Costa Rica Detox at Waterfall Villas Resort and Spa

Feeling sluggish or out of sync? Struggling with skin problems, aches and pains, or digestive problems? Can't seem to lose weight? It might be time for a body detox.

Practiced for centuries by cultures around the world — including ayurvedic and Chinese medicine systems — detoxification is about resting, cleansing and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.

There are many do-it-yourself detox diets out there, but those at Waterfall Villas Resort and Spa are structured to ensure you get the most out of the experience.  And you will enjoy the lush surroundings of waterfalls, tropical breezes, and elegant accommodations. 

How does detoxification work?

Basically, detoxification means cleaning the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. However, when this system is compromised, impurities aren't properly filtered and every cell in the body is adversely affected.

A detox program can help the body's natural cleansing process by:

  • Resting the organs through fasting;
  • Stimulating the liver to drive toxins from the body;
  • Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys and skin;
  • Improving circulation of the blood; and
  • Refueling the body with healthy nutrients.
