Detox and Fasting

The highly refined foods that you eat every day, including sugar and white flour, might taste good and be convenient, but they do have their consequences. Over time, toxins in processed foods build up in your organs and collect in your colon as debris and mucoid plaque, leading to a range of health problems like constipation, acne, candida, headaches, constant sluggishness and fatigue. But there is a natural solution...



Why Fast?

In order to stay healthy, a properly functioning digestive tract is vital. That’s where fasting comes in. It’s one of the most powerful therapies available to detoxify, cleanse and refresh your body and gently enhance your body’s own natural internal cleansing process.

Colon Cleansing

Combine colon cleansing with fasting and you have a transformative method to improve your health and well-being. Why? Because when the colon is healthy, the other organs that rely on it — like the liver and kidney for starters — are better able to function the way they’re meant to. And that can be potentially life changing.

Benefits Of Cleansing

Cleansing can help the body fight or prevent many chronic illnesses because it impacts almost all of the body’s organ systems, including the cardiovascular, nervous, immune, respiratory, reproductive, gastrointestinal, urinary, musculoskeletal and endocrine systems, and the skin. What can you expect from a colon cleanse? While everyone is different, these are the most common improvements that most people experience:

  • Improved energy levels
  • Increased metabolism
  • Restored digestive system
  • Enhanced weight loss
  • Cleansed liver, kidney and colon
  • Balanced hormones
  • Boosted immunity
  • Relaxed body & mind

When Not To Fast

While fasting and cleansing are safe and effective methods to regain your health, there are some times in your life when they aren’t recommended. Here are some of them:

  • When you’re pregnant
  • When you’re nursing
  • When you have an ulcer
  • When you’re significantly underweight
  • When you’ve recently had surgery
  • When you’re going to have surgery soon
  • When you’re under extreme emotional pressure or you have depression

If you have any doubts or questions about whether you’re in the right condition to detox, consult your doctor.

What To Expect When You Do A Cleansing Program at The Spa Resorts

Staying at The Spa Resorts makes cleansing easy. Programs start with an evening introduction to fasting that includes a lesson on how to self-administer colemas (a gentle system to flush out the colon). Starting the next morning, all of the detox drinks and supplements you need will be waiting for you right on schedule at one of our detox bars. Each day, you’ll also have the opportunity to take meditation, yoga and other wellness classes, as well as have a massage or an herbal steam bath. You’ll also be able to seek expert advice from our fasting advisor and connect with other detoxers, some of whom return to the resort year after year. By the time you finish your fast, you should be feeling refreshed and revitalized.





 

Packages

Our detox and cleansing packages are the heart of what we offer at The Spa Resorts. From our four-day juice fast to our famous seven-day cleanse, our detox programs are based on the science and practice of fasting developed by internationally respected fasting authorities Dr. Richard Anderson and Dr. Bernard Jensen. Whether you’re looking to recharge your system, lose weight or jumpstart healthy eating habits, we have a program to help.
