Our Seasonal Cleanse Process
Phase 1: The first step in our Seasonal Programs is to build up our bodies. By hydrating and adding in nutrient dense foods, we crowd out the bad foods and slowly restore our reserves. We do this with electrolyte drinks and healing mineral soups (or smoothies) and other health-generating recipes. In this phase we eat as we normally do and just add in the good stuff.
Phase 2: In the second phase we start to purge the inflammatory foods (ie. sugar, gluten, dairy, corn, etc) and trade them for healthier options with delicious replacements that we love to eat/drink every day. Our recipes are quick, easy, and often made in batches. We know what it's like to have limited energy and brain power. Our cleanses are intentionally simplified for your success.
Phase 3: In the third phase we continue with eliminating bad habits and begin incorporating self-care detox methods like enemas, castor oil packs, detox bathes, Ayurvedic methods, and energy healing work. With each season, we focus on different detox protocols to address each organ system in the body, year-round.
Phase 4: As we begin to release toxins in our bodies, old stuck emotions begin to surface. This is the time we go deep into what is at the core of our pain. Through inquiry and presence, we move from pain of isolation into a renewed sense of connection and community.

Why We Cleanse with the Seasons
- Our bodies need to be NOURISHED to cleanse. In the Seasonal Programs, we eat a lot. We don't believe in deprivation for sensitive bodies.
- We choose to do Seasonal Programs because our body's needs change with the seasons. We recognize that what worked in the Summertime doesn't work in the Winter.
- We all know chronic illness can be physically exhausting but also mentally and spirituality. Our programs provides info and support in an incredibly loving and safe space.
- Our environment is toxic. Even healthy people need to cleanse. But for those with chronic illness, it's mandatory and ongoing.
- By cleansing and optimizing our digestion, we make our bodies inhospitable to the microbes.
- It's all about energy. By removing habits that leak our energy (i.e. bad food, painful relationships, old habits), we give our body the life force it needs to get into homeostasis and heal.
- The lymph is our body's sewer system. When we optimize our lymph detox (get it all flowing again), pain often decreases.
- Because our bodies need support before, during and after treatments.

What Our Members Are Saying:
"All of Marc Weill's information has been invaluable; I will always remember the GALT, so important. I also find it encouraging that the 2 of you created an extraordinary method in which to support people with Lyme disease (the most complicated illness on this planet). It shows us that something good can come out of something that can at times seem there is no way out. This is an inspiration that I hope will spur others on to reach out to one or many with Lyme disease. The doctors and the scientists can be helpful, but I belive that it's the people that have this illness that will find the answers. Love wins." -- Deborah
"You are really inspiring Dana Walsh. I think the way I happened onto the Cleanse page was serendipitous. I just keep getting more and more informed. My body is talking and I am hearing it so clearly now. I honestly thought I would never get to this point EVER. I felt so broken and no one able to help. I cannot believe I lived through it some days. I am so beyond grateful for everything that is offered here. The sphere of influence that you and Brent Martin created keep growing and the ripples of inner beauty profound. Thank you from all of my healing cells!!!" -- Jody B.
"Sending you my heartfelt love. I am grateful beyond words to have participated and learned so much!" -- Valerie B.

"A big thank you to you both for a wonderful 6 week program. My husband had bought me the Core series for a late Christmas present in January and I had wanted to do your winter cleanse but was a little too bleary at that point for it. This cleanse was so helpful to me, so much great information and weekly interaction, I definitely want to participate in your future ones." -- Samantha F.
"Beverly’s work with us had such an impact on me. I was suddenly hit with such strong emotional pain that surfaced. My chest grew tight and I began sobbing. As Beverly continued though, my chest loosened and the pain began to ebb. Even my tears changed - from deep sadness and grief to those of gratitude and joy. I'm tearing up again just thinking about it. It was afterward that I realized "I am not my past, I am not my future, I am simply NOW." " -- Sandra
"The results of this cleanse have been such a surprise. Something deep shifted and cleared that is enabled me to go from feeling "sick and needing to heal" to connecting to and identifying with what is already whole and healthy. This has made it possible to start moving on with my life and not wait to be perfectly well before pursuing my dreams.
