Group “S-Cleanse” Experience May 26th – May 29th
Internal “Spring Cleaning” – There’s Power in Numbers!
We have sponsored several Master Cleanses, Green Smoothie Experiences and Group Juice Fasts through our website and Facebook page. Before we leave the spring season, why not add an internal cleaning to your seasonal dusting and reorganization? This time I’d like to introduce you to a whole new paradigm in fasting – the S-Tox. Detox without Deprivation. To see my latest blog on “Extending Spring Cleaning to Body, Mind, Spirit” visit here.
Doing a periodic cleanse does wonders for your body, mind and spirit! It’s like a virtual reset button that enhances your energy, rejuvenates your skin and other organs at the cellular level, clears your mind and gives you an overall boost in self-confidence.
Physically, it helps reduce inflammation by ridding the body of toxins and free radicals.
Mentally, you are affirming that you want to recommit to healthier eating and not let your emotions interfere with your food choices.
Spiritually, you become stronger by challenging and honoring yourself in the cleansing process.
An alliance is formed between body, mind and spirit to help you become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself.
Whether you’ve ever done a fast or thought about doing one, it’s an admirable and proactive choice, as it’s not an easy thing to do. You have to gear yourself up to deal with minor discomfort and feeling hungry and irritated. That’s part of what makes it so powerful, as you are building up your mind power by facing down that inner voice that wants to make your quit.
How the S-Tox Came Into Being
Each year my goal is to have one cleanse sometime between new year’s and start of spring. Then I do the second one as a kind of “Fall Clearing” in September or October. I started putting the S-Tox together when I realized much much I dread feeling hunger pangs and deprivation; As I have learned so much about nutrition and whole foods over the years so I was able to put together my own recipes and guidelines. Every time I followed this regime for 4 to 10 days, I felt that I got all of the benefits of doing a cleanse, but I never felt hungry or deprived; In fact most days I did not even want the snacks. As everything I was substituting for my own gentle detox started with an S. the name occurred to me.
