Never before in human history have we been exposed to such high levels of toxins. There are estimated to be around 130,000 chemicals in commercial use and only around 1% have passed through safety testing. We come in contact with toxic substances every day, whether it be through the air we breathe, the water we drink or preservatives in the food we eat to make them look, smell or taste more appealing. Our personal hygiene products, make-up and anything else that we put on our skin has an easy, almost unimpeded entry into our circulation. All of these and many more add to out body’s toxic load, and ideally would be eliminated by our body’s detoxification channels on a daily basis. The problem is that our body was never intentioned to be in such close and constant contact with all of their health disrupting chemicals.

Most health professionals recognize that it simply isn’t possible to eliminate all of the toxins from the body (DETOXIFICATION), so the question is no longer IF we are toxic. The real question is HOW toxic are we?

To support the detoxification process, the body requires a variety of nutrients. If these nutrients are in low supply either through inadequate diet or the foods we eat simply not providing for our body’s needs, then the toxins re-circulate. These fat-soluble toxins can be stored in body tissue such as fat, brain, nervous system and liver, causing symptoms and future disease processes.

When the body fails to properly clear out toxins,

symptoms and impaired detoxification occur. Some examples are:

  • Digestive problems such as constipation, gas and /or bloating

  • Skin rashes

  • Aches and pains

  • Low libido

  • Fatigue

  • Headache and or migraines

  • Weight gain

  • Cognitive problems, brain fog, memory problems

  • Excess mucus

  • Poor body odor or bad breath

  • Inflammation

When impaired detoxification and resultant symptoms

continue for long enough disease may evolve. Some examples are:

  • Chronic Fatigue

  • Allergies and Asthma

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Leaky Gut/malabsorption/GI Inflammation

  • Obesity or poor weight management

  • Hormonal issues

  • Chemical sensitivities

  • Fertility problems

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

  • Other degenerative diseases

RESTING & RESETING your gut is a very important facet of our detox retreat. Reducing the workload that your digestive system has to perform when you eat 3-5 meals a day, gives your body the chance to eliminate accumulated toxins, strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation and RESET your body’s physiological process. Your unique situation will be discussed before the retreat and specific dietary recommendations will be made for you to follow before, during and after the retreat.

By following our Feel Younger Longer protocols you can expect to feel more vitality, and have a body that is better equipped to fight inflammation. It is imperative that you remember that in the same way that it took years or even decades to arrive at your current state of health or possible dysfunction, so too will it take time to return to a sate of correct function.
