Who is it for?

This is a gentle, simple and grounded program appropriate for most people.  It is allergy friendly and anti-inflammatory.  This detox is designed for all types of eaters including raw, vegetarian, paleo and primal.  This is a perfect detox for beginners too!

Why Detox?

Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Unfortunately today, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemicalized diet with too much animal protein, processed foods and sugars, too much saturated and trans fats, too much caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem.

Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response.  Can you believe that some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of waste?  Wow!

Detoxification through special cleansing diets and plant based whole foods is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and chronic fatigue. However, even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites.

Do you experience any of the following signs of toxicity?

  • Headaches
  • Low energy or lack of vitality
  • Food cravings or binges
  • Constipation or digestive challenges
  • Chronic Illness
  • Eczema or other skin conditions
  • Irritability or Moodiness
  • Insomnia
  • Bloating
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Chronic Yeast Infections
  • Cancer or other degenerative disease
  • Excess weight

What is it?

This detox is a 7 day guided program of eating clean, real, whole foods that will enable your body to take a break and  get back on track.  This program will kick start your metabolism, boost energy and immunity, shed unwanted weight, improve digestion, release toxins, and teach you how to create simple and easy meals for a lifetime.  You can participate from anywhere on your own time!

Here’s What People are Saying About the Program:
The detox program was a way for me to jump into a lifestyle of healthy eating and get off the cycle of yo yo dieting. I have wanted to eliminate processed foods and cut out my cravings for breads, cheese and sweets without feeling deprived.
This detox not only showed me in detail, how to clean out my refrigerator and cabinets to eliminate unnecessary foods, but it gave me a detailed grocery list, including the spices to get my shelves fully stocked. Now, I can go shopping, replace my fresh veggies, fruits, and limited amounts of protein with ease.  I feel amazing.  I was sure I would crave breads, salty snacks or sweets….But, I do not…From the very first day, I never felt deprived or hungry.  The fresh fruit smoothies, and the wonderful salads somehow have taken  my cravings away.  My new best friends for sweets are fresh coconut water over ice or an apple pie smoothie, when made ahead of time with chia seeds, the smoothie turns into pudding.  I snack on fresh berries or veggies with hummus if I am hungry, I plan and make my food in the morning and have it ready to eat whenever my body asks for food.  I feel like I am doing something good for myself and plan to continue eating this way as a lifestyle.
-Kathy, Encinitas

I really enjoyed it! I started at 211 lbs and this morning I am at 202.8. Since doing the Detox I have had more energy and able to do cardio every morning and resistance training M-F during my lunches.  I feel amazing! I will most likely continue with the lemon elixir and throw in some smoothies and many more of the delicious recipes on a daily basis.
-David, San Diego

Before starting the Spring Forward Detox, my diet was inconsistent  and out of balance  I felt weighed down and bloated even though I wasn’t eating vast quantities of food. Cravings for sugar laden foods was a daily battle, usually with the cravings winning.  I ate well beyond the point of feeling full but didn’t feel satisfied.  Being on the Spring Forward Detox helped reset my food cravings.  It is amazing how nourished and vital my body feels now that I am eating an amazing array of fresh whole foods.  I’ve also learned to use new and unfamiliar ingredients like sun butter and almond milk. The shopping list proved very helpful in getting my pantry and fridge stocked with everything I needed and the meal plans are super easy to follow and delicious!  My skin looks better, my waistline has slimmed down and I feel nourished and well cared for from the inside out!  Thank you Drew for the gift of the Spring Forward Detox plan!  Warm Regards, Lori

I decided to join the Spring Forward Detox Program because I wanted to give my body a healthy change and a break from unnecessary foods. Being anewbie with detox programs I thought it’d be difficult to give up processed carbs, caffeine and sugars for 2 weeks but it was quite easy.  It helped that  I was given a shopping list, several delicious recipes to follow (specially the morning smoothies!!) & the support from Drew’s daily e-mails. I loved discovering new flavors with healthier ingredients to satisfy my hunger without feeling deprived. I was also very energetic and throughout the day & slept great at night. This program really helped me realize that taking charge of your health can be easy, fun, & delicious!!  I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to develop healthy habits & making a change that your body will appreciate.
-Marissa, San Diego

Thank you so much for inviting us to this program.  I feel I got great results and I will look forward to see what you have in store for summer time.  I have never tried a detox diet in my life.  I signed up for this detox program for one purpose only; To rid all the toxins in my body from processed foods. Leaving this program I was hoping to start living a healthier lifestyle.  I will tell you what, I got much more than I expected.  I now have much more energy, I can focus better at work, I don’t feel as sluggish as I usually did, I get many compliments about looking thinner, and I sleep like a baby at night. If you want any of these results I suggest you try this detox program.  It only takes about two weeks from the pre-detox to post-detox.  Now I feel completely re-energized in body and mind. I am now off the detox and I am planning on keeping a healthy diet.
-Randy, San Diego

I’m impressed with myself too…hahaha. But seriously this experience has been great so far and is helping me create new eating habits!  I have never enjoyed eating this healthy before. A few flavors are a first to me and I’m learning that Tahini is my new best friend :)
