Learn how healthy detox programs turned around my health!

Geri Richard

Hi!  My name is Geri Richard; let me tell you why I created my healthy detox programs…

I spent the last 15 years of my life researching and reading everything I could get my hands on so that I could try to get a handle on the health conditions that I have developed over the years…

I was very fit and healthy as a child, teenager and even into my 20s.  In my mid 20s I started to gain some weight, which concerned me since I had never had a problem with weight before. As a matter fact my BMI was 19 and I was actually considered to be a bit underweight at 115 pounds (53 kilos) and 5’ 5” (165 cm).

That's when my yo-yo dieting started and continued for almost 20 years.

Unfortunately however, all this losing and regaining weight started to take a toll on my health and I found that I had developed an impressive list of health problems over the years!

Here’s a list of my symptoms…

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • poor concentration
  • poor memory
  • foggy brain
  • trouble finding words
  • hair loss
  • dry brittle nails
  • acid reflux
  • stomach pain (caused by ulcers in my esophagus)
  • nasal congestion
  • bad breath
  • food cravings
  • asthma
  • dry itchy eyes
  • dry skin
  • dry mouth
  • fluid retention
  • belly fat
  • eye floaters
  • insomnia
  • hot flashes
  • irregular periods
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • burning feet
  • back and neck pain
  • muscle aches
  • muscle cramps
  • muscle spasms
  • pain and rib cage
  • slow metabolism
  • fatty liver (elevated liver enzymes)
  • asthma
  • high cholesterol
  • high triglycerides
  • dark circles under eyes
  • Candida
  • night time urination (up to 4 to 5 times a night)
  • tinnitus
  • system-wide inflammation
  • high cortisol levels
  • adrenal fatigue
  • vitamin and mineral deficiencies including iron, iodine, zinc, vitamin D
  • skin tags
  • sinus congestion
  • food intolerances

This is what started me on my path of research into many different health conditions and the healthy detox programs in this website are combination of 15 years of research and much of my own personal trial and error. 

The reason why I created this website was because I was able to manage and even reverse many of the health conditions and symptoms that I suffered from for many years with my healthy Detox Programs and I wanted to share this with others who are in the same boat that I was.

So what are my successes with these healthy Detox Programs? Check it out…

Acid Reflux:

  • By finding out that I had food intolerances to dairy and eggs, I was able to 100% reverse my acid reflux condition which I have suffered from for over 30 years. I had been taking a popular proton pump inhibitor called Losec for over 15 years and once I found out that the food intolerances were causing my condition, I was able to finally get off of this medication. This medication reduces the amount of acid in your stomach by about 95%, however unfortunately since you need stomach acid to digest your food properly, this medication caused many serious symptoms including the vitamin and mineral deficiencies that I suffered from. Once I was able to stop taking this medication I was able to reverse these deficiencies.

Leaky Gut Syndrome:

  • Another very serious health condition that taking the Losec medication triggered was Leaky Gut Syndrome (also called Intestinal Permeability). This resulted in a vicious cycle of many different health conditions and symptoms, including insulin resistance, diabetes, estrogen dominance, fatty liver, fibromyalgia and much more. Following the healthy detox programs that I have created has kept this condition manageable and has allowed me to eliminate many of the symptoms I suffered from.

Type II Diabetes:

  • By following these healthy detox programs I have been able to reverse Type II Diabetes ... my HBA1C test results are now in the nondiabetic range.  

Elevated Liver Enzymes:

  • For many years I had very high liver enzymes indicating a condition called fatty liver. Following this program has enabled me to cut my liver enzymes in half. I am still in the process of reversing my fatty liver condition, but it is getting better all the time.

Fibromyalgia:

  • Over the years I have developed fibromyalgia. I suffered from many different symptoms, but the worst ones were the muscle cramps, muscle spasms, painful rib cage, fluid retention in my face, hands, calves, ankles, and feet, and considerable pain in my neck and back which kept me from getting a good night sleep for many years.  Following my healthy detox programs has eliminated the muscle cramps, muscle spasms, painful rib cage, and has greatly reduced the fluid retention as well as the pain in my neck and back. I am now able to sleep comfortably and deeply, without waking up constantly during the night tossing and turning to try to get comfortable.

Kidney Issues:

  • For many years I had been getting up 4 to 5 times a night to go to the bathroom. (This is a very common symptom for diabetics.)  This has reduced to one or two times a night.  This has helped considerably in being able to get a deep restful sleep.

Asthma:

  • I used to suffer from asthma, but I believe that the asthma had been caused by food intolerances because when I stopped eating the food intolerances and followed my detoxification program the asthma stopped totally and I do not have any problem with asthma at all anymore.

Adrenal Fatigue:

  • I developed many symptoms of adrenal fatigue such as poor memory, mental fogginess, difficulty concentrating, light-headedness, dizziness, and fatigue due to a combination of stress and fluctuating blood sugar levels. When I follow my healthy detox programs all of these symptoms stop and I am much better able to cope with stress.  (These programs go into detail about how high blood sugar levels and insulin resistance triggers adrenal fatigue due to the release of cortisol.)

High triglyceride levels:

  • For many years I had high triglyceride levels which I had not been able to decrease until I started following these healthy detox programs. By following these programs I've been able to cut my triglyceride levels in half.  (High triglyceride levels are caused by diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrates.)

Food cravings:

  • Imbalanced hormone levels, in particular insulin, leptin, cortisol and thyroid hormones would trigger intense food cravings which made it very difficult to follow a healthy eating program. After 48 hours of following my healthy detox program these food cravings would totally stop and I would easily be able to continue following the detox program.

Insomnia and Interrupted Sleep:

  • Because of the fibromyalgia there were many nights when I had a lot of trouble sleeping, both falling asleep and waking up many times during the night. I now find that I have only the rare episode of insomnia and I sleep much more deeply during the night and rarely wake up. Previously, I also found it difficult to sleep more than six hours a night because the pain in my back would make sleeping so uncomfortable I would just get up. Now I find that I'm able to sleep on average 7 to 8 hours a night and sometimes even up to 9 or 10 hours, which for me was unheard of!

Peripheral Neuropathy & Burning Feet:

  • For many years I've also suffered from a considerable amount of fluid retention in my face, hands, calves, ankles and feet, which I have been able to greatly reduce. I have also suffered from peripheral neuropathy which causes a very uncomfortable burning sensation in my feet. This pain is there night and day and is unrelenting.  I have resisted using drugs and medication (pain killers) for this condition and have done an amazing amount of research to find natural methods of reducing the pain. I think there may be a correlation between the fluid retention in my legs and ankles and feet and the peripheral neuropathy because I often find that if I use compression stockings in the evenings, the pain lessens. But the best result that I have found is that when I followed my detox program the burning sensation in my feet decreases substantially (as does the fluid retention) and usually I am pain free for most of the day and I only have minor burning sensations in my feet for short periods of time, mainly in the evening.   

Out of all my successes so far, eliminating the constant pain of Fibromyalgia and Peripheral Neuropathy are the ones I am most happy about!

In this website I have created two different detoxification programs that focus on the main health conditions that I have suffered from and have been able to overcome using detoxification: 

  1. Fibromyalgia Detox Program
  2. Fatty Liver Detox Program
