Instead of succumbing to the many temptations of Thailand’s extraordinary nightlife and decadence that lies within, why not dedicate one week of your life to getting healthier? At a detox retreat in Thailand, you could have a life altering experience that helps you jettison the harmful habits that threaten to catch up with you when you get older. Unless you’ve been living on Mars for your entire life, you’ll know that Thailand has some of the best attractions during the day and night in the world. You’ll also know that levels of heart disease, obesity and general unwellness have also escalated out of control.
Obesity In the United States for example, an estimated 66% of the population are overweight. Some 33% of the population is clinically obese. Yet America is just the tip of the iceberg. These frightening statistics can be seen all over the world. Consumption of processed foods and alcohol is at an all-time high as are the number of smokers worldwide. Add in environmental pollution and the average person in a Western society has an alarming amount of toxins in his/her body. Although a detox retreat in Thailand will not instantly wash away decades of excess, it will significantly improve your overall wellness and perhaps lead you on to a road of long lasting good health.
Real FoodDetox retreats in Thailand usually last a week and involve eating organic foods and consuming special beverages made from plants and algae. The idea is to wash away the toxins that currently inhabit your body. It is likely that your initial time in a retreat will be difficult as the body is purged of environmental toxins and the garbage that resides in your system from a lifetime of unhealthy eating habits. However, once you overcome this obstacle, the rest of your time at the retreat will be amazing. Imagine waking up in a sunny paradise feeling full of energy and vigour. Instead of staying in bed until noon with a terrible hangover, you will be able to walk the golden beaches and explore the awesome scenery nearby. Visitors report that by the end of the retreat, food is the last thing on their mind.
The staff at a detox retreat in Thailand does their best to ensure their visitors have a pleasant stay. The difference between Thailand and Western retreats is stark. In the United States, such locations are run like prison camps and the whole experience seems more like a custodial sentence than a holiday. In Thailand, you will be treated like a guest. The staff’s main job is to ensure that the retreat is not polluted with processed food and other toxic substances from outside. Otherwise, you are free to do whatever you like and with so many activities on offer, that strange sensation you feel when your body is cleansing itself will hardly be noticeable.
If you want to finally do your body a favour, go to a detox retreat in Thailand. Free yourself from a dependence on unhealthy foods, soak up the sun and return home a new person with outstanding eating habits and a healthy lifestyle to match.
