DO YOU HAVE A DOCTOR ON SITE?
Yes, we do have Thai Traditional Medicine Doctor who will be your Program Supervisor through your journey. Atsumi is a holistic healing centre, which means we use alternative treatments to the medical industry. At the beginning of your Detox Program you will meet with one of our program supervisor who will advise you and support you during your detox program. We schedule regular check-ins with our supervisors during your program to make sure everything is running smoothy, to offer advice, recommendations and support if needed. Of course, our doctor is here to support & advise.
CAN ANYONE DO COLONICS?
Colonics are not suitable for everyone. You cannot do a colonic if you have been diagnosed with any of the conditions listed here, though it is still possible to follow one of our detox programs. Colonics can be substituted with one of our alternative therapy such as an oxygen or infrared dome session which are an effective way to break up toxins and reduce inflammation in the digestive tract.
Alternatively, you can follow our Active Cleanse Program which is s similar to our Signature Raw cleanse program but does not include “colonics”.
CAN I FAST/DETOXIFY IF I HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE &/OR HIGH CHOLESTEROL?
We have many guests who come to our centre with high cholesterol and hypertension. In fact, many of them come to fast/detoxify specifically to help with these issues. An important body activity during a fast is greatly increased diuresis. Diuresis is the excretion by the kidneys of salt and water. Medical doctors give diuretic drugs to high blood pressure patients in order to decrease the amount of salt and water in the body, which will then result in lower blood pressure. Diuretic drugs, however, damage body tissues. While fasting, the body spontaneously and automatically eliminates salt and water without damaging body tissues. This diuresis is of tremendous health benefit. Although fasting can drastically reduce high blood pressure for those suffering from hypertension, we never recommend that anybody stop taking their medication for this condition.
Fasting can also indirectly help with issues regarding high cholesterol as the whole process helps to clean the blood and liver, thereby improving the body's ability to digest and break down fats and lipids. However, this is of course dependent on the commitment of the individual to make the necessary changes to their diet and lifestyle
SHOULD I CONTINUE TO TAKE MEDICATION WHEN I AM DETOXING?
You should not stop taking any prescribed medication during a detox program. There are, however, special times to take the medication so it won't be absorbed by the cleansing drinks that we give to you as part of the detox program.
CAN I DETOX IF I AM TAKING ANTI DEPRESSANTS?
We strongly recommend that you follow our Signature Raw Cleanse Program if you are taking anti-depressants. We would never recommend that you stop taking any medication during a detox program, especially anti-depressants. There are however special times to take the medication so it will not be absorbed by the cleansing drinks that we give to you. The detox process can be emotionally as well as physically demanding and it is good not to suppress those emotions but to use the additional therapists on offer to deal with any underlying issues. Please do be aware that although we do have our Detox Specialists around during the day, the program does not include 24hr supervision or patient counselling

CAN I FAST/DETOXIFY IF I HAVE DIABETES?
Type 1 Diabetes is a contraindication for our Original Full Fast and Alternative Juice Cleanse Programs. The Full “Fast” and Juice Cleanse are not recommended as they can be potentially very dangerous for insulin dependent diabetes. We do, however, offer to do the Signature Raw Cleanse program isntead at Atsumi which is not actually a fast but involves eating healthy raw foods and green smoothies, combined with bowel cleansing products (pysillium husk combined with bentonite clay), daily activities, massage and colonics. If you chose to go ahead with this program then I would strongly recommend getting clearance from your GP and closely monitoring your blood sugar levels throughout your stay.
We would also recommend following our Raw Cleanse Program if you have Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can be 100% cured through a good diet (like the Raw Cleanse that we offer at Atsumi), moderate exercise, sleep and supplements like coconut oil, cinnamon and magnesium.
