Detoxification has recently become popular as a weight-loss therapy. This begs the question, does detox actually help people lose weight? Today, RAKxa will provide details and answers to common questions about detoxing, and our Thailand detox packages and retreats.
When many people hear the word detox, they think of flushing toxins from the intestines in order to increase nutritional absorption. Detoxification, on the other hand, is the process of eliminating internal and external toxins from the body and mind in order to achieve optimal health and well-being.
The interest in Detoxification, and programmes like RAKxa’s Detox Retreats in Thailand have become more popular as the pandemic continues, combined with increasing rates of chronic diseases. Individuals are now becoming more aware of their health from studies on disease prevention and self-care through enhancing immunity. This makes detoxification receive more attention, as the benefits include boosting immunity, reducing inflammation, supporting liver function, promoting skin health, assisting in weight loss and digestion, harmonizing mood, and purifying the mind.
Detox diets can promote weight loss because many people opt for low-calorie diets such as the fasting diet or VLCD detox. These diets can be effective for rapid weight loss in the short-term, but often lead to weight gain when people return to their usual diet or consume products that are high in fat.
Detoxing, on the other hand, promotes long-term effective weight loss because it improves the functioning of the digestive system and food absorption. Other benefits include promoting liver function and balancing hormones, which is the key to metabolizing carbohydrates and reducing fat accumulation in the body, which then increases stability in long-term weight control. This can start with adjusting lifestyle choices including maintaining a healthy diet, planning moderate exercise, managing stress levels, and improving sleep quality.
There are many ways to detox based on the needs of the body, including colon cleansing, detox dieting, or a cleansing diet to remove harmful toxins from the body. The use of an IV Drip can bring essential antioxidants such as Glutathione, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Magnesium, and Cysteine directly into the veins, while lymphatic drainage medicine can detoxify the lungs and pranayama can restore balance to the mind.
For a sustainable detoxification of the body and mind, start by altering your everyday habits at home, or consider detox therapy from professionals to identify toxins in the body that need to be addressed with the treatments and specific programs that your body requires.
