While healthy eating is our birthright, for many of us it seems like taking the plunge into eating a whole foods-based diet is the equivalent to traveling to some distant land. But it doesn’t have to be such a scary or foreign experience.
When our bodies become “toxic,” it means that our natural means of ushering out metabolic waste from normal human metabolism, environmental pollution, stress, emotional experiences, and what has become known as the standard diet have exceeded the threshold for what the body’s innate detoxification system can tolerate on its own. With this toxic load, every system in the human body can become affected. From our head to our toes and everything in between, toxicity makes us sick!
How long is a detox?
Typical cleanses that harness our body’s natural processes for filtering and removing waste tend to be gentle and can therefore be tolerated for longer periods of time than more extreme protocols. A safe cleanse is one which doesn’t make you starve yourself or take fancy pills, potions or expensive drinks.
Safety means allowing the body to do what it wants to do naturally, with a little assistance from some guided healthy eating, appropriate supplements and relevant lifestyle modifications. It is usual to do a cleanse for at least 7 days, or even longer, depending on your particular needs.

Like planning for any big trip to a new destination, we need to prepare and set out some main goals for our journey. A retreat helps us to have the adequate space and tranquility that we need in this process.
Fasting represents a period of detachment. We will engage in release exercises to put aside need patterns that we generally belief. Fasting produces a distention of our physical and emotional system that sensitizes us allowing us to go deeper into our own unconscious. This can be an opportunity for development of consciousness.
The food can be a drug used to pacify emotional processes and their origins in the unconscious. Food balances energy and satisfies anxiety through the palate. When you do not eat the unconscious reveals emotions, this is an opportunity to break these circuits.
