I learned from Dr. Fuhrman that if you give your body the right foods, exercise and rest, your body will be able to heal itself and transform itself in ways you never imagined. I thank him for saving my life and allowing me to thrive physically for the first time in my entire life. This is the gift he has given me, and I am forever indebted and grateful.

Happier Than Ever

I was determined to eat 100 percent plant-based, even as the doctors and the nutritionist in the hospital advised against it. I was told I would be on statins, triglyceride meds and two types of insulin for the rest of my life. Now, I am no longer diabetic and happier than ever. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Fuhrman and the Nutritarian Eat to Live program.
Reversed My Type 2 Diabetes
Marina P.

Before I found Dr. Fuhrman and the Nutritarian lifestyle I had lost hope after countless unsuccessful yo-yo diets. Over two years I lost 160 pounds following this lifestyle and reversed my type 2 diabetes. I would not be here with a new lease on life and mission in life without Dr. Fuhrman. Thank you and blessings from the bottom of my heart.

Unless otherwise indicated, our programs are open to participants 18 years of age and older.

To encourage a healthy environment we ask that guests not consume alcohol or meat in our public spaces, however, guests may enjoy these items in their rooms.

Our property is always smoke-free.

Yes, we ask that guests with food allergies simply inform us so we can communicate those needs to our chef. Typically, we label potential allergens such as gluten, dairy, and nuts.

We do have lodging and event venues that are ADA-compliant. Due to the topography of our mountain campus, some are easier to access than others, so please speak to Guest Services (800.392.6870) prior to registering to ensure we can best accommodate your needs. We also have shuttles that run frequently throughout the campus.

We are committed to the safety of our guests and staff. Our mountaintop location and the surrounding areas are spacious, remote, safe, and secure.

  • It is safe to leave your windows open—and necessary for proper airflow!
  • Nature surrounds our campus, and it’s common to see rabbits, deer, gophers, wild turkeys, and other small animals. Please give them space, and they’ll do the same for you. We’ve never had a safety incident with animals on campus.

You can help!

  • If you come across an animal on campus or a trail, give it space, and please do not attempt to pet or feed it.
  • There’s no need to bring valuables to the retreat center; leaving them at home is best.
