Everyone knows they need to be drinking more water.  

In fact, when I ask potential clients what the number one change is that they already know they should make, the answer is usually, "I know I need to drink more water."  This is also sometimes followed up with, "But I don't reallylike water!" Let me introduce you to the concept of infused water.

Infused Water
 

THE BASICS

  • Infused water is a combination of fruits, herbs and water

  • Gentle daily detox
