Fasting is the world’s most ancient healing mechanism. It triggers a wondrous cleaning process that reaches right down to every cell and tissue in the body. Fasting is one of the best cures for the imbalances and diseases that occur due to our busy modern day live styles and diet. A detox is an extremely effective way to deal with illnesses that conventional medicine cannot cure. Fasting and detoxing is also an excellent preventative method, as most diseases start in our digestive tract and organs.

Reasons to Fast:

  • Eliminate toxins
  • Cleans organs and blood
  • Stress reduction
  • Aids digestion problems like constipation
  • Weight loss
  • Relief from aches and pains like arthritis
  • Better elimination
  • Increased assimilation of foods
  • Aids mental clarity, concentration
  • Releasing emotions, such as fear, anger and sorrow
  • Increased vitality
  • Clarity of mind
  • Receptivity
  • Heightened intuitive ability
  • Develops spiritual evolution

One of the most important benefits of fasting on this program is that it thoroughly cleans and detoxifies the bloodstream. This leads to an elimination of toxins and waste materials from the whole body.

Modern lifestyles put tremendous toxic strain on our vital organs and glands. Most of us, no matter how aware we are of our diet, have at times been exposed to processed foods, microwave rays, chemically sprayed crops, white flour, meat, drugs and medicines and improper food preparation. These lead to bowel problems and stagnation in the colon. This stagnation affects the brain and nervous system as well as digestion and excretion and these toxins can be released during periods of long fasting and colonic treatments. A quiet environment is crucial to this process.

You will be ensured a restful experience on your detox in Thailand and will be able to cleanse in the privacy of your own bungalow. The range of holistic treatments available will also help to relieve tiredness, harmonize the body on the physical and emotional level, and aid with the release of toxins and energetic blockage. As holistic therapists we can advise you which of our energy treatments or body work will work best with your body to aid the cleansing process.

A 7-day fast cleans the whole digestive tract including the transverse and ascending points and folds in the colon wall. It takes 7 days to cleanse the entire blood stream by fasting and 7 days to thoroughly rid the lymph system of toxins. We have many programs that incorporate the 7 day detox with a pre and post cleanse diet, so that you get the most out of your fast. A 3-day detox program cleans the digestive tract and is an effective ‘light’ cleanse as only after 24 to 36 hours of fasting the body switches from digesting to cleansing mode. If you can give yourself time for thoroughly cleaning your body we recommend the 7 day or longer detox program. We also have longer programs for those who want a deeper cleanse or for healing a specific condition.
