If you’ve been in an accident or recently underwent major surgery, did you know you could speed up the entire recovery process by a juice fast? Also known as a cleanse or detox, this is one of the best things you can do to improve the overall state your body may be in.
Starting at the mouth and working its way down to the stomach, gallbladder, liver, small intestine, pancreas, large intestine and rectum, the digestive process is immense. Moreover, it takes a large amount of energy for the body to digest food efficiently. Whether you have been involved in an automobile accident, had major surgery, or been ill for a long time, it can reduce the body’s ability to heal and restore.
Because the body redirects its energy to the healing process, it can hinder the maximum ability to digest food. These two things combined can lead to a slow recovery, lowered immunity, infection, inflammation, re-occurrence of the illness or weight gain.
A detox will help the small and large intestines to empty. The BMI (Body Mass Index) and BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) will decrease, as will the bodies temperature, heart rate and breathing. The nervous system begins to settle down, the acidity in the body becomes more alkaline, reducing inflammation, and lessening pain. Now the digestive system as a whole gets a break, and the body goes into a tranquil state of relaxation.
It is not uncommon for guests at New Leaf Detox Resort to have undergone a traumatic event that has led them to partake in a detox program. We have helped people who have been in motorbike accidents, car accidents, slip and falls, and those who have been battling severe illnesses like cancer. In Thailand, detox programs can be one of the best ways to start regaining strength, build confidence and cleanse the entire body from the inside out. Find out below how a detox program could support the healing process of injuries and illness.
Anesthetics and medications are very hard on the liver. When you are taking these pharmaceutical drugs regularly, it can thwart the functioning of the liver. Keep in mind that the liver is the primary organ for detoxifying the blood and body as a whole. If it was clogged at any time before the injury or surgery, the healing process could be even more sluggish.
A detox program that includes green drinks, fresh garlic and liver flushes can be the first step in getting the liver to function correctly. Through this, the body will not exert all of its energy on one organ.
When you’re injured or sick, your body will not readily produce the enzymes it needs to complete the entire digestion cycle. When this happens, you miss out on the potential load of nutrients that are critical to your body.
Juices and smoothies pack enormous amounts of nutrients, more than what most people have in any given day. These accessible to digest drinks will give your body the vital nutrients it needs- instantly. Moreover, you’ll get a massive dose of all these vitamins and minerals at every meal.
We prefer to use natural vitamin C with Amama berry. This is one of the most effective ways to ensure the body is getting everything it needs to speed up the healing process. Moreover, a juicing program will help protect blood vessels from leaking, increase vitamin C levels, protect cells from oxygen damage, heal the liver and prevent excessive inflammation.
While less connected to physical healing, a detox program rich in fibre will help speed up an individual’s overall digestion. Often, the digestive tract has slowed down from shock to the body, lack of exercise, unhealthy eating, stress and medications. Not only can this inhibit the healthy functioning of all organs, but it also can cause constipation, IBS and several other ailments.
A nutrient-packed detox program will be loaded in fibre. This fibre will allow food to flow effortlessly through the digestive tract, thereby creating optimal absorption of nutrients. Although a fibre rich detox is often unnoticed, it is one of the best secrets for maximizing the healing process and regaining your health.
During and after any surgery, your body will become overwhelmed with free radicals (toxins). These can result from the medications, trauma of the surgery, stress, anxiety or hospital foods.
Eliminating and re-balancing these toxins can happen through a complete detox while upping the antioxidants with turmeric, which our guests take daily from Air Thai Life, our supplement brand, vitamin A, C and E as, beta-carotene, magnesium, copper and zinc.
Weight gain is a common issue which people experience after an accident or injury. This can be attributed to depression, inability to exercise, medications, sleep disorders or unhealthy eating habits. In Thailand, detox programs will help to set the foundation for weight loss and recovery.
The kilos/pounds that shed will allow the body to feel lighter; thereby, it will move better while loosening tight tendons and ligaments. Weight loss will also be an essential promoter for regaining strength and self-esteem.
Accidents, especially those that were very traumatic, can cause a person to feel scared of the activity or moving vehicles. Low self-esteem, depression, fear or guilt are also emotional issues that can occur. The entire detox program can aid in much-needed relaxation. It can help a person work through concurrent emotional upheavals and open new possibilities to heal from the inside out.
Guided physical activity during a detox program can build self-confidence in things people thought they would never do again. These activities can also be therapeutic in that they will allow an individual to overcome fear or doubt related to PTSD.
A detox is not only relaxing for the physical body but also the mind. Many people are under an enormous amount of stress, pressure, worry or anxiety. These can occur from the injury, medical bills, problems with work or several other challenges. A detox program can help the mind, and all the wondering thoughts that so many of us have, to settle.
This is a vital time to replenish mental energy and find healthy ways to overcome any psychological blockages. By the end of the detox, a person will feel re-energized, motivated and ready to face any future hurdle with hope, confidence and positivity.
Ultimately, a detox program is an incredible opportunity for the entire body to heal from injuries or accidents. Organs get the chance to rest while white blood cells become plentiful and hydrated. The body is cleansed, toxins are reduced, and a build-up of waste is eliminated.
Regardless of your age, current state of health or gender, you can benefit from the cellular nourishment that detox will provide. Immunity enhances, the body is alkalinized, skin clears, pain is alleviated, hormones become more balanced, and the body as a whole begins to regenerate. You will feel better, and you will heal.
