Dr. Fuhrman helped me taper down my medications and gave me the confidence and support I needed to do this.

When I got to the retreat, I discovered this was different from anything I had ever tried. I soon learned that eating an organic Nutritarian diet was crucial to my recovery. This super-healthful diet was something I had never tried before. It seemed very overwhelming at first, but I was taught all the tools I needed to be able to continue this when I got home.

My taste buds had changed, my weight was plunging, and my blood pressure had normalized. The need for medications was greatly diminished.

Dr. Fuhrman examinded me, took my medical history, and got me going with the program immediately. During my stay, I interacted with the chefs often, learning what and how to cook. Their meals were amazing. … 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.

In mid-October I contracted COVID, which I survived, so I thought.

In late November, my autoimmune disease (psoriasis) became rampant, ravishing my body like never before. I immediately thought of Eat to Live Retreat, and booked for January. Here I was able to get all the tools I needed to be 100% successful. Within three weeks my legs and arms recovered about 95%! My torso is coming along slower, but coming along! After one month, I feel I have been given the best knowledge and tools to heal myself with nutrient-packed foods...To sum up my experience here at Eat to Live Retreat: Knowledge – Power – Family – Success

As I walked through the doors of Eat to Live Retreat I noticed a sign that said: Welcome. Your Transformation Awaits.

It’s now almost three months later. I’ve met wonderful people, three chefs prepared delicious meals, [and] there are exercise and yoga classes. Dr. Fuhrman delivered excellent lectures each week. Both Joel and his wife Lisa ate most meals with us and answered endless questions. I found them friendly, kind, generous and full of knowledge. Hiking and swimming in the California sunshine was absolutely delightful. I am so thankful and I am almost 60 lbs. lighter.
