How is a detox different from a juice cleanse?
Our detox protocol is a gentle but effective program that utilizes real, whole foods and professional-grade supplements to support the body's natural detoxification processes.
This protocol is not meant to be restrictive. We emphasize nutrient-dense foods to help your body return to optimal health. However, we will discuss foods and products that can be minimized to lower inflammation and reduce hormonal implications.
Doesn't my body naturally detox?
Yes, our bodies do naturally detox. However, given our modern environment, we are exposed to more chemicals than our bodies can process. As a result, most of us need to take extra steps to up-regulate the function of our detox organs to adequately handle the increased toxin load we are exposed to on a daily basis.
How should I eat during the cleanse?
We will be following the fertility-friendly diet detailed in 9 Months Is Not Enough.
We will guide you through every step of the program. Prior to the start of the program, we will give you a PDF guide to act as your companion throughout the process along with live Zoom calls to answer targeted questions that arise as we traverse this journey together.
Are the supplements included in the price of the group cleanse?
No. If you choose to do the optional supplement add-on, you will need to purchase supplements separately through our Fullscript online dispensary (~$100-200 additional, depending on which supplements you choose). Once you complete your purchase of the group program, you'll receive an email with more information about which supplements we suggest and how to order them.
Can I try to conceive during the cleanse?
We do not recommend this cleanse for women that are actively trying to conceive.
In general, detoxification supporting cleanses should be completed in advance of pregnancy so as to not liberate any toxins in the body that could harm a developing baby.
Can I participate in the cleanse while pregnant?
This cleanse is not designed for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. In general, detoxification supporting cleanses should be completed in advance of pregnancy so as to not liberate any toxins in the body that could harm a developing baby.

The live Zoom calls will take place on the following days at 12 pm PT/ 3 pm ET. If you're not able to join live, we will send a recording after the session.
