- January 2013
We are excited to be partnering with Austin UltraHealth this month. Like EcoClean, nutritionist Brianne Herman and Dr. Amy Myers believe deeply that one of the most important things we can do to achieve optimal health is to rid our bodies and environments of toxins. Below is a guest blog describing their exciting New Year guided cleanse, The Myers Way.
New Year, New You!
Written by: Amy Myers, MD
Everyone is cleansing for the New Year but what’s all the hype about?! In my practice, Austin UltraHealth, I have all my patients go through a dietary-based cleanse as part of their treatment. The Myers Way is a 21-Day Cleanse, Detox and Diet that rids the body of toxins and inflammation to promote healing and optimal health. Eighty percent of the healing that happens in my clinic comes from following The Myers Way, which is based on the tenets of Functional Medicine. This emerging field of science-based medicine treats the root causes of disease, not just the symptoms, and treats the whole body as one brilliant and complex interconnected system (a radically different approach than our current, specialty-based medical system provides). I have condensed the science into a simple, step-by-step, dietary program that can be done by anyone—singles, couples, groups of friends supporting each other, or an entire family looking to make a change towards better health, including children over the age of two. (Note that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your physician before beginning this program.) My nutritionist, Brianne Herman, RD, LD walks all of my patients through The Myers Way as they take steps towards their healing and taking control of their health.
We want to share this life changing program with you!

5 Reasons to Cleanse:
- To rid your body of toxins and inflammation. Tossing the ‘bad’ foods and enjoyed the ‘good’ foods helps your body feel and function at the high level that you are naturally designed to feel and function.
- To resolve chronic conditions. Many of our patients find complete resolution of IBS, seasonal allergies, fatigue, mood and hormonal imbalance by following this dietary-based program.
- To achieve your ideal weight. When our bodies are burdened with toxic and inflammatory foods it is very difficult (likely impossible!) to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
- To discover hidden food sensitivities. Certain foods may be the cause of your everyday ailments or barriers to optimal health.
- To prevent disease. When you can identify our triggers of inflammation you can eliminate them, allowing your bodies to function at an optimal level and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

We are delighted to announce the Hill Country Conservancy as our first PROPS partner of 2013! HCC was our very first PROPS partner way back in September 2011. Since then we have raised over $5500 for local non-profits working to solve the issues facing our community. We are proud of our PROPS program and encourage Austinites to help us make a difference by supporting the program. We donate 5% of our Wednesday sales to our partner of the month. By bringing cleaning to EcoClean on Wednesdays, customers automatically contribute to a great cause… it’s a win win win!
Working every day to preserve open space in the Barton Springs Aquifer region.
Hill country Conservancy and its partners have preserved 40,000 acres in the Barton Springs Edwards Aquifer since 2000,
protecting 15% of the aquifer region as open space forever.
HCC was founded in 1999 to preserve – forever – large strategic natural areas that conserve critical water features, preserve outdoor recreation opportunities, and help maintain the Hill Country’s unique quality of life. Their philosophy is simple. Once Hill Country land is gone, it’s gone for good. When HCC preserves it, it’s here forever.
