How to Properly Food Combine (Late Summer Excerpt)
Food combining is a theory that eating simply and in right combinations will greatly improve digestive function. Foods have different digestive rates, sugars and enzyme structures. Therefore, mixing many different in the same meal can confuse and slow digestion leading to fermentation and reduced nutrient absorption.
In food combining, less is truly more, which may not always be easy to do, but for a cleanse it makes perfect sense. Enjoy as much food as you want — just in the correct combination. This way you will build and cleanse at the same time and never feel deprived.
In this cleanse we will honor the most basic 3 rules in food combining:

3 Rules In Food Combining:
- Eat fruit alone
- Do not eat both animal protein and starch at the same meal
- Do not eat both fruits and vegetables at the same meal
Note: Cucumbers, celery, lettuce and leafy greens combine with anything
Time Between Foods:
- After eating fruit, wait 30-45 before eating a meal
- After eating a heavy protein meal, wait 3 hours before eating fruit
Food Combining Chart
There are many, many food combining charts online. This one is very simple and easy to follow. We agree with most of this chart. Remember, the most important thing is to not mix fruit with a heavy protein meal (not on this cleanse at least ;)

What People Are Saying About Our Program:
"I can not describe how radically my life has changed just from this spring cleanse. The experiences of you both give us such an amazing base of knowledge to put together with our own and I could not imagine going on from here without more to look forward to from LLLM." -- Kathryn G.
"Dana and Brent this is my 3rd go around with the 2 of you and I have learnt so much. I will continue to be a part of this as long as you are here. Thank you for all you do. " -- Lisa N.
"Dana and Brent, I can never thank you enough for creating LLLM and for all of the priceless help, tools and guidance you have offered to so many of us struggling to reclaim our health! You both continue to bless me and so many others! I have seen improvements in both my health and spirit by following all the tools and experts you have provided us in the cleanses. I owe you a debt of gratitude and consider you both dear friends. THANK YOU THANK YOU… a thousand times thank you! " -- Shelly P.
"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.

Endless Summer Playlist
Watch and Learn (Summer Video Clips)
We always start our programs with the depth of wisdom from LLLM faculty Marc Weill. In this program Marc shares how clearing the Lymph system is essential to recovery, even more than killing bugs. As well, we go into understanding proper food combining for optimal digestion.
Additionally, the dynamic Dr. Robert Morse will share how green foods and fruit can be used therapeutically for lymph detox and cellular renewal. Seth Linn, a masterful Canadian trained DO shares with us the impact of being in sympathetic (fight or flight) and how to get into a parasympathetic to initiate healing. Michael Vladeck, a recovered Cancer patient and an extraordinary life coach for chronically patients goes deep into the psyche to ask ourselves what we need from illness.
We also reviewed some of our favorite “starter” essential oils as well as did a fun skit on what it’s REALLY like to travel on an airplane when you're sensitive #bringyourkit! [Order Here to Unlock the Summer Program]

Get Nourished: Soups, Smoothies, Recipes, and More
Proper fruit and greens consumption for cleansing is a focus in our Late Summer program while the weather is still warm. And that's when we recommend smoothies, when the weather is warm outside. But pay attention to your body. If you are feeling cold, then a smoothie is probably not your best choice in that moment. Choose a warming soup instead. Soups are foundational in our seasonal programs because of its building and nourishing nature. When you are warm— smoothie. When you feel cold—soup. Some days you will choose both!

What Past 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 believe 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.

"The Late (or Indian summer) is a very special and transitional time of year. The days slowly grow shorter with gifts of golden hues and magnificent sunsets. Now is the time to harness the golden light — (body and mind) and move strongly into the colder months ahead."
