To Cleanse or not to cleanse?
I am not actually going to answer this. I personally think doing a reset on your body is a beneficial thing.
I am dealing with a few autoimmune things, which I will go in to more details at a later time, so I have decided to do a total reset with a bone broth based cleanse into an elimination diet (going to follow the Inflammation Spectrum, by Dr. Will Cole) for a few months. I have purposely decided to start at the holidays to get my body back on track and avoid all the holiday treats!
While at the Goop In Health Summit in Los Angeles in the Spring I met the team behind Owl Venice, a wonderful health and wellness shop and after speaking to the I could not wait to try the reset. It has taken me this long to move
Their mantra is simple: "WE BELIEVE THAT TO HEAL THE WORLD YOU MUST FIRST HEAL YOURSELF. THROUGH OUR WELLNESS SERVICES AND PRODUCTS HANDCRAFTED WITH ORGANIC AND LOCAL INGREDIENTS, WE SEEK TO TRANSFORM LIVES FROM THE INSIDE OUT AND MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY AND BEYOND. "
So, The OWL Reset an Organic Cleanse Program is what I will be doing this week. This program, based on the principles of Ayurveda and Chronobiology, consists of three bone broths and three nutrient dense hemp mylkshakes packed with ingredients that restore and repair the gut wall, increase digestive fire, reduce inflammation, and draw toxins and heavy metals from the body. While other cleanse programs deplete the body of essential nutrients, the OWL Reset nourishes the body, resets the gastrointestinal system, and fosters the optimal conditions for an elimination diet.
