A Wealth of Helpful Information


Fasting can help to wipe the slate clean of addictive food cravings, overeating, and fatigue. Get back on your healthy eating! This juice fasting group will include the option to consume raw blended soups. Some of you have expressed interest in conducting a juice fast, but feel it to be a little too extreme or feel intimidated by taking on such an endeavor. We will cover all the details to conduct a juice fast, as well as a blended nutritional cleanse. This is a great way to experience a cleanse in a modified way.

The benefit to fasting with a group is in how inspired you will feel to begin your fast, and to continue with it for as long as you are comfortable.

     We will discuss all aspects to fasting including:
  • how to conduct a fast successfully,
  • why fast?,
  • what to expect when you are fasting,
  • an understanding of how the body cleanses through fasting,
  • tips on making a fast as easy and as pleasant as possible,
  • how to end a fast correctly.
  • You may attend if you plan to start a fast or will plan to fast in the future.
The next Juice Fasting Group will meet on:

This informational lecture prepares you to do a cleanse on your own.
Just about everyone has gallstones. They are formed in the liver and are found also in the gallbladder and the connecting ducts. When doing a gallbladder/liver flush you can pass hundreds of green and beige colored gallstones. Gallstones are primarily made of cholesterol as the main ingredient (95%), bile, and calcium salts. They are congealed clumps of bile that are invisible to any x-ray or ultra sound technology. An ultra-sound will detect a fatty liver when the cholesterol based stones are blocking the liver and ducts and will show a completely white picture instead of black. A fatty liver can accumulate 20,000 stones before it succumbs to suffocation and ceases to function.
Gallstones are a contributing factor to most diseases. Any obstruction in the body will cause stress and toxicity and will be a major reason why people become ill and have difficulty
recovering from disease.
By doing a gallbladder flush you will take steps to restore your liver. You will improve your health, vitality, energy, and youthfulness. A cleaner liver brings a new lease on life. By decongesting the liver and gallbladder the body’s 60-100 trillion cells will breathe more oxygen, receive sufficient amounts of nutrients, eliminate metabolic waste products, and maintain perfect communication links with nervous system, endocrine system,
and every part of the body.
There are two methods of doing a gallbladder flush that we will discuss. You will decide which method best suits you. There is a 4 Day or 6 Day ‘Preparation’ to choose from. We will cover step by step instructions and you will receive a handout information package. I will be available to take your phone call if you have any questions during your process at no additional charge.

“This irresistible feeling comes over you and holds on tight and won’t let go!”
“What is it? “
“It’s a Craving!”
The most common reason why people have difficulty with going ‘raw’ or just
plain sticking with a healthy diet is those nasty food cravings..


In this workshop we will discuss:

-the reasons for cooked food dependency
-tips on how to increase the amount of raw food in your diet
-the ingredients needed to cope in those challenging moments
-an understanding of what is needed to succeed

This discussion will include an understanding of the  physical, psychological and spiritual aspects to better health.

Much of the background material used for this workshop comes from my own experience, my many years working with people in the health community, my knowledge and experience as a Colon Hydro-therapist and from the book ’12 Steps to Raw Foods,’ by Victoria Boutenko.





It is my pleasure to host my teachers and mentors of healthful living! Please prepay ONLINE! We expect a full house. Bring your family and friends! This rare opportunity to see these two GIANTS on the same stage! WOW! Don’t Miss It!
