The 40 Day Healing Journey FAQs


Is this a vegan cleanse? Although an increased intake of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables is highly encouraged, participants are free to eat according to their preferences whether vegan, carnivore, or anything in between.  By the end of your journey you will be a bonafide qualitarian – someone who chooses good, real, clean, high quality food as his/her personal norm.


Do I have to count calories or fat? No.  Who has time for all of that? This is a real food diet.  It is a journey back to nourishment as Nature intended.  This is a lifestyle overhaul program that will teach you how to make the highest quality choices for you and your family.  Rather than being restrictive and unfeasible in the long run, it is a way of life and you will take many of these eating principles with you once our 40 days together come to an end.  


Do I have to commit for 40 days? Healing is a dynamic and deeply personal, neverending journey. Committing to 40 days of conscious choice-making is incredibly empowering.  But you are free to tailor and customize your journey according to your unique goals. These 40 days are experienced in community with so many others deepening their commitment to self love, awareness and self care.  So take advantage of this opportunity!  If you feel you can only commit to a shorter time frame, the daily guidance and online group forum will still be there for you.  So you can continue to acquire tools even if you feel unable or unwilling to go 40 complete days without refined sugar, refined flour or alcohol. This is a journey that stretches beyond nourishment on the physical level.  It will also nourish you mentally and spiritually.


Is there a price difference if I commit to fewer days? The price does not change, as the 40 days are set up to provide you with as much or as little support as you need according to your unique goals.  You will have access to all of the information throughout our time together.  So your level of commitment is up to you.  The deeper you plunge, the more disciplined you effortlessly become.  There will be highs and lows, but our shared community will sustain you.


Do I need to buy a bunch of supplements?  I suggest three particular supplements at non-toxic dosages and have no financial ties or agreements with any specific brand.  The core dietary guidelines of the 40 Day Healing Journey are to completely eliminate refined sugar, refined flour and alcohol for 40 consecutive days.  That alone will revolutionize your health.  The supplements I suggest are optional but highly encouraged.  If you have any health concerns, please consult your physician before beginning this or any nutritional program.


Is it expensive to follow the 40 Day protocol? I wouldn’t necessarily call it ‘expensive’, but rather, a reallocation of funds.  If you drink a $4 specialty coffee with a $3 bagel as a quick breakfast, you may end up redirecting those $7 towards an organic, freshly pressed juice at a local juice bar.  Or the $30 you spend at happy hour once a week may go towards a bottle of olive leaf extract – which is good for the entire cleanse.  Shopping at farmers markets and buying in bulk definitely helps bring costs down. But ultimately you are investing in your health.  And you are worth being fueled with the utmost quality and care.  There’s only one you!


How do I get started? Once you make your contribution, you will receive a confirmation receipt. The weekend before our journey begins, you will receive your password for the members only site.  There you will find your shopping list and some meal suggestions.  Your daily guidance will be posted there as well. You will also be added to our secret group page on Facebook where you will be in the company of your cleansing community.


If I have a spouse or close friend I am participating with, do we have to pay individually? Yes. I developed this program to go far beyond cleansing for physical health benefits.  It is a holistic program aiming to help each individual reach a greater sense of wellbeing and self-care – mind, body and soul. I've also made it affordable. I dedicate my life to staying current in regards to food politics and the latest scientific findings.  And I bring this information to you.  Truly the best part of this cleanse is the group component.  This community interaction is what builds us up individually.  And only paid participants are added to the secret FB group.  It is also important to create trust amongst the cleansers and to keep our shared journey confidential.
