The pH for Balance detox changed my life. I was feeling sluggish and bloated and not at my best for a while despite what I thought was a relatively healthy diet and exercise program. Not so. I was drinking too much coffee and wine and eating a lot of rich food. It was time for some spring cleaning. I thought: ‘what’s the harm? What could be better for your body than giving it all raw fruits and vegetables, enzymes and juices for a few weeks?’ I had no idea how profound the experience would be. My body cannot thank me enough. I’ve lost 11 pounds and I feel great! It was exactly the ‘clean slate’ I needed to start over. I have no cravings, having totally kicked caffeine and sugar (sorry, I just can’t give up the wine), and now have a solid base on which to grow. Through the program I learned about how different foods were affecting my system and how to incorporate a lot rawer and vegan options into my diet. I am now 60% raw and 80% vegan and at 37 I am the best I’ve ever been. My only regret is that I didn’t do these years ago. Hatice is a wonderful person and will guide you and support you every step of the way. She is a font of knowledge and experience and I don’t think I could have done something like this without her support. Thank you!

I'd never heard of a raw food cleanse, but I'd done several master cleanses and was curious. I knew if I could drink only lemonade and maple syrup for 10 days, eating raw food for 2 weeks was doable. Meeting Hatice and Aysin and hearing them talk about the cleanse and the raw food lifestyle, I knew right away I was in.
My biggest concern was being worried I would like too much, and want to go raw for good. And this would of course be some cosmic joke because though I ate healthy sometimes, I also love food - steak, bacon cheese burgers, anything sweet and don't forget the wine please!
When I started the cleanse I noticed 2 things right away. I had a steady stream of energy all day long and the more raw food I ate, the less hungry I was. You never expect to feel full on a salad for dinner or raw-violi. You don't expect raw deep dish pizza to taste good, but it does!
The raw program that Aysin and Hatice teach is about so much more than eating leafy greens and fruit, it's about a life style of putting only those things that are best for you in your body, listening to what it has to say, and making adjustments. Hatice teaches from a holistic point of view, bringing in speakers to teach ways to cleanse the mind and spirit in addition to the bodies.
You know cleanse is working when you feel great and the image in the mirror backs that up. The raw food cleanse made me feel so great I haven't gone back to eating the way I did before. Another pro - my allergies are gone! My body normally freaks out at the start of spring when all the plants wake up. Constantly sneezing, itching watery eyes, the works. This is the first year I can remember not having any of these symptoms. And many of my food sensitiveness have disappeared as well, I can eat fruits and veggies that literally made me sick my whole life, pre raw.
I'm now eating about 80% raw, and even decided to take the private cooking course from Hactice and Aysin. They taught me how to create simple and delicious meals without ever turning on my stove. The course was personalized to what I liked to eat, and full of yummy samples! It has definitely been a process for me, figuring out how to be raw without denying myself all of the old foods I enjoyed. One things that helps is raw dessert - all the taste with none of the guilt (or pounds).
Hactice and Aysin are amazing and I feel really blessed they serendipitously came into my life. Raw food has revolutionized how I eat and see food and its place in my life. Hactice and Aysin are the perfect conduits for this type of transformation, warm and kind, positive energy and good vibes radiate from them. If you are looking for a program to help you understand what true health is, I recommend working with these amazing ladies.

I really got everything I was wanting out of this Detox and it was clearly laid out and EZ to follow. I found the herbs very compatible with my body system, also working with a group made it fun and supportive.
One of the things I wanted was to lose some added pounds and get back on track with a more healthily diet which I ...did with the help of the detox. Almost right away I had more creative energy, focus and lightness in my body. This detox is something I think could benefit many people if they are willing to step out the unconscious eating habits we all develop and try something new!
