Detox Passport aims to change the parameters of what a ‘Detox’ entails. Erica Grenci and Emily Elliot are the the founders of the newly-released Passport, with the purpose to make the Detox Passport a cleansing, healing program with access to knowledgable naturopaths.
To me, Emily and Erica are what wellness feels like. In their presence, you feel at peace. Every time I get the pleasure of spending time with them I leave feeling encouraged about the accountability of the wellness community. Their passion for this program and desire to share their knowledge is felt immediately.
Having just finished naturopathic school, Erica and Emily both booked a trip to Bali without knowing they would be there at the same time. “Fate didn’t even require a date,” says Emily.
Their intuition called for it, and they followed their hearts. In Bali, they connected and experienced the healing and detoxifying foods and services provided by Bali.
“Bali”, which means healing in Balinese, provided the principles of what Erica and Emily would ultimately bring back in the form of Detox Passport. It was in one of Erica’s quiet moments of writing and reflection that the vision for Detox Passport was born. “Together, the goal is to make preventative health accessible, beginning with our own city,” says Erica. “We believe that people don’t need a vacation to feel their best. We’re so excited to change the way we practice health with the community.”
Detox Passport is more than just a generic brand of detox and cleansing. In its essence, it’s about bringing a community together to vibrate at its highest frequency. To feel emboldened by the passion that led Emily and Erica to create the community in the first place.
The 28-day comprehensive detox program offers dietary guidelines, herbal tea formulations, and a wealth of health and fitness ambassadors. The online exercise videos encourage health, self-care and meditation. Uniting mind, body and spirit as well as community.
The teas are my favourite thing. It’s the gentle and beautiful way to give added support to your organs. Put together by Erica, the four-week herbal cleanse targets each organ of elimination in the body. The teas are formulated for the colon, liver/gallbladder, kidney, and blood and lymph. The teas focus on cleansing, strengthening and boosting each organ. The formulations of the tea are backed by Erica’s background in botanical formulations.
Erica and Emily spent months going around the city and curating the best tips, lists, teachers and wellness spots. Detox Passport has partnered with select small businesses in Toronto to offer discounts to Detox Passport partners. A few of the businesses include Fresh Restaurants, Impact Kitchen, Live Organic Food, The Beet, The Grow OP, Station Cold Brew, and Titika Active. Registration has already opened. Teas are shipped to you, and there is a 28-day email and private Facebook group support.
That’s the core value of Detox Passport, bringing together people and businesses that support and live the healthy lifestyle. It’s easier to make sustainable changes when you’re in a supported community and feel welcomed by small, local businesses where you can eat and share a healthy meal that endorses your lifestyle, says Emily.
“I think a misconception of health is that you can just take supplements, but people aren’t making changes to the base of healthy living, says Emily.
“For us it’s about health empowerment so people can take control of their own health. They just need to know how,” says Erica.
What comes from every conversation I have with the ladies is this: We’re all in this together.
