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

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.