Brent and Dana, I can't thank you enough for the truly holistic program you have created. It's so easy to get focused on just the physical, when who we are is SO much more. It was a pleasure to share this journey with everyone participating. See you in the Spring!" -- Dara J.
"I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart! This winter cleanse was so nourishing in every aspect of my being. I look forward to the Spring Cleanse. Many thanks again!" -- Michelle P.
"Looking forward to spring, as each cleanse, introduces new recipes, new simple shifts to keep my body strong.
I must say it's hard being a "LYME WARRIOR" and at times I just want to stop. Lyme Less live more helps to keep me on track. Thank you." -- Louise S.
"Dana and Brent ( and Marc!) I just want to express gratitude again for all you've done to make this cleanse such an informative, nurturing, communal experience. Though I've spent years focusing on my diet and lifestyle for healing, I've implemented a bunch of new things in the last 3 weeks that are working really well for me. You guys really went above and beyond and in my long journey with this illness, I'm accustomed to doing most of the work. It feels amazing to have a web of info and support to rest into. Can't wait for the next one!" -- Naomi S.
"You all are such an inspiration and source of healing!!! Thank you Dana Walsh and Brent Martin for developing this incredible program for all of us!!! I can't put into words how much you all have helped me !
I can't wait till Springtime! Hugs everyone......" -- Tara M.
"Brent Martin and Dana Walsh thank you so much. The Winter cleanse was even better than the Fall cleanse and I can only imagine what you will do this Spring. You have formed a great community with Lyme Less Live More. Be proud of everything you have done and the lives you have made better! " -- Beth S.
"LLLM is about about finding our real, our true health, about healing on all levels, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually and in all ways. It is about looking deep inside ourselves and discovering that we have what it takes to get well on all levels, this despite the medical disease-driven, greed-driven culture in which we live and which will demean us for our courage to veer away from what it has to offer, and instead choose the path of health. LLLM is representative of and a leader in this regard." -- Chaya G.
"The call with Beverly Montgomery was divine. This cleanse has brought me to a completely different place in my healing. The calls and information are full of practical, down to earth tools and also full of the healing balm of love, authenticity, and compassion. For me its a magical and potent combination. Thank you thank you thank you Dana Walsh and Brent Martin for the exquisite cleanse and for the pure honesty of your offering.
And super thankful I have this base of tools to support my organs for the cleansing I will assist when the Spring Cleanse begins. So so cool!!! Its so good to be in community around healing Lyme, the heart, our lives, our stories. The support and collective belief in moving forward and reclaiming our vital light is so compelling. I feel that space being held and shared and that is maybe the most powerful healing part of this whole cleanse." -- Carin V.
"Dana and Brent, THANKS a million for this. I totally soaked up just as much info and fabulous recipes as you could give me. I've deeply appreciated the support and guidance. The fb page was a great idea - I truly enjoyed posting and connecting. it's been extremely fun to do it together - going it alone is not where it's at. Power in numbers. Much, much love to both of you. XO" -- Doreen S.
"Just a big big thank you hug to you, Dana, and Marc. this has been such a beautiful, embracing experience. The FB community you created has been such a blessing, and your knowledge, caring hearts, and sweet spirits have led us into healing. Sending you love and gratitude." -- Gail
"To Dana Brent and the entire group of loving beings in this group, in Sanskrit there is a word for a group of beings initiated and practicing the same lineage, while we may not have chosen to be initiated into the Lyme lineage here we are, that word is Kula and I consider this a beautiful healing Kula that I have been honored to be a part of. I have long resisted any type of Lyme support group I think I was somewhat in denial and also afraid it would be a group forum for laments I also always feel I can do it on my own,which has its merit but as we all know in this circumstance support, understanding, compassion, and guidance are so needed. I spent way too much time in isolation and am so grateful to have found this amazing group at the time when I am finally ready to be in a Kula of warrior beings managing indescribable hardships. Just that step of allowing myself to participate has been very healing. Blessings and gratitude to you all" -- Joyce K.
"At the end of the first cleanse we were on a conference call and somehow I asked Dana and Brent if they could set up some kind of forum or message board for us. This Facebook Group has far exceeded what I had hoped for. To be able to interact with each other, to hear the love, compassion and wisdom of the group has filled my soul and heart. I so agree with with what you all have expressed. Check out the Core, the first 12 speakers, that we did first. A treasure of knowledge brought to us by Brent and Dana." -- Patty M.
