General Cleanse Information

Our cleanses are 3-week, supervised programs designed to work with the body’s innate detoxification processes, allowing individuals to effectively neutralize and eliminate toxins. Cleansing allows your body to release any stored toxins and return to a natural state of balance, thus keeping you healthy and warding off many conditions that can lead to disease. It also makes you feel fantastic!

Our Cleanse program design draws on the principals of Functional Medicine, a model of healing that embraces the integration of Western, evidenced-based science with an Eastern, holistic approach to deliver individualized care that truly gets to the root of disease.  

Detoxification is a joint venture of many organs and systems that work in harmony to neutralize and eliminate toxins, both “inner,” the by-products of normal body functions, and “outer,” toxins that we eat, breathe, or absorb through our skin and intestines. Detoxification involves the liver, the intestines, the kidneys, the lungs, the skin, and the blood and lymphatic circulatory systems. Detoxification is a constant activity, as every day, the cells in our body are breathing, working and generating waste.  This waste must be neutralized and removed from the body, otherwise it can become toxic and compromise our health.

Program Goals

Our cleanses are created to incorporate the five essential functions of detox:

  • Reduce the workload of digestion by consuming less solid food and leaving out irritants
  • Restore the twelve-hour window
  • Rebuild the inner environment
  • Support the liver
  • Enhance elimination

Why Cleanse?

  • Remove irritating substances from the body  – a cleanse works by removing the most common food allergens so the body can spend its energy cleansing and healing
  • Restore the body back to a state of balance to improve energy, mental clarity and mood while decreasing cravings, bloating, allergies and fluid retention

  • Rebuild your body – because many of us are lacking in vital minerals, nutrients, phytonutrients and healthy fats, our cleanse emphasizes nutrient dense shakes and daily meals to help rebuild your body while you cleanse
  • Rejuvenate the entire body to better support optimal function. A cleanse is one of the best ways to understand how your body reacts to different types of foods. The skills you learn during the program will create lasting change and empower you towards health for the rest of your life.

Common Symptoms Associated with Toxicity

Duration and Structure of Cleanse

Our cleanse program works best when you complete the full three weeks, but the program will also yield results after one or two weeks. Some of our patients do not complete the three-week program their first time, while others jump in and complete the entire cleanse program the first time around. Wherever you are in the spectrum, it is important to remember that every change you make is an important and beneficial one, and you will be in a good place to go further on your next cleanse.

This cleanse program has three key phases, all of equal importance:

PHASE ONE: Preparing for Your Cleanse

Take at least 3-5 days to ease your body and mind into the cleanse protocol. This involves preparing your mind, (as you are changing habits for a few weeks) preparing your life, and preparing your body. This phase gently and mindfully reduces your exposure to toxins from the environment and foods to set you up to complete the cleanse in full. Like everything in life worth working for, this program will take commitment and discipline.

PHASE TWO: 21 days of Cleanse Foods

Every day you will have three meals made from clean, whole foods.  Snacks are optional for those who want them.  This is not about restriction of food quantity, but people often feel they need less over time. The cleanse group meets weekly during this phase to provide ample guidance and support to enable your success and transformation.

PHASE THREE: Reintroduction of Foods

After 21 days of consuming exclusively cleanse foods, you will be systematically reintroducing previously excluded foods. The goal is to isolate one excluded food at a time to determine if it is one of your Toxic Triggers. A whole weekly cleanse session will be devoted to explaining this process and support you in identifying reactions, and following a structured reintroduction plan.

It’s during this phase that we also discuss transitioning back into a ‘new normal’ diet to maintain the benefits you’ve acquired through the cleanse throughout the next season or year.
