Juice fasting is a multidimensional experience in which total body transformation occurs. There are a wide range of metabolic changes and experiences. The blood and lymph are detoxified. When juice fasting, the release of toxins from the colon, kidneys, bladder, lungs, sinuses, and skin clears out complications that have arisen from a bad diet and unhealthy lifestyle. The benefits of following a juice fast include heightened spiritual awareness and relaxation of the body, mind, and emotions. Many people feel a sense of letting go of pain from the past and developing a positive attitude towards the present. During juice fasting, the body is able to clean out its system because it is not expending energy towards the digestive organs. Raw juices contain certain natural medicines, vegetal hormones and antibiotics. Do your body a favor and sign up today!

For a first time faster, the total juice fast experience is $482.
***You may choose strictly juices and a few supplements to fit your needs and budget. The cost of juices will be $180 for the first time fasters and $150 for people who have fasted with Michelle before.
*Juices are for the week we establish according to your schedule. (This includes three fresh juices per day and one coconut water) 
*It is not recommended for people who have metabolic imbalances to use coconut water. (If you do not need coconut water subtract $25).
*You may choose to add an extra juice per day to your fast to make your experience a juice feast for $35.

Vitamineral Earth™-- (Optional) Nutritionally supports blood sugar, colon, detoxification, the immune system, and Longevity. Balances the Yin and Yang with the Vitamineral Green.
E3 Enzymes Supreme™-- Enzymes are the 'spark of life'. This powder formula is a digestive and cleansing blend of plant-based enzymes and other plant-derived digestive aids. This formula consists of premium, full-spectrum, digestive enzymes with added nutritional co-factors optimized to work in wide pH variations throughout the entire digestive tract.  Without enzymes, our bodies do not properly break down food; therefore we do not absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids which are the basis of health. Our immune system, bloodstream, liver, kidneys, spleen and pancreas especially depend upon enzymes for proper digestive function. Without proper enzymes, our white blood cells try to perform the purpose of the enzymes, usually leaving one feeling tired after eating, and compromising the immune system. Enzymes are responsible for every biochemical reaction that occurs in living matter. All life depends on enzymes.
Nascent Iodine- This is the least toxic and least irritating of all iodine formulas available. Iodine is crucial for every hormone to function properly and for normal metabolism. Iodine deficiency is relatively common. Severe iodine deficiency often occurs in individuals who have thyroid disease and are hyperthyroid (an over active thyroid), or those who have a goiter from thyroid malfunction. Symptoms of iodine deficiency may include extreme fatigue, slowing of both physical and mental processes, weight gain, facial puffiness, constipation and lethargy. Iodine, because of it's role in the metabolism helps burn off excess fat, it is a germicidal and antiseptic for internal use, iodine aids in, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, helps heal gastro-intestinal and urinary disorders, malaria fever, various infectious diseases internal and external, arthritis and joint diseases, skin diseases, burns, abrasions, cuts and mouth diseases.  Wow!
Natural Cellular Defense™-- Every cell in your body is under constant attack from toxins. Heavy metals like mercury, lead, aluminum and countless other toxins attack our body's defenses, depleting our reserves and causing us to age, get headaches, feel tired, get sick, etc. Natural Cellular Defense has been clinically formulated to help support a healthy immune system, remove heavy metals and toxins, and balance your body's pH levels.
Liver-ND™ is a botanical formula that promotes optimal liver rejuvenation and cleansing, healthy bile flow, fat digestion, healthy cellular DNA, and healthy blood lipids. And since the liver and gallbladder are intimately connected, Liver-ND™ supports healthy gallbladder function too.
Premier Cleansing Formula is a clinically-tested, whole body cleansing formula. It contains a complete, synergistic blend of grade 10, carefully harvested herbs from South America. Its unique carrier base, grade 10 psyllium husk powder, provides a gentle, soluble fiber that adds soft, almost fluffy bulk to stools. This helps clear out toxic colon pockets and move foul, stagnant waste matter from of the colon. In addition, its scrubbing action can help trap and pull away many years of encrusted toxic debris.
Dry Skin Brush(s)-- It is well known that the skin is the largest organ in the body, and is responsible for one-fourth of the body's detoxification each day, also making it, one of the most important elimination organs! When you dry skin brush, you help your lymph system to clean itself of the toxins, that collect in the lymph glands. You use a simple technique to improve the surface circulation on the skin and keep the pores of the skin open, encouraging your body's discharge of metabolic wastes, and resulting in an improved ability to combat bacteria, plus helping your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient! Skin brushing is a perfect treatment for taking charge of your body and health.
Tongue Scraper-- The ancient Ayurvedic healing philosophy of India has recommended tongue scraping for centuries as an aid to digestion and for the health of the teeth and the sinuses. When the salivary glands are cleaned, it activates them and enhances digestion (yes, digestion begins in the mouth as saliva mixes with food and begins to break it down). Tongue cleaning revitalizes the throat and keeps the sinuses cleaner by reducing bacteria that can travel into the respiratory system. Many people who have struggled with sinus infections, sore throats, throat infections*, and chronic bad breath, may find added relief through regular tongue scraping. Dentists are now recommending tongue cleaning to keep the mouth clean and reduce odor. They have learned that bad breath most often comes from bacteria on the tongue rather than from gum disease.
Sole Bath- In contrast to a normal bath, in which moisture is extracted from the skin, a sole bath allows salt to be stored in the upper callous layer of the skin and binds water.  This maintains the natural, protective film of the skin, protecting it from drying out. This is the reason why sole baths are good for dry skin as well.  The cleansing effects of a 30-minute sole bath equal those of three days of fasting.  The toxins are released into the bath water through osmosis, while the minerals from the sole are absorbed through the skin.  Studies have shown that you can achieve the best results taking a sole bath during the change of the moon cycle.  The minerals and energies stored in the sole can optimally be absorbed during a full moon.  The body's healing potential is at its peak, bioenergetically weak points are harmonized, and the body's own energy flow is activated.  During a new moon, the cleansing effects are optimized because the body's capacity for detoxifying is at an optimum.  The bath will have a detoxifying effect similar to a three day fast.
Triphala-- A must for easing back into food as it is used to rejuvenate the digestive system, support healthy liver function, support the immune system, support healthy inflammatory response and as a tonic for overall health. Nutrient-rich Triphala (or three fruits) regulates, strengthens, tones, and cleanses your digestive system without stripping or depleting your body of vital nutrients. One of the oldest and most renowned herbal formulas from the Vedic tradition, Triphala is a gentle, nourishing blend of three certified organic fruits: amalaki, bibhitaki, and haritaki. High in linoleic oil and vitamin C, non habit-forming and safe for people of all ages, our Ayurvedic Triphala formula's colon cleansing action supports healthy digestive and gastro intestinal function while strengthening nutritional assimilation. 
Purifying Essential Oil Blend by Elizabeth Van Buren -- Purifying is a great detoxifying blend. It balances emotional and physical excesses such as resentment, jealousy, overeating, and alcohol and drug addictions. Grapefruit is an excellent detoxifier and diuretic and benefits drug withdrawal, water retention, cellulite, and lymphatic drainage. Juniper aids the kidneys and liver and rids the body of uric acid. It also promotes sweating that helps rid toxins. Angelica Root invigorates the lymph system.
Probiotic-- The ultimate, hard-core, no-holds-barred probiotic. Cleansing, immune boosting,* nutrient creating, unique whole food prebiotics greatly magnify potency.* Dairy free, gluten free, implantable species, significantly improves digestion and assimilation.* A natural synergy of acid-resistant, ultra-stable ultra-high potency implantable, survivable, whole food prebiotics (NO isolates) that greatly magnify potency and healthy growth.* Feeds on toxins and detoxifies them. Enhances digestion and nutrient assimilation. Actually create nutrients such as vitamin B12, enzymes, and neurotransmitters (the gut is your second brain). Significantly supports immune function.* Supports elimination of candida and unfriendly bacteria.* Whole food synergists yacon and burdock provide powerful phytonutrients and inulin growth medium (not isolated FOS) that significantly magnifies potency. Marshmallow and kelp provide mucilagenous probiotic acid protection. Marshmallow supports protecting and rebuilding the intestinal lining from leaky gut. Kelp provides detox, heavy metal chelation, full spectrum minerals plus mannose and fucose for immunity.*

