Why Detox & Fasting

The information on this page is designed to give you an understanding of Detoxing & Fasting For cleansing your Mind and Body. 

What Exactly Is Fasting And Detoxification?

Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing the toxins and other metabolites stemming from bio-chemical and metabolic functions within you, and removing them through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph nodes, and skin. 


Fasting, in the strict dietary sense is the complete abstinence from all substances except pure water, in an environment of total rest.


In modern-day the definition has become more complicated as we often include modified fasting in the definition. 


Modified fasting allows the addition of other items to the diet beside water, like juice or raw food. So, the terms fasting, detoxing and cleansing are used interchangeably.

Why The Need To Fast & Detoxify?

Over time toxins build up in the body as a result of the pollution in the air, the chemicals in our food and water supply, metabolic wastes/hormones from normal physiological functions, and other means.


This build up often shows itself after putting stress and strain on bodily systems causing them to under-function and thus producing many of the symptoms you may be here to help remedy i.e. heartburn/indigestion, allergies, constipation/diarrhea, headaches, low immunity, bloating, skin problems, bad breath, zero energy, inflammatory disorders, memory problems, fogginess, memory problems, sugar cravings, depression, weight gain, among others.

How Does Fasting & Detoxification Works?

When fasting, the body re-prioritizes its functioning as it no longer has to utilize the majority of its resources and energy on digestion and immunity, instead shifting this focus to amplify the repairing, restoring, rejuvenating and removal of toxins from the body, in much a similar way that when we are sick we lose the appetite for food to allow the body to pool its resources to combat the disease.


So, by speeding up the rate of normal toxin excretion or release and reducing the influx of new toxins into our bodies, it not only results in a overall reduction of total bodily toxicity, but also decreases healing time, cleanses the liver, kidneys and intestines, aids to purify your blood, aids to reduce excess weight & water, clears the brain & oxygenate the tissues, refreshes the breath and clears the eyes.

When Detoxifying What Can I Expect?

We detoxify to limit the amount of “toxins” that are entering our body or internal environment, and as we are mostly all aware and already feeling the effects of what happens when we have a build-up or expose ourselves to too many toxins, those same toxins may cause similar effects while expelled from your body during a detox. So, feelings of weakness, fatigue, flu and headache like symptoms are all common during the first 2–3 days of any detoxification program. Such symptoms do not generally last long and once they have passed, you will begin to feel a new sense of energy and vitality.

Who Should Not Fast?

Fasting is for healthy adults. Atsumi advises prospective guests suffering from any health problems or chronic conditions to consult their GP before signing up to do any one of our Detox programs.
