Fasting / Detoxification

Total Health Institutes has THREE  Inpatient  Programs so that you can choose which program is best suited for your health needs:

1. Weekend Getaway Program

This is for those who want to jump start their system into a healing direction in the shortest amount of time. This is not for those that have chronic symptoms or conditions.

2. Fasting/Detoxification Program 

This is for those who want to get away for a period of fasting and detoxifying the body, mind and emotions.  

3. Comprehensive Treatment Program (which also includes everything in the other programs)

This is for those who want to get away and do the ultimate to heal or to maintain health of their body, mind and emotions.  


Fasting and Detoxification Program

 Fasting/Detoxification Program Rates
1 Week        
Individual $3,200      
Spouse $2,800        

This program is for those who want to get away from the world and  spent quiet time while at the same time learning powerful truths that will set them free in your body, mind and spirit. This program includes room, living/raw food, complete use of the facilities: ozone indoor and outdoor pool, infrared sauna, exercise building and rebounding cellular exercise classes.  

The program includes the following tests:

  • Quantum Analysis
  • Microscopic Blood Analysis
  • Toxic Metals Test

Quantum Analysis

This analysis looks at the organ and gland imbalance from an energy point of view. If you saw your health as a flowing river of life or energy then this test can show you were the river is dammed up or blocked. We formulate a custom remedy called B.E.M.S. from this analysis that helps unblock this river of life and energy to help improve your health and the specific areas, organs and glands that are blocked. The B.E.M.S is customized to each organ, gland and system that is showing the energetic blockages. Dr. Nemec also checks the body to find out the right priority of imbalance in addressing the blockage in this flow of energy or also known as blockage in cellular communication.

Cellular communication is the key in health and healing. What do we mean by “cellular communication”?

Published in the Public Library of Science on Cellular Communication:

Information transfer is a fundamental of life. Cell populations use frequencies for cellular information transfer, which influences at least energy uptake, cell division rate and growth correlation. A cellular communication system, which is different from a molecule-receptor-based system hints that photon-triggering is a fine tuning principle in cell chemistry.

Information transfer is a life principle. On a cellular level we generally assume that molecules are carriers of information, yet there is evidence for non-molecular information transfer. Cells can influence each other without using a molecular signal.  This means that not all cellular processes are necessarily based on a molecule-receptor recognition. The non-molecular signals are most probably photons. If so, cells use more than one frequency for information transfer and mutual influence. Biophoton research is a non-invasive method that can give us valuable insights into non-molecular regulation of the life processes. If we can devote significant effort into this area of research we may one day develop non-invasive application technology with a fundamental impact into the nature of healthcare and medicine.

Published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Science:  Research revealed that energetic signaling mechanisms such as electromagnetic frequencies are one hundred times more efficient in relaying environmental information than physical signals such as hormones, neurotransmitters, growth factors

At Total Health Institute we have developed a ‘Systems Sequence Approach” to balance cellular communication between the cells, tissues, organs, glands and systems of the body.

It is like knowing the combination to open the lock to complete healing. To open this lock you must not only know the right systems to
balance but the right sequence.

For example if the problem is insomnia, the communication sequence might be (and this is different for every person):

  1. Hormonal system was over stimulated by some stress causing cortisol, the stress hormone to increase. When cortisol increases, melatonin the sleep hormone proportionally decreases.
  2. Next the high cortisol level  caused inflammation in the digestive system  and these inflammatory byproducts
  3. caused the detoxification system to overload so the liver could not clear all the high cortisol.
  4. Finally the high cortisol affected the nervous system producing a neurotransmitter imbalance in the brain that manifested as insomnia.

So the insomnia was not the problem at all, the hormonal system stress was the source.

This is where our experience picks the right choice. 

The second part of the quantum analysis is evaluating the mind and emotional blockages also from an energetic or cellular communication perspective. Once these have been isolated then another custom remedy called S.E.M.B. is made to unblock these areas of imbalance or to balance the energetic cellular communication. S.E.M.B has been helping people remove the mind-body blockages for over 20 years. We have had patient shrink tumors, balance blood sugar, stop pain, overcome depression, and stop panic attacks just to name a few. (results may vary from person to person)

In health and healing there are two avenues that blockages or imbalances eventually lead to symptoms, conditions and diseases. The first is a body-mind route and the second is mind-body route. You might be thinking that these sound like the same thing but I assure you they are not.

