Cleanse for the New Year
Detox – But In A Good Way: If you're in NYC or will be, aren't squimish and open to trying new things, this might be for you: For an instant energy booster, weight loss jump-starter and internal clutter cleanser, New York's Sea Change Healing Center (which offers every imaginable spa and health treatment and looks dreamy) offers a Detox Program, monitored by a naturopathic physician, the three-week supervised detoxification program doesn't leave you starving for food, says a company rep. It’s designed to give the body a periodic rest from chemicals and toxins in the environment, say reps, who provided the following information. The program can be completed individually or in a group environment where participants are guided and encouraged effortlessly through the process of eliminating foods that detract from optimum health.
The Sea Change Detox Program is a three-week nutritional cleanse supervised by one of Sea Change’s Naturopathic Physicians. Participants are kept to a strict hypoallergenic diet that includes organic fruits, vegetables and grains, and is supplemented with nutritional vitamins, powders and shakes.
The program includes an initial individual meeting with the Naturopathic Physician to assess general health and individual goals, as well as three group sessions, including a breath class involving Somato Respiratory Integration, discussions on adjunct programs to enhance the detoxification process, tools for re-entry into healthier eating and wellness, and a final individual one-on-one visit with the Naturopath upon completion.
Sea Change offers Wellness Lifestyle Coaching as continuing support to this program. All materials, supplements and products are included in the program. Detoxification especially helps when we are feeling ill, stressed or simply want to jump-start the body into a healthier way of life.
Detoxification is also a good choice when experiencing symptoms of any health issues including: food intolerances, fatigue, frequent infections, digestive problems, joint and muscle pain, skin rashes, cellulite, decreased mental acuity or just a general feeling of disconnect. When the body is running at optimum capacity, toxins are neutralized by the liver and eliminated through the breath, skin, bowels and urination. When we push our bodies to meet the needs of busy lifestyles, however, these detoxification systems often become compromised and do not function properly.
Detoxification gives all the organs a rest, allowing the body the ability to heal and rebuild its immune system, and provides a better defense in fighting off illness and the effects of degenerative diseases so common in our chemically polluted environment.
A person can extend life by several years with regular detoxification. You heal faster, give your organs a rest, clean your liver and kidneys, purify your blood, cleanse your colon, lose unnecessary weight, rid toxin buildups in the tissues, eliminate cellulite, clear the eyes and tongue, cleanse the breath, and lose excess water.
Proper diet and supplements, exercise, and regular detoxification will more than double your energy and keep you well and happy. Sea Change suggests participants complete a supervised detox seasonally (four times a year) to keep the bodymind in optimum health. Participants can begin a detox program at any time. Group programs are seasonal, with the next to begin in April. Another will begin in September.
The three-week individual or group program, including supplements and details specified above, costs $495. The Sea Change Healing Center is a mind/body wellness center located at

Telemacher, "God, it really clears out your head," to which Telemacher responds "Head? Head? You should go back in there and tell them they're doing it wrong.")
