A Detox Diet is probably on your mind today, since it is January, and since you are reading this blog. Between Thanksgiving and December holidays you probably ate too much of the “wrong” things and added an inch or so to your waist. Unfortunately, that extra pound or two we add every fall-winter from the social and family (food) events is the extra weight, we learn from research, we tend not to lose in the coming year. The news is not too bright if we do it again each year.

We know from research that when people look for a weight loss program, a detox diet program, or a detox cleanse, they prefer to do it online. There are a lot of programs out there, but you want to watch what you are getting because they may actually cause more harm than is worth it, which I have seen and have had to amend for some patients.

What is a Detox Diet?

A Detox Diet Program typically lasts 12 to 14 days and provides specific detox recipes, some or all of which may be pre-formulated shakes and pre-cooked meals. Just like changing the oil in your car every 3 months or so, we are supposed to change our internal oil and clean up seasonally.

You will find that there is a seasonal fast in almost every culture. That is why, we are taught to believe we need to clean periodically. Well, there is a slight problem with this old paradigm. We have just not caught up with how toxic we actually are. A religiously inspired seasonal water fast was a beautiful detox cleanse 100 years ago. Unfortunately, the new level of toxicity requires a new level of knowledge, understanding, and support of the human body. Otherwise, sometimes the damage from a deep cleanse can mean the development of a new autoimmune disorder. I have certainly seen cases of that, so I really need you to hear me on this.

Why am I telling you this?

I am a clinician with a passion for detoxification, the science of it, the environmental toxicity research, and the impact toxicity has had and continues to have increasingly on our physiology, our immune system, and our health. I have run my highly successful and life changing 30-Day Whole Food Detox Program for several years. It taught my patients a new level of vigilance needed in our daily life in this new toxic reality and it provided a new baseline with the right support for their bodies to process the increased toxic insult in every day choices. It was easy, practical and delicious. In 30 days, I gave my patients long lasting tools to live life without the toxins causing more disease and without the worry of diseases. I see what is happening in toxicology and in toxicity in the environment and food industry. And that is why I had to create that Program in the first place.

We went to a health food store on a guided tour. Using my detox recipes, I cooked a delicious 5-course meal for our Day 1 Workshop, which we shared together. I provided individual and group support and education and clinical input. People who graduated from Detox Program were able to thrive long term with the tools they had learned. This was a true Nutrition Makeover Program. It is just that the toxicity component had to be a core part of it- we could not ignore that.

The Detox Program transformed many lives. But especially in the last 2 years I noticed that the commute as well as work, and family schedules were getting worse and made it more challenging for my participants to benefit fully from the program. I could only work with and cook for a small group at a time. I could not reach as many people as I wanted. We all need this education and these tools!

And that is why we are going national and we have moved our Detox Program fully online. I cannot express enough how my heart is jumping out of my chest out of joy that I finally have the IT-tools to provide this program to all of you, wherever you are. You really need to learn how to keep toxins at bay. You really can feel fabulous and look younger. You really can feel empowered knowing exactly how to live your life from now on. You really can learn foods in a way you would not dream of before and make them your medicine. Welcome to the nutrition for the 21st century.
