Cleansing and Detoxification: A great antidote for Adrenal fatigue symptoms

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


If you are tired and run down, quick to anger, have blood sugar problems or difficulty concentrating, you may be suggering from adrenal fatigue or exhaustion. Adrenal fatigue treatment may include some combination of rest and relaxation, herbal support,vitamin and mineral supplementation, especially Vitamin C, the B complex vitamins, zinc and magnesium,and diet changes. The diet that I find to be most successful with patients suffering from adrenal fatigue is high in fresh, whole living plant based foods, especially green leafy vegetables.

For the past year, I’ve been doing group green smoothie cleanses every 2 months.  Cleansing and a simple living foods diet are great ways to combat adrenal fatigue and exhaustion, calm an irritable bowel, and overall reduce the stress on your body and increase your energy.  Adrenal fatigue is common at the end of the year, due to the stress of the holidays, increased processed food intake and overall sense of overwhelm.

I had decided to skip my December green cleans program because I figured everyone would be busy with holiday preparations and wouldn’t have the time.  As December progressed, I began to really want to do the cleanse. I guess I’m a creature of habit. Anyway, I got to thinking that perhaps a short cleanse would be a good idea.   I’ve been a bit exhausted myself, with all the work to do this time of year and lack of sleep.  So I decided to a mini green smoothie cleanse. I plan to start Tuesday night at dinner time and continue through Friday, December 19. Would you like to join me?

It will be fun! It’s also a great way to get ready for the holidays. There’s no charge. I’ll be sending you an email message each day, sharing recipes and motivating you to stick with it. I can do a brief check-in call on Wednesday evening if you have any questions or want some support. Basically you can either.

A- drink nothing but Green Smoothies for 3 days
B- drink a lot of green smoothies and also eat raw foods only
C- drink 1-2 or more smoothies each day and eat your regular diet the rest of the time.

The 3 day mini Green Smoothie Cleansing Program is free, and so is the Drink Your Greens recipe book at www.drritamarie.com/green

The full green cleanse program is extremely helpful if you are showing signs of adrenal fatigue.  Since a lot of adrenal fatigue can be helped with a gluten free diet as well as a living and raw foods diet, the green smoothie cleansing program is a very helpful jump start on repairing the stressed adrenal glands.

I’d appreciate if you’d join me on this mini green smoothie cleanse. I need the support of the group to follow through on doing the cleanse. We’ll do the full cleanse again in January 2009. Actually I have a surprise planned for January which I’ll be announcing soon. Let’s just say that you’ll be able to get a longer green and living foods coaching program to start the new year off right.

And if you sign up for the full green cleanse program before the end of the year, you’ll get special treatment and pricing for the new program.

I plan to start the cleanse right away, on Tuesday evening, December 16. My dinner will be a green smoothie.

Let’s have fun with this, ok?

Love and health,

Dr. Ritamarie
