The Vita Health Wellness Centre at Verdura Golf & Spa Resort in Sicily offers four programmes for:
. Each is tailored to individual client needs following diagnostic tests. All are available as 7-day or 14-day programmes. For further details please refer to the individual programme overviews.
What makes the Vita Health Programmes unique compared to the programs offered at other spas?
The legacy of 25 years of pioneering medical and nutritional research, the Vita Health programmes feature a balanced and integrated approach to health, combining state¬of¬the¬art technology with advanced natural health techniques. The programmes are based on the extensive experience and knowledge of Dr. Eccles, a leading, forward¬thinking medical doctor who specialises in nutritional, non¬invasive and anti¬ageing medicine. All programmes include advanced detoxification methods and therapies tailored to your individual needs. Advanced nutritional supplement programmes are based on effective therapies developed at Dr Eccles’ successful clinical practice in London’s Harley Street. Dietary programmes and menus are designed by Amelia Freer, an expert Spa Nutritionist and Michelin-starred chef, Fulvio Piergangelini, in collaboration with Dr. Eccles. After your visit at Verdura, you will be invited to join a follow¬ up programme for optimal health maintenance.

for further information.
Do I have to choose a programme before I arrive?
Yes. We need an advanced picture of your medical history and your health goals so your chosen programme can be tailored to your individual needs, and so you can make the most of your time at Vita Health upon arrival.
Can I speak to someone about the programmes in more detail?
Yes. Please call +39 0925 998 060 to speak to a member of the Vita Health team; you can also e-mail us at
I can’t commit to a whole week, are shorter programs available?
Currently, all Vita Health programmes require a minimum of 7 days attendance.
Am I obligated to participate in every part of the programme? What if I’m too exhausted and can’t do anymore in a day?
The programme can be modified in accordance to your response. We recommend guests complete the entire program for optimum results.
How will the Vita Health programmes benefit me?
All four programmes are designed to improve health, which benefits a young and healthy person as well as an older person. Clients who have existing health conditions such as migraines, fibromyalgia, overweight, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleeping disorders, stress, addictions, psoriasis, allergies, heart problems, anxiety, depression, arthritis, rheumatism or other health problems can also benefit from the Vita Health programmes. For further details please refer to our individual programme overviews. Our doctors will advise you if any part of the programme is unsuitable for you.
Will I feel comfortable if I come alone?
Single guests feel very comfortable at Verdura Golf & Spa Resort. Some guests come alone to spend time by themselves and the resort’s spacious grounds provide an ideal space to relax and unwind. For guests who prefer to socialise, Verdura has a variety of lounges and terraces, and offers many activities, so it is easy to meet fellow guests.
Can I attend with someone who is not participating in the programme?
Yes, though bear in mind you will have a designated schedule and specific meal times.
I would like to attend with a group of people, how do I book?
To arrange a group booking please call the Vita Health reservations team on +39 0925 8060, or e-mail
What can I expect upon arrival?
You will be welcomed by our Guest Relations team and shown to your
room or suite
. Depending on your arrival time, your scheduled appointment with our spa receptionist may follow shortly after, so we can take you through your appointments and help arrange your programme agenda.
Are children allowed to join the medical program at the resort?
The programs are designed for adults (over 18s) and are not appropriate for children.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are rare, though guests may experience mild detox effects – which feel like mild flu symptoms - in weight loss and detoxification programmes. These can be reduced by keeping the body well hydrated, and the programmes also feature advanced nutritional supplements which are aimed at supporting the body’s ability to detox without duress.
Are there any dangers associated with Infrared technology?
Usually not. The Far Infrared therapy at Vita Health is delivered in a sauna, so the experience is like being in a regular sauna, except the heating is more direct and more efficient, offering a greater detox process than a conventional sauna. It is important to keep hydrated, and good nutritional support is paramount.
I have an existing health condition, can I still participate in the Vita Health programmes?
This depends on the nature of your existing health condition; it is advisable to obtain clearance from your own doctor before embarking on a Vita Health programme.
I am currently pregnant, can I still participate in the Vita Health programmes?
All Vita Health programmes incorporate a detox element and thus are not appropriate during pregnancy.
Can I join two programmes consecutively?
It is possible to join two programmes consecutively if our doctors are confident your system is robust enough. We will do this by examining the results of both your pre-arrival and your diagnostic tests at Vita Health before confirming your attendance in two consecutive programmes.
What happens to my samples? Can you send the results to my doctor?
Your samples are sent to bespoke laboratories for analysis, and the results will be forwarded to our doctors at Vita Health at Verdura. A copy of your results will be placed in your Vita Health Personal Programme Pack, which you may wish to share with your doctor, and can be e-mailed to you upon request. If we discover any abnormalities that require further investigating when examining your test results, we will seek your permission in order to communicate with your own doctor.
