For years, we’ve been conducting group detox events in the fall and the spring.  I’ve talked about the importance of detoxification in lectures, in my book (Boosting Your Immunity for Dummies) and with patients.  Now, there’s a chance for you to learn even more:  my friend and colleague, Deanna Minich, PhD, has organized an online Detox Summit, and it’s free!  Environmental toxins can be found in what you eat, drink, breathe, feel and think. You may not be aware of toxins, but if you want to be healthy, being educated on the latest in toxins is a must! Chronic conditions, like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity, may be associated with environmental toxins in your body.

The pearls of wisdom from expert speakers at The Detox Summit are essential to your health. Join us online for free from August 4-11.

This Detox Summit will provide you with the information you need to:

  • Learn about environmental toxins in food, air and water
  • Understand internally-generated toxins, like thoughts, emotions and behaviors
  • Recognize toxins of all types and eliminate them
  • Focus on breakthrough solutions to gain more energy and vitality

We’re now using the same software most yoga studios use, to make your lives easier (and save my staff calls as well!).  Sign up when you think of it, even if the office isn’t open.  Check the schedule for upcoming events.  Manage your payments online.  Even download the app so you can sign up from your smartphone!  Be able to check for class availability if you want to drop in (could save you a drive to the office if the class is full).  I’ve used this software at other studios and find it incredibly helpful; we think you will as well.
