Product Description

From the Publisher

GRAIL SPRINGS DETOX GUIDE is full of great advice about how to detox your mind, and soul, using the best recipes and life lessons from the `Queen of Detox'. Grail Springs and its wellness and detox programmes have already been featured in Flare, Canadian Geographic, Hello, Rodale Yogalife, and the May 2007 issue of Fashion Magazine. Grail Springs has, until now, been a quiet place to escape to and de-stress that only the stars knew about. Now you too can learn the secrets of the Master Cleanse, the transformational PH balanced acid/alkaline diet (as per the hugely successful Dr. Joshi and Dr. Haas, and James Ray of The Secret fame), and cleanse your body, mind and spirit in time for the new year.

About the Author

Madeleine Marentette operates Grail Springs, a luxurious wellness centre in Bancroft, Ontario, where she shares her secrets to living a healthy, vibrant, and brilliant life with hundreds of guests every year through diet, exercise, and reflection.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Read for Life on Jan. 25 2008
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be both an inspiring personal journey to wholeness and healing of the author and an excellent guide to a holistic lifestyle that can benefit everyone. It is written in a very easy-to-read style and provides an ongoing resource after you've read the book including many healthy recipes. The key is the 'whole person' approach to body, mind and spirit which focuses on changing your diet, periodic cleansing, meditation and the understanding that what we think creates our daily reality to a significant degree. The author's advice is implemented daily at the Grail Springs Wellness Centre in central Ontario. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I recommend this book for anyone looking for a kick-start towards good balanced living. For a health guide it was a surprisingly great read. I zoomed through it like a good novel as it has some great stories throughout. The author gets you to relate to the commonality between us all, the challenges we encounter in every day life. It is smart, simple, and clear. And it is gorgeous to look at too. Well put together with stunning photos and no shortage of helpful quick reference shopping guides, graphs, recipes and pros to live by. Well worth its reasonable price tag. This one will be referenced from my kitchen library often and for years to come.

Format: Paperback
Having both read the Grail Springs Holistic Detox book and participated in a recent 5 day program at Grail Springs I can attest to the value of the author's deep insights and practice. The book is an excellent guide to a healthy and balanced life integrating body, mind and soul. And Grail Springs is the place where one can learn and experience the life-changing process from an authentic teacher who has created her program based on many years of life experience in searching for ways to transform her own reality. I never felt better then I did after my Grail experience and it's great to have the book as an on-going guide. A must for serious seekers of a balanced and soulful life!

I so enjoyed this book! 'Grail Springs Holistic Detox: For Body, Mind & Spirit' is a treat for the eyes, the heart and the soul. Brimming with energy, enthusiasm and wisdom. Madeleine's 'joie de vivre' captivates the reader and her healthy recipes excite the taste buds. Her unique perspective on health promotes understanding and practical application. To be healthy is a daily commitment and this guides our choices well. Who of us cannot relate to the quest and the challenges we all face on our journey? Madeleine shares hers with grace and beauty. After reading the book I now look to a quest to visit the real 'Grail Springs' to experience the peace and tranquillity the book gives within. To a brilliant and exceptional life!

both inspiring and reassuring March 9 2008
By Rhonda Benbo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Grail Springs Holistic Detox is an amazing journey of self descovery, and an inspiring story which says "you can get there too"! The book demystifies detox cleanses and juice fasting with practical advice on how, when, and why. Grail Springs Holistic Detox is a comfortable and inspiring read with a gentle introduction to new ways to improve health, function and energy, while riding along with the author as she grows on her own personal journey. It is refreshing to see an author with humility and gratitude for the many teachers she has been exposed to. Her honesty about her own challenges and missteps gives the reader the reassurance that you, too, can accomplish change in your own life to gain better health and a stronger spirit. If you're curious about alternative forms of healthy living you'll enjoy this book, it's practical advice and recipes. I hope you'll also find a few "A-HA" momenents, as I did, in the process!

Healthy Living March 1 2008
By Patty James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had the pleasure of being introduced to Madeleine through my friend Dr. Elson Haas. I developed recipes and menus for Grail Springs and subsequently journeyed to this magical place to assist with the implementation of the recipes. Grail Springs is such a peaceful, health-promoting place and Madeleine practices what she preaches; she is the epitome of vibrant health. When the book arrived last week, I immediately sat down to read it and was greatly inspired. Madeleine has taken a good deal of complicated information and made it easy for anyone to follow. She gives excellent advice on the detoxification process and how to integrate many aspects of physical and mental health into your life. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
In good health,
Patty James
