Nourishing & Transformational Yoga Retreat, Cebu Philippines

Come and pamper yourself in Wellnessland! Here in Wellnessland we simplify the complicated. Nowadays health has become very complicated but according to our founder, health is simple. 

All diseases, whatever they are called in medical terms can be boiled down to the two bottom-line root causes, which are toxicity and deficiency. Toxicity means something in your body is there that is not supposed to be there. Deficiency means something in your body that is supposed to be there is not, or it is there but insufficiently. So, if there are only two bottom-line root causes of diseases, it follows that there are only two bottom-line solutions to diseases; and that is to detoxify and to nourish. When you detoxify and nourish your body, mind, and spirit, the body heals itself in a very amazing way. This is the divine design of our bodies!
