Standard Process Purification Program
Two times per year, in January and June, we lead a group of motivated individuals through a 21 day purification, or cleanse program. The products we use are from Standard Process, a whole food nutrition company that was founded by Royal Lee, a trailblazer in the field of nutrition, in 1929. We have been using their products for over 20 years and have an excellent understanding of their product line.
Purification, also known as detoxification, can help to remove toxins from your body and help to maintain a healthy weight. We are all exposed to toxins, from the foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and even through our body’s natural metabolic functions. Toxins can contribute to a wide range of symptoms, including digestive and other GI disorders, fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, lack of mental clarity, and low libido, to name a few.
The purification program is not a diet. It emphasizes supplements and whole foods, specifically organic vegetables and fruits. It restricts grains, sugar, and calorie dense highly processed and refined foods. Patients rarely experience hunger, and in fact most participants feel quite energetic after the first few days.
Patients who complete the cleanse have seen a significant positive effect on their bodies’ biochemistry, e.g. a significant decrease in cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Patients generally lose between 5 and 15 pounds, and experience increased energy, decreased food cravings and improved digestion. Most importantly, as they attend the three classes that are included in the price of the purification program, our patients learn new habits and a new way of shopping, cooking, and eating that will support long term positive changes.
The cleanse products and daily encouraging emails are available any time, however, patients who have participated as a group find that the added support helps make the cleanse more fun and successful.
Many of our patients choose to participate in the cleanse more than once, some once a year and others twice a year. It is a way to “reboot” and get back to a more healthful lifestyle. Please contact us if you would like more information about this valuable program.
I wanted to thank you for introducing me to the Standard Process Purification Program. As you know, I have actually run through the cleanse, three times now, and the process keeps getting easier.
The first time I was on the cleanse was the most difficult 21 days I have ever done and the most rewarding 21 days I have ever done. The process was made easier with the daily emails and meetings held at the office. Whenever I had a question, I received the answer right away, which was much appreciated. This was all new to me. The meetings enriched the process, as we shared ideas, anecdotes and recipes. The main reason for doing the cleanse, was to strengthen my system and I was rewarded by not only a clean system, but weight loss as well. My first go around helped me shed 10 pounds, and this enabled me to continue the healthy eating and I have now reached a weight loss of 45 pounds. This is really exciting and I continue to be selective in what I eat and also in the food preparation.
Thank you again, and know that I will see you at the next session in the summer. Keep up the good work.
