BEFORE ARRIVE: PRE-DETOX
What are the do’s and don’ts before coming? What should I eat & drink?
For best results, before joining our detox program follow the Pre-Detox Program be sent after you confirm your booking for two weeks. This will both alkalise and prepare your body for a deeper cleansing. If you do not have enough time, you should start a minimum of 3 days before the detox program. For optimum results in the pre-cleansing phase, eat no meat, dairy products, salt, sugar or foods with added sugar. Stop the intake of coffee, tea, alcohol and all other drinks with caffeine. You can drink all sorts of herbal teas instead. Drink water as often as possible, but not with a meal. Water is a critical addition to the cleansing process. It is best to drink at least 6% of your body weight (I.e. 70 kg body weight, drink 4.2 liters of water). Cut off caffeine and alcohol, eat as many raw fruits and vegetables as your body can handle.
Why do I need to Pre-Cleanse?
Pre-cleansing prepares your body for the deep cleansing you will experience on the full fast. On a pre-fast, your body will move from an acidic state towards the alkalinity needed for cleansing. You’ll also increase your storage of electrolytes, giving your body the strength needed for cleansing. Fasting without properly preparing your body can result in rapid toxin elimination which, in turn, can result in some discomfort including headaches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhoea and dizziness.
I did not do a pre-detox. Can I still start my detox?
The pre-detox is significant in terms of easing the transition to a detox program. If you start your detox without doing the pre-detox beforehand, you might feel the “detox symptoms” stronger. These symptoms are also called as the “healing symptoms” which are general reactions that the body can experience in the first couple of days of the detox such as headaches, dizziness, feeling nauseous, having strange dreams etc. If you arrive to the center without doing the pre-detox, we can apply the green detox programs to help you to do your pre-detox here.
What should I bring with me?
There is nothing specific you need to bring, just comfortable clothing for yoga, meditation and exercise classes etc. Some sports shoes (trainers) for walking, sun cream, bikini and a good book for when you are chilling out on the beach. Sportswear and swimsuit would be sufficient to wear during your program. (For the daily walks, yoga classes, use of the fitness room, daily pool/sea/infrared sauna/steam room usages etc.) For the wet season it is suggested to bring a rain coat.
What time should I check-in and check-out to the hotel?
Our reception is open 24 hours a day. The time of the check-in is after 14.00 pm and check-out is before 12.00 (however we will do our best to provide flexibility depending on the availability of the rooms on that day.) We suggest you arrive the night before you start the program in order to start morning rested and refreshed. If you arrive the night before you start your detox, we do not charge any extra cost for the accommodation. The bill will be settled depending on the days of the program you do.
