Flexible detox camp
(kudzu fast, brown rice porridge fast, no-salt)

We hold the camp 3-4 times a year, but we can also hold the camp during a period that suits your individual schedule. Please feel free to contact us.

After the half fast, you will eat a no-salt diet. The no-salt meal is a buffet-style meal that does not contain any salt, so there is a cost for ingredients.
We have received feedbacks such as "no rebound" and "I will continue to do this even after I go home.

Instructors: Haruo Mori and Minaka Nagai

A combination of brown rice porridge fasting and no-salt diet, or a basic diet of two meals a day with a drink in the morning.
meal and a drink in the morning.
Since each person's constitution is as different as his or her personality, we use a detoxification method suited to that person.
We use a salt-free diet, which is effective in metabolizing accumulated sodium, which is a cause of lifestyle-related diseases, in accordance with modern people who have been eating animal products in many of their daily meals for many years. By combining brown rice porridge fasting and a no-salt diet, and by following it through to the return to normal diet, many participants are able to effectively eliminate both yin and yang toxins without rebounding. Many people find it easy to continue their individualized diet after returning home.

Since the body is the sublime thing, we do not focus only on food, but also on our original exercises, zazen meditation, breathing exercises, meditation walking, meridian exercises, meridian acupressure, dancing, etc. that promote the secretion of female hormones and improve internal organ functions, making the camp last a very short time.
We will provide our original program to cover all three major human desires: appetite, sexual desire, and desire to sleep.

We will give you detailed individual advice on how to solve your problems not only physically, but also in terms of your mind and other core issues, while looking at your face, hands, body, and spiritual diagnosis, etc.

Detailed lectures and treatment methods will be given as needed so that participants can spend the camp with confidence and peace of mind by gaining a deeper understanding of toxin elimination, salt-free diet, and medical watchdog methods.

Living with a lingering sense of well-being
One of the things we can convey through our lives, even if only a little, is the importance of cleaning. There are moments when you can realize how important it is to be a human being, both physically and mentally, when you work together every day in an effective way to do things such as dusting.
In addition, we sometimes have a very lively discussion on family issues, sexual issues, life issues, etc. at the last night of the class, where we talk frankly about our experiences with many people over a long period of time. We have a very lively time at each camp.
We are able to convey the splendor of the Yamato spirit and the important way of life as a human being only through the camp, where we eat and sleep together.
