If you’re looking for a way to jump start your New Year, I have just the thing: a 5-day fruit and veggie juice cleanse.
Historically speaking I’ve not been a huge fan of dietary programs that require drastic change. I did my time with diets like Atkins and South Beach. Those two messed me up for a full year, at least. But lately I have become a big fan of the short-term cleanse. My change of heart has been inspired by a few recent experiences.
Most significantly, I’ve led a few cleanse programs at Cleveland Yoga, and the personal transformations I witnessed were truly inspiring. No joke. People were able to eliminate medications they’d been taking for years, had energy resurgences that were shocking (one participant said, “I was up vaccuming at 5am! and I’m NEVER one to do that!”), and a host of other benefits like clearer skin, better endurance during athletics, less pain, and significantly improved digestion. And most participants were able to sustain improvements while integrating non-cleanse food back into their diets.
Secondly, I was inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. You should check it out. It’s about an unhealthy gentleman suffering from an autoimmune disease who decides to do a 60-day fruit and veggie cleanse. Let’s just say the results were pretty impressive.
Now I would certainly not recommend that everyone jump into a 60 day cleanse. That’s pretty extreme. But 5 days is enough to be do-able for most people and just long enough to really detox the body. So I’m super excited to be partnering with Scott Groth, The Chubby Cook, on monthly 5-day juice cleanses. Scott is preparing the juices so it’ll be easy peasy for all participants. I’ll be providing nutritional support and guidance.
What could your transformaion look like? We’ll be starting the first cleanse on Monday, Jan 9th with an intro meeting preceding on the 6th. Shoot me an email if you’re interested at email@example.com. Hope to see you there!

Would you like to have more energy, better digestions, clearer skin and eyes, and develop a profound and deepened awareness of your personal power and the effect you have in the world? If so, join me and Cleveland Yoga for an upcoming 21-day Cleanse, based on the book Quantum Wellness by Kathy Freston. If you’re looking for a way to jump-start your health and happiness in 2011, I can’t think of a better way to do it.
This cleanse is not a harsh diet or detox that requires you to deprive yourself of sufficient calories or food with taste. Rather, it simply asks that for 21 days you forgo artificial stimulants or suppressants (caffeine and alcohol) and avoid foods that are difficult for the body to digest. By doing this, the body is given a chance to relax and re-charge, settling into its own natural equilibrium. You are almost guaranteed to experience a surge in sustained energy throughout the day, better digestion, increased concentration and mental clarity, and potential for many other benefits. Weight loss will almost certainly occur, but really isn’t the focus. You can and should eat plenty.
For more information and to sign up, go to Cleveland Yoga. This 21-day program is a total steal, at $55 plus the cost of the book. It includes all the support you’ll need with in-person group meetings, shopping lists, recipes, tips, and ample opportunities to ask questions and share your progress with others. Can’t wait to see you there!
