Are you interested in losing weight? Having less body aches and pains? Would you like more energy? Would you like to think and sleep better? Does this sound to good to be true? It isn’t! Detox & Discovery participants experience these benefits during this six week class which includes: a 21 day DETOX and ELIMINATION diet designed by the Institute of Functional Medicine, education on avoiding toxic exposures in our daily lives, and stress reduction.
“With over 30 years in the health care field, this is the most important and pertinent work I have done in my professional career”.
Optimal Health Is The Goal – And There Is So Much We Can Do!
This class provides the needed tools for optimal wellness with impressive results including weight loss, increased energy, improved sleep, decreased anxiety and an overall sense of feeling healthier and lighter.
The Elimination Diet is designed to help discover ‘trigger’ foods that can cause digestive issues, fatigue, mood swings, body aches and pains, skin irritations and many other chronic symptoms of dis-ease. Basically, it is an anti-inflammatory food plan that helps reduce overall body inflammation, repairs intestinal permeability, helps identify food triggers, promotes body awareness of foods, and reduces toxicant burden. It supports the growth of a healthy microbiome and is a gentle and comprehensive food plan. There is no caloric restriction.
We will focus on quality of foods to eat: fats and oils, nuts and seeds, protein, legumes, non-starchy and starchy vegetables while removing common allergen and immune suppressing foods which include corn, dairy, eggs, gluten, sugar, shellfish, soy, beef, pork, processed meat, coffee tea and chocolate.
This plan is foundational in its ability to help people identify adverse food reactions that are commonly overlooked as the cause of chronic health diseases.
Our primary focus will be on important dietary nutrients in the food plan but we will also discuss supplements and products that can support our bodies innate detoxification pathways. We will be discussing product safety and how to identify supplements with the best manufacturing practices.
Please note! The first class and week is centered around getting acquainted with the food plan and identifying your strategies, barriers and desired outcomes. You won’t actually start changing your diet until after the second class.
In addition, during this class series you will:
- LEARN FOUNDATIONAL DETOXIFICATION SKILLS TO USE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!

“Detox and Discovery offered a much greater reward than we anticipated. It’s a life-changer. We have traded chronic ailments like aching joints to mood swings for greater energy and very enjoyable eating.

As I write this I’m healthier and weigh less than I have in 22 years! Detox & Discovery stands out and shines like a 5-Diamond restaurant.” ~ Mark Brady, PhD, social neuroscientist and originator of the Weight, Weight Don’t Weigh Me program

“It is hard to explain how much the discovery and detox benefitted me in such a short time. It was hard to imagine that I would lose weight and stop sneezing and still eat my fill. But it’s easy for me to share my success, by abiding your practical guidance, and my pleasure of the shared group experience. Thank you.” ~Daniel
“Toni Marthaller had put together a blend of well studied information – bringing sensibility and wisdom to the process of making good choices for your health. She guides you in finding the way to use food to bring healing to the gut, with the gentle reminder to take the breaks that give our nervous system time to restore from the stress our lives present, and examining what we use in our environment that can sabotage efforts to be well. Rather than feel deprived as we eliminate toxins and irritants from our diet, we are encouraged to never let ourselves get hungry. I loved that this program of Detoxification focused on building the awareness skills that let each individual discover what works for them. Toni creates a safe place to explore, and helps build the community in the class to also create supportive relationships for change.” ~ Sari
