This week long program is best for those who are looking for a detox to address a bad diet, a bad mindset and bad eating habits. Don't worry! This detox is not about drinking juice and herbal tea only for 7 days! I have packed this course with real food (but clean) recipes plus the information that you need to clean up your diet and reset both your mind & body including:
- 7 day meal plan
- Shopping list for everything you will need
- Mindfulness guidance
- Conscious eating motivations
- Advice on incorporating movement
This program also includes lifetime membership and participation in our private detox Facebook group for ongoing support as you go through the program and after the program should you fall back to some destructive patterns. You will see as you look at the overview of the program that each day has a specific mind-body theme as you go throughout the detox.
Why should you participate?
Let's face it---most humans are actually NOT perfect when it comes to their diet and lifestyle. Shocking I know! Even though most of us have good intentions the reality is sometimes we just give into the indulgent spirit and go a little far down the pathway of not really paying attention to either our mind or our bodies. This detox is not about achieving perfection but about resetting your path to allow you to start to occupy a healthier space step by step. By the end of the week you should feel clearer, cleaner and more in touch with your mind-body connection.
What makes this detox different?
Let's face it. These days you can find a detox program just about anywhere! A simple Google search will lead down any number of paths to clean your body in any number of ways! But most programs either have standards that are so strict that you would quit in 6 hours or they focus totally on telling you to eat differently without actually addressing habit formation and reversal. This program is about doing a realistic clean up of not just your diet but your mind's relationship with health and food as well. In addition to providing specific steps (instead of just general food groups) you will find that each day also has a different mind-body focus as well. This 7 day detox isn't just about cleaning your body but also clearing your mind.

A Note From Our Founder Dr. Kourtney:
I have had education in multiple disciplines in addition to my traditional Ob/Gyn background that has opened my perspective on the difference between disease "maintenance" (which unfortunately is most often delivered in the traditional medical model) and true wellness. After opening my private practice over a decade ago I pursued my national certification as a menopause specialist which opened my eyes more about the range of hormonal dysfunction that can occur in women. From that understanding I described to pursue additional training in plant based nutrition through T. Colin Campbell. After that I dug deeper by receiving education in Ayurveda in the Integrative Ayurveda Health Professionals Program at the Maharishi Ayurveda Institute which broaden my herbal knowledge. I pursued this interest more in the Foundations of Herbal Medicine course from Dr Tieraona Low Dog M.D. After all of this education I had a very good grasp in integrative and holistic health and decide to develop further skills in discovering how to approach disease patterns from a root cause approach with training from The Institute of Functional Medicine. Currently I am a member of various organizations including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, North American Menopause Society, Texas Medical Association, The American Herbalist Guild and the Institute of Functional Medicine. It is this background that allows me to fully embrace the perspective that true wellness naturally develops as a result of living a life that optimizes the best of ancient holistic traditions including those from the Ayurvedic, Eastern, and Herbal medical traditions as well as Western medical principles and knowledge. It is from this place that I believe that health is truly optimized. It is here that I have found that even some of the most challenging chronic disease states will respond. It is with the mission of fundamentally changing health that this course was developed to share this knowledge with you.
