As we move into Summer, it is the perfect time to cleanse our small intestine. Why? Our body has a a natural "clock" or biorhythm. The summer is when our heart and small intestine have the most dominance. In this cleanse, there are three focuses: clear out digestive system of waste, clear the sludge from the veins that go to the liver, and establish healthier gut lining, flora, and bowel movements. This cleanse can be done online, or meeting with the group on a weekly basis mostly for the 21 day duration. The first meeting is one week prior to get assessment information on each person. This is to customize the cleanse for each person. Every group cleanse we lead, based on this system of personalization receives phenomenal results. Inspired by this, we are now leading a group cleanses regularly. No raw food or juicing fanaticism. The main thing we learned was that customizing the cleanse to our individual needs was crucial and so interesting! Our bodies need different things at different times. This is the kind of support we can offer you during HEALTH ALKEMY'S 21 DAY CLEANSE! Through test assessments of your tongue, eyes, adrenal function, body type, symptoms, and goals we will find which cleansing protocol is perfect for YOU as you are right NOW! We have gathered together a broad spectrum of products and protocols from the best companies out there: Arise and Shine, Standard Process, Premier Research Labs and more!
