Did you know that bowel problems, in some form or another, trouble almost 70 million people in America? When your colon gets congested with stagnant waste, toxins get reabsorbed back into the system, polluting your inner environment. Called autointoxication, this may be a contributory factor to almost every disease. A build up of fecal matter along the colon walls poses a serious interruption in waste removal at a cellular level, which in turn adversely affects many of the body’s essential functions.
Cleansing and detoxing the body begins with working on the colon. This clears the path for the rest of the organs to detoxify. The foods we serve here at Costa Rica Jungle Retreats are designed to begin that process of cleansing; light and easy to digest yet packed with enzymes, minerals, vitamins. We also highly recommend taking it to the next level using enemas or colonics. Colon cleansing can begin to clear out all the toxic junk that has built up (and stayed) in your intestinal tract for years. Participants are always amazed at the deep sense of well being a clean colon produces. Instruction, support, supplies and encouragement are readily provided.
Along with cleaning your colon we start the rebuilding process with a variety of lacto-fermented foods and drinks, Kombucha, coconut water kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso and others all working to transform your gut flora. Did you know that two thirds of your immune activity occurs in the gut? Not only that, but we need those good bacteria to help us digest and absorb food, produce B vitamins, and keep invaders out.
Of course a nutritious diet along with plenty of water, fiber, and exercise are all needed to keep your colon healthy. And a healthy and happy colon is only one of the many reasons to spend a week at a health retreat in Costa Rica!
So whether it’s constipation, irregular bowel movements, weight gain or just low energy join us and bid the discomfort ‘adios’!
