I provide comfortable studio apartments, that can be for 2 friends to share or for your own private use.

This is a Home Stay break with a space where you can relax in your own private studio, recoup and cocoon yourself and re emerge fully replenished and nourished and with more energy than you’ve felt in a long time.

My passion is to help you to feel relaxed and transform your knowledge about your body. To go beyond the detox and know how to put back after the detox period. To nurture yourself fully.

When did you last give yourself Time Out to re discover yourself ? Discover what you liked and what your body needed most.

This week is a huge step away from the busy whirlwind world we all live in, and a time to recoup and cocoon ourselves. Nourish our skin, minds and hearts, and walk away gently re assured that we know more of what we want out of life and how to give it to ourself’s.

A detox is a period of physical and mental withdrawal during which we, an organism ( us, our body ) can return to homeostasis, after long-term use of an addictive substance or an overwhelming lifestyle.


The process of re-balancing your body begins with cleansing your digestion system and resting your body for a period of time known as a Fast. A minimum of 3 days will re set your entire body, and stop all physical cravings.  Then comes the building up your body with essential and pure nutrition, and not forgetting your positive mental attitude towards your body. Eating alkalizing foods, hydrating properly (drinking pure still mineral water ) and re balancing the bacteria inside your intestines with probiotics and fermented foods. All will go a long long way to help you feel lighter and brighter than you have in decades.

I also concentrate and am passionate about the emotional reasons we use food when we are in a mood and what we reach for. Everybody has a primary distraction and for most of us that’s food. I help you unravel the need and reduce the need and cravings.

How and why do I lose weight when I detox?

We may know already that we are surrounded by toxins in many of the products we regularly use in our daily routine. Many are hidden in our foods and they are abundant in every day household and office products.

Our body in its effort to protect us form these toxins, stores these toxins ‘safely out of the way’ in FAT cells.

Many of the toxins we are discovering are easily held in fats, suspended away from the blood flow and hormonal loops that they would play havoc with.

It is critical during a detox period to flood your body with Ph balanced vegetable and fruit juices which are full of enzymes and electrolytes so that the body can release these excess toxins and acids back into the blood and colon so that the cells can open up with the help of as the two main elimination organs to remove these toxins once and for all.

A human storage system, just like we store rubbish ready for the day when we can safely remove it.

Detoxing reverses this process. The fat cells release the stored toxins, and you lose weight and enhance your digestion and immune system in the process!

With our Home Detox Box you can detox your whole body with resting the digestion system with a three day fast and colon cleansing. Your body converts stored fat into energy, resulting in weight loss. During the week toxins are released from fat cells, meaning more weight loss.

After your detox program, While you remain on a reduced calorie whole and Raw food diet, including juices and smoothies you can expect to continue losing weight.

Most Detoxers lose between 6-14lbs during the week, and some continue shedding pounds… losing up to 3 stone more in the months following the Detox and colon cleanse!!

Where do the toxins come from?

Some toxins are created within as a natural result of our metabolic process of living, others are produced in our guts and others come in from the outside.

Are any of these familiar?

Lifestyle toxicity due to: Chronic stress, Poor food and drink choices, Imbalance life-work-rest, Excessive Alcohol consumption, Prescribed and over the counter medication residue.

Personal care product toxicity from: Creams, Cosmetics, Perfume, Deodorants, Shampoo, Nail varnish etc. Many contain carcinogens, parabens and other toxic ingredients.

Household products– Carpet cleaners, Window and surface cleaners, Washing powder, Dish liquid, Room Sprays, Wall Paint etc.
