"I really did a soul search to find out my 'WHY' and stuck to it! Lost a total of 7 pounds in 5 days!"
Living with a chronic illness feels like a constant struggle...
At the age of 14, I found myself weighing close to 200 pounds, starting my life on an unhealthy note…
I couldn't run the mile in gym class. I struggled to make the cheerleading team because of constant back pain and not having the gymnastic skills due to being overweight. I got headaches so often my grandmother should have bought stock in Excedrin since I was using so much of it.
At an age where I was supposed at to be my healthiest and full of energy, I felt exhausted and felt my mobility declining.
I felt lost. Not just in my body, but in my mind and spirit. I knew that if I was going to fully live the many years I had ahead of me, something had to change.
All this to say that I’ve been exactly where you are right now…and I know the emotional rollercoaster that a chronic illness diagnosis can bring on…
The pang of jealousy as you watch the people around you indulge in foods you once loved, while you feel left out and restricted.
The confusion and frustration around what you’re supposed to be eating.
The constant tiredness and mental fatigue. You can’t remember the last time you ran around the yard with your loved ones or went salsa dancing with your friends.
The stress about the present and anxiety about the future keep you up at night. Getting a full 8 hours of sleep sounds like an elusive fantasy.
Maybe you feel alone. Like no one around you understands what you’re going through. Like your life will never be the same…
You are not alone!
When I started on my journey to recovery, I felt exactly like you feel right now. I wanted to live a full life and fulfill God’s will for me, but I didn’t know where to start.
Having a chronic illness should not keep you from living a happy, healthy life.
Imagine savoring a variety of delicious foods each day. Enjoying foods that nourish you and still satisfy your sweet tooth.
You've made simple yet powerful lifestyle changes that have not only improved your health markers but also put you on track to potentially reversing your chronic illness.
Every day you wake up bursting with energy, ready to take on the day. You’re playing in the yard with your loved ones again and swimming laps at the local pool. Enjoying all that life has to offer without pain or discomfort.
You’ve reduced your reliance on medication, or gone off your meds completely. You’re finally sleeping well again, drifting off effortlessly and waking up refreshed.
Your mind feels free and clear. Like a fog has lifted, and you can now see the world with newfound clarity and perspective.
You feel a strong sense of fulfillment and inner peace every day, guided by the loving presence of God. Through your faith, you have found solace and strength, and your spirit is lifted as you connect with the divine.
You’ve reclaimed control of your life and you feel excited about what the future holds.

"I truly enjoyed the 5-Day Detox program with Dr. Amanda. I really did a soul search to find out my "WHY" and stuck to it! Lost a total of 7 pounds in 5 days!"
"Initially I was skeptical about the entire process. I meal prepped for 5 days which allowed me to follow the detox. I learned about my cravings. I craved sugar and caffeine in the afternoon for pick me up. I don't need to eat because I am bored. I lost 5.2 pounds. After the detox was over, I have continued to meal and it has jumpstarted me into my positive lifestyle."
"As a non-vegan, I learned it was more than just veggies. It helped me try new things and enjoy clean eating. I've incorporated some of the things into my daily habits. I also lost 5 pounds, which is a plus."

Do I have to stop eating meat forever?It will be ultimately your choice whether to eat meat or not. I will discuss pros and cons for you to decide.
