Detoxing at Ananda Yoga & Detox Center in Koh Phangan, Thailand is the best gift you can give your body, mind and spirit! Over time our bodies become overloaded with toxins. These toxins can accumulate through what we eat and drink, the air we breathe, what we put on our skin or even by the way we think! Although the human body is designed to eliminate toxins, it can quickly become clogged up and store harmful waste in the cells and joints. Ultimately this reduces the body’s ability to function properly and to heal itself.
Over the past 12 years Ananda Yoga & Detox Center has performed over 11,000 detoxes and has perfected a system combining Restricted Liquid Fasting, Colemas (“Colon Hydrotherapy”), Natural Western and Ayurvedic Herb Formulas, Probiotics, Thai Massage and Herbal Steam Sauna. People come from around the world to Koh Phangan, Thailand to experience our holistic approach. We have proven how internal cleansing heals the body, mind and spirit!

Ananda's Time-Tested System
Our Detoxification and Cleansing Fast programs utilize a time-proven system to rid the body of toxins and other unwanted waste.
Click on each element below to learn more.
Fasting is the heart of the cleanse and the fastest most effective way of removing toxic materials from the body. While abstaining from food the body systematically cleanses itself of everything except vital tissues thus eliminating harmful impurities. Our restricted liquid fasting process include vegetable broth, fresh juice and coconut water.
The initial days of the fast are usually the toughest, but this is also when the most waste floods the bloodstream and begins to flush out through the pores of your skin, mouth, urine and excrement.
Throughout the fast the body will hold on to essential vitamins and minerals while removing toxins, fat, mucus, diseased cells and old tissues. This process maximizes the efficiency of each cell by activating the body’s self healing mechanisms. Not only does fasting rejuvenate the body, but it refreshes the mind, clearing away stress and brain fog. During the fast you may experience heightened emotions as suppressed feelings surface, but with time you’ll slowly purify your mind of this mental clutter and by the end of your cleanse you’ll find your thoughts calm, clear and collected.
Every detox program at Ananda includes a daily Colema with an optional second session. A Colema is a self-administered colon hydrotherapy that involves a special kind of enema. It is very thorough in cleansing the colon (large intestine) and removing internal impurities in a powerful yet safe way.
At Ananda we only use Colema Boards® of California imported from the USA because they are the best and most hygienic equipment the market. We provide a private Colon Hydrotherapy room which our staff prepares and cleans before and after each session.
What is the difference between a Colema, Colonic Irrigation and an Enema?
Colonic Irrigation procedures utilize a machine to pump water into the colon. They are performed in clinics and require supervision from a trained therapist.
An Enema at best flushes out the rectum, but does not reach the depths of the colon.
A colema circulates more water than an enema and reaches all portions of the colon. The water is circulated by gravity, not a machine, and is therefore generally more effective, comfortable and safe.
Our bodies are full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are the helpful bacteria that keep your gut healthy and strong. Probiotic Capsules are taken daily to reintroduce good bacteria into your system. Much of our healthy bacteria is depleted by years of poor eating and lifestyle habits. Proper bacteria is essential for overall health and well-being, including a strong immune system, complete digestion, nutrient absorption, and the formation of B vitamins and various amino acids. Our Probiotic Capsule formula is unique in that it can effectively establish itself in the bowels while supporting a balanced pH environment and a properly functioning digestive tract.
Ananda’s two herb formulas are the heart of the Detox Program. They work together to help soften and break up mucoid plaque and to remove toxic waste from the alimentary canal, organs and cells. We take extra care to source only the highest quality detox herbs in our classic formulas.
- The first formula is designed to support the body’s elimination of accumulated toxins. It helps to remove the layers of old stagnant waste (mucoid plaque) that often lines the colon walls, as well as dissolving deep seated toxins from the tissues.
- The second formula is a gentle herbal blend designed to thoroughly cleanse the alimentary canal, liver, organs and deep cell tissues. It helps strengthen the body with essential nutrients and supports a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Ananda’s “Detox Shake” is a key element to assist in cleansing the body by absorbing toxins and removing them in a gentle manner. Our shakes combine two essential cleansing ingredients.
- Psyllium Husk: This fibrous bulking agent sweeps toxic buildup out of the intestines. We use only high quality organic Psyllium Husk.
- Hydrated Bentonite: This is a type of clay which has long been used for both internal and external detoxification. Because of its highly absorptive properties, Hydrated Bentonite is ideal for drawing out the toxins that the Psyllium then eliminates from the body. We use one of the best quality bentonite products found in the world, which is made in Thailand.
Traditional Thai herbal steam therapy is a very efficient method of ridding the body of toxins through the skin and lungs. We place fresh Thai herbs daily to ensure maximum benefits for your sauna experience. Hot steam opens the pores and the aromatic herbs draw toxins out with sweat. The herbs are absorbed into the bloodstream, circulating through the body’s cells and cleansing, relaxing and rejuvenating the body from the inside out.
Herbal steam saunas stimulate the immune system and are excellent for the skin, lungs, blood circulation, sore muscles and relaxation.
Our professional Thai Masseuse will help you relax and recharge with a Thai Massage every fasting day! Thai Massage techniques were created thousands of years ago. You will move into specific positions designed to stretch the body to loosen joints. Muscle compression is also integrated to assist blood circulation. The Massages are beneficial for pain relief and have also been shown to increase serotonin levels (the hormone that reduces stress and makes us feel happy) and decrease cortisol (the stress hormone).
