I was a typical diabetic type II on an American diabetic diet. I’ve had diabetes for three years and have not been able to control it with pills or insulin. I thought I was eating healthy before I came to the retreat, I followed the American Diabetes Association recommended diet: veggies, meats, little fruit, whole wheat type carbs, etc. I still struggled to keep my sugar normal. On a daily basis I was taking 28 units of basil insulin, and 60 units of insulin (that’s about 20 units per meal). After eating raw food at the retreat for 3 days, I was down to 25 units of basil insulin and 10 units of insulin. My sugar went progressively down, and after a total of 16 days on the raw diet I am down to 18 units of basil insulin and 10 units of insulin per day. So, in 16 days, I went from taking 20 units of insulin per meal to 6!
The snorkeling was absolutely amazing. The lava is dramatic and intense at the tidal pools and champagne ponds – it was nice to be centered between these two natural entities. The Volcano National Park tour was a once in a lifetime experience and it was spectacular to be a part of it. Also, I’ve saw my first mongoose! After 12 days, I feel mellow and at peace. A lot of the food practices I did in treatment were things I knew, but was unable to practice – it has been a good reminder of how you feel when you eat clean and raw. I lost 9 pounds in 12 days!!! I’m excited to replace junk dessert with raw healthy chocolate pie, and make other healthy substitutions in my eating. I feel very renewed and ready to go home and be better for my husband, my kids, and myself!
The protocol I was on at the retreat involved detoxification and a parasite cleanse, the result of which I lost a consistent 2 pounds a week and am now over 20 pounds lighter than when I arrived, losing some of the weight that was gained in the parasite years. I eat the same amount of food or more than I ever did and look and feel better and lighter than I have for years. With the raw food idea, I learned to eat totally different and initially spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I had a lot of compliments from friends and family telling me how good my eyes and skin looked and how slim I am, and wanting to know how they can become the same. This is a totally different way of preparing food and I love it and love eating this way. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone, and two of my neighbors may attend soon.
Having gained almost 15lbs over the past six months, I was also looking to gain healthier eating and exercize habits. Through a combination of raw foods and juice fast over 10 days, I was able to lose the emotional weight I had gained and begin to lay the groundwork for new and healthier habits. The retreat was an excellent gift to myself. It was a unique opportunity to dive deep into personal issues and challenges that get easily overlooked by the distractions of our busy, stressful everyday modern lives. The time spent in deep reflection was invaluable. Last but not least, the staff and fellow retreatees I met during my stay were wonderful. Their support made my experience all the richer.
