If you are looking to care for yourself in a deeper way. Consider participating in one of my seasonal detoxes. Here's what people are saying about their experience in the detox.
"Before the Detox, I was a mess. I was slightly depressed, moody, anxious, full of worry, heavy, not happy with my current diet. I had a feeling of helplessness in the sense that whatever I ate showed up on the scale, left me bloated, I often over ate, experienced frequent bouts of acid reflux, snacked between meals, was constipated or had diarrhea, and the list goes on. After the Detox, I have lost more weight than expected, I feel good and no longer have the above symptoms. My yearly physical and lab results were excellent. My blood pressure is lower than it has been for years; my cholesterol numbers are what they want heart attack patients to be at. I'm not a heart attack or stroke candidate. My AC1 numbers are good. I feel lighter, healthier and happy! To others I would say, if you are experiencing some things from your diet, daily life, or diseases/medical issues that you do not like, this program could be the game changer you are looking for at least it has been for me." Sue (Oregon)
"Before the detox I was at the end of my rope, tired, overwhelmed, emotional, in pain and feeling hopeless. After the Detox it was like I worked through a magic program that restored me to my younger self. Feeling like there is a new lease on life. Pain almost gone, increased energy, feeling balanced, happier and more at peace." Brenda (Florida)
I think Sue and Brenda summed the detox experience up well. It can truly be a time of immense change and positive shifts in your wellbeing.
It's just 3 weeks and the results can be impressive!!
I offer the Spring Detox in March and the Autumn Detox in September. Check out the "Programs" tab a month before the detoxes start to read more about them and to register.
