During & After Your Detox

detox-thailand

An exercise regimen is highly advised during detox, as it strengthens and tempers the body and mind, burns excess fat and encourages faster release of toxins. Meditate, practice yoga, walk and explore, swim, and be overall calm and peaceful to maximize the rejuvenation of your body during your detox. We also recommend the use of colonics, which further cleanse your digestive tract and enhance the rest period of the digestive system.

After Your Detox

Once you have reached your objective and completed the detox process for the number of days that is best for you and your body, it is time to introduce solid food back into your digestive tract. Listen very carefully to your body during this time, move forward slowly and don’t overdo it. The reintroduction of food into your body may also induce feelings of anxiety – this is normal and should also be accepted and embraced as a necessary part of the regenerative process. Stay positive; you are giving your body an incredible gift.

Be conscious of your body. Be open to its reactions to food to learn more about what is beneficial for you and what may not be so good for your body.

During Your Detox

As chewing is the first stage of the process of digestion, it stimulates our bodies to begin digestive processes and to excrete hormones and other chemicals that prepare the digestive tract to receive and process solid food. Because of this, it is advised to avoid food altogether during your detox in order to allow your digestive system to take a complete break. Despite the “no food” advisement, you should consume large quantities of fluids and make sure that you continue to supply your body with the vitamins and minerals that it needs to rebuild and replenish itself.

As you move through your detox, you will experience a wide range of physical and psychological effects stemming from the flushing of toxins and the release of energy blockages. The release of emotions can be negative, positive, or a mix of both, and should be accepted as it comes, since this release is one of the best things you can do for your body and mind. Focus on yourself, accept and embrace yourself in all of your states, and make sure to sleep and rest as often as you need.

Yoga Builds muscle strength

When your muscles are strong, they do more than just make you look good. When they are in good condition, they protect us from back pain and arthritis, and for the elderly, help to prevent falls. When muscles are strengthened through yoga, you also gain flexibility as well. Working out at the gym, lifting weights, may be able to build your strength, however, needed flexibility is ignored.
