Are you interested in completing a Liver Detox protocol?
Is terrified a better description of your sentiment? 😀
Usually the word “DETOX” makes me cringe as most people don’t complete a detox protocol knowing what they are doing or even exactly what they’re putting in their bodies and often can actually do more harm than good.
Sooooooo I decided to help guide you all (and myself) through a healthful, nutrient dense, researched and effective 10 Day Detox that will help restore metabolic processes that have been hijacked by our busy lives, environmental exposures and garbage food!
This will be an online private group that is FREE to participate in since it’s my first launch of the program. You will only have to buy some supplements to help in the process that support all the phases of liver detoxification. In the future the course will cost $275 as I have put weeks…more like MONTHS… of time investing towards creating recipes and protocols for this program. I will also be spending lots of time each day during the detox to support you and will be doing Facebook Lives, handing over tons of recipes and food ideas, creating an open forum to discuss how everyone is doing AND OF COURSE doing it right along side you.
So invest some time and money into your health and get the year started off on the right foot! The course starts January 17th but you must complete the intake paperwork and purchase the supplement prior to the start date to be included in the free online support group and to receive my targeted dietary protocol that compliments the supplement interventions.
Your liver has a dual role. It is both the main organ for detoxing (which your body is naturally doing all the time) as well as a digestive organ. These days many, many people have over burdened livers that are “speaking” to them and crying out for help!
Ten signs your liver is telling you it needs help:
pain or discomf“ort over the liver – (right upper abdominal area under the rib cage)
excessive abdominal fat; pot belly; or a roll around the upper abdomen
trouble digesting fatty foods
had your gallbladder removed
dark spots on the skin commonly referred to liver spots
overheating of the body & excessive perspiration
acne/rosacea or itchy, blotchy skin
unexplained weight gain and inability
to lose weight even with calorie restriction
Whether you’re a fitness guru and nutrition nut or just coming off a decade long love affair with TV dinners and freezer burritos a 10 Day Detox is for you.
Eating fresh, in season, whole foods is good..great even! But take a look above and realize that with the burden of work we give our liver on a daily basis it just isn’t enough to keep that work horse chugging along without a boost every once in awhile! The supplement shake that I’m recommending as part of the Detox Protocol contains all the nutrient co-factors for liver detoxification, in highly bioavailable forms. It even contains herbs like milk thistle that support healthy liver processes and targeted amino acids to help in removing the toxins from the body after they’ve been drawn out.
The diet, which is 10 days from start to finish, focuses on SLOWLY removing certain foods and additives from daily consumption. By Day 4 we are consuming mainly a plant based diet rich with nutrient dense foods (you have LOTS of options in here and can pick foods, recipes, etc that you enjoy…you won’t starve I promise!). Then towards the end we start adding in foods. It’s a gentle intro and exit!
“Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of chemical compounds are released into the environment. Although the body is designed to naturally process and excrete these elements, an abundance of environmental agents combined with poor diet and nutrition can lead to an overburdened system. Metabolic detoxification helps by providing advanced, targeted nutrition to support the elimination of unwanted chemicals from your system.
While other detox approaches, such as trendy fad diets or juice cleanses, actually deprives your body of essential nutrients and can leave you even more vulnerable to environmental risk factors, the Clear Change program offers the targeted nutritional support that is necessary for metabolic detoxification—leaving you refreshed, energized, and feeling your best.” -Metagenics
Using my online dispensary you can purchase the 10 Day Detox supplement (not available in stores as this is a medical grade supplement company with the highest standards of quality). If you know me at all you know I am not a huge fan of supplements! My goal is always to get the nutrients we need from food and I work hard with my clients to create targeted plans that include functional foods to address their health concerns. HOWEVER…this one of those times where you’ve just gotta suck it buttercup and do the drink. The shake doesn’t taste bad (just is a little gritty) and you can choose from 3 flavors. The cost for the drink mix, a shaker bottle and supportive supplement is $120. I like the Chai…
You also will need to buy some Detox Tea which you can get locally in your grocery store or on Fullscript. If you are concerned about “Detox” or “Die Off Symptoms” you are not alone! Even though I eat a mainly whole foods diet and try to keep fit I sometimes get a little achy the first few days as my liver is working hard to suck out toxins that have built up. For this you can buy some Buffered Vitamin C or SpectraFiber both of which will act like little mops to absorb some of the gunk and junk we break loose in the detoxification process.
Finally, there are few criteria that may exclude you from a liver detox protocol such as this. Because we are essentially pushing fast forward on liver detoxification it has the potential to increase clearing time for certain medications. In order to participate in the cleanse you must sign a consent form and provide a little bit of information (all forms are HIPAA compliant so you’re privacy is completely protected) so that I can make sure the process will be safe and effective for you!
Buy your supplement, tea and any binders that you may want on Fullscript. Once you register go to “Dispensary Categories” and pick “Detox” to find all the supplements we’ve talked about.
Like my facebook page so I can add you to the online support group. From there I’ll add you to the private FB group which is where you’re going to get your handout with all the recipes and dietary recommendations. It’s a great place to ask questions and find support from others as well! I’ll be posting videos on everything from pantry staple items you’ll want to have on hand to quirky little cheats and ideas for surviving the detox during the dieting phase. On the FB group there are also more videos about the diet and supplement if you’re interested.