Let us explain:

If you take in a chemical or a toxin what does it do?  It can throw the liver out of balance. Once the liver is overloaded then the chemical or toxin can spill over into general circulation and cause inflammation and early cell death in any gland or organ in the body. What does this mean to you? It means symptoms, conditions and then possible diseases. What else does the chemical or toxin in the body do? When the liver gets overburden it has an emotional link that can trigger a response of anger. Each organ in the body can have an emotional connection. I realized this early in my thirty years of treating patients when the first patient that I put on a liver detoxification program came in the next day saying how angry he was and he did not know why, nothing had changed in his life. This was one of those “AH HA” moments for me.

So always remember what you do to your body, you do to your mind and what you do to your mind you also are doing to your body.

Now let us look at the mind- body connection. Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer oncologist in Germany discovered that it is the mind and traumatic stress that can trigger inflammation in specific areas in the brain which also correspond to specific glands and organs in the body. He found that mental/emotional stress or trauma in a sense “blows a fuse” in a specific part of the brain that can be seen on a brain scan. Each area of the brain can have an associated organ/gland/ tissue or body part that is the outward sign of the stress “blown fuse” in the brain.

Dr. Hamer, while in practice, had a high success rate in treating cancer and other disease. This awareness of the mind-body connection consisted of getting patients to realize that their disease was a product of believing a lie and once that lie was revealed and truth replaced it, the patient’s disease could heal.  The amazing truth is that the body can naturally heal if the stress or traumatic event is resolved.

Some the major areas of the body that are affected by this mind-body stress are:

Lungs may be associated with fear of death

Breast may be associated with a fear of separation with a spouse, child, mother or home

Colon may be associated with holding on to something or someone that you need to let go of

Liver may be associated with any held and not released anger.  Also anger because someone who does not belong has entered your territory or home.

Kidneys may be associated with fear of not being able to exist, fear of losing everything, fear of being alone

Ovary/testicle– may be held on to grief from loss of spouse, family member, loved one, friend, even  pet.

Thyroid-may be feeling powerless in a situation

As you can see the only way to be all that God created you to be is to balance your body-mind connection and also balance your mind-body connection. When they are both in balance then your health can be a complete cycle of balanced energy flow which we call BALANCED CELLULAR COMMUNICATION. This is the purpose of the custom remedies B.E.M.S. and S.E.M.B..

Remedies and products are not including in the initial testing.

  • Microscopic Blood Analysis-Actual color pictures of your body’s state of health and level of healing. This test uses just two drops of blood from a finger stick and gives indicators of the following: inflammation, oxidation/free radical formation, toxicity and general level of health.

toxic load

  • Toxic Metals Test                                                                                                                                                                                                     Heavy Metals are dangerous to your health and the hardest to remove from your body. You are tested for these toxic heavy metals that can slowly be destroying your health.
  • Mercury-affects brain, mind, memory, tremors,  lack of concentration, mood, anxiety, irritability, anger, fear, rage, depression,  insomnia, kidney, immune, cancer, digestion- Leaky gut, toxifies the liver, autoimmune disease, thyroid disease, heart disease, high triglycerides, high cholesterol, high blood pressure. High in fish, amalgams.
  • Aluminum– affects brain, memory, emotional swings, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, tremors, anemia, bone pain, osteoporosis, fractures, heart, liver, muscle. Half-life is 7 years without detoxification.
  • Cadmium– 10 times more toxic than lead, affects kidneys- blood pressure, any respiratory symptom: lung – lung cancer, smokers, bone pain, gout, fractures, osteoporosis, anemia, bone cancer, mimics estrogen so hormonal cancer risk including breast, uterine and prostate. High in animal products.
  • Lead– affects brain, mind, irritability, aggressive behavior, memory, learning, ADD, hearing, behavior, anemia, growth, thyroid, growth, pregnancy, headaches, kidneys, insomnia, constipation, hearing loss.
  • Arsenic– strong poison, primary route in the body is through diet-meat, fish and poultry are 80% of dietary arsenic, because it is a poison it works on all organs and systems, produces diabetes.
  • Total Body and Visceral Fat Analysis (if necessary) There are two ways fat stores in the body, either under the skin and in and around the muscles- this is call subcutaneous fat. This is the fat you see when you look at a person. The other type of fat is the most dangerous fat of all and it stores in and around your organs and glands decreasing their normal function and dumping inflammatory molecules into your blood constantly- this is called inflammatory visceral fat. This fat you cannot see (very thin people can have well over 10 pounds of inflammatory visceral fat stored in and around their organs and glands) but can be measured with our Total Body and Visceral Fat Analysis. This fat will keep you in constant symptoms, conditions and disease until you get rid of it. One of the major sources of inflammation in the body is produced by visceral fat. Studies show the more visceral fat you have the more likely you are to develop everything from cancer to diabetes to heart disease and to die prematurely. With our Total Body and Visceral Fat Analysis you can see if you are in the peak range of between 5-7.5% visceral fat and total body fat. You will receive a printout of your results as soon as you have the test done. 

