Detoxification – Rejuvenation – Regeneration

Juice & Veggies at Casa de la Vida, Tepoztlan, Mexico

At Casa de la Vida guests can choose between 3 All-Inclusive Detox packages to suit their needs. Offerings include a package that can be an introduction to detoxification with a weekend retreat, or a longer stay that enables the guest to go deeper by allowing more time for the detox process. Each package has a detailed description on what it includes. Here we give general information on what is detoxification, why to do it and how it benefits the body and mind.




Detoxification is simply a cleansing of body tissues from the accumulation of toxins. In the course of life we accumulate toxins in our body as a result of improper diet, poor circulation, lack of exercise, fatigue, stress, environmental pollution as in the air we breathe; pesticides and other chemicals in food and water, food additives and preservatives in commercially-produced foods and toxic acids that are normal products of cell metabolism. Over time the toxicity gets greater and we get sicker.

We may develop tiredness, lack of energy, frequent colds, sinus problems, poor digestion and poor elimination, constipation, weight gain and weight problems, allergies, skin disorders, high cholesterol, heart problems, liver problems, diabetes, and more.

Nearly all of our body malfunctions can be traced to toxemia – an accumulation of toxins. The body will naturally repair itself when cleansed of toxins and provided with food rich in essential nutrients, properly digested and absorbed. The aim is to get to the root cause of the problem which in most cases is toxicity and congestion and to bring balance back to the body.




Detoxification helps to eliminate accumulated toxins from the body, thus helping restore normal functioning of organs, tissues and cells.

There are seven channels of elimination: Colon, Lungs, Liver, Skin, Kidneys, Blood and Lymph. Detoxification helps improve the functioning of these organs through elimination channels, helping improve digestion, absorption of nutrients, elimination of wastes, improving oxygenation and thus helping regenerate and rejuvenate the body. The results are improved health, renewed energy, and normalizing of weight and body functions.

Guests will also find that the longer detox packages (Detox Retreat & Yoga Retreat, and Elixir of Life Retreat – The Ultimate Detox Program) are often effective for weight loss, which is a by-product of these programs. The amount of weight loss naturally depends on the duration of each program.

We offer three different detox programs, each tailored to your specific needs. These include:

  • The Detox & Rejuvenate Weekend: This is an introduction to the detoxification process which involves a Juice Fasting program. Our guests will consume fruit and vegetable juices, home-grown wheat grass, mineral broth and detoxifying teas during their stay. They will also learn about the cleansing, nutritive and rejuvenating properties of juices and plants.
  • The Detox & Yoga Wellness Retreat: This retreat allows guests to be able to practice yoga while detoxifying at the same time. We use fresh juices, fruits and a vegetable raw diet to supplement the detoxification process while re-balancing and harmonizing the body and mind. The fresh juices regenerate and heal the body on a cellular level, strengthening and building the immune system, while the yoga compliments and combines very well with the detoxification regime. Together they work in synergistic harmony.
  • The Elixir of Life – The Ultimate Detox Program: This retreat is dedicated to cleansing and regenerating the body and mind, and is a time for both physical and spiritual renewal. Each day involves a planned program of freshly extracted fruit and vegetable juices, which are all accompanied with special cleansing drinks throughout the day. All of our juices are freshly prepared moments before consumption to insure maximum potency and quality. Individual nutritional advice, yoga and breathing exercises, meditation techniques, massage and Reiki are also part of the program.

“I promised myself Round #2 this year, and May saw twenty-five days with Anosha. Fifteen days of hardcore detox, some excellent hiking, some very grumpy and sick days, all supervised by one unrelenting Anosha, and I walk away another ten years younger. Well, maybe not quite, but certainly another 10kg lighter and whole lot healthier.

If you have thought about doing something about your health, mobility, mood, snoring, panting, blood pressure etc, THIS IS IT! If you haven’t, smell the coffee. THIS IS IT!!

At a fraction of the cost of some of Thailand’s supposed world-class retreats, this has to be the most personalized attention there is. And the results speak for themselves. Thank Anosha and Angelika.”
