FALL CLEANSING w/FOOD & HERBS (4-week series)
Wednesday's: 11/6, 11/13, 11/20, 12/4
The age-old practice of cleansing is important to staying healthy and in alignment with the seasons!
Autumn is a deep time for letting go of what no longer serves and composting old patterns and beliefs in order to make room for harvest and the planting of new seeds.
As the days grow shorter and we begin to retreat inwards, fall calls forth the resilience of the colon and its ability to efficiently eliminate toxins that can build up in the body over time.
Functioning as the second largest channel of elimination, the colon is responsible for reabsorbing fluids and processing the body’s waste by-products.
This 3-week cleanse is designed for individuals seeking professional guidance in conjunction with the support of community along the way. You will be introduced to a family of colon-cleansing herbs
along with specific foods and practices that will support your detoxification pathways for a gentle clearing from the inside out. You will also walk away with firsthand experience and knowledge on the cornerstones
of a productive cleanse.
"I am so grateful to have been held and supported by Tanya in taking care of my body and spirit with the Spring Cleanse. I KNOW I would not have done it otherwise! From the supplement side of things to the emotional process of shedding, Tanya was right there with us, guiding and encouraging in such a loving and skillful way. I would definitely do it again. Thank you Sacred Roots Wellness for helping me to help myself."
- Alexis Lowenstein, MFT
"When I cleanse with Sacred Roots Wellness, I don't feel joint pain. When I cleanse with Sacred Roots Wellness, I don't experience insomnia. When I cleanse with Sacred Roots Wellness, I don't experience migraines. I have done this seasonal cleanse with Sacred Roots Wellness a couple of times. What makes this different from other cleanses is the focus on what you CAN eat instead of what you cannot. The other major difference is that the recipes are fortifying and you don't starve. Tanya Henderson has done her homework and understands on a very deep level the way in which specific herbs, supplements and food combinations promote detoxification, healing and longevity. Each time I participated in this cleanse, I felt pleased with the results of my investment because my health is worth it!"

"Tanya provides great detail and care to each cleanse, making it not only doable but fun to follow. Her knowledge and wisdom stayed with me far after the cleanse was over, supporting me to make the lifestyle changes I've wanted for years."
- Andrea Cortes-Juarbe, Dance & Expressive Arts Educator
"Our weekly meetings completely supported me in continuing to do this cleanse, as I really enjoyed the others in the group who were drawn to doing this work and appreciated the diversity of perspective among us. Our group happened to be all women, which grounded me. Once I began to understand the process of cleansing in loosening up the toxins in order to capture and eliminate them, this visualization helped me to stay committed to what was happening in my body. I even stopped craving sugar as a testament to bringing myself back into balance."
- Malena Mayorga, Community Organizer
"The cleanse itself allowed me to identify the root causes- psychological, emotional, spiritual, physical- of my sometimes unhealthy relationship to eating and food. Working with Sacred Roots Wellness also gave me ideas for meals that I still incorporate into my life years after my first cleanse. Ultimately, there is really no price that will pay for all of the benefits you will gain in your commitment to your cleanse and growth."
- Fermin Mendoza, Spanish Interpreter
"I worked with Tanya for the first time approximately 10 years ago. I was unsure of what a cleanse was but I was concerned about my overall health and wellness so I decided to give it a try. Tanya was available to answer questions about the products I would use and my food intake. Her product knowledge was really helpful. I learned how to use the product, read labels, understand how to interpret serving sizes, and get clear on how food works with the body. I was completely blown away! My awareness about food was reshaped from that point on! During the cleanse we had regular calls and discussions about what I was feeling and experiencing. I even kept a journal. After completion of the cleanse I felt lighter, and my mind clearer. I knew I would never go back to my old patterns. The impact of this first cleanse was life changing. It has been a journey for me and I continue to take additional steps each year to improve the quality of my life since having this experience. Today I continue to work with Tanya and I have become a student of hers in other modalities, such as yoga. I am forever grateful for the many ways my life has transformed under her care and instruction. I highly recommend her cleansing program. Give it a try, you will be glad that you did!"
