Most questions and answers about our programs

Is a detoxification and rebuilding program. It consists of flooding the body daily with nutrients from about 15-20 POUNDS of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables daily. We offer our advanced nutritional therapies to support the detoxification process. As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs, in particular that of the liver, and the immune system to restore them to its optimal function. This program is similar to those clinics in Mexico offering the same program.

Many just come to our program to improve their overall health and advanced cleanse program. Most people stay 3-6 weeks here at the retreat. Our nutritional program utilizes the body’s own mechanism in the treatment of chronic debilitating illness. The Sedona Wellness Retreat is dedicated to the healing and prevention of chronic and degenerative diseases.

Used successfully for years in the supportive treatment for chronic degenerative diseases. The nutritional program consists of 10-13 fresh organic vegetable juices, 3 meals per day made of raw and cooked food and supplemental vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The therapy is based on detoxification using coffee enemas and nourishment of the body and restoration of the immune system.

When it comes to supporting the body, and for being an adjunct to chemotherapy, surgery and radiation, our programs has many advantages and benefits to heal and repair the body from the side effects of these treatments.

Our 2 Weeks or longer introduction is designed to maximize your chances of successfully continue the therapy at home. For added support and change we highly recommend the 4-6 weeks or longer programs for optimal results and benefits.

The program includes education, medical supervision, psychological & spiritual support, activities, motivational work and more.

Although the philosophy of cleansing and reactivating the body is simple, The Therapy is a complex method of treatment requiring significant attention to detail. While many patients have made full recoveries practicing on their own, for best results we encourage starting and practicing at the retreat center and taking back what you have learned so that you can continue with it at home.

It is rare to find cancer, arthritis, or other degenerative diseases in cultures considered “primitive” by Western civilization.Is it because of diet? The fact that degenerative diseases appear in these cultures only when modern packaged foods and additives are introduced would certainly support that idea. Degenerative diseases can be brought on by toxic, degraded food, water and air.

Supporting each important metabolic requirement by flooding the body with nutrients from up to 20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily. Most is used to make fresh raw juice, one glass every hour, up to 13 times per day. Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. Oxygenation is usually more than doubled, as oxygen deficiency in the blood contributes to many degenerative diseases.
The metabolism is also stimulated through the addition of thyroid, potassium and other supplements, and by avoiding heavy animal fats, excess protein, sodium and other toxins.

We accept most people that want to come and improve their overall health and life. We want to make sure that you are safe to travel and partake in our advanced programs. Must be able to eat, drink and eliminate normally, as well as be able to travel and take care of their personal needs. If you have major health concerns, and need considerable assistance, then you will need a more thorough evaluation to allow you in. For those in hospice care or in other advanced care systems, our retreat is not the right place for you. We are not a hospital or advanced care facility. All individuals have to take care of their own self care and general needs such as bathing, eating, drinking, dressing, going to the restroom, as well as be able to self administer enemas. We are not a 24 hour care facility and the staff and doctors are only there during the day for assistance and guidance.

A very important part of the therapy is frequent detoxification of the tissues and blood. This is accomplished through a variety of means, first and foremost through the use of coffee enemas 3-5 times daily.

It consists of flooding the body every day with nutrients from organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition to the meals and juices, patients are also taking 3-6 coffee enemas daily. The Coffee enemas are used to intensify liver detoxification. The metabolism is stimulated through the addition of iodine, potassium and other supplements. Animal fats, excess protein and sodium are avoided.

As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs.  In particular that of the liver, and the immune system is restored to its optimal function.

That boosts your body’s own immune system to support your body if you have cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. One aspect of our Therapy that sets it apart from most other treatment methods is its all-encompassing nature. An abundance of nutrients from up to thirteen fresh, organic juices are consumed every day, providing your body with a super dose of enzymes, minerals and nutrients. The enemas aid in eliminating the lifelong buildup of toxins from the liver.

Our bodies are being filled with a variety of disease and cancer causing pollutants. These toxins reach us through the air we breathe, the food we eat, the medicines we take and the water we drink. As more of these poisons are used every day and cancer rates continue to climb, being able to turn to a natural, detoxifying treatment is not only reassuring, but necessary.

With its whole-body approach to healing, our therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself – with no damaging side-effects.

Degenerative diseases render the body increasingly unable to excrete waste materials adequately, commonly resulting in liver and kidney failure.To prevent this, the therapy uses intensive detoxification to eliminate wastes, regenerate the liver, reactivate the immune system and restore the body’s essential defenses – enzyme, mineral and hormone systems. With generous, high-quality nutrition, increased oxygen availability, detoxification, and improved metabolism, the cells, and the body, can regenerate, become healthy and prevent future illness.

Anyone who tells you otherwise is not giving you the facts. We know that when you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment, choosing the best strategy for fighting your illness can be a bewildering task. Everyone claims to have either “the best treatment”, or “the only therapy that works.” In most cases your trusted family physician only has knowledge of conventional treatments, and is either unaware of, or even hostile toward alternative options. No matter how many opinions you receive on how to treat your disease, you are going to make the final decision on what to do, and you must be comfortable with your decision. Choose a treatment that makes the most sense to you.

Most therapies, conventional or alternative treat only the individual symptoms while ignoring what is ultimately causing the disease.The reason that our therapy is effective with so many different ailments is because it restores the body’s incredible innate ability to heal itself. Rather than treating only the symptoms of a particular disease, the therapy treats the cause of the disease itself. Although we feel the therapy is one of the most comprehensive foundational treatment programs for disease, we don’t claim it will cure everything or everyone.

Motivate, Empower, support and coach individuals to make positive changes in there lives, and to take responsibility for their health.

The clinical approach consists of detoxifying and nourishing the body, the mind and the heart. The most elegant approach is based on fasting and nutritional therapy. Fasting on water or juices or a raw food diet is the most radical and the most efficient way to treat and prevent most illness. The nutritional therapy is a stepping stone to address mental, emotional and spiritual issues that may create imbalance. To achieve this goal the following methods can be used: meditation, awareness techniques, guided imagery, movement. Adjuvant therapies such as hydrotherapy, intravenous therapies, vitamin supplements, botanical medicine and homeopathy may be used in conjunction with the nutritional therapy or afterwards.

Labyrinth at Sedona Wellness Retreat


There are a number of reasons as to why we are not licensed through the Non-Profit Gerson Institute Educational Group in San Diego. The main concern is that Gerson Therapy claims to have treated and cured cancer. So stating the Gerson Therapy means that it is a treatment that cures cancer. This is not allowed in the US and does not have any double blind placebo controlled studies and millions of dollars spent to publish this type of work. So the FDA does not approve Gerson therapy or similar therapies for the treatment of cancer as well as other diseases. That is why most clinics go to Mexico. Another reason is that we also offer other treatments and modalities such as water fasting, juice fasting and customized cleansing programs.

This is the heading

We can offer the same approach, and utilize the works of Dr. Max Gerson, use the same modality, offer the meals, juices and coffee enemas, but we are not allowed to use or promote the name, especially in regards to the treatment cancer. We are not allowed to state that we are treating or curing cancer. Some of the medical staff and supportive staff have taken the Gerson Institutes educational and training programs, and the physician Gerson training module 1.
