Our daily programme of group activities allows for enough flexible time in-between, and it is up to each guest to decide whether they feel like attending any activity or rather do something else.Follow this link to read more about a typical day. 


Some preparation may be beneficial before arrival. The doctor may request certain medical reports and test to ensure that underlying physiological factors can be addressed adequately, and if Hypnosis is going to form part of your course, additional preparation before arrival will have a significant impact.

This allows the medical team to address underlying health problems speedily, or re-assure guests when all is in order.Hoogland does not test thyroid function on site, as the metabolic test will indicate if there is any metabolic abnormalities. Should there be a need to test thyroid functions, an off-site laboratory will provide results within 2 days.

 


Fasting, Re-feeding Programme and Nutrition

Water Fasting

A minimum perdiod of 3 days of water fasting is recommended but longer periods, up to 40 days of uninterrupted supervised fasting, have an astounding number of health benefits. For more on the benefits of fasting, visit Dr Andre's website: The Fast Doctor or watch this informative clip: Introduction to FastingA high-fat meal is recommended as the last meal before a fast commenses.

 

Breaking the Fast

The way a fast is broken is an essential component of holistic lasting success. The nutritionist of wellbeing co-ordinator guide guests on a re-feeding programme. The lenght of this process depends on the total lenght of the fast and other considerations.A fast is typically broken with a day of papaya.  Papaya fruit is a rich source of valuable proteolytic enzymes, such as papain, chymopapain, caricain and glycyl endopeptidase, that can greatly aid in the digestive process.Herbal teas can be added to the diet early on. This is followed by additional fruit, raw salad vegies and finally a balanced diet.

 

Nutritionist

Our in-house Nutritionists have many years experience in providing guests with tailor-made, healthy eating plans and advise.Consultations with the Nutritionists assist guests in understanding each individual's unique nutritional needs. They assist in guiding guests towards better eating plans using their personal likes, dislikes and circumstances as the foundation to ensure long term success.

Motivational and Emotional Support

Mindful Eating and Meditation

Mindful Eating Training is a very effective long-term solution to maintaining a healthy relationship with food and body.Mindful eating involves paying full attention to the experience of eating and drinking, both inside and outside the body. We pay attention to the colors, smells, textures, flavors, temperatures, and even the sounds of our food. We pay attention to the experience of the body. Where in the body do we feel hunger? Where do we feel satisfaction? What does half-full feel like, or three quarters full?

 

Psychotherapy

There are many reasons guests choose fasting therapy, and most of these will involve some level of emotional impact. 

Our therapists have extensive experience in holistic health and wellbeing, they are practical, down to earth and very realistic and are able to teach a number of tools effectively for long term success.

 

Life Coaching

Life coaches aren’t counselors or therapists; they are not qualified to diagnose or treat mental health matters. They also aren’t necessarily experts–in fact, they don't claim to be. But they do aim to train clients to reach goals instead of dreaming about them.The trend of including life coaches in a holistic approach to wellbeing is increasing world-wide as it improves the lives of many. 

 

Hypnotherapy 

Hypnosis is an excellent proven tool for personal growth. With exeperienced hyphotherapists in a professional setting this treatment has many benefits with no real risk or side effects. 

Supportive Therapies

Hydro Therapy Cycle

The cyclical therapeutic use of Exercise - Massage -  Heat Treatment - Cold Therapy - Rest is an affective way of improving circulation, keeping activity levels up and getting rid of many of the fat-soluble toxins that are released as guests lose weight.Guests have unlimited access to all hydro facilities from 7am to 7pm daily, including saunas, steam rooms, steam cabinets, sitzbaths, jet pools, exercise pools, cold pools and jacuzzis. For more about the hydro cycle, read here...
