A nutitious, delicious DIET

– a nutritious, delicious DIET of alkaline food (fruits, vegetables and other light vegetarian food), freeing the digestive system from its normal burdens so the body can naturally heal itself.
– our unique SUPER HERBAL DETOX, which is superior to any leading colon cleansing herbal products. It not only absorbs toxins from the digestive system, but also ultimately from the entire body. It is vital for getting a new start in your life.
– an exercise program with a wide range:
a) gentle YOGA POSTURES for the glands and nerves
b) SLOW EXERCISE of walking and mild games
c) VIGOROUS EXERCISE of brisk walking & running, treadmill, swimming (at a nearby pool), aerobic dance and active games
– various individually prescribed treatments include
MUD PACK applying hygienic mud to specific areas of need, or in some cases to the whole body both absorbing toxins and attracting healing blood.
STEAMBATH to sweat out toxins, while keeping the face in fresh air (not like sauna, which compels one to breathe in toxic air).
HOT FOOTBATH also to sweat out toxins, with a particular effect on lower body and lung problems.
COLEMA (in between COLonic machine and EnEMA) internally cleansing the intestines.
SPINAL BATH to cool the spine only, our best physical treatment for releasing stress.
WARM CIDER VINEGAR BATH done only just before sleeping for those who have difficulty to sleep, enabling nerves to thoroughly relax.
SYSTEMATIC SUNBATH alternating in and out of the sun, with water or oil massage according to need, for fixed number of minutes and during a fixed interval.
HIPBATH attracting healing blood to the lower internal organs including the digestive organs and the female organs.
HOT WATER BAGS AND ICE PACKS depending on whether one needs heat for relaxation or cold for healing.
– WATER-DRINKING SYSTEM, 3 to 4 liters or more daily, to cleanse toxins.
