October 7-28, 2019
From time immemorial, we have always had this instinctive, intrinsic need to cleanse. To renew. To press the reset button and become refreshed. To lighten the load, create a clean slate, and be ready for the new.
Join us this fall commencing Monday October 7 for 21 days of Radiant Detox. You have the opportunity to join a virtual community of like-minded people, or do it solo, whichever path is best for you, or a combination of the two! The Fall Detox is all about strengthening and supporting our immune system and whole body, mind, and spirit to prepare for the cooler, darker months in the western hemisphere. Cold and flu season will be upon us, as well as a time of more reflective living. This cleanse prepares us for both.

Radiant Detox is all about abundance, not deprivation! It's a powerful program I’ve put together after seeing excellent results with many of my clients. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen or imagined!
Toxins and stress create hindrances for the normal functioning and self-healing capabilities of our bodies.
Our bodies are facing nutritional gaps between the modern diet, soils that are depleted of vitamins and minerals, and stress levels that choke off what we need to function at optimum levels.
By removing the barriers and providing what is lacking, our bodies bounce back into health, energy is restored, and we begin to look and feel our best.
We look at:
The Seven Systems of our Body
We energize and optimize their individual functionality as well as their connection with each other through the right food, the right movement, and the right thinking.
In Radiant Detox Color is King and we flow with vibrant color from foods that give us life, powerful healing, and cleansing.
There are 21 days to this journey starting October 7 and going until October 28, 2019. We spend three days exploring each System. We will concentrate on supporting and nourishing each part of our physiology with life-giving foods and energizing movements beneficial for that body system. Since we are a whole entity - body, mind and spirit, we also consider our thoughts and emotions and how powerfully they affect us.

What does “detox” mean?
Since time immemorial, man has been detoxifying. Whether it was from eating too much during a time of feasting, or the use of blood letting and leeches to heal or remove toxicity, man has practiced some form of detoxification. The sweat lodges of the American Indian, the panchakarma of Ayurvedic medicine in India, a 5-fold system of using herbs, oils, sweat, etc to purify oneself.
Today, in a more traditional understanding, detoxification has come to be understood as aiding people from alcohol and drug addictions. There is yet another classification of detoxification, and that is targeting our exposure to environment toxicity that is threatening the planet, mankind, and all life. There is the existence of this low-grade state that, to one degree or another everyone is exposed to through the air we breath, the water we drink, the food we eat, in our cities, in our suburbs, and in our rural areas.
The Radiant Detox program includes nutrition, meditations, affirmations, yoga movements, and visualizations to facilitate the removal of toxins from body, mind, and spirit.
Why do we have to “detox” if our bodies are already capable of getting rid of toxins?
In today’s world, we are bombarded with more chemicals than ever. It’s been estimated that there are 80,000 chemicals in our environment, not including the toxins we make inside of us from stress, inflammation, or dysbiosis (gut microflora imbalance). The fact is that we aren’t all created equal when it comes to being in balance and healthy.
Every organ in the body has mechanisms in place for getting rid of toxic waste, but some organs carry much of the weight, like the liver, kidneys, gut, skin, and lungs.
If our livers are congested with fat, we are not going to have proper function of liver enzymes to get rid of toxins. We may also have different functioning of these liver enzymes depending on our genetics.
If we aren’t drinking enough water or drinking impure water, we won’t be able to harness the power of the kidneys to excrete the toxins through the urine.
If we are constipated or have an imbalanced gut microflora, we won’t be passing toxic metals through our body efficiently.
If we aren’t sweating through the skin because we are not exercising, we won’t be getting rid of multiple chemicals we are storing inside of us.
And, if we aren’t taking deep breaths and if we are living in polluted areas, chances are we are impeding the lungs ability to exhale out particulates.
All in all, knowing what we know now about the body and the environment, it doesn’t make good biological and biochemical sense to not focus on detox because we are already detoxing. Each of us is different in our capacity to cleanse. An accumulation of toxins and lack of nourishing inner support of mind, body, and spirit could be at the root of our symptoms.
Who is detoxing recommended for?
Depending on the program, detoxing can be for everyone. We all have exposure to elements that do not serve us or have our body's best interest in mind. Detoxing is even for those who feel they are in reasonably good health. The absence of disease does not guarantee the presence of health. Many suffer from undiagnosed gastrointestinal issues, fatigue, joint pain, unexplained weight gain or inability to loss weight, poor sleep quality, low energy, low libido, irritability, and a compromised well being.
Why 21 days?
Radiant Detox is 21 days to give the body, mind, and spirit time to rewire, creating new, lasting, lifestyle changes. It has been said it takes 21 days to change a habit. In Radiant Detox we journey through the seven systems of the body, spending three days on each system, therefore it takes us 21 days to go through the program.
Why don’t most nutritional detoxes last?
Most programs are one or two dimensional, focusing on the liver, kidneys, or colon. There may be a temporary ease of symptoms, while the program is going on, only to revert back to the state of dis-ease that existed before. Because we look at the body as an exquisite, inter-connecting entity, we are able to go system-by-system, supporting, nourishing, and detoxifying the whole body. In this way we can see deep, long-lasting results that are completely sustainable through simple nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Why is Radiant Detox different?
Radiant Detox is different in many ways. We offer a broad-spectrum of modalities that you can pick and choose from. There is the food aspect, where we focus on colorful foods that aid in the detoxification process. We suggest a wide range of various types of exercise and movement, guided meditations, visual affirmations and spoken affirmations, and a community that you can take part in.
The most sweeping difference is the understanding that you are a whole person, and what goes on in your digestive system affects what goes on in the brain; what goes on in your brain affects what goes on in your heart, and so on. By going system by system, we are able to encompass all of you in this process of detoxifying, nourishing and supporting.
How do you define toxins within Radiant Detox?
A toxin is something that interferes with normal physiology, negatively impacting our bodily function. But not just our physiology. There are toxic thoughts, toxic emotions, and toxic relationships that need to be addressed as well. Toxins are of many different kinds, with totally different qualities, from an infinite number of different sources; just as varied are the complex mechanisms by which they cause irritation and damage.
What are the Seven Systems of the Body?
Radiant Detox looks at the Seven Systems of the body and how best we can support, nourish and cleanse them. They are:
The Digestive System
The Immune System
The Endocrine System
The Respiratory System
The Cardiovascular System
The Nervous System
The Integumentary System (skin, hair, and nails)
What does the Radiant Detox program involve?
The Radiant Detox program addresses the Seven Systems of the body through various approaches, including recipes and meal plans for omnivores and vegans, affirmations, meditations, and many different forms of physical activities from yoga to own-body strength training. We discuss the use of essential oils, and look beyond the body into our living environment, exploring how we can detoxify that as well.
Who is Christine Wokowsky?
Christine Wokowsky is a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, a Certified Nutritionist, and a Certified Gluten Practitioner.

She is an active member with the National Association of Nutritional Professionals. Christine is an indefatigable researcher and curator of scientific studies and information regarding nutrition and whole body healing.
Will I need dietary supplements for this program?
Radiant Detox focuses on whole foods, foods as they are found in nature as being the cornerstone to detoxification. We do teach and explain about different supplements that can be beneficial in supporting the body's metabolic and detoxification pathways. As always, we encourage you to talk to your practitioner concerning supplementation.
I’m a vegan/vegetarian/omnivore. Can I still eat according to the plan?
We have taken both styles of eating into careful consideration and have options for both vegans and omnivores. The recipes can be used interchangeably, providing the best detoxification and nutritional support for both.
