AM Wellness Yoga Detox is a highly effective method that enables the person to reach impressive levels of health Physically and Mentally.The system is based on a graduated diet program, based on the underlying belief that the body is its own best healer given the right conditions to do so. Sickness, in most of its forms, is seen as a detoxifying process of the body, and is being carefully monitored rather than eliminated through suppression of symptoms.  

Living Relations organises yearly Residential Detox Retreats programs where people are given the methods and practices of AM Wellness Yoga Detox, to experience for themselves the health benefits, while learning to empower themselves in taking charge of their own health.

Additionally we also provide ongoing personal Wellbeing Coaching on AM Wellness detox, as well as Classes on detox food preparations.

Benefits of Detox

The benefits are numerous and becoming the power holder of your own health is just the beginning!

In today society we are constantly exposed on a daily level, to innumerable chemicals, herbicides and pesticides, contaminating our soil, water, and air. Our FOOD is also packed with too many hidden refined sugars and unhealthy oils, highly processed, pastorised and homogenised. On top of all that we are surrounded by Electro Magnetic Frequences ( EMF) that deeply are affecting our body cells and DNA.

This Environmental Toxicity is greatly impacting the health of our Micro-biome, our Intestinal Flora and Intestinal Life, creating an endemic pathogenic Intestinal permeability, in turn giving rise to a variety of Autoimmune diseases, Neurological dysfunctions, overall Hormonal Imbalance, and a high level of Inflammatory diseases. The result is rampant Chronic Fatigue syndrome, lack of energy, gut dysbioses, Andrenal fatigue, Thyroid dysfunctions, systemic Metal Toxicity, Micronutrients deficiency, mineral depletion,  malabsorption, Allergies, Diabetes, Obesity and Neurological dysfunctions even in children.

Regular and perpetual Detoxification processes are now imperative to maintain optimal health and stamina, vitality, longevity, Brain health and Glandular balance.

We need to act to prevent sickness, because to wait to get sick is one of the most exoensive things we can do not only financially but even more so emotionally. To prevent sickness we need to understand the long-term benefits and life enhancing qualities of regular Detox, learning how to implement these preventive practices on a daily, monthly and yearly level.

We need to learn to include in our life and daily routine, detoxification practices and rejuvenating avtivities to rebuild our Micro-biome, to eliminate toxins, to destressifying, to enhance our Immune system, to cultivate positive emotions and positive thinking, to promote overall health and wellbeing.

Detoxification practices look at the Body and Mind Holistically, incorporating different pathways leading, step by step, to an ideal personalised Diet and a unique Life-style, that enhances cells regeneration and restoration of energy, maximising our full human potential.


Our friendly and well-trained AMWellness staff (coming from USA, Stanthorpe, Maleny, Adelide, and Mullumbimby especially to run this detox programs) will closely give personal supervision to the participants during their detox and health regime.

More about the AM Wellness Yoga Detox System

Learning the practices of AM Wellness Detox System will help you to become healthy, regulated, and positive, closer to your Inner Self, and to the  Higher Direction of your own Heart.

Wellness Detox Retreats held regularly during the year, are specifically designed to promote rejuvenation, vitality and longevity by practicing a Detoxifying Diet, Specific systems of Water Drinking, Alkaline Eating, as well as Glandular Balancing and the Activation of the Master Gland- The Pineal Gland.

The retreats are designed to promote balance and integration of physical, mental and spiritual bodies through an infusion of all the components of Natural Therapies, Yoga Practices, and Diet, learning how to create a daily, weekly and monthly regular care of your physical bodies, as well as emotional and mental bodies, through various Techniques, Dances,  Exercises, Laughter, and Natural Therapies.                                                        

Many Emotional diseases, hormonal or psychological imbalances are due to the fact that we are unable in a materialistic life style to nurture our higher sphere of thought, aspiration, insight, bliss, inner joy and inner peace. We get out of balance due to too many stress factors, pollutants and unhealthy life style habits.

Yoga and Meditation practices combined with very significant Dietary Changes, help to make a huge difference on our energy levels, physical health and stamina, mental concentration, increased positive emotions, balanced hormonal secretions, and an overall high level of physical and mental wellbeing.


The benefits are numerous and becoming the power holder of your own health is just the beginning!


On a physical level the Detox Retreats can help people troubled by Stress, Obesity, Blood pressure, Arthritis and Body pain, Hyper-acidity, Digestive complications, IBS chronic bloating or Candida, Hepatitis, Menstrual problems and Hormonal imbalance, Migraine, Insomnia, Constipation and Skin problems, and much more.

On a Mental level the Detox programs promotes a life style that gives great relief against Depression, Anxiety, Chronic worries, Stress, Obsessions, and Negative Emotions.

On a Mental-Emotional and Spiritual level the Retreat program helps to  understand and learn how to infuse one's life with the Universal Principles that govern the equilibrium of the whole universe, also called Dharma, promoting good fortune and all round well-being,  accelerating one's own evolutionary process with balance, joy,  harmony  and love.


Fasting, Intermittent Fasting or Graduated Fasting, and Neuro-science

It is evident what Fasting practices do to our brain and why Big Pharmaceutical companies  do not encourage research about it (see Tedx Talk given by Mark  Mattson, professor of Neuro-science at the National Institute of Aging in USA  and foremost researcher in cellular mechanisms underlying neuro-degenerative disorders).

Dietary changes have long been known to have an effect on the Brain. Fasting and Graduated Fasting in particular as thought and practiced during a Yoga Detox Retreat, helps kick- start protective measures agains all sorts of Neuro- Degenerative diseases, increasing the body ability to fight  disease by busting immunity.

In fact scientific research proves that calorie restriction helps retard age-related degenerative diseases, and helps to extend the life-span.

According to  scientific research both Fasting, Intermittent or Graduated Fasting as well as Exercises, stimulate the production of protein in the Brain that in turn stimulate the growth of neurons and the strength of synapses.

In particular, Fasting and Graduated Fasting improves the production of new nerve cells in the hippocampus and the production of ketones, an energy source of neurons, increasing the number of mitochondria in neurons as well as in nerve cells that helps increase the ability of neurons to maintain connections among each other, strengthening all brain functions, such as memory, alertness, concentration and focusing, also enhancing the ability of nerve cells to repair our DNA.

It seems that our ancestors' adaptation  to long periods of food scarcity helped human evolutionary processes, being conducive to immune system regeneration, as well protecting against immune system damage.

Detoxing through Fasting or Graduated Fasting as practiced during Yoga Wellness Detox Retreats, shifts stem cells from a dormant state to a state of self- renewal, triggering organs regeneration, as well as blood and immune system regeneration. During the graduated fasting period the body gets rid of damaged immune cells that are not needed, promoting a total system of renewal, rejuvenation and re-balancing that is energy enhancing.

The aim of our Detox Programs is to provide treatment and education that will enable you to become the Master of your own health and well-being, learning natural treatments and dietary habits that you can bring back into your daily routine at home, to be healthy forever!
