Life Changing Detox Retreat
Our Life Changing Detox Retreat holidays at Shanti-Som is an inspiring, enjoyable and effective way to kick start a healthier way of life. A comprehensive detox gives your body a chance to rebalance. It can mean losing the weight that you have struggled with for years, kick-starting a healthy lifestyle or improving long-standing chronic health problems.
Juice diet with extra nutritional support
The detox programme is based on a juice diet with extra nutritional support through supplements and light vegetable broths. Many clients travel far and wide to experience this detox method here in Spain.
Long term care and advice
We understand that the most difficult part of any retreat is translating what you’ve learned at Shanti-Som with real life back home. At the end of the retreat you will receive a Post detox guide and our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have when you are back home. Let us know!
Detoxing not only helps remove toxins from the body, which improves skin complexion and body functions, it also helps to raise the metabolism, which in turn leads to weight loss. There are some excellent purifying programmes to follow, such as the Detox Retreat at Shanti Som in Marbella. It gives your entire body the ultimate spring clean and teaches you simple tricks you can use if you want to carry on detoxing when you get home.
We’re lucky to be surrounded by lots of fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables here in Spain, but which ones are the super detoxifying foods and how can we incorporate them into our diet?
Beetroot – Beets are packed with vitamins B3, B6 and C, as well as being a valuable source of iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium, which all help with the natural cleansing process of the body. The high amount of fibre in beetroot helps the body to eliminate toxins and waste. The best kind for detoxing is natural, un-pickled beets.
Flaxseeds – These little seeds help to ensure that toxins are eliminated properly by binding and flushing them from the intestinal tract. Also a source of Omega 3 oils, a few spoonfuls of ground flaxseeds every day will help immensely with the detox process.
Lemon – One of the best fruits to use in a detox diet, it offers a number of benefits. Firstly, lemons help to convert toxins into a water-soluble form that can easily be excreted from the body. Secondly, by drinking lemon in warm water first thing in the morning it will help to balance out the acidity in the foods we have consumed. You could even try grinding up your flaxseeds and adding them to your morning lemon drink.
Garlic – This super-food is essential to any detox diet and is ranked as one of the most important foodstuffs available. It helps to cleanse and thin the blood, reduces fats and lowers blood pressure. Garlic is so powerful it even helps with clearing nicotine from the body and can be easily incorporated into your everyday diet.
Apples – Rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals, apples are a great detox food and help toxins and waste to move more quickly through the intestinal tract. Eating apples also helps clear and prevent plaque build-up in the blood vessels. We recommend organic apples, as some supermarket brands have been shown to contain higher levels of pesticide residues.
2 Raw Beetroots
1 Stick of Celery
½ Small Pineapple
Place all prepared ingredients into a blender or food processor and whiz until smooth.
Adjust to preferred consistency with mineral water if required.
Pour into a glass and serve.
The stunning colour of the beetroot makes this a fantastic juice to look at and it tastes refreshing. Beetroots are a well-known tonic and are also known for their effectiveness in helping to reduce bad LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol. Keeping up with the appealing colour of this juice, the addition of flavoursome strawberries adds a mega dose of vitamin C − just five strawberries can give you your recommended daily allowance of this important vitamin.
Strawberries also contain the lesser-known vitamin K, necessary for effective blood clotting. The addition of celery boosts the electrolyte balance of the body with a helping of organic sodium. These powerful ingredients blend perfectly with the juicy sweetness of nutritious pineapple.
