The Next Session of Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge
Will Take Place February 2 – March 3, 2014

It consists of 3 stages: the Pre-Cleanse, Main Detox and Re-Entry.
During the 15-day Pre-Cleanse, you’ll remove red meat, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, gluten and dairy from your diet in 72-hour stages to re-set your metabolic hormone receptors (for maximum health benefits and weight loss), and prepare your body for a smooth detox with minimal side-effects.
You’ll continue to avoid these six metabolic hormone blockers during the 6-day Main Detox. Then, in the 9-day Re-Entry you’ll reintroduce red meat, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, gluten and dairy in stages to discover which ones cause an autoimmune/allergic reaction – and use this information to help you craft a “maintenance” plan for how you want to eat and supplement beyond the detox.
*My recommended detox supplements, shake powder and fiber blend are all included in Dr. Sara’s Detox Kit, which you can order at a discount when you join my Detox Challenge. Alternatively, you may choose to purchase your preferred brand of detox supplements, shake powder and fiber blend.
**Depending on your preference and weight loss goals.

Here Are Some Results From A Recent Session Of The Detox…
Praise for Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge
This was an amazing experience! I shed pounds without feeling like I was dieting. I created a ritual of carving out time for myself. It was a 21-day investment in myself that I plan to make a quarterly ritual.
– Leslie P.
I never thought I would be able to manage my cravings for sweets, but after Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge I’m not even eager to add sugar back into my diet. I’ve lost 9 lbs. and my blood sugar has rebounded from insulin resistant to a healthy 74. Insulin resistance helps explain why my weight had been in a deadlock, and has been a real wake-up call to improve my overall health.
– Andrea K.
I have struggled with adrenal fatigue and perimenopause with symptoms of low energy, poor sleep, and unexplained “blahs.” I had tried other detoxes, but nothing worked as well as Dr. Sara’s Detox. The guidance, products (I love the chocolate shake!) and the support from Facebook were phenomenal. It’s hard to believe I no longer have cravings for sugar and caffeine! Learning how to test and lower my fasting blood sugar was my biggest “aha!” I went from a fasting blood sugar of 113 to 81 in 14 days. Thank you Dr. Sara!
– Amelia Andaleon
I was feeling like I was living in a cloud: irritable, angry, pudgy . . . Now I feel like the cloud has been lifted. I no longer want to start a fight, I’m more patient with my 7-year-old and the BONUS is that I lost 6 pounds!
– Debra Dennis