With these tests we can identify how healthy the environment is in your body. Most all symptoms, conditions and diseases stem from an unhealthy internal environment.

The Fasting/Detoxification Program also includes: 

  • Personal Consultation with Dr. Nemec
    To review your lab results and to customize a program that enables you to be all that God has called you to be in body, mind and spirit.  
  • Daily classes on how to master the 7 Basic Steps to Total Health™ along with comprehensive teaching to set you free in body, mind and spirit.
  • Two colon hydrotherapy sessions per week
    Colon hydro-therapy is performed for powerful detoxification of the two most toxic organs in the body; the large intestine and the liver.
  • Two lymphatic drainage sessions per week
    Lymphatic drainage therapy is performed to help increase immune system strength, decrease inflammation (which is the root of all disease), and to detoxify the body’s sewer system which is the lymphatic system. This therapy can liquefy the clogged, stagnant lymph and is offered two times per week.
  • Infrared Therapy (***not included in the weekend getaway)
  • For every degree of temperature increase the blood flow doubles. As your core temperature is increased (hyperthermia) the immune system (natural killer cells, macrophages, T & B lymphocytes) is stimulated into action so your body can fight off pathogens including bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, and cancer cells. The technology of infared domes deeply penetrates the tissues of the core versus superficial heating of infared saunas or lamps. This therapy also includes massage with a therapeutic device that  increases local blood circulation, relaxes muscles, and also induces Alpha wave of relaxation in the brain.
  • Neuromuscular Motion Therapy (***not included in the weekend getaway)
  • This therapy can increase CSF motion, joint motion and decreases tension in muscles and joints. It helps relieve tension in the nervous system while being very relaxing. Six sessions per week.
  • Use of our ozonated pool
  • Use of our exercise building

At Total Health Institute we have an inpatient facility where you can stay and work on restoring your health, getting away from the stress and negative energies of the world and people around you.  

We have found that when we take a person out of their stress-filled environment and put them into our peaceful, serene environment of health and healing and immerse them not only in pure body, mind, spirit teaching, but also have them live in the presence of those who have walked the total health journey through, those who have climbed the mountain of total health and DID IT, those that overcame their physical, mental, emotional challenges and now walk in total health of body, mind and spirit, this greatly increases their healing rate.

When we put people in the presence of those who have the total health awareness and the physical manifestation of healing of their body, mind and spirit this energy is transferred and this energy transfer is called entrainment. An example of entrainment is when you put a person in an environment with cheerful, happy, optimistic people then that person will positively entrain upward and naturally become more happy, cheerful and optimistic no matter how negative he/she was to start. Also on the other side if you put a person in an environment of all negative, pessimistic people that person will negatively entrain downward and become much more negative and pessimistic then they were originally.

What naturally happens when people stay at the THI instead of coming and going on daily visits is a possible 3 fold increase in their healing rate.  

This is because they are not undoing part what is accomplished each day with treatment, therapy and fasting/detoxification by going back into negative and tempting environments that cause them to take one and a half steps backward after their two steps forward that they accomplished from the treatment/therapy at the THI.

When you stay at THI you take two steps forward each day with NO STEPS BACKWARD because you are not being exposed to the negative energies, only being positively entrained upward, being transformed each and every day from crawling, to walking to running to climbing to flying on wings of eagles, to the purest state of “being” which means you have entered the state of being still so that you can truly know the I AM God who lives within you.  These revelations and awareness’s will be transferred to you being in the presence of those that are already are “flying” and who have learned how to “be still and know the I AM God” in the most intimate way.

The Inpatient Center is Christ centered and focuses on the Truth that when one is IN CHRIST they have received salvation of the spirit, soul and physical body. This means that “by His wounds you are healed” in all parts- your body as well as your mind, emotions and spirit.

