The Shalem Experience

Change your life and take part in our invigorating Lifestyle Medicine Program. In 5 or 12 days, you will  learn how to reduce stress and pain naturally and achieve a healthy balance of mind and body. Let us show you how effective plant-based diet and natural solutions can be and guide you on the path to ultimate health and wellness.

The goal of our entire program is for you to experience what healthy living is all about, so you are inspired to live it at home. We use simple yet powerful health-promoting practices that you can easily do at home with equipment you already own, and use non-expensive natural ingredients that are readily available where you live. We will show you how to get the best exercise without the need for expensive equipment, and our lectures/ workshops will equip you to apply the Lifestyle Medicine principles to your personal context and busy program.

From the food to the activities, everything is designed to suit every fitness level. You will soon feel relaxed, restored, and motivated to live your best life.
