Richer Health Retreats is a sanctuary to rest, recharge, learn and reactivate the body’s natural ability to heal and reverse leading lifestyle chronic diseases.
You'll leave feeling stronger, healthier, energized and optimistic about your future. Our goal is to empower you with knowledge, new recipes, cooking and detox techniques, and positive habits that you can bring home and integrate into yours and your family's daily life.
We host our retreats in global locations that provide access to nature, walking trails, quiet relaxation spaces, culture, and other thoughtful touches to promote health and healing. All locations provide private and shared living arrangements.
You’ll receive breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks daily. All freshly prepared meals and vegetable juices are 100% organic, whole food, and plant-based, SOS-free and designed to reduce inflammation, repair your immune system and restore gut health - the foundation for reversing chronic conditions.
We pride ourselves on making “healthy food” taste delicious. Creamy, crunchy, chewy, imaginative and incredibly tasty—each meal, prepared by our chef, is a rainbow of colors and sensory delight. You won’t feel hungry or deprived in any way.
Depending on your health goals, you may like additional healing treatments such as massage, acupuncture, reflexology, and/or homeopathy sessions.
*The additional services need to be booked at least 3 weeks prior to the start of the retreat.
Your stay with us includes daily classes on the art and science of reversing chronic diseases, effectively working with your doctors, total body detoxification, interactive cooking classes, creative journaling, meditation, breath work, and yoga, including several sessions focusing on how to continue the Eat Real To Heal lifestyle once you return home.

| 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.
“As a cancer patient, I believe I now know what to do to ensure I beat it. Nicolette is a fabulous presenter and uses science to back up her teachings. Now it is up to me. I'm going home to give my fridge a makeover. I'm committed to Eat Real to Heal!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WE HAVE SOME ANSWERS...
Choosing a course of treatment is never easy. There are pros and cons to every option, and unfortunately, there are no guarantees that any particular treatment will “work” for every single person who tries it, whether it's Allopathic, Complimentary or Alternative. From direct experience working with thousands of clients from around the world, we've witnessed first hand that restoring your nutrient deficiencies, while detoxifying your body daily, benefits our clients no matter what other treatment options they are doing or have done.
We won't tell you which course of action is right for you. That’s a decision that only you can make. It’s your body, your cancer experience, and your life. As every individual is as unique as their diagnosis, we recommend reaching out to us to share your treatment protocol as certain protocols require you to suppress your immune system while other treatments benefit from eating well and detoxifying. Before booking with us, we'll support you in working with your oncology team to make sure our retreat is a good fit. As we cover methods such as shifting stress, calming the nervous system, trauma-release and breathe work to better the immune system, we know you'll benefit from your entire experience at our retreats.
Regardless of which type of approach you choose—traditional, alternative, or a combination of both—taking good care of your body is not optional. It’s a necessity. We encourage you to eat well and manage your stress levels as best you can. Enjoy organic food. Meditate. Walk. Practice yoga. Engage in activities that bring you joy and peace of mind. Through those types of positive, healthy choices, you’ll strengthen your immune system and make it easier for your body to heal from cancer.
Absolutely. We welcome all types of guests—all genders, all types of health goals, all walks of life. You don’t necessarily have to be battling cancer—or any other type of disease—in order to stay at our clinic. Even if you’re a strong, healthy, disease-free yogi or marathon runner, your stay with us will still be rejuvenating and inspiring. You’ll enjoy some of the best and most nutritious food you’ve ever tasted—and you’ll go home with new recipes, techniques, and habits, and a renewed commitment to taking good care of your health. Most importantly, you'll be set up with the exact Lifestyle Medicine protocol to follow in the event that you or a loved one ever was diagnosed with a chronic condition.
At Richer Health Retreats, we follow a nutrition and detoxification protocol called Eat Real To Heal, based on Dr. Max Gerson's principles of healing and also based on 200+ years of metabolic nutritional research, and based on current-day clinical research. Unfortunately, physicians today receive less than 12 hours on average of nutritional training in their entire 6-10 years of medical training. Your instructors have spent over 30+ years combined studying metabolic nutrition and have more than 15+ years of successfully helping thousands of clients around the globe reverse their diagnosed chronic illnesses. Nicolette is regularly hired by government agencies and corporate groups to teach physicians and other health care workers on how to use metabolic nutrition and detoxification to reverse lifestyle chronic conditions.
Everything that Richer Health Retreats teaches is based on sound science but also common sense - the entire Eat Real to Heal Protocol supports your body by:
— Flushing toxins out of your tissues and organs safely.
— Preventing any further addition of toxic foods laden with chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives.
— Restoring nutrient deficiencies via a 100% organic, vegan, immune-boosting, plant-based diet and drinking fresh juices to flood your body with enzymes, minerals, and nutrients.
With the Eat Real To Heal lifestyle, you’re giving your body the best possible fuel, thereby strengthening your immune system and making it easier for your body to rebuild its digestive and endocrine system, restore the microbiome, eliminate edema and inflammation, regenerate mitochondria, calm the nervous system, repair insulin sensitivity and ultimately reverse your diagnosed conditions.
Many people who try this protocol report feeling more energetic, less pain, and in several cases, clients experience complete reversal of their conditions which include autoimmune disorders, cancer, T2 diabetes, heart disease, mental health conditions and and many other serious illnesses.
The unfortunate reality is that there is no “guaranteed” cure that works for every type of illness, in every person, every time. But even though there is no guaranteed cure, that doesn’t mean we need to be helpless or hopeless. Fuelling your body with organic food, detoxifying and exercising daily, and shifting and reducing stress levels are all healthy, pro-active steps that you can take—either on their own or in combination with traditional Western treatments.
In the fight against disease, why not give your body every possible advantage—starting with a Lifestyle program that strengthens you instead of weakening you further?
