Alkaline Reset:  Treating yourself to a Winter Cleanse to be your Best for 2015!

  • Still feeling sluggish, bloated, or weighed down by the Holiday Season?  

  • Do you want to stay healthy and strong during the cold and flu season?

  • Have you slacked off on drinking your daily dose of Ionized Alkaline Mineral Water?  

  • Are you looking for more mental clarity and inspiration in your life?

  • Interested in shedding off some poor food and drinking habits?

If you answered yes to any of the above you may want to consider treating yourself to a Winter Cleanse.  I just finished a 10-day cleanse and feel better than ever.  I have taken on the challenge of a 7-10 cleanse several times in the past to reset my system and increase my water intake.   They are not easy for me as I love feeling grounded with food.  I eat well, but I like to eat when it is convenient for me.  However, I know that there is great benefit in giving your digestive track a break and simplify your nutrient intake so the body can restore and heal.  Because I love myself and wanted to start off the year radiant and vibrant, I mustered up my self-control and will to go through the process once again.  I wanted some structure and a plan that was well thought out and that offered me support.  I also wanted a cleanse that included some food as I tend to do better when I can chew on something every now and again.  One of my Yoga instructors, Tony Frescura, guided me to just the cleanse I was looking for.  The products are organic and GMO-free, the company grows their own greens for the shakes, and they have a built-in structure to offer you guidance, support, and lots of encouragement along the way.  I resonate with their mission and philosophy which is geared to transform individuals emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  The 10 days on the program came and went before I knew it!  It was wonderful to keep things simple.  I have provided the information below on the cleanse I just finished as I have been through the process and trust the products.  They have a diabetic-friendly version of the products as well as a gluten-free option.  

Benefits of my 10 days on the PURIUM Celebrity 10-day transformation cleanse:

  1. Increased Ionized Alkaline Water Intake

  2. Increased consumption of greens

  3. Let go of some poor food habits that crept back in the last few months

  4. Confidence (exercising self-control is very empowering)

  5. Released a few inches around my waist

  6. Released a few pounds

  7. Spent more time contemplating my intentions for 2015

  8. Increased mental clarity

  9. Spent more time de cluttering my home

  10. Increased JOY

  11. Clearer skin

  12. Deeper connection to my spiritual path

  13. Inner peace

  14. Sense of feeling very Healthy

  15. Positive mental attitude

There are many reasons do participate in a cleanse.  Many want to release weight or get a health challenge healed.  Personally I do them for preventative health.  When you give your digestive track a break from digesting food the energy can then be devoted to restoring and healing every cell of your body much more efficiently.   If you decide to join in on the PURIUM cleanse program, please check out the information below to get you started.  It’s a lot easier to do with support!  It is easy to think of reasons why you can’t do this.  Believe me; I know how the mind likes to talk us out of anything that may be out of our comfort zone.   I also know that I can’t believe all of my thoughts as they are often distorted and responding to internal fears and insecurities.  

Here are a few things I did to help myself along the way:

  • Kept a journal for each day

  • Read the book:  The Gift of Your Compulsions by Mary O’Malley

  • Used a daily affirmation stating :  I can and will follow the cleanse program today

  • Took naps when I was able

  • Engaged in a lighter exercise routine

  • Used deep breathing to get through tougher moments

  • Engaged in lots of self-care (Yoga, sauna, baths, slowly enjoyed my favorite herbal tea)

  • Reached out for support daily

  • Had cozy nights at home and stayed away from situations that would not support the process

  • Kept things simple

  • Did not take on new projects

  • Limited my time preparing food (yes, I still was able to cook for my family)

  • Creatively prepared the “flex foods” offered on the program (apples, avocados, celery, zucchini, cucumbers, almond or coconut milk, coconut water, spinach, kale)

Flex Food Recipes I enjoyed during the cleanse:

Sautéed Spinach


  • 1 tsp. organic coconut oil

  • 2 heaping handful of baby spinach

  • Himalayan salt to taste

Directions:  Heat coconut oil in stainless steel pan.  Add spinach and sauté for a few minutes.  Add salt.  Place on a pretty place and eat slowly.  So good!!!

Coconut Kale Chips:


  • 1 bunch of red kale

  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

  • A few dashes of Himalayan salt

Directions:  Wash and dry kale.  Cut each leaf in half.  Pour the coconut oil into a large bowl and add salt.  Stir then add the kale and mix with your hands so the leaves get well coated.  Place on dehydrator sheet and “bake” at 110 degrees for a few hours or until the desired crispiness.  

I sincerely hope you consider giving yourself an amazing Alkaline Reset experience.  

Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2015,
