Juicing - the Power to Heal

Dr. Frank Sabatino

Balance for Life Health Director

For our guests only, we offer a program of plant-based vegan nutrition, health rejuvenation, stress management and therapeutic cleansing, including water-only fasting.

The mission at Balance for Life Retreat is to help our program guests learn how to personally take control of their health and well-being through the retreat's customized Wellness Programs. Dr. Frank Sabatino and his team will guide our program guests every step of the way to achieve their health goals whether they be cleansing/health recovery or just building a more solid foundation and understanding of the benefits of a plant based lifestyle.


Cleansing is a crucial part of any health and weight loss program. The stress, pressure and exhaustion of daily life can interfere with normal elimination and repair and these stressors urge the body to hold on to metabolic waste. When you add this toxic burden to the toxic chemicals we are all exposed to in our environment and food supply, it becomes increasingly apparent that optimal health requires a reduction and removal of body toxicity.

Balance for Life Retreat provides a variety of supervised cleansing programs for our guests only, including juice and smoothie diets, that are always adjusted to your personal needs and best interests.

Juicing is the process of extracting juice from fruit, vegetables or tubers. The resultant nutrient-rich liquid is usually consumed immediately after juicing to maximize the health benefits.

Water-Only Fasting

We are delighted to announce that Balance for Life is one of only two centers in the U.S. that provides fully supervised water-only fasting. Water-only fasting is one of the most profound, natural and effective tools for cleansing and health recovery and the warm, gentle breezes and Florida oceanside location of Balance for Life Retreat make it the ideal environment for fasting care.

While fasting has been part of human culture for thousands of years, only in the last few hundred years have we begun to investigate the therapeutic benefits of the practice. Interestingly, modern science has found a variety of verifiable positive effects fasting has on human health.

What Is Water Fasting?

Water fasting, also known as a water cleanse, is a type of fasting in which you consume only water for a set period of time. Many cleansing diets are referred to as fasts, but in water fasting, you take in zero calories. It’s distinct from caloric restriction in which a person’s daily caloric intake is reduced by 30–40%.

For water fasting and for those people who wish to do an extended juicing program, you must have a phone consultation with Dr Sabatino and obtain his permission before attending and participating in these programs.

Water-only Fasting: A Fast Track To Health
By Frank Sabatino, DC, PhD

In addition to my own personal fasts, I have fasted thousands of people over the past 40 years for a wide variety of health concerns. I have also been part of a group of dedicated hygienic physicians who have supervised many thousands of fasting patients over more than 60 years.
