Our Program


I am so thankful for the experiences I had at Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live Retreat.

I have been home now for a month and couldn’t be more thankful for the tools I was taught to be able to sustain this on my own at home. I have been continuing a Nutritarian diet, taking classes at my gym, continuing massages and staying active in all I do. I’m excited for the progress I have made and will continue! I’m so happy to have my life back, it feels amazing!! Thank you, Dr. Fuhrman and all your amazing staff that has helped me in my health journey! I am forever grateful to you all!

During my stay, I interacted with the chefs often, learning what and how to cook. Their meals were amazing.

After a couple of weeks eating this way, I had already made the changes necessary to live a long, healthy life. My taste buds had changed, my weight was plunging, and my blood pressure had normalized. The need for medications was greatly diminished. … The retreat was such a great place to stay while getting over the initial shock of having a heart attack. Everyone there had health issues, from cancer to diabetes to autoimmune disease. The support we gave each other was both comforting and enjoyable.
