What to Expect  

You will have a vegetable soup on Saturday evening. You will be fasting from Sunday morning. The daily programme of juices is: 7.30am lemon tea, 10am - a jug of orange juice, 1pm - vegetable/green juice, 4pm - a glass of vegetable juice and at 7pm - a mixed vegetable broth which contains lots of minerals. It is a simple juice diet, with various supplements to assist your body with the detoxification process and to push toxins out of your digestive system. At all times we provide lemon water and herbal teas which you can take freely. If, for any reason you break the fast early, we are not able to provide regular meals during the fasting programs.  

Accommodation: Rooms are simple and basic with an attached shower and toilet room. An individual patio/relaxation/reading area adjoins each room. . Incoming calls are received at the main house. Although there is no mobile phone signal in the valley, a signal is generally found just a short walk up the hill. In the main house there is a central computer for internet access. The central clinic building houses the treatment rooms, the QRS Magnet Healing bed, Foot detox equipment, zapping equipment, a relaxation area and a small library.  

Therapies: On the first morning a schedule is open to make your therapy reservations. We will also show you how to use the Clysmatic, a gentle colonic cleansing system you administer yourself in the privacy of your bathroom.

Exercise, Meditation and Relaxation: Each morning at 8am there is Meditation and Yoga. Every evening there is meditation. Attendance to both of these is highly recommended as these are designed to assist in your detoxification process.

During the detoxification process, blockages and tensions held in the physical, mental and emotional levels of the body are released, these practices help you to let go of them, to relax properly and to sleep more comfortably. During the day you can relax, swim, have a therapy session, explore and walk around the area and help out in the organic gardens. There are a collection of videos and DVD's of related subjects and movies to watch. On alternate days the Sauna is on in the early evening. The Hot tub is on every day. One day each week we have an outing, weather dependent, either to one of the beautiful local Algarve beaches or to Lagos.


You should arrive on Saturday, the day your program starts.
Your room will be ready for you by early afternoon,
but you can arrive anytime during the day.

Departure is on the last day of the program, which for the two weeks and seven days programs is also on a Saturday . Departure for the 10 days program is on a Tuesday.

The day before the program starts we serve a soup in the evening and give some information about the program. For the seven days and ten days programs you will be breaking the fast on your own, but we will provide you with a healthy food basket to take with you and information how to break the fast. For the two weeks program we break the fast on day 11 and serve breakfast on the day of departure.
