When Mike and I first got married, we made it one of our goals to detox at least once a year.
After a lot of research, we decided to use a company called Standard Process. Standard Process is a whole food supplement company that offers a purification process using their whole food supplements and strict and short food list that you can eat while on the detox. It is a 21 day process and is AMAZING!
We did the Standard Process Detox last July and saw some amazing results. Mike lost over 20lbs in 3 weeks (I only lost about 5lbs, go figure!) but we both felt amazing, and we saw huge improvements in Mike's RA while on the detox and after we were done.
We are going to start the program again starting next Monday. I will be sharing our journey and some recipes that fit in with the program as we go along.
Standard Process is only offered by Medical Professionals. If you are interested in learning more about their products, click here!
Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. We are exposed to external toxins everyday, including pollutants, pesticides, and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.
Toxins can contribute to a wide range of conditions:
- Stuffy head
- Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
- Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Reduced mental clarity
- Low libido
What are the benefits of purification?
A purification program can have a significant, positive effect on the biochemistry of the body while allowing natural toxins and byproducts of daily metabolism to be eliminated. By participating in a purification program, you may notice the following:
- Improved weight management results
- Increased energy/vitality
- Better digestion
- Less bloating
- Clearer skin
- Shinier hair
- Better sleep
- Clearer thinking
- Disappearance or lessening of past conditions
I should note that detox programs are not recommended if you are pregnant, nursing or if your doctor has advised you otherwise.
