Benefits of a Detox Cleanse
Whether using water or juice, a fast can dramatically improve your life. Not only will it help you shift many stubborn pounds, it can greatly improve your digestive system, your skin and appearance as well as your overall health and mental clarity.
Why Choose a Juice Fast Retreat?
Juice fasting means consuming all your nutrients from vegetable and fruit juices and, unlike water fasting, it means you are still nourishing yourself. However, as with water fasting, by eliminating digestion your body can undertake many other tasks.
Fasting, in general, is one of the oldest medicinal therapies. As well as being an obvious way to lose weight, fasting has been a successful healing method for millennia and it is an excellent support to aid the recovery from a myriad of modern health afflictions.

What happens during a juice detox?
Here is the truth: a juice fast can certainly be a challenge!
It’s quite common to feel tired and sleepy for the first few days. Also, you may experience a few symptoms such as the odd headache, chills, etc., ranging from very mild to those somewhat more uncomfortable. They should all settle after a short while and give rise to greater clarity of mind and more energy that is vital.
Of course, you do lose weight. We can almost guarantee you’d lose a pound per day. Most people lose more than that.
Aiding good elimination while you fast is essential, especially as it helps get rid of the more challenging aspects of your detox process. Therefore, we strongly recommend colonic hydrotherapy and/or enemas be used in conjunction with this programme. You will receive full details of these and other therapies in your welcome pack.
How will I feel after my detox?
Once you have successfully completed your juice cleanse, you will feel much healthier and energized. Juice cleanses are a great way to lose weight and eliminate bad bacteria from your gut, so you’ll leave feeling lighter and alleviated from that bloated feeling, having improved your digestive system. Because our juices are so high in vitamins and minerals, it’s likely you’ll actually be introducing extra nutrients into the body that will help boost your overall health. Your immune system may be stronger, leaving you feeling more energetic.
And because you’ll be flushing toxins from the body, you’ll notice a change in face with a much improved complexion with a brighter skin tone and a radiant glow; wrinkles will definitely be less pronounced.
Will I put all the weight back on straight away?
Yes and no. Obviously if you go back to your old habits, eventually you will end up feeling and looking exactly as you came. However, embarking on a fast often acts like a fresh kick start to a new and healthier style of life. After your fast, you will be much less inclined to indulge in unhealthy choices.
Besides, if you wish, we will educate you in new healthier ways. Our health talks will guide you not to a new diet, but to a new life style. We don’t “tell you what to do”. We sit down with you, listen to your habits and design a few suggestions you may incorporate into your routine so that over time you will definitely feel the difference.
