21 Benefits From Doing a Spring Detox Challenge

Natural Wellness Academy is hosting a 21-day guided “detox” for Body, Mind & Spirit that you can follow at your own pace.  We will provide loads of resources, recipes, tips, advice, food prep hacks etc. as well as ideas and inspiration to reset your mind and lighten your spirit.

Our FREE 21-Day Challenge:
Sunday April 21, 2024 through Friday, May 11, 2024

Having just entered Quarter 2 of the (not-so-new) year, I’ve noticed that some of the holiday habits I acquired are not melting away as much as I’d like.  Since we announced our FREE guided 21-day “spring cleaning” challenge (through our newsletter and forums) there have been a lot of people signing on – so, evidently I’m not alone in wanting to get a fresh start to 2024.

These group challenges are especially fun and invigorating because when you are part of a group (or, in my case, leading it :- ) you feel more motivation, commitment and the push to be accountable.

Hosted on Our Dedicated Facebook Group

You are invited to join our Facebook Group, which is periodically activated to host these challenges

This is not as rigorous of a detox that we have done in the past (like the Master Cleanse, or Juice Fasts); We are simply going to eliminate those foodstuffs that are a) most related to inflammation and digestive dysbiosis; and b) tend to trigger us the most via cravings and become addictive, like salt and sugar.

We will eliminate the following for 3 weeks– however, this is a no-judgment zone and there are no “detox police”.  You do what you feel is appropriate.

Meat and Dairy Products including Eggs, Cheese, All kinds of Animal protein

Sugar (there are plenty of healthy sweetener substitutions that you will learn about!)

Optional:  Wheat Gluten  – this is up-to-you, but it’s always good to test yourself periodically to see how your digestion might shift or improve if you take a gluten break.

Attend a Prep Zoom Meeting on Tuesday April 16!

On Tuesday, April 16 (5 days before the official start day) I will be hosting a Zoom where I’ll share some ways to get started and we can discuss ways to substitute your sweet and savory snacks.  Feel free to present me with your best challenges so I can help brainstorm ideas.  This session will be recorded and the link available in the Facebook group afterwards, but it’s always great to “meet” you in these video forums and answer your questions.

Link to join at 7 pm EDT, 6 pm CDT, 5 pm MDT, 4 pm PDT & Arizona
