WHY DO I NEED TO FAST & DETOX?
INSOMNIA, ANXIETY, RELATIONSHIP DIFFICULTIES,
LOW SELF ESTEEM,
LACK OF LIFE DIRECTION, ADDICTIONS, BEING EMOTIONALLY REACTIVE, ANGRY,
GUILTY, or RESTLESS?
If you answered yes to any of these, then Fasting & Detoxing with Atsumi Healing is for you.
The main reason people come to The Atsumi Retreat Healing Center in Thailand is to “Fast & Cleanse” their system of physical & emotional toxins that accumulate from modern stressful lifestyles. We strongly recommend a minimum of 4 days for any of our fasting programs. Guests have come to Atsumi for fasts of 4 to 35 days. Most of our guests stay at least 10 days.
The process is very simple, most guests do not experience any hunger, & report an amazing sense of wellbeing. Naturally you will lose weight, usually one kilo per day for men, & half a kilo per day for women. For those with little time or who want to “dip their toes in the water,” we also have four day programs.
While fasting & detoxing you are provided with all necessary herbs, cleansers, & naturally, a lot of water. The process is very simple & during this time you are instructed & supervised by experienced detox staff. It’s important to approach your Full Fasting experience with us in an informed & dedicated manner. When we receive your enquiry we will send you pre-fasting instructions in order to prepare your body correctly for Fasting, & to maximize the results you achieve at Atsumi.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FULL FAST/JUICE CLEANSE AND YOUR RAW FOOD CLEANSE PROGRAMS?
Our full/juice fasting program is for healthy individuals. You cannot follow a full/juice fast program if you are in the high risk category (please refer to our full/juice fast contraindications).
Full fasting or Juice Fasting is for those who wish to reduce inflammation and the related diseases including, potentially, heart disease and cancer – but is not directly for weight loss though this generally happens as a side-effect. The negative of the full fast is it can negatively affect thyroid hormones and raise cortisol (stress hormone) which then affect sex hormones so a person can rebound later. We would not recommend full/juice fast for those suffering health issues like adrenal fatigue (burnout syndrome), hypothyroidism, menstrual problems, blood sugar imbalances and of course any of the health issues outlined in our contraindications list. We strongly advise females under the age of 40, even if healthy, NOT to full fast for more than 10 days
The raw diet was developed for fat loss as a low calorie liver cleansing diet. We can generally only lose 1-2 kilo of fat per week which this diet does in most cases but may not reduce the water like the full fast so that is why the scales fall faster on full fast due to water. The diet also allows training which is critical to weight loss.
