with Lamia Gibson, R.Ac.

It’s Autumn. You might be worn out from the pandemic or struggling to meet the demands of life.  You need to focus on you alongside responsibilities of work, family, health, school….  and you want to get your energy back up. Is there any time for you in this hectic pace?

You don’t want to stop what you’re doing (and you’re likely not able to anyway) but you also want a boost for your life!  Maybe you’ve tried eating superfoods, taking power naps, or taking all the supplements but none of it works long term to feel more energy.

Or maybe … you just want to try something new!

What you really want is to increase energy for the long haul and you’re open to making changes but don’t want to let go of the favourite foods and habits that bring you fun and pleasure.

You want more energy and you want to keep living life your way!

The Release Cleanse is designed to raise your energy and let go of habits that no longer serve you while luxuriating in the habits you love.

During the one-week cleanse tucked inside this 6-week group program, we will use foods, herbs, insight and clarity, to invigorate Qi and increase vitality. I want you to get the most from your food every day for the rest of your life!

Rather than trying a general one-size-fits-all cleanse, you’ll get tailored suggestions based on your unique health needs and wants in an initial one-on-one food consultation. Recipes, ideas, empathy and community support will help you stay on track and effectively raise your energy so you can use food to fortify you from the inside out. 

By the end of the program, you can confidently begin to let go of what zaps your drive and keep what brings you joy. 

Here are what some people have said about Renew Spring cleanse program a few months ago: 

I was having a particularly hard time when I chose to do the Renew Cleanse and there were many times I thought about quitting before I even started. 

Lamia was incredibly supportive and thoughtful. I was provided with the opportunity to do what felt possible, doable without self-judgement or judgement from others.

The only real preparation I did for the cleanse was cut down on coffee so that when the cleanse started I wouldn’t suffer any headaches. 

On the first day of the cleanse I had a hearty breakfast, a good lunch and then I ate pizza for dinner. It became clear that my cleanse would not be what I hoped and yet it was also what I needed. 

This is how the rest of the cleanse went for me. I ate cleansing foods until 6pm and then ate what I needed to throughout the evening. In the end, I wasn’t disappointed with myself because I learned so much about my body, cravings, desires and struggles. 

I had my first cup of coffee a month after the cleanse ended and I had such anxiety that I haven’t touched it again. Although I miss my morning ritual of coffee, my body is so much happier. 

I have switched my breakfast meals to something that sustains me throughout the morning and that feels better too. 

There is so much more I learned but I won’t share it all here. 

I will definitely do the cleanse again in the fall because I know that I will continue to learn about myself and my relationship with food.” – Renew Spring Cleanse 2021 Participant

RENEW is a powerful and approachable offering that clearly grows from Lamia’s many years of direct experience of working with whole foods, Traditional East Asian Medicine, Shiatsu, and other modalities of healing and transformation. I would not say I’m a “cleanse person.” In fact, I tend to view cleanses with some suspicion. RENEW was my first ever experience with a cleanse and I’m delighted that it was. I simply couldn’t have asked for a more compassionate, skillful, empathetic/empathic, and non-judgmental guide through this well-constructed and deeply effective process. Lamia’s wisdom and insight empowered me to undertake the six week program in a way that made sense for my life, my limitations, my apprehensions and aspirations, and my desires  all while encouraging me to learn and grow into modes of collective self-care that I will continue to work with as the weeks and months following this cleanse unfold. I am beyond grateful for both the personalized support and the integration of mindfulness that RENEW offered and for the chance to undertake this beautiful and challenging process in a supportive collective container. All to say, if you’re on the fence about participating, I can relate. Also: Trust your guts and GO FOR IT! Gut-up/gut-out healing is what brought me here and that’s what will keep me growing into this work for much time to come. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Renew Spring Cleanse 2021 Participant

The Release Fall Cleanse Program is for you if you: 

  • Want a cleanse that feels fully supported and actually works to boost energy
  • Like a clear plan on what to eat 
  • Are interested in taking a Chinese Nutrition approach
  • Want to raise vitality for your body and mind
  • Are excited to learn what your body needs and wants
  • Dream of having an easier time with food
  • Sense that doing a cleanse as a group would keep you on track and support you to where you want to be

This program is not for you if you: 

  • Want a food-free detox program instead (e.g. juice-based or fasting) 
  • Do not need more energy in your life
  • Don’t want to change your current eating plan 
  • If you want to do a detox on your own without a community of cleansers to support and prefer to do one-on-one sessions instead

Using principles of Chinese Nutrition and a person-centered approach, the Release Cleanse is here to help you increase your vitality, learn about your body and have the support you want for healthy habits that work all year long.

During the program, you’ll be supported through the cleanse AND discover healthy habits that work with YOUR body and YOUR schedule, making them much easier to integrate into your real life, for the rest of your life.

How It Works

We’ll start with a one-on-one Chinese Medicine Assessment and Food consultation. This session will help you and I see the big picture of your life and wants, and understand your specific health patterns and needs. That way, I tailor the program to you and make suggestions that meet you where you’re at so you get where you want to go!  Plus you’ll learn all about what your tongue has to say about your whole health!

Next, you’ll receive your personalized program package.  You’ll give me a general idea of what you eat day-to-day: what foods you like, what you don’t or what you’re allergic to. Then I make you a personalised shopping list to get you ready for the cleanse, and lay out the details of what it will look like, taking the stress out of preparation and making your next steps crystal clear.  

Then, we meet (online) as a group! This is the beginning of getting to know the other participants and understanding that you’re not alone in this process. Together, we’ll go over how East Asian Medicine understands digestion and the benefits of a whole foods diet. Everyone gets to share their fears, worries, curiosity and excitement, so you can start drilling down to what you want in your relationship with food and feel supported every step of the way.

You’ll start your herbs on week three — they’re included in the cost of the program — and I promise the instructions are straightforward! They’re designed to be simple and don’t interact with medications or anything else (AND we’ll double-check that when we do your assessment!)

Throughout the program you’ll get email support, plus three more group meetings to focus on the preparation part, answer questions and connect with your cleanse-buddies, because I know how essential accountability and empathy are when it comes to successful cleanses.

Plus, you receive two weeks of daily email Possibility Prompts during cleanse week and impact week. These keep you on track — like a virtual cleanse buddy in your inbox every day!

The result?

You’ll feel invigorated, with a clearer mind and more energy. 

You’ll have a solid understanding of what’s up with your digestion and the do-able tweaks you can make to feel better, long-term. 

You’ll be in a community who gets what you’re going through, whether it’s before, during or after the cleanse. 

You will have these tools to help you feel better, inside and out, for the rest of your life!
