Personalised Nutritional Therapy


As an additional activity you may wish to add on a one-to-one nutritional therapy session with Polly Douglas. This will be a personalised plan for you specifically. The retreat will teach you general information, but there is nothing better than having a personalised plan. This session will look at you as a whole person, your medical history, current signs and symptoms and it will go into much more detail than is possible during the group setting of the retreat. You will be given an individualised diet plan and specific supplement and functional test suggestions, if required.


These sessions could be carried out either on the Monday afternoon (additional cost £70) or on the following Tuesday, if you would like to stay on for an extra night (additional cost £95 including B&B and use of Arnbeg Cottage on Tuesday).


Additional activities could include:

  • food allergy tests (an additional £50 will be charged to cover the cost of the test). Results will be given within an hour. These would be carried out on monday afternoon, at the end of the retreat. For more information click here.
  • Mindfulness sessions
  • It may be possible to book a massage, reflexology or other treatments with local practitioners, please let us know your requirements at the time of booking. Additional charges will apply.
