Lifestyle & Detoxification

 

‘I fell in love with lifestyle festivals and retreats in 1990s after staying at the Ontos Health retreat in East Gippsland and attending Confest. I then became involved in running health retreats for Monash medical students, being the medical doctor at Confest and running a series of Healing Arts Festivals.

In the early 2000s I helped the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group set up the first spa division for a five-star hotel chain and went on to co-edit the text “Understanding the Global Spa Industry”.

I have since become interested in the features of a healthy lifestyle along with detoxification and the health impact of pesticides and I am now conducting research on the health benefits of health retreats along with ways to assess toxic chemical exposure in clinical practice, and how to reduce exposure to toxic environmental chemicals and detoxify from past exposures using simple lifestyle measures. This includes research that demonstrated a nearly 90% reduction in pesticide metabolites after one week of organic food and a study that found improved cognitive function and health symptoms after a one week retreat stay.’
