What are they?
Detox holidays are very popular because of the many health benefits such as boosting our immune system and generally making our body run smoother. When arriving on one of our detox holidays guests receive a specialised detox consultation before starting their programme to establish clear goals and where necessary, customise the programme for the individual. After completion of the programme you will have a greater awareness of your body and the nutritional advice to keep it in good condition.
What is detoxification?
Detoxification is a popular health technique that enhances our body's ability to neutralise and safely eliminate harmful toxins, as they can be the common route to a lot of illnesses. You can detox yourself through good nutrition, carefully chosen treatments and holistic activities such as yoga to achieve mental clarity, body detoxification and stress reduction.
What are the benefits of a detox?
A detox programme has many health benefits to help you feel good on the inside and help you look the best on the outside. It helps all of your organs to function better and your entire level of health is improved. A detox is great for the body inside because your metabolism, immune system, brain and digestive system will all function more efficiently. Not only does it help the inside of your body but it is also gives you clear skin and any inflammation you may have will be reduced.
Preparing for a detox
In order to prepare for a detox, we suggest reducing or eliminating your intake of the following foods a fortnight before you start as this will make it easier for your body to adjust to the change of diet:
- Refined carbohydrates (white breads, pasta, white rice)
- Sugar and artificial sweeteners

We also recommend increasing your consumption of the following:
- Fresh fruits
