The Standard Process “Detox BalanceTM” Program

This is a 28-day program to a cleaner, brighter and happier version of yourself. It consists of diet improvements and smoothies made from plant-based whole food concentrates.

I’ve been recommending this program to my patients for over a decade. Consistently, the Detox Balance program results in:

  • Better energy
  • Better sleep
  • Better digestion
  • Improved mental clarity

Often there are many other benefits, such as improved libido, improved skin, weight loss, etc.

What’s Included?

(Available in a 10-Day or 28-Day version)

  • 10 Day or 28 day supply of shake mix.
  • Book. This is an exceptionally-well done instruction manual with details of how to do the program, solutions to any problems, recipes,
  • Shaker Bottle (included only with 28-day version).
  • Support from Alternative Health Atlanta. You have the experience and knowledge of our clinic behind you on your detox adventure!

FAQs

  • Are the shakes meal replacements?
    • No, you eat clean, healthy meals in addition to the shakes. The shakes do make good snacks, however
  • Will I feel toxic, headachy, or fatigued as my body detoxes?
    • Minor fatigue and a bit of fogginess is common for a few days, but typically nothing that would affect your work.
  • Will I have frequent or loose bowel movements or need to urinate more frequently?
    • Generally, there will be little change in your elimination.
  • Do I have to eat a specific diet? Vegan, Keto, Paleo, etc.?
    • You’ll eat fresh foods and avoid processed (boxed, canned) foods. You’ll avoid most caffeine, alcohol, artificial sweeteners and junk or fast foods. If you are vegetarian, that’s fine. If not, you will continue to eat animal proteins.
  • How soon would I expect to start seeing improvements from this program?
    • This can vary a lot. If you do a good job doing the detox, it’s common to start feeling better in two to three weeks, sometimes sooner.
  • Will I lose weight on this detox?
    • This is not designed as a weight-loss program. That said, the majority of people report losing weight, often those who were “stuck” and couldn’t lose weight previously.
  • How long do I do the detox?
    • The program is designed for 28 days. However, there is a 10-day version of it as well.

Toxins are everywhere

In the past 50 years, more than 100,000 toxic chemicals, including heavy metals and pesticides, have been introduced into the environment — into the air we breathe, food that we eat, and water that we drink. Toxins can accumulate and damage critical internal body systems, so it’s no wonder that the incidence of toxicity-related afflictions (such as cancer, arthritis, allergies, obesity, skin conditions and cardiovascular disease) is also on the rise. In addition, a wide variety of symptoms, such as headache, fatigue, pain, cough, gastrointestinal problems and more can all be related to toxicity.

How does the body detoxify normally?

A healthy body has many systems in place to remove toxins. Water-soluble toxins can be filtered and removed by the kidneys, the intestinal tract, and through sweat and breath.

Fat-soluble toxins must first be made water-soluble, which occurs in the liver.

There are three phases of detoxification of fat-soluble toxins:

Phase I: Large toxins are broken down into smaller pieces by a group of enzymes known as the cytochrome P-450 family. In some cases, these smaller compounds can still possess some toxicity if allowed to build up, and that’s where Phase II comes in. 

Phase II: The byproducts of Phase I and other remaining toxins are effectively neutralized and made water-soluble so they can be excreted from the body. This process is known as “conjugation.” Once toxins are made water-soluble, they can be eliminated through our urine, bile, sweat and breath!

Phase III – In addition to Phase I and Phase II detoxification, liver detoxification involves a third phase which takes care of the final elimination of toxins. This involves direct excretion into bile; and is called the Phase III detoxification (T.Ishikawa, Trends Biochem.Sci., 17, 1992).

Support your body’s natural detoxification

By participating in a detoxification program, we can actively assist and support the body in its own natural cleansing actions and help it to eliminate toxic substances. A functional detox program helps to strengthen all of the organs involved in detoxification, including the liver, lungs, kidneys, skin, and lymphatic system. Among the valuable benefits of a successful detoxification program are:

  • Increased energy
  • Clearer skin
  • Stronger immune system
  • Greater mental clarity
  • Improved digestion
  • Weight loss (if desired)

A Detoxification program to start the year strong Perque Detox Kit

  • Drink plenty of water. One of the keys to eliminating water-soluble toxins and toxic metabolites is having plenty of water available. Water helps dilute waste products and carry them out of the body. Drinking pure water all day is recommended. Freshly squeezed lemon or lime is a simple alkalinizing addition.
  • Another way to move toxins out of the body is to increase blood flow through movement and exercise. Regular exercise will also improve overall health.
  • Choose the PERQUE Detox Kit, a safer, natural, multi-system detoxification program that takes advantage of the synergy of 4 products:

PERQUE Detox IN Guard™ contains a unique blend of sulfur amino acids, lipotropic factors and minerals that support all the body’s detoxification pathways (Phases I, II and III). The potent nutritional detoxifiers like methionine, glycine, cysteine and glutathione also boost neuroimmune and cardiovascular health. Choline and inositol improve cell communication and increase the cell’s defenses.

