Detox

15 Sep 2011   Shanti Gowans
If you feel overloaded with unexplainable fatigue, headaches, or other symptoms, your body may be begging you to detox.
 
Think about it. If you are living in today’s modern world, you are exposed to pollution and countless toxins on a daily basis. While the body’s natural filters work to expel these invaders, the body can become clogged with toxins as a result of environmental factors as well as lifestyle habits that negatively impact upon our health (such as a poor diet, limited physical activity, etc). 
 
Harmful toxins are in the air we breathe, our household items, cosmetics and other products we use, and even some of the foods we eat.
 
When this build-up of toxins occurs, the functioning of our body is compromised, especially the functioning of our liver, a critical element for the body’s ability to fight disease and perform optimally. When the liver can’t function properly, a decline in overall health soon follows, from a sluggish metabolism to low energy levels.
 
However, there are some natural ways that can assist you to rid yourself of these toxic substances and help you get your body back on track. Of course, most of it will start with what you put into your body. Certain foods act as natural detoxifiers. They help your body discard built-up toxins. 
 
You can get the ball rolling. Flush out toxins safely, gently and effectively and start feeling better with a ten-day detox program. Natural, ayurvedic, herbal remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to assist the body’s natural detoxification, thereby cleansing the organs. There are now various published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the cleansing process. Detox compliments a healthy lifestyle, helping you to reach your goals, from quitting smoking to losing weight and strengthening your immune system. Helpful hints to help get started on a healthy program
of healthy habits combined can make all the difference to achieving complete wellbeing.
 
To start fresh and new, we begin by flushing out toxins naturally from your gallbladder and liver, followed by the bowel and kidneys, and then the heart and lungs, brain and skin, thus supporting your body’s ability to perform its functions properly, including maintaining a strong metabolism and healthy energy levels. 
 
Overall health, from supporting the body’s natural detoxification process to promoting a strong metabolism, healthy energy levels and more, is greatly benefitted by following a balanced lifestyle, including eating a healthy diet, exercising and practising yoga regularly and getting adequate rest with daily meditation and nidra (deep relaxation and self healing). 
 
For starters, at retreat, you will drink plenty of Nirvana natural spring water to help flush out and hydrate your system, as well as promote a water balance in your body.
You will eating fruit and vegetables and the daily recommendation of fibre will also aid in your detoxification and help you naturally rejuvenate and regulate your system.
You will enjoy yoga nidra every afternoon to make sure that you get enough sleep – this means both an adequate quality and length of sleep. Sleep is one of the most important factors for maintaining a strong body and energetic lifestyle.  
A healthy mind leads to a healthy body. Prolonged stress, anxiety and depression can also compromise the body’s health. It is important to release and reduce stress and address any underlying mental health issues. You will also experience daily morning meditation
 
Natural detoxification is kind to the system and easy, through the use of diet and natural substances to help the body remain regular and assist in the body’s ability to rid itself of waste products. The routine flushing out of the stomach and digestive system supports toxin elimination by the liver. 
 
As deep seated toxins are dislodged from deeply embedded places, gentle and moderate physical exercise will help to relax you and will also encourage healthy sleep, not to mention, an increased improvement to both your blood and lymph circulation, resulting in higher energy levels and better overall  health.
 
Cleanse and rejuvenate naturally, without side effects. Attend Spring detox, the healthy, natural way to support elimination function, maintain the health of your liver and experience total wellbeing, by cleansing and refreshing all your body systems
