Immune boosting through detoxing at Santani Wellness Resort and Spa, Sri Lanka

As the world is coming to terms with one of the most devastating pandemics in recent history, and trying to understand how we can prevent and fight against present day healthcare issues, the need for a preventative healthcare paradigm is obvious. The “after the fact” curative healthcare paradigm we have today does not provide for the current needs of humanity, and can be almost useless when facing a pandemic like the Corona Virus.

Santani Wellness Resort and Spa has pioneered such a preventative protocol that revolves around detoxing and anti-aging as the prime preventative care paradigm. With the recent onset of Corona Virus and the need to boost the immune system as the only viable treatment protocol, the detoxing program at Santani has become a leading tool that naturally enhances one’s immune system.

What is detoxing?

In short, detoxing is “A process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances”. Unhealthy eating habits, a lack of exercise, emotional imbalance, and inadequate sleep are the primary reasons for a variety of your body’s issues – including your immune system. In addition, as adults, with the onset of aging, our systems lose their efficacy. This results in some of the metabolic waste that normally gets expelled out of the body through our excretory systems, remaining in the body. When this occurs, the immune system starts reacting on an ongoing basis to fight against these elements that should not be in the body. This battle inevitably weakens the immune system, making it hard for the system to fight against external/alien threats; such as the Corona Virus.

Unlike most body detoxes that focus solely on gut cleansing and the digestive system, at Santani, the immune boosting package focuses on the whole body¾especially on the five systems that act as the excretory system of the body. The metabolic waste that remained in the body is flushed out through this detoxing program, providing the immune system with some much needed rest and time to rejuvenate as well as releasing the immune system to freely fight external threats such as viruses.

What to expect from the Santani Immune boosting Detox?

While our primary goal is to boost your immune system, the detox program at Santani does not fail to pamper you and make you feel individually highlighted as we do so. With the Corona epidemic, Santani has gone further and enhanced this natural boosting of the immune system by introducing a “Immune Boosting Detox” that combines the detox with immune boosting diet and Ayurveda supplements. As this program lasts for a minimum of 7 days (and can go up to 21 days), here’s what you can expect from it:

  • A welcome consultation to ensure you get the best out of the program
  • A personalized diet plan focused on cleansing and boosting immunity
  • Group yoga sessions
  • Personalized Ayurvedic and western cleansing
  • Detoxifying spa treatments
  • Professionally prescribed Ayurvedic treatments
  • Healthy living guidance and “after care”
Ayurvedic detox and Western detoxes

Both Ayurvedic and Western detoxes work marvelously well for boosting your immune system. We believe they both have their unique advantages, hence the decision of adding both of these into our immune boosting detox program came almost naturally. While the Ayurvedic and Western detoxes can be vastly contrasting in some areas (for example, Ayurvedic detoxes focuses on what you eat, while Western detoxes focuses on when you eat), it’s also a fact that they often tend to complement each other in their contrast. Apart from the obvious boost to the immune system, such detoxes also have other life changing results, such as:

  • A general feeling of vibrancy and wellbeing
  • Feeling more energized
  • Resetting your sleep pattern
  • Having clearer skin

Vickum Nawagamuwage, the founder of Santani said, “We have had great results with the detoxing program with clear results shown through improvements in our guests’ blood reports”. He added, “it is really interesting, as we have protocols that were developed 5000 years ago that is working for modern day issues and we are glad that we are contributing even at a minute level to boost our guests’ immune systems and hopefully allow them to resist external health risks such as the Corona virus”.

Apart from a healthier immune system, you will also be taking home plenty of knowledge that will aid you in keeping not only your immune system strong in the years to come, but also on how to take care of your physical and mental health in general.
