What is the 12 Day Cleanse?
The 12 Day Cleanse is a reboot for your insides. It is an opportunity for you to come together with a group and participate in 12 days of clean eating and mindful body practices. For the 12 days you will have daily work provided to you on a password protected page on my website. You will be part of a private Facebook page with your group. You will have access to help and guidance from me everyday for 12 days. You will learn how to shop for healthy food. You will re-learn how to get back in your kitchen and cook again. You will learn about how certain things in your life are affecting your health and wellness. You will learn how to take care of yourself again. You will get to do all of this from the comfort of your home, but with the support of a group. You will never be alone.
Will there be a shopping list provided for the cleanse?
Yes, you will be provided with a shopping list for the cleanse. You do not need to purchase everything on the list. The list is there for you to choose from the many options that are cleanse approved foods. I would encourage you to try foods that are a bit out of your comfort zone.
Will there be day by day meal plans provided on the cleanse?
I will provide you with a sample day by day meal guide. It is a very basic guide. Some people find that it works just fine for them. throughout the cleanse I will share recipes with you on the private Facebook page. There are also bonus recipes that are in the first module for you to play around with during the cleanse. My hope is that you learn to get back in the kitchen during the 12 days, and learn how to cook your own recipes with the new food you are learning to love.
I am not a vegan or vegetarian, can I still do the cleanse?
Absolutely, the cleanse is geared towards being a plant-based cleanse for 12 days, but if you are meat eater there is an alternate plan provided. This cleanse will work for anybody.
Can I drink coffee or black tea on the cleanse?
No, sadly you can not. Have no fear you can do it. I promise. This is the most powerful craving that people overcome while on the cleanse. It may be the hardest to overcome but you will be amazed at how good you feel on the other side.
Can I have good quality dark chocolate on the cleanse.
No, chocolate is a no no too. I want to help you overcome all addictions to caffeine and sugar. Chocolate has both of these. You will find other ways to get your sweet fix in during the 12 days, I promise.
Can I eat grains on the cleanse?
Yes, you can absolutely eat grains on the cleanse. You can not eat any white grains, only whole grains. That being said if you can go the 12 days without grains that would be an amazing experience for you. I am a big believer in grains being extremely inflammatory for the body. This cleanse is all about getting rid of inflammation. It is your choice. I do ask that you try and challenge yourself just a bit during the 12 days.
Will I lose weight on the cleanse?
That is a question that is more difficult to answer. The majority of people who are on the cleanse do lose weight anywhere from 5-10 pounds. This varies for everybody. What you put in is what you get out. The purpose of the cleanse is to get healthy again, a side effect or benefit from that is losing weight. I have not had anybody not lose weight, but I can’t make a guarantee.
Can I still take any medications I take on a regular basis?
Absolutely, you must continue any medication protocol you are on. Unless directed by a doctor never stop taking prescribed medication.
- Always consult your doctor before starting a new health protocol.
Can I do the cleanse if I am pregnant or nursing?
Absolutely, you can do the cleanse if you are pregnant or nursing. This would be the most amazing experience for your body, and if you are nursing, for your baby too. You will not be ingesting anything that would be dangerous. In fact you would be eliminating many of the things that would not be nutritious for your body and replacing it with nutrient dense and wholesome foods.
- As always when you are pregnant or nursing please consult you physician when embarking on any new health protocol.
Will this be a juice fast?
No, this is not a juice fast. I do provide guidance that you do a green juice everyday, however this is completely your choice. You will not be fasting on this cleanse at all. This cleanse is about abundance, and not deprivation. You will eat until you are full. You will eat when you are hungry and not eat when you aren’t. You will be amazed at just how natural this becomes to you.
Will I need a blender or a juicer to do the cleanse?
No, you can absolutely do the cleanse without any fancy equipment. If you have a knife and a cutting board you will be just fine. If you are unable to do the juice then it is absolutely ok to go ahead and just eat your vegetables. My cleanse is all about inclusion. It is an experience that everybody can participate in, no matter what your kitchen is like.
Will I have access to your help during the 12 days?
I am available all 12 days to answer any questions, help guide you and share recipes and tips with you. I am on the Facebook page everyday, I am also available by email. You will also have the support of your fellow members.
Is the Facebook page private?
The Facebook page is entirely private. It is a place for support and encouragement and good old-fashioned sharing. Nobody can see what is on there other than your fellow cleanse members. This is a great and unique tool to help keep you on track.
What makes your cleanse different from others out there?
Many cleanses that are online are not facilitated in the same manner as my 12 day cleanse. During my cleanse you will have real-time access to not only me but your other group members. Not many cleanses offer that. Many offer you the material and then you are on your own. One of the many reasons that my cleanses are so successful is because of the intimate support you get day by day, you are not left to just tread water all by yourself. Here you feel like you are part of something very special. The group will always remain on Facebook for you to remain in contact with your new friends. It is like having your own personal health coach for 12 days. That is a very special experience. I promise.
Can I give the cleanse to my friend if I can’t do it?
No, all cleanses are non transferable.
Can I get a refund if I sign up and then are unable to complete the cleanse?
No, there are no refunds on the 12 Day Cleanse.
