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:
BENEFITS THAT MAY BE EXPECTED:
“The doctors of the future will give no medicine, but will interest their patients in the care of the human body, in diet and in the prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison (1847-1931)
“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.”
