THE POWER LIVING® DETOX
An Integrated Body-Mind-Spirit Approach to Detoxification
Do you sometimes get "brain fog"? Do you often feel anxious? Are you experiencing fatigue or trouble sleeping? Does your skin get irritated or your stomach easily upset? Is your immune system strong enough to thrive through the next pandemic? OR Do you simply want more energy, clarity and vitality? It may be time to detox. Every time you take a breath, eat commercial food, or use consumer electronics, personal care products, or household products, you are exposing yourself to dangerous toxins. The Power Living® Detox is an integrated body-mind-spirit approach to detoxification:
BODY - Cleanse, build and maintain the body's defense mechanisms through a 7-day whole foods detox including 6 sample menus, 52 plant-based recipes, as well as non-food therapies such as dry skin brushing, nasal irrigation, hydrotherapy, breathing techniques and a detox yoga flow
MIND - Create a positive outlook and peace of mind through affirmations, meditation, a downloadable workbook for reflections, and daily mindfulness prompts
SPIRIT - Uncover emotional blockages and cultivate clarity through space clearing, journaling and connecting in the online community
We've been guiding people through this program in person and via email for over 15 years based on Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy's 2007 book, Seven-Day PWR Detox: Cleanse Your Body, Mind & Spirit While Living Your Daily Life. However, this is the first time the detox is fully digital with extensive video-based modules and an online community. This is SO much more than a detox diet. Like all of the Power Living offerings, this program is a step toward conscious living.
Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Sources of toxins include chemicals in pesticides, household cleaners, personal care products, drugs, pollution, cigarette smoke, and heavy metals, as well as high-stress foods and additives such as sugar, salt, saturated fat, caffeine and alcohol. Ask yourself:
Do I often feel anxious?
Do I easily forget things?
Do I get frequent headaches?
Do I often feel weakness and fatigue?
Do I feel sad or down much of the time?
Do I experience lots of gas, belching, or heartburn?
Do I often feel tired even when I’ve had enough sleep?
Do I suffer from periodic breakouts, rashes, or skin conditions?
Do I catch more than three colds or viruses in an average year?
Do I have cravings that are hard to control (food, alcohol, nicotine, sex, shopping, etc.)?
If you answered "Yes" to any of those questions, you are likely toxic. A normally-functioning body, with strong eliminative organs, is designed to combat most of these substances. However, a body loaded down with toxins may have a weakened immune system, an over-worked liver, and possibly a dysfunctional colon. Without the ability to properly manage the pollutants, the body literally becomes “toxic.” A toxic body is a key hindrance to maintaining optimal weight and is more vulnerable to a wide range of disorders from allergies and arthritis to hormonal imbalances, infertility, heart disease and a range of cancers.
To set you up for success and jumpstart a plant-based sustainable lifestyle, you'll receive the Three-Week Preparation, Detoxification & Integration (PDI) Protocol, including 21 days of email support.
Week 1: Preparation - Toxic Load Assessment, space clearing, menu planning, benchmarking, and learning modules on body basics and detoxification.
Week 2: Detoxification - Motivation, meditation, affirmations and reminders during the 7-day program, as well as suggestions on the non-food therapies.
Week 3: Integration - Post-Assessment, celebration, learning module on sustainability, and reflections on how to integrate the elements into your daily life.

2. Mind-Body Training
Get a massage from the inside out with this 30-minute Detox Yoga Flow. This beginner-friendly sequence will stimulate digestion, release excess gas or bloating, and twist out toxins from your body and mind.
Learn three specialized breathing techniques to increase oxygen flow, calm and balance the nervous system, cleanse the energy, relax the mind, and regulate the cooling and warming cycles of the body.
Practice a daily Tuning In to center your mind during the 7-day Detox, as well as a Meditation for Letting Go to clear your mind of mental or emotional strongholds which may be weighing you down and blocking your potential.
3. Skin & Nasal Cleansing
Dry Skin Brushing
Use dry skin brushing to enhance your health and beauty by detoxifying your largest organ – the skin. Among the many benefits, it stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, improves kidney function, and encourages new cell renewal.
Learn how to do nasal cleansing with a Neti Pot to help detox and promote sinus health. It can clear nasal congestion, help you breathe better, reduce sinus inflammation, treat allergies, and even improve snoring and sleep apnea.
Choose a hydrotherapy option from hot & cold shower therapy, sauna, steam, or our simple, yet effective detox bath recipe to increase circulation and release toxins. Get the added benefit of relaxation for the body and mind.
4. Additional Learning Modules
Primer On Toxins
More than 7 million recognized chemicals are in existence, and approximately 80,000 of them are in common use worldwide. Learn more about your potential "body burden" in 8 In-Toxic-ating Habits and 8 Hazards of Daily Living.
