What some people are saying about the classes.
Nina: This detox program is soooo worth doing! My 17yr old daughter and I are on day 15 of the program. We were initially going to do just 7 days but we are both feeling so fantastic we're just going to carry on... Apart from feeling lighter and losing weight, we've got loads more energy, sleeping more deeply and for me best of all is the amazing alert clarity I wake up with each day. No more foggy-headedness or blah feeling. I can honestly say this is a life-changing course. Thank you Michelle! For the wise way you've developed this program and your kind encouragement always.
Angelique: I lost 3kg's in 7 days! My energy levels feel amazing. My skin is glowing!
Matthew: Michelle phew lady you're on fire! Your passion is contagious. I left the class feeling so inspired. Thank you for inspiring me to take my health to a whole new level.
Bevan: I lost 10kg's. Ive come down to a size 32 again. I never once felt hungry. I have so much energy now. My bloating, constipation & recurring bladder infections are all healed. Thank you so much for really changing my life.
I've been doing regular detoxes as part of my lifestyle for more than 10 years now & I have to tell you...
And then because you are making amazing juices you jam pack your body with vitamins and minerals taking in more fruit and vegetables than you can eat in a day.
