It’s been a little while since the last cleanse as I’ve been involved in other nutrition projects, but now I’m pushing forward with the very clear aim of boosting the wellbeing of women who often – whilst focussing on looking after others and spinning many plates – forget to look after themselves. Self- care starts to slip: we often fall into bad habits with food and drink, get a bit lapse with exercise or we may over-exercise, possibly we sleep badly due to too much caffeine/sugar- our well-being can easily fall by the way-side.
I’m very excited to have been invited onto a cleanse retreat abroad in late May. It’s going to be a gorgeous week of simple foods, sun-bathing, yoga, net-working, relaxation …. And I’ll be presenting my Longevity Workshop there too.
The aim is that next time I go I’d like to take some regular cleanser participants with me and I’ll talk through how this will work at the first cleanse meet.
For this week in May – 11th – 19th – I’m inviting you to come along and join me for a cleansing week of delicious eating with a focus on Superfoods. This is one of my lecture topics for The College of Naturopathic Medicine which I presented earlier this month. I took along with me a great range of Superfoods from the awesome Acai berry, to Cacao, Chlorella, Lucuma and Maca to the more traditional turmeric, blueberries and tomatoes. We discussed the various uses of these which include supporting detoxification, improving skin quality and boosting energy levels.
During the first session I will be matching up clients’ signs and symptoms to a relevant superfood which can then be used throughout the weeks cleansing along with a week of superfood recipes. These will be practical and simple to include into the food plan. 3 meals per day is a must – Hunger is not allowed!!
We will be trying lots of shots and smoothie tasters of a variety of superfood blends and discussing why they are a useful. Clients will then follow a 7 day food plan. Support will be provided by a closed Facebook Group page for posting of recipes and advice. I’ll be posting daily.
Daily exercise is encouraged and this FB page can be used to organise meet ups for this purpose.
We will meet on Friday 19th May to discuss results and to consider how we can keep some cleanse principles in our daily routine.
Both meet ups will take place at The Sussex Osteopath and Complementary health Clinic, Hurstpierpoint
