This sounds so good. I’m always looking for ways and recipes that can help us detoxify our bodies and homes for us and our clients. When we look at your list of symptoms, every client we’ve had was experiencing many of these. That’s why we always emphasize the importance of detoxifying, it should be a daily part of every wellness plan. Thank you for sharing…

I think it is important for people to understand that detoxing has changed a great deal from what it once was. Given that we are all constantly exposed to thousands of environmental toxins we should all be detoxing regularly. That does not mean some crazy juice cleanse. It can be as simple as eating Whole Foods (nothing that has been processed). I love seeing my clients reactions after detoxing. They are truly amazed by how dramatic a difference a detox can make. Just give it 30 days and it is enough to create a whole new you!
