Over the years I had been to many Standard Process seminars (the company that we use for the cleanse).  Most of the people there had done the cleanse many times.  I was intimidated by the idea that it was 21 whole extremely long days! I had to admit though that the people who did it regularly really did look healthier.

I started cleansing 5 years ago before a high school reunion. Three weeks before my high school reunion someone I knew was on his third week of the cleanse.  I realized those three weeks passed and I couldn’t even remember what I ate or had done.   There he was in his third week, had lost 10 pounds and looked sharper and clearer in his eyes.  With three weeks until that reunion I thought why don’t  I  use that time wisely?

I was shocked at how easy it was for me.  The cleanse is designed to supply the nutrients you need plus you are eating meals so you are never hungry.

I have done this cleanse every year since that high school reunion. Most years I have done it in the fall and the spring. Many people have now done it with me multiple times and we have seen fantastic results.

I usually start a cleanse on the 1st of the month so I easily know which day I am on but of course any time is great.  I mention this because the three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas would be another perfect little window. December first is on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend.  But of course any time is great.

Plus, my oldest and dear friends were in from out of town for the last 2 days and we had been eating amazing, wonderful food and drinking so I was ready for this cleanse.
