DAY FIVE

Welcome to Day 5 of the Purification Program.

Just a friendly reminder: corn is not a vegetable, it is a grain and there are no grains allowed on this program.

Also, remember that although something may be healthy (such as beans and nuts), it may not be allowed during the purification program due to other factors (such as potential food allergens).  So, with this in mind, remember: no beans or nuts of any kind.

How Should I Feel Today?

You should be feeling more energetic today and the cravings should continue decreasing.  Many have expressed that they have not only learned to ‘tolerate’ the shakes, but have even come to enjoy them.  Yes, yes, it’s true!

We mentioned yesterday that your sleep should be improving.  You should find that you are able to fall asleep easier, enjoy more restful sleep, and are able to sleep through the night more often.  The good news is that this should continue throughout the purification program and beyond (as long as you maintain some of your newly forming good habits).

Weight Loss

If you haven’t started exercising yet during this program, now is an excellent time to use some of your returning energy and start.  Remember, exercise is an essential part of losing weight during this program.

Reminders

Don’t wait to get hungry.  Waiting increases cravings, lowers your blood sugar level and can lead to fatigue.  Try to have your SP Complete Shake with your Whey Protein first thing in the morning and keep some approved snack foods around to munch on to keep your blood sugar and energy levels up.

UPDATE ON PURIFICATION EMAIL

DAY 6 email stated, “NO BEANS, NO NUTS”
CORRECTION BY DR. ROLES: BEANS ARE ALLOWED – NO LIMIT. NUTS ARE ALLOWED ON DAY 12 – small portions, handful (one ounce); best on your vegies as opposed to a snack (too easy to overeat as a snack).

ARE YOU STILL HUNGRY?

Remember, on the SP Purification Program, as you eliminate the foods that you crave, your body will at first experience a desire for them. You will feel like you are hungry when you really are not. You just feel “uneasy” because the body is starting to detoxify. If you were to eat your sugar, your chocolate or your starches… whatever you crave, the detoxification will stop and your “hunger” will go away. This is not true hunger, it is ADDICTIVE HUNGER. Once your body has cleared the toxins (3-5 days), your “hunger” will go away, your cravings will reduce and you will start to experience NORMAL HUNGER. A real sign when your body is actually telling you it is time to eat.

ALSO…. remember to eat LARGE AMOUNTS of greens and vegetables, both cooked and raw. Ideally a pound of each per day. The high amount water, fiber and nutrients will remove your hunger completely once your addictive hunger has passed.

Hope this helps…. Keep up the good work

Dr. Roles

CHANGE TO SP GREEN FOOD TODAY

For our participants on the 21 DAY FREEDOM PLAN, today we change from the SP CLEANSE, which has been increasing the liver detoxifications abilities, to SP GREEN FOOD, which is a powerful, whole food supplement that feeds your liver. It is composed of all the healthy, green vegetables (buckwheat leaf, barley grass, brussel sprouts, kale and alfalfa).

TO CLARIFY:
NO BUTTER / NO OIL
NUTS – OK STARTING ON DAY 12 – This Friday for most participants
HUMIS OK – moderate
BEANS OK – unlimited

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE….  You did great!

 

We are hearing stories of weight loss, energy tripled, sleeping deeper than ever, sinus problems going away… even surgery being postponed.

 

So far…. We have lost 192 lbs. as a team…   Great work everyone.

 

BE CAREFUL….  This is the time to claim your health… to keep the success you have attained…

So… re-enter slowly.

 

If you have not spoken to me directly, please wait to re-introduce any new foods until you do.

If you must, stick with the most excellent foods first

    Meat / Eggs / Raw Nuts / Hummis

But, when you introduce a new food, introduce ONLY ONE, with two servings on that day.  Then wait THREE DAYS before you try something else new.  In this way, you will know which foods your body has trouble with.  Watch for any loss of the gains you achieved, whether that was energy, sleep, digestion, abdominal discomfort, etc….

 

Call us to schedule time with me.   702-451-0480

 

If you know how to do Facebook, share your success with your friends and post your success story on our FB business page.

 

Log into our website, www.gvwellness.com, and click on the Facebook icon.  Then you can post your story there.

 

Take care everyone… and again… CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

WELCOME TO A NEW LIFE!!!

Congratulations on successfully completing the 21-day Purification Program.  The key now is to incorporate what you have learned during this liver detoxification into your daily life.

Over the past week we have suggested an approach to re-introducing foods.  To assist in identifying potential food reactions, we have assembled a table adapted from Basics of Food Allergies, by Dr. James Breneman.

This table correlates allergic reactions with common offenders including the frequency of the time interval between when the food is eaten and when the symptoms begin to appear.  One can see that some reactions such as heartburn may occur very shortly after eating a particular food offender and other reactions may not present for days.  These reactions can be very difficult to assess and often go incorrectly diagnosed.  Unless there is some suspicion and some type of thorough evaluation, such reactions can be ascribed to many things other than the real cause.

Download the table from our website and keep it handy as you reintroduce foods.  Enjoy!

Supplement Regimen for Post-Purification

If you have not already begun your regular supplement regimen during the final week of the purification program, you should do so today.  At a minimum, you should be adding a whole food multi-vitamin such as Catalyn to your daily diet.  If your goal is weight loss, remember there are additional supplements which you should also begin taking (review Weight Loss tips from Days 8-10).  Ask Dr. Roles to recommend the right supplements for you.

