What is Detox

Detox (detoxification) is simply a period of time when you stop taking unhealthy or harmful foods, drinks or drugs in to your body in order to improve your health.  Detox is the body’s way of ridding itself of toxins built up within it, due to many factors.  Being exposed to stress, lack of rest/sleep, eating cooked and processed foods (the digestive system is a key holding place for many toxins), lack of exercise, breathing toxins in the air, as well as toxins placed on the body through soap, shampoo, perfumes, deodorant  and much more.  In order for the body to function properly, all of who you are needs an opportunity to rest and rejuvenate.  When placed under the right conditions, cooperating with the body and providing it what it needs for restoration, the whole of you will begin to detox from the inside out; both mind, body and spirit.

Will there be side effects to participating in a Juiced for Life program?

The answer to this is YES!  There are a few things that you will experience right away; Energy!  You will begin to feel energetic and excited about your participation in the Juiced for Life program; no matter how long the duration of your stay.  You may notice mild side effects:  head ache, nausea, fatigue, restlessness, desire to sleep, frequency in urinating.  This is normal and should pass quickly; if you experience anything at all. We have local physicians that are nearby, if need be.

Will I lose weight?

The answer to this is YES!  The Juiced for Life programs posture you for weight loss.  All of the conditions you will be exposed to are favorable for weight loss.  Exercise, swimming, massage, rest, tropical warm weather, humidity, fresh raw foods, fruit and vegetable juices and tons of water; these factors all equate to weight loss.  The “super bonus”; they equate to HEALTH!

When I think of “Raw Food”, what should I keep in mind? Uncooked?

Raw food is simply unheated food or food cooked at less than 40 °C (104 °F) to 46 °C (115 °F).  As foods heated or cooked beyond those temperatures begin to lose the integrity of the nutrients they provide and over time can even become harmful to the body.  99% of what you will experience at Juiced for Life will be foods that have not been processed in anyway; heat or otherwise. You want to keep in mind that these “raw-living” foods will come from fresh organic vegetables, fruit, soaked nuts, seeds and sprouted grains and legumes. “Oh so yummy”!

What days can I come?

You are welcome to come anytime to begin your Juiced for Life experience.  However, Sundays are our day of rest and relaxation.  A day for reflecting and a time to enjoy amazing Thailand.  For best results in our programs, it’s preferable to choose days that will keep your program running back to back with no break in between.  Our check in times are 15:00 (3pm) daily and Check out is at 12:00 noon.  Please be sure to book your flights accordingly.  Airport transfer is provided for your departure and will pick you up 2 – 3 hours before your flight, leaving from Krabi International Airport.  If arriving or departing from any other airport (Phuket, etc.) special arrangements can be made at a surcharge.  <a title=”Contact Us” href=”http://getjuicedforlife.com/contact-us/”>Please contact us
