There are some benefits that Pura Vida Wellness Retreat's clients have experienced in the past from this work. Please note that these results cannot be guaranteed. You must take 100 percent responsibility for your own healing, complete the program, and continue healing practices after the retreat. Here are some of the benefits:
Most people feel quite full and do not get hungry and feel lighter with more energy than when eating since the digestive process normally consumes a lot of energy. Some people, on the first or second day, have a temporary sense of hunger because the organism is conditioned to want food and have a full feeling in the belly. This usually passes quickly. If you need extra nourishment, Pura Vida Wellness Retreat can add blended raw green soups and miso broth.
In order to achieve more benefits from your cleanse, you should be eliminating acidic foods like processed foods, alcohol, caffeine, sugar, meat, dairy, and wheat from your diet, at least two to three days before the retreat. Eat more alkaline and whole foods, such as vegetables, fruits, almonds, quinoa, and red rice. In addition, drink plenty of fresh water at least eight glasses a day.
