After some initial hesitation, I decided to sign up for the 2022 Spring Cleanse with Candice. At the time, cutting out caffeine, alcohol, dairy, and sugar seemed overwhelming to think about. I’m really glad I did it! I learned that a cleanse isn’t just about restrictions – with Candice’s guidance, the focus is more on what you are adding to your diet, and why. The live zoom meetings were super helpful to me in explaining why we were pausing certain foods or adding others. Through the Facebook group, I  was able to see that others were having the same struggles at certain points during the cleanse. And the recipes were tasty, filling, and broadened my thinking on how to incorporate more vegetables and grains into my diet.

After the cleanse, I felt less stressed and irritable, and I truly felt that my digestion had improved. While I eventually returned to my prior diet, I have been thinking a lot about eating a more plant based diet and have looked into Ayurvedic cookbooks. I’m looking forward to the next cleanse to help me along!

Thank you, Candice! I almost dutifully followed your 12 day cleanse in May 2022, ignoring what wouldn’t fit my body and lifestyle, and implementing all other suggestions, especially incorporating many of the recipes. I cut out meat but not fish, dairy, added sugar, caffeine, and alcohol, for the cleanse, and kept it going, now six weeks later. In that time, I’ve lost 8 lbs., and as far as “cheating,” I mostly did the cleanse to reset my terrible sugar addiction, which made me feel awful and helped pack on too much weight, especially being home during the pandemic.
So far, I’ve only had three gluten- and dairy- free cupcakes, two scoops of ice cream, and a slice of chocolate cake (always eat chocolate cake from The Mile Away Restaurant!), and remained free of meat, caffeine, and alcohol (the last two were never an issue), with only a little dairy.
I’ve added many vegetables, beans, tofu, nuts, and beans to my diet, and when my brain says, “I want a snack,” I easily deflect to an apple or water with lemon. I’m also keeping sweets to the weekend, only once a day, so I can leaving the kitchen without any craving.
Your guidance, classes, exercise suggestions, and recipes were incredibly helpful. I’ve managed to change my bad eating habits to a way of eating I can use for years to come, and I would recommend anyone looking to reset their eating and lifestyle habits consider using your expertise to live a more healthy life.


This reset came at the right time for me. I’m a 45 year old female, with no major health problems and a healthy lifestyle. I have a stressful work environment, which I believe to be the source for most of the stress and anxiety in my life, and which lately has been more difficult to manage. My coping strategies included 3-4 cups of coffee a day, followed by 1-2 alcoholic beverages at night. The reset felt and sounded impossible at first, but with Candice’s support and guidance, I eased my way into it.
The reset had astoundingly positive results for me! I had overall better energy that was more steady throughout the day,  My reactions to stress are less severe.  A surprising benefit was the mental clarity and self-awareness that bloomed.  So many of my feelings over time have become blunted, and I could feel my inner child literally being “unstuck” from the muddy sludge. I felt like I was only beginning to scratch the surface of self-discovery when the cleanse ended.
While I am comfortable with eating and preparing plants, I’ve never been 100% plant based.  Candice and Laura did an excellent job preparing me and guiding me through plant based eating!  I learned great tips for food prep that helped make it manageable during a hectic work week.  The recipes provided were overall easy to follow and delicious. I especially appreciated Laura’s guidance on intuitive cooking, where you cook based on what’s in the fridge versus what’s on a recipe card.  I gained a lot of confidence and satisfaction cooking intuitively and found some very satisfying flavor combos!
Now that the reset is complete, I have a better connection with how what I eat and drink makes me feel.  I’ve found some new practices that have improved my mindset and quality of life, and I feel comfortable continuing many of these practices on a daily basis. I’m looking forward to the next reset in the fall!  Thanks so much Candice and Laura for helping me live my best life!
Big love, hugs and gratitude!

“The fall back into balance Ayurvedic cleanse and nutrition group was the highlight to my season transition. Candice is so knowledgeable and kind. The group was welcoming and supportive. My favorite part other than Candice was the fabulous recipes she provided. It was such a great way to break out of my cooking rut! “

I recommend Candice Trudel, Holistic Nutritionist and Ayurvedic Health practitioner, at Nashua Family Chiropractic. I just finished her three-week Spring Cleanse, and feel wonderful! Candice provided recipes, guidelines, knowledge about Ayurvedic nutrition, and ways to eat in a healthy way, so the group knew why we should eat as planned in the spring. She took us shopping to show us how to choose healthy food, and was available to answer questions throughout the three weeks. Through the course, we learned how to think of food in a better way and to make healthy choices, without the dreaded starvation that we always think of with a cleanse. There were plenty of options of what to eat, and luckily, I’m now able to make those better choices easily.

Candice knows her stuff! I highly recommend her to people who want to feel better, maybe lose weight, and want to make a major change so their diet doesn’t hurt them, but helps them.

As a dental hygienist, I believe in scientific based western medicine; however, as most of us experienced at some point in our lives… not all can be solved through typical protocol.

Candice taught me the foundation of the ancient medicine of Ayurveda which helped me understand myself and body function in an alternative manner. Candice is a wealth of information and I thank her wholeheartedly. Practicing natural remedies is a gift. I find it a disadvantage we are not often taught how to take care of our whole self with natural methods, especially since most medications and medical
procedures come with the cost of a side effect or other type of risk.

Candice treated me as an individual and created a specialized treatment plan. With her support and guidance, I now have better digestion and reduced daily stress. Thank you!!!

I saw Candice for an overall wellness visit. She had great recommendations that I had never thought to do for myself. She really individualizes a plan for you. Just in changing a few things she recommended I saw results. I have been less fatigued and sleeping better! Very professional and attentive! Thanks Candice!!!

I had suffered from poor sleep, poor digestion, mental fogginess and constant exhaustion for years until I saw Candice. She recommended that I get a food allergy test. So I did and I found out I was allergic to gluten, eggs and dairy all these years. She put me on a guided diet that I followed (and still follow) for 6 months. I can’t fully express the positive impact it has had on me. I sleep through the night and wake up feeling rested for the first time I can even remember. My digestion is great and I no longer constantly have that terrible feeling in my belly. Her approach works as long as you are committed to following her protocol. I can’t recommend her enough!

I’ve been seeing Candice for health and nutrition guidance for over a year now and the changes I’ve seen in that time have been amazing! My digestion, energy, and overall balance have been so much better than ever before. It’s awesome learning how to take care of yourself in a way that is specifically meant for you! So many times I’ve tried more popular methods for my overall well-being but none have really ever worked well enough for me. Now I know why. Working with Candice has helped me learn that we are all different and respond to everything we do in different ways. Knowing that has made all the difference! Such a professional and positive experience I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks Candice!

I have always suffered from digestive issues but just assumed it was normal. I dealt with stomach pains and excess gas not realizing there was anything I could do to fix it. After working with Candice I discovered that I had some intolerances to food that I could avoid and clear up my gut issues. I always struggle with cooking or eating healthy but Candice made it easy by giving food suggestions and helping tailor some flavorful delicious meals to my diet needs that never made me feel like I was missing out on something. Candice spent a ton of time researching for my unique situation and I would highly recommend anyone seek out her expertise.
