This group cleanse will support your fall and winter wellness by

offering both nourishing and purifying practices and addressing

all the layers 

that make up who you are.

In short--a prep phase, a deep cleanse phase and a rejuvenating phase.

This fall program is 12 days and allows for an amount of time that can help to

build energy and sustenance for the winter to come.

What is Pancha Karma?

Pancha Karma is a five cleanse process of clearing toxins from all the systems of your body. It is a treatment of ancient ayurveda medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years.

Traditionally it uses 5 specific cleanse therapies. In modern times and in the west we utilize 4 of these 5, Of  these powerful actions, they are modified as needed to fit every home cleanser. I take into heart what is needed to create a home cleanse for you, and meet you where you are.

How can this home pancha karma cleanse help you?

It can:

  • Balances the doshas (dosha means your constitutional make up)

  • Adjust your relationship with food

  • Heal and reset your digestive system

  • Increase your digestive abilities

  • Enhance immunity

  • Reduce stress

  • Balance your mind

  • Calm your mind

  • Balance your emotional state

  • Balance your nervous system

  • Increase mental stamina by boosting your Ojas

  • Increase focus

  • Increase energy

  • Reduce or eliminate cravings

  • Reduce excess weight

  • Release toxins from the adipose tissues where they hide and are stored

  • Reset and increase your metabolism with long term results

  • Encourage wellness for your whole self physical, emotional, mental, spiritual        

How do we do this?

  • Clean up the diet for 21 days and make seasonally sound food choices

  • Eat kitcharee for a portion of the time

  • Intake medicinal amounts of ghee

  • Incorporate certain daily activities

  • Practice short daily yoga stretching and breathing sequences

  • Incorporate short daily exercise sessions

  • Apply mindful eating practices

  • Explore journal inquiries

  •  Attend virtual meetings

  • daily garshana—dry skin brushing

  • daily abhyanga--Self-massage

  • daily Fomentation/swedana-- steam therapy

  • and more

Through the above we will travel on this home modified pancha karma path together.

The program is as effective as you want it to be.

You can take it as modified as you need or as deep as you can go.

The commitment is what matters. Optional add ons are basti/enema therapy, nasya/oiling of sinuses therapy, a couple other add ons that we can discuss after registering.

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 foods, 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 your relationship with food. This may be the stepping stone you need to head toward long term healing and it could be life changing.


Please call 707-775-8543 or email 

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.

Are you ready to commit to your wellness?

Are you ready to eliminate unhealthy habits or at least begin better ones? 

Do you want to heal the deeper layers of your body?

Then sign up for this small group cleanse.


~I meet patients where they are, and we journey from there.

I look forward to meeting you on this adventure.~
