We Care, 15 minutes north of Palm Springs, focuses on detoxifying the body through fasting, flushing, and sweating. Visitors are asked to stick to fruit, vegetables, juices, and herb teas (and two tablespoons of olive oil at bedtime) for four days before arrival. Retreat founder Susana Lombardi is especially enthusiastic about colonic-irrigation therapy and We Care's cocktails of enzymes, purified water, and wheatgrass and vegetable juices, designed to release toxins from the body. Relaxing happens at the swimming and hot mineral pools and during daily yoga sessions.
