Fasting retreats, detox retreats, and weight loss retreats all offer similar benefits to the participant, and as well as the physical benefits of cleansing the body of toxins, aiding in weight loss, and removing processed and genetically modified foods from the diet, they provide structure and support, additional classes, and programs that are tailored to the individual rather than a one-size-fits-all solution. They also teach you the benefits of detoxifying, and seeing the benefits that you could enjoy can help you to make the necessary changes to your everyday life.
Most of us know that we need to eat healthily, exercise regularly, and avoid toxins and harmful chemicals. However, the reality of modern life is that of a long working day, smog filled streets, and a need for convenience. Processed foods, takeaway foods, and unhealthy snacks are convenient; especially if you’ve put in a 10 hour working day, completed an hour long commute, and have to think of something to feed the whole family. Convenience overtakes healthiness for many people, despite any good intentions to the contrary.
One of the first aspects of a detox retreat is that of a personal assessment. Everybody’s body is different, and we all lead different lives. While one person’s body may be regularly subjected to high industrial emissions, another person may live primarily on junk food. One person’s metabolic rate may be very different to another’s, so despite leading relatively similar lives, these two people might have very different requirements.
Even before you attend a fasting or detox retreat, you may be assessed by the retreat centre. This will typically mean completing a survey about your lifestyle and completing a health questionnaire. The information you provide will be used to build a detox or dietary program, and you may also find that you are sent preparatory supplements to take before you attend the fasting retreat. These supplements will prepare the body, help loosen the toxins, and may be similar to the supplements that you take while you are on your detox break.
Detox juices and supplements are only a part of what the detox retreat can offer. A detox or fasting diet helps shift toxins, but some remnants can be more stubborn than others. Colonic irrigation is a method that can be used to help retreat some of the left over toxins from the body. Yoga, meditation, and exercise classes can also help to improve physical and mental condition, while further enabling the participant to concentrate their efforts on cleansing the body.
Toxins can enter our bodies from the food we eat, the drinks we consume, the habits we partake in, and even the air we breathe. While it might feel that we are fighting a losing battle, fasting and detox retreats can help to redress the balance. They can provide us with the knowledge and information that we need to formulate a structured program, and they offer a host of other features and benefits that can further improve our physical and mental health.
