The undisciplined lifestyles that many people lead today has led to poor health, which manifests itself in different ways. City dwellers live in a polluted and stressful environment, challenging our health. When we lose the ability to handle these challenges in a holistic way and they are not adequately addressed, diseases can develop.
Regular detoxification is not just important; it is absolutely critical for our health. Our program is designed to neutralize and eliminate unhealthy physical and emotional toxins, including physical toxins from our environment and by-products from the chemical processes that keep us alive, plus emotional and behavioural toxins which can negatively affect health.
How does Detox work?
Toxins are eliminated through a variety of methods, using Ayurvedic treatments. Ayurvedic medicine has been used for natural detoxification for thousands of years
Through treatment, the body’s ability to cleanse and repair itself improves. Essential nutrients for healing damaged tissues are provided, and all of the systems of the body are better able to work harmoniously together. Long-term strategies to prevent ‘re-toxing’ are introduced. The body and mind are cleansed and refreshed leading to improved health.
The Destination Detox program is based on Ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda, also known as the ‘knowledge of life’ is a well-respected and proven health practice.
Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Ayurveda has been enjoying a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world. Tibetan medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine both have their roots in Ayurveda.
Ayurveda uses herbal and natural methods to improve health and vitality. The herbs used for the detoxification treatments are handpicked and sourced from local reliable markets.
Ayurveda is a very ancient system of holistic therapy that gives importance to one’s lifestyle and helps the individual to attain a balance through the judicious use of herbal and mineral preparations. The system believes that our lifestyle largely decides the quality of our physical and mental states.
Ayurveda holds that perfect health results from a harmonious balance between the three subtle energies of vata, pitta, and kapha, called tri-doshas. Each of these ‘doshas’ has certain characteristic features which manifest their effects on the human body.
The medical staff supervising the program are very experienced in the dosas, as well as Shamana Chikitsa (restoration therapy) and Shodhana Chikitsa (cleansing therapy).
Ayurvedic treatments help eliminate harmful substances, thereby maintaining harmony among the various functional systems in the body by focusing the removing of ‘Malas’ [metabolic wastes]. Ayurveda deals with prevention of diseases and thus the preservation of overall physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. It is not just an alternative medicine system, but an efficient, long established and therapeutic science.
