Gratitude Detox - Review
Pay-What-You-Want Guided Cleanse with Ashley Pitman
There are a few people that I really admire and look up to. They are good at what they do, passionate about their teachings, and deliver the best products into this world. One of these people is Ashley Pitman, the founder of the virtual ashram www.vixi.com
Ashley writes great, very visual articles and shares amazing recipes with her followers. She is a great inspiration and has a very easy-going happy vibe about her.
Recently, Ashley surprised me and all her followers with a very generous gift. She created a guided detox program and made it donation based. How cool is that?!
This takes some true ‘letting go’ and trust in people’s goodness. To give without expectation of receiving back is a true generosity!
in a world where you have to pay a lot of money for good quality things, many of you might be doubting the quality of the content. I decided to check on my own what the program was about. Let me just tell, it is a lot more than I could imagine.
First, I was surprised by how thorough it is. Over 100 pages of info, resources, and recipes! That took some work!
Ashley covers each day of the 5 day cleanse step by step. Daily routine, menu, inspiration quotes, and gratitude practices. She provides a lot of great recipes, detox basics and guidelines, and replies to frequently asked questions before you even have to ask them.
Gratitude Cleanse is not just a food detox, it has a big emotional and mental component to it. I am a strong believer that thoughts effect us just as much as the food that we eat, so I truly connect with the emotional aspect of detoxification. Ashley offers several detox-helpers such as dry brushing, salt baths, colon hydrotherapy, and massage practices to help the body to get rid of the toxins.
The recipes are raw-food based and beginner-friendly. There is a detailed grocery shopping list so you won’t be left guessing starring at the green aisles of Whole Foods. While I personally feel more grounded and balanced with the presence of cooked grains in my diet, if I were to do a raw food cleanse, it would be in the Summer. Right now is the best time to do it, so go for it! Summer is warm and it is easier for our bodies to rely on seasonal raw food.
Who is this program for:
- anyone who is feeling the call to shift into a more clear, essential and nourished place.
- anyone feeling grey. Less than luminous. Not ideal. A little heavy. In a slump. In-between loving your life and wanting more.
- anyone who’s never tried going raw for a few days. (While I do believe that a raw food diet is not for everyone, it doesn’t hurt to give it a try and let your body decide if you like it)
To learn more and to sign up for the program, go to Vixi’s page. To find out if your body needs a detox, take a look at your tongue as Ashley recommends.
