If you want to lose the weight you have put on due to all the stress of the last two years and want to maximise your resistance against infection, then this is the retreat for you.

You want to lose weight, but you don’t want to harm your body while you shed the kilos. You definitely don’t want to reduce your body’s resistance to infection during this never-ending pandemic. You want to eat healthily, building your body’s natural immunity, while you get rid of the excess weight that puts you at risk of a variety of diseases, including COVID.

This is your opportunity to test-drive intermittent fasting, aka time-restricted eating, to find out if it suits you, while at the same time detoxing your body and your mind while walking the Camino de Santiago de Compostella. During this 5 – 14 day retreat, hosted in the foothills of the mighty Pyrenées mountains in the sun-blessed south of France, and have all your questions will be answered by a medical doctor who has been living this lifestyle herself for several years.

This is the perfect way to kick-start a weight loss program that will enable you to lose weight and keep it off permanently!

Instructor

Margaretha Montagu
Margaretha
After working for 20 years as a medical doctor in a variety of specialities including psychiatry and general practice, she came to the conclusion that many diseases have their roots in her patients’ inability to handle stress effectively. Instead of treating stress-related illnesses, she decided to look at practical ways that her patients can use to prevent stress from ruining their health.

She studied a number of alternative therapies including hypnotherapy and NLP, and eventually combined her education and experience to create the transformational virtual and residential retreats that she hosts in the south of France.
