An introduction to the basics of ancient, intuitive healing and plant medicine
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, 10-minute chunks (more or less) of information and action.
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.
This course is perfect for you if...
you've 'tried everything' and are still struggling.
you're eager to go deep to unwind and rewrite stress patterns.
finding solutions outside of mainstream medicine excites you.
you want to give your body the time it needs.
This isn't the course for you if....
you're resistant to ancient approaches to wellness
approaching physical/ mental/ spiritual/ emotional health together creates discomfort
are waiting to be healed by someone else.

How it Works
Register at the link provided~ orientation will be opened on Friday, May 21st
Order a supply of herbs (details below) to carry you through the month. Directions for working with them will be in the orientation. Feel free to get a head start!
The first 7-day phase of the course will go live on May 25th, just ahead of the full moon on the 26th. Each subsequent phase will go live timed with the half moons and new moon and full of practices that work with the lunar energies of each phase.
Commit to yourself to check in daily and do the journaling, meditation, breathing practice or activity assigned. And then forgive yourself if you miss a day~ you can always come back to it on the next moon cycle.
Rinse and repeat!
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. Your results will be a reflection of your commitment. The daily practices will be short to support you in making self-nurturing a part of your daily routine.
But at the same time.... release expectations and judgment! Expectations and judgment are ripe soil for cortisol. Choose patience and gentleness instead.
++ Please note that most of the herbs below are contraindicated during pregnancy. Those that are considered safe are marked. ++
