The 21 Day Raw Vegan Program
Raw Vegan Program
Did you know that your body is exposed to 2,100,000 toxins every day? They come from contaminated sources like air, water, foods, drinks, prescription medications, heavy metals, electromagnetic radiation, negative emotions, etc. Think about how many of these toxins you’re exposed to on a daily basis.
Many of these toxins build up in your body and wreak havoc until they are removed. Your body’s organs like the Liver, is constantly pulling resources together to combat these accumulating toxins. And this constant drain on your body’s valuable resources can leave you weak and exposed to all the degenerative diseases, these toxins can cause.
Our Program focuses on helping your body release the toxins it takes in from your day-to-day interactions with the environment. You will only eat raw alkaline forming whole foods that are designed to support your body’s natural processes of detoxification and cleansing.
Have you been looking for a way to detoxify your general body, increase your energy, & stay healthy? Then you’re in the right place. At AfroWellness, we designed the 21 day raw vegan detox program, specifically for those who need help when it comes to detoxification
Since most foods we eat today are nutrient deficient, it means we must eat twice or thrice the amount of foods our ancestors used to consume in order to get the nutrients needed by our bodies, all the undigested remnants of such foods need to be eliminated, else, it either ferments or putrefies in the body, this causes the accumulation of toxins to be severe.

Understanding big tummy syndrome;
Do you come from a culture that holds the belief that a big tummy is a sign of wealth. We have bad news for you, a big tummy is not a sign of wealth. Its a sign of kilograms of fermenting stool harboring unproductive fungus, yeast, mold, bacteria, rotting matter or putrefying fats and proteins stuck to the lining of the intestinal walls.
This creates perfect conditions for all sorts of illnesses, like Diabetes, High blood pressure, Arthritis, cancer etc. In Medieval times in Europe, rotten teeth were a sign of wealth because only the rich people could afford sugar.

Every morning you will have your blood pressure checked by one of our specialized consultants. Although fasting usually will drastically reduce high blood pressure, we never recommend that anybody stop taking their medication for this condition. Cleansing has also been known to indirectly help with issues regarding high cholesterol as the whole process helps to clean the blood and liver, thereby improving the body’s ability to digest and break down fats and lipids.
We have experienced and trained staff on hand to help with any questions or concerns you may have regarding these issues as well as extra services to help you plan an individual exercise and dietary routine to bring about greater balance, health and vitality to your life, should you feel a more in-depth analysis is necessary.

However, there are special times to take the medication so it won’t be absorbed by the cleansing drinks that we give to you during your wellness program.
Can I fast if I’m menstruating? It is no problem to participate in a cleansing program if you are menstruating and any extreme change in your diet can affect your menstrual cycle so don’t worry if your period is irregular or slightly heavier than usual.
Can I detox if I’m skinny? You can still cleanse if you are skinny as long as you are not currently suffering with an eating disorder or are suffering with malnutrition or certain deficiencies. The main goal of cleansing is detoxification and removal of impacted waste within the colon. We have many skinny, non-overweight people visiting us for fasting and generally they fair just as well as other people. If you are drastically underweight, then you may choose to participate in one of our healthy nutrition programs.

Do you do anything special for the guests’ special days (wedding anniversary, birthdays etc.)? We offer 1 spa massage as a gift.
What are the do’s and don’ts before coming? What should I eat & drink? For best results, before joining our detox program follow the Pre-Detox Program be sent after you confirm you booking for two weeks. This will both alkalize and prepare your body for a deeper cleansing. If you do not have enough time, you should start a minimum of 3 days before the detox program. For optimum results in the pre-cleansing phase, eat no meat, dairy products, salt, sugar or foods with added sugar.
Stop the intake of coffee, tea, alcohol and all other drinks with caffeine. You can drink all sorts of herbal teas instead. Drink water as often as possible, but not with a meal. Water is a critical addition to the cleansing process. It is best to drink at least 6% of your body weight (i.e. 70 kg body weight, drink 4.2 liters of water).
Cut off caffeine and alcohol, eat as many raw fruits and vegetables as your body can handle.
Why do I need to Pre-Cleanse? Pre-cleansing prepares your body for the deep cleansing you will experience on the full fast. On a pre-fast, your body will move from an acidic state towards the alkalinity needed for cleansing. You’ll also increase your storage of electrolytes, giving your body the strength needed for cleansing. Fasting without properly preparing your body can result in rapid toxin elimination which, in turn, can result in some discomfort including headaches, fatigue, vomiting, diarrhea and dizziness. You’ll experience a more enjoyable cleanse overall by pre-fasting.
I did not do a pre-detox. Can I still start my detox? The pre-detox is significant in terms of easing the transition to a detox program. If you start your detox without doing the pre-detox before hand, you might feel the “detox symptoms” stronger. These symptoms are also called as the “healing symptoms” which are general reactions that the body can experience in the first couple of days of the detox such as headaches, dizziness, feeling nauseous, having strange dreams etc. If you arrive to the center without doing the pre-detox, we can apply the green detox programs to help you to do your pre-detox here.
What should I bring with me? There is nothing specific you need to bring, just comfortable clothing for yoga, meditation and exercise classes etc. Some sports shoes (trainers) for walking, sun cream, bikini and a good book for when you are chilling out on the beach. Sportswear and swimsuit would be sufficient to wear during your program. (For the daily walks, yoga classes, use of the fitness room, daily pool/sea/infrared sauna/steam room usages etc.) For the wet season it is suggested to bring a rain coat.

What is the difference between The AfroWellness center and The Beach recreational center? Our Recreational Beach center is only 5 minutes away from the main building by walking and it is located by the lake side. It has a private beach and 14 boutique rooms. You can accommodate and have your nutrients/juices/meals and have massage in the Beach building. The activities such as yoga classes, infrared sauna, steam room, therapies etc. will take place at our main center. In addition, our Beach facility also offers half-board vegan nutrition service.
