6 Hong Kong Detoxes We're Trying This Week
Clean up your act after a night of excess and extravagance with these six delicious detoxes
After an indulgent evening at the #HKTatlerBall2016, we’re ready for some much-needed R&R. Everyone needs a pick-me-up from time to time, and we’re looking at detoxes as a way of spring-cleaning our insides before winter: and the good news is there are so many different ways to do it. Whether you want to just cut down on your meat, increase your nutrients with superfoods or go all-out with meal replacements, now is the ideal time to reset your body and get ready for the upcoming social season.
Healthy Choices by Mandarin Oriental
By combining juices and a delicious acai bowl, the Healthy Choices detox from Mandarin Oriental lets your digestive system rest, whilst simultaneously giving you enough energy to continue with your day-to-day life. The four juices and acai bowl focus on five key areas: energy, recharge, refresh, recover, and detox. Designed with iridologist Jennifer Thompson, this detox aims to inspire long-term lifestyle changes rather than fad dieting. Each product is made fresh in the morning, so ensure you order in advance to secure yours.

From the Integrated Medicine Institute (IMI) comes an intensive ten-day detox programme designed by Graeme Bradshaw, an expert in naturopathic practices. More vigorous than a simple juice cleanse, the IMI uses herbal and homoeopathic remedies to remove the toxins from our organs and tissue that we take in from pollution and chemicals in our daily life. Each programme is individualised to give you optimum results and there are opening and closing meetings to make sure you have the correct support and information for your detox.
