I'll guide you through this gentle yet effective home cleanse.
People feel that this cleanse offered them more then they expected. Most people experience a sense of calm, cravings gone, weight loss, emotional healing, better food and meal habits, and a renewed relationship with self care and with themselves in general.
This is not a western fasting cleanse or a fad diet. In ayurveda we don't usually use fasting as a way to heal. We do however shift eating habits, eliminate certain food, and add in other practices to support this wholistic cleanse experience. You'll learn more once you register.
If the elimination of certain foods feels unattainable for some of you, I assure you this is a beautiful process of diving deeper into our relationship with foods. This may be the stepping stone you need to head toward long term healing or could be life changing.
Please call 707-775-8543 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you'd like more information or to have any questions answered.
Within 48 hours after registration you'll be sent via email an overview with a Pancha Karma cleanse outline, a suggested grocery list, and recipes.
Throughout the program you'll receive daily email instructions sometimes with short video, recipe options, and helpful tips. During just the second phase you'll receive daily journal prompts. You will also receive short yoga, breathing, and gentle exercise videos.
You'll have my support along the way. If you need more information or assistance, I will be easily accessible and available for you during this cleanse.
If you are ready to commit to your wellness,
take the steps to eliminate unhealthy habits,
and heal the deeper layers of your being,
then sign up for this group cleanse.
~I meet patients where they are, and we journey from there.
I look forward to meeting you on this adventure.~
