What turned the tables for me was my free Is Juicing for Me discussion on the benefits of daily juicing, which I hold monthly at local venues like New Frontiers - San Luis Obispo, New Frontiers - Solvang, The Wellness Kitchen - Templeton, and online via teleseminar. Inspiring others to do a cleanse or add daily juice to their lifestyle really motivates me to continue on.
I just coached a group of 11 people on my 10-day Juice Cleanse program online and they all had amazing results. Some of their program testimonials include:

"So Ii just wanted to share my experience of my juice cleanse journey. I have done a cleanse in the past through Stephanie, I had such great results from it and gained so much knowledge about what my body needs and the benefits of cleansing, that I had no hesitation to try another one. This one was different, it was also a fast so it was a bit more challenging for me in the beginning. I have 4 kids, so preparing their food in the beginning was hard. But during those first few days what kept me going and motivated was reading others' blogs about their own journey's and the feedback from others and Stephanie's words of motivation and knowledge. Just knowing that she is doing this much longer than we did is motivation enough! After day 3 the lightness and energy I had was great. It's
still there. I went just a couple days longer and now I am on to eating raw. I still know i have done something great for my body. Without Stephanie's help I wouldn't know where to begin and i would be on a very dangerous path to declining health. I plan on making this a lifetime change of incorporating more raw into my diet and also my family's. Just in my small town my husband and I have met so many other's who are in need of a life change in food. We have referred them to Stephanie and we are hoping and praying they will make the commitment to change their lives. It's amazing that the food you intake can be such a crucial thing. I had no idea a few years ago. So thank you to Stephanie for caring about teaching other's about the amazing health benefits through the right foods. I had such a great result from this and can't wait to get on board for another one!"

"I have tried doing juice cleanses many times on my own and the only times I have been successful are the two times I've done the coaching program with Stephanie. Having her and the whole group of juicers holding me accountable help get me through it. Every time I've been close to caving, I would think of Stephanie and power on. When I really
struggled, Stephanie was there to keep me going. I love the results and feeling I get from the juice cleanse and highly recommend doing one to anyone. And to anyone doing a juice cleanse, get Stephanie Austin as your coach. Not only is Stephanie very knowledgeable, which she shares each day of the program, but she's very supportive and lays it out in a way that is easy to follow and understand."
The biggest reason I've doing such a lengthy cleanse this time around is due to a flare-up of Dermatomyositis. I have had one other flare-up in all of the years I've had this disease. Glad they are so few and far between because they are NO FUN.
The good news about the experience is I've fallen in love with acupuncture. In only one treatment, my severe skin symptoms were calmed, my face less red and my body relaxed. The tea concoction the practitioner provided is much less desirable though. I am one who will eat anything or do anything in the name of health. I can handle teas that other people think taste awful and I can do procedures like coffee enemas and colonics because of their benefits. This tea; however, is quite a challenge!
I'll be taking a 3 to 5-day retreat in February where I will stop juicing fresh veggies and fruits and consume water only. I will also go on a technology and speaking hiatus to go deep into meditation and healing. I'm excited and nervous.
Water fasting activates the inner healer like nothing else can. It enables cellular differentiation and assists people with autoimmune disease and even cancer by helping the body tell friend from foe. Juice cleanses do not enable the same differentiation, so I will sandwich a little water fast in between the beginning and end of my juice cleanse.
Upward and onward. Cheers!
