Alchemy Cleanse Testimonial

“I struggled with severe bouts of diverticulitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome for years. Some days I literally could not leave my house. Then my doctor recommended removing part of my colon. Before taking such a drastic step, I decided to start brothing. Every morning, before eating anything else, I drink 1 cup of warm, nourishing broth. It sounds like such a simple thing. But the effect it’s had on my digestive system (and my life) has been phenomenal.

Not only did I avoid surgery, I’m almost symptom free. And I have more energy than I ever had before.”

When I read the emailed flyer about a Fall Fortification and Immune Enhancing Cleanse upon my good friend’s insistence, my first thought was, “That’s about the last thing I want to do!” Recognizing that everything about it sounded like something good for me that I should be doing, but already feeling like I had so many shoulds in my life, I wanted to run the other way. Very fortunately, I didn’t. My second thought was, “If not now, when?” And I’ve gotten pretty good at listening to my second thoughts.

So onward I went into this journey with Esther Cohen, who had lead 10 years worth of cleanses, and soon it became something I wanted to do for myself each day, not something I should do. I poured over the pages of information in her Alchemy of Nourishment book, riveted by what I was learning. I felt completely guided and hand held as it was easy to read, easy to follow during the cleanse with daily and hourly instructions, and had complete recipe suggestions to boot. Not only was I bouyed by the support of close to 20 other women involved in the cleanse, but I got to attend 3 fabulous evening programs with so much learning and personal “ahas” about my own nutrition as well as an incredibly delicious dinner prepared by Esther. The recipe portion of Esther’s book was worth gold in and of itself. Using many of her flavorful and wholesome recipes during and ever since the cleanse, Esther is now vicariously the most popular person in my household. Did I mention she is also a chef?

My whole family now eats healthier, more savory meals on a regular basis, with her nourishing smoothies as snacks in between.

Although the cleanse was 3 months ago, I have continued working with Esther on my own health issues, and I literally feel like a new person. I have so appreciated her balanced, gentle approach to my healing, and I can’t say enough about the results!
