Redeem Health started in 2013 by Nadder Montassir to deliver water-based fasting retreats for individuals suffering from different chronic diseases and bad habits after he himself experienced significant positive health transformation when he took this journey himself. 

  Participants come to fast and detoxify, enabling the body to heal itself from different diseases and also break bad habits. 

A cornerstone of Redeem Health's program is to empower attendees with the knowledge of how to adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle.


After great results from water based fasting retreats, Redeem Health now also offers a complete juice detox program that also focuses on giving you knowledge to help you adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle.  In this program, our signature Plant-based juice smoothies and soups are offered and complemented by wellness, fitness activities and educational workshops to help you revitalize yourself, rejuvenate, get Fitter and lose weight.


Redeem Health was created to promote a holistic and comprehensive approach towards a healthy living through diet and lifestyle. All Redeem Health programs and services seek to provide knowledge and eco-friendly sustainable solutions to diet and lifestyle.
