Are you tired all the time but feel way too young to feel so exhausted? Have you struggled with getting to your ideal weight but no ‘fad’ diets ever seem to work? Do you feel anxious or overwhelmed by everyday problems? Robyn Openshaw explains today how many of these issues are caused by hormone imbalance, and food can be one of the biggest culprits.

Robyn is the author of 15 books, the founder of Green Smoothie Girl, and a single mom to 4 beautiful children. She has brought knowledge about effective detoxing to tens of thousands of people and works every day to help support familial health around the world.

Unless you eat 100% organic plant-based, live in a rural area, grow your own food, and never drink alcohol, chances are your body needs a detox.

“Your body, as a whole, deals with a constant wave of harmful toxins and yet it still keeps on moving along. The body is not entirely invincible however, it deserves some assistance in maintaining homeostasis and cellular vitality.” (3:28)

“When you eat unclean things can get pretty messy pretty fast.” (13:44)

“In this toxic age when there is so many preservatives and herbicides and pesticides and all kinds of heavy metals and different chemicals in our food that our body was not meant to assimilate or eliminate or metabolise, those chemicals need to go somewhere, and we don’t want them to go to our critical organs.” (22:30)

“This isn’t a diet, we are focusing on your health and focusing on detoxifying, weight loss is just a nice side benefit.” (25:40)
