You are toxic. And we live in a dirty world. I don’t care if you eat organic, buy local, bathe in all-natural suds, and clean with only water and vinegar. The truth of the matter is that we are constantly bombarded on a daily basis by man-made chemicals, artificial fragrances, and a bunch of other toxins that are not fit for human consumption. While we luckily have organs of detoxification that are meant for removing these harmful substances from our bodies, they can only do so much! They need help and you can give it to them!
Detoxification is a normal process within the body as it neutralizes and eliminates toxins through the major organs such as our colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin.
According to many healing experts, detoxification through special cleansing programs may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and candida. Our chemical-laden diet, with an overabundance of animal protein, too much saturated fat and too much caffeine and alcohol radically alters our internal ecosystem. However even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore your immune system and protect yourself against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease bearing bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Whenever I work with clients that are new to cleansing, we always start slowly. You don’t want to detoxify too fast!
I’ve created a simple 3 Day Detox that fits into almost anyone’s lifestyle! Start today as today is the perfect time to start!

Upon Waking – Lemon Ginger Tea
- 12 ounces water
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 inch piece of ginger
First thing in the morning, get yourself a glass of water (cold, warm or hot is fine) that you can squeeze the juice of one lemon into. Grate 1/2 inch piece of ginger root into the tea.
Ginger is a powerful detoxifier that helps to kick-start the metabolism. Lemon helps to support the liver in its detoxification efforts. Also, technically you’ve been fasting all night while sleeping and you are dehydrated! This drink not only hydrates your body, it helps to stimulate the bowels.
