Over the last 25 years, I‘ve taken care of patients who suffered from harmful effects of the wrong food’s industrial, factory made science projects, boatloads of sugar & flour – 152 lbs of sugar and 146 lbs of flour per person per year, to be exact. It’s done more than make then struggle with weight and yoyo diets.

It is completely derailed their health. Worse, they blame themselves for not being able to succeed at controlling their eating habits or cravings.  Millions of us, over half the population, suffer from FLC SYNDROME. That’s when you feel Like Crap. Sometimes annoying little symptoms such as achy joints or muscles or brain fog, fatigue, headaches, allergies or gas or more serious problems such as Autoimmune disease such as Migraines, Asthma, Acne, Irritable Bowel, Reflux, Arthritis or worse. When I use the word “DETOX” I mean a scientifically designed medical detox from sugar and all things than turn to sugar.

The Fun Part is that it’s done simply by taking out the Bad Stuff and putting in the Good Stuff….lots of Good Stuff.

Maybe I should call it the Feel Good with Good Stuff Plan!!!!



When you wake up feeling LESS than Vital, Vibrant, Alive, Joyful and Full Energy, even if you are thin but have symptoms of being TOXIC like fatigue, brain fog, achiness, digestive issues, allergies, headaches ——really any symptoms all.

The DETOX can help you quickly. Most of us don’t connect what we are eating to how we feel.


The Scientific Establishment has convinced as that weight is just a matter of calories in/calories out, that it’s about energy balance, about eating less and exercising more.

How’s that working out for you?  Probably Not So Well!!!!

Problem is, the Scientific Establishment is different from the established Science.  The Science says Sugar & Flour Calories are way different.

First, they trigger addiction and overeating.

Second, they spike insulin and inflammation, which make you store BELLY FAT and blocks your ability to feel full. The Verdict is in Sugar Calories that are worse than whole food calories.  Sugar spike insulin and triggers inflammation, a double whammy guaranteed to mess up any attempt at long term weight loss.

3) YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR SUGAR AND CARBS CRAVINGS (you may be suffering from addictions)

The fact is that sugar and flour are biologically addictive.  The science behind, it is clear and conclusive. Yet we blame the FAT PERSON for being lazy glutton which leads to shame and guilt.

I am here to tell you it’s not your FAULT.  Your Biology has been hijacked by the food industry.  They have done a hostile takeover of your taste buds, brain chemistry, hormones and metabolism.  More than 300 Food Industry insiders spilled the beans to Micheal Moss in his book, SALT, SUGAR & FAT, explaining they hire “Craving Experts” to create the “Bass Point” of junk food to create “Heavy Users” and increase their “Stomach Share”.  Sugar is the new Nicotine.  In fact, Sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine.  If you are trying to use will power to Lose Weight you will fail.  You have to use science to unhook yourself from substances (or NON FOOD JUNK).


Most of us have never in our life taken 5 or 10 days Detox or put nothing in our body but delicious, whole clean food.  Just 5 Days, even you think you are healthy and feel good, you may not realize that you normal state is not your Optimal State. Think of it as a tune up, a super quick, super easy way to supercharge your health.


All of us stray from living in a way that supports our health either too little sleep, too little exercise , too much bad food, too much stress, not enough time for ourselves. The Best way to reset your Age is a 5 Days Detox, Simple, delicious food, No toxin or drugs, by which I mean sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine, or alcohol.  Self-Nurturing practises, deep breathing, sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night, a little exercise , Self love.  All this works to get your Body and Mind back to their original factory setting- and quickly!

So now that you know why you need A DETOX, how do you do it without pain and suffering? How do you take a shortcut to feeling, great?

Here’s the little secret that the diet and food industry, the medical establishment and Big Pharma don’t want you to know.  Most of us are only a few day away from Health and Happiness.  Even if you have already a bad case of FLC SYNDROME or even chronic disease. Food is the most powerful medicine on the planet to fix it.

Q: How you can educate yourself and remove toxins in the body?
A: When people try to guess my age, they tend to think I am 15 years younger than my chorological age because I look young and fit in the Body, Mind and Spirit. Some people blame it on my Asian Heritage, “NO” The Secret is DETOX & LIVE.

Most people are on diet loaded with Sugar, rely on Packaged Processed Food, Dairy products, Wheat, Yeast, Alcohol, Caffeine, Nicotine, & Chemicals. People carry within their bodies a modern day chemical cocktail derived from industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, heavy metals, anaesthetics & residue of pharmaceutical legal & illegal drugs.  In addition, many people are suffering from HURRY SYNDROME, No time to Eat, Rest, Meditate, Love, be Loved, Recollect and Reflect, only time to Hurry and eventually get sick. If you belong to this category, you definitely need to educate yourself in my DETOX & LIVE Book which is available now at http://www.michelleherbstherapy.com with detailed information to help you understand why EVERYONE needs a DETOX?

What is Detox?

Eliminating wastes and poisons via the lymphatic, digestive and urinary systems. Secondary routes of elimination are via the SKIN and LUNGS. Bad breath or recurrent skin eruptions may be evidence of the lung’s and skin’s attempt to assist overworked of weakened primary organs of elimination.

All the DIGESTIVE ORGANS play a crucial role in detoxification. The LIVER, in particular, is responsible for oxidising, breaking down or otherwise processing toxins. It filters a litre of blood per minute, straining out ENDOTOXINS, BACTERIA and POISONS.

Some of these toxins are deposited into bile, which is squirted into the INTESTINES by the gallbladder and moved out of the body. Prescription drugs, birth control pills and other hormonal medications, high fat diets, gallbladder diseases and variety of other factors can reduce the quantity and the quality of bile produced. Hepatitis, cirrhosis, biliary disease and nutrient deficiencies can all hamper the liver’s ability to effectively purify blood.

The KIDNEYS receive toxins, and the glomeruli, a specialised apparatus within the kidneys, filters the blood and metabolises water, electrolytes and nitrogen based waste. Heavy metals, long term aspirin consumption and numerous pharmaceutical medications can damage the kidneys and hamper their ability to detoxify these substances possibly leading to cancers. Toxemia is the precursor to AGING, loss of tone and function and permanent degeneration.

In FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE, the bowels are considered the soil of the body, Nutrient absorption, metabolism, and synthesis of many hormones and enzymes, as well as processing and elimination of waste products and toxins, all occur in the BOWELS. The enzymes, proteins, fats and hormones found in every cell of the body are largely the result of what the digestive organs absorb, metabolise, secrete and excrete. Like a chain reaction, intestinal constipation will lead to cellular inflammation.

No discussion of detoxification would be completed without mentioning the organs of elimination. Detoxification programs target organs whose role is to cleanse and protect your body from toxic substances.

Primarily, the liver, kidneys, colon, lymphatic and blood system.  Detoxification can target each of these organs individually or all of them together.

What is the difference with other DETOX & INTERGRATED DETOX?

HEALING CRISIS: The most common occurrences during a detoxification programme especially one that focus primary on treating the LIVER without first correcting the environment and the gut is sometimes violent reaction known euphemistical as Healing Crisis. Patients may feel nausea, pain, headache, aggravations of inflammatory symptoms or increased sensitivity to dietary and environmental chemicals. This is caused by stimulation of the Liver detoxification without the correct supplements to support the entire process. This leads to an increase in the production of reactive intermediate harmful substances that causes damage to cells and tissues and increase the production of inflammatory medication.
