I recently finished a 21 day water fast in Koh Phangan, Thailand, went on a deep journey to my inner essence as well as experienced profound healing on a physical, mental and emotional level. I opted for the 28 nights renew and revitalise program at Orion Healing Centre, which promises to be a potent way to overall rejuvenation and restoration of the body from the inside out. As it is a blend of their unique fasting protocol and their healthy living holiday program, I did not only lose a lot of weight during my stay but also felt all of my energy levels restored after working full-time as a raw-vegan chef all around the world for the last few years. Besides the beautiful connections I made here, I tried many of the complementary holistic healing therapies the Centre offers, such as Reiki, Chi Nei Tsang, Yoga as well as Thai Massage. A lot of emotions came up for me during the detox program but I received great support and professional guidance from the whole Wellness Team which made the process I went through more easeful. Another great benefit of the program I chose is that guests tend to get a much longer integration and reintroduction of healthy foods in comparison to Orion’s shorter programs. Therefore, I luckily had the opportunity to nourish myself for some days with blissful and delicious vegan meals from Orion Café after my fasting. I decided to stay another month on Koh Phangan to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the island as well as the amazing raw vegan cakes and healthy desserts at Orion Cafe, which was exactly what I needed after my detox.
