MODULE 2: DETOX

Feel better by losing toxicity. We need to get waste out of our bodies that comes from the foods we eat and environmental toxins that are prevalent in today’s world. If we don’t out toxins, then we accumulate and store them, and over time this leads to inflammation-the mother of all diseases. Detoxing is easy and simple.

By following this pillar you will have vibrant looking skin, hair and nails, increased energy, and a sense of well being, and recipes like cleansing soups, shakes and smoothies. It’s also anti-aging!

MODULE 3: VIP DAY

Get ready to set your kitchen up for success! Together we clean out your pantry and refrigerator and replacing it with healthy foods. We replace refined and degraded food items with nutritional, delicious, easy foods for snacking and cooking.  You will have once a week shopping lists for the season, eating out tips, pantry lists, kitchen appliance and tool essentials, and travel eating tips to keep us trim and energetic. You’ll also receive a seasonal grocery food lists, and recipes each week for three months so you don’t have to think, you only have to do!

By following this pillar you are able to be organized, efficient, and inspired. It is the key for eating right.

 
MODULE 4: SUPPLEMENTATION

We are what we eat, and eating optimally nutritious foods is essential, but we need more because of our soils being deficient of vitamins and minerals. We also need to work a little harder on problem areas, for example taking 2-3 bowel movements a day is possible by taking a fiber supplement. It’s different for everyone, and based on your commitment. It’s also simple and cost effective because it reduces sickness and the need to go to the doctor.

By following this pillar you will start to see minor chronic aches and pains diminish and eventually go away. You will also start to get to the root cause of problems unlike many pharmaceuticals which addresses symptoms only. Always check with your health care physician prior to any supplement program.

Included is a one hour free session with part of the KNK team! A kinesiologist will get you exactly what you need. There is no guessing or wasting money on supplements. It’s customized for you.

MODULE 5: MANAGING STRESS, CRAVINGS, THOUGHTS, AND EMOTIONS

No one wants to be around “grumpy pants”. Learn techniques to deal with what life throws at us. It’s easier than you think and I will be with you all the way! When we set our minds to something we can achieve anything! It’s vital to break bad habits and create new ones that are good for us.

By following this pillar you learn to control your eating habits, maintain calmness in all situations, make better choices, and set an example for your kids, significant others, friends and co-workers. Best of all you’ll start to look amazing because stress takes its toll on our health and looks.

MODULE 6: EXERCISE

I will set you up with a program and we will see the tested results via the body scale scan once a week. We set practical goals that are always achieved due to its practicality and simplicity.
