THE PURPOSE OF DETOXIFICATION
Our body is like a machine that goes through multiple natural detoxification processes daily. The colon, lungs, liver, kidneys, lymphatic systems, skin and all of our key organs cleanse themselves, yet the environment we live in creates a build-up of toxins that can be released with complementary detoxing.
As the world population grows the number of pollutants in our environment and diets has dramatically increased. Our foods now contain traces of the chemical fertilisers used to grow them and the hormones that increase the yield of animal protein products.
Then, too, our diets contain many more saturated fats and trans fats than those of our parents and tend to rely on stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol as well. So, the organs that were once capable of ridding our bodies of toxins by themselves are now overburdened. This means our tissues store the toxins that the organs cannot eliminate. The body surrounds these toxins with mucous and fat to keep them from damaging the nearby tissues.
These fat and mucous-wrapped toxins can become a burden to the body, often causing considerable weight gain, compromising our immune systems and slowing organ function. A period of rest for the body that features Kamalaya’s all-natural detox cuisine and colon hydrotherapy is the perfect way to reset your body’s self-cleansing properties and revitalise yourself.
At Kamalaya Wellness Sanctuary & Holistic Spa on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand, you can choose the detox program that is perfect for you. Start with an Introduction to Detox program if you want to learn about detox in general and gently invigorate your system, or choose the Basic Detox for a structured, research-based program that brings medical science and holistic therapies together. For those who want a more thorough regime, Kamalaya’s Comprehensive Detox program awaits. At Kamalaya, you can learn to live better, feel better and make long-term changes to revitalise your life.
Kamalaya’s Basic Detox program is ideal for more practised detoxers and brings together medical science and holistic therapies to increase energy and vitality, alleviate inflammation and enhance the function of the major detoxification organs – liver, skin, colon and lymphatic system.
It’s available over 7, 9 or 14-nights where you’re supported by a Wellness Consultant, Massage Therapists and a Reiki Master.
Experienced detoxers visiting our holistic retreat in Koh Samui often select the Comprehensive Detox Program. A complete daily program of therapies developed to enhance the health of the colon, relieve the toxic burden from the body and cleanse the blood and lymphatic system includes regular colon hydrotherapy sessions. Working with a Wellness Consultant and dedicated Life Enhancement Mentor, this advanced program is experienced over 7, 9 or 14 nights.
The water of a fresh, young coconut replenishes and cools the body while basil and pineapple support digestion, making this drink a perfect accompaniment to any meal on our detox menu.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can accelerate healing significantly faster than normal methods by stimulating cell growth and tissue repair. It reduces swelling and inflammation by counteracting the lower supply of oxygen to the traumatised area.
Physical asanas (yoga postures) establish greater strength, flexibility, and balance. Additional physiological benefits include improved circulation, deepened sleep and improved posture and reduction in structural pains.
Excessive stress is the main cause. Working too much, sleeping too little, the constant demands of a fast-paced, high-stress lifestyle, and even stressful life events can compromise the adrenals.
