“If you bring forth what is within you, what is within you will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what is within you will destroy you.” – The Gospel of St. Thomas
Toxification is when the body is unable to process and eliminate all the toxins that physically go into it, or are created by it in the quest to resolve stress. We are all in some way or another managing stress in a variety of ways and food and all other things we put in our mouth regularly plays a part in our self management process. When the body is under stress, we tend to put into the body the things that provide temporary relief – sugar, fat, salt, tobacco, alcohol, prescription and (illegal) drugs. All these can have detrimental effects, and it can take sometime for the body to resolve years of unhealthy habits.
Cleansing is not to be taken lightly, as once the body begins to clear toxins, then usually the emotional issues that have caused the negative addictive habits in the first place begin to surface. Therefore we approach detoxification with the gentleness and respect it truly deserves. The key is to identify and become aware of the underlying emotional and historical reasons for an unbalanced diet. Cleansing is a vital part of making any real change in our lives, and if managed and resolved correctly, can mean a completely new physical and emotional existence is possible — specifically the freedom from emotional and physical toxicity and the suffering that brings over the longer term. When you arrive we will take a detailed dietary history (basically everything that you like to put in your mouth) and ascertain a specific path toward the process of cleansing and detoxification that is tailored just for you.
The good part is physical cleansing is the path to really enjoying food and the extraordinary joy and health benefits a healthy, vital diet can bring to all of us. Thats a journey we would like to invite you to join us on!
