Measure and Record
At the beginning and the end of your Milestone Detox we will record your weight and measurements and do a pH test. By mindfully nutrifying your body and soul, you will detoxify your system to look and feel great.
Bad stress and processed foods contribute to a pH imbalance in your body. Natural, raw and organic foods bring your system into optimum balance. We will teach you how to keep your pH levels healthy.
Juice, Aloe, Broth, Teas and Supplements
We prepare fresh, organic juices made from locally sourced organic vegetables and fruit using a slow cold press process that retains the natural enzyme life and vitality of the ingredients. Daily supplements include aloe, vitamins, digestive enzymes, probiotics and herbal laxatives. We also provide neutral-tasting bentonite clay and psyllium husk shakes to help cleanse the body as well as to help fill the tummy and avoid hunger pains! Before bed we will serve you some yummy vegetable broth which is a great way to end each day.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Though lymph vessels are found throughout the body, most of them–about 70 percent–are located just below the skin. These fragile vessels work to pick up fluids between the cell spaces when gentle pressure is applied to them from increased fluid build-up, muscle contractions, or the pressure of a therapist’s hands. By using very light pressures in a rhythmic, circular motion, our massage therapist can stimulate your lymph system to work more efficiently and help it move the lymph fluids back to the heart. This is a very relaxing treatment you are sure to enjoy.

Infrared heat penetrates deep into your tissues meaning it’s 600% more effective than a steam sauna for detoxification, the toxin content in traditional saunas is 3% with our full spectrum infrared sauna the toxin content is 18-20%.

Grounding or Earthing
The practice of earthing basically involves coupling your body to the Earth’s surface energy by walking, sitting or sleeping outside in direct contact with the Earth or using a device, such as a grounding mat or bed sheet that creates the same response while indoors. When in direct contact with the Earth, your body becomes suffused with negative charged free electrons and equalises to the same electric energy level as the earth.
This thermographic image was taken of a woman who complained of stiffness and chronic pain. The first picture was taken before earthing, and the second, after just 30 minutes of earthing. The possibility of grounding or earthing resolving inflammation is exciting, as many chronic diseases cause and stem from inflammation in the body. Either way there is nothing to lose by trying earthing, and the book 'Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever' is filled with first hand stories of those who have benefited, as well as research and information from doctors, a cardiologist and an electrical engineer.
Bouncing benefits the lymphatic system, commonly summarised as the “garbage disposal of the body,” relies completely on our conscious movement. Unlike the cardiovascular system with the heart automatically pumping fluid, the lymph system relies on our body movements as a pump. This is why rebounding is so great – every cell is compressed, released and activated with each bounce.
The benefits of rebounding include:
- Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function
- Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass
- Helps improve digestion
- More than twice as effective as running without the extra stress on the ankles and knees
- Increases endurance on a cellular level by stimulating mitochondrial production (these are responsible for cell energy)
- Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy
- Rebounding in a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body
- Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
“Let Thy Food Be Thy Medicine, And Thy Medicine Be Thy Food.” – Hippocrates That is the message from the founding father of modern medicine echoed in this brave new documentary film brought to you by Producer-Directors James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. ‘Food Matters’ is a hard hitting, fast paced look at our current state of health. Despite the billions of dollars of funding and research into new so-called cures we continue to suffer from a raft of chronic ills and every day maladies. Patching up an over-toxic and over-indulgent population with a host of toxic therapies and nutrient sparse foods is definitely not helping the situation. In a personal quest of discovery James & Laurentine together with a film crew and the editorial and production expertise of Enzo Tedeschi have set out on an independent mission to uncover the wholesome truth.
Candlelight Stretch & Relaxation
