It’s Time For a Spring Cleaning!

Updated: May 31

The body is designed to be self-cleaning and to excrete toxins, but here’s the problem...

It can’t always handle the toxic overload present in today’s environment— polluted water, processed food, junk food, air pollution, chemicals in our toiletries and body products, nicotine, alcohol, pesticides, etc. etc. etc.

Chemicals that are not excreted can accumulate in our fat cells and cell membranes, becoming internal toxins.

Under stress, these toxins can be released into the bloodstream, causing a whole host of problems and making it harder to lose weight, have more energy, absorb nutrients, or feel good in your body.

So what is a cleanse?

A cleanse is a gentle way of clearing excess toxins from the body so it can operate at its highest potential. We focus for 3 weeks on eliminating common food irritants from the body and focusing instead on nutrient-dense whole foods. We also incorporate a variety of self-care practices.

You’ll find that every part of your body works better simply by “switching on” your metabolism through cleansing.

Cleansing helps you to:

  • Shed excess weight

  • Boost energy

  • Feel lighter and cleaner

  • Decrease cravings

  • Experience deeper sleep and clearer skin

  • Improve digestion (less gas and bloating)

  • Decrease congestion and allergy symptoms

  • Discover food sensitivities

  • Create healthy habits that enliven you

How will you know if it’s time for you to cleanse?

It’s time for you to cleanse if you answer “YES” to any of the following questions:

  1. Do you get bloated after eating?

  2. Do you tend to gain weight easily, especially in your belly?

  3. Do you have extra pounds that won’t come off with diet and exercise?

  4. Do you have headaches more than occasionally?

  5. Do you frequently belch or feel gassy or gurgling in your belly?

  6. Do you tend to feel lethargic during the day?

  7. Do you have cravings for sugar or starchy foods?

  8. Do you experience frequent mood swings or anxiety?

  9. Do you have difficulty focusing or experience foggy brain?

  10. Do you have allergies or hay fever?

  11. Do you experience pain, muscle aches, or stiffness in your joints?

  12. Do you feel addicted to foods that you know aren’t good for you... and yet, you can’t stop?

  13. Do you generally feel upset, nervous or downright cranky?
