Inner Source Detox and Upcoming Events

January 2013

Inner Source Health is excited to introduce their new Detox program. Make Mine Detox is a 28 day gentle cleanse of the body designed specifically for you.

Many symptoms we experience in our daily lives are due to toxic overload. The liver becomes overburdened with the daily struggle to eliminate the harmful substances we are exposed to. When this occurs we begin to notice symptoms of fatigue, headaches, allergies, constipation, joint pain, poor concentration, irritability, skin and hair changes.

Make Mine Detox supports the liver and kidneys in their ability to neutralize and eliminate toxins. When we remove this heavy burden we can see weight loss, increased concentration, anti-aging effects and a decrease in the severity of many diseases.

Make Mine Detox is structured to be individualized. We will address your needs and teach you which foods will benefit your body and increase metabolism. You will be given easy to follow instructions and additional detox tips to enhance your experience.
