Balance Body, Mind & Soul – Lose Weight & Toxins, gain Health!

Designed to help you gain positive health quickly – The Karuna Detox Program helps:

  • Lose Weight (up to 12+ lbs)
  • Balance Gut Microbiome
  • Reduce Toxicity
  • Reduce Acidity
  • Reduce Tensions & Improve Mood
  • Learn to Practice Mindfulness & Yoga

We offer individual support for each person as well as daily group activities (see Daily Events Table) to engage you during your physical detox and support you through your fast.

Primarily a juice fast detox program– we provide additional raw foods for anyone who require it for health/other reasons (arranged at the time of booking).

Juice Fasting with Detox Supplements

The Juice Bar offers freshly juiced organic vegetables and fruits (locally sourced), juiced by our Retreat Chef. These juices provide micro nutrients for energy and help clear intestinal mucous while you are fasting. In addition, a warm  vegetable broth is served every evening, providing additional micro nutrients to support your detox.  Some experienced detoxers may prefer a pure water fast.

Supplements deepen your detox, tone and move the intestines and alkalise your body.

Detox Diet – alkalising foods provided for anyone not suited to juice fast for health/other reasons (please request in advance). We will discuss and adapt a detox diet to suite your detox.

Juice fasting allows your body to cleanse itself without the need to spend energy on digestion. Far from a modern fad, human bodies are designed to fast (as food supply is seasonal in the natural world, no supermarkets!). Fasting enables the body to reduce toxicity levels, to minimise fat cells, to enhance immunity & digestion and reduce weight. Read more ‘Why Detox’ here.

Colonic Irrigation (optional)

Colonic Irrigations  are a safe and simple way to cleanse the Colon (large intestine) with water (like an ‘internal shower’) helping to release intestinal toxic matter, pathogens & constipation, as well as helping train and tone the bowel.

Health Starts in with a Healthy Gut, as the presence of healthy bacteria in this area provides up to 65% of your first line immunity. On retreat, following your series of Colonic irrigation (which help remove the negative bacteria) you will receive healthy probiotic to inhabit your gut with life giving probium.

Read Why & more about Colonics here.

No prior experience needed. You’ll be instructed on how to use the colonic unit.

Those with contra-indications to colonics or chose not to do colonics, can use colon cleansing herbs instead.

Personal Support & Sharing

Our morning program includes a sharing time to provide a safe space to share experience and thoughts. This promotes emotional support between course members and creates a special bond. As with anything on the retreat, it is not obligatory. Also, a facilitator is always on-hand to provide individual support if required.

We offer a free complimentary Journey Session with Louise, to help detox emotional blocks (stuck patterns that you’re ready to let go of) as well as morning meditation sessions where we deepen our connection to self, develop love and kindness, essential self care, and practice listening and dialoging from this place.

Yoga

Yoga supports your mind-body relaxation, strength, stretch and release of tension, rebalancing of nervous system and is taught as a form of self-care and kindness. This theme of ‘coming home’ to self and to being in kind caring relationship to self is a theme throughout the Karuna Detox Program, as Karuna means ‘compassion’ in Sanskrit and is central to the path of wellbeing and of moving from a head/mind centred living to a more balanced approach that takes our emotional and physical wellbeing into account.

Deeply relaxing and supportive of your detox, suitable to both practiced yogis and newcomers.
