Our program is a 7 day customized program based on our initial consultation, exam and in-office toxicity testing and we offer 4 different detoxification levels!
If you’ve ever tried to clean the house with toddlers around, then you know exactly how your liver feels while you’re constantly ingesting toxins. Whether toxins are coming from your food, your air, your water, or your crabby attitude after a long day, it all registers as “toxins” to be processed by the liver. Toxins are unavoidable, but every once in a while you’ve got to stop and remove them with the structure and support of a fresh food detox!
The more greens people add to their diet,the more enthusiastic and energetic they get! Reducing the demand on your digestion will boost your physical and emotional energy! When your body doesn’t have to process heavy foods and toxins, you feel energetic and invigorated!
Participants tell us about weight plateaus that get broken, workouts that yield better results, and clothes that just become too big! With simple nutrient-dense foods you will feel easily satisfied and overeating is less likely to happen.
Within just a couple days of being on our green smoothie detox, you’ll notice a big difference in your skin and youthful complexion!! Reducing grains and harmful vegetable fats has an immediate and noticeable difference on the puffiness of your skin!
Eat glue, get glue. Moving to a fresh food diet will dramatically improve your digestion and elimination! You’ll feel better because you’re digesting better. What’s going on in the gut affects every part of your overall health and well-being!
You’ll feel less irritable, more interested in spending time with others and less “on the edge of your nerves” because your body is feeling rested and peaceful right down to your cells!
Think clearly, feel more focused and get more done because your attention and energy aren’t tied up with digestion! One of the things most of our participants say is that their concentration and focus improved dramatically!
Jump directly into the 100% DIET (no processed foods or animal products). If you are not already following a plant based diet, this is the recommended place to start. This level includes both cooked and raw foods. This level can also be easily modified for diabetics, cancer patients or those with candida.
This is a complete raw-food diet so it’s a much bigger commitment than Level 1. There are no restrictions on the quantity of fruits, and vegetables that can be included on your menu as long as it’s plant-based, unrefined & uncooked, eat up! This level can also be easily modified for diabetics, cancer patients or those with candida.
A mostly liquid diet of juices and or green smoothies. An allowance of 1-2 non-liquid meala are allowed daily. This level can also be easily modified for diabetics, cancer patients or those with candida.
This level is made up of only clean, low-glycemic raw vegan foods that create the highest level of total body cleansing & healing possible. The diet is similar to the one used at Hippocrates Health Institute & by Dr. Gabriel Cousens in his regimen presented in Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days. This is the most intense & challenging level.
The process of fasting has been attracting humanity for thousands of years, and has been successfully used throughout history for spiritual awareness, healing and rejuvenation. The act of providing the body with physiological rest spares the life force from being merely spent on digestion, thus diverting this vital energy towards healing and cleansing accumulated toxic waste. Most importantly, fasting is not starving. A thoughtfully conducted fast is completely different from a starvation state in which the body shifts into autolysis of its own vital structures.
According to Gabriel Cousens, MD, “Healthy functioning of the body begins to deteriorate when the normal process of cell regeneration and building becomes slower than the breakdown of unhealthy cells in the body. When the cells are degenerating faster than new cells are regenerating, we experience aging and disease. The physiology of fasting favors healthy cells. It is a process that initiates autolysis, during which poorly functioning cells are destroyed, and their cellular components are broken down and re-metabolized. Fasting helps to clear out the basement membrane so that nutrients can begin to get to the cells and new cell growth can be stimulated.”
During a fast, the eliminative systems of the body, such as the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels, become more active. When given a chance, the body is happy to direct its energy towards the elimination of accumulated waste, which often includes a wide range of environmental pollutants. This extra energy, combined with detoxification, and the re-mineralization that is gained from green juices, has a powerful normalizing effect on the bio-chemical and mineral balance of the body. All of this helps in restoring healthy organ function and promoting regeneration.
When the basement membranes (thin sheet of fibers that underlies the epithelium), are clogged, nutrients, including oxygen are not able to get through to the cells, and waste products cannot diffuse out of the cells back into the capillary blood stream. The result is that the cells begin to malfunction and degenerate. With excess toxicity and insufficient nutrients to the cells, the process of new cell growth slows down. When cells are degenerating faster than new cells are regenerating, we experience aging and disease.
Fasting helps to clear out the basement membrane so that nutrients can begin to get to the cells and new cell growth can be stimulated. The proteins from the broken down cells are re-metabolized and used to build new healthy cells during the fast. Because the body is not spending energy digesting and eliminating food and fresh toxins in the system, it is able to direct all of its energy toward the elimination of accumulated toxins and waste products.
detox-endOther advantages of fasting and the live foods lifestyle are the prevention of cancer and the reversal of diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Fasting also brings on the beginning stages of reversing chronic pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety and digestive disorders.
Fasting has many other benefits. One of its greatest benefits is of spiritual nature. Fasting is known to awaken spiritual energies and transform consciousness very deeply. It is not un-common that people experience spiritual awakenings during a cleansing process of this nature. Done in a full-spiritual context, a fast calms the vrittis (tendancies) of the mind, purifies the koshas (the physical and astral bodies), clears the nadis (the energetic blueprint of the physical body) and sets the preconditions for the awakening of the kundalini (the dormant spiritual energies at the base of the spine).
