What Is Atmanjai? A Detox, Wellness & Yoga Center designed to enhance our natural well being


Located on the island of Phuket, Thailand – our programs are designed for those who are ready to change their present lifestyle and embark on a new beginning of healthy living.

Founded by Mr. Starr Farish six years ago, and based on world renowned program developed by Dr. Bernard Jensen, it is a total program to cleanse the body, increase consciousness and awareness and integrate these changes into our personal live. The results are a slimmed body, radiant skin and a mind that is active and alert.

The fast pace of life in the modern world is pushing mankind to the edge both physically and mentally. These factors cannot be separated for if one is weak it will influence the other.

Stressed people pay little attention to eating habits. It is the tendency to eat whatever that comes their way and is comfortable for them regardless of the effect those foods have on their totality. While we may know better, the inclination is to take care of ourselves tomorrow, perhaps, with little regard to today. This frantic lifestyle and being immersed in stressful situations is reflected in the most all our actions including harmful foodstuffs we consume: fried foods, white flower, sugars, and other foods that are considered of an acidic nature, etc.

Processed foods are a root problem in the world today providing few nutrients, creating bulk, and generating an unhealthy body. The digestive system becomes overworked and unable to effectively process the intake leading to an overburden of toxins in the body.

Acidic body = unhealthy body
Alkaline body = healthy body

The more acidic we are the more sicknesses we invite. The more alkaline we are the more we eliminate the chance of becoming ill.

It is quite amazing that we human beings treat our car with care, good gasoline and periodic checks and oil change. Yet we treat the body in an unhealthy manner without consideration of the type of ‘gasoline’ we consume and rarely perform periodic maintenance. We become sluggish, overweight and unhappy.

What is wrong with us! Isn’t taking care of the physical vehicle of primary importance?

At Atmanjai our programs are designed to provide the essentials of ‘refined gasoline’ and periodic maintenance treatments that will clean your body and heal many abnormalities within 7 days. Why? Because our proven program rids the body of toxins, bulk and debris in this very short time. The result leaves you feeling energized and healthy, more mentally alert and relaxed. It is a life changing experience. After seven days, our clients report having a more positive outlook on life to say nothing of their physical well being and a peaceful inward feeling.

When you treat your body with care and respect it will feel good, it will prosper. Load the body with cheap processed gasoline – it ceases to function optimally.

Be well.

Maya Abdominal Massage Therapy

The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Therapy is an external non-invasive massage treatment of the abdomen and lower back suitable for men & women.



It works to:

  • soften musculature,
  • enhance circulation of the blood, lymph, nerves & qi
  • improve digestion, assimilation & elimination
  • and reposition internal organs that have shifted (such as a tilted uterus which the Maya believe is responsible for a myriad of female problems).

The focus of this work is not on treating symptoms but on restoring homeostasis (balance within the body) and hemodynamics (blood flow within the body).  Having said that, this work helps all manner of digestive and reproductive issues such as painful periods, bladder incontinence, PMS, fibroids, painful intercourse, prolapse, difficult menopause, post-hysterectomy scarring, low back ache, constipation, IBS, swollen prostate and depression.  By normalizing the body’s processes and removing obstructions, health concerns resolve naturally.

Many cultures incorporate abdominal massage into their medicine, such as the Maya have been using these techniques for thousands of years. The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy are based on the teaching of Rosita Arvigo, who apprenticed for ten years with Don Elijio Panti, one of the last Mayan shamans of Belize. Rosita saw the power and benefits of his treatments and incorporated her own training as a naprapath (an off-shoot of chiropractic) to create the method that bears her name. Their story can be read in her biography, Sastun: My Apprentice with a Mayan Healer.

Maya Abdominal Massage
Rosita and Don Elijo

20 years ago, when I lived in Mexico,  I was introduced to Maya Abdominal Massage and Rosita Arvigo but completely forgot about it until one day fate brought me back to it via a magazine article sent by a dear friend. She had been suffering with fibroids and I had just found out I had them too. After reading the article, I googled Arvigo Therapy in Australia and booked myself in for a treatment, as well as their 2 1/2 day self-care course. A lengthy intake form is filled out before the treatment, so that the two hour session can be spent on the massage and teaching the self-care.

The massage entails work on the abdomen, lower back and sacrum, along with gentle corrections to the hips. Other methods may be incorporated depending on the circumstances including faja (abdominal wrap), bajos (vaginal steam used by the Maya and Korean woman), castor oil packs, and when appropriate dietary guidance. The self-care courses build upon what is learned during the treatment and I can’t recommend them highly enough. These days they are taught world-wide and I am working toward becoming a self-care teacher myself.

