We're in session this week with guests who are overweight or have diabetes and other issues. They are doing very well. One man has stopped all his insulin and his blood sugar is continuing to drop. They all love the wonderful food Neva is preparing!
Jim and Neva Brackett have been conducting retreats for over thirty years. Various venues have been used in the USA and overseas but they are pleased that these are now offered on their idyllic property north of Spokane, Washington west of Colville, and just east of beautiful Lake Roosevelt.
Their retreats offer hope for recovery and healing to most “Western” diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and many others. It is a simple program of activity (mainly walking) and learning to use only unrefined plant source foods. A physician is always on staff for the retreat. Neva, with help from the guests and other volunteers, prepares the meals and Jim and the physician bring the lecture/discussion topics. A syllabus with all the lecture material is provided. Numerous articles on the topics presented are available in pdf format.
Guests at the retreat need to bring walking clothes and shoes for the trails on the wooded property. Most of the guests will be staying in one of the three Chalet-homes which the Bracketts have built on the property: Cozy One, Quiet Two and Majestic Three. Each has two bedrooms, with either a queen double or two long-twins (which can be placed side by side to make a king) and two have lofts where long twin beds are available. Bedding is available to make two long twins into a King. RV spaces may also be available.
Smoking is not permitted but we will help you quit if you are a smoker. There is a no-pet policy (for exceptions, contact us beforehand).
Wi-fi internet is available and unlimited long distance to the 48 states is available at the lodge. Cell phones work to within about 1/2 mile of the Center but don’t work on the property. If you use ATT, a “micro-cell” will give reception in and around the lodge—ask to have your number registered to make it work.
