Do you feel caught
in a cycle of stress,
unsure how to get out?
The tentacles of stress
are deeper and stronger
than many realize.
But so are you.
The Cortisol Cleanse
moon cycles of medicine* and magic* for your nervous system
* medicine refers to nourishment and practices that are healing to the body, mind and spirit.
* magic refers to anything that brings us into connection with the unseen.
Enter a recurring 30-day voyage of deep nervous system healing: herbal practices, ancient wisdom, meditations and straight up magical goodness and love for your ragged nerves!
In time with the waning and waxing energies of the Moon, we'll address internal and external causes of stress through the lens of traditional medicine: Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Western Herbalism and other indigenous sciences from around the world.
Learn how your stress is trying to communicate
•circulation and the heart
Nurture a more mutually-supportive connection to your body and the world it lives in.
What you learn in the course will support you for the rest of your life!
Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by our adrenal glands. Like every other element or action of our bodies, it is a necessary part of a complexly beautiful system.
In excess, though, cortisol is linked to many health issues, including:
• mood swings and depression
• weight gain
• irregular or ceased periods (amenorrhea)
• excess heat/inflammation in the face and body
• heart pounding even at rest
• unusually strong thirst
• headaches or migraines
• depressed immune system and metabolism
• reduced cognitive function
• premature signs of aging
If you experience three or more of these symptoms, then the Cortisol Cleanse will help.
Our cortisol levels are a reflection of the times we live in and the lives we lead. It isn't something we can just eliminate from our systems (nor would we want to), but we can foster habits that reduce our bodies' need for it.
With the Cortisol Cleanse, we will foster those habits one day at a time, in easy chunks of information.
At the end of 30 days, you'll have gained a new approach to stress and tools that will last a lifetime.
BUT~ since decades of damage can't be undone in one month, you'll be able to revisit the course over and over to support the new habits you're establishing.
you will get the most out of this course if you...
are struggling to get a handle on your stress, even after trying 'everything'
are ready to go deep and do the work to create the shifts that only you can
suspect that the roots of your stress are much deeper than you’ve been told
are excited to explore solutions outside the lines of mainstream medicine
this may not be your best option if you....
are resistant to new (ancient) approaches to wellness
are uncomfortable with words like ‘reverence’ and ‘sacred’ in wellness topics
are waiting for someone else to heal you or do the work for you
aren't willing to commit to yourself
expect overnight results
what to expect
Keep an eye out for the email with secret link- if you're not already on the Daughter of Daughters mailing list, sign up below. If you are on my mailing list, but don't see the email, you can reach out to
Starting Sunday, 02.28 there will be a new post at that link containing a practice, meditation or other information designed to facilitate self-healing for your nervous system.
You’ll receive email updates once or twice a week and Instagram reminders in between (@daughters_of_daughters_), but with or without reminders, there will be a new post here each day.
I’m aiming to keep each daily post at only about 5 minutes long so they don’t take much time out of your day. If there are meditations or other practices they’ll require a bit more time, but I will still aim to keep everything as trim as I can!
Yes, you can start late and it's totally fine to fall behind! Each day of the program will stay up for a little over a week, so you’ll have some wiggle room.
That said you will get out of this what you put in. Someone said, ‘knowing what you need and not doing it is the same as not knowing’. Wellness is finding the balance between giving yourself what you need and being too rigid and hard on yourself.
We will be tending and loving up the nervous system from so many angles that you will be sure to see results even if you don’t do every single practice. If you drink your herbs and get movement and sunshine, you may feel a difference within a week, depending on where you were when you started.
If you're on Instagram, share your experience there and tag @daughters_of_daughters_ so we can follow along with each other!
what you'll need
Herbs! We'll be drinking delicious plant infusions every day, so pick an herb or two from each of the two categories below and stock up. About 30 tablespoons total (all combined) will be enough for a daily quart.
Time and space to dedicate to yourself every day. It's okay if you miss or fall behind, but your results are really dependent on your commitment. I will be keeping the daily practices short so you can create the intention to make self-nurturing a part of your daily routine.
To release expectations and judgment. What we're embarking on may be completely new for yourself or others. Be gentle.
