Total Health Experience On a Tropical Island
The Total Health Retreat will take place from April 23 through 30 at the Gran Ventana Beach Resort, in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Participants will learn from leading scientists, medical authorities and chefs how and why to transition to a plant-based diet while having a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.
Keynote speakers include Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. Additional speakers include Dr. Kathryn Hayward, co-founder of International Integrators and Dr. Bruce Monger, a member of NASA’s Ocean Biology from Cornell University.
Four Plant-Based East Cooking classes will be provided by Chef Del Sroufe, author of the acclaimed Forks Over Knives Cook-book, and Ann Esselstyn, author of The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook, will provide a session on transitioning to a whole food, plant-based diet.
There will be yoga classes, beach walks, swimming, two local excursions, and opportunities to network and create friendships with like-minded people. All dishes at the buffet are animal- and dairy-free, with no added oil or processed sugar.
