For the last two years, I have had the honor of collaborating with my friend and the acupuncturist badass Serra Chase, founder of Brooklyn Acupuncture Project (BAP). On a biannual basis, we collaborate to offer Spring and Fall seasonal, 3-week, whole-food cleanses. Bringing together an intimate group of people, we support them through our respective expertise to take a brief departure from the kinds of foods that may be sidelining their health goals, triggering symptoms and their cravings. And the results are amazing!
Participants have reduced their cravings for sugar, curbed their emotional eating, lost 10 pounds, improved their digestion, suppressed their dependence on coffee, lifted their mood and brain fog, and saw reductions in anxiety. Participants from each cleanse cycle also repeatedly note how much our support and guidance has changed the way they approach their diet and ultimately how they nourish themselves.
We will be kick-starting a new cleanse for the fall on Sunday, September 27th with an exciting new offering. This season, those of you who may want to dive in without a long commitment can now choose between a 1-week / 7-day cleanse or a 3-week / 21-day cleanse. Each comes with:
- group and private support,
- a comprehensive guide with recipes,
- a private nutrition consult, and acupuncture treatment(s).
The 3-week cleanse participants also benefit from a massage and admission to the knife skills and meal planning workshop Sunday, September 20 at BAP.
Check-out the descriptions for each cleanse below. I hope to see you rocking your way to a healthier and more energetic fall!
1-WEEK / 7-DAY INTENSIVE CLEANSE:
The structure of this 7-day cleanse invites a brief departure from the kinds of foods that may be sidelining your health goals and triggering symptoms and cravings. One-week can be all that you have time or the attention span for, which is important to recognize. It can also be the first step in a life-changing shift in your diet.
In 7-days, you can lift the brain fog of the summer and set yourself up for a healthier winter. You can shift your relationship to sugar and caffeine. And, as one participant described, you can also push the restart button on your energy and sleep patterns, “I woke up feeling much better! Not tired, even when I did not get a full night's sleep. I also did not feel stiff in the AM and had lots of energy all day.”
The 7-day cleanse package overlaps with the first week of the 21-day cleanse. You will join the group of cleansers and benefit from their questions, encouragement and Sarah and Nancy’s guidance throughout the week. The cleanse is strategically designed to be streamlined for a busy New Yorker, and it offers you a very clear and simple diet through the process of eliminating the major allergens, inflammatory foods and chemicals in your diet. These include sugar, dairy, wheat/gluten, soy, caffeine, nicotine, peanuts, eggs, and all processed foods.
The 1-week cleanse package includes:
- An abbreviated cleanse guide with recipes;
- 1 acupuncture treatment by any BAP practitioner;
- 1 private, 30-minute nutrition phone consult;
- 1 cleanse kick-off group call on 9/26;
- 1 check-in group call on ;
- 24/7 group support and encouragement on a private Facebook page;
- Option to continue with the 3-week cleanse for the difference in cost.

3-WEEK / 21-DAY COMPREHENSIVE CLEANSE:
The BAP Fall Cleanse is a three-week commitment to a comprehensive detox plan that involves roughly 10 days of “eating down” to one-day of eating very minimally, followed by a slow re-integration into healthy and well-balanced foods. This is an excellent opportunity to go much deeper in your pursuit of your health goals.
Perhaps you are seeking an ideal diet that will support easeful digestion? Do you need to push the restart button and get a boost in energy? Do you want to begin the process of loosing weight? Could it be time to really nail down if you are allergic or sensitive to specific foods? Are you determined not to get sick again this winter?
Over the course of 3-weeks, you will receive one-on-one nutritional and logistical guidance, the bodywork to propel the detox deeper, and the support to address moving forward once the 21-days are over. This process is easeful, coordinated, and offers, in advance, a meal planning and culinary support workshop to get you prepped and ready to go. A recent participant described her experience as, “Before the cleanse I was in a rut. Eating whatever was available quickly to fill the void for calories. After the cleanse, I have a lot more awareness of what I am eating and when. VERY LITTLE snacking which is probably the biggest win.”
Included in the 3-week cleanse package is:
- A day-to-day cleanse guide with recipes and tips;
- 4 acupuncture treatments by any BAP practitioner;
- 1 massage by a BAP practitioner;
- Admission to Knife Skills & Meal Planning 101, taught by Nancy Campbell on Sept. 20, 5:30-7:30 pm at BAP;
- 1 private, 50-minute nutrition consult in person or over the phone;
- 24/7 group support and encouragement through a private Facebook page;
- One-on-one support through a kick-off call and 4 group calls, including an allergen testing “how-to” call.
