The New Year has arrived with all its shiny possibility and opportunity for change. Many of us are setting goals and resolutions. New gym memberships, new yoga pants, maybe your clothes and clutter have been removed from that treadmill or elliptical machine in the den. The physicians at Living Wellness Medical Center fully support your motivation for change. We know how difficult it can be to stick to healthy habits during the holiday season. One way to get eating habits back on track is to participate in a cleanse. Before you roll your eyes and click back to your Facebook feed, please know that we don’t mean that lemon juice cayenne pepper Master Cleanse. And we’re not talking about sucking down a bottle of olive oil to flush the liver either.
We would like to announce the start of Cleanse with the Docs, a 14-day physician-designed, physician-supervised cleanse to help reset the digestive system, help with weight loss goals, and kickstart healthy eating habits. Because we like to walk the walk in addition to talking the talk, the physicians at Living Wellness will be participating with you! (That’s why we’re calling it Cleanse With the Docs!)
The program is designed around a clean diet, free from the most common problematic foods. The cleanse diet is combined with a physician-quality protein powder, and an additional detox supplement. The protein powder contains the best vitamins and minerals on the market, as well as additional ingredients that support the detoxification pathways in the liver. The detox supplement has been designed by a naturopathic physician to include probiotics, fiber, and additional ingredients to support the liver. We think it’s an incredible program, and we can’t wait to experience it with you. Here are three reasons why we think you should participate:
Your Body Needs a Vacation
Our bodies are very well designed to eliminate toxins. This process can get sluggish with the amount of environmental exposures we receive on a daily basis. Whether it’s from our food, from the air we breathe, the fluids we drink, or the amount of stress we are exposed to on a daily basis. Doing a cleanse gives your body a break. It’s like unplugging your computer or WiFi router, or hitting the “refresh” button in your web browser.
Boost your Energy, Improve your Mood, and more!
Symptoms that we have found tend to improve after doing a cleanse include:
- Increased energy
- Improved mood
- Mental clarity and improved concentration
- Clearer skin and complexion
- Improved blood circulation
- Weight loss
- Improved digestion
- Allergy relief
- If any of the above sounds like you…consider joining us!
Improve your digestion
We support the idea that “you are what you eat,” and take it a step further to say “you are what you eat, digest, and absorb.” Participating in a cleanse can improve the entire digestive system. This includes the liver, the small and large intestine, the kidneys, and more. It can help support blood sugar regulation, bowel movement habits, and bacterial balance in the intestines. A large portion of our immune system activity starts in the gut. Although naturopathic physicians have been speaking for decades about the importance of gut health, modern research is starting to support this as well. Gut health is connected to mental health, hormonal balance, chronic disease, and so much more. Heal the gut and the body will follow!
