Purification is merely the internal cleansing and detoxification of your body. Think of it as “spring cleaning” for your insides. Our 21 day purification program offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.
Why do I need purification?
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.
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?
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 this 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†
How is purification different than any other diet?
The Standard Process Purification Program is not a diet. It is a program that helps you live a healthier life by purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy body and weight.
Our program emphasizes supplements and whole foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, while limiting high-calorie, refined foods and saturated fats. Nourishing yourself with nutrient-rich foods will provide the complex combination of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are needed to protect the body and promote optimal health.
WHY THE PURIFICATION AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT JUMSTART PROGRAM?
Hippocrates once said, “The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” Ignite the healing force. The DREAM Wellness Purification and Weight Management Jumpstart Program will support you towards your goal of vital health.
What is purification? Purification (also known as detoxification or cleansing) is the process of addressing the natural toxins in the body. The liver, digestive tract, kidneys, bladder, lymphatic system, lungs, and skin are the major organ systems that are involved in the neutralization and elimination of toxins.
Because we are exposed to high levels of foreign substances and over-consume chemically-treated, synthetically-produced food, extra purification is needed. This purification program utilizes whole food supplements, pure food, and water to give the body the resources it needs so that it can purify and rebuild itself naturally. This program places an emphasis on the liver and colon because these two organs play a major role in supporting the digestive system and detoxification. This helps you to achieve a higher level of health by cleansing the body from the inside out.
As a society, we face increasing amounts of challenges in our environment. We encounter substances every day from the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink, including: medications, pesticides, heavy metals, fumes, synthetic materials, cigarette smoke, caffeine, preservatives, and much more. In addition to these environmental challenges, our bodies produce waste by-products as a result of normal metabolism (such as ammonia, carbon dioxide and free radicals) that need to be eliminated. If these toxins are not neutralized and eliminated, the result is sub-optimal health.
You may be asking if you have toxins in your body. If you don’t have 2-3 bowel movements per day, every day, you are not eliminating toxins. Think for a moment of all the foods and drinks you have consumed over your lifetime. The amount could literally add up to tens of thousands of pounds. Our bodies eliminate much of the food, but what about the additives, preservatives, dyes, etc.?
Take a simple test: Do you or have you eaten processed foods? Do you eat non-organic fruits and vegetables? Do you eat meat and poultry that is not free-range? Do you consume genetically-altered food? Do you or have you ever used artificial sweeteners? Do you drink soda? Do the foods you eat have preservatives, additives, dyes or sweeteners added? Do you or have you ever consumed margarine or partially hydrogenated fats? Do you eat fast foods and/or eat out regularly? Do you fry, charbroil or grill foods? Do you drink coffee regularly? Do you drink alcohol? Do you drink tap water?
If a majority of your answers are yes, then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load. In addition to your diet, you are also exposed to other irritants such as cigarette smoke, pollution, hair dyes, hair spray, dry cleaning chemicals, cosmetics, exhaust fumes, soaps, perfumes, cleaners and drugs. This everyday exposure to these substances may have you feeling less than your best, experiencing: weight gain, fatigue or difficulty sleeping, headaches, poor digestion, food cravings, reduced mental clarity, low libido.
Weight loss is accomplished by supporting liver function. Healthy liver function supports the body in burning fat for energy. The nutrients and dietary recommendations in this Purification and Weight Loss Jumpstart Program revolve around feeding the body the nutrients it needs to support optimal liver function. In addition to its role in fat burning, the liver also helps regulate blood sugar. The liver converts any sugars that are not required for immediate energy needs into glycogen and fat. Glycogen is stored both in the liver and the muscle tissue. The fat is deposited into undesirable areas. So we want to support the liver in its ability to utilize and regulate blood sugar and fats.
As you embark on this Purification and Weight Management Jumpstart Program within a few days you will generally feel increased energy, better digestion, less bloating, clearer skin, shinier hair, increase in the quantity of bowel movements, and the disappearance or lessening of past conditions (PMS, digestive problems, headaches, etc.).
Upon completion of the recommended program, you will have a different mindset about food, your body and your health. You may experience some or all of the following: Increased energy/vitality, improved overall health, weight reduction, improved digestion, improved physical appearance, removal of food addictions, clearer thinking and improved elimination.
The Purification and Weight Management Jumpstart Program lasts for 3 weeks. During this time you will be taking specific nutrients (some in a shake) and eating a cleansing diet. Light exercise such as walking and strength training is recommended. We provide weekly support, on a regular basis, in a class where all who are participating are welcome, and encouraged to attend. There we will help with recipe ideas, teach more about the importance of detoxification, give general support and answer any questions you may have related to what you are experiencing during this program.
