Raw Cleansing – An Introduction

I got into cleansing a few years ago and initially my goal was to lose weight.  Over time I have experimented and found the benefits far exceed just losing weight.

I will be posting what I have learned about cleansing and how you can do your own cleanse when you are ready. 

A little bit about me


I live in Portland, Oregon, the vegan mecca for all things green.   I have been exploring the question “What is health and how do I get more?” my whole life.  In 2012 I made the decision to retire at age 55 from a busy successful career as an RN and Manager for a large health care company. I love photography and I am thrilled to be a new grandma.  I just got back from a trip of a lifetime in which I walked 550 miles through France and Spain on the Camino de Santiago.

What I will be sharing:

  • What is a raw cleanse?
  • How long should I do my cleanse?
  • How do I prepare for a raw cleanse?
  • Getting started, those first few days.
  • Recipes for juices, smoothies, raw salads, soups and more
  • Staying motivated
  • Tips for success with cleansing

I’m looking forward to a fun month and I actually will be on my own raw cleanse while writing this.  So it will be a live, in the streets kind of view.  Hope you enjoy all the neat stuff I have to share!
