I’m pleased to let you all know that in October I will be offering a variation of the Core Values Detox program I led in May. This one has a bit of a twist to it so I’m calling it Core Values Detox Plus.
The focus of Core Values Detox as originally designed was on digestion. Do you realize your digestive health is directly related to how you look, feel and function?
It’s said that “You are what you eat.” But the reality is that you are what your body can do with what you eat. And that starts with the functions of your digestive system. Most of us may not realize that restoring our digestive health can have a huge impact in many other aspects of our health.
There are many symptoms that we all associate with digestive issues: bloating, resistant weight loss, gas, constipation, diarrhea. But here’s a little secret: Digestive disturbances aren’t always obvious. If your digestive system functions aren’t optimal, they can show up in many different ways:
- bad breath
- brain fog
- colds, asthma, and respiratory illnesses
- decreased immunity
- disrupted sleep
- food sensitivities
- gum infections
- skin problems like eczema, acne, psoriasis and rashes
- yeast infections
That’s where my favorite question – Why? – comes in. I believe in digging down to find the root cause of symptoms. And digestive system functions are the first place to look. That’s because your digestive system is the ultimate gatekeeper. It decides what will travel into the circulatory system and what will not. If it’s in good repair, then only the good things get in. But if it’s not, then problems can ensue.
So I said that Core Values Detox Plus was the original detox with a twist. What is the twist I’m adding?
Those of us with chemical sensitivity have an excess build up of toxins stored in our bodies. They are coming in – via what we eat, breathe, and put on our body – faster than out detox pathways can get them out.
So here’s the twist: We’ll be adding in some foods, supplements and activities that are known to help the body to detox toxins. In tweaking the Core Values Detox, I’ll be focusing on the detox pathways that are known to help get rid of the external chemical toxins that make us sensitive.
As in the original Core Values Detox, this is an all natural detox. The plan will be centered on whole foods. All of it natural. Sure there will be some supplements. But the foods you’ll be eating will be whole foods. No processed foods. No GMOs. No liquid diets. No ‘fake’ foods.
Core Values Detox Plus is 10 days just for you. There is a kick off call on October 3rd which you’ll want to attend (or the recording will be available if you can’t make it) as it will help you prepare for the detox. Core Values Detox Plus itself runs from October 7th through October 16th. During that time, you’ll have my support through a private Facebook group as well as daily emails to encourage you on your path.
