This is designed to boost your vitality, your energy & your general well being,especially when you need inspiration or dont have much free time or if you are concerned about whether you could do a whole 7 day juice fast (& once you have done a 4 day detox, you will realise how easy it will be to do a deeper 7 day cleanse too).

Herbs and Supplements

Psyllium Husk: Psyllium is an effective type of fibre that swells when mixed with liquid into a mass of soft jelly-like substance. It acts like a broom, sweeping clean any loosened substances from the walls of the digestive tract & collecting/removing toxins that have been released into the bowel. It also gives bulk and aids in expelling faeces.

Herbal Detox Supplements: These contain herbs that work very effectively at dissolving and breaking up the mucoid matter that lines the walls of the digestive tract, and then helping to expel it. They reduce gas in the stomach and intestines, purify the blood and stimulate and strengthen the liver and eliminative organs. They also strengthen, heal and re-build the peristaltic action of the colon and digestive system.

Nutritional Supplements: to support your liver and other organs during the detox process.

Treatments

During the week there are 6 treatments you will receive included in the price. These treatments are:

Skin brushing, hydrotherapy and zapping for parasites are also suggested to support the detoxification process.

Other treatments available at an extra cost include:

These treatments are booked and paid for once you are at the retreat.

Colon Cleanse

As your cells start to release toxins, some from deep within the tissues, they will be transported via the lymphatic system to an organ of elimination. It is very important that your body is able to remove the toxins effectively at this stage, otherwise you will simply re-absorb them back into your blood, which after all of your hard work you really don’t want.

This is why the colon cleanse is such an important part of the programme, and by doing a cleanse on a daily basis, it helps to eliminate the possibility of a healing crisis that can occur when detoxing. Cleansing the colon also helps to remove the mucoid plaque that lines the walls of the digestive tract. When mucoid plaque is removed, the body is then able to absorb all of the good nutrients found in food, thus increasing your health and vitality.

As well as the colonic hydrotherapy session you will be receiving, we also use either the Clysmatic (a type of self-service colonic) or an enema. These treatments are done in the privacy of your own bathroom on a daily basis.

Arrivals and Departures

The 7 day retreat normally starts with your arrival at 4pm, in time for the afternoon juice, and finishes on the final morning, after you have been re-introduced back to food at break-fast time.

The nearest station is Chichester. If you let us know your arrival time we will come and pick you up if we are available. If not, there are taxis at the station.

Juices

Your Juice Fast Day by Day

General day by day juice fast timetable
7am Wake up bell (dont worry it is a gentle sounding Tibetan bowl)
7-7.30am Waking up time. Skin brushing and warm lemon water drinking.

9.15am First Delicious Juice of the day

The adjacent table gives a general guideline, as to what the days look like. The 7 day retreats are busier though, as they also have to include time for doing enemas, colonics, etc. Below is an outline of what to expect on both the 4 day and 7 day detox retreats, followed by what is specifically on offer for each retreat.

Your day begins at 7am with a gentle wake-up call, followed by a warm lemon water drink and a chance to do your morning skin brush. At 7.30 you will learn and practice yogic breathing exercises, which will help your body to detoxify and will also calm and balance your mind. This is followed by a short session of meditation and then by a yoga or chi gung session.

Juices

After your morning exercise you will have your first fruit or vegetable juice of the day. These are freshly made before each juice session, using large quantities of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. Juicing requires vast quantities of fruits and vegetables. Whilst you are with us you will probably consume a much higher quantity of nutrients than you would do in every day life, and it is these nutrients that help to push the toxins from the cells.

You will get a fresh juice about every 3 hours throughout the day, and in the evening you will be given a hot, clear vegetable broth. This broth is warming, nurturing tasty and enjoyable as a social event, and it is also an important part of the cleansing process, as the high potassium content it contains is needed to flush toxins from the cells.

Leisure Time

During the day there will be plenty of time for relaxation. Detoxing affects everyone differently, and if you have never experienced detox before, you might find that you feel very tired and just want to be in your own space, resting or sleeping and there will be plenty of opportunity to do this. You will probably also feel very energised and alive at times, so you can experience and express your aliveness by walking along the beach or in the gorgeous English countryside. It’s a wonderful chance to connect with and be in nature. The retreats can also be great for making new friends at and can be quite a lot of fun, if you are feeling sociable.

You will of course, be able to enjoy many different treatments (some of which are included in the price), which all play a supportive role in the detoxification process. (See the Treatment List)

The evenings are usually quite flexible, as everyone’s desires are different. There is a meditation session before the broth & then afterwards people often watch informative DVDs which we include to inspire and motivate you towards a toxic free mind and body.
