Full Description

Are you a health coach looking to take your practice and clients results to the next level? Have you wondered about the power of juice cleanses, detox protocols, liver flushes and how to lead groups through the healing and rejuvenating process? Do you want an excuse to retreat to Costa Rica and treat your body to the ultimate cleanse with support from experts? Then jet set mid June for a week of pura vida bliss, in-depth detox education and rejuvenation with holistic detox expert Chris Whitcoe of Pure Joy Academy. After your week immersion at the beach surrounded by abundant wildlife, you'll float back home as a certified detox coach ready to educate, lead and empower others through the transformation.
What is not covered in the manual or mentioned heretofore is how eating these foods every day during your training will start to awaken your body, spirit and mind. You may find that drinking green juice for breakfast is an amazing way to start your day and you have more mental clarity than before. You may find that Chia Porridge is your new best friend! You will probably also notice that when you stop eating high glycemic foods, your blood sugar will stabilize and your mind will be able to focus better. Your mood may feel more balanced and you may begin sleeping better. We can assure you that you will not miss eating dairy, meat, sugar and breads or flours as we will be making some amazing gourmet creations that will replace toxic, comfort foods. This will be a life transforming experience not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. Join us for a super fantastic life-changing event!
