What is the difference between a detox program and weight loss program and the rejuvenation program?

The core of our program offerings lies the detox program, a transformative process designed to rid your body of accumulated toxins, chemicals, and parasites that have accumulated over time, profoundly impacting your overall health and vitality. Emphasizing juice fasting as a central component, this program facilitates weight loss as a natural outcome. Depending on your specific goals, we actively encourage incorporating exercise into your detox journey, as it synergistically enhances the weight loss process.

For those seeking a different approach, our rejuvenation program offers a unique alternative. While still encompassing all other detox protocols, it does not include juice fasting. Instead, this program provides three nutritious and wholesome meals per day, meticulously crafted to support optimal health. It caters to individuals who either aim to gain weight or, due to health reasons or specific medication requirements, are unable to partake in juice fasting.

Both programs are thoughtfully designed to address your individual needs and promote a renewed sense of well-being. Whether you're seeking weight loss or alternative detox options, our programs offer tailored solutions to enhance your health journey.

Can I continue my regular medications while on a detox program?

To ensure a safe and personalized experience, we kindly request that you provide details about any medications you are currently taking in our pre-program health assessment. By disclosing this information, we can tailor your program accordingly. It's important to note that under certain circumstances, it may be possible to reduce or eliminate the need for medication during the program. However, the final decision regarding medication adjustments will be discussed with our program director upon your arrival.

We do offer a full range of spa treatments and can organize many different natural healing practices that you may require.

What are the health benefits of a detox?

Despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet, regular exercise, and mindful choices, exposure to environmental toxins is inevitable. Our detox program offers a valuable solution by granting the digestive system a much-needed break, allowing other organs to prioritize detoxification. During a 7 day fasting period a complete cleansing of your bloodstream and a comprehensive elimination of toxins, waste, and other unwanted substances from your lymphatic system takes place resulting in substantial health benefits.

Our highly adaptable detox program can be tailored to address various medical concerns, including obesity, underweight, ibs, anorexia, diabetes, high or low blood pressure, candida, cholesterol, thyroid issues, and more. Detoxification encompasses a wide range of advantages that contribute to improved overall health and well-being.

One notable benefit of detoxing is its ability to promote detoxification through fasting. By tapping into the body's fat reserves, stored toxins are mobilized and eliminated, leading to a cleansing effect.

Furthermore, our programs provide vital rest for the digestive system. By abstaining from food during fasting, both digestion and elimination processes are revitalized, allowing the body to reset and optimize its functions.

Detoxification also plays a significant role in resolving inflammatory processes, such as those associated with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. It can alleviate allergic reactions like asthma and hay fever, bringing relief and enhancing well-being.

Moreover, detoxing aids in reducing abnormal fluid accumulations, such as edema in the ankles and legs or swelling in the abdomen. These fluid-related issues can be effectively addressed as the body undergoes the detox process.

Additionally, detox and fasting can correct high blood pressure without relying on medication. In the majority of cases, fasting helps normalize blood pressure, and adopting a health-supporting diet and lifestyle after the program ensures long-term stability.

Detoxification and fasting have demonstrated their efficacy in overcoming various harmful habits and addictions, including those related to tobacco, alcohol, and even drugs. Participants often experience a rapid dissipation of cravings for nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, and other substances, facilitating the journey to recovery.

Furthermore, detoxing contributes to improved skin health and brighter eyes. Many individuals witness the clearance of skin eruptions and observe clearer and more vibrant whites of the eyes after fasting.

Lastly, detoxification restores taste appreciation for wholesome natural foods. Participants frequently report heightened sensitivity in their taste buds post-fast, leading to a newfound enjoyment and appreciation for nutritious meals.

At new body and mind retreats, we offer the ideal environment to embark on a journey towards a healthful diet and lifestyle. Our detox and fasting programs not only provide motivation and enthusiasm for a fresh start but also lay the foundation for long-term well-being.

By rebalancing your metabolic equilibrium, our programs offer a natural and effective approach to achieve weight loss, improve body alignment, enhance overall fitness, and promote well-being. Simultaneously, the program aids in purging your body of accumulated toxins, chemicals, and parasites that may have hindered your health and vitality over the years.

What are the herbs and supplements that i will be taking?