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge just for women?
Absolutely not! This detox works equally well for men and women. The only difference for men vs. women is that male participants may find that they need to eat an additional meal or drink an additional shake each day in order to feel satisfied. Dr. Sara will provide information on how to modify the detox for the male participants as needed.
Is this a juice cleanse?
No. This detox focuses on eliminating foods that are toxic to the body and replacing them with hormone-balancing, metabolism-boosting foods. During the 15 day Pre-Cleanse, you will eat 2 healthy meals and drink 1 shake per day. During the 6-day Main Detox, you will eat 1 healthy meal and drink 2 shakes per day. During the 9-day Re-Entry, you will eat 1-2 healthy meals and drink 1-2 shakes per day (depending on your preference and weight loss goals).
For maximum weight loss benefits, we recommend keeping additional snacks to a minimum. However, this detox is NOT about starving yourself! If your energy is low between meals/shakes, then we recommend eating a small snack from your list of approved foods.
Will I have enough energy to go to work?
Definitely! Most people actually find that they sleep better and have MORE energy during this detox.
When you eliminate the main foods that cause autoimmune reactions and hormone imbalance (red meat, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, gluten and dairy) from your diet, your body will process the rest of your food more easily – and convert more of that food into clean, lasting energy. In addition, replacing some meals with shakes means less energy exerted for digestion (which means MORE energy that you can use for whatever you want to do each day!).
Do I need to take any supplements while I’m detoxing?
Yes! At a minimum, you will need to purchase a non-dairy/non-whey protein powder (at least 36 servings’ worth – or more if you’re a man / if you anticipate needing additional shakes) and a water-soluble fiber blend (at least 30 servings’ worth).
For a deeper cleanse, Dr. Sara also recommends taking detox supplements (enough for 30 days).
You may choose to find your own shake powder, fiber and supplements. Or, if you live within the U.S., you can get everything you need by purchasing Dr. Sara’s Deluxe Detox Kit, which includes:
- 2 containers of Dr. Sara’s Hormone Balancing Shake Powder (in chocolate or vanilla)
- 1 container of Dr. Sara’s Fiber Blend
- 1 container of Dr. Sara’s Detox Packets
That’s enough of everything to get you through the 30-day cleanse. You will be given the option to add the Detox Kit to your order – for over 12% OFF the price of the individual products – when you purchase Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge.
What if I can’t stick to the eating plan 100%?
In order to see the maximum hormone balance and weight loss results, we highly recommend sticking to the food plan and detox schedule. The best way to do this is to PLAN AHEAD and keep plenty of healthy foods and snacks on hand for “emergencies.”
That being said, just do the best you can. If you get off-track, you can always jump right back on again! There’s no such thing as “failing” the detox – and most participants are pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to stick with the plan once you get started.
I’m pregnant/breastfeeding/trying to get pregnant. Is it still safe for me to participate?
Generally Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge is safe for everyone. However, Dr. Sara cannot give you medical advice outside of a doctor-patient relationship. For both pregnant and lactating women, your best option is to discuss with your clinician and to avoid the supplements unless approved him or her. Most supplements do not have proven safety in pregnancy and lactation. The exceptions are magnesium and some of the B vitamins, but it’s better to err of the side of caution and make the decision about supplements with your clinician.
I want to do this, but I have a big trip/event during the detox dates! Should I just wait for the next detox to join?
Most people find that they can stick with the detox, even during big trips or events. The main thing you’ll need is access to a blender and healthy foods (from your approved foods list). As long as you have that, you can do Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge pretty much anywhere, anytime!
If you worry that your event/trip will interfere with your detox, you can also choose to go ahead and sign up anyway, and then complete the detox on your own time. In other words, you’ll get the emails, webinars, and Q&A call recordings sent to you at the same time as everyone else, and then you can choose to complete the detox whenever you’re ready to commit to it fully – since you now have everything you need to do it!
Will there be another detox offered later?
Yes! Dr. Sara’s Detox Challenge typically runs twice per year. The next session dates will be announced in early 2014 (est. summer or fall 2014).
If you want to detox sooner than that, but have a conflict with the current session dates, you can also choose to go ahead and sign up anyway, and then complete the detox on your own time. In other words, you’ll get the emails, webinars, and Q&A call recordings sent to you at the same time as everyone else, and then you can choose to complete the detox whenever you’re ready to commit to it fully – since you now have everything you need to do it!

I’m in love. Yes, it’s true. . . I’m in love with the work of Dr. Sara Gottfried. Last year I met Dr. Sara, who’s a Harvard trained gynecologist and yoga teacher (great combo)—and her work has been life-changing for me. She showed me how to help my hormones the natural way, and this has been the biggest happiness booster for me in a long time. You don’t have to settle for being stressed out, binging on sugar and chocolate, and aging prematurely. Stop blaming yourself and step into sacred action. It’s your birthright. You can have the joyous, mission-driven life you want, and Dr. Sara is here to show us how.

Dr. Sara is bridging the chasm between the woman who wants to take action to feel better, and the encapsulated medical body of knowledge. She is educating us on how to take care of ourselves, giving us information and putting it in a language that makes sense for anyone who is intelligent enough to think, but doesn’t have a medical background. This is really rare. Dr Sara hunts the core issues women are wrestling with & answers the essential question: ‘What the hell is wrong with me & what can I do about it?’ I am making this book required reading in my Forrest Yoga Foundation Teacher Training.

I am so happy to know Dr. Sara and to discover The Hormone Cure. I wish I had read this book in my twenties when I suffered a week of PMS every month. Now, I’m turning 50, still cycling, and I’m so relieved to have the answers I need to navigate the murky waters of my changing body and perimenopause. I can’t wait to share this book with every woman I know including my two daughters! Thank you, Dr. Sara!

If I could consult with only one person in the field of women’s health, unequivocally, I would choose Dr. Sara Gottfried. She blends together the best of integrative and conventional medicine in brilliant and individualized ways. Her whip-smart intelligence, Harvard training, and constant careful research bring us the latest and best in women’s health. Add her extraordinary care, not only for her clients but for Mother Earth (She is the quintessential green organic gynecologist.), and she leaves the rest of us in the dust. All of these exceptional qualities make her the best integrative gynecologist in the U.S. Having worked with such greats as Dr. Christiane Northrup, I do not give such a recommendation lightly. Dr. Sara is here to bring greatness to our health world; we are fortunate to be on the receiving end of her wonderful gifts and expertise.

Dr. Sara Gottfried, MD, produces a phenomenal transformation in her clients. Using quantitative survey techniques, we were able to demonstrate substantial increases in energy and reductions in depressed mood (using an externally validated measure). Further, the data show exceptionally high levels of satisfaction. These results provide powerful evidence of the effectiveness of her programs.
