Hello Gorgeous! Its been  a while since I've updated you all on my Karyn' 4 Week Detox Program : Nature's Healing System and mon petites it's been a world-wind here at LPB! 
I booked two jobs out of the country, had a death in the family and  on top of that had to abruptly leave town for a few days all while in Week 2 of my detox.  The old me would have put an immediate stop to the detox with a million excuses but the new me - the one that puts myself first (Thanks Karyn!) stayed focused and I'm going to blog all about it! 

Feeling energized and accomplished that I completed my first week 100% raw I planned my second week to a fault and then life intervened. First the job in Europe then the job in South America luckily I don't have to travel for a few weeks but prepping for 2 entirely different jobs takes time and energy. As soon as I received my Week 2 protocol and products there's news of a death in the family which meant I had to leave town and attend the services.  If you've been following my LPB Detox Challenge Series you know this isn't just a detox to fit into some jeans by Friday (although that is a bonus!) - this is a time for me to fully invest in myself and I refuse to sell myself short! With the help of Karyn, Jamie and my Detox Alum  my second week (and third...more on that later) was a complete success!

So what kept me on track thus far? Tips from Karyn's Detox Book: Volume I which I want to share with you all. If you're not detoxing and just want to improve your overall lifestyle or just want to stay focus on a goal these tips can be applied and trust success will be on it's way!

  1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of this lifetime.
  2. You enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. You will learn lessons. Each day in this school you have the opportunity to learn them. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
  3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately "works". 
  4. A lesson is repeated until it is learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next one. 
  5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to to be learned. 
  6. "There" is no better then "here". When "there" has become here" you simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here". 
  7. Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself. 
  8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours. 
  9. Your answers lye inside of you. The answers to life's questions lye inside of you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust. 
  10. You will forget all this... over and over again!

 There's more! Karyn knows that with any process - mistakes happen and to guide you to your optimal health and success she shares her tips on what not to do... 


We all make mistakes. Some mistakes are more serious than others. Some mistakes are more obvious than others. We all make little misses in our lives. The following are some of the most common mistakes... 

1. Failure To Set Goals
    This is the first mistake. When you have no specific idea, model, or goal, then you can't achieve it. Failing to set a definite and specific goal is a decision to fail. 

2. Believing That Your Life Is Controlled By Outside Forces
    This force can be astrology, numerology, birth trauma, birth order, or an unhappy childhood. This is a mistake. You are in charge of your life now. It's a mistake to shift responsibility. 

3. Confusing The Trivial With The Tragic 
    It's possible to feel that long hard winters are a tragic event or traffic shouldn't make you wait everyday. Some people get really crazed by late planes, broken buttons, schedule changes. It's a mistake. Tragedy is when you die after leading a wasted life. A child leaving dirty dishes after he said hes does them isn't.

4. Thinking That Things Will Stay The Same
    Everything changes. We all know that when love is in our life we think it ought to stay. When we're down and depressed, we think it's here to stay. I'll never laugh again. It's a mistake to think anything will last. Tom Robbin's novel Still Life With A Woodpecker (Bantam)  is about the question, ''How to make love stay?'' It wont. It goes, it grows, and it flows. Its never the same. Neither are sadness, grief, and depression.

5. Letting The One Bad Thing In Your Life Outweigh The Good 
    ''If only I could lose five pounds, then my life would be okay." You give the five pounds a lot of power. You let it spoil all the good in your life. The five pounds outweighs all the good. It's a mistake.

6. Thinking "Don't Make Mistakes" 
     There's no way a person can live a rich life without taking risks and making mistakes. Being too "security-conscious" is a definite set-up for failure and self-defeat. It's the nature of the human being to make mistakes. Insight and quick recovery is what you want to strive for when a mistake is made. 

7. Other People Are Happy
    This is a very common belief. "Other people can and should be happy because they don't have my problems. I am the only unhappy person on my block, at school and on the job." When we know the problems of others we usually decide to keep our own. 

8. Seeing Everything As "Either/Or"
   Hardly anything in life has just two solutions. We think, "I either keep this job or I starve." "I either stay in this relationship or be unhappy the rest of my life." "I either go to Jamaica or I won't have a vacation." "Either you get this or you're stupid, or, you need to read this again or you have a better idea, or you need to think about it some more... 

9. If You Ignore Or Avoid Problems They'll Go Away
    Will They? Over and over again people find they've got real health problems because they ignored until it's divorce time. A child's sullenness is ignored until the school counselor is calling. A daughter grows up and we ignore the need for sex education. It's a mistake to think problems will go away.

Doesn't Miss Karyn just make it all seem like anything is possible? And being 100% vegan + raw for weeks now I'm a believer too! Take away what resonates to you but know being healthy and true to yourself is possible!