Catalyn

6 tablets per day

When Should I Do the Program Again?

It is recommended that you go through the 21-day purification program at least once every 12 months.  However, several patients find that they prefer to go through it once every 6 months, as it helps them to ‘reset’ and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Reminder

Take it slow when reintroducing foods.  The key is to not overdo it!

Dr. Craig Roles

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Benjamin Franklin

The key to good health is consulting with your health care professional on a regular basis…not simply when you do not feel good.  Dr. Roles is available to assist you with any questions you may have about losing weight, improving your immune system, developing a healthy diet, etc.  Take advantage of this valuable resource.

DAY 19 – FOOD RE-INTRODUCTION

“Re-Introduction” Phase                               food-intolerance.pdf

To begin the “Re-Introduction Phase”, start by consuming one “new food” on day 1 of your  trial. Begin with the food you previously ate most frequently and really miss. In most cases, the best place to start is with one of the “Big 5” offenders such as: Wheat, Dairy, Corn, Soy and Egg. Eggs are an especially good place to start as they are least likely to react and are a good source of nutrition and satisfaction.  Eat the trial food 2-3 times during that day and then do not eat it again for at least 48 hours, ideally 72 hours or 3 days. You should now be back on your “Baseline Diet”. If you have a reaction to the food during the next 48 hours, record it on your “Food Experience Journal” (p. 30 of your Post-Purification booklet) and do not eat it again for at least 3-6 months. If you are uncertain whether you had a reaction, re-test that food after the 72 hours. It is very helpful to create a chart or spreadsheet of your offending foods and the reactions you experienced for future reference.

 

Introduce a new/suspect food every 72 hours (3 days) and chart your progress or reactions

accordingly.

 

A Note on Reactions

If you have a reaction or symptoms occur, record it in your “Food Experience Journal”, along with the day and time. Contact the office as soon as you can and explain your symptoms to Dr. Roles or Lisa, along with how many hours/days it took to react after eating that new food.  By considering the timing of the introduction of the new food, Dr. Roles will likely be able to tell you which of the new foods you ate is suspicious.

 

As an example, let’s say you started eating one new food every three days and after day 7 you began to get abdominal cramps 6 hours after eating. The most likely foods to be suspicious of are milk, cheese, gluten, nuts, apples, coffee and pork. Dr. Roles would be able to help you determine which, if any of these, is the culprit. 

 

Or say you suddenly experienced a migraine 12 hours after eating. Highly suspicious foods would be chocolate, coffee, soy, corn, nuts, cola and foods containing MSG. Again, Dr. Roles is there to help you in determining which if these is most likely affecting you. 

 

Remember, the key to successfully identifying the culprit is maintaining good records of your re-introduction. It is always best to work closely with Dr. Roles in performing this “Elimination/Reintroduction” trial. Guidance from Dr. Roles can increase results. Hang in there with this important program – the results can change your life!

 

Suggested Order of Food Group Re-Introduction

DAY 22

EGGS

          Eat cooked eggs or a hard-boiled egg 2-3 times on Day 22

DAY 22-24  (Monday – Wednesday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

DAY 25 (Thursday)

          GRAINS (Use Ezekial sprouted whole-grain bread)

                   Eat 2-3 slices at different times of the day

DAYS 25-27  (Thursday – Saturday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

DAY 28 (Sunday)

          DAIRY (you can choose milk or cheese)

                   Eat 2-3 servings spread throughout the day

DAYS 28-30 (Sunday – Tuesday)

          KEEP PROGRAM THE SAME AS DAYS 11-21

 

HAVE THE IDEA?  Keep this pattern the same until you have tested all the foods you would like to possibly eat in the future.  If you have no reaction to a food, it is ok to eat that food again, but, remember, if you have the desire to lose more weight, you should continue to remain off the wheat and dairy.  (Use almond or rice milk in place of cow’s milk.  Goat yogurt is also a good choice)  Eggs are great if you do not react to them.

DAY THREE – A MOST CRITICAL DAY!!!

This is the most critical day in your program…

It is VERY IMPORTANT to stick to your program 100%. 

Reminders

Remember, don’t cheat… hang in there!  Eating even a small amount of “unapproved food” can cause inflammation and slow down the results you will receive from this detoxification.  If you are getting too fatigued, make sure you are eating frequently and then try increasing the amount of Whey Protein in your shakes.  Also, as always, drink plenty of water.  This will help clear toxins faster and avoid constipation.

Constipation

If constipation occurs, INCREASE WATER / INCREASE VEGETABLES / EAT ONE WHOLE FRESH BEET DAILY

Retracing Old Injuries

Don’t be surprised if old symptoms you haven’t experienced in years begin to return during the program.  They should be of short duration and are considered a beneficial sign that your body is purging toxins and repairing underlying issues with your health.  Old injuries or conditions may resurface for anywhere from an hour to a day or more.  This theory is known as Homotoxicology and was developed by a German medical doctor named Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg.  If you would like to learn more about homotoxicology, we have assembled a short article for your reading.

http://www.purificationsupport.com/email/homotoxicology.pdf

In fact, one patient had an old wrist injury swell up during day two.  The interesting point is that she broke it almost 30 years ago.  There had been no swelling or problem of any kind noted in the 30 years since the original injury, however her body felt it necessary to bring heat, macrophages and other white blood cells in to perform long overdue repairs.  The swelling went back down to normal after a couple days.