I am a massage therapist, acupuncturist and Kripalu yoga teacher, but these days, I find myself focusing on the Arvigo Therapy before anything else as I have seen such amazing results for all kinds of reproductive and digestive problems. It is also a wonderful preventative treatment and an adjunct to any detox program. I particularly like that the self-care is an integral part of the work and clients are taught tools to take home and integrate into their lives, encouraging them to be active participants toward optimum health.

Colloidal Silver – Natures Gentle Antibiotic

Colloidal Silver (CS) is a 100% natural antibiotic. It consists of just purified water and millions of electrically charged silver particles.

Silver is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal mineral. It disables harmful microbes but is harmless to healthy cells. A ‘colloid’ is any substance that has been reduced to microscopic particle size and is suspended in a liquid. This process is done by passing electricity through pure silver electrodes while they are immersed in a container of pure water; otherwise known as electrolysis. By reducing the silver to a microscopic ‘colloid form’ the surface area and absorption rate are maximized.

Silver does not remain in the body; the body uses what it needs and expels any excess through the urine. Silver is NOT a heavy metal, it is a noble metal (along with gold and platinum). Silver does not permeate the cell membrane and can therefore be easily excreted by the body. Silver is a totally non-toxic metal and is listed as such by health agencies around the world.

The silver ions carry a positive magnetic charge, and most harmful bacteria carry a negative magnetic charge, so they are attracted to one another very quickly. Once contact is made, the silver ions bind to the pathogens and deactivate their respiration function, and the pathogen swiftly dies.

I have been producing literally thousands of litres of colloidal silver since 2006. I can wholeheartedly confirm that it is as close to a miracle product as anything else I have ever experienced. I don’t know of any other product that is lethal to pathogens and yet can be safely sprayed directly into the eyes, cuts, burns, genitals and mouth without causing any harm or stinging at all.

Once you start using it you’ll rapidly realise just how versatile it is. Like many of the friends and people I know who also use it, I couldn’t imagine living without it now. I really encourage you to discover the many benefits of colloidal silver! Won’t colloidal silver turn my skin blue/grey? Ever since first discovering colloidal silver for myself, I have been searching the internet and books for any evidence of dangers or risks associated with it. After years of extensive research I have managed to find just ONE reported issue. And in fact, this is a non-issue as it does not relate to colloidal silver itself.

There are a few dozen reports on some people whose skin has become discoloured after drinking HUGE amounts of IMPURE electrically generated silver solution for MONTHS OR YEARS at a time. This impure form of silver compounds, in large enough doses, results in some of the impurities being trapped in the skin, where over time it can eventually cause discolouration. The discolouration of the skin through impure silver compounds is medically known as argyria (pronounced A-GEE-REE-A). When the average person hears of this they typically run a mile from colloidal silver, convinced that a single tablespoon will turn them grey!

Nothing could be farther from reality. Argyria can ONLY occur if you are drinking MASSIVE amounts of IMPURE colloidal silver for EXTENDED periods of time. If you make colloidal silver with water that contains minerals (such as nitrates or sulfates) the silver ions will bind to those minerals creating silver compounds such as silver nitrate or silver sulphide.

The body has a very difficult time detoxifying such compounds and will deposit them in the layers of the skin. Even then, you still need to drink dozens of litres of impure silver solution for months for visible signs to appear in the skin. The truth is that not one single person has ever had their skin change colour from drinking pure colloidal silver. Simply apply common sense buy consuming only a pure product and stick to recommended dosages and you will enjoy all the healing benefits of colloidal silver risk free. Here are some useful guidelines to follow:

If you are buying a colloidal silver product, it should be:

  • Made using purified or steam distilled or purified water only
  • Made using 99.99% pure silver only
  • Be no more than 20ppm strength
  • Have no colour to it, just pure crystal clear like water
  • Take a teaspoon to a tablespoon per day as a preventative
  • Adults – no more than 8 tablespoons per day during sickness
  • Children – no more than 3 teaspoons per day during sickness
  • Use it in moderation, either during ‘flu seasons’ or whenever you feel symptoms of illness appearing

If you are making your own colloidal silver:

  • Use ONLY steam distilled/purified water (NOT tap, mineral, filtered)
  • As an additional measure, invest into a Hanna Instrument’s PWT digital ppm tester to ensure accurate strength
  • Ideally the water should have a reading of less than 1.0 on a Hanna PWT digital meter
  • Use only 99.99% pure silver electrodes
  • Never add salt or anything else to the water
  • Follow the production guidelines of the silver generator you buy
  • Consume only when crystal clear or light champagne colour
  • Follow the dosage guidelines already mentioned above
