Because we have a multi-faceted program, there are a number of question we hear over and over. We have tried to capture these key questions and answer them right up front for you as you explore Grace Grove.
Q: What makes Grace Grove Different?
A: We could say it’s the land… 25 acres of privacy surrounded by one of the most unique riparian areas in the Southwest. With organic orchards and gardens.
We could say it’s the team… We are a full time team of professionals who live on the land and are present to guide you through every aspect of your experience.
We could say it’s the center… Attention to every detail from the organic mattresses and hand carved furniture to the kitchen stocked with the most wholesome food on the planet.
The reality however and our key distinction is our SYSTEM! Everything we do here works together as a synergistic whole to support your healing and vibrancy. Everything we do and have created was done with you in mind. Every stone we moved, every seed we planted every piece of art we placed on the wall was done with the anticipation of your arrival. The SYSTEM was designed so that you would experience full rejuvenation an every level of your being in just 7 days!!! Perhaps even more important our SYSTEM was designed so you can reproduce this experience every day in your life when you return home.
Q: Will I lose weight?
A: Absolutely, yet our SYSTEM is not a weight loss program. You lose weight as a natural result of getting rid of the toxins stored in the fat cells of you body. This is done quickly, safely and efficiently.
Q: How do I know if I have toxins in my body?
A: If you eat food, drink water or breathe air you have toxins in your body. Most of us are aware that we live in a toxic environment and that these toxins have a detrimental effect on our body. If I have to convince you of that, then you are not ready for our program. If you are aware and you’re ready to learn how you can actually do something about it, this is the single most important gift you can give yourself.
Toxins reveal themselves in many ways:
-Low or sluggish physical and /or mental energy
-Dry/ wrinkled skin reflects the inner condition of your health
-Joint pain and swelling
-Weight gain or loss
-Fatigue and restless sleep
Q; Will I receive all the nutrition I need while I’m there?
A: Absolutely, in fact you will be better able to absorb the nutrition and therefore will most likely not miss your regular eating regime.
Q: What will I learn while I’m there?
A: All classes are included and taught by our core team. You will gain a basic understanding of your body and it’s digestive and detoxifying systems, you will learn how to listen to your own body, how to use food as medicine, how to build a consistent movement practice, how to develop a healing attitude, and how to sustain the gains you make while you are here.
Q: How will I get the most out of my experience there?
A: It is best to gradually purify your diet. The cleaner your diet before you arrive the greater the results you will gain from the program. Gradually release Meat, cheese, dairy, any white flour products, processed food and eliminate caffeine and alcohol. The more vegetables and fresh fruits the better.
Q: What if I am on medications?
A: Consult your prescribing physician, ALWAYS advise our medical directors prior to arrival. Do not arbitrarily stop any medication you have been prescribed and if you have any health concerns consult your attending physician so you can be reassured. Please complete a health questionnaire prior to arrival; apprise us of your physical mental or medical condition. You will be required to join our health care association prior to arrival. As a member you accept full responsibility for your own health.
We suggest you leave jewelry, valuables and cash at home. Grace Grove is a fragrance free environment. We do use incense, sage and palosanto. Please advise use upon arrival if you have any fragrance sensitivities and also ask before using any on your body or inside any structure.
