Detoxification is the process of ridding unwanted toxins from the body at a cellular level to correct imbalances in the body.

Detoxification can help those with chronic fatigue, ulcers, fibrocystic breast disease, chronic headaches, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, yeast infections, premenstrual problems, hyperactivity, multiple sclerosis, atherosclerosis, skin rashes, allergies, respiratory problems, leg aches, hearing problems, senility, vertigo, arthritis, gout, kidney stones, osteoporosis, acne, constipation, numerous forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

The underlying cause for all disease is malnutrition, toxic accumulation and excess stress.

The list of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis is endless and ever increasing. From the toxins in the air we breathe, to those found in our food and water supply. In addition, we come into contact with cosmetics, medications, toothpaste, household cleaning products, hair spray, furniture polish, synthetic carpets and clothes… and the list goes on and on.

As we age our bodies are weakened by toxic accumulation, stress and a lack of essential nutrients. As a result our resistance to infection is decreased, sickness is more severe and more frequent, and recovery is slower.

The good news is our body has an amazing capacity to heal itself.

Although we cannot completely remove toxins from our environment, or completely avoid them in our everyday life, we can learn to deal with them, the best we can. We can do this by making sensible lifestyle choices and using various detoxification methods.

We have been guiding our guests through safe and effective detoxification for many years, with this experience we are able to advise and tailor a detox programme to suit your personal needs.

A Retreat is sanctuary where you are afforded the time and space necessary to detoxify and purify the mind, body and soul. Our intensive Detox Retreats are designed to enhance your body’s natural ability to detoxify, thus ensuring that when you leave our Retreat you are equipped to better cope with the daily stresses of modern life.

Although detoxification methods should be incorporated into your daily life (such as herbal supplementation, juicing etc), we highly recommend an intensive detox programme on an annual basis.

In order for a detox to be a successful you need to remove yourself from your everyday environment and pressures. Stress creates endogenous toxins in the body. This is a natural by product of spending too much time in fight-or-flight mode generating hormones like cortisol and adrenaline.

We run our specialised detox retreats at Fordoun Hotel & Spa in the Natal Midlands, KZN. Here you can unwind, relax and rejuvenate body and mind. Pristine country air, rolling hills, luxurious accommodation and the most advanced spa and hydro facilities enhance your detox experience and create a environment where you can nurture and pamper yourself.

Our renowned goal-oriented detox programmes have been designed from both a medical and scientific standpoint and have provided our guests with optimal results over many years. Our programmes will allow you to neutralise and safely eliminate the toxins which you have accumulated over time and assist you in making a lasting change to your lifestyle once back at home.

We aim to significantly alter your perception of healthy living by uncovering the underlying flawlessness of your body, mind and soul. And it is easier than you may think.