The Fasting/Detoxification Program also includes:

You will also do listen to daily Body/Mind/ Spirit teachings which leads you step by step to the destination of being free in body, mind, will, emotions and spirit.

You will know the TRUTH and the TRUTH will set you free in body, soul and spirit. People can not only heal their physical health challenges when they come to stay at the inpatient facility, but they also can heal their mental/emotional health challenges as well.

Him who the SON has set free is free indeed in body, mind, will, emotions and spirit. You will listen to Dr.  Nemec’s most powerful teachings including:

7 Basic Steps to Total Health™ 
This series shows the path to healing body, mind and spirit by balancing the physical, then mental/emotional and spiritual.

One cannot heal unless they understand that everything in their life has a physical, mental/emotional and spiritual component.  To heal and stay in total health all three must be seen as one.  All three must be healed as one.

Teaching includes:

    • Seven Basic Steps to Total Health™ Overview  
    • Air/Oxygen/Breathing                                                                               
    • Water
    • Food
    • Sleep/Sun  
    • Exercise  
    • Fasting/Detoxification  
    • Prayer/Meditation/Stillness  

This series shows you step by step what is best to promote total health and healing.  Once these seven basic steps are mastered, healing and total health can be natural byproducts.

Daily classes on how to master the 7 Basic Steps to Total HealthTM

Daily use of our ozonated pool

Daily Far-Infrared sauna sessions

Exercise classes including cellular/lymphatic, rebounding.

During your stay you will fast from the world’s food (as Daniel did) and eat living/raw vegan food that has not been cooked to destroy life giving enzymes. These include seed milks, sprout/avocado soups and freshly juiced sprout/vegetable juices served daily.

We also teach our powerful mind/body stillness training (so you can hear the voice of the Lord spoken to your heart).

The Program is ongoing, and begins on Monday. Please plan to arrive by Noon. Checkout is Saturday by 11 AM. Minimum stay is one week. Please call to determine availability.

A Place of Fasting

We teach one of the most effective types of fasting. You will fast your entire stay on living/raw plant foods/juices in the most digestible form. You will also learn how to prepare living/raw foods so that you can live a fasted lifestyle when you return home. With these newly acquired skills you will be able to continually grow in your body, mind and spirit health.

There is almost nothing more powerful available to you to help heal your body, mind, emotions and spirit than fasting. Dr. Herbert Shelton – the most renowned practitioner in the field of therapeutic fasting who had supervised over 40,000 fasts states: “Fasting is the best way to maintain good health, eliminate pain and disease, reduce and control weight, and ultimately prolong life.” Fasting has the ability to cleanse the body and the soul (mind, will and emotions). “Let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.”

Ancient Fasts for Mind and Body

Among the ancients it was recognized as a sovereign method of attaining and maintaining marked mental and physical efficiency. Socrates and Plato, two of the greatest of the Greek philosophers and teachers, fasted regularly for a period of ten days at a time. Pythagoras, another of the great Greek philosophers, was also a regular faster, and, before he took an examination at the University of Alexandria, fasted for forty days. He required his pupils to fast for forty days before they could enter his class. -Major W.C. Gotshall, M.S.

Hippocrates on Fasting

The more you nourish (feed) a diseased body, the worse you make it.”- Hippocrates, the father of medicine.

Hippocrates prescribed total abstinence from food while a disease was on the increase, and especially at the critical period, and a spare diet on other occasions.
Hippocrates prescribed fasting for numerous conditions. The Hippocratic Oath that every physician takes before entering practice is “First do no harm,” understanding the power of the body to heal itself with the basics of health including the power of fasting. Hippocrates said “Let your food be your medicine.” This is the spare diet of no excess in times of health and fast in times of symptoms, conditions and diseases.

A Whole New You

Every cell in your entire body is replaced within one year. This means you can be a whole new you in one year. The problem is if you keep doing what you have always done, you will get what you have always had, a physically as well as mentally/emotionally toxic, out of balance, blocking the flow of life, body.

