LifeCode GX


LifecodeGX™ Nutrigenomics Retreat

Only One Summer Date: 1st – 8th June 2019*

Join LifecodeGX™ for this spectacular and unique retreat offering – 7 days of nutrigenomics, juice fasting, detoxification and yoga at Wild View Retreat in the Algarve, Portugal.

The idea for this unique event emerged when LifecodeGx team members, Emma and Karen, experienced one of the first Juice Fasting and Yoga retreats hosted by fellow nutritionist Andrew Finlay and his partner, Erika, at Wild View Retreat, last Summer.

“On the journey to Portugal I was wondering what I had got myself into, but by mid-way through the week I was blown away. Contrary to what I expected from a juice fast, I wasn’t hungry at all, had more energy, yet felt relaxed… and my brain was sharper! What a perfect scenario in which to learn….” – Emma

LifecodeGx™are delighted to present their nutrigenomics in practice training including gene-environment interactions of core nutrients with detoxification, methylation, neurotransmitter and endocrine systems. Practical and interactive case study and group exercises will help build your knowledge and confidence to use nutrigenomics in practice on your return home. You will also earn 22 CPD points and qualify as a Lifecode registered practitioner.

Fasting has many health benefits. It provides our overworked digestive system a well-earned rest from near 24/7 breaking down of food all day and night. Cellular energy is diverted to maintenance and repair of other bodily systems. Ultimately caloric restriction, within limit, detoxifies the body, slows the ageing process and gives a significant boost to the immune system and energy levels.

At Wild View Retreat guests are provided 3 nutritious juices everyday alongside a delicious, warming soup in the evening. The juices have been carefully designed to support the detox process yet keep nutrient levels sustained to enable daily participation in the yoga classes, nature walks and, of course, the nutrigenomics training. On the last day guests have the option to break the fast with vegan food made all together in a fun nutrition workshop environment.

When guests finish the week they feel renewed and re-energised armed with the tools and techniques to make positive improvements to their lifestyle.

Prerequisites – guests should either be students of nutrition or qualified NTs. No experience of fasting or yoga is required, just a smile and an open mind
