How Do You Determine if Purification is “Really Right for You?”

In order to assess whether a purification program will improve the quality of your life, it is important to determine your toxic load. Your toxic load is the amount of toxins that your body needs to process. By answering the following questions, you may gain some real insight as to your current toxic load.

  • Do you or have you eaten processed foods?

  • Do you eat non-organic vegetables & fruits?

  • Do you eat poultry & meat that are not free range?

  • Do you or have you ever used artificial sweeteners?

  • Do you drink soda?

  • Do the foods you eat have additives, dyes, or preservatives added?

  • Do you eat fast foods?

  • Do you eat out regularly?

  • Do you drink coffee or caffeinated drinks regularly?

  • Do you drink alcohol or consume drugs?

  • Do you drink unfiltered water?

If the majority of your answers are “yes”, then it is likely that your daily habits and your diet contribute drastically to your toxic load. Beyond diet, many external toxins, such as cologne, perfume, cleaning products, cosmetics, aerosol products and pollution, add to your load.

Why is purification important?

Toxins: They are present in all the foods we eat, the water we drink, and the air that we breathe. We are all exposed to external toxins every day, including pollutants, pesticides, and numerous chemicals. The EPA reports that the average American consumes four pounds of pesticides each year and has residues from over 400 toxic substances in their body. More than 3,000 chemical additives are found in the foods we eat.

The body was created to handle certain levels of toxicity. The concern is with excess intake and the excess production of toxins, and/or a reduction in the processes of elimination. Any one of these can create a state in which we accumulate toxins faster than we can eliminate them, and over time this can become overload on your body. The answer to all of this toxic exposure is Detox!

Purification, also known as detoxification, offers your body additional support to expel natural toxins and minimize your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.

A toxin may produce an immediate or rapid onset of symptoms or cause long-term, negative effects.

Some symptoms of toxicity include:

  • Headaches

  • Weight Gain

  • Allergies

  • Many Skin Problems

  • Fatigue or difficult sleeping

  • Food Cravings

  • Low Libido

  • Immune System Weakness

  • Digestive & other Gastrointestinal Problems

A purification program can have a major, positive effect on the biochemistry of your body while allowing natural toxins and byproducts of daily metabolism to be eliminated. By participating in a purification/ Detoxification program, you may notice the following:

  • Improved weight loss results

  • Increased energy and vitality

  • Clearer thinking

  • Better digestion

  • Less bloating after meals

  • Softer, healthier and glowing skin

  • Shinier hair

  • Better night’s sleep

  • Less allergic reactions

  • Quality and regularity of your bowel movements

A recently published research article in the September 2008 peer-reviewed Journal of Chiropractic Medicine discussed the clinical effectiveness of the Standard Process Purification Program. This streamlined program emphasizes whole, organic, and unprocessed foods; whole food supplements; and water.

The 21-day purification program is so effective because it focuses on the whole person-making better food and beverage choices, taking whole food supplements, reducing stress, and increasing exercise. The purification program is more than just a diet; it’s a life style change. It encourages patients to adopt a healthier lifestyle, which, in turn, helps them look and feel better too. It has been our experience at Oasis Chiropractic Center that our patients lose between 10-13 lbs. in a 21 day period. In addition, they feel better and function better at work, home and in there daily every day activities. The whole Oasis Chiropractic Center staff has done the Standard Process Purification Program at least once and Dr. Starkman does it twice a year.

Commonly Asked Questions about Detoxification for Weight Loss

What is detoxification?

Detoxification is merely the internal cleansing and purification of your body. Think of it as “spring cleaning” for your insides. Most people lose between 6-25lbs in the 21 day process.

How does this work?

This streamlined, easy-to-follow program emphasizes whole, organic, and unprocessed foods; whole food supplements; and water. Vegetables and fruit are eaten from days 1-10, with select proteins added at day 11. Whole food supplements taken during the program include: SP Cleanse®, SP Green Food™, SP Complete™, and Gastro-Fiber® or Whole Food Fiber. Other supplements such as Whey Pro Complete, a protein powder with 15 grams of protein per serving, can also be added to the protocol to support purification.

To assist the patient during purification, we provide an all-in-one purification guide that describes the program and offers features such as an FAQ section; a tear-off shopping list; program-friendly shake and salad accent recipes; a daily intake journal; and an area for you to recommend additional supplements.

Is it safe? How effective is it?

Detoxification is totally safe and effective because unlike other processes, it aids the body in a natural process rather than creating an artificial one.

What can I expect?

Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater feeling of well being. Some patients feel immediate relief for pain, edema, and swollen joints, where as patients feel relief after multiple treatments for arthritis, allergies, gout, lymphedema, headaches, neuralgia, and others.

Is it covered by insurance? How much does it cost?

Detoxification varies in cost depending upon the person being treated. Please contact us for more information.