PERQUE Liva Guard Forté™ is a liver-protecting formula that combines five carotenoids, pure silymarin (milk thistle), vitamin E, CoQ10, methionine and glutathione to deliver unique synergistic benefits. This unique formulation helps protect liver cells from damage and facilitates the liver’s role as the body’s main detoxifying organ.

PERQUE Potent C Guard™ buffered l-ascorbate powder helps strengthen, repair and energize the immune system while mobilizing and removing harmful toxins from the body.

The healing effects of vitamin C are widely known. The vitamin C portion of this program can fill the deficits we all have and put the healing potential back into our bodies so we can rebuild and revitalize tired and stressed organs and tissues.

The scientific literature has confirmed vitamin C’s key role in

  1. Immune system function
  2. Collagen repair and formation
  3. Joint function
  4. Energy production
  5. Antioxidant protection and function
  6. Detoxification
  7. Protects delicate endothelial cells that line blood vessels from free radical and toxin damage and so much more.

PERQUE Potent C Guard™ enhances hormone production and function as needed and helps the body adapt better. In addition, it is important to take the amount of ascorbate needed to keep an adequate supply in the cells. This varies based on levels of distress, toxins, acute and delayed allergy reactions, and cell buffering/ alkaline reserve. Optimum ascorbate use is based on calibration of need (see ascorbate calibration instructions) or as directed by your health professional.**

PERQUE EPA/DHA Guard™ contains Omega 3 fatty acids, which are extremely helpful in improving antioxidant absorption, dissolving fat soluble toxins and repairing cell membrane fluidity.


Your Revitalization Plan

Using the Detox Kit with your Diet

Rebuild and Revitalize by feeding the body what it needs to naturally obtain the potent medicine found in the right foods. These next 30 days will find our meals full of green leafy veggies, salads, roasted vegetables a full 4-6 servings a day. You can have any lean protein that you want, chicken, turkey, salmon, and other wild-caught seafood. Protein is essential for rebuilding muscle and tissue and helping the body recover from injury or illness. Protein is important in hair and nail growth.

Choose the right foods. Remove toxic substances such as caffeine and alcohol, eliminate processed foods, and limit intake of sugars and saturated fats. This will help your body detox naturally.

Specifically, you will want to avoid the following foods:

Sugar: 

Avoid refined sugar, including sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, and dextrose-containing products. Also, avoid artificial sweeteners. (Monk fruit and stevia are healthy options.) Fresh fruit and fruit juices are preferred.

Processed Foods: 
  • Instead of snacking on chips, candy, and cookies, choose nuts and seeds as a healthier option. Alkalinizing suggestions include sunflower seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, and cashews.
  • Avoid refined flour products such as doughnuts, cakes, cookies, white rice, and pasta. Wheat and other gluten-containing grains should be minimized. Grasses like quinoa, amaranth, and brown rice are healthier options.
  • Avoid fast food and processed foods.
Red Meat and Dairy Products: 

Conventional red meat can add to the toxic load. Better protein sources include grass fed beef, chicken, turkey, fish, beans, and legumes. Milk, butter, and other dairy products should be kept to a minimum or eliminated. For many people, cow dairy is difficult to digest and can impede the process of detoxification.

Caffeine: 

Coffee, both regular and decaffeinated, black teas, sodas and other drinks containing caffeine should be avoided. Green tea, ginger tea, and herbal teas are better substitutes.

Alcohol:

Avoid all types of alcohol and recreational drugs. This will give your mind and body a rest from harmful toxins.

High Amounts of conventional Table Salt: 

Sea salt is a healthier option.

In addition to avoiding toxic and processed foods, you will also want to avoid immune-sensitive foods and substances, to help reduce inflammation and enhance repair. Please keep in mind your food sensitivities and avoid these.

Determine how much Vitamin C is best for you, using the C-Calibration Protocol. As the central antioxidant molecule responsible for regeneration, recycling, and cell detox, the amount of ascorbate needed by any given individual varies more widely than that of any other essential nutrient. The C-Calibration protocol makes it possible for you to determine how much ascorbate you need, at any given point, in order to stimulate repair and respond to oxidative stress. We will help you determine your own unique need for vitamin C on this program.

