Why Cleanse at NourishMe

Do you wish you had stuck to your New Years resolution?

Clear your calendar.

 We can help

Did you know that besides filtering all toxins the liver helps create healthy serotonin 

(the happy hormone) levels? Serotonin is actually metabolized by the liver.

Did you know that our gut and all mucosal linings are our immune system?

Did you know that our immune system responds to the thoughts we think?

Our purpose is to clear the liver so it can do its 500 jobs every day

1. Help your intestines break down and absorb the foods we eat.

2. Help relieve stress from the body, mind and soul.

3. Help you loose weight

4. Help you look and feel younger

The NourishMe Cleanse lasts nine-days. 

1. It includes all tea preparation, cooking and juicing. That’s three meals a day 

for nine days=27 meals. 

2. This takes the stress off of shopping, cooking, and cleaning.

3. We also teach the basics of dry brushing, oil pulling, and Chakra Thai Chi.

4. The NourishMe staff is a very supportive community. (ie: We have fun with 

Our Cleanse uses specific foods and drinks to help the process of detoxing. Essiac 

tea nourishes the liver and kidneys. Green drinks and specific herbs help move 

the toxins into the bloodstream. We add ghee (clarified butter) hemp and flax oil 

to our kitcheree to attract the toxins. And by drinking copious amounts of lemon 

water the liver is opened up, kept hydrated and able to pass those toxins through 

the kidneys without stopping to have a party. 

Most of us eat too much, or too much of the wrong foods, and are exposed 

(unknowingly) to heavy metals, pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. Our liver can 

become so overwhelmed from dealing with these potentially dangerous toxins that 

it can’t keep up with the daily housekeeping. By limiting our foods to a few easily 

digested and nourishing ones we can give your liver a break. Like spring-cleaning 

your home, we can finally clear out all the nasty stuff we stuffed under the bed. 

And we can finally attend to those the mind-dulling cobwebs in the attic. The liver 

will be able to move all this sludge of hormones that have been bottled up, moodily 

This foods are designed to keep you happy and healthy throughout the cleanse and 

beyond. Don’t put this off for another time. Join our friendly staff at NourishMe and 

feel the love. Inside and out. You won’t regret it.

Vegan before 6 p.m. not best advice

We are grateful that the Sun Valley Center for the Arts brings in so many wonderful speakers. New York Times food writer Mark Bittman is one of them—he spoke last week at the Church of the Big Wood. He was a warm, funny and engaging speaker and related well to his audience.
    His message was to eat recognizable whole foods: to learn to cook and use foods from packages containing recognizable and pronounceable ingredients. All of which is a good message to keep in mind. 
    However, Mr. Bittman is not a dietician or nutritionist and not particularly qualified to make nutritional recommendations to the public. His advice about eating only vegan before 6 p.m. is a bit reckless for most of us descended from Europeans.
    In fact, most of us need protein and fat in the morning to fuel our bodies and brains for the many demands of a normal day. Depending on your knowledge of veganism, if you followed this suggestion (he has a book exhorting this method, mostly as a way of losing weight) than most people would stuff their mouths with carbohydrates just to feel satiated. Unless you’re making your own almond milk  (because the boxed kind has those unnecessary added ingredients he spoke of) smoothie blended with avocado, flax seed oil, and a scoop of rice protein, you’re not getting that great start your amazing body deserves in the morning.
    With Bittman’s direction, the average American will probably grab canned or frozen O.J., butter-less toast, boxed cereal with rice milk (from a box) with a banana, or a fat-free, GMO-laden yogurt in a plastic tub. These high-fructose, over-sugared, simple carbohydrate ingredients (apart from the banana) are actually responsible for our seasonal allergies, auto-immune diseases, cardiac distress and diabetes. This kind of diet first thing in the morning starts the blood-sugar roller coaster that continues throughout the day. 
    If you wait until 6 p.m. to stabilize your waning blood sugar, you’ll be opening every cupboard in your house, office or convenience store along the way like a DEA agent on a drug bust. Without fat for fuel, we need a quick fix for our on-board computer—the brain, that 3-pound blob on top of your skeleton. 
    Not only does this message drive a person to eat the very foods advised against, the results leave you grumpy, sluggish, overweight and eventually just plain sick, tired and depressed.
    As a nutritional therapist, my advice is to please eat naturally-high-in-protein eggs in the morning. Eat oatmeal if you wish, but put butter and cream on it. Sweeten with honey and dried fruit, but don’t overdo it. We must have our macro-nutrients to fuel the organs in our bodies. We need carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
    Carbohydrates start the fire just like kindling. Proteins add that crackle and pop that heats up the fire. Fats are the big solid logs that keep it burning, satisfied all day long. Don’t leave home without a complete breakfast. The world always looks a lot better on a full stomach.
    To your good health.