Parenting for Peace

Over the last few days I have been blessed with mommy vacation. It has been wonderful to have some unexpected time by myself. I have been able to ground myself and really reflect on being a parent. I feel like sometimes with all of the day to day activities I get caught up and spread myself too thin with doing things, going here, acquiring, achieving and evaluating I sometimes honestly, loose my own presence and awareness and quite possibly some of the greatest experiences of being a parent. Could I be missing out on some of the joy's of everyday life? As a persons worldview, creates their own worldview, the process of continuously revising the lenses and shifting to a higher paradigm.

Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit."

Our basic understandings of who we are and what the world is all about are a series of neural perception templates that were pretty much molded for us, by our earliest experiences with people and the environment around us. In the book, Parenting for Peace, by Marcy Axness, PhD, she repeatedly talks about raising the next generation of peacemakers. Here is a You Tube video with Marcy talking about how Peace Begins with Every Mother and Baby.

7 Enduring Principals to Ponder:

Presence - Being fully engaged right here, right now with your body, your thoughts, your feelings.
Awareness -  The knowledge needed to be effective.
Rhythm - A fundamental human pacing need, often forgotten in our techno-automated world.
Example -  The ultimate mode of teaching, and learning.
Nurturance - The practical demonstration of love.
Trust -  Calm reliance upon processes outside of your immediate perception and control' cousin to humility.
Simplicity -  The absence of complication and excess.

The more we simplify, the more we embolden ourselves to rely upon and find strength in our own resources. Make no mistake - this book on Parenting For Peace is calling for a revolution - an awakening to our own power that comes from within. Every time our children see us putting our inner sources to work, even when it doesn't seem like its enough, it is an important education. Because, You Are Enough! The ability to draw on your own resources will give your child the ability to do the same. And this is one of the greatest gifts you can give them!
Into my will let there pour strength,
Into my feeling let there flow warmth,
Into my thinking let there shine light,
that I may nurture this child
with enlightened purpose,
caring with heart's love and brining
wisdom to all things.
~Rudolf Steiner
Hope you are enjoying the bounty of the summer!
