Welcome to Dr. Cinque's Health Retreat - offering Supervised Fasting
|Hello. I am Dr. Ralph Cinque (pronounced Sin-kay).
Welcome to my website. I operate a business from my home that is called Dr. Cinque's Health Retreat.
|It is one of the few recognized fasting centers in the United States. I have been providing an environment for fasting since 1976, having trained with Dr. Herbert Shelton in San Antonio, Texas, and with Dr. Alec Burton in Sydney, Australia. Guests come here to fast to lose weight, to detoxify, and to improve their general health. Fasting is not as difficult as you might think, and I do all I can to make it a comfortable experience for everyone. Fasting is also an excellent way to overcome bad habits and make a fresh start at a healthy lifestyle.
I am a graduate of UCLA and Western States Chiropractic College, but, I am no longer in practice as a chiropractor. I was licensed to practice Chiropractic in three states: California, Oregon, and Texas. I was also a founding member and past president of the International Association of Hygienic Physicians.
After fasting, the eating program centers around fresh fruits and vegetables and other whole natural foods. Much of the food is organically grown, and in season, we have our own organic vegetable garden. We also have excellent provisions for exercising, but only after fasting- it is advisable to rest and relax while fasting. A little walking is OK, but nothing strenuous. Letting go of stress is also important while fasting, and the atmosphere here is peaceful, relaxing, and supportive.
We maintain an organic vegetable garden both in winter and summer. We also have fig trees, pear trees, and pomegranate. We also have an asparagus patch and two pecan trees. So, we are really into growing homegrown food. But, the food we buy is mostly organic and always excellent quality. All in all, I try to offer everyone who comes here a restful and rejuvenating experience in a recuperative environment, and I hope that it will be the start of a new and better way of life for each of them.
I graduated from UCLA in 1972 and Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon in 1976. I have been supervising fasting most of my adult life, and I think it is safe to say that I am one of the most experienced fasting practitioners in the world. After graduating, I worked for two years with the renowned Dr. Herbert Shelton in San Antonio, Texas from 1976 to 1978. I later did a second residency with the esteemed Dr. Alec Burton in Sydney, Australia in 1989. I founded the Hygeia Health Retreat in Yorktown, Texas in 1979 which operated until 1994. Since April 1, 1995, I have been the director of Dr. Cinque's Health Retreat located at 305 Verdin Drive, Buda, Texas 78610 . (Buda is a small rural community 5 miles south of Austin. See Location Map.)
