Jason Vale, Juice Master
“The Jamie Oliver of Juice” OK Magazine
Jason Vale has sold over 5 million books worldwide and is highly regarded as one of the most influential people in the world of juicing and health. Jason is the number one best-selling author of 13 books, DVD’s, App’s and CD’S on juicing, health, fitness and junk food addiction. Jason is also the ‘Executive Pro-juicer’ of his hugely successful and groundbreaking documentary Super Juice Me! Where Jason tests his theory that chronic disease is caused by toxicity and nutritional deficiency, and that the best way to treat disease is simply with high quality nutrition.
“Jason Vale’s approach is all about taking control of your health and using common sense and logic. Always delivered with his unique humour and most importantly, easy to apply to your own life” – Beverley Knight
For Jason, juicing isn’t simply about creating a beautiful-tasting drink, it’s about so much more, it’s a way of life. He is the living example of the amazing results that can be achieved by incorporating juicing into our daily lives. Having suffered from asthma, severe psoriasis, eczema, extreme hay fever, obesity and many addictions including a 40-a-day cigarette habit, Jason cured himself through the power of freshly extracted fruit and vegetable juices. His asthma has now vanished; his eczema has disappeared; his psoriasis – which covered almost every inch of his body from top to toe – is 95% clear; his hay fever has improved dramatically and he is no longer overweight. Jason puts all of this down to the power of freshly extracted juices and is now on a mission to ‘Juice the World’.
” Jason is the absolute King of healthy living, he is inspiration but realistic. Not only are his juicing recipes sensational but his knowledge of nutrition, addiction and allergies make him a leading expert in health and wellbeing – Janey Lee Grace (Author & Co-Presenter, BBC Radio 2)
Jason Vale is most famous for his 7lbs in 7 days Super Juice Diet which hit the number one best-selling spot of ALL books on Amazon and Play.com. It also knocked the Da Vinci Code from the top spot of ALL books and is a favourite amongst many celebrities. The smart phone app based on the same programme has been number 1 in its category for the past two years.
Jason has featured on many television and radio shows including This Morning, Sunday Brunch, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Radio 1 Xtra, Chris Evans and regularly features in leading magazine publications including Hello!, OK!, New Magazine, Closer, Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Zest, The Express and The Daily Mail (to name but a few!). He is the leading expert in the UK and his message is rapidly spreading across Europe and the USA.
Please note that as Jason is on his mission to juice the world he cannot be guaranteed to be at the retreat during a particular date.
