In recent years, the words “detox” and “cleansing” have become household words. Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemicalized diet with too much animal protein, too much saturated and trans fats, too much caffeine and alcohol radically alters our internal ecosystem. Body systems and organs that were once capable of naturally cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by isolating and surrounding them with mucous and fat so that they will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbors this waste).
Detoxification through juice cleansing at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. Any active person can juice cleanse because one is so full of nutritious juices that they do not feel hungry or lethargic. However, the most important thing to keep in mind is that one wants to commit to going organic when taking in large amounts of vegetable and fruit juices daily. It is preferable that the produce organic or the benefits will be counteracted by the high amounts of toxicity from pesticides and herbicides found in conventional produce. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and chronic fatigue. Even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites. The most important aspect of a juice cleanse is to get your system into an alkaline state. Our modern diet keeps our systems in a poor functioning acidic state. One of the best ways to get your system alkaline is to juice. Juicing becomes your main form of sustenance. At KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat throughout the day you can choose form a range of various fresh juices which contain various kinds of fruit, vegetable and superfoods such as wheatgrass, spirulina, chlorophyll, maca, acai, and coconut water. These superfood juices will power up your system and replace that morning coffee you may be used to. Juicing is a lifestyle practice we instil in our guests while at KalyaaNa Spa & Wellness Retreat.
