At the Sanctuary, we harness the power of Ayurvedic healing modalities to restore harmony and balance to the mind, body, and spirit. A juice cleanse is one of the most transformative healing modalities we cultivate at the Sanctuary. Amongst our fasting programmes, a juice cleanse is an excellent way to enhance your journey.
The history of fasting stretches back thousands of years, with all the highest spiritual and religious traditions using fasting to cleanse, purify, or reach closer proximity to the divine. Presently, various forms of fasting, particularly juice cleansing, have shown to be effective in fostering symptoms of long covid, assisting in weight loss, ridding the body of toxins, and much more.
What is a juice cleanse?
A juice cleanse is done by grinding, pressing, extracting, and consuming juice from plants for healing. By combining juices and drinking plant elixirs, the natural properties of these plants rid our bodies of toxins and restore vitality. Juice cleansing can be traced back over 5500 years as a ritual used for bodily detoxification and spiritual preparation.
At the Sanctuary, we have cultivated a programme that honours nature and our ancestors, encouraging your body to synchronize to these magnetic vibrations. The programme is based on the Sanskrit term “Swarasa” or, in the common language, Ayurvedic juicing. We expose our bodies to an incredibly healing field by working with the intelligence that lives within the natural world.
