Lifestyle (Detox) Program no 9
November 20, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - December 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
This is an information sheet that shares with you what you could expect to experience if you do decide to come to our centre for a lifestyle program.
It is with pleasure that we welcome you to our Lifestyle Centre that is operated much like a family home. Our passion is sharing simple methods of how to become and stay well with you, our guest. The methods and procedures that we will use during your stay at the centre are focused on creating conditions that gently but speedily guide your body back a near as possible, within the time period with us, to being able to perform the way it was designed to perform.
Our cleansing and healing process works in two main ways:
- Your body will experience gentle and effective procedures that will cleanse the body and stimulate function.
- You will be exposed to lifestyle awareness education in personalized workshops that should motivate you to adopt a simple and effective healthy lifestyle. Awareness of health will be built into all that you experience during the course of each day. It is important that you make every effort to attend each and every workshop.
Your daily program is built around the acronym NEWSTART.
N – Nutrition at its best and simplest
E – Exercise
W – Water, used both internally and externally
S – Sunshine
T – Temperance (avoiding what is harmful and moderation in what is good)
A – Air
R – Rest
T – Trust in God
Our longer term methods do not require extremes of diet. The body can be encouraged into fasting mode by our two-meal a day, plant-based diet. If you follow our plan, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that you experience no hunger pangs. Mugs of cleansing herb teas and fresh juices (much of which is picked fresh out of our organic garden) will be offered to you during the course of each day. You will not be offered caffeine drinks in any form.
Exercise, time in sunshine and plenty of fresh air will be pleasantly incorporated into your day. We hope that you will quickly come to experience true rest 24-hours a day. Massages that you will be offered help to cleanse, stimulate your body and bring it to rest.
If you are a smoker please expect to smoke your last cigarette before you come in to the Centre. We will be pleased to assist you in breaking “the habit” in the most stress- and symptom-free method that we know of. To this end, no drugs or hypnotherapy is used. The same individually designed program can help you quit other habits that incorporate the use of habit-forming substances (legal and otherwise) while, simultaneously avoiding the trauma of the withdrawal process. It is important that you share with us information about any addictive habit (even caffeine) that you may have before you are admitted for a program as a large part of the success of the program lies in our specially designed preparation program that occurs before admission.
Our most common hydrotherapy procedure involves the use of a steam cabinet which, in effect, is a very carefully and individually monitored body sauna. The head is cooled with ice water and the body heats up while the procedure is in progress. This procedure should be a potent body cleanser and immune system stimulant. You may wish to bring a pair of shorts and a T-shirt to wear during the procedure. Detox Packs are applied to your abdomen in order to help stimulate the cleansing process.
The core of our practice incorporates a Creator-God who values and respects each person. We believe in the restoration power of this all-powerful and loving God. While we are transparently Christian, we respect those of other faiths and make it policy to be sensitive all needs and feelings. Please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns with us. Our dietary principles are acceptable to all faiths.
We are not a clinic, hospital, a rehab or frail-care unit. Unless prescribed b your medical doctor for exceptional conditions, our program involves no medical procedures. Our key staff are trained by our company to a high level of expertise. Though staff can be on call at night, there are no night staff on duty. Thus it is important that you are able to attend to all your own basic needs. Please inform us beforehand of any challenges or needs that you know or feel that you may have.
You may use this program as a once-off short-term “feel better” experience but our real wish is that you will commit yourself to making a real longer term lifestyle change. This total commitment to the planned program can only come from you. This program is designed to make you feel better. During the program you will experience that your mind becomes clearer as well . Some cells in your body replace themselves with new healthy cells very quickly. Others replace themselves more slowly. We encourage you to plan to keep to the basics principles of the lifestyle for at least 6 months in order to give the “slow change” cells a chance to become healthy cells. Your best benefits will come when this new lifestyle becomes a permanent part of your life. Not doing this will most probably result in all your old lifestyle diseases returning. We would like to share with you how to make this change in a manageable and simple way. We want it to become an adventure that can lead you to permanently wake up in the morning experiencing quality of life and no pain.
You are investing in your long-term health and satisfaction. It is important that you be prepared to involve yourself in all aspects of the program as fully as possible. Through open communication we are fully committed to helping you achieve this goal. You will find us encouraging you to communicate both your concerns and your pleasures so that we are always in touch with your daily experiences. We hope that you will quickly discover that our centre becomes a “safe haven” for the body.
