Do you live a healthy life? We all know that eating the right foods and getting plenty of exercise is good for our health, but did you know that this lifestyle does more than lower your cholesterol and help you lose weight? In fact, healthy food and regular exercise can help ward off diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s by reducing inflammation.
Chronic inflammation is an autoimmune disorder that attacks normal, healthy tissue. Generally, it mistakes the tissue for a pathogen that causes disease. Chronic inflammation puts our bodies on high alert all of the time and can have lasting damage to our hearts, brains and other vital organs. So many major diseases – depression, diabetes, arthritis – have been linked to chronic inflammation.
Have you ever experienced any type of inflammation in your body? If yes, you know that it can be quite unpleasant and uncomfortable. However, there are ways to combat chronic inflammation, and some of the best remedies include fueling your body with good food and lots of exercise.
Foods that Fight Inflammation
A good way to fight inflammation is by taking a trip to the grocery store or fresh market. Many foods and beverages have anti-inflammatory properties, it is just a matter of knowing which ones to choose. If you are looking to reduce the risk of inflammation in your body, it is best to choose healthy foods. Good examples of these include leafy green vegetables, nuts such as almonds or walnuts, olive oil, tomatoes, and fruits such as oranges, strawberries, blueberries and cherries. If you do eat meat, make sure to stick to fatty fish varieties such as salmon, mackerel and tuna.
Avoid refined carbohydrates and red meat whenever possible. French fries and other friend foods as well as margarine and soft drinks should also be avoided. Try to maintain a healthy, balanced diet whenever possible to avoid weight gain, as this is also another factor that contributes to inflammation.
The Exercise Component
Exercise is good for the body, and it is recommended that we exercise at least 30 minutes five times per week. For those who suffer from chronic inflammation, exercise is known to reduce inflammatory markers. Go for a brisk walk, ride an exercise bike or join a cardio class such as HIIT. Strength-Training that works all of the muscle groups is also good, and should be practiced at least two times per week.
Exercise has been found to produce an anti-inflammatory cellular response which, in turn, highlights the benefits of physical activity. Not only does exercise reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, it also strengthens the heart, muscles and bones. Exercise leaves us feeling refreshed, which is particularly important for those suffering from chronic inflammation.

Songkran is a super fun event on the annual calendar in Thailand. Known as the Thai New Year, Songkran is deep-rooted in tradition and culture. The festival lasts for three days, but it truly is a mass celebration across Thailand. This year, Songkran takes places from the 13th to 15th of April and is sure to be a wonderful time.
Songkran has to be seen to be believed. Not only is it a traditional Thai festival, it’s also the largest water festival in the country. As April is the hottest month, the water feels cool and refreshing. Kata Beach is Santosa’s local beach and is sure to have many fun activities during the Songkran Festival such as a mass water fight, music and traditional ceremonies.
As Songkran signifies the Thai New Year and a new year often means a new start, perhaps this Thai festival can also be the perfect time to reevaluate your health or put new passion into the fitness goals you started at the beginning of 2018. Once you have had a chance to take part in the festivities, why not take the time to treat yourself?

Is it time for a fresh start? Are you ready for a whole new lifestyle that will allow you to unleash your full potential? Do you have 21 days to dedicate to a life transformation? If you answered yes to any of these questions, now is the best time to participate in a detox program.
Detox has many benefits and there are many different programs to choose from. However, each program endeavors to achieve the same goal. That goal is to rid the body of toxins.
Over the last year, Santosa has welcomed a wide variety of guests from around the world to our detox retreat. All come with the common goal of transforming their lives and forming healthy habits. Many of our guests choose to stay with us for 21 days to participate in a well-rounded detox program. Is there a significance that comes along with 21 days? Studies have shown that it takes a mere 21 days to build a fitness habit or to make a new hobby stick. In addition, 21 days provide ample time for a transformation cycle with regard to a detox program.
What will happen during a 21-day detox program?
Even though you might be completely motivated to make a change, it can be quite difficult to do so if your every day environment remains the same. Outside forces can play an important part in your transformation, so choosing to take yourself out of your comfort zone can do wonders.
If it is possible, transport yourself to a healthy, nurturing environment such as the one at Santosa. A new, healthy environment full of people ready and willing to support you can make the experience of a detox that much easier.
A huge plus of coming to Santosa Detox & Wellness Center is that you will be participating in a detox program along with other guests. You will have an automatic support system of peers who understand what you are going through, making it easier to share the emotions, challenges and little gains and wins during the 21 days that you are here.
In addition to a detox program, you will be able to join a wide variety of on-site activities including fitness classes, Zumba, yoga classes, vegan cooking classes, nature walks and much more. Many of our guests find that they enjoy these classes so much that they turn into a hobby. For example, some guests upon their return home decide to continue going to yoga a few times a week.
During the 21 days you spend at Santosa, so many wonderful, positive changes are going to occur. Your perceptions of food and healthy eating, exercise and handling of your emotions will be transformed and viewed in a completely different way from when you first arrived.
Upon completion of a 21-day detox program, you will feel fresh and revitalized. Often times, guests mention that the feel lighter, both physically and emotionally, and that life in general seems a bit more clear.
Post-detox usually brings about a complete life transformation. Many guests continue on their health and wellness journey building upon the foundations learned during their detox program.

An ancient Ayurvedic practice, oil pulling is an efficient way to remove bacteria from the mouth while promoting healthy teeth and gums. Those who practice oil pulling regularly will tell you it is even better than flossing! If you are looking for a good way to whiten your teeth naturally, oil pulling is definitely worth trying.
Oil pulling is a wonderful oral detoxification program that can be done every day. The oil that we prefer, and without a doubt that one that works best, is coconut oil. Oil pulling is easy to do – simply swish a tablespoon in your mouth for 10-20 minutes. Although the first few times might be a bit difficult, use the time you are practicing oil pulling to focus on something else. Perhaps read a book, get your bag ready for work or even choose your clothes for the day.
How does it work?
Oil pulling works in a similar way that soap cleans dirty dishes. It cleans and detoxifies the oral cavity by sucking the dirt out of your mouth. Coconut oil pulling creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment which in turn contributes to and enhances the proper flow of dental liquid. The proper flow of dentil liquid is necessary to treat oral diseases and prevent cavities.
Although recently it has gained a lot of popularity, coconut oil pulling has been around for many years and it has a number of benefits including:
Treating tooth decay
Eradicating bad breath
Healing irritated gums
Coconut oil pulling really can help transform your health. It is no secret that the mouth is home to millions of types of bacteria, fungi, viruses and other toxins. The coconut oil acts like a cleanser and pulls all of the nasty stuff out of your mouth before it has a chance to spread throughout the body. Coconut oil pulling helps to free up the immune system, reduce stress and aids in the overall well-being of the body.
Another awesome benefit of coconut oil pulling is that it keeps the skin clear. As the coconut oil pulling helps remove toxins from the body, it means that the same toxins are not able to get into the bloodstream which gives skin the chance to glow and shine. Once you start practicing oil pulling, skin issues and rashes are often reduced dramatically and acne can even clear up.
Coconut oil pulling is definitely worth trying. It’s an effective method to whiten teeth naturally and it also removes toxins from the mouth ensuring better oral hygiene moving forward. It only takes 10-20 minute per day, so why not give coconut oil pulling a try?
