As summer winds down and the cooler, shorter days of fall arrive, it is a time to think about transitions. Periods of change can create opportunities to explore new ideas and incorporate new habits into our lives.
Many patients ask for my opinions regarding detoxes, cleanses, and fasting. Fasting is a feature of many cultural and spiritual traditions. It was a fact of life (and still is, in many parts of the world) during times of food scarcity. Whether we choose an extreme water fast, or a more gentle approach, cleansing can be a way to become more mindful of our daily choices – what we eat, how much time we devote to self-care, our thought patterns.
I will be leading a one-week gentle cleanse during late October / early November. (Don't worry, it is not designed to be a "colon blow" requiring multiple trips to the bathroom... ;) Exact dates TBD. It will include an anti-inflammatory diet, specific therapies to promote our own metabolic detoxification processes, and daily self-care. Support will be given throughout. This is a great way to “re-set” your body before the holidays and approach them with a toolbox of health-promoting habits. If you are interested, please reply to this email, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working together!
