How Can a Detox Retreat Change Your Life

Giving our bodies natural cleansing process a helping hand, detoxification works to clear our system of toxins, whilst replenishing with a diet rich in essential nutrients and vitamins. Giving our body a much needed break from the over processed, fatty and sugar rich foods of modern life, a cleansing detox can present a series of life changing benefits. From kick-starting weight loss, to increasing energy levels and boosting our immune system, a detox retreat will help you on your journey with personalised healthy nutrition, detoxifying spa treatments and cleansing wellness activities.

Healthier Eating Habits

Change what you put in to your body, and you will change what you get out of it. During detox you are encouraged to decrease your intake of ‘bad foods’ such as alcohol, coffee, sugar, meat and dairy, and replace these with nutrient-rich ‘good foods’, including fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, green tea, and water to ensure optimum nutrition.

Weight loss

In combination with a healthier diet, detoxification can also help to stimulate weight loss. As a result of unhealthy lifestyles and diets, our bodies become overloaded with an excess of toxins and unwanted impurities, which they then begin to harbour. In an attempt to protect us, our bodies surround this unwanted material with fat, so as not to cause an imbalance. Through an appropriate nutrient-rich diet; detoxing cleanses the body of these unwanted toxins, eliminating the body’s need to build stores of fat. Helping to repair a healthier digestive system, other benefits include a boost to metabolism and reduced bloating.

Stronger Immune System

Through revitalising your system and restoring internal balance, detoxing provides a boost to the immune system, increasing your ability to fight off illness and infection. When detoxing the body, cleansing and clearing your internal organs of unwanted impurities frees your organs to perform in the way that they should naturally. No longer preoccupied with warding off toxins, your organs are then better equipped to absorb the key nutrients you feed it (such as Vitamin C) which in turn helps to improve the immune system.

Clearer Skin & Healthier Hair

When cleansing your body and internal organs of harmful toxins, it is no surprise that this purification will begin to reflect on your outside. By the time the majority of these impurities are flushed from your system you will see a number of noticeable differences, including clearer skin and healthier hair. When your hair is able to grow uninhibited by these internal toxins it will soon begin to appear shinier, grow stronger and feel softer, as your skin simultaneously clears and glows.

Increased Energy Levels & Mental Clarity

With participants frequently feeling revitalised and more energetic, a detox retreat could be just what you need to regain control of your mental energy. Increasing demands at work, high-pressure roles and long office hours see many people instinctively reach for caffeine-rich drinks like coffee, or sugary treats for that quick-fix energy boost. However, a healthy change in diet can provide a longer lasting natural energy boost, without the resultant crash.

Stress Reduction & Improved Sense of Well-being

With emotions and stress both capable of affecting your liver, it is equally important to cleanse your mind, as well as your body. Letting go of stress is a great way to support the process and is often aided by combining your detox with a variety of relaxing classes, such as yoga and meditation. Although intense physical workouts are discouraged, 20-30 mins of low intensity cardio is recommended to get the blood circulating through the organs and encourage the purging of harmful toxins.