We have carefully selected a range of herbs and supplements for our detox program to ensure optimal support for your body during the fasting process. Our program incorporates a daily intake of five shakes, expertly blended with a combination of powerful ingredients such as psyllium husks, bentonite clay, holy basil seeds and activated willow charcoal. These components work together harmoniously to effectively eliminate toxins from your digestive system and aid in the removal of impacted fecal matter from your colon walls, facilitated by the use of daily colonic irrigations.

To further enhance your well-being, we provide a vitamin supplement powder that is packed with essential proteins, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and alkalisers. These vital nutrients play a crucial role in maintaining your overall health throughout the program.

We also prioritize addressing potential parasite concerns in your digestive system. Our program includes the use of oregano oil, a potent herb known for its ability to combat parasites effectively. In addition, we incorporate fermented coconut water, which acts as a probiotic, helping to restore the balance of beneficial bacteria in your bowels.

By combining these carefully selected herbs and supplements, our detox program aims to provide comprehensive support for your body, ensuring a holistic approach to your health and well-being.

 

Will i feel hungry during the program?

You can expect to experience minimal hunger sensations throughout the program. When you refrain from eating for 24 to 36 hours, your body naturally reduces the production of digestive juices, which can typically trigger hunger pangs. However, our carefully formulated supplements are specifically designed to provide bulk and generate a sense of satiety in your stomach.

By incorporating these supplements into your program, you will feel a satisfying fullness, effectively minimizing any feelings of hunger. Our goal is to ensure that you can comfortably navigate the fasting period, allowing your body to focus on the detoxification process without significant disruptions or discomfort associated with hunger.

Why do i need to do a pre-cleanse?

The purpose of the pre-cleanse is to effectively prepare your body for the fasting process. By following a pre-cleanse regimen that primarily includes alkaline foods, your body undergoes a gradual transition, reducing the likelihood of experiencing intense healing crises during fasting. This gradual approach minimizes the potential shock to your system.

Both the pre-cleanse and the rejuvenation phase serve to ease your body into the fasting process, enabling a more manageable and comfortable experience as you embark on your journey towards detoxification and improved well-being.

I do not want to fast. What program do you recommend?

If fasting is not your preferred approach, we have an alternative program that may suit your needs called the rejuvenation program. This program encompasses same comprehensive range of activities, supplements, and dietary recommendations to support your well-being.

In the rejuvenation program, you will have the opportunity to enjoy three life food meals per day, carefully crafted to provide nourishment and promote rejuvenation. Additionally, you will have the option to incorporate two juices into your daily routine, further enhancing your nutritional intake.

While the rejuvenation program encompasses the same activities and supplements as our fasting program, it offers the flexibility of not requiring a complete fast.

By opting for the rejuvenation program, you can still benefit from a holistic approach to wellness, supporting your body's rejuvenation and overall health without the requirement of a full fasting experience.

What should i eat following my detox program?

After completing your detox program, it is important to ease back into regular eating gradually. We recommend breaking the fast by incorporating soft fruits into your diet, with papaya being an ideal choice. These fruits are gentle on the digestive system and provide essential nutrients to support your body's transition.

During the initial two days following the fast, we suggest opting for raw salads or lightly steamed vegetables and fruits. This approach ensures that your body continues to receive nourishment while gradually reintroducing more solid foods. These options are easy to digest and promote a gentle re-entry into regular eating habits.

It is worth noting that the longer you can sustain a healthy alkaline diet, the more positive effects you are likely to experience, and the longer your newfound state of wellness will persist. By prioritizing alkaline-rich foods and maintaining a balanced diet, you can continue to support your overall well-being and sustain the benefits achieved through the detox program.

Do i have to do colonics as part of my program?

While colonic irrigation is not mandatory for your program, we highly recommend incorporating it for optimal benefits. The colon, being one of the body's primary organs responsible for detoxification, plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. Over time, unhealthy lifestyle choices can lead to the accumulation of several kilograms of putrid fecal matter within the colon.

Considering these factors, colonic irrigation emerges as one of the most effective cleansing activities available to support your body. By gently flushing out accumulated waste, this procedure aids in the removal of toxins and promotes a healthier digestive system.

While the decision to include colonic irrigation ultimately rests with you, we strongly encourage its incorporation due to its significant potential for enhancing the detoxification process and revitalizing your overall well-being.
