Detox is vital in this toxic world.
For so many years I suffered from agonising IBS which led to stomach cramps and bloating.
I spent a lot of my time trying to figure out how to improve my digestion.
I focused simply on digestion because I do believe that good digestion leads to a healthy life.

I did all kinds of special IBS and digestion diets and ate loads of fibrous foods – and none of it worked.
My IBS remained just as bad as it ever was.
But then one day I realised that in order to have good digestion, you must be detoxing properly.
The light went off in my head.
Detox for a better digestion because good digestion leads to less inflammation and less inflammation leads to less disease in this world.
Let me say it again: decrease the inflammation and prevent disease.
Hippocrates said it best, “All disease begins in the gut”
So, if this is true and disease begins in the gut, aka your digestive system, then having a healthy & strong digestion is key.
But let me share one secret…
When the body is toxic, your digestive system is weak. So even if you eat “clean” and only buy organic and hormone-free foods, you are still breathing toxicity in this world.
We live, eat, and breathe toxicity everyday. Look around your home and think of the paint on the walls, the rugs, the pesticides sprayed on your green grass, the exterminator to get rid of the bugs, and even if you are chemical-free in your home, is your makeup chemical-free?
Even if you are totally chemical-free and using make up that is aluminum-free plus other non-toxic chemicals, we are still living and that means eating, breathing, and sleeping in a toxic environment.
Unless you feel that are ready to live in a bubble or a hyperbaric chamber, then it is time to wake up to what I call “daily detox”.
Now detox is not a curse word or anything to be scared about; instead, it is exciting to think about your body & cells actually functioning.
I do not tell people detox has to be living on juices, water only, smoothies (Green Thickies), or just salad or soup.
Detox is about lessening the toxic load in your body. As I say, “Taking out the trash.”
See, when we are toxic our body cannot perform its job.
The body cannot metabolize properly, detox properly, absorb nutrients and minerals, or stay hydrated.
It is a vicious cycle.
See detox is necessary to be healthy, happy, & free of disease.
We all have some low level inflammation because, again, we breathe but, even more, so we stress in this busy world.
So, every time we stress, we create acid in our body, and our body is forced to pull mineral to buffer the acid waste, and then our liver, lymph, and kidneys begin to work hard to filter out the toxic load but what happens when the body is tired and clogged.
When your digestive system is not working and cannot break down these foods, it cannot focus on getting RID of TOXINS, and that means you cannot get rid of bloat and fat and skin breakouts and all that junk that keeps you tired.
TOXINS => INFLAMMATION => WEAK DIGESTION =>
Do you suffer from any of the following?
- Difficult weight management
- Low energy
- Low sex drive
- Bad skin
If you answered yes to any of the above, it could be that your body is crying out for a detox.
By detoxing, YOU will improve digestion and therefore free your body of inflammation and toxins.
The foundation of this detox is NOT to ever feel deprived or starved.
The goal is to help YOU do what I have learned to do in my own life: learn how to EAT CLEAN and learn what foods are IRRITATING your body.
Eating clean is a way of life, not a diet.
So, we begin to eat whole foods that promote detox in a safe and natural way.
No, you do not have to only drink juices, or soups, or smoothies (Green Thickies), or go on a grapefruit-eating-only diet; instead, you need to eat foods that are not irritating your digestive system and clogging it up.
Is this making sense?
10 tips for staying healthy and detoxing naturally
- Upon waking, drink warm or room water with lemon and add a dash of cinnamon or cayenne.
- Start your day by being positive. Find a daily affirmation that gets you fired up. I love Louise Hay, and, Gabrielle Bernstein.
- Try getting quiet without yourself, even just for one minute, and say, “I release what does not serve me.” Hold your heart as you say this out loud and scream it if you want. Own that power.
- Drink fresh, green juices or make your own green juice with 1 tbsp chlorophyll and lemon and lime and water.
- Aim for one meal that is super easy on your digestion per day. Try a complete meal smoothie (Green Thickie), or soup to give that digestion a rest.
- Get moving & shaking. Yes, exercise is one of the best ways to detox your body.
- Drink plenty of water and add lemon, lime, or grapefruit to flush the toxicity.
- Skin brushing is my favorite way to support the liver and get rid of those toxins
- Tongue Brushing.
- BE Happy & grateful for life.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
