Detox Diets

You only need to do a quick search on the internet about detox’s to be inundated with information about detox diets, one of the most popular methods for undertaking detoxification. Detox diets are quite simply a diet plan that state they have effects that encourage detoxifying in the body.

Detox diets state that most foods contain many differing ingredients that are no necessary for human life such as enhancers, colouring, pesticides and the added preservatives. Even though health practitioners such doctors think there is nothing harmful in undertaking the diets (unless there is extreme deficiency in nutrients as a result) they are all of the understanding that there is no need for them. In some cases people have actually seen their symptoms get much worse due to the delays in getting proper medical help due to firstly trying to undertake a detox diet.

Detox diets can include eating a very narrow range of foods for instance some diets have you only consuming fluids like water or special juices, this is known as juice fasting, this takes away from someone eating certain food groups such as fats and carbohydrates.

The diets themselves are normally high in fiber, many people claim the reasoning behind this is that it will then cause the body to burn any stored fat. They claim that this method releases any fat toxins into the blood which can then me flushed from the body via urine, faeces and skin (sweat). This claim however has been highly criticised also for not giving accurate facts of what could be the human body going through ketosis.

Even though undertaking something like this for a short period of time may not cause harm, any lengthy exposure to such a diet or fasting can have dangerous long term effects and could even be fatal.

Cleanse your body with a Detox in Thailand

Detoxing is becoming an increasingly popular method of promoting our health and cleansing our bodies of all of those nasty chemicals and toxins that we expose ourselves to on a daily basis. Where diets simply promote weight loss and the health benefits that are associated with that, a detox has a positive impact on our organs and digestive tract where many diseases originate. Cleansing these essential parts of our body and restoring the natural balance provides numerous health benefits and will give you a new lease of life.


Modern lifestyles particularly those experienced in the western world, see us putting a whole host of toxins into our bodies from processed foods, excessive amounts of meat, chemically sprayed crops and an abundance of chemical concoctions in the forms of drugs and medication. Daily stresses can also have a significant effect on the chemicals that are released into our bodies in an attempt to help us cope and that is the reason why there is no better way to detox than in the peaceful and beautiful natural surrounding of Thailand.


All of those chemicals and nasty substances that we force our bodies to endure have an effect not only on our physical health but also on our brains and mental health. A Detox Thailand experience will not only cleanse the organs and blood and promote weight loss but it will also provide you with clarity of mind, vitality and increased receptivity. To detox alone whilst your at home isn’t enough to provide your body with all of the tools it requires to properly heal and restore itself, we also require quietness and stillness to return the natural balance back to our bodies and mind. Thailand is the ultimate location to experience the required environment and achieve this state of wellbeing.


When considering a Thailand Detox you will have a number of options concerning the length of time, for which you wish to carry it out. A week is considered long enough to provide you with a thorough cleanse without being so long that your body begins to be deprived of the essential nutrients it requires from food. From the comfort of your private beach bungalow look out onto the breathtaking views of the sea as you feel the toxins, stresses and aches and pains float away from your body.
