A healthier you: detox in koh samui

Much have been said about the many benefits of detoxification and how it can help an average busy individual cope up with the stress of the daily grind. One’s typical day consists of hours spent at the office under a great deal of stress, a portion spent on gadgets, and meals that lack nutritional value.

It is not very surprising that there are a lot of people who suffer from all kinds of ailments and are chronically depressed. Aside from being a recreational hotspot, Thailand is known for its many health resorts. Thailand is a pioneer in detox. In Koh Samui, Thailand, there are plenty of luxury wellness spas that offer detox programs. Because of the peaceful atmosphere in Samui, it is an idyllic place to have a break and focus on things that are beneficial to the body.

Among the best health resorts Thailand has to offer are in Koh Samui. A typical Thailand detox resort offers a comprehensive wellness program that consists of cleaning rituals, special diets, and mind clearing activities to free one from worries, stress, and pains. Going on a detox in Koh Samui might be one of the best things you’ll ever do for yourself. Wondering how getting inside a Koh Samui detox retreat can help you? Check out these amazing benefits.

Weight loss

Struggling with excess pounds and you find it very difficult to stick to a diet regimen? That’s a good reason to visit a detox Koh Samui retreat. Individuals who are interested to shed a few pounds and start living a healthier lifestyle can visit a Thailand detox resort. Detox wellness centers specialize in cleansing the colon, which will lead to an easier weight loss attempt. Experts believe that one has to flush away the toxins first to effectively start losing the flab. When you visit a Koh Samui detox retreat, you will be fed nothing but healthy low calorie meals and your favorite sinful foods won’t be there to tempt you.

Freedom from worries

Everyone has something that pushes their worry buttons. Worrying too much—-whether about the past, present, or future or about even the slightest things can lead to stress accumulation. Worry is not good for you. Detox Thailand spa retreats promise their clients a moment of freedom from emotional baggages. While on a detox in Koh Samui, you will be surrounded by a blissful environment that will eliminate the critters that keep on bugging your mental and emotional state.

Pain reduction

Stress related pains like headaches, shoulder pains, stomach upset, and chronic muscle pains can be diminished by trying detox Thailand. A Thailand health retreat in Samui is often frequented by those who are seeking relief from all kinds of pains. If you experience getting tired all the time, entering a Thailand detox resort and staying there for a few days will bring you immense relief.

Clearer skin

Detox Thailand is also recommended for people who are battling hormonal skin issues such as acne. Pimples and acne are commonly caused by hormonal imbalances and lack of proper nutrition. Inside a spa retreat, only food that is made from fresh ingredients will be served. Herbal teas, fruit shakes, and salads will all improve the clarity of the skin, increase its elasticity, and improve its ability to fight free radicals that cause premature aging.

More optimistic perspective

The reason why detox Thailand in Koh Samui is popular is that people who go here leave with an improved sense of well-being and a more positive outlook on life. People who went through a period of depression, breakups, and childbirth-related emotional issues can benefit a lot by going on a detox in Koh Samui.

Spiritual awakening

Also among the benefits of detox Thailand retreat is spiritual awakening. One is able to get in touch with his inner self and achieve a higher sense of well being through spending some time in a quiet place.

Improved fertility

Couples who find it hard to bear a child should consider trying out one of the health resorts Thailand has to offer. Fertility issues are often associated with poor blood circulation, lack of vitamins and minerals in the diet, and internal imbalances. A stay inside a luxury detox Thailand Koh Samui retreat might remedy that.

Increased immunity

For those who are prone to viral attacks such as colds and infection, you will benefit a lot from going on a detox process. Aside from cleansing the colon, the special diet prepared in detox retreats can help increase the body’s immune system and improve the body’s defenses against common diseases.

Quality time with oneself

If you are a full time mom, an office worker, or are constantly under stress, you need to take a breather once in a while. Spending time with oneself and grabbing an opportunity to reflect and communicate with your inner being can save your sanity and allow you to cope with the demands of everyday life.

Better eating habits

Some people who struggle with health problems and weight issues are often so used to eating bad food. Inside a detox retreat, you will be taught to eat high quality foods that are packed with health improving ingredients. In addition, you’ll have an idea how to eat healthier since you will only be exposed to healthy meals while at a spa retreat.

