The Live Longer Retreat Telluride will feature groundbreaking wellness initiatives
Is it possible to change your wellness lifestyle forever in one week? The short and sweet answer from Telluride is ‘yes.’
Throughout this summer, Telluride Ski Resort and The Peaks Resort & Spa will host a series of wellness retreats designed to provide attendees with cutting-edge knowledge and tools to revolutionize your lifestyle, and even preventing or reducing age-related ailments like dementia, heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and obesity.
The goal? To ultimately prolong your life and overall happiness.
Led by internationally-renowned internist and gastroenterologist Dr. Alan Safdi, the Live Longer Retreat program boasts a prestigious team of wellness, nutrition, bodyworks and fitness experts. The lineup of physician-run initiatives will include personalized one-on-one coaching and consultation with physical trainers and dietitians.
“These retreats are simply unlike anything being offered out there right now. And it’s easy to make that claim, because there just isn’t,” Dr. Safdi said. “We provide the kind of meaningful education you should have gotten in school. Because the truth is, there is no “one thing” that is the ultimate answer for wellness. It’s a variety of components—eating right, exercising right, understanding how your body works, along with the kinds of questions you should be asking the doctor and how to make sense of all the jargon and misleading information out there in the world.”
In addition, Dr. Safdi will head daily educational lectures, hikes and activities—along with pre-retreat private meetings to fully customize an individual’s needs for the retreat, and post-retreat follow ups with Dr. Safdi himself.
“One of the important aspects of these retreats is how we dissect the epidemiology of wellness in the daily lectures,” Dr. Safdi said. “Is there proof in the longevity of lifespan through lifestyle change? We have that proof. Based on the different type of populations that we’ll be discussing, whether it’s the Seventh-day Adventists or populations in Sardinia or Okinawa, we study their behaviors to find the right methods to emulate for your lifestyle change. It’s fascinating stuff, and I’m still learning something new everyday.”
Attendees will also enjoy luxurious accommodations at The Peaks Resort & Spa in Telluride, which is included in the cost, along with interactive meals and cooking demos including 6 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 4 dinners.
Limited to only 15 attendees per retreat, the innovative program is scheduled throughout the summer, starting on June 3-9, then July 15-21, Aug. 19-25, and Sept. 23-29.
Dr. Alan Safdi is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. He is a Fellow of the American College of Gastroenterology, was elected President of the Ohio Gastroenterology Society in 2013 and is on the board of the Digestive Diseases National Coalition. He co-founded and served as President of the Ohio Gastroenterology and Liver Institute and the Consultants for Clinical Research. He served Deaconess Hospital on its Executive Committee and as Chairman of the subsection of Gastroenterology for over 20 years.
“The toughest thing to get across is how enjoyable this really is,” Dr. Safdi said. “It’s eye-opening. The whole week is action-packed with a ton of fun activities to dive into, all of which is easy enough to let you continue doing long after you’ve left the retreat.”
