According to Ayurveda, the transitional seasons of spring and fall present a unique opportunity to detox in such a way that we send a ripple effect of health, vibrancy and immunity benefits into the summer and the year ahead.
We had such a great Colorado Cleanse with everyone this spring. If you missed the group cleanse, you don’t have to miss your chance to cleanse this spring – our Anytime Cleanse is available for you to do at your convenience with the guidance of the Third Edition of the Colorado Cleanse book. Recently, we received a beautiful testimonial that we have the great fortune of being able to share with everyone today. We love to hear your stories – this is why we do what we do!
Dear Dr. Douillard,
On February 21st, I attended your program at Kripalu. Here is a quote from my journal on the afternoon before the program: “If I can control my eating, I will be better. Why is it so difficult for me? I come this time with the intention to surrender, to really let go and allow the universe to answer my prayers. This weekend, I want: to heal, to jump start my eating plan, to eat better once and for all, to be refreshed and rejuvenated, to find the missing component to the other food plans I have done – Mark Hyman, Deepak Chopra, anti-candida, etc., and to find clarity for the way to proceed.”
I have now accomplished all of my goals through your program. I am currently doing the Colorado Cleanse with you. I feel great and know I’ve found the right path. I spent my 30’s in and out of the hospital for depression. After my last hospitalization in 2009, I gave up hope. I was wishing only to die. I am a massage therapist and one of my clients told me about the Ultra Simple diet, a cleanse by Dr. Hyman available in paperback. I bought the book and started right away. It saved my life. It was similar to your Phase 3 plan. I ate clean for 2 months and watched symptoms and weight melt away. But then, I reached a point where it was not working. I was confused. In 2011, I saw Dr. Hyman at Kripalu in the very same room we were in for the UltraMind Solution. I wanted to do it but the book and program were daunting and the cost of supplements was high.
I then found a holistic doctor who placed me on a strict anti- candida diet which he said I would have to maintain forever! I saw yeast as an enemy in my body.
When I heard your ideas, I felt like you handed me the key to a locked door that leads to a life with health and purpose. You explained the things that were confusing me and told me I can heal my digestion for good. It makes sense. Your program is detailed yet easy to follow and I love the support and emails.
I am a singer and songwriter as well as a massage therapist. I do a unique treatment that integrates song, massage, and Reiki and psychic insight. My practice is growing and I feel more connected than ever. I will do the CO cleanse twice a year faithfully. If all goes well, I’d like to facilitate a group in the fall-where I practice. I want to take a class in lymphatic drainage to offer to participants. I know you explain how to organize a group to do the cleanse together. I will look into it. Thanks again for all the info and insights you offer. I am changing my life. I almost did not attend that workshop at Kripalu. Wasn’t sure I should spend the $$ on a possible dead end. Glad I did. I worked at Kripalu for 3 years and went to massage school there and never looked into their Ayurveda program. I am so grateful.
