Ever wonder what the opposite of the film "Super Size Me" would be like? With a tip of the headdress to Morgan Spurlock of "Super Size Me," Jenna Norwood takes us on her journey to see what happens when she enrolls in a raw food detox center and consumes only organic, raw, enzyme-rich foods for 30 days. It's all in an effort to fit into a Las Vegas showgirl costume for Halloween, but the experience has some surprising results. Meet experts (David Wolfe), celebrities (Ben Vereen & Kathy Sledge) and others seeking to resolve serious health issues on a raw food diet. Takes the mystery out of colon hydrotherapy, too. An entertaining, educational and inspiring documentary. A detoxifying experience! Unofficial PG rating, according to MPAA guidelines.

Blended Food Cleanse & Juice Fasting Group
with Donna Perrone

Fasting can help to wipe the slate clean of addictive food cravings, overeating, and fatigue. Get back on your healthy eating! This juice fasting group will include the option to consume raw blended soups. Some of you have expressed interest in conducting a juice fast, but feel it to be a little too extreme or feel intimidated by taking on such an endeavor. So, we will cover all the details to conduct a juice fast, as well as incorporating a blended food cleanse if you chose to. You may do a partial juice and partial blended food cleanse, or may choose to start off with blended food and switch to juice later in the fast or visa versa. We will discuss what options may be best for you.This is a great way to experience a cleanse in a modified way.

Kathleen is a Clinical Aromatherapy & Healing Hands Practitioner. She has been using Young Living Essential Oils since 1999. When major healing health changes began to happen in her life from using Young Living Essential Oils, it became her life's passion to share these oils with others.

Kathleen has been blessed with the opportunity to travel and study with Gary Young, the founder and President of YLEO, while visiting the Young Living farms around the world. She has learned about these precious oils from Seed to Seal and the care that goes into each and every drop.

In this class you will learn:

Why all essential oils are NOT created equal and why it is important for you to know the difference.

How to safely and effectively use essential oils by incorporating best practices from the British Model, the French Model and the German Models.

How to incorporate essential oils into your life on a daily basis by answering the most common questions-"How do I know which oil to use?" and "What can I use oils for?"

Both participate in and learn how to perform a "Heart, Mind, Body, Spirit Balancing Protocol" using essential oils.

Bring your sense of smell and begin with the first drop.

Allergies, Deficiency of Essential Fatty Acids, Candida, Toxemia, and Stress.

Although, I am not a doctor I have researched this condition in detail. To cure Eczema means doing your own detective work to discover its cause.

For many years, I have been completely cured of Eczema, and have a tremendous amount of information to share with you on this subject.
