For many of us today’s life has become very toxic. We may eat mass produced toxic food or food that has been grown or processed using toxic chemicals. We drink too much caffeine and/or too much alcohol. We may use toxic cleaning or personal care products and we all, to some extent or other, suffer from environmental and electro-magnetic pollution. Many of us also experience the toxic affects of stress, not enough sleep and too little exercise.
All this toxicity can build up in every system in the body, leaving us feeling tired, bloated, irritable/ depressed, perhaps with digestive complaints, skin issues, joint/muscle aches & pains, lowered immunity, and unable to shift weight. A Detox programme allows the body to take a break from the onslaught of toxic substances and mobilize its’ resources to eliminate stored toxins, therefore lightening the toxic load.
Many recent studies have found that fasting can bring about a whole range of health improvements and increased longevity. There are many ways of incorporating periods of fasting into your life, but many people find it hard to do a detox at home. What could be better than taking a detox break in luxurious surroundings, where everything is done for you?
Our detox programmes include everything you need to cleanse, alkalize, heal and restore your body to sparkling vitality. From our freshly prepared juices to our professionally delivered treatments, you will find Homefield offers a comprehensive and effective detox programme to suit everyone.
You can choose from 3, 5, or 7 day residential packages, and you can choose whether to do the Juice Fast or the Light Diet Detox.
The Juice Detox gives your overworked digestive system a complete rest. 50-60% of the body’s energy goes into digesting our food, so fasting allows that energy to be diverted into cleansing and healing. Our juices are not diluted or watered down and the ingredients are selected to ensure that you get the maximum cleansing and alkalizing effect. You can choose vegetable only or vegetable plus fruit (roughly 2 parts veg to 1part fruit). Most people find juice fasting very effective if they want to achieve maximum weight loss.
Your Juice Detox includes:
Lunch time: Juice
Dinner: Blended Vegetable soup
The Light Diet is still very cleansing and alkalising, but detoxes the body in a less intense way than the juices. Our chef prepares delicious, plant-based vegan meals, that delight the eyes as well as the taste buds. This option is often chosen by people who need inspiration as to how to prepare and serve healthy meals. Portions are light so that weight loss can still be achieved if that is your goal.
Your Light Diet Detox includes:
Breakfast: Our homemade gluten free granola with almond milk or coconut yogurt with berries
Lunch: Raw vegetable-based salad, with vegan protein such as beans, pulses, quinoa, avocado etc
Dinner: Blended Vegetable Soup
Cleansing Vegetable Soup for dinner for both programmes. Our tasty soups are blended from fresh vegetables, herbs and spices and are served with sprouted beans/pulses and seaweed. They are filling, comforting and highly nutritious.
