Like the three branches of government, bodies, minds, and souls often find themselves in contentious disagreement over how much wine is too much wine in a voting booth. Reconcile triune tribunals with today’s Groupon: for $139, you get a three-week weight-loss and detox program at White Oak Center in Stamford (a $335 value).
During the three-week nutritional and detox program, Dr. Victoria Shikhman and White Oak Center's staff help patients rid their bodies of harmful toxins in pursuit of healthier, more energetic living. A one-hour consultation with a naturopathic physician precedes the detox, where guests receive detailed nutritional counseling and decode mysterious prophecies written in Alpha-Bits. The program equips its participants with a three-week supply of five organic herbal supplements that flush toxins out of the body. Without triggering gastrointestinal distress or booby traps hidden in the gallbladder, the herbal concoction balances the body's biochemistry and galvanizes metabolic rate and energy levels. The combination of White Oak's structured recipe plan and whole-food supplements may ameliorate long-standing ailments including indigestion and sluggishness.
