Karuna Detox Program for body, mind & soul

Lose toxins, gain health!

Our Detox Program offers structure and space – time to listen to what your body wants and needs.
Time to stop, unwind, clear your mind, empty your heart. Break old habits, get cleansed, nourished and inspired.
For many of our clients this is a life changing experience, transforming relationship with food, body and self.

Information and encouragement is shared in a non-preachy way, with humour, anecdotes and is science based.
There is zero pressure to attend all sessions. And most find the programme supportive and inspiring!

Juice Fasting

With Organic vegetable & fruit Juices freshly made and locally sourced, provide micro nutrients for energy and clear intestinal mucous while you are fasting. Savoury vegetable (potassium) broth is served in evenings. We also provide a supplements to stop hunger and cleanse your system. Some experienced detoxers may prefer a pure water fast.

There is also the option for alkalising foods along the fast for people who are not able to juice fast (please request in advance). This will reduce the detox pace and lesson the symptoms.

Colonic Irrigation

Optional, thought most opt in, as eliminating toxins is key to health. Colonic Irrigations throughout the retreat are a safe and simple way to clean the Colon (large intestine) eliminating toxins and leftover matter. Colonic irrigations train the bowel in movement, clear constipation, improve digestion, aid health and increase immunity.

We will show and explain how to use the colonic units. Though most do, if you wish to fast without colonics, we will offer you colon cleansing herbs to eliminate toxins and waste from your intestines.

Dry Skin Brushing

Your skin is the largest organ of your body, it eliminates toxins just like your kidneys, liver and colon. Dry skin brushing helps keep the pores clear and the skin active to assist the body in this cleansing process. If your skin becomes inactive, its ability to remove excess toxins is impaired..
