There are many benefits of a Juice Fast. First and foremost, a Juice Fast helps to rid the body of toxins and harmful waste. A Juice Fast helps to eliminate cravings and curb your appetite, which gives the stomach a rest. It also is a great way to let the gut repair itself as you will be consuming less calories. It should be noted that even though you are consuming less calories, the Juice Fast still supplies the body with the beneficial vitamins and nutrients that it needs.

Another great benefit of a Juice Fast is that it floods our system with nutrition. As you won’t need to making decisions on what to eat during the program, you will feel satisfied and it might be easier to break some food addictions such as eating loads of carbs or sugar every day.

A Juice Fast is also a natural way to lose weight. You will notice that water bloat subsides and it is possible that you might also lose some fat. Another important fact of a juice fast is that after the first day’s acclimation, you will be able to maintain your energy levels. Many people have expressed that during a Juice Fast, they feel much more energy and loads of mental clarity due to the cutting out of caffeine and other carbonated drinks.

The energy levels are important, and since a Juice Fast allows you to maintain them, when you are staying with us at Santosa you will be able to take part in the wide variety of activities that are available throughout the day at Santosa such as yoga, HIIT, Zumba, TRX, Breathwork, Meditation and so many more.

A few other suggestions include cutting back on grains or eradicating them from your diet. Replace wheat and gluten grains with fresh vegetables and starchy carbs. Grains eventually turn into sugar, so best to eat or get rid of them.

Something that is vital to overcoming candida is keeping the spleen healthy. In order to do this, it is best to eat healthy, starchy foods such as pumpkin, lentils and sweet potatoes. Starchy carbs provide good options for a healthy diet and a bit of mild sweetness without the sugar.

In the battle to overcome candida, it is important to focus on the liver. The liver is the biggest detoxification in the body, and it goes without saying that it needs to be kept in tip top shape. To do this, eat a lot of fermented foods such as kimchi and sauerkraut as well as sticking to probiotic rich foods such as kale which is known to support digestive functions.

Detoxing with Exercise: Tips and Benefits

Detoxing with Exercise: Tips and Benefits

Santosa Detox Wellness Center Phuket Women Doing Running Excercise

It is a well-known fact that exercise is an important part of staying healthy. While it is true that people who exercise frequently have less toxins in their bodies, exercise can still often be quite difficult during any detox program. However, it is important to stick to a routine in order to make the detox process easier.

During any detox program, the body’s major organs work very hard. It is common to experience dehydration, fatigue and mild to severe headaches. Although the body may be under greater physical stress, it is important to do restorative exercise such as gentle yoga or stretching or even take a short, brisk walk on the beach.

As we know, detox is simply the body’s way of ridding itself of excess toxins and waste. It is a great way to fine tune your organs and kickstart your health. With a detox, you will feel less sluggish and more energized.

Why exercise during a detox?

Exercise helps the body’s detoxification process. The increased movement stimulates the body. It helps to flush out the lungs as well as helps food pass through the gut quicker. When this happens, sweat glands are more open which also allows for perspiration to cleanse the skin

Exercising also promotes better circulation of the blood and lymph, a clear fluid that flows through our bodies which contains white blood cells, which allows organs of the body such as the liver and lymph nodes to cleanse bodily fluids. Exercise also enhances the function of the kidneys when you drink water. Therefore, it is extremely important to drink sufficient water before, during and after your exercise routine. Water helps detox the body more efficiently because the liquid helps kidneys to filter toxins more easily. Plus, as you exercise, if you are drinking water, you will sweat more.

Digestion is also vastly improved with exercise. It’s important to keep the digestive system healthy, as a healthy digestive system decreases indigestion, constipation and gas which makes for more regular bowel movements and easier removal of toxins in this manner.

    Tips for exercising during a detox

    Are you ready to get moving? Honestly, that is all that you have to do. Make the commitment to exercise during your detox as it will help you focus and take your attention away from hunger pains or the craving for food. During a detox, you should aim to exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, however, if you feel that you can do some kind of physical activity for an hour, that is also wonderful.

    Make sure to do exercise that targets your body’s core during a detox because that is where the vital organs such as the colon, kidneys and liver are located. Exercise that stimulates the core, such as yoga or sit-ups, stimulates those organs and helps push waste through the small and large intestines more quickly.

    A quick recap of tips for exercising during a detox includes:

    • Stay hydrated by drinking sufficient amounts of water
    • Exercising at a steady pace – listen to your body and what it can and cannot do during a detox
    • Target the body’s core to help stimulate the vital organs and accelerate the detoxification process

    Detox Water Health Benefits

    Detox Water Health Benefits

    Staying hydrated is important for health, and it is recommended, on average, to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day. However, there are some who believe that adding extra ingredients to water boosts its health benefits. The result is known as Detox Water, and it is said to help the body get rid of toxins, aid in losing weight and improve energy levels.

    What is Detox Water?

    Detox Water is water that has been infused with the flavors of fresh fruits, vegetables or herbs. It is often referred to as fruit-flavored or fruit-infused water.

    Due to the fact that Detox Water is made by infusing flavor, rather than juicing or blending, it contains very few calories which makes it a popular drink for a wide variety of detox programs. Detox Water is also often recommended in many weight loss plans in place of high-sugar drinks such as soda and fruit juice.

    How to Make Detox Water?

    It is super easy to make Detox Water at home and there are a lot of ways to flavor it including fruit combinations, vegetables and herbs. Simply chop up your ingredients and add hot or cold water. Obviously, the more of an ingredient you use, the stronger the flavor will become. Here are some delicious Detox Water flavors:

    • Cucumber and mint
    • Lemon and ginger
    • Watermelon and mint
    • Orange and lemon
    • Strawberry and basil

    If you are making a cold Detox Water, be sure to remove the ingredients after seeping for 12 hours  so they don’t begin to decompose. 

    Does Detox Water Have Health Benefits?

    Detox Water has many health benefits which include weight loss, toxin removal and natural detox, helping boost immune functions, aiding digestive health, increasing energy levels and improving the skin.

    However, it is important to note that most of the above benefits come from drinking water itself. The ingredients used in making Detox Water don’t offer as many nutrients as eating them in their whole form.

    Studies have shown that drinking water helps you lose weight, and this also applies to Detox Water. Water can temporary raise the body’s metabolic rate which buns more calories. People who drink the recommended amount of water as part of a weight loss program tend to lose more weight.

    Water also improves digestive health. Keeping the system hydrated maintains regular bowel functions. Drinking plenty of water also helps food pass easily through the gut. Water can also improve mood and energy levels as hydration can help alleviate bad moods and headaches.
