Guests who book a stay at EA Resort Sonnhof come to us for a variety of reasons. They want to let go, relax and take their life path in a new, positive direction. You can read a personal experience report about the unique Sonnhof feeling here. Many also want to throw off old ballast and cleanse body, mind and soul from the inside out. A detox at Sonnhof is suitable for this. This is a detox cure that works wonders. Today we show you what such a detox cure looks like at our hotel.
Pre-cure: Get ready
Before your detox treatment begins, you will have a comprehensive consultation with our experts. Through pulse diagnosis, conversations and further anamnesis, we will discuss what your doshas need to be strengthened. Depending on which treatment you have chosen, your treatment plan will also be prepared. Detoxifying treatments can be, for example, an Ayurvedic foot massage, an abdominal massage, a body peeling or a forehead oil pour.
To start your purification process, your body needs preparation. In the so-called pre-cure, you are therefore prepared for the coming days and especially for the Virechana purification day. This includes, among other things, the intake of ghee. The high-quality butter fat binds toxins and waste products in your body, the so-called Ama. It is later excreted and thus cleanses the intestines from the inside out. During the preparation you may feel tired and exhausted. But that doesn't matter. You feel your body, mind and soul begin the process of removing the old, the unhealthy and the superfluous. Space is created for the good in you and your environment.
Main cure: The purification begins
One of the most important days during your detox cure is the Virechana cleansing day. This is a day of strict fasting and your body gets rid of the so-called Ama. The morning begins with a detox cocktail. Beneficial herbs and spices get your bowels moving and have a laxative effect.
On the cleansing day you can rest as much as you like. You will receive a few simple exercises from us to further stimulate the peristalsis of the intestines. You may experience circulatory problems or headaches. However, this is a sign that the cleansing is beginning to work.
To ensure that you have enough energy, we provide you with our own energy drink: the cocktail of water, lemon, salt, pepper, ginger and honey invigorates the senses, balances the doshas and helps you to keep your circulatory system stable. In general, it is important that you drink a lot.
At lunchtime, you will be served a light, soothing rice soup. In the afternoon, we pamper you with an abdominal massage to support the detoxification process. The cleansing day ends with a rice-vegetable soup in the evening. On this day you have a lot of time for yourself. Also cleanse yourself of old thoughts and patterns. Perhaps you can make a new start. Virechana is not only about physical cleansing, but also about mental cleansing of old ballast.
After-cure: Your path to the new you
Once your gut has flushed all the waste and toxins out of your body, it's time to rebuild. During the detox cure, your diet plan includes warm meals throughout. In the morning you fortify yourself with porridge and fresh fruit. This is the ideal energy booster for the day!
At lunchtime we spoil you with a 3-course menu. The dishes are exclusively light vegetarian fare. This includes seasonal vegetables, spices and high-quality cereals. After the cleansing process, your gastrointestinal tract needs gentle food that also provides energy. In the evening, our kitchen prepares a tasty soup for you.
