The Healthy Alternative from the Ground Up
Specializing in Raw Juice Cleansing, Detoxification and Rejuvenation Programs


This 173-acre estate and century farmhouse built in 1875 is a dream come true. Walking and working on this beautiful land brings much joy to our family, friends and clients. Restoring the earth back to its natural state, we shared a sense of integrity and a sacred promise kept. 
As we are all connected, the process of land being returned to its natural balance is much the same as our own human healing process.


We invite you here to feel this wonderful vibrational energy, to witness and become a part of this healing energy and to continue your own healing path.

- David

I bring 30 years of experience to my healing practice. I studied at the Kripalu Institute in Massachusetts. I teach Yoga, Reiki and Bodywork. I bring into my healing practice nutritional consultations, which help to pinpoint your personal nutritional needs.

I believe that cleansing, combined with nutritional support and specific energy work brings the body back into balance at a fast rate.

I provide Life Directions counselling for those who want to introduce a new way of being in their relationships, work and fulfilling their life's purpose.

I teach you ways to deal with stress, relax and meditate to restore clarity of mind and a vibrant spirit.

Ms. Mano McNabb

After struggling with my health for years with stomach and colon problems, and hormonal imbalances, I began the healthy alternative. I finally made the connection to what was really at the core of my ill health. Now, eleven years later, my whole being is ready for the menopausal years. Feeling healthy and happy is a right for every woman. My focus is in sharing with women the importance of eating healthy, making healthier choices in their lives, melting away stress, and making space to realize their passion and potential in life, and bringing joy into all of their being. These changes rekindle one's spiritual life and nourish the soul. Women's emotional, mental, and physical health is deteriorating at a rapid rate. Their relationships are suffering and they have lost themselves to overwork and high levels of stress. The result of this is depression and disease. Cancer in women is reaching epidemic proportions. This year is 2003. I urge you to stop for a moment, come to Nonpareil where in Nature and stillness you will inwardly listen to your body's needs and your heart and soul's desire. Take the time to be cared for.