Doctors Carlson and Knude, of the Department of Physiology at the University of Chicago, placed a forty-year old man on a fourteen-day fast. At the end of the fast, they examined his tissues and declared that they were of the same physiological condition as those of a seventeen- year old youth. Dr. Knude stated: “It is evident that where the initial weight was reduced by 45%, and then subsequently restored by normal diet, approximately one-half of the restored body is made up of new protoplasm. In this, there is rejuvenescence.”
As you fast you can lose not only all the toxins, chemicals, and drugs stored in the tissues, you can also lose the non-vital tissue, the cysts, tumors, edematous fluid, You also can lose the bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi and any other pathogens because your white blood cells consume them or they die because they are no longer being fed. You can lose the OLD you, the stored mental/emotional toxins that are held in tissues. Once you lose the OLD toxic, lie-filled you, you can rebuild the NEW, unblocked, TRUTH-filled you.

The New and Improved You

The old is gone, the new has come. You need to lose all the old cells, tissues, emotions and mindsets that have stored in those cells and tissues first. Next the new cells and tissues are rebuilt with pure energy, pure mind and pure spirit. Every cell in the body is replaced within one year. Plant new seeds and you can get a new harvest.

The Efficiency of Fasting

In fasting, all non-essential cells, tissues and fluids can be broken down back into their component parts of amino acids, essential fatty acids, simple chain sugars, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. This includes tumors, cysts, scars, edematous and extraneous fluids. Then the miracle of fasting reorganizes these component building blocks and reuses them to rebuild the “new” body of health and wholeness so one does not become deficient. The body can then turn non-essential tissue into essential tissue.

Deficiency from Dead/Cooked Food

A person becomes deficient when they eat dead/cooked food because these foods are anti-nutrients, meaning they use up your enzymes, vitamins and minerals just to digest and absorb them. These dead/cooked foods are never fully digested so the white blood cells, which are high in enzyme activity, have to digest the undigested food. This causes a great imbalance in the immune system response. A tremendous amount of energy is expended to try to digest and absorb this dead/cooked food, leaving the body drained of energy needed for vital functions. The results: deficiency, toxicity, immune imbalance and loss of vitality of the cells, tissues, glands, and organs.

Fasting Results
Dr. William Esser reported after fasting 156 people who collectively complained of ulcers, tuberculosis, sinusitis, pyorrhea, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, cancer, insomnia, gallstones, epilepsy, colitis, hay fever, bronchitis, asthma and arthritis. Fast lengths were from 5 to 55 days. Some did not complete the fast.

The results were as follows: 113 completely recovered, 31 partially recovered, 12 were not helped. 92% either improved or completely recovered.

Fasting and Chemical/Poison Elimination

From the American Journal of Industrial Medicine the article entitled “A Trial of Fasting Cure for PCB Poisoned Patients of Taiwan.” The study was with patients who had consumed rice oil contaminated with PCB’s. After a 7 to 10 day fast the results were dramatic relief and improvement in symptoms in every one of the patients.

Fasting Results

Dr. Herbert Shelton’s Health School saw over 40,000 patients from 1928 to 1981. Dr. Shelton stated that virtually every acute or chronic disease can respond with astounding success to properly supervised therapeutic fasting. Some of them include: common cold, multiple sclerosis, asthma, arthritis, migraines, cardiovascular disease, hay fever, colitis, obesity, eczema, psoriasis, gallstones, ulcers and tumors.
Fasting and the Mind
Fasting has been repeatedly observed to alleviate neuroses, anxiety, and depression. A Japanese clinic fasted 382 patients with psychosomatic disease with a success rate of 87%.

Dr. Allan Cott used fasting as a treatment for schizophrenics and reported the results in Applied Nutrition in Clinical Practice. Dr. Cott fasted 28 patients that had been diagnosed as schizophrenic for at least five years and had not responded to standard treatment. The results: success in 60% of the cases.

A Place of Detoxification

Total Health Institute’s Inpatient Programs have the state of the art detoxification therapies to aid you in the removal of chemicals, toxins, medications and drugs that have built up in your system over the years which include: lymphatic drainage therapy, colon hydrotherapy, detoxification therapy, and infrared therapy. These toxins if left in the body can cause free radical damage to the organs, glands and tissues. This damage manifests as inflammation and inflammation is the root of all disease. If not addressed free radical formation and inflammation can turn into disease. The largest toxin containing organs are the ones we target with the therapies which include the lymphatic system, the bowel, liver and kidneys. Having therapies performed weekly when you are at the Institute can help you release decades of toxic build up in your system, that if not removed could turn into the some of the following symptoms, conditions and diseases:


