Motivation to fast can start from different levels:
> physically (weight loss and weight control, the whole system is cleansed and given an overhaul),
> emotionally (let the old go and be free for the new),
> mentally (strengthen your mind, concentration and will-power),
> spiritually (when the body and mind is not spending time and energy with digestion, they are left free to focus on spiritual matters).

In our tailor made Detox program we offer you green smoothies and juices. Our kitchen is equipped with Vitamix and Greenstar.

Important: to provide you with the very best quality of juices.
Our daily freshly prepared juices and green smoothies are made from local and organic vegetables and fruits. We buy at local farmer markets from organic farmers, supporting the farmer families of the region Algarve and Alentejo. Shortest transports.

Green smoothies are a revolution in detoxing and fasting, a movement worldwide for a healthier lifestyle. This combination of blended fruits and green leaves, discovered by Victoria Boutenko, inspired us to change our detox program and to introduce more people into this wonderful and very effective green juices. Green smoothies provide you with vitamins and minerals, proteins and fiber.
When we consume enough fiber, we take a load off of our organism by improving our elimination. Toxins often build up in the colon and fiber cleans them out. When most toxins have been removed by fiber, then the body has a greater ability to absorb nutrients, thus improving digestion.
One of the main advantages of juice is that it requires next to no digestion and can be absorbed and assimilated immediately into the bloodstream, allowing the digestive system to rest. This important quality of juice allows it to be used by people who suffer from severe nutritional deficiencies or have highly irritable digestive system.

Why fasting? - Fasting benefits
Fasting is an ancient spiritual practice, withdrawing the energy from doing and transferring it into being in the moment. Fasting takes us to our truth, allows old wounds to heal, addictions to fade, and our ego to die to be reborn into our spirit. "Fasting, or voluntarily refraining from eating, is one of Nature`s greatest healing agents, often restoring health when everything else has failed. It gives the whole digestive system a rest, allowing the body to cleanse itself thoroughly, and often removing waste matter and impurities that have acumulated over years." Quotation from the book "yoga mind & body", written by the London Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre.

It´s not easy today to live a healthy lifestyle, our body becomes toxic in so many ways: through chemically contaminated air and water, through unnatural food and drinks, cosmetics and other products, daily stress and thought patterns. We often forget the direct correlation between external pollution of the environment and internal pollution of the human body.

Give your body a complete rest and help him strengthening the immunsystem and selfhealing power. The human body is designed to eliminate toxins,  but if your body is overloaded, he needs your help.
Fasting and detoxification eliminates addicitions, unhealthy habits and thought patterns. During the fast, the palate recovers it´s natural sensitivity to simple foods. Salt, sugar, fats and processed foods become naturally unattractive. Simplify your life!
Fasting is an ideal time to be introspective and honest with oneself.
Fasting provides a framework in which change is effortless and comes from the deep self.
Maintenance of weight loss depends on lifestyle change.
Heal your body – healthy fasting!
