People choose to detox for a variety of reasons, however, most of them are related to both looking and feel better. There are many health benefits associated with detoxifying the body, with the primary benefit being to treat or prevent chronic illnesses and diseases.

Most chronic illnesses, diseases and sicknesses can be traced back to poor bowel health. Poor bowel health translates to a body filled with too many toxins. A detox program can help rid the body of as many toxins as possible to restore the body to optimal health.

Someone who knows a great deal about how detox programs help to prevent potential diseases is Liana Rader. A familiar face around Santosa Detox & Wellness Center, Liana is the Holistic Wellness Director & Therapist at our center. Passionate about her profession and extremely knowledgeable, we recently asked Liana some questions with regard to detox, disease prevention and her path as a holistic therapist.

What is the best way for a potential client to choose a detox program?

Firstly, the client needs to understand at what point they are on in their health journey. For example, what lifestyle are they leading, what are their eating habits? Are they suffering from an ailment or a disorder? What is their history? Is it their first detox experience or have they undergone other treatments? Prior to advising any of Santosa’s detox programs, it is important that potential clients fill in our Health Questionnaire so that we can establish their background information, decide which detox program is best for them and assist them through their health and wellness journey to ensure the best results possible.

An important factor that reigns true is that over the years of assisting clients at Santosa, I have always witnessed excellent results no matter which program a guest chooses. Guests receive the best benefits, and often come back to repeat the experience six month down the road or a year later, especially if they are ready to go deeper into their detox and self-care.

How does a detox help prevent potential diseases?

Human anatomy has been organized in an extraordinary way to live a healthy life, but due to our stressful, often out of balance “modern world lifestyle” and its environment, our bodies and minds are exposed to an overload of toxins on a daily basis. Under this pressure, our body functions are at great risk as they are often depleted and can easily give in to ailments and diseases. A detox is like pushing the body’s reset button. It gives our bodies and our minds a break and slows down the digestive system. During a detox, our bodies go into repair mode and we are able to focus on self-care and heal.

Why would you suggest a detox?

To be honest, we all want to live a happy and good life. I believe a regular detox retreat is essential to help all of us accomplish that goal. It truly is one of the best gifts that we can give ourselves.

Personally, we may know what is good or bad for us, but it can often be difficult to stay on track once we get caught up in our daily routines. The benefits of a detox are endless! A detox program helps us get back on track simply by slowing us down, allowing us to make time for ourselves, cleansing and detoxing our bodies with colemas and saunas, being pampered by daily massages as well as integrating a wide variety of sport activities to move, strengthen and stretch the body. In addition, fueling our bodies with healthy fresh juices and vegan food, meditation, breath work and a wide range of alternative practitioners and therapists to choose from for further education.
