An article published in the September 2008 peer-reviewed Journal of Chiropractic Medicine discussed the clinical effectiveness of the Standard Process Purification Program. The results from 28 chiropractic patients strengthened the theory that a calorie-restricted whole food diet along with supporting nutritional supplements, administered under the guidance of a trained health care professional, can support healthy serum lipids and weight. With this in mind, you can promote the effectiveness of the purification program, especially this time of year when many patients become concerned with their weight and overall health.
Purification, also known as detoxification, can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight so your body can function at 100%. We are exposed to chemicals which are 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.
Detox the Skin: The skin is your largest organ and accounts for one quarter of your body`s detoxification process. Everything you put on your body, you put in your body. Give your skin a break by refraining from using those scented lotions and instead treat your skin to some spa-like care at home. Use a dry brush to remove dead skin cells and stimulate your lymphatic system before you shower or bathe. Dry-brushing even removes cellulite and tightens the skin. After you have dry-brushed your skin, take a bath with essential oils such as lavender or tea tree oil to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. Have you ever thought about using metal free deodorant which has been linked to breast cancer.
Eat Vegan: Embraced as a detox or a new way of eating, raw cuisine can be a palatable delight beyond carrots and celery sticks. This delicious vegan diet includes fresh fruits and vegetables, seeds, sprouts, grains, nuts, beans, and seaweed. I was a vegetarian for years and I loved it.
Raw foods and juices deliver live enzymes and pure, powerful nutrients straight to your system. Live enzymes, which are killed when we cook or even steam food, optimize our metabolism, aiding digestion and flushing out toxins. Antioxidant enzymes act as a biodefense, ridding our body of the cellular by-products of free radicals, which can lead to cancer. Raw food advocates such as Woody Harrelson swear by raw foods as a way of life- touting more energy, clearer skin and a clearer mind.
Practice Yoga: Yoga puts your body into fat-burning mode by lowering the levels of stress hormones and increasing insulin sensitivity. When you breathe deeply during the various poses, you process oxygen efficiently, burn fat and speed up your metabolism. Yoga aids your body in removing harmful toxins, increasing energy, and losing weight. Many types of yoga are out there, so start light at first.
Limit Consumption of Caffeine, Sugar, Animal Products and Gluten for 21 days: Many pastas are gluten free and you can loose weight since that gluten thats in bread is not sticking to your gastrointestinal tract and your digestive system is fully functional.
Purification offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality. This is essential in which I see many patients that are absorbing many toxins that are making them sick. Toxins can contribute to stuffy head, poor digestion, low sex drive, weight gain with food cravings, low mental clarity, bad body odor, bad skin, and so on.... Here at La Starza Wellness we have seen many people helped with whole food nutritional support to help you reach your health goals.
