Welcome to the Seasonal Cleanse!
I’ve never been a hardcore detox person. For the past 15 years I’ve seen scores of people “cleanse” and become depleted and feel worse, or feel great for 10 days of juice and rice cakes and then rebound—hard—into (dis)comfort foods and crappy habits.
But we’ve all heard it: there’s flame retardant in our breast milk, PCBs in our subcutaneous fat, and pesticide accumulating in our thyroid glands. Our fingers absorb BPA from store receipts, and our livers are being wrecked by Tylenol. There’s rocket fuel in our organic greens. These exogenous toxins can make it difficult for the body to clear its own waste products—natural by-products of digestion, cellular metabolism, and processes like inflammation.
Since our world is, undeniably, filled with toxic substances, it helps if we don’t add insult to injury by self-inflicting. So often we get caught up in our habitual comforts and shortcuts around food, self-medication and self-care, and we suffer for it. The body starts to squawk, and we experience digestive distress, brain fog, low energy, anxiety, joint pain, allergies, frequent colds, hormonal swings, blood sugar dysregulation, weight gain and skin inflammation.
There’s actually a lot we can do to offset the toxic onslaught. The body knows how to cleanse: it has myriad detoxification capacities, from microscopic enzyme systems inside our cells, to specialized organs like the liver and kidneys, and systems such as the lymphatics. We just need to get out of the way.
And this is how I came around to cleansing: I love the idea of getting out of my own way. As I get older (and hopefully wiser), I have come to realize that more often than not, it is my own entrenched thinking that can hold me back. The same applies to our bodies, and the patterns of disharmony and dysfunction that arise. Cleanses can help nudge us out of our physiological ruts.
I realized, too, that I had helped hundreds of people through the “cleanse” process without necessarily thinking of it in those terms. And that this process prompted profound and lasting shifts in my clients’ health—some quite surprising! The shifts included resolution of insomnia, joint pain, depression, anxiety, skin itching, PMS, and reductions in both pharmaceutical and natural medicine use. Cleansing can clear the way for multisystem reset. And that’s the premise of this cleanse.
The Farmacopia Seasonal Cleanse is a total system reset.
Following the rhythms inherent in nature, The Seasonal Cleanse takes you through the year, giving you the opportunity to get back on track and let go of what’s not working, while fueling your system with essential foods, herbs & nutrients to help you thrive in the next season.

Each season you’ll have the option to participate at your own pace. Choose between 3, 7 or 21 day formats.
Perhaps life is just a little too hectic during the Summer, so you opt for the 3 day plan. Or, if seasonal colds typically get you down, consider a more supportive experience as a 21 dayer during the New Year’s Cleanse. Our plans are safe enough to repeat several times throughout the season; if you feel you’ve gotten a little off course, by all means read & repeat!
