Detoxification

Detoxification has been used for hundreds of years as a means of resting, cleansing, and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health and vitality.

A detox program can help the body's natural cleaning process by resting the organs, stimulating the liver to drive toxins from the body, improving blood circulation, and refueling the body with healthy nutrients.

People are all so different, which is why Eden creates tailored personal detoxification programs for all of their unique guests, depending on individual needs. Firstly, they lighten the toxin load.

Before you even arrive at Eden, you will be asked to reduce or eliminate alcohol, wheat, coffee, cigarettes, lactose, refined sugars, and saturated fats from your diet, all of which can act as toxins in the body and obstacles to your healing process.

Minimizing your use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants, and toothpastes), and substituting natural alternatives also greatly enhances your health.

Another saboteur to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release potentially harmful hormones into your system. While these hormones can provide the "adrenaline rush" to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver.

Therefore, it is a good idea to detox stressful life situations along with detoxifying your body. It is impossible to detox the body without detoxifying the emotions and the mind, which is why this retreat incorporates counselling into the programs, creating a truly holistic program.

They use direct counselling, hypnotherapy or art therapy to support their guests in reaping the very most from their Eden experience, showing them how to recognize and stop self-defeating belief systems and cycles.

Diet

When in comes to food at Eden, you are in control and will decide what and when you eat, in accordance with your daily eating plan. The daily ritual of food gathering and preparation is used as a means of reconnecting with the importance of food to our quality of health. Taking time to taste, appreciate, and enjoy food is all too rare, as people live fast and demanding schedules. At Eden, everything is slowed down.

During your stay at Eden you will be reminded of many things, not the least of which is that 'you are what you eat'. Instead, by taking the time to prepare simple wholesome food, you take responsibility for nurturing and nourishing yourself as only you can. Your diet will mainly consist of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables, either juiced or lightly steamed.

You will also learn about the importance of juicing and eating live food; you will gain some appreciation of the herbs grown at Eden. You will be shown how to gather and make herbal teas, and learn a little about their ability to support you in cleansing the body and supporting good health.

Far infrared sauna

Far infrared sauna enables your body to eliminate wastes through perspiration. Normal sweat is 97-99% water, but sweat induced by far infrared sauna is only 80-85% water, the rest being composed of environmental toxins - some heavy metals, urea, cholesterol, and lactic acid. The process also loosens cellulite, trapped water, fat, calcium, fibrin, and cellular debris.

Meditation

Meditation is offered as a means of transforming stress and emphasizing positive emotions.

Therapies

Daily massage, reflexology or Reiki are all powerful, yet gentle modalities that will not only help the safe elimination process, but equally add to the feeling of support and nurturing that Eden is now renowned for.

Yoga

Yoga is part of the programs, in order to encourage deep breathing and thus oxygen to circulate more completely through your system. Yoga programs gently introduce students to the concepts and practice of this ancient art. Emphasis is on relaxation, correct breathing, strength, and flexibility, whilst realigning the body. Care is taken with students that have back pain, injuries or a medical condition.

You will be shown simple, effective postures to help relieve these disorders. The lessons are tailored to suit the individual, taking into account body type, age, level of fitness, and experience. For the advanced yoga practitioner or the general student wishing to extend their practice, a more dynamic flowing style of yoga is offered. The sessions combine elements of the Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Hatha traditions, giving a complete physical workout, followed by a centering relaxation.

Side effects

Detoxing symptoms can commonly include headaches, lower back pain, dry mouth, bad breath, skin rashes, nausea, body odor, fatigue, abdominal gas, rumblings, mucous discharge, anxiety, boredom, joint and muscular aches and pains, cold feet and hands, sleeplessness, and more, but remember not everyone suffers like this. You will be drinking at least three liters of water daily during your stay to minimize and, in most cases, eliminate any unpleasant side effects completely.

All meals will be served at this retreat. Food is based on an organic detox diet, consisting mainly of organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables, either juiced or lightly steamed. Eating plans will be tailored according to each individual's needs.

Deep tissue massage

A deep tissue massage uses various massage styles that are directed toward the deeper tissue structure of the muscle. It can be used to treat all, or specific muscles, and is designed to increase circulation and stimulate nerve endings to release tight muscles. This treatment is included in the price.

Deluxe facial

The deluxe facial steps up your pamper session to another level. Featuring all that the detoxify facial has to offer, this wonderful treatment also includes a relaxing facial and décolletage massage using cold pressed organic coconut oil. The slow, firm massage relieves tension from your face and shoulders, promotes relaxation, and increases circulation. It assists in reducing impurities and toxins, leaving you thoroughly relaxed and your skin radiant. The cost is 125 USD.

Detoxify facial

This wonderful treatment commences with the application of a cleanser to thoroughly cleanse away any make up, environmental pollutants, and excess oil without drying the skin. Next is a fruit acid peel, containing a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts that help to rapidly improve skin tone and texture, minimize the appearance of fine lines, and brighten the complexion. A detox mask is then applied. Containing a fine French green clay, it is used to absorb and remove toxins from the skin whilst nourishing, soothing, and improving skin tone and texture.

