Then this detox program is right for YOU!

Have you heard about detox but turned off by the fear of being deprived of real food?  There are many detox programs and pills on the market today that promise quick weight loss, and many of them are unsafe and unable to maintain.  This detox is NOT a weight loss gimmick or a juice cleanse. You will be eating REAL food. This detox program is gentle, safe and easy to do while continuing regular activities.  There are different levels for those who are new to healthy eating as well as those who are more experienced.

Why is this detox program different?

Krystal incorporates stress management techniques, lifestyle improvements, discussion of spiritual and emotional aspects of detoxification and supportive guidance toward realistic goals.  This detox is a holistic approach, focusing on diet, lifestyle, connection, balance & love.  We ponder questions, such as: “What is my purpose? What are my goals? What is most important to me in my life? I also incorporate professional quality supplements that gently cleanse, heal, nourish & support the body through a detox.

Why detox?

Our ancestors used detox as a time-honored tradition, but today it’s a necessity.  In our modern world, we are bombarded by more toxins than our ancestors yet do not take the time to slow down, eliminate & rejuvenate our bodies and minds.  Our bodies naturally detox when we support our bodily processes.  However, most of us eat a Standard American Diet consisting of processed & fast foods, hydrogenated oils, MSG, sugar, alcohol & caffeine, never stopping to smell the roses, pushing ourselves to our limits, sanitizing our environments with toxic chemicals, using toxic body products, skincare, makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, consuming products wrapped in plastics and synthetics, bathing and drinking tap water full of fluoride and chlorine that disrupt the thyroid and gut, taking pharmaceuticals & antibiotics that kill healthy gut bacteria, leaving us depleted, overwhelmed, malnourished, overweight, tired, irritable & achy.

We are exposed to thousands of toxic chemicals, heavy metals and other poisons from our air, water and food every day.   Every year we drop 90 million pounds of pesticides!  Every American has 400-700 different toxins in their bodies.  Babies today are born with at least 50 different toxins in their bodies.  Scary I know! This isn’t to scare you; it’s to educate you on the realities of our modern world and emphasize the importance of self-care.

Detoxification helps the body work more efficiently.  We need to support our bodies through periodic detoxification, whole-food nutrition, movement, light, air, clean water,  relaxation, connection and creating a positive relationship with yourself & others to keep our bodies and minds healthy, clear and strong.

In Chinese medicine, the liver moves chi (energy) through the body. When the liver is congested and the chi isn’t flowing; we get symptoms such as, headaches, fatigue, weight gain, irritability, frustration, mood swings, depression, PMS, chronic pain and a “stuck” feeling. The liver is considered the home of the soul and our life’s purpose, so we want to heal and nourish the liver!

What is a toxin & why should I be concerned with them?

A toxin is any substance that creates irritating and/or harmful effects in our body, undermines our state of wellness and stresses our normal biochemical functions.  Toxins poison our bodies, hasten tissue damage, and put strain on the liver.  Some symptoms of liver overload are fatigue, easy bruising, swelling of the legs, headaches, hormone imbalances such as PMS and difficulty with menopause, digestive problems, sensitivities to chemicals, and an inability to tolerate medications (just to name a few!).  Once the liver is overloaded, all of the other systems in the body are affected.  Toxins take their toll on the gut, brain, immune system and so on.  Symptoms such as brain fog, anxiety, depression, eczema, autoimmune disorders, and weight gain can all be contributed to toxins and what we in the holistic health care field call “leaky gut.”  By eliminating toxic food, water and chemicals, and healing the body through gentle detox, movement, stress relief and an anti-inflammatory diet; we allow our bodies to restore and work optimally creating harmony and balance within.

TheVitalMama Transform Kit Contains ($100):

Clear Response Detox Protein Powder: This exceptionally gentle cleansing formulation is designed specifically to promote your body’s innate ability to purify itself through the use of botanicals, extracts and a detoxification- specific amino acid combination. Each component was included for its known supportive action(s), both within the gastrointestinal system and on phase I and phase II detoxification of the liver. Greenselect Phytosome™, the gold standard of green tea extracts, demonstrates superior absorption. Maximum Antioxidant Activity: Data from a study of 24 healthy females ingesting Greenselect Phytosome™ over a six week period found the Greenselect® group experienced significant increases in the total antioxidant activity (TAA), plasma concentration and radical antioxidant parameter (TRAP) compared to control subjects.

Amino DTox capsules This product will gently upregulate all conjugation pathways (jumpstart the liver!) resulting in excretion of toxins without mobilizing more oxidized toxic intermediates in the body from body fat stores.

When considering supplement cost, remember that the Detox Kit includes meal replacements, so you will be saving on your grocery bill, as well as eliminating costs for coffee, alcohol, pastries, eating out, etc.

For instance, the average person spends $20 a week on coffee and $37/week on lunch alone. That’s $114 on lunch and coffee (or pastries, snacks), which you won’t be consuming on this detox. You will most likely SAVE money!
