As several of our clients have contacted us stating that they wish to do a fasting & detox program at Moinhos Velhos this year, but cannot come in March, we are offering 3 more programs in 2014:

May 11-21, June 29-July 09, September 07-17.

Book early, there is a maximum of 14 participants in each program.

If you are still unsure of the benefits of a fasting diet click on "fasting benefits" or in the scroll bar to the left click on "BENEFITS OF FASTING" for a specific topic.
Now you have to select the right place for your fast. There are so many places and juice fasting retreats to choose from and many have glowing testimonials.
Of course, because most juice fasting programs work.
Any and all fasting and detox programs are somewhat beneficial.

For optimum results come to
Moinhos Velhos Retreat for Detoxification and
Purification of Body Mind Spirit.

We created the concept, 30 years ago, of a juice fasting and detox program for Body-Mind and Spirit. For many of the clients participating in our programs it has been a life changing experience.

With our combination of selected herbs and the Clysmatic colon hydrotherapy, your digestive system will be cleansed. To see what you can expect to eliminate go to intestinal cleansing.

Our location is unique. Situated in a tranquil valley in a nature resort, away from the traditional tourist areas, our retreat is on one of the 12 synchronic lines that only come together at 2 places, one in Tibet, the other at Damanhur in Italy. Our valley is one of the light centres on the planet, we were guided to it, and the thousands of small quarts crystals in the hills creates very special healing frequencies.

There probably is no other place on this planet with the same healing energies as Moinhos Velhos.
This is a place to Purify, Energise and Regenerate. (Don't panic! There is Satellite Wi-Fi in every room except yoga)

Program could change your life

In the book "The Transformation Power of FASTING" by S H Buhner,
Moinhos Velhos is recommended as one of the four retreat centers worldwide for an optimum fasting program.

"More Testimonials"

At Moinhos Velhos Spa for Health and Wellness Retreat, we offer detox programs with fruit and vegetable juices and vegetable broth. Our juices and broth are freshly made with primarily organic fruits and vegetables, mostly from our own organic garden and from local farmers. Between the juices various special herbs are taken to clean the entire gastrointestinal tract, eliminate toxins, heavy metals and parasites etc. from your system. Our Health and Wellness Programs will detoxify and cleanse not only your small and large intestines, but all your organs and cells. This cleansing will prevent disease and is the first step in restoring your body to optimum health. We have a safe and supportive environment where you will wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning and go to bed at night with the silence of the stars.
Next to the Barragem da Bravura, 13 km from Lagos and away from the regular tourist areas, our experienced staff will guide you and support you through the cleansing process. We start every day with yoga and meditation or Qi Gong, and end every day with meditation.

Juicing on the beach

Our goal is not only to effect a transformation on the physical level, but also on the Emotional, Mental and Spiritual levels. We have morning meditation, breathing exercises - pranayama and yoga asanas and we finish every day with meditation.

Yoga and fasting go hand in hand.
The yoga classes are suited to people of all levels. The combination of gentle moving, stretching and twisting together with deep breathing, speeds up the detox process. Through the practice of yoga one can find an inner peace and stillness, which reduces the toxic effects of stress and anxiety. Often during a fast, when the putrefied deposits are being eliminated from the system, old and sometimes forgotten emotions may surface. Yoga can help to deal with these.

Fasting is the oldest natural therapy for restoring health. Animals always fast when they are sick. Jesus was a great advocate of fasting and colon cleansing as described in The Gospel of Peace. Fasting is practiced and recommenced by most religions. Swami Sivananda encouraged fasting for physical, mental and spiritual purification.

Our   concept with the establishment of Moinhos Velhos Health Retreat and Wellness Spa was the creation   of a holistic health center for fasting, detoxification, cleansing and   purification of body, mind and spirit. We had personally experienced the   wonderful individual benefits of yoga and meditation, juice fasting, colon   cleansing, proper nutrition, holistic therapies and the combination of all these   in the proper environment would create a unique package, not offered anywhere   else, for the elimination of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual   impurities and imbalances, for detoxification and cleansing, thereby allowing   your system to establish perfect health and wellness.
