At Balance for Life health retreats in Florida, we believe intaking an holistic approach to wellness at our retreats. We don’t think it’s enough to focus on one issue, ache or challenge. In order to achieve lasting change and overall wellbeing, you must embrace and engage the whole person – body, mind and spirit. 

What Does Holistic Mean?

The dictionary defines holistic as an adjective meaning: 


characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.


characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.


As the Covid-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated, there are times when medicine can and absolutely should focus on a specific ailment. But, while it is wonderful and we should celebrate every time a Covid-19 patient leaves the hospital, successfully treating a disease does not produce overall wellbeing. 

On the flip side, a holistic health retreat can promote the kind of overall wellbeing that will not only enhance your immune system but also engender the kind of resilient emotional and mental health that will help you cope with the challenges of living through a pandemic.  

It’s easy to get excited about the idea of overall health and wellbeing, but simply talking about the importance of the connection between physical, emotional and mental health isn’t going to help you recharge and rejuvenate. Holistic health is the goal. But you need tools and clear-cut objectives to help you attain that goal. 

You need practical tools to In order to help you achieve holistic health, we structure our wellness retreats around four core components:

  • Nutrition
  • Fitness
  • Mindfulness and 
  • Natural Treatments
