A Health and Wealth Retreat in Taos, New Mexico

Registration is now open for a special retreat in Taos, New Mexico.

We invite you to join us for a very unique detoxification and liver support program. Everyone can benefit from this 5 day program. The liver requires an array of micronutrients that many people are deficient in and which only get worse with prolonged fasts or very limited food selection. Foods rich in carbohydrates, especially fructose, deplete the liver. And if you take medications, have had long bouts of sugar addiction or excessive carbohydrate consumption, have had limited sun exposure, and have consumed too much alcohol for too long, this is for you. Additionally there will be special attention paid to some genetic patterns, that many individuals carry, which can greatly influence our ability to detoxify…everything from stress hormones to charred or smoked foods.

The Way To a Healthier You is Always Through a Healthier Liver

TAOS, New Mexico
with John Bagnulo and Jan Buhrman

This is a liver centric program that supports liver health and uses many liver – detoxification promoting foods: dandelion, berries, daikon…

It has been estimated that 2/3 of Americans have fatty liver disease!

Fatty liver creates a whole load of issues. It causes inflammation in your body. Inflammation creates insulin resistance and pre-diabetes, which causes your body to deposit fat not just in your liver but also all around your organs and in your belly.Learn prevention and detoxifying methods to eliminate and prevent.

We will incorporate many 23and me genes that relate to liver capacity for foods and lifestyle.

Mabel Dodge Luhan House
Situated at the end of a quiet road not far from the center of town, the house appears much as it did 100 years ago. This place holds magical spirits of Georgia O’Keeffe, D.H. Lawrence, Ansel Adams and Martha Graham and Dennis Hopper among many other notables who have held conversations and meals at this historic location. Mabel Dodge Luhan outlined her future vision for her home in a letter to her friend, Alice Sprague.

Please consider joining us, there are limited spaces available, in Taos New Mexico for a new approach, new recipes, and a new experience.

Foods rich in polyunsaturated fat place unique metabolic stresses on the liver. Limiting these foods or possibly eliminating them temporarily can also have great benefit.  Foods rich in magnesium, choline, the sulfur containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, as well as those that support glutathione production and gall bladder function are most essential. In essence, a true liver and/or detoxification program should include foods that support and should eliminate those foods that provide major challenges. Many individuals use non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs daily for pain management, statins to lower blood lipids, and also live within home or work within environments that include a variety of toxins with minimal sunlight exposure. This creates the perfect storm, most notably for the liver. While most people rely on annual physical exams that may or may not include liver enzyme tests, these rarely reflect a suboptimal detoxification capacity for one’s liver.  Nor do simple liver tests or annual exams reflect fatty liver disease. It is sobering to acknowledge that 2/3rds of Americans have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
