DETOXIFYING Spring | summer CLEANSE
Helping you feel light, radiant, and balanced in
your body and mind
A 7 day, delicious, food-based cleanse that focuses on detoxifying your body, rebooting your hormonal health, and creating a new way for you to flourish this Spring and Summer.
This cleanse is designed to bring you back into balance, give you the energy to embark on all that you desire to create in your life and feel at home in your body again.
The most dramatic change for me has been that for the first time in my life, I honestly feel like my sugar addiction is under control. Before starting the cleanse, I really thought the no sugar would be the hardest part for me but I've been able to pass up pastries pretty easily. My mood and energy levels have improved significantly, which says a lot since I thought I'd have no energy since I was giving up caffeine. Before this, I would have at least 2-3 cups of coffee a day. Lastly, I've experienced a 12.5lb weight loss, which is beyond awesome!!

This Cleanse is for you, if:
you have a desire to feel more balanced, light, and at ease in your body and mind.
you are a mom and would like to help your body feel like YOUR body again.
you've been feeling sluggish, have had low energy (and/or libido), and want to regain your zest for life.
you suffer from hormonal imbalances, period problems, PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, low libido, sleep difficulties, low thyroid or skin issues and want to give your body a break so it can get back into balance.
you would like to prepare your body to prepare for conception.
you have been putting up with uncontrollable cravings and/or excess weight and a feeling that food controls your mood more than you like.
you want to detoxify your system from all the built up "bad choices" you've made and get back to cleaner way of nourishing yourself.
you simply want to feel balanced, light, resilient, and vibrant in your body and mind.
you want to experience what it means to "eat yourself healthy."
Statistics reveal that almost 80% of women suffer from some kind of hormonal imbalance resulting in a slew of physical and mental health challenges.
The sad reality is that most women feel completely overwhelmed and confused when it comes to healing these imbalances naturally and holistically.
This is exactly why I created this powerful yet gentle, food-based detoxification cleanse for you.
I want you to experience the power of food.
This cleanse is perfect for your whole family!
How is this Cleanse different from other cleanses?
This cleanse is not about making your life hard and your plate empty and boring. The focus is not deprivation.
Instead, this cleanse focuses on giving you the tools, resources, and support to try a new and DELICIOUS way of eating.
It's about filling your life and your plate with color, vibrancy and flavor that is good for you while also giving your body a break and allowing it to release toxins that are holding it back and even making it sick.
Another -very important!- differentiating factor is that we will focus on your BODY and on your MIND.
You will be taught how to nourish yourself physically AND you will expand your understanding for what your biggest hurdles are when it comes to creating a life in which you can flourish.
This cleanse is about creating a solid jumping board for your physical, emotional, and mental well-being + a thriving fertility that gets you ready for an amazing and healthy pregnancy (if that is what you desire).
"Doing this cleanse, I definitely noticed a considerable difference in my skin, which was particularly impressive at the start of my cycle, when I always experience at least one breakout. Additionally, the most impressive takeaway was my emotional triggers and how they manifest into certain cravings. I feel much more self-aware and look forward to moving forward with new intentions."

HOW DOES THIS CLEANSE WORK?
Once your sign up for the cleanse, you will get an email from me welcoming you to the cleanse and providing you with all the information, the introductory call with me, guidelines, recipes, daily action steps to promote emotional healing, sample food menus, shopping lists etc. (see below for a list of everything you'll get)
Then, all you have to do is pick a 7-day period during which you can commit to doing this cleanse.
It doesn't have to be the "perfect" week (if you try to do that, you will likely never get around to it) but a week during which there is a bit less going on. Sometimes that means shifting some meetings around so that you can focus on yourself and your health.
Caring for your hormones and your body is an act of

Questions? Please email Caroline@carolinezwickson.com.
1. I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME AND AM AFRAID THAT THE MEAL-PREP WILL TAKE TOO MUCH TIME AND I WON'T FOLLOW THROUGH.
One of my favorite things about the recipes I give you are the mix & match formulas for smoothies, oatmeal and fall soups. They are so easy and delicious and I promise you will love them way beyond this cleanse. As a busy mom myself I don't have a ton of time and so I also love that I can feed all the cleanse meals to my whole family. I understand that time is of essence.
2. I WANT TO GET PREGNANT IN THE NEXT 3-9 MONTHS, WHY IS DOING A CLEANSE IMPORTANT BEFORE I GET PREGNANT?
This is such a great question. Thank you for asking it. The reason it is important to cleanse BEFORE you get pregnant is because you want to enter your pregnancy with a body that is not overladen with toxins and allergens that are only causing inflammation, prevent proper nutrient absorption and don't serve your growing baby in utero. Cleansing during pregnancy should be avoided because you don't want to release toxins from your tissue into your bloodstream because those toxins could get to your baby. Before your pregnancy is the ideal time to cleanse your body and balance your hormones.
3. DOES "GENTLE" CLEANSING MEAN THAT I WON'T LOSE ANY WEIGHT?
While weight loss is not the goal of this cleanse, it is well known that when your hormones aren't balanced and your body is inflamed, you are likely also holding on to extra weight. If you are battling toxins you body cannot focus on your metabolism. That's why many women experience weight loss and a movement towards their ideal weight.
4. I AM CURRENTLY BREASTFEEDING, CAN I STILL DO THE CLEANSE?
Absolutely. In fact, the main goal of the cleanse is to support your hormones to balance. If you are breastfeeding you will likely need to eat more often to make sure that your milk supply doesn't drop. When you eat for your hormones you milk supply and your personal mood and energy will get even stronger.
5. WILL THE CAFFEINE (AND SUGAR) WITHDRAWAL BE TOO HARD TO KEEP UP AND I WILL JUST HAVE SUPER LOW ENERGY... I HAVE A LOT TO GET DONE?
If I can do it, so can you, love. We are eliminating all the common allergens (including caffeine and sugar) and I give tips to handle cravings, keep your digestive system going strong (I know many of you depend on coffee to help you with daily bowel movements, which is not the way to go), and help you find new ways of keeping your energy up that aren't adding extra stress to your body.
6. I'VE DONE CLEANSES BEFORE AND THE RESULTS NEVER LASTED, SO I AM HESITANT TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR CLEANSE.
My goal in this cleanse is to teach you new ways of nourishing yourself that you will fall in love with and continue on after the cleanse as well. I want you to learn, expand your understanding, and feel amazing way beyond this cleanse. Trust me! You will get a 62 page workbook that you can have for the rest of your life as a guide, resource and inspiration.
7. I HAVE TERRIBLE PMS, HEAVY PERIODS AND I JUST DON'T KNOW IF A 7-DAY CLEANSE WILL FIX THAT.
This is such a great question and you're right: if your body is experiencing deep hormonal imbalances, it is telling you that something is off. Nothing you do for just 7 days will fix that completely. The things I am teaching you in this cleanse about blood-sugar balancing and the recipes you will receive are all in support of your hormones and creating true, lasting balance naturally (& without the birth control pill).
No more excuses, love!
There is never the RIGHT time or the perfect undistracted 7-day period where doing a cleanse is convenient. BUT, you know as well as me that your health is just more important than mere convenience!
Your health is the cornerstone of everything you do, desire, and achieve.
It allows you to feel strong and vibrant.
It allows you to think clearly and creatively.
It allows you to attract amazing people and opportunities.
It allows you to be beautiful in your own skin.
It allows you to have amazing relationships with your friends and family.
It allows you to be happy.
AND, it's an important cornerstone in supporting your fertility.
NOW is the time! Let's do this for yourself and the people you love.
