A place where dreams really do come true…
My name is Diana Stobo, and over ten years ago I dreamed of having a place where people from all over the world could come and feel as if they were in “HEAVEN ON EARTH”. A place where they could relax, be themselves, move their bodies in gentle ways, eat amazing food, and know that Life was good.
I was a retreat/spa “junkie” when I was building my family, and whenever I returned home from my week away, I would ask myself, “How can I bring this experience into my everyday life?” And I eventually realized, it was like any habit, you just keep practicing until it becomes a norm, a way of being. So, I would go away once or twice a year to remind and educate myself in the glory of “healthy living”.
Well, I want to tell all of you that DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE. My dream became a reality and I have created “HEAVEN ON EARTH” and I named it simply, THE RETREAT because we all have a different definition of “retreating” and we get to create our own experience everywhere we go.
My mission is to provide everything you may need and want for the perfect wellness vacation:
- Physical Activity
- Stress Reduction
- Cultural Involvement
- Organic Whole Foods
- Spiritual Connectedness
My Story - How I Lost 100 Pounds: Diana Stobo's Raw Food Diet
The Diana Stobo Journey to Better Health and Wellness
Diana Stobo is the award-winning author of the healthy lifestyle book Get Naked Fast! Stripping Away the Foods That Weigh You Down — the best title for a health book ever. This hot-selling title is a practical guide that Diana used to heal herself from illness, lose 1oo+ pounds, and change her life forever. In the video “My Story,” Diana shares her own story of illness and her “moment of truth.”
“Like most people, I struggled with my weight most of my life. There was simply too much conflicting information out there that overwhelmed my mind and ultimately my body. In my late 20s while pregnant with twins I reached 247 pounds. Although I wasn’t more than 30 to 40 pounds overweight most of my life, the toxic overload was enough for my body to get sick and exhausted. “It wasn’t until I had myriad of health issues — including thyroiditis, chronic fatigue syndrome, debilitating pain, gastritis, and eventually bleeding ulcers — that I finally took my life into my own hands. With three young children and a full life ahead of me, I decided that it was time to remove the foods that weighed me down. I studied, researched, and ultimately discovered the foods I needed to take out of my diet. But then what was I supposed to eat? The answer was fresh produce: fruits and vegetables that heal the body. I began making juices and smoothies every day. I lost 10 pounds in 10 days, my eyes were brighter, my energy soared, and my life became pain free and full of joy. I then used my background as a chef to create recipes that were as delicious as my old favorites but much better for my body.