Take a salt and soda bath. We recommend a salt and soda bath 1-2 times per week to help you relax and to enhance the detoxification process. Combine a half cup of Epsom salts with a half cub of baking soda in a very warm bath (You may also choose to add lavender or other relaxing essential oils.) Soak for at least 20 minutes. While soaking, practice deep breathing and let the warm water take all your stress away. Since Epsom salt is another name for magnesium sulfate, this bath will help remove toxins from your body, and if done regularly, can also help to boost magnesium levels. Healthy magnesium levels support healthy serotonin levels – essential for improved mood.

This program is 30 days long and will gently supply your body with much-needed nutrient levels that will put back into you what has been burned out over the last year. You will find a sense of wellbeing and a much-needed element of self-care in the special program you will embark upon this next month.

Stress Busting Tips to Stay Healthy

Stress Busting Tips to Stay Healthy

STRESS can be a big factor in whether a person gets sick or not. Recognize this, and do something about it before you’re confronted with a combo one-two punch of having major stress in your life PLUS being sick! Here are some very tried-and-true stress lowering strategies:

  1. Avoid stressful people. Minimize contact and communication with these people. If the stressful person is a required part of your life (family member, boss, etc.) keep good, but minimal communication in place. Cutting off all communication with these people will often cause greater stress. When you do talk to them, avoid any confrontation and talk about pleasant or mundane subjects. Remember: if you fight with these people, YOU lose automatically because you’ll be stressed out!
  2. Avoid reading the newspaper, watching the news on TV or listening to it on the radio. Does this sound extreme? If so, do an experiment. Stop the news for one week. Then resume normal news consumption the following week. Compare how you felt on week 1 with how you felt on week 2. Decide whether or not you want to stop your exposure to the news.
  3. Take walks around your neighborhood or near where you work as often as possible. Walk until you feel alive and refreshed and are interested in the world again.
  4. Minimize non-prescription drugs as much as possible. Drugs work by “insulating” you to a degree from the real world. This can result in what appears to be stress-reduction, but as you come off the drug the stress will be much greater than if you hadn’t taken the drug in the first place. Net effect: MORE stress. The less drugs you can take (alcohol, pain killers, sleep medications, etc.) the less overall stress you’ll experience even though it may appear otherwise. There are exceptions, of course, such as severe acute problems. But this is true for most situations where a person would use typical over-the-counter or recreational medications.
  5. Sleep is critical to help the body handle stress. If you can sleep, DO IT! Make the time to go to bed at a decent hour so you get enough sleep. The more stress you’re under the more sleep you need.
  6. “Exercise” is probably the wrong description for using the physical motion of your body to handle stress. A better word would be MOTION. Your body really likes motion, and is stressed by a lack of motion. You don’t have to raise your heart rate to a certain point, sweat or have sore muscles. In fact, unless you’re already doing a strenuous exercise program it’s not necessarily a good thing to start one if you’re under a lot of stress. Instead, park farther away and walk. Take the stairs. Clean out your closets. DO something physical that makes you happy, but also gets your body moving. Do this frequently, daily if at all possible.
  7. TALK! Communication is very therapeutic. Make a list of people you enjoy talking to but haven’t heard from in a long time. Call them up. Increase the frequency that you chat with friends. Meet people and talk some more.

3 Tests Tell You How Long You Will Live

3 Tests Tell You How Long You Will Live

3 Tests Tell You How Long You Will Live

Most people have a desire to live life to the fullest with a combination of quantity and quality.

There are many parameters that may determine how long you live, however,this short article presents the findings of five researchers who identified three simple tests you can do at home to measure your ability to add years to your life.

The medical paper published in the British Medical Journal in 2014 revealed a 13 year study where they took 1,355 men and 1,411 women in 1999 when they were 53 years old and then checked to see who was alive and well 13 years later in 2012.

The following are the three tests that were evaluated:

  1. Standing on one leg with your eyes closed for 10 seconds or longer
  2. Having a strong grip
  3. Being able to stand up and sit back down in a chair many times in a minute.

According to the researchers of this paper, these tests clearly represented tell-tale signs of longevity.

Perform well in all three tests at age 53 or so and you should be healthy and vibrant 13 years later, when you are 66.

Less Stress = Longer Life

READ: Solve Stress Backwards

Researchers from University College London estimate that a 53 year old who can complete these tests successfully is up to 5 times more likely to be alive and well at 66 than someone who couldn’t complete the tests or who did them poorly.

There were far higher death rates among those who failed to complete the tasks.

Officially the tests are called:

The Chair Test (Standing up and sitting down in a chair 39 times in a minute for a man, and 36 times for a woman)

The balance test (standing on one leg for 10 seconds or longer with eyes closed)

The grip test (ability to apply a pressure of up to 54.5 kg or 120 pounds)
