What is Pancha Karma?

Pancha Karma is a five cleanse process of clearing toxins from all the systems of your body. It is a treatment of ancient ayurveda medicine that has been practices for thousands of years.

Traditionally it uses 5 specific cleanse therapies and in modern times we revise this to fit the home cleanser. I take into heart what is needed to create a home cleanse for the modern home cleanser, and meet you where you are.

How can this home pancha karma cleanse help you?

It can:

  • Balance all doshas (your current constitutional make up)
  • Adjust your relationship with food
  • Heal and reset your digestive system
  • Increase your digestive abilities
  • Enhance immunity
  • Reduce stress
  • Balance your mind
  • Calm your mind
  • Balance your emotional state
  • Balance your nervous system
  • Increase mental stamina by boosting your Ojas
  • Increase focus
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce or eliminate cravings
  • Reduce excess weight
  • Release toxins from the adipose tissues where they hide and are stored
  • Reset and increase your metabolism with long term results
  • Encourage wellness for your whole self        

How do we do this?:

  • Through cleaning up the diet for 15 days
  • Through incorporating certain daily activities
  • short daily yoga stretching and breathing sessions
  • short daily exercise sessions
  • mindful eating
  • journal inquiries
  • virtual meetings
  • Self massage
  • Fomentation aka steam therapy

Through the above we will travel on this home modified pancha karma path together.

The program is as effective as you want it to be.

You can take it as modified as you need or as deep as you can.

The commitment is what matters. Optional add ons are basti/enema therapy, nasya/oiling of sinuses therapy, a couple other add ons that you can receive instructions from me after registering regarding how to administer yourself.

Do you have a desire to reset your digestive system?

Do you want to cleanse the toxic build up that our modern world subjects us to?

Do you want to balance your interior to build a more sustainable self to handle life's demands?

Did you know that revealing the path to your most vibrant self is within your reach?

A successful guided home cleanse awaits you...


In this bi-annual small group cleanse I offer my 30 years of experience in the health field. I work intuitively and draw from this experience.

  • 30 years of experience in the healing arts including nutrition and herbal medicine
  • 15 of those are in ayurvedic medicine
  • I'm a long time yoga teacher---ERYT 500
  • Ayurvedic Doctor--AyD
  • Bodywork Therapist--CMT
  • Pancha Karma Specialist
  • Herbalist
  • Aromatherapist
  • Mindfulness and Meditation Instructor
  • And more....


I'll guide you through this gentle yet effective home cleanse.

People feel that this cleanse offered them more then they expected, some experiences are feeling calmer, cravings gone, weight loss, emotional healing, better food and meal habits, and a renewed relationship with self care and the self in general.

I usually don't say what can be, but I want you to know what possibilities await.


This is not a western fasting cleanse or a fad diet. In ayurveda we don't usually use fasting as a way to heal. We do however shift eating habits, eliminate certain food, and add in other practices to support this wholistic cleanse experience. You'll learn more once you register.

If the elimination of certain foods feels unattainable for some of you, I assure you this is a beautiful process of diving deeper into our relationship with foods. This may be the stepping stone you need to head toward long term healing or could be life changing.


Please call 707-775-8543 or email [email protected] if you'd like more information or to have any questions answered.

Shortly after registration you'll be sent via email an overview with a Pancha Karma cleanse outline, a suggested grocery list, and recipes.

Throughout the program you'll receive daily email instructions sometimes with short videos, more recipe options and during just the second phase you'll receive daily journal prompts with short yoga, breathing, and gentle exercise videos.

You'll have my support along the way. If you need more information or assistance I will be easily accessible and available for you during this cleanse.

~If you are ready to commit to your wellness and you want to take the steps to heal the deeper layers of your being,

then sign up for this group cleanse.~

~I meet patients where they are, and we journey from there.

I look forward to meeting you on this adventure.~
