Detox, Reset, Restore
12 week Detox Bluepring for eliminating harmufl toxins hiding in your home, resetting your body’s inate detoxifying ability, and restoring vitality back into yoru life.
We live in a sea of environmental toxins. As of 70 years ago, a new campaign started in the United States called “Better Living Through Chemistry” and since that time, approximately 80,000 new chemicals have been introduced and, even further, most have never been tested for safety or for synergistic actions. In fact, 90% of these have not been tested for safety for human health. These contaminants are literally found everywhere on the planet.
I know this is scary, but the beautiful thing is that our bodies actually know what to do with these toxins - the process is called detoxification and it's happening within us all the time.
Detoxification is different than the word detox. A detox, or cleanse, is a short term, 1-30 day, program that involves restriction and elimination of certain foods, while supplementing with others, in order to up-regulate your body’s detoxification pathways. Detoxification, on the other hand, is the body’s own innate capacity to process chemical toxins and eliminate them from the body - all of which you will learn about in this course.
So if our body knows what to do with these toxins, why do we need to 'enhance' the process?
The current issue arises because the amount of these things that bombard our body on a daily basis is so great, that our detoxification processes become overwhelmed and can’t keep up. Plus, we are lacking nutritional requirements from phytochemicals in our everyday diets. As a result, our detoxifying systems are hit with a double whammy when it comes to trying to keep the body safe.
If our body's detoxification systems are impaired, our risk for hormonal imbalances, disease, and cancer increase greatly. Not only does the quality of our life suffer, but so does that of our children and their children, and so on. Hence the reason for this course...
The first section brings awareness about the environmental toxins within your home and your body's innate detoxifying capacity. The second section takes you through a 12 week program to first reduce the amount of environmental toxin exposure, next improve your body's ability to eliminate the current toxic burden, and finally to optimize your liver's ability to detoxify future exposures.

What Are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
How Do I Use Essential Oils?
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:
Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used internally.
Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.
That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.
