I really am not a fan of telling people what to do, even though my job consists of
patients coming to me looking for me to essentially tell them what to do in regards

to tell you what to do.

Be Well Diet Image

For decades we have been obsessed with 'diets' and with questions like...
What's the best diet to help me lose weight, lower my cholesterol, cure my
diabetes, etc?.... But really, it's very simple. Stay out of the middle of the

ingredients that quickly turn into sugar after you eat them.  It has been

Spring Clean
Your Body
 
Shed your winter funk
And kick start a happier, healthier you
Spring is just around the corner! Which is a great time of year to do some internal house cleaning. During the winter months we tend to eat heavier foods in order to add insulation for the colder weather. Spring brings increased movement and new life, giving us the motivation to clean out our system and prepare for the light of summer. 
 
This cleanse is based on a whole foods diet, requiring access to organic foods, purified water, and a high-quality allergen free protein powder.
