as the days for the New and Improved Spring Detox Program are just around the corner, I’ve been getting so much inspiration into the real reasons and benefits for doing (and teaching) this type of health and wellness skill. I’m feeling myself waking up with new commitment, refreshed connection to my mission to help others take ownership of their health.
Yes, living healthfully in this day and age is a set of particular skills. It’s also, many days, a riddle. When I see healthy lifestyles rewarded with cancer and misinformation pumped into the masses not just through advertising, but foundations, schools and training facilities, one might be tempted to deem the whole health quest thing a lost cause, a pointless expenditure of time, energy and money.
- Living healthfully doesn’t involve eating foods with ‘healthy’ written on the label. It means eating foods that don’t come with labels (and knowing what to do with them to make them taste good to you and your family).
- And once you learn that our real food has been weakened by depleted soil, polluted water, and stupid chemicals, you now must learn to become an activist
- Eating healthy probably means NOT following some experts health advice.
- And to live a healthy life, requires the ability to make those decisions and the faith and confidence to trust yourself when you make them.
And so, for me, in the face of any struggles or barriers I may perceive to running a business or reaching the right people, there really is no other choice than put myself out there and be available to help others learn the skills to improve their health. It’s what I was put here to do.
Learning the skill of a seasonal detox is important now, but it will become necessity as the effects of our polluted world start to beat us over the head. For many people in the world, this is already happening.
To take part in a dietary cleanse is to open oneself up for growth and evolution in a very profound way. We tap into that part of us that is able to transcend the body with the power of spirit, even as we deeply honor and respect the perfection embedded in every cell of our body. Over the course of a detox program like this one, we have the opportunity to more fully arrive in our lives by stripping away the mindless activities that keep us detached from the business of living.
And the food. The food is the cornerstone. Energy in its most earthly form. If you have the resources to select quality whole foods, you have a chance to infuse your body with the purest form of energy. And by doing so, you help to sustain it’s production when it has otherwise become an endangered species (aka – a form of activism through consumerism).
Choose real food. Choose slowing down. Choose meaning. Choose depth. Just Choose it now.
The Spring Detox Workshop begins this Saturday at 10:30am in Chicago. The Online class begins next Wednesday night. Let’s do this together.with love, kelly
