Are you ready to become your healthiest self?

How will you feel after 21 days?
Hear from past Reset participants:
“The Reset gave me an accountable way to hone in on my sugar addiction and make better choices for 3 weeks. I wasn't perfect but learned a lot about myself and got to experience what it feels like to be more balanced and not have my usual energy and hunger swings all day. Good food does wonders and for me it's all about the preparation and planning!”
“The 21-day reset helped me be more in-tune with my body and the impact various foods have on my mood - both physically and mentally. Making and sticking to changes that are better for me seemed almost effortless with this no pressure, no stress plan.”
“I have been connected to food professionally my whole life, and have studied nutrition in many different formats and understandings. Rachel does her research, has an holistic understanding rooted in Chinese Medicine but extending beyond it, and presents it all in an approachable non-dogmatic fashion. She's a joy to work with.”
“The reset is a wonderful invitation to slow down and invite intention into my daily life.”
“Thank you. I’ve learned a bit more about how certain foods affect my body and how I feel. I’ve also learned what triggers my “munchie” states and discovered it’s not that hard to avoid these foods.”
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will I be hungry all the time?
No way! The 21-day Reset isn’t about deprivation. It’s about nourishing your body with the right kinds of foods, consumed in the right proportions, at the right time.
2. Do I have to have “mad skills” in the kitchen to participate?
That depends on your definition of “mad skills,” really. If the only appliance you’ve ever used in your kitchen is the microwave to heat frozen meals, then I have some bad news for you: you’re going to have to cook. But if you know your way around your cutting board and your oven, the 21-Day Reset won’t be a burden for you. While cooking your own food is really best, there are always options for dining out and navigating our real lives while paying more attention to what we consume.
3. Will I really see results in just 21 days?
You bet! You’ll feel less sluggish, less bloated, and more energetic than you can remember being. The 21-Day Reset gives you the results you’re looking for because you won’t be eating food that causes irritation and inflammation in your body. Three weeks is long enough for your body to start healing itself. Read the testimonials for a sense of how past participants have fared.
4. Do I have to live in Santa Cruz?
You sure don’t! If you do live in Santa Cruz, you can benefit from the optional Reset friendly meals from our friends at Golden Roots Kitchen, but the community and delivery is all virtual, so you can participate from the comfort of your own internet connection.
5. Do I need to be available for the live calls and webinars?
Don’t worry — live content will be recorded and shared via email and on our Facebook Group, so if you can’t make it, you can watch the recordings later.
6. I don’t want to give up all my favorite foods. Do I have to?
Definitely not, unless you count “Texas toast” as salad. You won’t have to eat anything crazy. In fact, the 21-Day Reset applies to all kinds of eaters: vegans, vegetarians, paleo eaters, etc. However, I will help you to examine possible food sensitivities and consider eliminating and substituting known irritants.
7. Do I have to take supplements or herbs?
I love herbs and will recommend them throughout the program, but no, you’re not required to take anything. Your body, your choice.
8. Will you be available during the Reset so I can ask questions?
Yes! I am here to help, and you’ll be able to contact me via e-mail and our private Facebook Group. If you feel that you need a deeper dive into your personal health concerns or struggle with autoimmune disorders, you might consider adding on the discounted 1:1 personal consultation or visiting my practice to do a deeper dive and get the healing support you need.
9. What makes this Reset different from the other cleanses and programs I've tried?
Yes, this Reset is a 21-day jumpstart into an anti-inflammatory diet, but it is more of a lifestyle deep dive than a cleanse. We use lessons from Chinese medicine, functional medicine and yoga, as well as draw upon Dr. Farber's extensive history working with patients suffering from depression, eating disorders and digestive problems to gently shift daily habits and mindset for lasting success. During the Reset, you have the opportunity to look at your sleep patterns, moods, hydration levels, distractions and support systems to create some new and lasting improvements. This puts you in an upward spiral of health and energy, and more importantly give you the foundation to be able to make better choices that truly nourish you.
About Dr. Rachel Farber, DAOM, LAc
As a doctor of integrative Chinese medicine, a licensed acupuncturist, and a professor of Clinical Nutrition as well as Gynecology and Obstetrics, I’ve had a decades-long journey in natural and Chinese medicine.
I first became interested in Chinese medicine during my own health crisis. During an extensive recovery from bulimia nervosa in my youth, I skipped my menses for several months and consulted an acupuncturist. The acupuncture and herbs — undertaken for a period of several months — restored my cycle and were also instrumental in my recovery from bulimia. The process instilled me with a lifelong curiosity and passion for Chinese medicine.
As someone who also has autoimmune disease and comes from a family history of autoimmune disorders, I delved into research into how Chinese medicine naturally treats autoimmunity. I haven’t come up for air as modern research into how herbs, acupuncture and diet profoundly affect epigenetics is prolific. My current research is focused on how an anti-inflammatory diet can prevent and reverse autoimmune disorders. I practice what I preach with a healthy lifestyle and an anti-inflammatory diet, finding lots of joy and balanced indulgence along the way!
The next 21-Day Reset starts on April 8 and runs through April 28, 2019.
We’ll be kicking things off in our closed Facebook group to meet each other and get acquainted starting NOW.
The people who are doing the 21-Day Reset with you are your peers, but they’ll become more than that.
They’ll be your accountability partners, your cheerleaders, and your support group.
They’ll help you through the tough parts, and you’ll help them, too.
Reclaim your health!
The 21-Day Reset may help you lose weight, but that’s decidedly not the point: the point is to reset, to create a clean slate, and to learn how to make better choices. When we make intentional choices for our bodies, we create an upward spiral that leads to better energy, sleep and even more purposeful work and healthier relationships.
