The hectic pace of life today, coupled with irregular eating&sleeping habits, toughworking conditions, competitive atmosphere at work, and lack of time for oneself all lead to stress. Continuous exposure to stress predisposes a person to a number of health problems. From common cold to cancer almost all diseases commonly seen today are either caused by stress or are aggravated by it.
We are also exposed to a number of toxic substances through food, water and air. These toxins accumulate in he body and overtime causedamage to the body and mind. Sleep, one of the most important pillars of health is also often disturbed or inadequate, leading to loss of energy and vitality, reduction in immunity and faulty repair of the body and mind.
The process of aging is accelerated by the action of these factors and the different parts of the body start getting into wear and tear earlier than they normally would. Postural issues related to work and lack of exercises further aggravate the situation leading to aches and pains in different parts of the body.The health gradient gradually is on a downward slide without one getting any inkling of it!

WHY DETOX ?
DID YOU KNOW? “The average person has 3-6 kilos of impacted fecal matter sitting in their colon making them look and feel bloated and rundown.”
Our environment has become so polluted with toxins through the air we breathe, the water we drink, much of the food we eat, that our natural self-cleansing process is no longer sufficient to fully eliminate them from our body.
Think of the colon as the sewage system of the body. If toxins in the colon are allowed to build up they will enter into the bloodstream and eventually overload the organs of the body, affecting our immune system and may lead to diseases and accelerated ageing.
Almost 89% of the population suffers from weight and health problems on a daily basis as toxins create chemical Imbalance in our body and affect our metabolic rate and hormones causing chronic weight problems, digestive issues and even psychological conditions. We hear of so many people complaining that despite eating right and exercising they can’t loose weight, the very reason might be due to toxic overload in the body. Even newborn babies do not escape from toxicity. US researchers found in tests of the umbilical cords in 10 newborns. In 2004 an average of 200 toxic chemicals such as pesticides, food additives,varnish and paint byproducts.
It is important to help our bodies get rid of unwanted, harmful substances through periodic detoxification.
Some signs that your body’s toxic levels might be high and detoxification is needed include:
Weight problems: Chemical imbalance caused by high toxic levels lead to a poor metabolic rate.
Bad breath and Body odor: These are signs of bacteria, yeast and fungus overgrowth.
Constipation, Poor digestion, Upset stomach or Bloating: These are signs of a compromised gastrointestinal tract.
Protruding Abdomen: Impacted fecalmatter can clog up and putrefy inside your colon causing your belly to be distended.
Allergies: High toxin levels compromise the immunesystemmaking one more prone to allergies.
Skin blemishes, Poor skin: Toxic oils can clog pores and block cell respiration making your skin look old and wrinkled.
Dark circles under eyes: This is usually a sign of high toxin levels in the blood.
Lack of energy, Fatigue and Depression: Chemical imbalance caused by high toxic levels slow down themetabolic rate, affects our hormones causing tiredness and even depression.
A detox program can be undertaken at anytime. Some signs that detoxification is needed include:
Skin blemishes, dark circles under eyes
Please kindly note that i wellness does not accept people who suffer from any chronic diseases/conditions or who are pregnant for it’s detox programs. Please let us know if you fall into either category so that we can recommend you alternatives.

Improved blood circulation
Before embarking on our Detox Programswe encourage you to prepare yourself with a preprogram cleanse. The more time you devote to this the better. Ideally a month would be perfect, but fewof us live in a perfectworld. Thus if you only have aweek aweek that will be good enough! This pre-cleansing involves eating mostly raw foods (salads & fruits), lots of vegetables, drinking plenty ofwater and drinking a Liver Flush Drink twice a day.
If time permits you can come earlier and do a Pre-cleanse program with us before your detox.
The Liver Flush Recipe: (to be taken in the morning&evening) Mix the following in a blender
2 tablespoons( 1/3 cup) Extra virgin olive oil, 1 -2/3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 3-5 cloves garlic, 1 knob ginger, ½gm Cayenne Peppe, Orange Juice
AVOID heavy proteins such as red meat, processed foods such as white breads & grains, cakes&sugar aswell as coffee, alcohol&soft drinks.
DO take plenty of vegetable & fruit juices. We suggest you eat and drink alkaline forming foods such as: all fresh fruits, raw vegetables & juices, salad greens, sprouts,dates, dried apricots, dried figs, grapefruit, melons, raisins and lentils.
Ideally your saliva or urine should turn litmus paper blue on the first day of your “Detox Program.” This would indicate alkalinity rather than all too common acidity.
Planning for your Detox:
To reap the most benefits of a detox, please plan for a few days before your program date & also a few days after to end the program correctly when you are booking for your treatment. 10 or more days would be the appropriate length of time.
