Why Do A Detox?

As we begin our journey through our 28-Day Detox, I thought it would be a good idea to give a quick overview about the program that we use and recommend.

There is a lot of talk about detoxes wherever you look, and for good reason.

Today, we are all exposed to chemicals in the foods we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink.  Many common complaints to practitioners, such as mental and physical fatigue, may be signs of environmental overload.  Supporting the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process may be beneficial.

It’s important to remember that not all detoxification programs are science-based, and some may deplete the body of vital nutrients and energy to support the natural elimination process.  The Detox Program that we recommend and use is designed around helping the liver – our body’s main detoxification organ – eliminate toxins efficiently and effectively.  This requires important vitamins, minerals, and amino acids from protein in order to work properly.

This program has been used by thousands of practitioners for more than 20 years.  It’s tried and true, it’s safe, and most of all it’s effective.

The Clear Change Program follows a Simple 3 – Step Protocol.

Step 1 is the Initial Clearing Phase.  You’ll start to eliminate certain foods from your diet that may be potential toxins while gradually increasing the nutritional supplementation.

Step 2 is the Metabolic Detoxification Phase.  On these days, you’ll only be eating from a select variety of low allergy-potential foods but will be increasing your intake of the nutritional supplementation provided with the Clear Change Program.

Step 3 is the Reintroduction Phase.  In this stage you’ll slowly reintroduce foods back into your diet, paying attention to any reactions you may have as you reintroduce foods.

As you go through the program, we encourage you to drink plenty of water, and eat plenty of food.  This isn’t a weight loss program, and you shouldn’t be hungry on the program, so eat as much of the allowed foods as you like!

So there you have it.  A simple, scientifically based, and effective Detox Program.

We’ll be getting into more specifics as we document our personal 28 day detox, but, in the meantime, if you’d like more information about our Clear Change Program, give us a call today!

Be well.
