Cleanse and Detox? What do they mean?
Cleansing is the natural process of eliminating toxins and waste from your body. In particular, toxic waste that has accumulated and is impacted in the large intestine. Detoxification is the powerful natural process that removes waste from your cells, organs and blood but when our bodies become so bogged down and toxic, we are no longer able to effectively detox naturally. When you do a comprehensive cleanse that includes thorough colonic irrigation, you jumpstart the natural detox process in your body. The 5 days you spend with me at the Vida Cleanse in Desert Hot Springs can change your life. Only your body can detox your body! At my 5 or 7 day Vida Cleanse, you will experience a complete cleanse. You will lose weight and kick start your body to begin the powerful detox changes within your body and you will gain all the tools you need to keep your body’s detox process healthy and strong after you leave.
At my Vida Cleanse fast retreat, you will be guided and supported so that eliminating solid food for 5 days will be easy. You will consume nourishing liquids, juice, teas and supplements. You will also cleanse your body with colonics. You will lose weight, experience a new found clarity and you will have the tools to change your life. When you leave my Vida Cleanse cleansing / detox spa retreat, you will be well on your way in the detox process. You will learn how to keep weight off and will have the emotional clarity and motivation to stay healthy!
Vida Cleanse is an opportunity to heal, learn and transform through juicing and fasting. My mission is to help you cleanse your body at the cellular level, utilizing colon hydrotherapy, massage, Tai Chi, workshops, light exercise and sauna sessions while soaking in naturally detoxifying mineral pools. Your detoxified body will do what it is designed to do best - HEAL ITSELF! I will help you on your journey to transform your body, mind, spirit and soul to achieve real, lasting results. I will guide you how to fundamentally shift your relationship to whole foods by teaching you how to adopt a more plant based way of life. My goal is to guide you throughout your journey to a more health conscious lifestyle after you leave THE SPRING. There is no better environment to begin your journey than at THE SPRING. Powerful, healing minerals are absorbed through the skin and will stimulate the healing process. I will assist you throughout your cleanse so you can achieve your goals in a unity of mind, body and spirit.
Most of us try to at least make time once a year for a good spring cleaning of our home. We pick up here and there in between but nothing major. But how many of us can say that about our own bodies? How often do you clean in every nook and cranny internally? Should you do it? When. Why?
Cleansing is a great way to achieve many things. For one, it can help you relieve stress in our body, mind, and spirit. It also helps to balance us and free us from addictions. It is a great way to heal from congestion, constipation, allergies, and most other diseases. And yes, you will lose weight. It can also increase our consciousness and spirituality. Cleansing removes excess amounts of mucus, old fecal matter, trapped cellular and non-food waste. Periodic cleansing helps purify the liver, kidneys and blood. It enhances mental clarity, inner peace, and increases energy.
Modern society, with all of its advances, has a lot of drawbacks. The price we pay for faster and cheaper manifests itself in the forms of stress, toxins, chemicals, air pollutants, and radiation. Our food is over processed, de-mineralized and chuck full of herbicides, pesticides, food colorings and preservatives. A strong and clean body can rid itself of most toxic waste but without proper cleansing, this waste can and will build up. A buildup of toxins is like a wall coating our intestinal tract. It does not allow good absorption of vitamins and nutrients. This makes our bodies susceptible to diseases and ailments. Without help, chronic illness can occur.
So the question becomes not if I should cleanse,
Let’s examine some common symptoms of toxicity in our body:
The optimal time to cleanse is on quarterly basis. But being honest and looking at the real world, it should at least be once a year, just like our house. Cleansing should become part of our routine to keep our systems vital!

Vida Cleanse Retreat Package Includes…
Colon irrigation is very important during your cleanse. The cleansing process is accelerated by colon hydrotherapy. Colonics are a safe effective way of softening and releasing waste that has accumulated into your colon. Colon cleaning will remove the toxins and waste that are loosened during the fast. Also, colon cleansing will eliminate cleansing reactions. You don’t want to be sick or have cleansing reaction headaches and cleaning your colon will eliminate those reactions. One Colonic irrigation session is included in your package with a trained and certified Colon Therapist. Additional sessions are highly encouraged and are at an additional charge. We use only FDA approved Dotolo Equipment.
