Accountability is key to making positive changes for your health!

I always knew accountability was important.  I realized this, 13 years ago when I graduated from Naturopathic College.  I was about to embark on the career of my dreams and I wanted to try everything out – especially cleansing!

I would try all these different programs, supplements, exercise regimes and I would last 3 days, 5 tops!!! For real; I could not keep it going, and it was frustrating.

A few years later, I was having a conversation with Casey Soer from Spynga.  She asked me “if I was into cleansing!?”.  I said yes, but I could never do it on my own.  That day we committed to each other, and slowly we got a group of about 12 people who were committed, and it happened! I kept it, we all did and we all felt amazing! ……and the next thing I knew CLEANSE FOR LIFE was born……

This program is based on making lifestyle changes that will CHANGE the way you eat, think and live – so you can achieve the health you deserve – abundant and symptom free!  The foundation of this program is accountability and group support. The brain is able to change in different way when we are connected and accountable.

I witness this for a living.

I know for a fact, the cleanse for life program would not have grown to where it is today, without the group aspect – for those who have done the program, you know it is key and fundamental.  Working with people so closely for the past 13 years, I realize how hard wired our brains are.  We all want change, we can make good choices, and then LIFE HAPPENS – stress, anxiety, overwhelm – and we are back to our “comfortable choices” – but usually those are the ones that are also destroying our health.

While we know what to do logically, it is hard to translate.  This human condition is complex, and change is challenging.  Challenging, but VERY VERY POSSIBLE.  I see magic, growth and transformation every day and I know the honour and privilege it is to witness.  With the right support, accountability, and inner dedication and practice – changing your unwanted habits are possible (everything from too much coffee, sugar, night eating, and our unwanted PHONE addictions too!)

Because I have seen the importance of accountability not just over the 10 days, but post cleanse program to keep the awareness alive – I started this year a 1/month accountability meeting for all cleanse for life alumni.  We dive deeper into concepts around understanding the brain, how/why we are wired, so that we can being to shift and change WITHOUT judging our unwanted parts or habits, but working with instead of against.

“I derive immense pleasure from these meetings and I find it nourishes my soul.  There is so much phoniness and a general lack of authenticity today that it’s refreshing to be with a group of people to have a “real” conversation and to learn from each other.  I’m so happy you told me about this and got me involved.” – Ronit Katz

We are just better TOGETHER.  AND face to face – not online, not on social, not with a barrier of a device.  Real, in person connection.  AUTHENTICITY. It really is medicine…..

If you are struggling to make changes in your life that will benefit your health, I highly recommend trying to join a group program and see how accountability allows you to soar!! I don’t say that lightly, I see magic and transformation happen daily. I am grateful for this beyond words.

I have two groups coming up next week for newcomers to the cleanse for life tribe!! Or for those who want a refresh…
