ABOUT US

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS

We are the first — and only — residential clinic in Canada that allows you to experience the Eat Real To Heal lifestyle based on Dr. Max Gerson's principles of nutrifying the body and detoxifying to reverse chronic degenerative illnesses.

The Eat Real To Heal protocol is an alternative, non-toxic option for treating cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, skin conditions, and many other chronic and degenerative diseases.

As a guest, you’ll visit our retreat centre to learn about and experience plant-based meals and juices, detoxifying coffee enemas, yoga, meditation, cooking classes, and wellness coaching/education, in an intimate group setting. To support your healing journey, we also offer additional treatments, including massage therapy, acupuncture, personal coaching and counselling sessions and homeopathy or naturopathy.

| FOUNDER + OWNER 

In his ‘pre-Green Moustache life’, Pierre’s career was consistently been infused with social interaction, teaching/education, involvement in the community and spending as much time outdoors as humanly possible. After the birth of their third daughter, Pierre and Nicolette both could feel the void in their community when it came to being able to provide their family with nutritious, local, and organic food. Pierre’s inquisitive personality, love for tasty food and natural kitchen skills made him the perfect partner to co-found the very first 100% organic, plant-based café
in Canada.

Together, he and Nicolette opened The Green Moustache Organic Café, an educational safe-haven where the community can gather around a bowl of warm soup, a salad bowl containing all the colours of the rainbow, or a boosting nutrient-dense shot of superfoods. As the Director of Operations, Pierre co-creates The Green Moustache’s delicious menu, manages both Whistler locations, and coaches all Green Moustache franchisees to successfully serving their community clean, healing food and juices.

“Nicolette is like an encouraging best friend who takes you by the hand and leads you into a new way of eating and living. She’s not preaching a gimmicky weight loss diet or a ‘miracle’ powder or pill. She’s preaching about real, unprocessed food that’s packed with nutrients―food that makes your body say,
‘Thank you. This feels so good!’

"Nicolette Richer not only makes the science of healing and long-term health easy to understand, she breaks it down into very consumable chunks (no pun intended). Every bit of what she recommends has been thoroughly researched and tested on herself and her family. This is not a fad diet. This is for real! And it works."
