As we all emerge from the solitary world of Covid, we can finally look forward to socializing and exploring new places. Perhaps you’ve done your best to get exercise during this time but still have gained some unwanted pounds or have gotten into some unhealthy habits that leave you feeling sluggish. With our 5 Day Detox, you can Clean out, Re-set, feel more energized and get back in shape.

As AmaTierra’s resident nutritionist/herbalist, I’m delighted to guide you through a 5 day detox where you can either come to AmaTierra or do it at home, complete with yoga classes, informative sessions, recipes and supplements to help your body detox gently and naturally. I’ve been leading people in Detox Programs for many years here, and I customize it just for you, because no two bodies are alike!

Generally, during these five days (or extend to seven if you wish) you will be eating fresh fruits and vegetables, soups and juices, and supporting your body with herbal teas and supplements which cleanse the whole body: digestive tract, liver, kidneys, skin and blood. For the home detoxers, we provide detailed menus and a shopping list, as well as guidance for the supplements and herbs.

If you’re joining the detox on-site here in Costa Rica you will likely be eating fruits and plant-based protein smoothies for breakfast that have plenty of fiber (flax, psyllium husk and chia seeds, and fresh greens) and ginger, tumeric and lemons, grown right here on our farm. Your detox is a collaboration between you and our nutritionist/herbalist, and may include a day or two of just liquids, but other meals are usually vegetable-based soups, steamed veggies and salads. A 4 pm snack might be a handful of nuts, some raw vegetables or a juice. We combine a variety of herbs, some grown at AmaTierra, into a tea that you drink a few times per day. There is a lot of individual attention given to ensuring that each guest has the experience and outcome that is best for YOUR body. I hope to see you soon for the virtual or in-person detox program!!! –Jill Ruttenberg, Registered Herbalist, AHG

“AmaTierra’s Detox at Home program was a powerful blend of cleansing techniques, guided meditation, one-on-one sessions and yoga classes that, when combined, gave me a much needed cleanse for my body, and clarity in my mind.  Jill is a wonderful source of information, easily delivered and relevant to each of us.  I made new friends and even lost a few pounds!”   –Ann B.  June 2020
