegetarian cuisine.
The Juice Fasting Retreat Experience
Aside from juicing, there are usually some low-key, relaxing activities to occupy your time and help you make the most of this experience. Your retreat may include yoga and breathing lessons and meditation.
It’s also very likely you will find nature trails or gardens and other scenic surroundings perfect for walking or hiking.
Potential Health Benefits
Digestion is a process that takes up a significant amount of energy. When you’re on juice fast, your body takes a break from digesting and puts that energy to other uses.
This way, your body can address repairing any damaged cells, creating new cells, and removing toxins from the bloodstream.
If you commit to the juicing experience, you will enjoy weight loss, increased energy, mental clarity. You may even overall health benefits such as:
- better immune function
- ability to be free of nicotine or caffeine addiction
- improved blood circulation
- better digestion and freedom from IBS symptoms
It’s easy to see why so many people are opting for a juice cleanse retreat. It’s a peaceful and grounding experience that allows the body to heal and puts you on the road to better health.
