Did you watch the TV show The Retreat with Nick Knowles on Netflix UK and BBC two? If like many people, you were impressed with the results Nick Knowles and his DIY co-stars got from this detox retreat, you will be happy to hear that you too can turn your life around.
If you are interested in participating in a detox retreat with Dominique Julien, the mentor of the show, along with other healers that made The Retreat with Nick Knowles a unique experience, you have come to right place.
We will be hosting a detox retreat in March 2018, where the TV show The Retreat was filmed in Thailand. Make sure to reserve your spot early, because the places are limited.
Detox and Heal with us!
Om Detox retreat is a complete body cleansing program that is designed for a total rejuvenation. You will experience a specialized detox diet composed of fresh fruits and vegetables, cleansing juices, fasting, detox shakes, natural supplements, yoga, meditation, massages, healing therapies, dietary counselling, cookery workshops, excursions and more. Come relax on the beach with us and finally take the time to rest your body and your mind.
We all need to press the reset button and detox from stress, environmental pollutants, toxins, heavy metals and other wastes accumulating in the body. Our toxic lifestyles affect our bodies in so many ways. Digestive issues, skin problems, depression, anxiety, insomnia, weight gain, candida overgrowth and chronic pain are just a few of the symptoms that can manifest from our everyday life. Going on a holiday is usually the answer, but does it really help? In general, we end up drinking and eating more crap than we would in the real world. In order to truly heal the physical and emotional body, we must take the time to rest in a detox retreat.

The Detox Retreat
There will be 7 days of fasting and colon cleansing during the retreat. You will follow OmDetox’s program, for a complete body cleanse and cell rejuvenation. Juices and coconut water will be permitted during the fast, as well as natural supplements, to support the liver and the kidneys, and to provide sufficient energy to attend your daily classes. You will drink 5 detox shakes daily, that will swipe your digestive tract clean of all residues and toxic waste that has been accumulating over the years. The intestinal cleaners will help eliminate parasites and Candida living in your gut, while encouraging healthy bowel movements and better assimilation of nutrients. Performing daily enemas will also clean the colon from plaque and bad bacteria, eliminating old faeces and avoiding the reabsorption of toxins.
Fasting is one of the most ancient methods of healing. It allows the body to reboot and start fresh. Digesting food demands a tremendous amount of energy. While fasting, the digestive system shuts down and finally allows the body to focus its efforts elsewhere. This is when true healing can occur. The body turns into scavenger mode and starts eating all the garbage. Fat cells are burnt for energy, releasing toxins that can be eliminated safely. During the first days of the detox, we can feel sick because of the toxic poison circulating in our body. But after a few days, the benefits are felt and we suddenly feel cleaner, healthier and lighter.
The 7 day detox and colon cleanse includes:
– 5 daily detox shakes with bentonite clay and psyllium husk powder
– 10 daily nutritional supplements
– 10 daily intestinal cleaners capsules
– 1 daily probiotic (+ probiotic replacement for an additional 3 weeks post-cleanse)
– 2 daily self-administered water enemas
– Detox introduction
– Detox manual
– Daily detox group meeting with discussion, Q&As and lectures
– Support throughout the cleanse
– Daily juice
– Daily coconut water
– Daily herbal tea
– Daily vegetable broth
Our detox products contain the following ingredients:
Herbal Supplements: Spirulina, Chlorella, Moringa, Alfalfa, Wheatgrass. Our vegan formula will provide additional nutrition such as protein and lipid, to maintain normal functions during the cleanse.
Intestinal Cleaners: Triphala, Turmeric, Clove, Ginger, Garlic, Fennel, Fenugreek. These herbs can break up toxic buildups in the intestines and remove the accumulated plaque and faecal matter. This is a gentle and non-abrasive laxative.
Bentonite Clay (powder) binds to toxic material and carries it out for elimination. It can absorb up to 40 times its weight. It is the best heavy metal detoxifier and it helps eliminate mold, fungus, toxins and other chemicals.
Psyllium Husk is the best for cleansing the digestive tract. The fibre sweeps the intestines clean of all waste, binding to loosened plaque and other toxic material. It also helps to relieve hunger during this complete body cleanse.
