Why do a detox? Don't our bodies know how to get clean all on their own?
The truth of the matter is that we live in a toxic world, and we're exposed to toxins in many forms on a daily basis, whether it's pesticides in our food, hormones and anti-biotics in our protein sources, toxins in tap water, fumes from traffic, fragrances and toxic ingredients in our household, laundry, skincare and beauty products, or the EMF output from our computers and smart phones. Our bodies can only handle so much toxic input at a time!
When our bodies get overexposed to toxins, our liver does the best job it can to protect us, and it does this by wrapping toxins in mucous and storing them in fat cells. (Um, yuck.) When toxins stored in our fat, we can’t burn that fat until we release and process that toxin! The reality is that no matter how much you exercise, eat right, and manage your stress, you won’t be able to lose that stubborn belly fat until you partake in a detox and get rid of those toxins for good.
Here are some common symptoms of toxic overload: digestive issues, headaches, allergies, irritability, belly fat, bloating, breakouts, fatigue, insomnia, pain, mysterious health issues. - and a weakened immune system, which we are all realizing is CRITICAL to our survival. Toxicity left unchecked leads disease and chronic conditions. Experiencing any of these symptoms?
IT IS TIME FOR A DETOX!
I believe that we all need to be cleansing and detoxing on a regular basis. Think about it... what if you never cleaned your kitchen or your house?!Your body is the house of your soul... JUST IMAGINE!
Detoxes can help to:
- Heal the Gut. Eating healthier foods will create a healthier ecosystem in the gut by starving the fungus and parasites (unhealthy bacteria) that love to feed on toxins... improving the health and diversity of the microbiome is the key to optimal health.
- Rev up your metabolism. A properly done detox can be great for re-setting your metabolism and burning fat that's been clinging to your body for years.
- Give your body a break! Digestion takes a lot of energy, and it's important to give our digestive systems a break every now and then so they can repair damage done from foods that can damage them, like fried, processed, and sugary treats.
- Reset your habits. Have you noticed that you're reaching for the candy bowl more often than before? Are you drinking more wine than water these days? Cleanses are great for helping you become aware of your bad habits so you can start changing them.
- Make you feel better than you’ve ever felt before. Many of our detox clients tell us they have more energy, sleep better, and have more drive for life than ever before – pretty incredible for just 5 days!
- Lose Fat – Did you know that toxins are stored in your fat tissue, and that in order to burn the fat for fuel, you need to remove the toxins first? AND… the more toxic you are, the more fat you need to house the toxins? The reason why many people can’t lose weight is due to high toxicity levels in the body. REMOVE TOXINS = REMOVE FAT!

Frequently Asked Questions
I’m really busy – will this program work for me?
Yes, we get it; we’re ALL busy these days. But the reality is that feeling heavy and frustrated isn’t helping you squeeze more productivity into your day. This detox is quick, easy, and WILL make a difference. Many detoxers have told us that their families have just eaten all the foods along with them with little to no complaints. Plus, a 5-Day detox is much quicker than most programs you’ll find out there, and we’ve created a lot of done-for-you materials to make this as easy as possible.
Have questions? Great. I'd love to help you figure out if this is the right program for you. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you ASAP.
Lots of love and healthy eating,
