Next Challenge October/November, 2016
“Sugar was once called a ‘white death’…It is estimated that an average western person consumes about 160 – 200IB. of this highly processed substance per year. Sugar is everywhere and it’s hard to find any processed food without it. Apart from causing the blood glucose roller coaster and having a detrimental effect on the gut flora, it has been shown to have a direct damaging effect on the immune system. On top of that, to deal with the sugar onslaught, the body has to use available minerals, vitamins and enzymes at an alarming rate, finishing up being depleted by these vital substance.” Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
At Intrinsi we’re proud to offer you a 21 day sugar detox – a respite from foods that cause inflammation and illness so that you can heal your gut, mend the roller coaster of your energy up’s and downs and re-wire your taste buds so that your ‘sweet tooth’ is tamed.
This challenge includes a step by step whole foods meal plan for 21 days and probiotics that will help heal your gut and support the organs that assist in detoxifying your body.
“The digestion challenge at Intrinsi has completely changed my life. Here’s the facts: my husband John and I are 58 yrs old and 70 yrs old, since the last Intrinsi digestion challenge we are healthier, we have completely changed the foods we eat, we have more energy, food is more delicious, we run, walk and weight train almost every day. Feeling healthier and fitter is simply amazing and the big bonus is the 14 plus centimetres we both lost around our waist lines. Too good to miss – just do this! We are so thankful to both Ed and Lucy, and Intrinsi for this new understanding about food and nourishing our bodies.” Dr. Debra Ford Msc.D

Probiotics – why they are part of the 21 day digestion challenge?
Probiotics boost your immune system, prevent eczema and allergies, resolve antibiotic related gut problems AND can help resolve your digestive issues.
There are billions of bacteria living in the intestinal tract often referred to as ”microflora”. Probiotics are live ”friendly” bacteria found in the microflora working to keep a healthy intestinal balance, reducing the amount of harmful bacteria while replenishing and maintaining beneficial strains. Maintaining this balance is critical for overall good health.
Here’s what people have to say about the digestion challenge:
“I am so glad Intrinsi hosted this, and that I participated. I have better energy, no digestive pain, and zero sugar cravings. This is huge for me!” Peggi Mcdougall, Calgary AB
“I sleep so much better and have no pain which is a big plus. Thank you for being there for me.” Diane Pronovost, Calgary AB
“I’ve been hypoglycaemic all my adult life (annoying endless snack preparations & stress of blood sugar crashes). 1 week into this detox & my blood sugar is SO much more even. I feel satiated – no carbs/sugar cravings at all (aside from missing berries). Sleep is better. It is so freeing and calming to not have to deal worry about blood sugar fluctuations! I’m telling all my friends about this program!” Lisa Murray, Calgary AB
“I have really enjoyed this “challenge”. It really helped that there was a virtual group to do it with and that you kept up with facts and reminders. I think it made it easier to complete and it made the 3 weeks go by faster. I will do it again next time you run it.” Tiffanie Billey, Calgary AB
