Many of you might remember the 10-day group detox that Spark! launched last January.  Well, we’re baaaack!

By popular demand, we’ve brought our cleanse back this spring. We’re teaming up with Gena Hamshaw of Choosing Raw again, and we’ll be leading the cleanse May 10 – May 19.

Why cleanse in the spring?

During the winter, you probably ate heavier, fattier foods, ate fewer fruits and veggies, got less sleep than you needed, felt sluggish and less energetic than you would have liked to, received less sunshine than your body wanted, and wanted to hibernate and withdraw from the world.

Now that it’s springtime, your body is getting ready to shed excess weight and kick up its energy levels. Spring is the season of new life and new growth, of renewal and new beginnings. According to Chinese medicine, springtime is the season associated with our liver. Our cleanse assists your body in detoxing your liver and purifying your body to help you press the “reset button” on your metabolism and reducing chronic internal inflammation.

How is our detox different?

What’s different about our cleanse is that the focus is on real, whole foods and a shift to a healthier lifestyle. This is not a “fad” cleanse where you drink juice or lemonade every day. You’ll be EATING! And good food, at that! No starvation cleanse here. We also understand that everyone is different, which is why we’ve designed three unique cleanse levels since everyone has different goals and habits:

  • Level 1, led by Hadley, focuses on gently reducing inflammation in the body caused by hidden food allergies or sensitivities, as well as discovering what foods each person’s body does not tolerate well. By the end, participants will have more energy, feel lighter, and have a deeper understanding of how food affects their bodies. This cleanse is designed for those who have never done a detox before or who currently eat a diet high in meat, dairy, sugar, processed foods, and/or caffeine.  This level is also ideal for people who have busy lives and cannot devote a lot of time each day preparing meals.
  • Level 2, led by Andrea, takes cleansing one step further to help you reboot your metabolism by detoxing from common allergens and addictive foods, while adding several supplements along the way to help support your body for a deeper cleanse. Participants will boost energy levels and reduce toxic internal inflammation by taking a break from foods that are difficult for our systems to digest.  This is a great cleanse for those who already eat a moderately healthy diet and are ready to take their wellness, energy levels and metabolism to the next level.
  • Level 3, led by Gena, focuses on restoring the body’s alkalinity and on enhancing digestive health with the power of raw, plant based foods. It will be a user-friendly introduction to raw foods and how to implement them. Participants can opt for either a high-raw or a semi-raw program; both options are vegan. This is a perfect choice for those who have some familiarity with an all plant-based diet, but who are seeking to break lingering addictions to processed foods. It’s also a perfect option for those who have dabbled in raw foods and juicing, but need some guidance in maintaining consistency.
