Juice Fasting with Detox Plus
About theDetox Plus Juice Fast Programme
Detox Plus retreats are based on Juice fasting.
Juice fasting is an excellent way to give your organs nutrients for essential maintenance and repair. Juicing releases essential enzymes, vitamins and minerals from fruit and vegetables for immediate use and absorption. This requires minimum digestion but provides maximum nutrition.
Fruit juices contain a lot of sugar (fructose) so, to keep blood sugar levels more stable, we juice a combination of organic fruit and vegetables plus spirulina tablets to purify the blood and increase the alkaline levels in the body. We also add lemon and ginger for flavour and their healing properties.
We can adjust the juices depending on individual requirements.
We only use a masticating, cold press juicer so that the juice is as good a quality as possible and we only use fresh organic produce as in season and locally sourced as we can manage.
We provide a range of cleansing supplements with each juice. These are:
Psyllium - This is a fibre product which is completely inert but does an amazing job, it not only fills you up so you don't feel hungry, but it also clears out the intestine on its way through the body. I take great pleasure in informing you that we provide the psyllium in capsule form so you don't even know you're taking it!
Bentonite - This amazing clay has been used for its cleansing properties for centuries. It is negatively charged and attracts to itself the positively charged toxins and heavy metals as they are released into the bowel. Together they form clusters that are too big to be re-absorbed and are therefore literally washed with the colonics. It is tasteless and very easy to take with your juice.
Digestive Enzymes - Taken with each juice these enzymes loosen and 'digest' any conjested matter on the intestinal wall. They are an important part of the bowel cleansing programme. These also come in capsule form.
Intestinal Formula - These wonderful capsules actually tone and condition the bowel and stimulate the peristalsis in the intestine to increase overall bowel health, transit and cleansing.
Spirulina - This miraculous supplement is packed full good things. It is high in protein and provides most of our essential amino acids as well as lots of beneficial B vitamins, a range of other vitamins and many essential minerals. It also reduces inflammation in the body and can act as an appetite suppressant. This super green food also increases the alkalinity of the body which helps protect against disease.
We can, if needed, provide specific supplements for individual conditions including candida and hormonal imbalance. Fiona is a fully qualified herbalist and is always on hand with advice and support. There will also be a constant supply of delicious detox tea on tap that Fiona makes up specially for the detox weeks as well as a range of healing Pukka teas in each of your cottages.
At the end of the week we give you a three week supply of very high quality pro-biotics to re-populate your bowel which provides all the beneficial bacteria you need to protect you and support you after you leave us.
What some of our wonderful clients had to say about their week with us ......
One of our clients in a recent retreat was free of asthma for the first time in 37 years!
A recent wonderful testimonial for Detox Plus
Not sure if you remember me, I was at the retreat in Wales last March and had a life changing time to say the least!
Since returning from the break, I was pregnant within a month and now have a beautiful 5 month old daughter, Charlotte Rose. I didn't mention that we were trying for a baby during my time with you as part of the reason I came to you was to take some time out from 'trying for a baby'. I decided if it was meant to be, it would be.
I really believe, the healthier, cleaner me, made the pregnancy happen and I had a really healthy pregnancy and a perfect baby at the end of it! So a big thank you to you all!
Amazing what fasting can do. Check out tonight's Horizon for scientific proof that it really does change your life for the better.'
The other testimonials were equally glowing!
"The team were professional, friendly and very, very helpful - I always felt looked after and loved. You couldn't do enough for me and have created an atmosphere of harmony and positivity and shown me how to take it home with me"
"The Journey was the best thing I've ever done - thanks to you all - I think you have literally saved me from a downhill slide into misery, early old age and a life of sitting in a chair doing nothing."
"Every part of the retreat has given me a separate benefit. I couldn't pick one aspect that was more beneficial than another - and I lost 7lbs without even thinking about it!"
"The Nutritional Talks were extremely informative and made really interesting. I was intent on Fiona's every word."
"Annie's insight into my personality, character and what makes me tick (or stop ticking!) was eerily close for someone who had never met me before. The session has given me clarity after a year of struggling with personal and work issues."
"The session with Anna lifted me to a place of feeling secure and loved, somewhere I'd not been before in my adult life. I believe it has changed all my relationships for the better."
"This was a life changing experience. I arrived jaded and tired. I feel I've been given the tools to make the changes I thought were insurmountable. I'm leaving a much stronger person with a sense of self worth that I have never had before - I love you all x"
"The team are top of their game. Whilst being totally professional, the warmth, sincere care and kindness were incredible. Human beings don't come much better than you guys."
"Anna is one amazing person - she has enabled me to deal with my demons and move on with my life. I never in a million years expected the outcome I actually got. She has lifted a dead weight off my heart - thank you so much Anna x."
"The physical therapies were excellent - Andrew is GREAT!"
"The team were welcoming, friendly, very encouraging and understanding - love to them all. The most valuable aspect for me was being among people who care and enable you to break free of old emotions and habits - thank you from the bottom of my heart"
