Kurotel Longevity Medical Center & Spa
Top 10 Detox Spas in the World
Kurotel Longevity Medical Center in Gramado, a mountain resort in southern Brazil, is a wellness destination founded by Dr. Luis Carlos Silveira and his wife Neusa in 1982. Today, the couple's four daughters have joined the family commitment to good health. Kurotel specializes in preventive medicine and has long been considered one of the world’s best weight loss destinations. Guests are drawn for a variety of reasons: for medical assessments, to detox from addiction, for weight loss and sleep enhancement, to simply relax or to mentally and physically prepare themselves for surgery. Integral to the week-long “Kur” are seven small gourmet meals and snacks per day, use of pools and facilities, daily exercises from woodland walks to dance classes and Kneipp hydrotherapy. This type of treatment features changing water temperatures (warm to cool) to enhance circulation, kidney function, overall wellness and resistance to disease.