"Dana and Brent, you have used your experience to create the most supportive, sensitive, informative, gentle, and loving thing! And I have felt supported just knowing that you and the group is out there. Thank you thank you!! And cleansers, Congrats on even the smallest steps...it all gradually adds up!! Take good care all! xo" -- Beth R.
"Dana Walsh and Brent Martin have helped me in ways that transcend the cleanse. I realize how isolated I have felt. The fall cleanse was so nourishing emotionally and this one even more so. It feels wonderful not to be alone and I have appreciated how helpful everyone is. They are a gift to all of us. And I am getting to know many new and lovely Lymies." -- Lynne D.
"I've learned so much on this cleanse! Thank you to Dana and Brent and to all of you friends. I keep hearing Dana in my head saying "Stick with the basics". So helpful! It's easy to get overwhelmed and feel like I need to constantly search for the next 'thing' that will help. Dana and Brent, you are gifted teachers. I feel so blessed to be part of this amazing network." -- Katie F.
"What an amazing experience, my heart is filled with gratitude and appreciation. Thank you Dana and Brent again for all the time, energy, care and commitment, present in this cleanse. I feel blessed to have been able to participate and to experience my health and life shift in such a beautifully positive way!! I missed a couple calls due to being a parent obligations or work but loved every minute of it!! See you here in the spring! Thank you!! " -- Shari K.
"You guys are awesome. I am so sorry you have Lymes, but I am so blessed to have you leading the way. You have definitely found your calling. You both do such a great job with the interviews. Getting to the right questions and to the heart of things. Brent you have such a happy cheerful attitude and Dana your soul is so beautiful! Listening to the initial 9 interviews you have on line pulled me out of the horrible, depressing, I am never going to get better place. I finally saw hope and optmism. This cleanse, the recipes, and interviews have been great. I don't want it to end. Thank you for all you and please keep going. This is definitely your calling." -- Trisha L.
"There's so much about this group that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! You all make me feel "normal". I've had sensitivities to smells for so long and just thought it was me. My husband says I"m like a wolf. If my child's friend walks in our kitchen door, I can smell either the laundry detergent his mom used or smell the peanut butter he had for lunch. The peanut butter doesn't bother me, but that laundry detergent sends me over the edge!. I have never been part of any lyme group and I am so lucky to have found all of you!" -- Leslie B.
"My experience is that most Lyme people have some emotional wounding around loneliness and isolation and I have experienced that your programs are really helping to address those feelings on top of all the great information. It is just healing to hear all the stories and to know you are not alone in this.
I really don't know how to thank you enough for all this means to me. I so appreciate the both of you. This program is so well designed. I did the body ecology diet for a long time and even though my health was great while on the diet, I emotionally felt restricted and alone. Your program is so supportive and much more my style.
You are such beautiful people.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart." -- Suzy N
"Just wanted to say again how much I treasure and appreciate all the wonderful things you are doing, Dana and Brent and Marc. I am learning so much, feel so supported and so embraced by this group of wonderful people. This is my first LLLM cleanse, but will certainly not be my last! You are doing wonderful things, and I hope you each know how much you are valued and loved, not just for all you do but for the kind and gentle people you are." -- Gail W.
"Thank you for all of you and thank you for this amazing group Dana Walsh and Brent Martin....... I don't know if you can begin to understand the fundamental changes you are empowering all of us to achieve. xo" -- Alicia B.
"I just wanted to thank you for offering this cleanse, often, I just did not know where to begin in my healing, as you know the symptoms are so over whelming.
Cleansing is the first step! It's so obvious, but difficult to see when disease takes over. The information and professional interviews have been incredibly helpful, I feel like I can take a deep breath and exhale. I like your no pressure attitude, I am on my way...........
Also thanks so much for making it affordable. " -- January G.
"Thanks for doing this program. The speakers were all fantastic, the cleanse was paced perfectly and you both are awesome. I'll miss the weekly calls but I feel great and I have the tools to keep going. Looking forward to hearing more from you in the new year.
Peace, love and health," -- Terri W.
"Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort that you have put into helping others. You two are the best! You make me feel less alone on this lonely Lyme recovery road." -- Brenda F.
