Culinary Wellness Retreat
Adopting Paleo principles to treat
and reverse autoimmune disorders.
July 12-14/15, 2024
Accommodations provided by the Tipi Village Retreat in Marcola, OR
Hello, my name is Alice, and I want to share my health journey with you. After being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, I agreed to start a lifelong prescription plan to keep my symptoms under control. I didn’t realize there was another way. A better way. Food.
I discovered and have been following the Paleo approach (ancestral eating) which incorporates nutrient-dense foods while eliminating the foods that negatively impact my health. I have reversed ALL of my RA symptoms (including chronic fatigue) without the need for medications. My rheumatologist confirmed that my inflammation is gone! But this therapeutic diet can also help with fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s, lupus, IBS, SIBO…..the list goes on and on. This process was overwhelming and challenging, even for a foodie like me. I don’t want it to be overwhelming for you.
Diet represents the most powerful medicine available to us. In this course I have taken everything I learned on my journey back to health, and will present it to you so that you can recreate this process for yourself. We will discuss inflammatory foods, food triggers, gut health, cellular nutrition, food reintroduction, and creative ways to modify your favorite recipes. I will provide you with resources to take home with you after our retreat.
During this all-inclusive weekend we will prepare all of our meals in an outdoor, creek-side kitchen in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We will nourish our bodies with beautiful, flavorful, fresh ingredients using recipes from around the world. This is NOT a bland, boring diet! Whether you want to reverse your autoimmune disorder, or support someone you love who HAS an autoimmune disease, this lifestyle intervention can change your life. It changed mine.
Most accommodations at the Tipi Village Retreat are for two people. Consider taking this journey with a friend or supporter. There are 2 options for your wellness weekend: you may book your stay for two nights which will include 5 custom meals (D,B,L,D,B) or extend your experience with a third night, which will include 8 Paleo meals (D,B,L,D,B,L,D,B).
Let’s begin your healing journey, together. ”
Laughter is brightest in the place where food is good. ”
Accommodations for your stay are gorgeous, zen-style Tipis with comfy beds, Pendleton blankets, furnishings, and power outlets for lights and devices. For a more traditional sleeping experience, there are a limited number of cabins available as well.
All Tipis and cabins have access to a centrally located bath house with two full bathrooms. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and towels are provided.
Feed your passion for healing in this lush, wooded setting that promises to be an unforgettable stay! Enjoy the sound of the creek running through the property, & winding forest trails that are illuminated at night with strings of lights.
Free time can be enjoyed by relaxing in the hot tub, reading in a hammock, utilizing the large yoga platform deck, walking to the nearby swimming hole, visiting with new friends or unwinding in your Tipi. As night falls, gather round the fire pit with a mug of hot tea before bed.
