Our Detox Program…
Is suitable for anyone who is serious about transforming their health!
During your fasting (abstinence from food) period, your body will be purged of long-term accumulated toxins and acid wastes which are affecting its ability to absorb nutrients. Your entire excretory system will be cleansed and rejuvenated, clogged bowels will be cleared of up to 6 kg (12 pounds) of mucoid material, dirty lymph and blemished skin will be cleaned and dirty kidneys and bladders will be flushed out. This program includes daily parasite zapping, a kidney and liver flush and daily self-administered colonic irrigation.
Your Fasting & Detox Retreat will combine delicious juices, nutritional super foods, yoga, meditation, Thai massage and herbal steam baths. All designed to promote the quick and efficient elimination of toxins.
As the body and mind will react to the cleansing and detoxification process, we will be right here making sure that you are comfortable and secure throughout your stay. Each day you will witness yourself going through an amazing process of change, affecting the way you see and live your life!
Detoxification is a profound method of healing oneself naturally and in order to do it properly; we recommend that you make a plan to take a physical, emotional and mental rest during your program.
Flushing out Acids:
The first and foremost strategy in our detox program is to flush acid residues out of the blood, lymph, tissues and organs. Almost all forms of internal toxicity cause a state of acidosis in the body which:
- suppresses our immune response
- interferes with our normal metabolism
- inhibits digestion and assimilation
- promotes fungal and bacterial infections and;
- causes all sorts of other biological malfunctions and ill health.
Of all the excretory organs, the colon is the most abused and overloaded these days. Due to a lack of fibre in the diet, a dependency on processed foods, little, if any exercise and high stress levels, the average Westerner today carries about 5 – 6 kg of dense, rubbery mucoid material (a thick toxic sludge) imbedded in their bowels! This festering waste can lead to the on-set of disease and increases your risk of developing collateral cancer (the No.2 cancer killer!)
During our detox program you will get the opportunity to ‘dredge this drain’ by taking our Colon Detox supplement and performing daily self-administered colonic irrigation. The Colon Detox supplement contains psyllium husk, bentonite clay and flaxseeds which act like a fibrous bolus, sweeping through your bowel, loosening and helping you to eliminate mounds of impacted waste during your daily colonic irrigation. In addition to cleaning the colon, the colonic irrigation will trigger a strong detox response in the liver and throughout your body. The sheer volume and incredible foul appearance of putrid mucoid waste that comes tumbling out (even after days of not eating) is just incredible!
Until you do this, regardless of how well you cleanse your blood and tissues by other means, the sludge in your bowels will continuously seep toxins right back into your bloodstream!
Your liver performs over 500 functions for your body. One of its most important roles is to filter toxic wastes and poisons from your blood stream. If your blood is constantly being polluted with excess acid residues from poor eating habits, alcohol, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs, stress hormones and other acid-forming factors, it eventually gets overloaded and becomes deeply congested with toxic debris. This in turn affects your liver function and causes excess wastes then to get deposited in the joints and other tissues, causing weight gain, arthritis, tissue toxicity and disease.
Many people try to attack their symptoms, especially weight gain, with fad diets, high impact aerobics, stomach stapling and toxic drugs (such as appetite suppressants, laxatives and diuretics) but what they have failed to consider, is that the underlying cause may be LIVER DYSFUNCTION.
The state of your liver has a huge bearing upon how well you live, how long you will live and how you will look and feel!
Globally, one in every ten persons suffers with some type of liver, bile duct or gall bladder disease. Liver cancer is one of the most common cancers in men and has a poor outlook.
During our Detox Program, you have the opportunity to support and improve your liver function by:
- taking liver cleansing herbs
- Doing a Liver Flush
This will increase the ability of your liver to filter your blood, burn fat and pump fat and toxins out of the body through bile (a yellowy green coloured liquid) which is produced to break down fats and fat soluble toxins (these may otherwise become trapped in your fatty tissues leading to weight gain and cellulite). Furthermore, you will dramatically reduce your risk of gallbladder disease / surgery!
Kidneys & Bladder
The kidneys help filter acid wastes from the bloodstream, processing approximately 1 litre of blood per minute. Excessive acid wastes in the blood due to poor diet, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs along with other lifestyle factors can severely corrode the delicate tissues in which blood filters through the kidneys. It can also cause the formation of kidney stones and inflammation of the bladder and urinary tract. By drinking our herbal kidney teas, they will facilitate the rapid excretion of toxic wastes and protect your kidneys from damage.
Skin is the largest organ of the body and an enormous amount of toxic waste passes through the skin, especially in hot weather, when the pores remain open day and night. During a detox, toxic residues become very concentrated in perspiration and they can cause damage to the skin as they pass through for excretion. Strong, foul body odour and clammy sweat may manifest during your Detox Program. An effective method of facilitating skin detoxification is Thai Herbal Steam baths which draw toxins out through the skin whilst also soothing and hydrating the skin tissue with healing herbal essences. Skin allergies and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis are dramatically improved during the cleansing process.
The lungs excrete carbon dioxide and other volatile gaseous wastes from the blood while absorbing oxygen, negative ions and other elements from the air and transferring them into the bloodstream. When the blood is highly toxic, such as during a detox program, its capacity to carry oxygen is reduced. By learning deep breathing exercises during our program, you will properly oxygenate your blood and tissues, thereby helping to eliminate acidosis while also facilitating rapid excretion of carbon dioxide, mucous and other gaseous wastes from your lungs.
