I learned so much in understanding how to read my body in a totally new way. It has been such an incredible experience. I did not anticipate getting all of this out of this. It's been life-changing!

If so, I bet some of these are also true..

What Is An Ayurvedic Cleanse?
Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle in order to live a purposeful life. Cleansing the body and mind is part of this. Generally Ayurveda recommends cleansing with the change of the winter to spring season and summer to fall, but since a lot of us are dealing with health issues all year round, cleansing can be done at any time of the year.
Nowadays we no longer live in alignment with the seasons and our diets might look the same all year round, and so does our work and life schedule. This can cause physical and mental problems and we start to see more and more disease symptoms and feel out of balance.
If you recognize this, then a cleanse is what you need! An Ayurveda cleanse is a 7-day program where you eat easy-to-digest (lighter) foods and focus on resting and rejuvenating the body. The idea is to move build-up toxins from the body into the GI tract to release them through your waste products.
An Ayurveda cleanse is mild and gentle, not harsh on the body. You will still eat solid foods and not feel hungry or physically unwell. You can still go to work and go about your daily life. It is recommended to slow down during this week and have more time for rest and reflection.
"The cleanse felt like an 'at-home retreat' for me. A great way to reset my diet and lifestyle habits. I felt incredible after the seven days!"
Jay Hodgson, University Music Professor, Ontario
Benefits of An Ayurvedic Cleanse
Motivation to get back into a routine with eating, movement (exercise, yoga), connecting to nature, sleep, self-care rituals, etc.
A healthy, sustainable, and lasting start to weight loss.
Renewed energy and motivation for the future.
Improved digestion and regular elimination.
Better quality sleep.
Improved skin and hair.
Mental and emotional clarity.
Calm nervous system (reduced stress).
A cleanse is not a magic pill. It will not make you lose 20 pounds and have ripped abs after a week. Again, it is really to get you on the trajectory towards creating a healthy diet and lifestyle and reducing disease symptoms. In this week you will gain a better understanding of the workings of Ayurveda which will give you back autonomy of your health.
"It has been amazing, such an educational journey. The meet-ups and the warm and supportive community have been a huge part of my success. I really felt supported by everyone".

"This program exceeded all expectations. I signed up to help break some habits related to food and snacking and what I got was a total mind, body, and spiritual reset PLUS a full education on digestion and mind-blowing Ayurvedic topics.
First off, the meals were amazing and I never felt hungry. About halfway through the program, I woke up in the morning with more energy than I had in months. I also noticed that the amount I've been eating post-program is significantly less and the foods I'm drawn to are lighter and less processed.
I have zero interest in eating anything refined or full of sugar. After this program, I feel so much more in touch with my intuition, true hunger, and body. Thank you, Christa!"
— Samantha Bove, Founder ZBA, California
"Before the cleanse, I struggled with skin issues, irregular elimination, and food sensitivities.
The cleanse encouraged me to take time for myself and I felt supported by the community to stick to my commitment.
The week felt very nourishing. The meals were great and it taught me how to cook for my constitution (dosha).
After the cleanse I noticed clearer skin and better digestion and elimination. I understand better now which foods are healthy for me and which aren't.
Christa offered a lot of personal support during the cleanse which was so helpful. I would absolutely recommend anyone to do a cleanse. "
— Lizzie Shutt, Intuitive Living Coach, Hawaii
"Before this cleanse, I was struggling to eat regularly, had strong sugar cravings, struggled with daily elimination and I experienced anxiety and confusion about food and eating.
One of my biggest wins is that I managed to cook three meals a day for myself. I stuck to the recommended meal schedule and my elimination improved quickly.
I loved Christa’s ground-breaking perspectives on food, it had a profound impact on my thoughts and beliefs about food and improved my relationship with eating tremendously.
Christa created an incredibly safe community, I was encouraged to share my experience which was a big part of my success."
— Julia Hintersteiner, Student, Austria
I have participated in other programs from Christa and always had great success. Before this cleanse, I struggled with poor sleep habits, excess weight, and sluggishness, plus too much evening snacking. Since the cleanse I now have a regular sleep routine, am eating only three meals a day, and exercise regularly.
I feel my energy level has also improved and my digestion is better. I am finally understanding ways to compensate for my dosha being out of balance.
I loved being in community and having a detailed manual to follow with lots of great tips and recipes. The Zoom meetings were an excellent way for the participants to connect, share and encourage one another.
My experience was worthwhile, enjoyable, and beneficial. I highly recommend this program!!!!
