If you put water into the gas tank of your car, will it run? If your forget to change the oil, will your car work properly? If you ride with low air pressure, will you get the best gas mileage? Detoxing your body is similar to tuning up your car and giving your car the fuel it needs! It allows your body to reboot its metabolism, boost its immunity, clears the cobwebs from your mind, gives your skin a chance to glow, and allows you to lose weight with more ease.
Are you afraid that it will be too hard or that maybe you aren’t worth it? You ARE worth it. You deserve to take time for you. You deserve to feel energetic and good about yourself. Do you remember what that feels like? You can be confident that you are worth it. You are enough and YOU CAN DO THIS! It takes intention and guidance. I will be with you every step of the way supporting you, answering your questions, and cheering you on, because I know you can do this.
Maybe a little fear comes up for you at the thought of not being able to eat your favorite foods.
Are you concerned about giving up your daily coffee, chocolate, or evening cocktails perhaps?
Are you afraid I’m going to make you drink juice and smoothies all day?
Maybe you think that you will feel hungry or deprived?
Having all these feelings are natural, but you know what is not natural? Feeling like we have to constantly count calories, not eat any fat, and go around in circles from one diet to the next. Doesn't the thought of that itself drain you of energy? I can teach you a different way!
There is no reason to be scared because you will NOT feel deprived. We are going to keep it simple and eat wholesome, REAL, nourishing foods. This is not a juice cleanse. This is not a starvation diet. This is a clean eating program that will teach you how to listen to your body and leave you feeling confident, refreshed & revitalized! The only thing you have to lose is some unwanted poundage, dark circles and puffiness under your eyes, and that feeling of lethargy that has been dragging you down. You will discover your blueprint for the foods that work for your unique body.
I have everything you will need: a step-by-step guide, the recipes, a shopping list and meal planner, as well as a transition recipe packet & food diary. I will be with you every step of the way with a private Facebook group, daily e-mail support and vested in your success. Don't trust me tooting my own horn.

In Chinese medicine the Spring is connected to the liver and the gallbladder. These two organs are blood cleansers and they both work hard to keep your body free of toxins. In Western medicine the liver is also associated with detoxification and blood filtration. Its job is to filter and neutralize the harmful substances in your body so that they do not do any damage.
When there is a toxic buildup in the liver and gallbladder the body can start to experience physical reactions such as exhaustion, colds, weight gain and depression, to name a few. The liver wakes up in the Spring and when imbalances exist in the body, it is not uncommon to experience feelings of anger, headaches, rashes and/or sleepless nights during this season.
With over 500 metabolic processes, the liver is the ‘Master Detoxer’ of the body. When the liver is congested, your digestion is impaired which results in a toxic overload. In honoring the Spring season, the goal is to cleanse the liver and improve its functioning.
The other organ of focus in Spring is the gallbladder. Bile is produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder. A toxic and overburdened liver leads to impaired release of bile from the gallbladder, which affects the breakdown of fats and overall digestion.
The liver and gallbladder work in harmony to support a strong immune system, balanced moods, and healthy digestion.
Eating with the seasons supports detoxification. Spring brings with it wonderful dark leafy greens like kale, swiss chard and spinach. Peas, artichokes, asparagus, garlic, nettle and dandelion are also wonderful cleansing foods for Spring. Choosing the right foods to heal the body and support proper detoxification by the liver, helps with cleansing the liver bringing you more vitality.

I just completed a 3-day juice cleanse and I am feeling refreshed. I needed to get caffeine and sugar out of my diet for a few days and while the first day was tough, I am feeling so much better! I want to offer you my guide for a 3-day Juice Cleanse.
Below is just the beginning of what you will find in my 3-Day Juice Cleanse. Juicing is great in Spring when the weather starts warming up and we feel like having cool drinks. Juicing is a great for jumpstarting weight loss, cleansing the body of toxins, enhancing digestion and boosting your immune system for the Spring Season. Juicing nourishes your body with nutrients, vitamins, and raw enzymes that are easy to digest and that enter the blood stream immediately. How amazing to be able to give your body this gift!
There are myriad benefits of juicing:
While many people can do a juice cleanse for 5 - 10 days, I recommend starting with 1 to 3 days and adding in clean meals as needed. You need to ensure you are getting adequate nutrients to support the regeneration of cells and organs while purging your body of toxic waste that can lead to health issues or a lack of vitality.
A juice detox gives your digestion a break and a chance to completely rest. Juicing is different from drinking smoothies because you are having just the juice without any pulp. The body can easily consume up to ten pounds of vegetables in juices, which would be very difficult to accomplish while eating vegetables with the fiber. This is ideal for people with IBS, leaky gut & candida. For those without hampered digestion, the combination of both methods – juicing and smoothies – can be very effective. Juicing is also a powerful way to replenish and hydrate the body.
Depending on where you live, buying freshly squeezed juices can run up to $12 per juice.
So, if you are going to make the life-changing commitment to juicing regularly, I would recommend empowering yourself by saving up to invest in a juicer. For a comparison of the various models available, refer to http://www.top10juicers.net.
After much investigation and even trying one juicer and returning it, I settled on the Omega NC800 HDS 5th Generation Nutrition Center Juicer and I LOVE IT! It’s easy to set up, easy to clean, and NEVER jams on me.
So if you want to take a chance with juicing, sign up for my free guide - The 3-Day Juice Cleanse. Even if you just want to try some recipes, grab the guide. I hope you enjoy it! Please share how you feel after the cleanse below :)
Hippocrates, in teaching the doctors of his day, said, “Consider the seasons of the year and what each of them produces.”
In the winter, we detox differently than at other times of the year, aiming to nourish and strengthen the body. Some animals hibernate, and we humans have a similar instinct to slow down. No matter where you live and what the climate is like in the winter, our bodies and minds naturally go inward this season. It is a time to allow for stillness and just be.
Each season’s detox supports a different organ, emotion, and a different way to cleanse the body. For the winter season, in Chinese medicine we honor the organs within our bodies that give us energy, life, and vitality, which are the kidneys and adrenal glands. The element associated with these organs is water. By eating seasonally and honoring the seasonal elements, we intuitively bring our bodies back into balance.
According to Chinese medicine, the kidneys are your energy source, also known as your vital Qi (pronounced “chee”). The following symptoms are associated with weak kidney function:
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, my Winter Reboot is a great place to start. By eating the foods in this winter program, you will begin to strengthen and support your vital energy force. Also, the exercises included in your Winter Detox Tool Kit will nourish your mind and spirit by releasing the emotions that are related to the kidneys: fear and anxiety. When we release fear, we step into power, strengthening our vital Qi, or life force. You can think of your kidneys as your engine tank. Every car needs a well-functioning engine to run efficiently.
As you nourish your kidneys, you will start to see changes such as:
During my winter reboot you will also be removing the foods you may be eating that are weakening your adrenal glands, such as excessive amounts of coffee, processed foods, sugar, white flour, dairy, and gluten.
Stress also negatively affects the adrenals, so think about other areas of your life that might be causing stress or disharmony. Again, the exercises in the Winter Detox Tool Kit will help you discover and address these areas of tension, preparing you for a winter season of health and happiness.
