I heard about Atsumi from a friend a few years ago and thought that I would someday like to give it a go. The opportunity arrived this year and I decided to go for almost 2 weeks, doing a 3 day juice fast initially and then a 10 day full fast. I had no real idea of what to expect, but I am so glad I did it and it really has rejuveniated my whole body and mind! Fasting for 10 days is actually easier than it sounds, thanks to the Atsumi fasting team.
Yes, some of the necessary daily duties such as the colemas, clay shakes, liver flushes etc are a little unnerving at first, but you really do get used to them. You will have ample time to go shopping or to the beach etc and Atsumi also provides several excellent healers, fitness/yoga instructors etc if you wish (at extra cost). The daily massages are wonderful ;-)
In summary, you owe it to yourself to do this - although it's not a magical exilir to instantly make up for years of over-indulgence/self-abuse etc, it really does help you get back on the right track again and make you appreciate life and love. Think of it as a rebirth or second chance.
Thank you Atsumi!
