21-Day Detox returns to Guam

by Michele Catahay

If you're looking for a safe and guided detoxification program designed to cleanse and rejuvenate your body, you should try the 21-Day Detox.  It could end up being a life changing, and healthy experience. 

The 21-Day Detox teaches people the basic fundamentals for prevention and self-healing through nutrition and restful cleanse. Naturopath John Wood has been conducting workshops since 2001 in California and is conducting sessions right here on Guam. The three-week program is separated into three phases.

For the first week, one can eat plant based foods. For the second week, individuals should eat uncooked foods and two blended meals. The last phase is the liquid part of the program where the digestive organs are said to get rest and the healing begins. Wood says it makes for a good cleanse.

He told KUAM News, "We take people that normally aren't into cleansing and fasting and things like that. We try to take them from where they're at to get them doing a really effective cleanse but without a lot of the cleansing reactions."

The detox plan is said to help prevent disease and could reverse some symptoms of disease.  Wood says the program also includes the intake of the nutritional supplement Dr. Greens, which contains healthy vitamins and minerals.  "A lot of people are having problems and take aspirin and stuff like that," said Wood.  "What we try to do is take out all the things that may be causing problems in their diet and let their body have some time to heal."

In the meantime, if you're looking for a place where you could find such foods that'll help with the detox plan, you could visit the Café Dharma at the Synergy Studios in Maite. Café owner Mark Gutierrez says the foods they serve are for everyone and most importantly, good for you.

"It's very detox-friendly. You spoke to john about the detox and there are different levels. They've got the cooked and so on. At every stage of the detox program, we will be providing everything from the blended, to the salads, to the cooked," he explained.

Almost all their foods are made raw. They prepare raw tacos, a mushroomwich, strawberry cheesecake and even buko crackers with a trio dip. Gutierrez says they're not only good for you, but they taste good, too.  "The flavor profiles are a lot different. We don't really cook stuff out. Because it's raw, you'll find that the flavor is much more pungent, they punch," Gutierrez said.

If you're interested in taking part in the detox workshops, contact Clare Calvo at Synergy Studios in Maite at 472-9642. You could also check out the Café Dharma from 11am to 2pm.
