My Detoxification Program is complete. Where do I go from here? I am slowly starting to reintroduce foods and paying very close attention to how I react with them. I’m not sure I have any food “allergies”, but there are certainly some foods that my body has a real effort dealing with. Some of the symptoms I’m looking for: brain fog after a meal, sluggishness, “gurgling” stomach, changes in bowel movement (even slight changes), headaches or joint aches. These are the little things you might over-look and not realize it’s your food that’s causing these.
Our bodies are designed to take in food, break it down into its base nutrients, use those nutrients to nourish cells, and discard the rest. And it should do this pretty quickly. Daily bowel movements are a sign that your body is efficient at this breakdown process.
Now that I have completed this 21-Day Purification Process I can honestly say that it is one of the best things I have ever done for my health! If you’ve ever been on a “diet” then you know how crummy you usually feel. You’re denying yourself junk foods, but often people on “diets” deny themselves some really good nutrition too. I have never felt better than when I was on this plan! I ate tons of food and was NEVER hungry, I had increased energy from all the healthy fruits and veggies I was eating, and I could tell my body was functioning at its best by how I looked. I lost that “puffy” look and my skin looks younger.
Because of the education that is an integral part of this program, I am ready to say this is how I eat now. I am currently on vacation with my family. Hard to watch what you eat when you’re not in control of the meal plans, right? Not at all. We have been eating out a lot but it’s so simple to make better choices now. I splurged last night and had pizza, we visited my husband’s favorite pizza hangout from when he was a kid. I had a fantastic pizza loaded sausage, tons of fresh mushrooms, and onions. I wasn’t about to deny myself one of my favorite foods. But it was easy to limit myself to two small pieces, it really was! It was a smart decision and I know today I’ll be craving a salad for lunch to help balance that. Yes, CRAVING a salad. It happens. Who knew!
So, are you ready to go through this type of program to get your health back on track? I already know this Purification Program is one I will repeat yearly. It was so easy to do, and I absolutely love the way I feel. I wish I had been able to lose more weight, but 8 lbs in 21 days is still great! And I know I will continue to lose more at a steady pace now that I have made this my way of eating.
I cannot tell you how fantastic this program by Standard Process is, and how amazing it has been working with Dr. Ken D’Souza on this. I know he’s still there for me as I move forward and he is continuing to educate me and keep me focused. My turn to help you the way he has helped me! Thanks for following my journey. I gladly welcome your questions and feedback. And I will be happy to help you if you’re ready to go through this transformation too!
