Wellness Reset

Check out this little wellness reset that I'll be doing this summer, & typically try to implement throughout the year. This reset is a combination of the following health cleanses I have done to ease the painful symptoms of my varying autoimmune diseases, along with the knowledge that comes with a lifetime of being sick, & bits of what I've learned studying Ayurveda & wellness coaching.

The books/resets below have truly changed my life, & helped me better understand why my body does not react well with certain foods, & the best way to care for my being. Check out the scientific evidence, research, & recommendations from the following amazing women for yourself!

Yay! I'm beyond excited to eat super clean, prioritize better sleep & share this experience with all of you!

Dr. Mitra Ray created her Shred10 cleanse for a 10 day period, while Magdalena Wszelaki recommends 4-8 weeks for her health reset, & Ann Boroch offers a 90 day period for the Candida Cure. All 3 are meant to rid the body of toxicity, bringing about balance & soothing inflammation. Whether it's 10 or 90 days, I feel clarity in my mind & so much better in my body when I avoid inflammatory foods. Choose the timing that feels right for you.

With that being said, let's get into the details of what we will be adding to/eliminating from our diets:


*focus: eliminating anything that has the potential to cause inflammation in the gut*

  • gluten

  • dairy

  • caffeine

  • alcohol

  • processed foods & refined carbohydrates

  • artificial + refined sugars - Boroch has us avoiding ALL sugar, even fruit, in order to kill off the candida bacteria - I try to eat as little sugar as possible.

  • nightshades (peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, etc.)

  • eggs

  • coconut

  • chemicals: pesticides, harsh cleaners & body/beauty care products

  • recreational drugs

No eating after 6PM is one of the Shred 10 rules, but 6PM is way too early for me, so I use the guideline of no eating past 8PM, 9PM at the latest. The Ayurveda tip, no eating 2 hours before bed, works too!


  • more fruits & vegetables - lightly cooking veggies might ease digestion

  • eat organic foods - pesticides are terrible for you & our planet!

  • 7-9 hours of sleep daily - some folks need more/less sleep than others!

  • movement on most days - exercise, walk, yoga, hike, bike, HIIT class, pilates, dance, etc.

  • prioritize rest & relaxation as well

  • 30 fl. oz. lemon water* before consuming solids, & at least 1 gallon of water a day

  • clean skincare, body, beauty, detergents, & household cleaning products

  • more laughter & joy!

  • more time with loved ones & cultivating meaningful relationships

  • more time outside, enjoying nature & connecting with the Earth

  • take time to attune to your breath & breathe deeply

  • meditate, if possible - this could be a 5-20 minute guided meditation on an app, a yoga nidra class, a walking meditation, even gardening!

I know this list is a lot, especially when you're someone like me who is lactose intolerant, but loves to stuff their face with cheese, & DoorDash Dairy Queen Blizzards as much as possible. Remember to be kind to yourself. Any amount of progress is key. Pick & choose a few things to start with if it feels overwhelming, & notice how your body & mind feel with the changes!

Some of my FAVORITE anti-inflammatory foods

to help kick-start your gut health:

  • unsweetened organic aloe juice

  • turmeric + black pepper

  • jasmine green tea

  • berries: raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, blackberry

  • bone broth

  • ginger - can be warming & cause too much heat in some

  • rosemary

  • kefir

  • garlic

  • some mushroom varieties like Reishi, Chaga, Lion's Mane, Oysters, Cordyceps, etc.

A few healthy, yet delicious, recipes:

WHY am I doing this for my body & mind? Due to food quality decrease & increase of toxicity on our planet, many of us are seriously lacking all of the micronutrients (vitamins & minerals) we truly need to live a full, healthy, abundant life. Eliminating processed foods while implementing more plants allows our bodies, minds, & spirits to run much more efficiently. Just think of how you feel after consuming a small steak filet with a side of roasted sweet potatoes & crispy brussel sprouts vs. how you feel after a milkshake, french fries & a cheeseburger. Both are delicious, but one will make you feel a hell of a lot better, I'd say.

You were not brought to this planet to live day-to-day feeling fatigued & unwell. Be the best version of you!

*use a fresh squeezed organic lemon for your lemon water to detox the body - a slice or 2 does the trick!
