Reasons to do a Detox Retreat:

Benefits of a Detox Retreat:
Detox is often seen as a short term solution to eliminate toxins from the body and assist with weight loss. However, it is much more as it helps to create the perfectly balanced conditions for our body to function how it is meant to.
What Happens When you Detox and Join a Detox Retreat:
- Helps to build a stronger immunity
- Increases energy and revitalises mental positivity
- Improve your complexion for a glowing radiant skin
- Helps to lose stagnant weight
- Eliminate toxins and rejuvenates cells
- Inspire healthy lifestyle changes
How to Detox:
Firstly, when starting a body detox, you’ll first need to lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process.
Furthermore, another hindrance to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. While these hormones can provide the “adrenaline rush” to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver. Fortunately, yoga and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress by resetting your physical and mental reactions to the inevitable stress life will bring.
How Often Should You Detox:
This is a really good question because if you detox for too long or too often you can loss valuable nutrients along with the toxins and leave your body depleted.
For this reason we recommend a full cleanse no more than 2 to 4 times a year.
Also, there are also times in your life where detoxing is either not beneficial or should be done under medical guidance. For example, when you are pregnant or breastfeeding and need to have enough nutrition to support another little person. Or, if you’re recovering from an illness and need to build your body up. Also, diabetics need to be careful of detoxing because they require a steady supply of energy. Lastly, if you have any illness or concerns with regards to detox, please contact us to discuss if it is right for you. Our onsite Nutritionist and local physician will be able to assist with any medical concerns.
Why Detox at Shanti-Som:
Leading Nutritionists have developed our signature Detox Program and clients are armed with the knowledge to take home and use for life. Additionally, Shanti-Som’s location is perfect for accessing the best organic and fresh ingredients used in our juice cleanse. For example, we source the following and will teach you how to use these in your everyday diet:
Beetroots are full of vitamins B3, B6 and C, in addition to being a valuable source of iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium that helps your body’s natural cleansing process. Additionally, the large amount of fibre in beetroot helps the body eliminate toxins and waste.
These small seeds help ensure that the toxins are properly removed from the body, they are also a source of Omega 3 oils. A few tablespoons of flax seeds every day will help immensely with the detoxification process.
One of the best fruits to use in a detox diet, offers a magnificent series of benefits. Firstly, lemons help turn toxins into solvable form, so that makes it easier for the body to eliminate them. Secondly, taking lemon juice with warm water first thing in the morning will help to balance the acidity of our body. You could even try to add the flax seeds to your lemon drink in the morning and get their benefits together.
This superfood is essential for any detoxification diet and is classified as one of the most important foods in depurative processes. It helps to cleanse and purify the blood, facilitates the elimination of fats and reduces blood pressure. More importantly, garlic is so powerful that it even helps with nicotine cleansing from the body and can easily be incorporated into your daily diet.
Rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals, apples are a food with great detoxification power as it helps toxins and waste to move quickly through the intestinal tract. Also, eating apples helps eliminate and prevent the build-up of plaque in the blood vessels. We recommend organic apples, as many conventionally grown apples have been shown to have high levels of pesticide residues.
