Tucked away in the hills of Mexico just minutes from the Tecate border is the famous destination fitness resort and spa, Rancho La Puerta. Celebrities and people in-the-know swear by the positive mental and physical changes experienced during their week-stay that lasted well after returning home. I didn’t understand completely until I experienced the award-winning program myself last summer.
Rancho La Puerta Special Juice Cleanse Program
In August, guests can reserve a spot for a week of inner scrubbing during a special juice cleanse program offered during the weeks of August 10 and August 17.
Our bodies can become easily overwhelmed by poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, chronic stress and exposure to environmental toxins. A periodic cleanse helps activate the body’s natural detox mechanisms.
Will I Drink Juice For A Week?
No. On Saturday and Sunday, guests will eat from the Pure and Simple diet. They’ll drink fresh juices from Monday through Thursday and then resume eating on Friday and Saturday. Guests will return home prepared with a Cleanse Support Box that includes herbal teas and supplements to help the body continue to detox post-cleanse.
Other RLP Juice Cleanse Week Perks
Guests enjoy a complimentary seaweed or herbal wrap, a private half-hour consultation and an exfoliating dry brush massage or loofa scrub. There is no additional charge for the cleansing program.
Call for availability at (800) 443-7565.
