Being a nurse, Miranda was apprehensive when she first heard of detox growing in popularity. After having gone through YogiDetox herself, however, Miranda has seen first-hand the massive benefits detoxing has had on her health. Gale and Miranda chat about the transformational experience that this program has brought to so many people. Often in our busy modern lives, it can be really great for us to take a step back from things that aren’t serving us. Detoxing allows us to remove ourselves from our everyday lifestyles, so we can more easily cut out foods that we don’t realize are negatively impacting us.
Additionally, it encourages
stricter adherence to practices and habits that serve us well, such
as going to bed early. Cate Stillman has designed YogiDetox so that
you have the power to design your own detox and do it how you want.
Miranda emphasizes how it is less about increasing stress through
strict adherence to guidelines, and more about doing the things
that you know serve your health best. Detoxing allows us to get
back into alignment and balance with ourselves, and YogiDetox
provides the support we need to get there.
