One of the services I offer in my practice is the 10 Day Detox/Cleanse. I fully plan to fill you in on what my program has to offer, but before that let’s take a quick look at the ins and outs of this whole phenomenon.
It seems these days that we hear quite a bit about “detoxing” and “cleansing”. Chances are that anyone reading this right now knows someone who is doing one or just completed one or is planning to do one. The first thing I would like to address here is the difference between a detox and a cleanse. They are not exactly the same. I could ramble on for pages about the clinical descriptions of the two, but that can get a bit confusing for the reader as well as me. Since I am a big picture kind of guy, here is a big picture kind of description.
A cleanse is aimed at doing a vigorous and thorough spring cleaning of your gut. It’s focus is to clean out all of the debris that has trapped itself along your digestive tract i.e. your small and large intestines, which therefore disrupt the abilities of the healthy bacteria colonies within your gut.
A detox is aimed at actually detoxifying your body. This means allowing your liver to properly and effectively remove toxins that have built up in your system, such as toxins from foods(pesticides, herbicides, hormones, ammonia, steroids etc.), the environment(the nasty stuff we breathe in on a daily basis), heavy metals(mercury, aluminum, lead etc.) and so on.
The nice thing about my program is that you achieve both of these things during the 10 days.
Who needs a detox?
It’s my professional opinion that anyone who has never done a detox most likely could use one. However, if you are skeptical, here are just a few symptoms that may indicate that you are in need of a detox/cleanse.
- Feeling tired and having a lack of energy
- Feeling bloated and gain weight easily
- Digestive problems, frequent upset stomach
- Trouble sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sore muscles for no apparent reason
- Easily get sick
What to expect during my 10 Day Detox/Cleanse
You will be detoxing as well as cleansing during your 10 days. In fact I personally don’t see the purpose of doing any kind of cleanse if you don’t plan to get your body properly detoxifying as well, otherwise in a short period of time we are right back to where we started. I use Metagenics products for the Detox part of your program, specifically Ultraclear Renew Medical Food as well as Advaclear. I use Metagenics because I fully believe in their efforts to produce clean and natural supplements and medical foods. For more info on Metagenics click here.
The cleanse portion is accomplished by following a very specific diet during the 10 days. The great thing about my program is that you do get to eat. This is how we cleanse. You will be eating whole, nutritious, clean foods. What makes my program unique to so many others is that you will get unlimited email support, a one time optional 15 minute phone consultation to get you prepared, and many healthy and simple recipes to get you through the 10 days. Still skeptical? I like to look at it like this: Life is a very long time. 10 days is just a blip on the screen. It’s over before you know it, and you are better off as a result.
