What is a Detox Spa Retreat?
“My liver can clean my body for me, thank you very much.”
That’s true, and we agree. The human body actually has the remarkable ability to detox itself, but the problem is we tax it regularly with poor lifestyle choices. Immersion in a program which has the total removal of toxic substances we’ve come to think of as “normal” — especially refined sugar, alcohol and caffeine — can get you in the right “head space” to stop junking up the works, jump start your system’s own healing tools, and teach you to appreciate, and even crave, a clean-eating palate.
So how do we define a Detox Retreat? A Detox Spa or Retreat is a facility which has developed and encourages guests to follow either a “Detox Diet” or a dietary plan which focuses on unprocessed or raw food, fruits and vegetables or vegan diets, always with the elimination of refined sugar, caffeine, tobacco and alcohol, which the facility’s directors believe will have detoxifying effects. Detox Spas often offer colon hydrotherapy (colonics) and/or hydrotherapy which they believe will aid in a “body cleanse.” ©
Tip: We believe great care, advance study, and medical advice from a physician should be undertaken by guests before considering following a juicing or elimination Detox Diet for any period of time.
