TRIED: HEALTH REPUBLIC

With our whirlwind modern lifestyles, many of makes sacrifices in our wellbeing to keep up. Not getting enough rest, suffering from stress, consuming a poor diet, and slacking on exercise almost go hand-in-hand with juggling work and home life. The human body can be extremely resilient and adaptable but it can only be pushed so far before problems arise.

Naturally the best solution is to adapt a healthier lifestyle and treat your body as the temple that it is. Let’s be honest, there is a strong culture (and maybe a bit of human nature) tending towards the “binge and purge” lifestyle. It’s easy to binge and neglect your body, but what to do when it’s time to purge?

Detoxes have exploded in popularity in recent years as a way to quickly purge your body of toxins and waste products, recover from some of the damage it’s been subjected to, and help regain its natural balance. Detoxes are based on the premise that waste products which aren’t naturally expelled from our bodies and can’t be broken down accumulate in our organs. Detox programmes utilise various methods designed to remove these toxins.

Situated on beautiful Lamai Beach in Koh Samui, the Beach Republic as recently introduced Health Republic Wellness Center and Spa. Just next door to their long-running beach club, Health Republic is comprised of their own piece of serene beach, a beachfront massage sala, a huge open air yoga and meditation sala, indoor/outdoor café, juice shack, modern colema facilities, herbal steam rooms, and outdoor showers.

Health Republic offers a full menu of wellbeing options from 2-3 day wellness programmes as well as comprehensive detox programmes from 1-9 days. Depending on duration, the wellness programmes aim to boost overall physical and mental wellbeing using meditation and yoga, cold pressed juices and fruit, massage and herbal steams, colemas, and healthy meal options.

Detox programmes begin with expert instruction to prepare you for what to expect and how to proceed through the steps of the detox. During the detox your meals are replaced with specially formulated detox drinks, nutritious broths, and herbal supplements that help break up and mobilise toxins, especially in the intestines. Daily yoga classes and therapeutic massages help relax the body and mind while relieving stress.

A vital part of Health Republic’s detox programmes are the twice-daily colemas. Colemas are similar to an enema but introduce more water into the coon in order to provide a more thorough cleanse.

It’s very important to carefully and properly transition your body back to a normal diet at the end of your detox. Your detox guide will provide you with specially formulated drinks, probiotic capsules, and specific light foods to break your fast.

Embarking on a detox can be a bit of a challenge to abstain from your norms and vices. With Health Republic’s beachfront location and spectacular facilities on a paradise island combined with supportive staff, it’s less of a challenge and more of a pleasure.