  • fatigue
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • bloating
  • heartburn, reflux
  • gas
  • pain, numbness, burning, tingling
  • weakness
  • recurrent infections
  • allergies/sensitivities
  • insomnia
  • joint problems
  • tachycardia/palpitations of the heart
  • weight problems either high or low
  • emotional highs and lows
  • anxiety/depression

which then if not healed could turn into the following

  •   Conditions:
    • High blood pressure
    • High cholesterol
    • High/low blood sugar
    • High/low thyroid
    • Adrenal exhaustion/Adrenalitis
    • Hyper/low immune response
    • Anxiety/Depression
    • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    • Gastritis/Esophagitis /GERD
    • Pancreatitis
    • Colitis
    • Hepatitis/Nephritis
    • Thyroiditis
    • Candida Asthma/Allergies/sensitivities
    • Rashes/hives/acne/dermatitis/eczema
    • Cysts/tumor

and finally if not healed could turn into the:


  • Heart disease
  • Stroke 
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive disease
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Respiratory disease
  • Neurological disease  



John H. Tilden, M.D. – one of the foremost natural healing physicians of the first half of the 20th century – believed the cause of all disease was a toxic build up in the tissues and fluids of the body. According to Dr. Tilden, some of the causes of this toxemia were: overeating, eating wrong food, wrong food combinations, mineral/vitamin deficiencies, low nerve energy, postural tension on the nerve system, poor environment, physical excesses, sensual indulgences, killing emotions of fear, worry, rage (anger), and jealousy.

The Secret to Long Life
The secret to long life lies in keeping the blood and bodily fluids pure and free of toxic material. Dr. Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller Institute stated, “The cell is immortal. It is merely the fluid that it floats in that degenerates. Renew this fluid atproper intervals, and give the cell nourishment upon which to feed, and so far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever.”

Dr. Carrel confirmed his idea of immortality of the cell through an experiment in which he kept a chicken heart alive for 28 years. This is quite amazing since the lifespan of a chicken is 8 to 10 years. Dr. Carrel stated that as long as the nutrients to the chicken heart were pure, and the metabolic waste was constantly removed, the heart would never have to die. The experiment was ended when an attendant in the lab forgot to change the fluids causing the heart to die.

A Place of Prayer/Meditation/Stillness
Prayer is simply communicating or communing with God. In our communion with Him most of this time is spent listening to His voice spoken into our hearts. We teach an easy step by step approach to hear God’s voice clearly and how to know when it is He who is speaking to your rather than your mind, your emotions, or the world system. “Be still, and know that I am God.” “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” He puts His Word in your heart when your mind is stilled, as you fast and pray. During your retreat you will be taught and have time to practice powerful yet simple techniques to still your mind and hear the voice of God speaking to your heart. You will leave with a confidence of knowing and differentiating His voice from your own voice. You will know who speaking when you use these techniques to analyze what is being spoken.

A Place of Healing
When you spend a period of time away from the world system, in fasting and prayer, in meditation and stillness while at the same time detoxifying your body, powerful healing of body, mind, and emotions naturally follows. When people stay at the THI instead of coming and going for treatment there can be up to a 3 fold increase in their healing rate.

At Total Health Institute thousands of patients have restored their total health and overcome cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease, respiratory disease, gastrointestinal disease (reflux, GERD, ulcers, irritable bowel, colitis, leaky gut syndrome, maldigestion/malabsorption, chronic constipation),metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, hormonal imbalances, allergies, sleep disorders, weight disorders and pain syndromes to name a few. To read powerful healing testimonies go testimonial section. (results may vary from person to person)

A Place of Renewal and Transformation
Our fasting and prayer program will lift you up and energize you in body, mind and spirit. Our purpose on this planet is to be transformed into Christ’s image and likeness, in spirit, soul and body. This transformation can take place naturally when you fast and pray, being still and separated from the people and the system of the world. How will you know the transformation is occurring? You will walk in His love, joy and peace in ALL circumstances in your life and you will have victory and freedom in every area of your life. This is what you will learn during your stay.

A Place of Teaching
You will have classes each week which include: food preparation, Seven Basic Steps to Total Health™, cellular exercise classes, and Q&A class.

A Place for You  

We offer a one to four week Inpatient Fasting/Detoxification/Prayer/Meditation Program. If God has put this into your heart then step out in obedience and let the transformation into HIS image begin.

Call 630-871-0000 to request a call from one of our health associates so all of your questions can be fully answered. They can discuss all the options we have available to empower your transformation of body, mind and spirit.
