Our bodies are responsible for doing so many things for us. It’s amazing when you really think about it. And it does so automatically and without question.
What is so impressive is the body’s innate ability to heal. You may have heard this time and time again, but when it comes to healing, the body know exactly what to do.
The body is also very intelligent. It knows how to communicate with us, and inform us if something is wrong. Often these signs start out as quiet whispers, such as a small ache, or slight digestive discomfort after eating something. If ignored, these whispers get louder and louder over time.
In Chinese Medicine, health, (and everything for that matter), is evaluated according to balance. The famous tai-ji symbol, the black and white circle with the wave in the middle represents balance of yin and yang. As acupuncturists, we diagnose our patients, for example, as having an excess or deficiency of yin or yang, along with blood and qi. In short, if our bodies are out of balance, our bodies will let us know by having symptoms.
Knowing the body can heal itself, and that pathologies happen as a result of an imbalance, often the body needs a break so that it can get back to balance. When the body becomes overloaded with toxins from the environment, our diets, our hormones, and from toxic chemicals that we use in the home, it becomes more difficult for the body to feel well because it has a high toxic load. When the toxic load is high, the liver becomes burdened and doesn’t work as efficiently as it normally does.
Do you need to Detox? Here are some common symptoms that can be alleviated by a good detox program:

...and much more!
I started The Detox Intensive when I realized that there was a need for Detox in my patient population as an Acupuncturist. Many people reported that they really wanted to do the detox, but they didn’t feel confident that they would be able to complete it. They feared that they would get sidetracked and as a result, would cheat and fail at the detox. People also feared that they wouldn’t be able to give up their favorite foods, like gluten, or coffee. The thought of doing that felt deprivative and overwhelming.
What I learned is that people just needed the support. Perhaps there is a limited belief or an old story about social norms about food that the person is unconsciously holding on to that goes back to childhood, or old programming. By adding in the coaching component, clients can go through the detox, while getting the coaching support throughout the 28 days. This program has proven to be very effective, and previous clients had very positive outcomes, from gaining more energy, losing a few inches, or experiencing improved sleep.
The next Detox Intensive starts on October 8. Students will all start the Detox at the same time, using the Standard Process Detox Balance 28 Day product. The product itself comes with plenty of information that is useful for preparing beforehand and reference during the detox, and I will be on hand to offer any additional information and support.
Early bird tuition is $1111 if enrolled by 9/27/19, and $1333 after.
