Detox and Cleansing Retreat for the Healthier, Longer Life

September 14, 2019 – September 28, 2019


For many years I have been looking for the right person to help us revive The Ranch tradition of fasting.  My father believed strongly in the capacity of the human body to heal itself.

Fasting and cleansing have now become trendy, and Ranch guests have been fasting in a variety of ways since the early 1940’s.  In the 60’s guests participated in the “Mediterranean Grape Cure,” which was essentially a grape cider with raw vinegar detox. It was ahead of its time in recognizing the nutritional benefits of disease-fighting antioxidants called flavonoids. In the 70’s and 80’s we offered two days of juice fasting called “The virtue making diet.”

Dr. Michael Finkelstein, author of the book “Slow Medicine” and longtime Ranch guest is the perfect match for the Ranch’s new fasting and detox program.  Dr. Finkelstein will provide holistic medical support, inspiration, and education as we spend two weeks together cleansing and transforming our bodies.  We will emerge renewed and lighter, not only in our physical body, but also in our heart and spirit.  I’ll be participating with you, and together we will form a supportive community.

As Rumi says, “When you fast,
 good habits gather like friends who want to help.”

In Friendship,
Sarah Livia Szekely Brightwood, President
