We are excited to offer you such an incredibly valuable workshop as part of the retreat.
Benefits of the Juice Cleanse / fast method
The backbone of the retreat is the Juice fast. The specific Juice Cleanse formula used in the daily juices, during the retreat, provides an environment for the body to heal itself naturally. The Juice fasting detox floods the body with essential nutrients, live enzymes, and other phytochemicals, these fundamental building blocks of wellbeing, promote healing and replace deficient nutrients. We are all aware our modern diet diet is full of toxic substances such as pesticides, additives, preservatives and sometimes heavy metals. A juice cleanse helps the body rest from the intake of these toxins, while simultaneously allowing the body to go through its innate detoxification and reset process. People who undertake a juice fast report shedding excess weight, improvement in digestive system function and an all-over feeling of wellbeing. These results are due to the detoxification process and the juice cleansing fasts' ability to provide much-needed 'gut rest' while altering the gut microbiome favorably for enhanced weight loss, and removal of toxins from the body.
Clinical Studies on Participating in a Juice Cleanse Program
Scientific evidence on juice fasting remains anecdotal. However, clinical research studies have revealed the following encouraging findings concerning the medical benefits of juice fasting. In 1979, 16 patients with rheumatoid arthritis were put on fruit and vegetable juice fast for seven-ten days, followed by a lactovegetarian diet (1). One-third of the patients improved during the fast, while all patients deteriorated when milk products were reintroduced into their diet. Similarly, in 1982 patients placed on a juice fast saw a reduction in intestinal permeability, this intestinal permeability increased again with a lactovegetarian diet (2). Intestinal permeability is known as a 'leaky gut'. Leaky gut has been associated with inflammatory/auto-immune conditions including and not limited to Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (3,4). Another study looked at the effects of a three-day juice diet and found that it favourably altered the gut microbiome for weight loss. Furthermore, markers of oxidation and body weight reduced while wellbeing scores increased (5).
Juice fasting in the media
Juice fasting has made it to the big screen. You may have seen the documentaries Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and Super Juice Me. NaturoRetreats highly recommends watching both documentaries carefully before the retreat if you haven't seen them yet. These documentaries share the real-life stories of people who have benefited from juice cleansing. Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is an award-winning film documenting the transformation of Joe Cross – a person who was morbidly obese and managed to turn his health around by drinking only fruit and vegetable juice. The film Super Juice Me is a documentary made by author Jason Vale. The documentary follows eight people, who suffered from a combined total of twenty-two diseases, while they embarked on a twenty-eight-day juice fast. The documentary tackles conditions such as Ulcerative Colitis, Chron's Disease, Lupus, Asthma, Diabetes, Obesity, and more to improve or find a cure for all of these conditions. The results were transformational.The Juices
Our retreat juices are served in an extra-large-sized glass. They are specially formulated to keep you energised and satisfied. The juice recipes are full of flavour and will provide you with optimal nutrients while promoting healing. Naturopress uses the finest plant-based ingredients sourced from local organic farms in Australia. All of our juices are cold-pressed using a Cold Press Juicer. Cold-pressing juice guarantees you receive the maximum available vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and live enzymes from the fresh produce.Refund Guarantee

"I have been on a few retreats for my physical and mental health, and none have compared to this one. The host and teachers were so lovely and accommodating to everyone’s needs, with no hesitation, and with a constant smile. This retreat has healed my heart, something I’ve been dealing with for many years, the beautifully lead meditation, yoga, workshops, and breathwork sessions were invaluable. The juices were SO delicious and I will be implementing them into my lifestyle.
My heart is full, my body feels brand new, I’ve formed new habits for life as well as beautiful new friends. I will be going again this year and have even convinced friends to join me. They have all commented on how relaxed and healthy I look. Thank you with all my heart Charles."

"What an amazing juicing retreat! Enjoyed all the organic cold-press juices so much every day - didn't really feel hungry at all and feeling very cleansing! As a biohacker who loves to quantify data too, I was also excited to see my health markers/trackers (from HRV to sleep) been improving throughout the week!
The atmosphere and workshops were also great. I got to connect with other like-minded health-conscious people, while also having my own free time just to relax and read my own things.
Feeling very recharged and will definitely be back for another juice detox retreat with Naturopress! "
"One of the most life-changing retreats I have ever attended. The location was perfect - simple, comfortable, cosy, clean and nurturing. There were fireplaces in every communal room - yoga room - dining room and the very cosy reading room - perfect for a winter retreat. The 4 daily organic juices were very filling - I never felt hungry. The twice-daily sessions of yoga helped me improve my flexibility in just 5 days. The breathwork sessions have provided me a greater capacity to breathe deeply and appreciate every breath. The daily meditation and talks helped me to realign my values and highlighted the importance of a healthy body, mind and spirit. Also, an added benefit was I lost 3kgs in just 5 days. A huge thank you to Charles and his team of Angels. If you are looking for a reset and investing in your well-being do your soul a big favour and book one of Charles retreat - they are life-changing - namaste Helen "
