Detox & Cleanse FAQ

Q: What are the benefits of this purification?
A: A purification program can have a significant, positive effect on the biochemistry of the body while allowing natural toxins and byproducts of daily metabolism to be eliminated. You may notice the following:
Improved weight management results
Increased energy/vitality
Better digestion
Less bloating
Clearer thinking
Clearer skin

Q: How is this purification different than other cleanses?
A: This purification program is unique in that it stimulates specific detoxification organs in your body- the liver, kidneys, and intestines. By using whole food supplements to nourish and support your body’s natural detox pathways, your toxic load will decrease and your body will be able to concentrate its energy on purification and weight reduction. This cleanse is set apart from the others in that will not only transform your life and the way you feel from the inside out in 3 weeks, but open your eyes to healthier habits and a new way of thinking that will last a life time.

Q: Will this purification program help me lose weight?
A: You can achieve weight loss by eliminating high-calorie, refined, nutrient-poor foods. The ideal weight management system is not a quick fix- instead, it is a long-term commitment. You will need to make lifestyle changes that will continue long after the purification process has been completed. By following the Standard Process Purification program, you will be working towards sustained, long-term weight management. If more aggressive weight loss is desired, ask Ana for a more individualized plan to help you meet these goals.

Q: What do I do when I have to travel?
A: Here are some tips to help you stay on track:
Plan our strategy before you leave home.
When choosing a restaurant, select one that serves foods that are on the recommended list. This will curb temptation.
When traveling, pack a cooler of foods, including fresh fruit and sliced raw vegetables- and don’t forget the water bottles!
When attending a social gathering, bring a dash to pass that you know would be acceptable, like a fruit/veggie tray or chicken kabobs
For added convenience, SP Complete and Whey Pro Complete are available in single serving packets. Ask Ana or her office for more details.
On the go shakes can be easily made with a bottle of cold water, ½ a banana, and some fresh berries shaken for 2 minutes in a travel sports bottle.

Q: What kind of changes can I expect?
A: Two of the main effects will be an increase in urination and bowel movements.
This is a natural effect of purifying and should not interfere with your daily activities. In rare cases, you may experience a throbbing sensation in the head, general aches, itchy skin, rashes, or fatigue. These are normal occurrences and
will subside in a day or two. Please don’t hesitate to call our office if you have
questions about how you are feeling or what you are experiencing.
