arthritis and other
forms of rheumatism, are served the raw fruit and vegetable juices,
broths, herbal teas and healthy whole foods of their initial liquid
diet and fast breaking dietary regimen.
This is where the
core elements of our treatment program are found - an initial ten
day supervised raw juice, herbal tea and broth fast and at least a three
day period for breaking the juice, tea and broth fast properly and
safely. Following that period, we recommend a three-month
rejuvenation and rebuilding program that each faster can pursue at

up to three weeks, depending on the severity of the sickness and the

we determine a guest’s physical condition is to always conduct a
preliminary screening of all guests prior to
starting any guest on an herbal tea, broth or juice fast. This is a
physically non-invasive set of questions designed to determine a
guest’s overall state of health immediately prior to arrival.
Either I or another
trained person will perform the initial screening. We particularly look
for the following:
Patterns of waste elimination
Prior experience with fasting and bowel irrigation
nature cure therapy
Overall physical/mental/emotional status at the time of
Prescribed medications previously ingested or
currently being used
- Other important health status indicators.
Following the preliminary screening examination, a specific
course of action is decided upon with regard to the fast, solid foods,
arthritis pain relief measures and any recommended exercises,
hydrotherapy and other treatments.

appropriate physical and mental constitution to undertake
the fast. Although it has been proven conclusively that virtually
any arthritis sufferer can undergo some type of fasting program with
great benefit, there are many complications
that can arise during or immediately following a prolonged fast
of two or three weeks.
especially true when an arthritis sufferer has been taking cortisone or
gold injections or any other medication for an extended period, where
there may be actual or impending organic or systemic failure,
particularly involving the liver and kidneys. Also, many arthritis
sufferers must be careful about the types of liquids made available
during a prolonged therapeutic fast such as we offer. The
quality of the liquid diet is important.

weak constitution is immediately put on a prolonged fast, primarily

adverse physiological reaction such as intense pain or unnecessary

The same holds true
where a guest is not in the proper mental and emotional state to undergo
the rigors of a prolonged fast. Such a condition can continue to release
systemic acids and create ongoing tension throughout the body that can
act to undermine the goal and intention of our nature cure program. The
psychological atmosphere must be right in order for a guest to derive
maximum benefit from what we offer.

juices as the major ingredients of the fast. The fast is subsequently
