The ultimate goal of the food-based approach outlined in The Body Tune-up is not to "cleanse". The goal is to provide your body with much-needed nourishment and assist your innate ability to rejuvenate from within. Over the past fifteen years, I have seen people reduce and in many cases resolves the following complaints using the Body Tune-up approach:
post nasal drip/chronic sore throat
weight loss resistance
chronic skin issues
Yes, the cleansing process includes releasing unwanted waste and toxins and old habits that are not serving your highest good. However, it is my hope your experience with food-based cleansing will be just a stepping-stone to better support your health through nutrient-dense foods in daily meals for the rest of your life.
Working as a naturopath for fifteen years, I have seen amazing transformations people experience using a food-based approach. In the beginning of my career, my focus was guiding people through food-based cleanses. After this period, I saw limitations and drawbacks of cleansing. I turned to professional trainings in functional medicine to identify ways to help someone who health problems were not easily resolved by food-based cleansing, or who were not able to cleanse. Today, I share this combination of healing through food and functional medicine as the basis of my practice. I approach food-based cleansing gently with a scientific approach. I invite you to pre-order my new book The Body Tune-up. Separate Body Tune-up kits that include additional supplements to enhance the cleansing are now available as well. You can now do the Body Tune-up yourself with the kit!
