The holidays are gone, and with them, your excuses for overindulging. After months of champagne and coquito, you may be dying for a detox.
If you're looking for a little more than the usual juice cleanse, the upcoming C.U.R.E. (Cultivating Unlimited Rejuvenating Energy) Retreat will teach you everything you need to know to get your innards (and outards?) in tip top shape.
The retreat was the brainchild of Rosanne Calabrese, A.P., Partners in Healing & C.U.R.E. founder. She will lead the retreat along with a team of others including a raw food chef, a massage therapist, and an acupuncture physician.
Previously, Calabrese suffered from two autoimmune thyroid diseases, Grave's Disease, and Hashimoto's. She discovered that detox was the only thing that reversed her conditions. Since then, she's detoxed hundreds of people, one-on-one, in clinical settings.
"All the while I kept thinking that a group setting with everything they need to succeed would give people an amazing experience and motivate them to continue to the point of healing," she explains. So she launched the C.U.R.E. Retreat.
The retreat will be held in a zen-like locale -- a private home in Davie. Kicking off on the evening of Thursday, January 15th are three-and-a-half days of activities including yoga, classes on how to cultivate unlimited energy, the benefits of acupuncture and self-lymphatic drainage (among others), juicing, meditation and more. All the food served will be vegan, raw, organic and detox-friendly.
"Anyone would benefit from attending," Calabrese says. "If someone just wants to maintain good health, get healthier or reverse the cause of a disease they are battling, this is the place to come. The education they will receive and the love and support from the staff and each other is life-changing."
The detox runs $599 per person (not including accommodations). Call 954-680-5500, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website for more details.
