Ready to feel lighter, clearer and more energetic?
There are so many different cleanse and detoxes out there, mostly involving juices, not eating very much. You might be wondering how this is different, why it would work and is 3 days really enough?
Saffron of The Yoga Studio did our 3 Day Cleanse and gave a review on her Facebook Live. Here's a snippet!
Your body is actually designed to detox itself. Your kidneys, skin and liver are all detox organs designed to find toxins and flush them out of your system. The problem is, for most of us, our body's ability to cleanse itself is compromised because of the almost constant exposure to toxins. This is the reason we need a regular cleanse and the point of the Eat Live 3 Day Detox is to support your body's natural healing mechanisms by;
1. Resting Your Digestion
By mono-mealing (eating the same diet) for 3 days with kitchari your body is able to use it's resources to repair itself rather than just being in a constant state of digestion.
2. Resetting Your Gut
Around 70% of your immune system is in your gut. What this actually means is that the good bacteria located in your gut is what fights off bad bacteria- which is what causes illness.
In order to heal your gut needs to two main things - First, food and sustenance for your existing probiotic (good bacteria) colonies - these are know as Prebiotics. Second, Probiotics - so lots more friendly bacteria and lots of different strains, as each strain do different jobs in your gut to keep you well.
3. Aligning Your Mind
We've all tried to make positive lifestyle changes in the past, but however amazing your goals are you won't achieve them unless your subconscious mind is in alignment with your physical mind. You actually need to identify with the healthy new you that you aspire to, willpower alone is not enough. This is why I enlisted a cognitive hypnotherapist to record a tailor made hypnotherapy download for my detoxers so that you that as soon as you order you can start listening to begin reprogramming your subconscious to align with your physical goals.
“enjoyed the food on the kitchari cleanse - I could happily live on that! Felt clear headed by Tuesday pm and lost 2.5kg. Will definitely do it again. Thank you! “

Ayurveda (meaning the science of life) originates from India and is the world's oldest healthcare system. In Ayurveda kitchari is eaten exclusively for a few days as a seasonal detox
DO YOU NEED TO DETOX?
Unless you've been living in nature, eating a completely unprocessed diet, supplementing to compensate for our nutrient depleted soil then yes, you most likely you need a detox. An ideally a regular one to give your body and cleanse and reset each season. Just like you don't just wash your face once, a regular cleanse internally is such a beneficial practice and something that herbalists and Ayurvedic practitioners have been recommending for years. Here are some signs your body could do with a help detoxing.
1. Fatigue and low energy
Struggling to make it throughout the day without feeling like you could do with a nap? Post meal slump and heaviness after eating? When I started detoxing regularly and feeding my gut with pro and prebiotics I remember being surprised that it was possible to have so much energy and to go through the day feeling energised, because I hadn't experienced it for so long I thought being tired all the time was normal!
2. Skin Issues
Your skin is one of the first indicators that all is not well in your body. So if your skin is constantly erupting with spots, rashes, itchiness, boils and even inflammatory conditions like eczema it's definitely time for a detox.
Headaches can be caused by lots of reason but high levels of toxins are definitely one them. In particular studies show high levels of heavy metal are linked to chronic headaches and migraines.
4 Difficulty Losing Weight
If you've been trying to lose weight and it seems harder than usual one of the best thing you can do is to start healing your gut with pre and probiotics. Did you know that through the gut-brain connection bad bacteria send messages to your brain to crave unhealthy food - the kind that feeds the bad bacteria and makes you ill. The stronger your colonies of bad bacteria the more they can make their host (you) crave unhealthy food so it becomes a vicious cycle. When you detox you starve your bad bacteria and feed your good bacteria. This, along with the subconscious reprogramming through the hypnotherapy helps you break the cycle.
5. Brain Fog
Having trouble remembering names and words or even just staying with the same thought?! Removing sugar, processed foods and cleansing with the detoxing herbs included in the detox, like Spirulina and Barley Grass is amazing for restoring clarity and improving your focus. This detox also incorporates a large quantity of Medium Chain Triglycerides oil at breakfast, lunch and dinner which early studies are showing can significantly improve the cognitive results of dementia patients within hours - so imagine what it could do for you! See further down for more information on this and all the gorgeous healing food incorporated in the the detox.

READY TO FEEL LIGHTER , CLEARER AND FULL OF ENERGY?
Here are some of the gorgeous, healing and nutrient dense foods, spices and herbs that you'll enjoy on the Detox
MCT Oil (medium chain triglycerides) is amazing for the brain. Because of it's chemical structure it goes straight to the liver fueling your brain and keeping you feeling full, this is why it is often used as part of the Keto diet. I include it in as part of the kitchari and also as part of breakfast. I use pure MCTs derived from coconut oil.
In addition to combining with the Spirulina to bind with toxins and carry them through your digestive tract, Barley grass is also rich chlorophyll, antioxidants and iron. I use raw, organic ground Barley grass. Spirulina
In addition to combining with the barley grass and wild blueberry to bind to toxins and flush them out of your system, spirulina is an excellent source of iron, B vitamins and vitamin C. It decreases blood glucose levels and early research seems to show it is good for brain health.
Hemp is an amazing source of vegan protein, omega 3 and 6 and Vitamin E. Hemp is linked to lower levels of heart disease and helps to balance hormones. The hemp I use is raw and organic.
Mustard seeds are used widely in Ayurvedic cooking because as well as being linked to lower blood sugar levels they contain natural enzymes that make food easier to digest which is vital when detoxing
Yellow split dal is extremely digestible and nourishing and with the quinoa is aa great source of vegan protein. The beans and quinoa I use are organic.
Derived from tree bark, slippery elm mixes with hot water to create jelly like consistency. It helps you with elimination (going to the loo) a vital part of any detox and is also a powerful prebiotic which means it feeds both the probiotics already living in your gut and those that you add through the fermented veggies.
Used widely in Ayurvedic cooking the compounds have been shown to combat oxidative damage, lower blood sugar levels. It detoxifies metals and early research shows it seems to improve memory.
Wild blueberries are not the same as the cultivated ones you find in the supermarket. Their antioxidant level is sky high, they feed your brain, detoxify heavy metals and along with the spirulina, barley grass and coriander combine to draw and bind to toxins carrying out through your digestive tract.
The active anti inflammatory and antioxidant compound in Turmeric curcumin has far reaching benefits such preventing heart disease, alzheimer's and even cancer. It has also been shown to treat arthritis and depression.
I felt less bloated..and on Day 4 am still feeling good for having tried the Cleanse.
The kitchari dish and smoothie were delicious and the slippery elm seems to be a miracle cure for everything.

'Matteo likes it too. I let him taste it then he came back with a bowl and spoon...He devoured the lot, he even went in for anything he dropped in his bib!'
ps - my little girl takes my kitchari to school in her lunch box!
Hi I'm Emma. I'm a herbalist, mum, and solicitor. I got into herbs, gut health and Ayurveda after I had my two children Jessica and Ethan and I became chronically ill. Getting nothing but back to back courses of antibiotics from my (very well meaning) GP I sensed that healing through food and lifestyle was the answer.
I was never drawn to overly restrictive detoxes because I've found the shock to your body can make matters worse. For me the Ayurvedic seasonal kitchari cleanse is the perfect way of resetting your body.
I have amended the traditional cleanse to include detoxing herbs that actually bind to toxins and carry them out through your digestive tract. I also add pre and probiotics through my kimchi and sauerkraut that you eat with your kitchari to reset your gut.
The Eat Live Cleanse gives your body a really effective cleanse and reset without deprivation and you can even use it to kickstart weight loss.
