5-Day Hollyhock Retreat

Nicolette Richer & Hollyhock are joining forces.

From May 8-12th, Nicolette will teach a 5-day retreat at Hollyhock, Cortes Island

 

 

Imagine. After a beautiful journey over the ocean, you find yourself on a quaint island full of lush, tall green trees. You roll up onto Hollyhock’s campus and are greeted by friendly and welcoming faces.

 THE HOLLYHOCK PROGRAM

“Your body’s ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe.”

Step by step, the Eat Real to Heal retreat shows you the art and science of using food as medicine to reverse chronic disease, one bite at a time. This means you’ll eliminate chronic pain and inflammation, your energy will return to youthful levels, you’ll enjoy restful sleep, yes – you will lose weight and look years younger too – but ultimately, you’ll achieve optimal health so you can live a long and thriving life.

Learn the principles of the Eat Real to Heal Lifestyle, a program Nicolette Richer designed based on her experience as a former certified Gerson Therapy Home Set-up Trainer. This new way of eating -and living- is based on a 100-year-old metabolic nutritional therapy, that will rebuild your metabolism, kick-start your immune system, regenerate your tissues and heal your body through cellular nutrification and detoxification.

Take your health into your own hands and learn to prevent and reverse cancer and other chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol, skin conditions, Crohn’s, ME, allergies, asthma, arthritis, chronic pain, infertility, eye conditions and other autoimmune disorders and degenerative conditions.

With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians now being diagnosed with cancer and heart disease in their lifetime, 1 in 4 being diagnosed with other lifestyle-induced chronic illnesses such as Type II diabetes, autoimmune disorders, infertility and, more, the time is now to take your health back. And there’s good news! Medical research shows that we can cut these rates by 90% and more by adopting a plant-strong lifestyle and engaging in moderate exercise. Even better, you’ll be able to share your new knowledge and lived experience with family, friends and other loved ones to help them reverse their illnesses too.

Join us today to learn a new definition of what really constitutes “healthy food”. Never again will you want to start a diet or a cleanse after having experienced the Eat Real to Heal Lifestyle at Hollyhock.

You’ll go home with the skills, knowledge, formula and inspiration to keep on thriving in health and share all you learned with your family and community.

 

LOCATION

When you walk into the garden you are dazzled by the colours, smells, and sounds of the birds. During your stay you explore the sunny beach, rest in hot tubs overlooking the ocean, discover winding paths through the forest, and enjoy fireside chats with fresh organic tea. From nourishing meals, to cozy and crafted accommodations, to complimentary activities like yoga and rowing, it’s everything you imagined and more.

Hollyhock is located at the south-eastern tip of what is currently called Cortes Island, BC in the beautiful traditional territories of the KlahooseTla’aminHomalco Nations.* It is approximately 160 kilometers (100 miles) north of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

3-day Eat Real to Heal Retreat

YOUR BODY IS YOUR LIFELONG COMPANION

It’s your home from the moment you’re born, through every single moment of your life.  Unfortunately, it’s a “home” that doesn’t always get the very best treatment.

Environmental toxins in the soil, water, and air, processed food, stress at work, not enough movement, too much sitting in front of a computer screen—it all adds up.

The result: chronic illnesses like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, depression and fatigue. Diagnosis and treatment can be a confusing, frightening time, and it is easy to overlook the self-care that aids recovery. Learn to eat, supplement, detoxify and live to take control of your health and allow your body to heal.

It’s time to give your body some much-needed care, attention, nutrition and detoxification.

It’s an investment in yourself that you’ll never regret.

Join Nicolette Richer, founder of Richer Health, for a restorative + optimally healing weekend retreat. Open to men and women of all ages.

Through creative journaling you’ll create a vision for the health you want, diagnose the root causes of your health challenges, and creatively write the prescription for yourself to facilitate your self-healing journey so you can realize your optimum health goals.

— Yoga classes. Daily yoga practice for all skill levels, from beginners to experienced yogis, to stimulate your immune system, improve strength and circulation, cleanse your lungs and liver, heal your digestive tract, and release toxins.
