Detox sessions

The 277th batch for a detox cleansing session takes place between September 19 and 25 at Shivaji Park.

Pointing out that the human body has an inherent power to detox by itself, which is getting difficult in today’s stressful lifestyle, the Mumbai based Indian Institute of Research in Detoxification (IIRD) for the last 11 years has been practicing hydraulic Power Detoxification or Hypo Detox, a seven-day Detoxification program for a complete resetting of your all body systems, and aiding the body detox naturally and leading to 2-11kg weight loss.

“Your body tries to get rid of the unhealthy stuff, but if you keep eating more junk, you’re not going to be able to get the other junk out. It’s like clogging a drain," explains Dr. M.R Narayan Rao, MBBS, MD, FIPC, a Practicing Consulting Physician and Preventive Cardiologist, Founder, IIRD Mumbai.

Hydraulic Power Detoxification is based on the age-old technique using five natural elements called Panchamahabhoota. This incorporates precisely and scientifically the enormous hidden powers of two elements, water and air, to aid in detoxification of the six sinuses situated in our head, both lungs and intestinal track ie almost all body systems, getting rid of toxins. This helps in reducing disease risks of especially lifestyle diseases ranging from acidity, gas, indigestion, constipation, repeated colds, migraine, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, heart attack, and even cancer, Dr Rao says, adding that it will make you younger by a minimum of ten years.