Better digestion

Bloating, constipation, and cancer of the colon are all related to poor digestion. When you undergo a cleansing regimen, your digestive tract will be purified. Your liver will be able to function well and your kidneys will be able to do its job better as well. In addition, you can easily digest the food that you eat to facilitate all your other body functions.

Detox in Koh Samui has a lot of amazing health benefits. If you are looking for new ways to spend your island vacation, book a stay at a detox spa and see a healthier, more optimistic you. Good luck on your wellness journey.

7 Day Juice Detox. Personal experience Of Carol

This week’s cleanse has been a rich and potent experience.  I lost weight (not necessarily my goal for cleansing) and gained clarity and more self-awareness.  I thought my relationship with food was pretty balanced. I’m not an “overeater,” an “under eater”, an “emotional eater” or a “binger” but during these past 7 days, I’ve recognized just how much of my free attention is focused, from the moment I open my eyes in the morning, on what I will ingest first.  I thought I simply ate to sustain and enjoy myself, but I recognized some patterns of behavior around food that have become a bit of an addiction….like sugar.

Day one was fairly easy.  A raw food, pre-cleanse was the order of the day to get my body ready for  5 days of juicing.   Day 2 was a bit harder, as my morning cup of coffee with milk and sugar was not on the menu.  There was nothing to chew, which was foreign, but the fruit & veggie juices were delicious!  I was surprised at how many flavors I could detect when I savored each glass like it was my last meal.  Slowing down was one of the most valuable things I learned to do.  Really tasting my “meal” in a conscious way made the experience 10x’s more enjoyable.  The psyllium husk and bentonite clay drinks really helped to fill the void in my stomach when hunger approached. I found that using coconut water instead of regular water made the drink taste like a sweet, drinkable cereal.  

The vegetable stock in the evening was a much-welcomed flavor and also very satisfying and filling.  I thought I would feel tired without solid food, but surprisingly, I felt in fact, even more, energized than usual by day 3 of juicing.  Days 4 and 5 were off the charts as far as my energy went.  I was literally running from room to room in my house as I vacuumed every nook and cranny (even the ceilings!) The cleanse not only spilled over into my physical space (my house) but into other areas as well.  For instance, a friend loaned me money more than 6 months ago and I finally got around to communicating with her about an installment plan.  I’ll be sending her a bit of money monthly until it’s paid off.  I truly believe that cleaning out the debris in my body is what created this forward momentum.

This cleanse included colemas which I administered once a day.  The morning colema with the coffee additive was a nice caffeine boost and substitute for my usual cuppa Joe.  I also tried the garlic and apple cider vinegar.  The experience with colemas was at first uncomfortable, getting situated on the board and pumping water into my colon seemed alien.   Most of us are unused to this sensation.  It felt a bit like an internal tickle.  Massaging my stomach to allow more water in felt counterintuitive, but once I started to get accustomed to the sensation, it became “normal”.  Releasing the water felt amazing as I could feel myself letting go of old “stuff”.  Some bodily sensations I had during this were sweating and at times chills, as if I was breaking a fever.  It truly felt like toxins leaving my system and afterward, I felt lighter.  Not just in body but somehow in spirit as well.  Knowing that I’m doing something nice for my physical well-being brought a sense of inner peace and self-love as well.

My skin is feeling hydrated and softer and looks clearer than usual.  My energy level is high and my usually packed stomach feels lighter and more pliable.  I can feel the rest of my body more acutely and some of the chronic aches and pains in my joints are gone.  My relationship with food feels like it’s already shifted.  I want to slow down and savor my meals and taste all of the flavors there are to taste.  I have a desire for raw foods and salads and fruit and healthy snacks.  The things that used to look and sound good aren’t really appealing to me right now.  I see that I can survive rather happily without refined sugar in my diet.  This is not to say that I won’t continue to love and eat my beloved dark chocolate, but I think I will have a newfound appreciation for it.  J  I’m so happy that I hit the reset button on my diet and gave this cleanse a shot.  I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to create more health and presence around their relationship to food.
