A detox holiday can be life changing and while there are many detox holidays and retreats to choose from, it’s important that you find the right one to ensure that you are able to reap maximum benefits. People may choose to go on a detox holiday for different reasons: to cleanse and boost the immune system, for weight loss, for an energy reset, to break away from unhealthy lifestyle choices or following a period of illness. With the right support and guidance from a specialist, the desired results are easily reached.
Why not do it yourself, you might ask. There are plenty of DIY detox kits available, however, if a detox isn’t followed properly, it could be harmful to your body and could have a detrimental effect to your health. In addition, there are often side effects during the initial days of the detoxification process, often referred to as the detox flu, which might make it more difficult to stick to a self-guided detox.
Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why a detox holiday could benefit you:
1. You'll have professional support
You’ll have an initial consultation with a specialist practitioner to ensure you receive the right treatment and support for the detox to be a success. During the initial days of the detoxification process, there can be side effects such as fatigue, nausea, headaches and hunger pangs as your body starts to expel the toxins that are in your system. This is a good sign that your body is staring to cleanse itself.
2. You'll be surrounded by like-minded people
At the start of the programme, you might feel irritable due to the withdrawal symptoms, but the team will be on hand to motivate you and keep your inspired and on track. Some people also prefer to be in an environment surrounded by people with a similar mindset, rather than trying to avoid temptations alone.
