Sura Detox Retreats :: Why we do this


Information. Understanding. Knowledge. Empowerment. Choice.

From deliberate choices comes health

DANGER : Reading these articles may seriously improve your health. 

The why's of what we do

A Sura Detox is about much more than just food and nutrition. Why do we make the choices that we do ? Why do we lead lives that have stress, exploitation and unconsciousness built-in by design ? Over the years we have built up a library of information and articles about food, nutrition, why we lead the lives that we do, and some pointers and guidance if you want to make changes. Our aim is to support you in making conscious choices about how you lead you life.

What those choices are is up to you. We have no interest in coercing you to adopt our views. You don't need to become a vegan or vegetarian, you won't become a 'better' person if you meditate every day or run a weekly marathon. What we love is to stimulate your interest in yourself; re-awakening your curiosity and enthusiasm to learn and to explore. 

So peruse and explore at you leisure.

Why Detox? 

These days the word detox is used to sell anything from seaweed baths to fragrant tea. It's a term that has become very diluted and stretched, so how are you supposed to know what you’re getting for your money? 

Biologically, the word detox is associated with the liver, immune system and eliminative channels of the body. Fasting is the most effective and ancient means of switching on the bodies natural capacity to detox.  Something amazing happens when we reduce our food intake. Something wonderful and enlightening. Something that can happen at no other time, precisely because we are full. All the systems within us that digest and process food slow down and stop, and we start to slow down too.

Despite scientific leaps forward in understanding the complexities of digestion, all in the know admit, we are barely scratching the surface. When we had isolated the first 10 nutrients - vitamins and minerals, we postulated that there would be around 100 to the whole picture. Now that we can number nutrients in their thousands, we are assessing the millions more to find.

For digestion is indeed a complex business, involving not only the secretions of the body, and utilising the inherent chemistry of the cells we are eating, but also the processes of the millions of microbes that populate the gut. Poking around in the dark, our sciences uncover ever greater co-evolutions, and more intimate relationships and dependencies between the forces at work, and prove, ever more clearly how this dance of influences remains far beyond our comprehension.

Much like the caterpillar that regresses to soup inside the chrysalis, food goes in, melts into its constituents, and somehow, miraculously rebuilds into the butterfly of the human form.

Of course, there are tried and tested methods for making this happen smoothly, and there are situations that are not conducive to it, so even without understanding the intricacies, we can see ways that have worked for millions of years, and how quickly they have changed in modern times - the symptoms are everywhere.
