The new season is full of the promise of fresh fruits, vegetables, barbecue, and salads. Hopefully, a lot of salads. Detoxing is a way to be out with the old and in with the new.

The 10 Day Detox is a Jump-Start
The 10-day detox is a periodic reboot for those who are already practicing good, healthy habits. Habits like drinking plenty of filtered water, exercising regularly, managing stress, and eating a God-made based diet. A diet of whole foods, heavy on plants, moderate on protein, and light on carbohydrates with a healthy dose of good fats. For everyone else, it’s a jump-start. We also offer a 28-day detox for those who need a longer program, a slower detox, more support, less healthy habits, or have more severe health conditions.
This program uses a product and supplements that enable the body to detox safely and slowly to avoid the headaches, nausea, and gut disturbances of most other detox programs. That doesn’t mean that you are not eating food. There are plenty of food choices to accompany the medical food. You will find that list of foods and recipes in the guidebook.
The first step is the Questionnaire which you can find here
If you have a score <50, the 10 Day Detox may be adequate for you.
If you have a score >50, the 28 Day Detox would be more appropriate.
This is the most important step. Come in for a consult. We need to review the conditions you have, the medication you are on, your family history and the safety of going on a detox as well as to pick one that is specifically for you. It would be negligent on my part and not wise on your part to proceed with a detoxification program without being supervised by a trained physician. Don’t skip this step!
This program uses medical foods for optimal results and safety. Unlike dietary supplements, the law stipulates that medical foods be used under the ongoing supervision of a healthcare practitioner. This is because patients who use medical foods typically have health conditions that require medical oversight to ensure that the right amount is administered and adjusted as needed.
Next, gather your supplies:
Then, set your self up powerfully and prepare
One week before the detox remove all caffeine and alcohol from your diet. Take two weeks if you feel you need to do this gradually. This will rule out withdrawal if you get any symptoms of detoxing too quickly. You can always slow the program down if it makes you feel poorly. Consult with your trained physician immediately if this occurs.
Make sure you have stocked your house with all the foods available to you from the list in the guidebook.
Prepare meals ahead of time like the soups or chili found in the guidebook.
And finally, Just Do It!
Follow the program guide so you know what to eat on which days.
Take your supplements and medical food.
Drink plenty of water, preferably filtered.
When the program is over retake the questionnaire and share the results with me. If you are still struggling with symptoms, allow me to help.
Welcome to spring and happy detoxing!
