    So… Why Detox?

    Despite the wonders of modern medicine, the state of human health throughout the world today continues to erode at an alarming rate. Debilitating diseases and chronic degenerative conditions have today become increasingly common in the young and mainstream adult sectors of the population.Chronic pain and fatigue, indigestion and insomnia, hypertension and heart failure, and all sorts of other maladies are now par for the course in the lives of men and women all over the world, degrading the quality of their lives and causing untold misery.



    Of all the excretory organs, the colon is the most abused and overloaded these days. Due to a lack of fibre in the diet, a dependency on processed foods, little, if any exercise and high stress levels, the average Westerner today carries about 5 – 6 kg of dense, rubbery mucoid material (a thick toxic sludge) imbedded in their bowels! This festering waste can lead to the on-set of disease and increases your risk of developing collateral cancer (the No.2 cancer killer!)
    During our detox program you will get the opportunity to ‘dredge this drain’ by taking our Colon Detox supplement and performing daily self-administered colonic irrigation. The Colon Detox supplement contains psyllium husk, bentonite clay and flaxseeds which act like a fibrous bolus, sweeping through your bowel, loosening and helping you to eliminate mounds of impacted waste during your daily colonic irrigation. In addition to cleaning the colon, the colonic irrigation will trigger a strong detox response in the liver and throughout your body. The sheer volume and incredible foul appearance of putrid mucoid waste that comes tumbling out (even after days of not eating) is just incredible!
    Until you do this, regardless of how well you cleanse your blood and tissues by other means, the sludge in your bowels will continuously seep toxins right back into your bloodstream!

    Flushing out Acids:

    The first and foremost strategy in our detox program is to flush acid residues out of the blood, lymph, tissues and organs. Almost all forms of internal toxicity cause a state of acidosis in the body which:

  • suppresses our immune response
  • interferes with our normal metabolism
  • inhibits digestion and assimilation
  • promotes fungal and bacterial infections and;
  • causes all sorts of other biological malfunctions and ill health.


    Your liver performs over 500 functions for your body. One of its most important roles is to filter toxic wastes and poisons from your blood stream. If your blood is constantly being polluted with excess acid residues from poor eating habits, alcohol, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs, stress hormones and other acid-forming factors, it eventually gets overloaded and becomes deeply congested with toxic debris. This in turn affects your liver function and causes excess wastes then to get deposited in the joints and other tissues, causing weight gain, arthritis, tissue toxicity and disease.
    Many people try to attack their symptoms, especially weight gain, with fad diets, high impact aerobics, stomach stapling and toxic drugs (such as appetite suppressants, laxatives and diuretics) but what they have failed to consider, is that the underlying cause may be LIVER



    The state of your liver has a huge bearing upon how well you live, how long you will live and how you will look and feel!
    Globally, one in every ten persons suffers with some type of liver, bile duct or gall bladder disease. Liver cancer is one of the most common cancers in men and has a poor outlook.
    During our Detox Program, you have the opportunity to support and improve your liver function by:

  • taking liver cleansing herbs
  • Doing a Liver Flush
  • This will increase the ability of your liver to filter your blood, burn fat and pump fat and toxins out of the body through bile (a yellowy green coloured liquid) which is produced to break down fats and fat soluble toxins (these may otherwise become trapped in your fatty tissues leading to weight gain and cellulite). Furthermore, you will dramatically reduce your risk of gallbladder disease / surgery!

    Kidneys & Bladder

    The kidneys help filter acid wastes from the bloodstream, processing approximately 1 litre of blood per minute. Excessive acid wastes in the blood due to poor diet, pharmaceutical and recreational drugs along with other lifestyle factors can severely corrode the delicate tissues in which blood filters through the kidneys. It can also cause the formation of kidney stones and inflammation of the bladder and urinary tract. By drinking our herbal kidney teas, they will facilitate the rapid excretion of toxic wastes and protect your kidneys from damage.



    Skin is the largest organ of the body and an enormous amount of toxic waste passes through the skin, especially in hot weather, when the pores remain open day and night. During a detox, toxic residues become very concentrated in perspiration and they can cause damage to the skin as they pass through for excretion. Strong, foul body odour and clammy sweat may manifest during your Detox Program. An effective method of facilitating skin detoxification is Thai Herbal Steam baths which draw toxins out through the skin whilst also soothing and hydrating the skin tissue with healing herbal essences. Skin allergies and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis are dramatically improved during the cleansing process.


    The lungs excrete carbon dioxide and other volatile gaseous wastes from the blood while absorbing oxygen, negative ions and other elements from the air and transferring them into the bloodstream. When the blood is highly toxic, such as during a detox program, its capacity to carry oxygen is reduced. By learning deep breathing exercises during our program, you will properly oxygenate your blood and tissues, thereby helping to eliminate acidosis while also facilitating rapid excretion of carbon dioxide, mucous and other gaseous wastes from your lungs.

    So what’s the problem here?

    The problem is toxicity, the same sort of toxicity that attracts flies to filth, kills fish in rivers and lays waste to the environment, except in this case we’re talking about the toxic wastes that pollutes the blood and tissues of the human body!

    Our bodies are being polluted by our food and drink, the air we breathe, what we put on our skin; the use of drugs (medicinal and recreational) and even by the way we think! Although the human body is designed to eliminate toxins, it can quickly become clogged up due to the sheer load it is being bombarded with! In an attempt to protect itself the body tries to store these toxins in the cells and joints of the body and this ultimately reduces the body’s ability to function properly and to heal itself.

    At Chiang Mai Detox, we will take you through a comprehensive detox program which will give your body the chance to completely cleanse and rebalance itself. Besides purging the blood and tissues of their toxic residues, the detox program will cleanse and rejuvenate your entire excretory system:

    Clearing clogged bowels and congested lungs, cleaning dirty lymph and blemished skin and flushing out dirty kidneys and bladder.
