Three Weeks to Wellness Cleanse

Offers Transformative Results with Community Support

In 2008, Elle Palmer attended Dr. John McDougall’s 10-day wellness program in Santa Rosa, California, that focused on a plant-based diet. What she learned there proved to be life-changing: she lost 20 pounds, lowered her cholesterol by 60 points, jumpstarted her immune system, got rid of chronic headaches and was inspired to share this healthy lifestyle with others.

Today, Palmer runs Three Weeks to Wellness, a transformational 21-day cleanse that helps people improve their health by avoiding meat, dairy, sugar, gluten, alcohol and caffeine. The key ingredient of the program is support – an important factor since completing a cleanse can be challenging.

“People love the community feeling of it. It is like junk food rehab. And when you have a group of people that are holding you accountable, it helps you stay on track. After 21 days of eating clean, you have shifted bad habits into healthy ones,” says Palmer, who offers tips on deciphering food labels, daily informational emails, potlucks, cooking classes and guest speakers.

Palmer says the benefits of Three Weeks to Wellness are two-fold: People are empowered to heal themselves, which, in turn, helps the environment.

“The program reduces health care costs and cuts down on the 10 billion factory farmed animals killed annually in the U.S. This decreases the methane released by the animals that accounts for 17% of the greenhouses gasses.”
