Treat your liver and gut to a vacation!

Functional Medicine, Health and Wellness Jan 07, 2011 No Comments

Have you ever had a boss who was a taskmaster, a slave driver, and a demanding soul who cared only about production?  Overtime, anytime, all the time, boundaries pushed, exhaustion sets in. You aren’t efficient anymore, you’re chronically tired, and the joy of living fades to gray.

Chances are high that your liver and GI tract are exhausted after the holidays.  The food, the wine, the dessert(s!), more food, more wine, leftovers (it’s always better the next day, isn’t it?), mimosas, more leftovers, and then it’s off to Aunt Jenny’s house to start all over again – for the fourth time.  Ugh.

Remember how you wished that your boss would appreciate your hard work and your value to the company? Just a little time off and you could be twice as productive. Well, your liver and GI tract would like some understanding as well! They have been working overtime and they need a vacation!

Your liver is the critical workhorse for metabolism and detoxification. Between food, alcohol, medications, supplements and energy production, it has a very long to-do list that is never ending. Your GI tract is a core component to your immune function. Most of us don’t think about how much our GI tract and what we eat influences our body’s natural ability to heal itself and fight off bacteria, viruses and cancer cells.  It’s critical!

Come and find out how to give your liver and GI tract the vacation it deserves! I will go over many great “vacation” packages, offering a 9, 14 or 21 day cleanse options to fit your season of life and get you results!

Best of all, your liver and gut will be smiling (they like to go on vacation together) after their wonderful “spa vacation”. They will feel valued and be so happy that your body will definitely become a “fat burning machine”.

RSVP now for my workshop entitled “The 5 secrets to making your body a fat burning machine” on

As a volunteer for the Foundation for Wellness Professionals, I am not charging for this workshop. I do ask that you would RSVP my Monday 1-10-11 at 6 pm, because the food is being provided by My Fit Foods and Jamba Juice. There will even be give-aways, and if you bring a friend, you will get an extra entry for the give-aways! How much better can it get?  You will be so glad you did!
