Detox Retreats: Kick-Start your Body
What is a Detox Retreat?
The word ‘detox’ comes from ‘detoxification’ and, as the name suggests, it is a method of getting rid of those toxic or unhealthy substances that build up in our bodies over time. This practice is not anything new: in olden times people used to treat patients this way and they used to regularly fast. Purifying the body is a centuries-old tradition and it has been proven to provide many health benefits.
The fundamental basis of a detox retreat is the food, which consists of purifying juices. Mixes containing a base of organic ingredients (fruit, vegetables, grains, superfoods) are particularly recommended to cleanse the body and eliminate toxins; at the same time, this increases absorption of vitamins and antioxidants.
How does the detox diet work?
The detox diet helps our body eliminate what it doesn’t need. This makes the body work much more efficiently, healthy weight-loss is achieved, and sleep is improved.
The human body is made up of organs whose daily job is cleansing our bodies. Following a detox diet gives those organs (such as the kidneys, the liver, and our skin) an extra boost to help flush out those toxins we accumulate day after day.
