DETOX Workshop

Detox Your Body & Home
By:  Dr. Claudia Tamas

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about Detox programs.  People are seeking ways to cleanse their bodies of toxins for many reasons:  weight loss, heart burn, digestive problems such as gas and bloating, acne and other skin problems, body aches and pains, fatigue or just to become healthier.  With the marketplace filled with more and more processed foods, additives, sweeteners and convenience / fast foods to assist with hectic schedules, our bodies need to work harder than ever to get rid of these toxins we consume.  And when we also consider the environmental toxins we are exposed to from the chemicals, dyes and fragrances in cleaning products, make-up, beauty products, and air fresheners…just to name a few – it certainly is time to DETOX!

The good news is the body has its own natural daily cleansing process to eliminate or filter out the toxins through the use of the liver, kidneys, colon, intestines and skin!  Our job is to expose it to the least amount of environmental toxins and give it the best possible nutrients to be able to do its job well!

Nutrition impacts every aspect of our health.  Food is not merely fuel for our bodies; it becomes our body as the nutrients are utilized to create structures that make up our muscles, bones, hormones, organs and brain!  Therefore all the systems in our body are influenced greatly by what we eat.  The quality of our food has far reaching impact on just about any chronic health condition, so everything we eat can bring us either closer to health and wellness or closer to illness and disease.

Through empowering and educating people on optimal nutrition and ways to limit toxic exposure, we can create health for ourselves, our families and our community.  Identifying and eliminating sources of toxicity and learning how to prepare foods that promote health and strengthen the immune system is key to not only our own health and wellness but also for our children.  Determining sources of toxic exposure in our homes and learning how to eliminate them will give our children and loved ones the best possible environment to heal, repair and thrive.

Come learn how to reduce the toxins you are exposed to for a long and healthier lifespan for you and your loved onesLearn about juicing, smoothies and other ways to use food to support optimal health, healing and detoxification.  We’ll also provide you with resources to find clean makeup and body products.  Sample some of Dr. Claudia’s favorite juices and smoothies and enjoy making a few of her cleaning, beauty and body products to take home with you to begin your journey to a less toxic body and home!

Carrot Cake Bites

Wondering what to do with the pulp after juicing your carrots?
Try making these no-bake Carrot Cake Bites!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups of pulp from juicing carrots (or 1 1/2 cup finely grated carrots)
2 cups of nuts (almonds, walnuts and/or pecans)
1 cup of pitted dates
1 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground Ginger
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
1/4 tsp. Salt

Directions:
Juice carrots until you have 1 1/2 cups of carrot pulp. Or if you do not have a juicer, finely grate carrots and use a paper towel to absorb the excess water from the carrots.

In a food processor, process the nuts and dates until paste-like.  Add 1 cup of the coconut and the spices. Process until combined.

In a large bowl mix the nut mixture with the carrots.

Using a scoop or your hands, form dough into bite sized balls, then roll in remaining 1/4 cup of shredded coconut.

Chill for 30 minutes and enjoy a healthy snack that happens to also be gluten free and vegan.

Juicing vegetables is great for anyone who is interested in becoming healthier. Juicing your own fresh vegetables is not only more cost effective than purchasing prepared juices, but it is also healthier.  Learning how and what to juice is important in gaining all the health benefits of juicing to help combat everything from a cold to chronic diseases.

Many store bought juices contain large amounts of fruit instead of vegetables which can spike your blood sugar and insulin levels.  Other than green apples, fruits should not be juiced but eaten fresh.  Vegetables of all colors and varieties such as carrots, beets, spinach, chard, kale, broccoli stems, cabbage and celery should make up most of every juice. When blood sugar is a concern, leafy greens should make up to 80% of each serving. Store bought juices are also usually pasteurized to give them a longer shelf life which destroys many nutrients.  Fresh juice is unpasteurized so the taste and nutrients are preserved providing the most health benefits.

Juicing is different than making smoothies.  A juicer breaks down the food into a liquid form and separates it from the fiber.  Removing the fiber and extracting the juice enables the body to instantly absorb nutrients to nourish our cells, facilitate detoxification and optimize our health.  It gives your body more of what it needs with less food to digest.  This gives your colon, liver, kidneys, bladder and intestines a break and can help you have a healthier digestive system.  Our ability to absorb nutrients can be deficient due to unhealthy lifestyles, pollution and gut dysbiosis.  With juicing you increase your chance of getting better absorption, almost instantly! Consuming large amounts of nutrients found in juice also supports your immune system which can help you gain control of many chronic diseases and health issues.

Many people who struggle eating their veggies can consume more by juicing.  It’s a great way to help you eat your 6-8 servings a day! Juicing allows you to consume more nutrients by adding a variety of different vegetables which perhaps you normally wouldn’t cook, but throwing them in a juicer is simple. Without the pulp, the body can quickly and easily absorb the nutrients to improve your nutrition and health.  Drinking just one freshly pressed juice each day is an excellent way of infusing your body with a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can protect your cells against premature aging and disease. Although, juicing should not replace eating fresh whole fruits and vegetables because having fiber is your diet is important for your digestive system.  To be sure you get enough fiber and nutrients in your diet a proper balance between juice and solid food is important.

Come see how easy it is to juice! Learn how to combine powerful ingredients to cleanse, detoxify, hydrate and nourish your cells to help fight inflammation, ward off colds and flu, help prevent cancer and/or reduce harmful side effects of cancer treatments, soothe an upset stomach, and much more to help your body thrive! You’ll also get to sample some of Dr. Claudia’s favorite juices and take home her recipes.
