Toxic chemicals abound in the world today – in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink. Although the body is designed to be self-cleaning, it cannot handle this overload. Chemicals not excreted accumulate in our fat cells and cell membranes. They become internal toxins.
The Group Cleanse is a 14 day communal program to eliminate these toxins. You will know exactly what to eat and when. You will have a group to rely on. And you will have a coach guiding you through every step.
When the body is under stress, it releases these toxic waste products from the fat into the bloodstream. Toxins can damage the protective intestinal lining, literally corroding the body from the inside out. The more the intestinal lining is damaged, the less effectively it absorbs nutrients, and the more toxins pass into the blood and lymph systems.
This is why elimination is so important during a cleanse! We aim to eliminate toxins from the body to avoid toxic overload. To avoid these symptoms and effectively reset the body it is important to keep all of the body’s channels of elimination open and functioning well. A number of cleansing activities are recommended in this cleanse, beyond changing your diet. The time and loving attention you devote to these activities for your body during your cleanse will be richly rewarded with improved health.
Nutritionally oriented health care practitioners believe that specific food allergies are related to metabolic toxicity. Symptoms from apparent food allergies may result from reduced enzyme concentrations and from intestinal bacterial endotoxins. One classic approach to eliminating or minimizing symptoms associated with food allergies is using a hypoallergenic diet or elimination diet (which is the approach we’ll be using in this cleanse.)
Foods that most commonly cause symptoms of a food allergy or toxicity are gluten containing grains, dairy products, eggs, soy, caffeine, yeast, sugar (and it’s many forms), dried fruits, citrus fruits and sometimes poor food combining. Avoidance of these foods has led to relief of symptoms in many individuals. By reintroducing these foods back into the diet individually, one is able to see clearly how their body reacts to that food. This gentle, yet effective approach is designed to support the liver’s detoxification pathways.
Improving intestinal health ensures the body can clear out excess toxins and operate at a high potential. It delivers an all access pass to boundless reserves of energy you didn’t know you had.
You’ll find that every part of your body works better simply by “switching on” your metabolism and body’s natural healing abilities.
A variety of nutrient dense, high fiber foods are conveniently planned for you, taking the guesswork out of wondering what is okay and not okay to eat.

I am living my life stress-free of food anxieties, feeling bad about my weight and food choices because of Amy Harrington. She has made such an ACHIEVABLE and SUSTAINABLE lifestyle for me. This behavioral change only took ONE MONTH with Amy’s 14 day group cleanse.
Amy came highly recommended to me by a colleague of mine. I was already on my health and weight loss journey but was looking for a more streamlined plan to put me on the right path. Amy is a lifesaver!
Working with Amy has made an incredibly positive and lasting impact in my life. Certainly from the physical health perspective but also on the emotional and spiritual side as well. She brings to the table a deep and diverse level of knowledge and experience in the field of nutrition, physical fitness and medicine.
I’m so impressed with how Amy approaches her role and the coaching relationships with clients. From day one, she took an approach that reached me in a new way. I was learning more about how my body truly functioned and what the real cause was behind my relationship with food.
