Weight Management, Diabetes Prevention & Heart Health Program

The Farm’s approach to the management of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and stress is to resolve the root cause of the dysfunction and to bring the body back to a natural state of balance. The Farm’s 6-night, 7-day program consists of a variety of targeted therapies that assist the body in giving up excessive fat cells where toxins are deposited by cleansing the internal organs with particular attention to the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs and skin.

The program includes the following:

  • diagnostics
  • detoxification
  • a nutritional program to rejuvenate the body at a cellular level
  • thermal and spa treatments
  • physical exercise
  • psycho-emotional sessions to learn natural ways to develop a healthy lifestyle

The Farm’s extensive approach includes an enzyme-rich diet that allows the various organ systems to rest and recover, resulting in improved absorption and metabolism; a thermal spa to take away the effects of muscle tension and stress and breathing exercises and mindful meditation like yoga designed to mobilize stagnant unhealthy gasses trapped in the digestive system. Psycho-emotional sessions focused on guided meditation and energy body nourishment are provided to address the non-physical components of the disease.

All programs at the Farm are conducted in collaboration with experts, licensed medical doctors, and highly experienced hospitality professionals. Guests will receive dedicated attention and service-from-the-heart to ensure a truly relaxing and rejuvenating stay.
