The 21-day Detox--Who Wants to Join Me?

I was watching The Dr. Oz show the other day and he was talking about alternative medicine. So, you know I was instantly glued to the television! He had Deepak Chopra on there speaking about the benefits of meditation, Dr. Mercola talking about the benefits of not relying on pharmaceuticals and Kathy Freston, author of Quantum Wellness:The 21-Day Essential Guide to Healing Your Mind, Body and Spirit

I have seen her before on Oprah, speaking about one of her books on natural wellness.  Well on the Dr. Oz show, she spoke about the one thing she felt like everyone should do.  It was a 21-day detox, or vegan cleanse, that she recommends be done one to two times a year.  With the detox, you are abstaining completely from:

  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Gluten (usually found in pastas and breads)
  • Red meat
I have been looking for ways to detox but, I did not want to have to drink a concoction.  Truth be told, I am scared to lose weight also! But, I think that I will start this detox in two weeks. I already stay away from caffeine, alcohol (for the most part), and red meat. Sugar, on the other hand, has always been a weakness of mine.  I try to use brown sugar or honey if I must sweeten something.  Every now and then though, I crave cake, ice cream and candy ( I have a real-life sugar addiction!)

I think that this Quantum Wellness Detox will definitely do my body some good.  I intend to start on July 9 th, when I get some things out of the way and can really focus on it.  I am going to stock up on lots of fruits, veggies, fish and whole grains.  I will be sure to let you know how it goes!

Who wants to join me on this 21-day detox on July 9th?  Have you ever done a detox?


  1. I would like to try it with you, but I know I'll end up veering off course! lol
    Can you share some of things you'll be eating? Like an example of a days' menu plan or something? Please!

  2. Sure Brandiss! I plan on eating LOTS of fruits and veggies. I will write a post on with details.


Let me know what your thoughts are. Leave a comment!!
