All of our programmes are detoxifying and cleansing, though the only our signature Detox involve fasting (the Gentle Cleanse and the Raw Fest both include eating).
I AM CONFUSED BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DETOXES YOU OFFER
Our signature Detoxes vary only in length – we recommend 3.5 days, 5.5 days, 7.5 days and 10.5 days, though you can shorten or extend the length of your fast while you are doing it – the only difference between them is length of time.
The signature Detox involves a complete fast and daily colonics.
The Gentle Cleanse differs from our signature Detox in that it includes one meal a day and no colonics.
The Raw Fest involves eating only from our raw cleansing menu for 7 days, plus all sorts of healthy treats such as fresh coconut with spirulina and wheatgrass shots.

IS THERE ANY EATING ON DETOX?
Not on our signature Detoxes – you enjoy a light vegetable broth in the evenings.
The Gentle Cleanse involves one meal a day.
