You'll start the Reset with an in-depth orientation we'll you'll meet other like-minded participants. Throughout the cleanse you'll have support from our expert Ayurvedic practitioner and inspiration from our group forums. No need to cleanse alone! Many of our participants still stay in touch with each other.
This is the core of the Reset. You'll be eating a custom-spiced mung dahl and rice (Kicheri) dish for 7 days. The mono-diet allows your digestions to 'take a break' and re-calibrate itself - without the uncomfortable deprivation of juice and water cleanses. You'll also receive specially designed Ayurvedic digestion and detoxification herbs to accelerate the re-calibration process.
In the Reintegration you methodically reintroduce other foods back into your diet. This process helps you learn how certain foods may impact you. You'll also have had your taste buds reset - so it is often like eating food for the first time again. Knowledge is power - and the Reintegration gives you the knowledge to know what food work for you and when.
The Urban Reset is designed to cleanse your body but is also meant to educate you on better eating and living habits. We call it the Reset for a reason - people have an opportunity to discard, create and refine existing patterns of eating. The Reset is not a fad diet - it is foundational.

The Reset was chance to step back from habit and routine and be more conscious about what I eat, how I prepare it and how it factors into my life. I feel more connected to real food and less dependent on food as a way to get through the day (aside from genuine appetite). The Reset gave me the space to go beyond the food, too, and claim time for calm, and for myself
I was a bit apprehensive about starting a one week cleanse, especially during a hectic time in my life. My experience with other cleanses have not been that successful. I'm usually hungry and end up bailing after a few days. My experience on the Urban Reset couldn't have been more different. First and foremost, I was never hungry! The support provided by Malcolm and Eric made all the difference in the experience. I loved getting the morning messages as to what to expect for the day and any changes I might be experiencing. My cravings for refined sugar have disappeared, my head is clear and I lost 7.5 pounds on top of it all. Thank you both. I'll be back for the fall cleanse.
Samana+ understands the busy, urban lifestyle and has created a cleanse that can work for you no matter how busy you are. It's an accessible way to give yourself and your body a break without going hungry, when other cleanses might be much harder to handle with a demanding professional life.
For the past 15 years I have been regularly hit with waves of severe, not-so-seasonal allergies--dust, grasses, mold- -that were only mildly alleviated by over-the-counter medications.Two months before my wedding I had the worst allergy attack of my life during a site visit at our outdoor location. I immediately found Samana and began the Reset diet. I am so happy to report that my allergies COMPLETELY disappeared. Immediately. 15 year of allergies and for 6 months now I have been completely and consistently allergy-free, deeply breathing through my nose all the time! Windy days don't bother me and I can play outside as much as I like with no allergy symptoms. None. Doing the Reset diet has really changed my life. Not only did I immediately feel healthier, calmer, clearer, but I also learned to understand my digestion and what my body needs to stay in balance. The Reset diet is something I will happily turn to for the rest of my life. I don't always eat as well as I should, but at least now I know how to quickly get back on track.
