Het detoxprogramma en de sapkuur zijn overtuigend bewezen. Soms worden er kleine aanpassingen gemaakt, maar het basisprogramma blijft hetzelfde. Dit programma werkt.

The central clinic building houses the treatment rooms, the QRS magnet healing bed, foot detox equipment, zapping equipment, a relaxation area, and a small library.

    You will have a vegetable soup on Saturday evening then you will be fasting from Sunday morning onwards. The juice program is a simple juice diet with various supplements to assist your body with the detoxification process, and to push toxins out of your digestive system. At all times, Moinhos Velhos will provide lemon water and herbal teas which you can take freely. If for any reason you break the fast early, Moinhos Velhos will not be able to provide regular meals during the fasting programs.

    Juice fasting

    According to the purists, this program is not a real fast, as you will take fruit and vegetable juices as well as vegetable broth along with herbs, vitamins, minerals, etc. To the purists, fasting means only water.

    However, a Swedish doctor, Ragnar Berg, one of world's foremost authorities on nutrition and biochemistry, stated that during fasting, the body burns up and excretes huge amounts of accumulated wastes.

    You can help this process by drinking alkaline juices instead of water. Juice fasting is therefore the very best form of fasting. Furthermore, you will cleanse the entire gastrointestinal tract with the herbs and the Clysmatic (a gravity type colonic) cleanses and stimulates the lower intestine.

    The various treatments avaiable five days a week assures the elimination of toxins and the balancing of your entire system. The sauna cleanses through the skin, and the yoga and meditation facilitates the purification of the mind and the spirit. All of this in a most serene and pure setting.


    On the first morning, a schedule is open to make your therapy reservations. Moinhos Velhos will also show you how to use the clysmatic, a gentle colonic cleansing system you administer yourself in the privacy of your bathroom.

    Exercise, meditation, and relaxation

    Each morning at 08:00, there will be a meditation and yoga session while every evening, there will be a meditation session or workshop. The evening workshops can include a Biodanza movement session and a Sivananda tradition inspired fire ceremony.

    Attendance to these sessions is highly recommended as during the detoxification process, blockages and tensions held in the physical, mental, and emotional levels of the body are released. These practices help you to let go of them, to relax properly, and to sleep more comfortably as they are designed to assist in your detoxification process.

    During the day, you can relax, swim, have a therapy session, explore, and walk around the area and even help out in the organic gardens. There is a collection of videos and DVDs of related subjects and movies to watch. On alternate days, the sauna is on in the early evening. The hot tub is on every day.

    Fasting and yoga

    The combination of gentle moving, stretching, and twisting together with deep breathing, speeds up the detox process. The lymph and blood transporting the released toxins are pumped through the body at a faster rate, improving drainage of toxins and speeding up the elimination process. The state of relaxation brought about by yoga causes the healing, restorative parasympathetic nervous system to take over from the autonomic nervous system. Then, the body starts to clean and heal itself.

    The practice of yoga helps boost energy levels, as you take in and store abundant amounts of prana (energy) whilst holding postures and doing pranayama. The more you detox, the clearer the energy channels become, and the greater the effects of the yoga practice. Not only is this highly beneficial both short term and long term, but it also makes the detox process easier and a lot more enjoyable. You feel psychologically uplifted, and the mind is strengthened to carry on. It also gives you a clear indication of the energetic effects of yoga.


    This cutting edge diagnostic and therapy unit of the future comes from Russia. The Physiospect is an NLS biofeedback system, connected to a computer that can diagnose and treat almost every known pathological condition, disease and illnesses, even before there are any physical symptoms. The Physiospect will determine the stress level of all organs and systems. It can select the most appropriate allopathic and homeopathic remedies, as well as suitable foods, herbal and nutritional remedies, and can identify emotional and physiological issues.

    The Physiospect provides the therapist with the most unique tool for scanning the various organs and systems of the physical body without having to make a medical or surgical intrusion. As a preventive tool, the Physiospect is unique as it can detect a problem before there are any physical symptoms. With the Meta Therapy the process can be reversed and illness prevented. But please be aware that the Physiospect as such does not heal, nor does it claim to heal.

    The Physiospect transfers the frequencies of a healthy organ to the client, thereby stimulating the bodys immune system to heal, which the body is programmed to do. There is nothing new about this concept, it has been around for eons, going back to the ancient acupuncture system, and more recently with the Tesla coils and the Reef frequencies. With the advent of the modern computers, the Russian scientists were able to create a computer program to stimulate the healing process. On the computer screen, the client can see this transformation happening.

    Each week, one day is allotted where you will have an outing depending on the weather. The destination will either be to Lagos or to one of the beautiful local Algarve beaches.

    Guests for the 11 day program will also visit the Salt Cave in Lagos, which is especially therapeutic for the respiratory system.

    Moinhos Velhos is a secluded valley near the Barragem da Bravura. It is close to Lagos, on the Algarve coast in Portugal. Algarve is a well known region of Portugal with a laid back lifestyle. The western Algarve is perfect to unwind and recharge with some deserved rest and recuperation, explore the fantastic culture, and unspoiled countryside that still retains its natural charm.

    Travelling just half an hour from either the south or west coast up through the countryside to the Monchique mountain at 1000 meters, the whole area is speckled with small villages and towns with one foot in past.

    Away from the popular tourist areas, Moinhos Velhos lays on 16 hectares (40 acres) in an area of several thousand hectares of natural beauty. It is a protected area where you will wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning, and retire with the silence of the stars at night.

    No food will be given during this fasting detox retreat. However, you will not feel hungry as you will receive direct nutrition from the juices, and in addition to the powders and herbal pills taken to eliminate toxins, you will receive supplements to keep your energy level up. As a matter of fact, after a few days, you will probably feel more energetic than you have in ages.
