Weight Loss and the Standard Process 21 Day Cleanse

Weight Loss and the Standard Process 21 Day Cleanse

After the Holidays we all want to start the New Year off right, by stepping into healthier habits and striving to be our best selves. We’ve all heard the saying “New Year, New You!” and that is what our Standard Process 21-day cleanse embodies.

Weight Loss is about nourishing your body in a way that promotes balance and gives you what you need to function optimally, while also allowing your body to shed excess adipose tissue that it may be holding onto. You need to provide your body with amino acids, antioxidants and proper nutrition to kick your body into fat burning mode. Your main focus should be on eating right by including a variety of foods that come in a rainbow of colors and eat frequently throughout the day to maintain a healthy blood sugar range. Another important factor is making sure we are hydrating our bodies properly and getting enough water to help cleanse the body and shed toxins. To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The result is the approximate number of water in ounces you should be consuming each day.

The 21 day Cleanse includes eating whole, organic, and unprocessed foods; taking a few recommended supplements with whole foods and other ingredients; and drinking plenty of water. You will eat a variety of vegetables and fruit for the first 10 days, with some proteins added on the 11th day. Keeping a daily intake journal is extremely helpful in tracking what you are putting into your body so that you and your healthcare team can better understand your habits and assist you in reaching your goals. We hope you enjoy the journey to feeling your best and look forward to helping you along the way with any questions you may have. Please contact us online or come into the shop where we would be happy to help!

Wishing You a Happy New Year!

Metagenics Clear Change 10-Day Metabolic Detox Program

The Clear Change 10-Day Program is designed to enhance the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process while providing adequate fuel for both cleansing and other daily activities—providing energy and support for overall wellbeing. Completing a 10-day metabolic detoxification program two to three times a year may be beneficial for some individuals.

Your body has its own detoxification process, which in the scientific and medical community is often referred to as biotransformation. There are three steps to this process: biotransformation, conjugation, and elimination. During the first stage, toxic molecules, which might come from the outside world or from metabolites of your own body processes, get molecularly transformed into a different molecule. Sometimes it becomes less toxic, but many times, it actually becomes more toxic! Luckily, the next step mollifies it into a less toxic molecule. In this phase, the molecule combines with another molecule to create something that the body can eliminate. The third step is elimination, which in some discussions on detox is excluded but is just as important as the other two steps. Once your body has transformed the toxic elements into a benign molecule, it must be excreted through your urine, feces, or sweat.

All of these processes occur whether you are on a metabolic detox regimen or not, but they often need help! Each phase requires certain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other nutrients. If you have more toxins, then you will need more of these nutrients to handle the increase in the processes while your body tries to remove them from your system. Good detox programs provide you with the food, nutrients, and herbs that support your body’s own natural detoxification system to ensure it works smoothly, in sync, and at the speed you need.

Detox and the Standard Process Detox Balance Program

Detoxing is something we have to do repeatedly over the years as we accumulate all types of things unintentionally in our everyday lives. A healthy reset helps support your body’s natural toxin elimination function and metabolic detoxification.

Toxins are everywhere you are exposed to toxins every single day. Our bodies even produce their own toxins called endogenous toxins just from normal bodily functions. Our bodies also encounter external or exogenous toxins and chemicals made outside of the body. We find them in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the things we touch. Over time being exposed to all of these toxins can cause an overload in the body and inhibit the natural ability our bodies have to detoxify themselves. Toxins can contribute to Fatigue, sleep issues, indigestion, weight gain, skin issues and joint discomfort.

The proper way to Detox is to follow a legitimate program that helps you get rid of toxins but doesn’t also flush out needed vitamins and minerals or destroy our gut microbiome. Metabolic detoxification is your body’s natural process of neutralizing and eliminating toxins from the body in three phases. Phase 1: Unlock, Phase 2: Neutralize and Phase 3: Eliminate. The Standard Process Detox Balance Program delivers nutrients that activate enzymes required for Phase 1 reactions. The program also supplies key nutrients and amino acids needed to support Phase 2 enzymes that enhance the water solubility of toxins. With the Detox Balance Program you are also provided with plant-based fiber and water which aid in toxin elimination. 

We look forward to supporting you in your detox journey!

How Weight Loss and Detox help Balance Hormones

Our Hormones play an integral role in the regulation of our appetite and weight. Many of us may not even realize that we have a hormonal imbalance that is causing us to experience difficulties in how our bodies function. Learn how certain hormones, such as insulin, leptin, ghrelin, cortisol, and estrogen, can influence your body weight and metabolism.

There are now 30 known gut hormones, neuropeptides and neurotransmitters that are now known to affect appetite. They are the key regulators in energy and glucose homeostasis and have been indicated as reasons why people tend to become obese or have a high recidivism rate after dieting. Unless we learn how our hormones are or aren’t properly functioning in our bodies we may never get to the root of what is causing weight gain or preventing weight loss.

Hormones are responsible for hunger, appetite, weight control, metabolism and weight distribution. A healthy and balanced diet is absolutely crucial in helping to naturally balance your hormones and optimize them for weight loss. Incorporating Protein-rich foods help stimulate satiety hormones and keeps you fuller longer, lessening the likelihood that you will over eat or want to snack after a meal.This is extremely important for weight control. If you don’t feel full after a meal you’re more likely to overeat and make poor nutrition choices. Eating foods that help balance hormones include the proper intake of cruciferous vegetables, healthy fats and plenty of fiber as well. Make sure you are getting plenty of exercise as well as getting enough sleep, both of which can have a massive effect on hormone balance. We are here for you and would love to answer any and all hormone related questions you may have in the future.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
