Detox

Toxic material is found in everything we eat and drink and in the air we breathe, as well as in alcohol, tobacco, legal and illegal drugs. We also produce toxins internally when we are stressed as our body releases toxins accumulated in the fat cells which circulate in the bloodstream. Vitamin and mineral deficiency as well as allergies are common symptoms of a toxic body, as well as fatigue, depression, skin problems, back pain, joint pain, etc. A detox is a natural way to get rid of unwanted toxic material in the body, a vacation for the entire organism which is purified to achieve maximum health. When toxins are released during a detox program, symptoms of headache, irritability, tiredness and skin eruptions, nausea, heartburn, as well as aching bones and joints can be experienced. This depends on the amount of toxins in the body and it is a natural process.

Detox at Marga Yoga

Marga Yogas detox programs combine a healthy raw diet, fresh juices, and natural supplements to give the body all it needs and to assist in removing toxic material from the intestines with the aid of natural ingredients and colonics. We use a combination of Ayurvedic and Thai herbal remedies, as well as Tibetan therapies aiming at cleansing and rejuvenating the body. Himalayan salts are used to provide the 84 essential minerals we are made of, resulting in a well-balanced detox.

What to expect

By using natural ingredients, we can assist in the detox program depending on the symptoms manifesting. Once this stage is passed, the feeling of a clean body manifests and we will feel more energetic, alert, and full of vitality. A detox is a time of reflection; once we learn to listen to our body, we will learn what is good for it and be more aware of our lifestyle. All the products used in our detox are 100% natural.

Raw food diet

A raw food diet is a diet which is 75-100% natural, live, organic raw and unprocessed food, and live water. Cooking produces toxins which store in the body disrupting the acid/alkaline balance and leading to disease. It destroys live enzymes which are essential for digestion and for all the chemical processes in the body. It also creates carcinogens and free radicals which develop into cancer, heart disease, and premature ageing. This is especially true in frying which makes oil oxidize destroying vitamin A and E that the body requires to protect us from free radicals.

Eating raw food benefits health and longevity as it contains nutrients that are not available in cooked food, such as natural hormones found in live superfood, oxygen which is essential to prevent diseases like cancer (which cannot exist in an adequately oxygenated body); enzymes, which are essential for digestion and natural antioxidants. Cooking destroys most of the original nutrients of the food; food processing and refining also cause enormous changes in the food we eat as the heating process kills enzymes.

A raw food diet is alkaline contrary to a diet of processed, refined, and cooked food which creates acid in our system. If the body gets too acidic, it borrows minerals such as calcium from our bones to be able to neutralize the bloodstream. This is the cause of osteoporosis as well as other diseases which thrive in a high acid environment. Maintaining the body alkaline means having a disease free body. The human body regenerates itself continuously as every cell replicates itself regularly. By cleaning out cells by consuming a raw food diet, the body becomes pure in only few days it totally renews in a matter of months.

Alkaline food is raw food that, when metabolized, leave an alkaline residue in the body. It is the alkaline/acid balance of the body to determine if disease can survive or not in the body. Disease thrives in a more acidic environment, while health flourishes in alkaline surroundings. The raw food diet includes fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, seaweed, dried fruit, juices (if freshly made), and mineral water. Dried food is allowed as the drying process doesn't reach a temperature high enough to kill off enzymes.

Most raw food is very high in vitamins and minerals, providing an excellent source of the nutrients needed by the body. Raw food is easily digested supplying a great amount of energy and providing a high quantity of water needed by the body. Consuming raw food makes the body less prone to illnesses such as cancer and heart disease. Energy level increases and other benefits can be seen in clear skin, stronger hair, and nails.

A raw food diet should be started gradually reducing the amount of cooked food while incorporating more raw vegetable, fruits, and juices to each meal. This is especially true if the previous diet was high in toxins as the detoxification process would manifest as headaches, nausea, as well as other symptoms for the first few days. Detoxification symptoms manifest according to the amount of toxins present in our body .

By cooking, most vitamins and minerals are destroyed; this leads to lack of enzymes which our body needs to maintain and repair our organs. Lack of enzymes results in poor health and disease. Raw food, on the contrary, retain all their nutrients. The raw food detox encourages a natural and healthy lifestyle; the build up of toxic material in the body leads to many health problems including low energy. This is because the body is too busy processing unhealthy food and it has little energy left to do anything else. Some of the benefits of the raw food detox are:

  • Increased energy
  • Less cravings
  • Weight loss and maintenance
  • Improved skin appearance
  • Better digestion
  • Weight loss

The raw food detox eliminates all processed, cooked, and artificial food as well as refined sugars. It flushes out toxins and waste products from the body and it encourages a healthier lifestyle by eating as much fresh and raw food at each meal as possible. It is based on unprocessed, uncooked plant food (fruit and vegetables), sprouts, seeds, nuts beans, and seaweed. It is low in sodium and high in potassium, magnesium, and fibers.

Side effects

Some people experience a detoxification reaction when they start the raw food diet, especially if their previous diet was rich in meat, sugar, and caffeine. Mild headaches, nausea, and cravings can occur, but usually last for several days.
