My journey started with gaining weight rapidly due to emotionally eating and lack of exercise. I was in a very toxic relationship and being unhappy I lived a very sedentary lifestyle. I decided on March 29th I could no longer live 100 pounds overweight. I “googled” a nutritionist and thought I needed to see someone about what I was eating instead of just trying to aimlessly workout at the gym and eat the same. I was extremely nervous, somewhat not ready to give up on eating junk food but I knew I had no choice. I am forever grateful for all the encouragement, support and genuine love the Nutrition and Wellness Center ladies gave me throughout all of this. My life will never be the same and I am diligent on keeping the weight off. I was wearing a size 20 and now being a size 6 feels incredible. I can say this was by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my life but I expected it to be much more difficult as I got older. It was now or never. By their leading, I did two 21 day cleanses to help curb my cravings and jump-start my weight loss, highly suggest! Then they lead me in how to eat for maintenance. I am continuing to eat lean meat, veggies and fruit with lots of protein. I am still avoiding dairy and grains as they have a huge effect on my body and how I feel. I never thought I would lose the weight and honestly can say I would not have had the same results working with someone other than Elizabeth and Julie Mitchell. They are forever family of mine.

10 Signs You May Have a Toxic Overload

“Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” 2 Timothy 2:21

We are all exposed to toxins from our environment daily. The word “toxin” is something causing harm to the body which may come from air, food supply, drinking water, or skin contact. Supporting the body’s releasing ability of these toxins, frees up energy thus increasing vitality.

  1. Stuffy head
  2. Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
  3. Indigestion
  4. Constipation
  5. Food cravings
  6. Weight gain
  7. Reduced mental clarity
  8. Low drive
  9. Dull skin
  10. Joint discomfort

At The Nutrition and Wellness Center, we encourage our clients to schedule a cleansing period on their calendar 1 or 2 times a year.  This focused cleansing time frees up energy to clear and move stagnant debris that can set the stage for disease as well as expression of generational weaknesses.

“The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” Hippocrates

6 Reasons to Cleanse

Setting the stage for an internal body cleansing, takes a little extra time and effort. If done right…in a healthy, safe and controlled environment —getting your body clean and healthy has the potential to create a wide range of positive effects.

 

  1. Clear the body of the toxic load.

Long-term exposure to toxins (environmental pollutants, cancer-causing chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial waste) affects our metabolism, behavior, and immune system, which leads to disease. The toxins are stored in extracellular water, fat, tissues and cells throughout the body(sometimes for years!), including the brain.

  1. Strengthen immune system function.

A weakened immune system makes us vulnerable to colds and flus, affecting our quality of life and productivity. Regular cleansing helps strengthen immune system functioning and fights off infection.

  1. Weight Loss.

Toxins affect the body’s natural ability to burn fat, leading to weight gain. Diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, and high blood pressure are directly linked to weight issues. Cleansing helps to rid the body of toxins stored in fat cells which may help increase metabolism.

  1. Slow premature aging.

Cleansing rids the body of free radicals and heavy metals partially responsible for aging. Cleansing helps to increase nutrient absorption, including antioxidants and vitamins that help fight internal  stress.

  1. Life quality improves.

When we are loaded with toxins, our bodies just don’t function right. Signs of this may be: diarrhea, constipation, bloating, gas, joint pain, headaches, sleep problems, moodiness, depression and lack of energy.

  1. Watch energy increase!

It takes a lot of energy to store toxins in the body, you just may not have realized that is why you are so tired. You can expect to have more overall energy and be able to meet your life goals. People tend to sleep better and may end up needing less of it.
