Journey of Health
May 2010

Spring is here even though we had that nasty little snow storm and altered our Paul Nison event. Not to worry, he is coming back and we are working on a date, possibly June or September. Speaking of events, I got a cute little surprise the other day when a customer heard my name on The Raw Food World TV, so we will be working on bringing Matt & Angela to Calgary and hearing Angela's inspirational story on how she lost over 160 pounds and managed to keep it off 5 years later.

I am excited to announce I am full-time at Journey of Health. I am not at the store on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons but most times you can catch me there. I am available for consultations and will be offering more speaking engagements and classes. I have events scheduled at Community Natural Foods and The City of Calgary and will be featuring Lunch n' Learn classes soon.  I love being more at home with Abigail and supporting my raw food passion at the store and helping you!

90 Day No Sugar Cleanse

I think I am a little crazy but more curious then anything on what a 90 day no sugar cleanse will do for my immune system , my blood and my body. I can't believe I already have 6 people willing to join me on this difficult but rewarding journey. We will embark on a 3 day pre-cleanse, 8 day no food colon cleanse, 30 day green juice feast and then onto an all raw diet for the remaining 90 days. This cleanse will not include any sugars of any kind, no fruit, no process sugars, no cooked food, just pure organic greens, vegetables, nuts and seeds.
This in depth program will include:
Live Blood Analysis group follow up *
Blessed Herbs Colon Cleansing Kit
2 Raw Food Courses plus 
Intro Course to the Cleanse
Ionic Foot Baths
Handout of all the sugars you can not eat, a step by step guide to getting you through the no sugar zone.
Classes on how to make raw recipes, raw juices and recipes made with stevia.
Plus all the support you need to get you through it!
By allowing your body a break from sugar for 3 months you can boost the immune system, repair cells, cure chronic yeast infections, parasites, fungus, heal adrenal gland issues, lose weight and so much more.

Green Smoothie

This is my all time favorite green smoothie:

2-3 Handfuls of Spinach
2-3 Handfuls of Romaine Lettuce
1-2 Handfuls of Cilantro
1-2 cups pineapple (frozen works great too)
1 lime, juiced

Add all the ingredients in your blender and blend away until smooth. Feel free to add water and your favorite healing herbs. I like to add Ashwagandha, Gotu Kola and Alfalfa.

This is a great class to bring your kids too! This is a demonstration class, not a hands on class.
Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

We are pleased to announce our first ever movie night featuring the film Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days which is an independent documentary film that chronicles six Americans with 'incurable' diabetes switching their diet and getting off insulin.

The film follows each participant's remarkable journey and captures the medical, physical, and emotional transformations brought on by this diet and lifestyle change. We witness moments of struggle, support, and hope as what is revealed, with startling clarity, is that diet can reverse diabetes* and change lives.

Additional wisdom is provided by Morgan Spurlock, Woody Harrelson, Anthony Robbins, Rev. Michael Beckwith, David Wolfe and Doctors Fred Bisci, Joel Fuhrman, and Gabriel Cousens.

The movie will be playing at the Cardel Theatre for FREE.

Just bring a food item for the Food Bank.

Movie starts at 7 PM.
