Scott, a 49-year-old man living a typical busy life, was relying on medications to get through his day. He would wake up feeling groggy and lethargic and would be falling asleep at his desk daily; he took that simply as a sign that it was time for more coffee. He went through the day feeling sluggish and had constant mood swings that were affecting both his relationships and his work. He was experiencing sore and achy joints and had horrible acid reflux that was so bad it was affecting his sleep; he was on high doses of Nexium as well as blood pressure medication.

As my teacher Joshua Rosenthal at Integrative Nutrition always said, “given half a chance, the body will heal itself.” In the past three years of supporting patients and customers on the Be Well Cleanse, I’ve heard lots of common responses: more energy, weight loss, better digestion. There have also been some more quirky or uncommon results that are pretty wonderful. These certainly won’t happen to everyone. It’s hard to say if they are the result of cleaning up your diet, taking the digestive supplements or the protein shakes -- or maybe a combination of all three. Either way, these surprising results are worth celebrating!
Have you ever thought about going on a cleanse but hesitated, not knowing which one to choose or if it’s the right decision for you? Here at Be Well, we get a lot of questions about cleansing, and we see patients every day who end up embarking on a cleanse and getting great results. We believe cleansing the body isn’t about starving yourself or skipping meals with family and friends. We focus on an elimination diet that rids the body of common allergens and inflammatory foods, and we add in shakes with detoxing nutrients that support liver function (the body's main detoxification organ) and supplements that get rid of bad bacteria in the gut and promote healthy digestion.