An indulgent hand massage is given while the clay works its magic, followed by a luxurious hot towel to remove the mask. Before finishing with the intensive age fighting, revitalizing moisturizer, your face and eyes are treated to a cutting edge serum that offers phenomenal hydration. Its lightweight formula helps combat under-eye circles, puffiness, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The cost is 110 USD.

Far infrared sauna

Infrared radiant energy is part of the sun's invisible electromagnetic spectrum of light, just below red light, that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heats the body directly, rather than just the air, and is similar to sunbathing, without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off. Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths, so does infrared light; running from shorter wave infrared to medium wave and long infrared. Many health studies have shown far infrared heat to be the most beneficial, penetrating the body's tissues to a depth of over one inch, and increasing circulation to help detoxify the body. This treatment is included in the price.

Hypnotherapy

Jacqueline is an accredited clinical hypnotherapist and a founding member of The West Australian Association of Hypnosis. This powerful tool is credited for the overcoming and healing of many chronic conditions, often after the exhaustive use of many other modalities. Hypnotherapy is exceptional in the overcoming of fears and phobias, but also in the strengthening of personal confidence, performance (on any and all levels), and physical conditions and symptoms. The benefits and application for hypnosis are extremely wide.

Iron flush therapy

The ionic detoxification footbath is a pleasant, noninvasive way for most people to detoxify the body. This specialized machine's ionization process works with the body's fluids and natural electrical energy to negatively charge the toxins in your body. So, while you relax and soak your feet in a warm bath, the toxins release and are drawn like a magnet to the source of the charge.

The tiny toxic particles actually pass through more than 2000 pores in each of your feet and into the water. There they accumulate on the array (the part of the machine that delivers the charge to water). Like particles are drawn to each other, and as they collectively bind together, they break away from the array and float to the top of the water. A 30-minute Iron flush therapy costs 40 USD.

Manicure and pedicure

Firstly, cuticles are soaked, treated, and trimmed, and then nails are shaped, buffed, and filed. A relaxing hand and forearm massage is carried out and lastly a polish of your choice is applied. To start the pedicure, your feet will be soaked in foot spa then a scrub will be used on the feet and lower leg. Cuticles are treated and trimmed, followed by nail shaping and filing. Feet and lower legs are massaged, then toenails are painted with a polish of your choice. The cost is 129 USD.

Reflexology

Eden now offers their guests the relaxing and beneficial delight of reflexology. This one-hour session works on the sole of the foot to stimulate healing throughout the entire body in a totally non-invasive and yet amazingly powerful way. This treatment is included in the price.

Reiki healing

Reiki training, in small groups or one on one, is also available for those who wish to make Reiki a living part of their lives. This treatment is included in the price.

Swedish massage

This is a relaxing, soothing yet stimulating massage that works on the light tissue and muscles. It is a wonderful massage for calming nerves, releasing tension, and improving overall circulation. Because the technique uses both slow and vigorous movements, the massage can be customized according to the results the masseur wishes to achieve.

Testimonials

  • Review by Alicia

    "I really didn't know what to expect when I first arrived. I hoped to finally give up smoking and lose weight. All in all, a good physical clean out. What I didn't expect was a complete detox body, mind, heart, and soul. Five days on I have never felt so good physically and emotionally. In all my years of therapy, no one ever taught me how to deal with my emotions, my past, and my demons until I came here. "

    "Thank you, thank you, thank you; you gave me back my life. I came here at the end of my tether. I was obese and a heavy smoker, this was my last resort. I'd tried every diet under the sun and all the quit smoking programs, nothing worked, I just couldn't do it on my own. I came for a two-week stay for weight loss and quit smoking, and didn't know what to expect, I was as nervous as hell but came with an open mind, I was at the point in my life where it was do or die. And wow was I pleasantly surprised, not only did I lose weight, get fit and quit smoking (immediately by the way), but I also found out why I was the way I was. It wasn't easy at first, I felt lonely but I hung in there and it was the best thing I ever did. I am leaving a much better person, in a much better place, I am going home as myself, not who I thought I should be. I feel fabulous; for me now the sky is the limit. I can never thank you enough, you have literally saved my life."

  • Review by Jodi

    "During my life I have read most probably a quarter of the self-help and spiritual development books in the library, but it was not until I came here to Eden that I really understood them. Thank you for opening my eyes, healing my heart and guiding me back from a human doing to a human being. I went to Bodghaya in India to sit under the Bhodi tree, I've done years of counseling, I've done a 10 day Vipassana, and I have gotten more out of this program than any of them! Thank you."

    "I arrived here five days ago overwhelmed, seeking a quiet place to hide. I had no expectations as to what might happen, but I was open to the experience. I sincerely thank all the wonderful women here who came with me on my journey, and who have held me emotionally and physically in a caring, nurturing way, trust them, trust the process. You will be okay. I leave today wholly myself."
