 This detox program is food-based, meaning food is our tool, our medicine. How we use that tool and understand it makes this a holistic approach to detoxification.  Careful detoxification, using seasonally appropriate foods, allows us to rid our bodies of toxins collected from our diets, biological processes and environment while also restoring the proper flow of energy, providing essential nutrients and bringing us into balance with our environment.

Plus, food tastes good and it's fun. Over the 4 weeks of this program you’ll experience a wondrous variety of flavors, colors, and energetic properties in foods that provide high quality protein, complex carbohydrates and essential fats. You'll learn how light and leafy vegetables assist your body's organs of purification, improving their function. You'll enjoy foods with naturally bitter and sour flavors, since these naturally assist the organs such as the liver, gallbladder and small intestines. Most importantly we’ll discover foods, flavors, feelings and friends we never could have imagined.
