Thailand is one of my very favorite places to hold retreats. There are so many great places to visit in the south of Thailand especially, places like Phuket which is close to the famous Phi Phi island from the Leonardo DiCaprio movie, The Beach. And just so many fantastic things to see and amazing things to experience.
If you venture North in Thailand you arrive in a place nothing like the beaches and scene you find near by the beach. You discover enchanting mountains as far as the eye can see, Elephants and traditional Thai folk going about their business.
The culture is really spectacular in places like Chiang Mai than it is on the islands like Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and the diving island of Koh Tao.
We will be holding a retreat this year in Thailand and we are already beginning to contact our closest clients about it. There will of course be bookings made available at early-bird rates for many who wish to join, and sign on early.
The retreats are a classic detoxification using only natural cleanses, not colon hydrotheraphy. I know that many do use and in certain cases there may be benefit for a client to do colonic irrigation, yet it can likewise be unsafe — and unnecessary.
When you use the correct cleansing ingredients like turmeric, ginger and clove, and combine them in to quasi Jamu traditional detoxifications, with a touch of Ayurveda and some touches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, you will see that your body will have what it needs for thorough detoxification.
For heavy metal detoxification we use Spirulina and other “chelating agents“, which is a posh way of saying detoxifying foods that bind to heavy metals and thereby remove them from your system with a type of flush.
Remember, with detoxification, it’s your body that is doing the work. Healing is very much like this. The body can heal from many things. That’s not to say that it can cure itself of some kind of disease, which is something that you should only seek western medical attention for.
Yet for losing weight, reducing toxic load from heavy metals to pollutants in food, air and water. As well as working as a type of “reductionist diet” whereby we remove items like gluten, lactose, soy, nuts, meat, alcohol, tobacco and so on which often are causing intolerance and sometimes allergy.
With this we enjoy the gift of time. Allowing our minds to let go and heal, too! It’s not just about the body. In fact you will be astounded that when you let go of pain in the mind it will OFTEN lead to letting go of pain in the body.
Absolutely there are many types of pain which need western medical attention. Yet don’t forget about what they have been doing for thousands of years in the East, either.
And it’s also wise to remember that treatments like Acupuncture now are very well accepted in the western medical system. In fact a holistic view on health and wellbeing is being “rediscovered” if it were in the west and this whole body and mind approach seems to be leading to better overall treatment and results.
Our philosophy is that we don’t know exactly what works and what does not. Yet we do know that the combined effort of all the health, wellness and mental improvements we make, lead to a better overall sense of wellbeing, less excess fat and more mental headspace. Not to mention a greatly improved drive and vision for ourselves and our lives, with new energy to back it up!
Yes I can safely say that a “change of the oil” every once in a while as it were, a time to take some time, and health activities like meditation, Yoga and cleanse is not only safe, it’s great for you!
And with the healthy encouraging environment you will find at our retreats… you will see why so many of our clients lose weight on our programs, and make lifestyle and habit changes that serve them everyday in their lives.
I’m so excited to talk to clients from retreats we’ve run in Bali, Spain, India, Mexico, Thailand and of course in Costa Rica.
I hope you’re beginning to get as excited as I am about these new upcoming weight loss retreats in Thailand! Because this is going to be a special treat and will be very similar to our Bali retreats, yet with a big Thai difference!
As they say in Thailand “same-same, but different”.
Take care and blessings to you and your family. May health and good fortune spill into your life from every direction.
