Be Gutsy: Holistic Spring Cleanse Program for your body, mind and spirit.

March 15, 2023

As the snow melts and the sun brings with it longer and warmer days, our bodies – sleepy and stiff, wake up from the winter months. Many people during this time experience exhaustion, bloating, indigestion and brain fog. This program has been developed to give your body and mind the tools to heal naturally so you can feel energized, renewed and optimized for the coming season.
Spring is a time for renewal, regeneration and growth. In with the old and out with the new. It’s the ideal time to nourish our bodies and minds and support the natural detoxification process – physical, mental and emotional. We are not focused on weight loss, but this program will put you on the right track to feeling good in your body and accomplishing whatever health goals you may have.

Over the 4 weeks of this Naturopathic led gut-mind cleanse you will receive:

  • Weekly virtual meetings to discuss holistic cleansing, gut health and mindfulness meditation.
  • Information about the organs of detoxification and how the gastrointestinal system works, and the connection between the gut, mind and hormones.
  • An easy-to-follow dietary plan to support detoxification pathways and promote gut health.
  • Weekly recipes that will include 1 vegetarian, 1 meat, and 1 fish meal along with breakfast and snacks.
  • A journal with daily prompts to help motivate you throughout the month
  • Weekly meditation tracks to slow down the mind and help you to connect inwards
  • A virtual hub to join so that you can be supported and encouraged by your peers in the program.
