Lotus Retreat Themes

1. 7-Day Detox Cleanse Retreat

The 7-Day Detox Cleanse Retreat is a life changing euphoric experience.

“The seven day fasting and colon cleansing programme is an integrated system of self purification that combines the benefits of fasting, fibrous intestinal cleansers, nutritional supplements and daily colon irrigations.

It is a complete programme of blood and tissue detoxification that rejuvenates each and every organ, gland, tissue and cell in the body.

It takes exactly seven days to cleanse the entire blood stream by fasting, and it requires seven days to thoroughly rid the lymph system of toxins”
