Detox & Weight Loss Advice from Kamalaya Karina Stewart - Kamalaya

Losing weight is generally at the top of the wish list for many people thinking about a detox, and while it is usually one of the results, it’s not the purpose, and what you gain from a detox is much more impressive than what you lose.

Kamalaya's detox programmes support and enhance the body's ability to eliminate toxins and accumulated waste so to rediscover its ideal balance - creating a foundation for optimum health, longevity and personal growth. The programs support improved cellular metabolism and the bodily organs to work more effectively often resulting in weight loss. It's a great way to jumpstart your metabolism and set the foundation for better weight control in the long term.

Despite the popularity of detox programs, many people are confused about the real payoffs and what the process involves. Among the guests that come to Kamalaya for the first time, there are two main detox expectations; weight loss and deprivation. The majority find that weight loss happens – albeit at a safe and sustainable rate – but deprivation doesn’t. The most pleasant surprise for many however, is how incredibly good they feel afterwards – both physically and emotionally – and how that feeling of wellbeing carries forward into their life.

A professionally guided detox programme is a foundational health practice suitable for almost anyone. Following a detox, your entire level of health is improved; your metabolism, immune system, brain and digestive system are all given attention, strengthened and re-energised in the process. Any inflammation you may have is reduced and hormonal balance is also supported. Kamalaya’s approach to detox is based on research from the past several years in the fields of Naturopathy, Functional medicine and TCM, bringing Asian healing traditions together with the more scientific bio-chemical Western examination of how things work. While our detox programs do not involve fasting, they are result-oriented and ensure safety, efficacy, and sustainability. We nourish and nurture every step of the way through the detoxification process. Kamalaya’s signature detox cuisine is designed to provide essential nutrition for detoxification. The aim is to increase cellular metabolism, minimize toxic intake, reduce inflammation and improve digestive and every organ function. In our experience, this approach is a safe, extremely effective and enjoyable experience for our guests. 

Kamalaya’s aim is to inspire and educate guests to make their own discoveries. We believe if our guests co-create their own experience and make their own choices, guided and motivated by our health experts, they are more likely to integrate new healthy habits at home. For example, once our guests experience how good a healthy diet and morning yoga can make them feel and discover how delicious and simple healthy food options can be, we believe they are more likely to make similar choices back home and may include some of these newly learned habits for long-term and sustainable change.
