Best Detox Ever!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I meant to post this a few days ago, but I've been really busy tending to sick kids. ... Anyway....
Last Friday I finished three weeks of detox.

I've tried detoxes before but never like this. My doctor provided me a list of approved foods (lean meats, certain vegetables and fruits) and told me to keep my calories between 1500 and 2000 calories/ day. The detox pills were a pain to take every meal but it soon paid off. I ate fantastic meals!

A little background info:
I grew up with only one allergy (to nickel) until about four years ago when I developed allergies to tomatoes (my favorite fruit), seasonal allergies, an intolerance to onions, dry patches on my face, and allergies to other various commercial products. I suffered from psoriasis on my scalp, and I just couldn't get rid of it. My energy was near zero most days,and I figured it was due to allergies.

Within week 2 of the detox I noticed a huge change. I no longer have allergies AT ALL, the psoriasis is gone, my skin is smooth like it was many years ago, my hair is silky, my energy sky-rocketed, I had NO cravings and I dropped 20 pounds by the end of that second week.

That weekend I went by Chick-fil-A to get some unsweetened tea. Since I forgot my stevia at home I just used Splenda. After all, I've used Splenda for years. When I tasted it, I couldn't bare to drink it. It tasted like cat hair. Gross. ... but Oh well. Later on that evening, I took my kids to IHOP and ordered some coffee. Again, I grabbed the Splenda. Again, I tasted cat hair. (OK... we can rule out an unclean pitcher now.) So... I poured it out and grabbed the Sweet-N-Low. (I was using this product at home right before I started the detox.) It tasted ok, but the weirdest thing happened. It left a nasty coating on my tongue. Eww.

By the end of week three I had lost 24 pounds and I feel better than I have felt since my teen years. I'm 34.

I tell ya... There's a lot to be said about detox programs. I've done them before, but I can honestly say that I've never had success like this.

It's week 4 and I'm following my strict diet program to the letter. If the first three weeks are any indication of the success of this medical facility's products and advise, then I know I am in good hands.

By the way... I spent months researching the type of program I am on. I read books, watched testimonials, read every pro and con and evaluated them all. This program really does work.

If you're thinking about a detox program, then I suggest really researching the products (and contents) they use as well as the facility itself. It's worth your time.

As for me... I've made a commitment to myself to do this every 6 months or so.


Have a happy day!

    Thanks! Actually, yes, a yeast cleanse was part of the program. Also, a liver cleanse, kidney cleanse, colon cleanse and a few other choice supplements such as Vitamin E, Fish oil and Coral Calcium. The kit alone, minus the Vitamin E and Calcium, is 195.00. The multi detox pack... which is what took, is 295.00. I know that sounds pretty high, but honestly... considering how much money I have spent on allergy meds, Tylenol, psoriasis shampoos and meds... Seriously worth the money for me.

    The candida was definitely a problem for me. Funny thing is that I never knew that's what was causing my problems. I saw doctors about it too....
    Everything in the detox is all-natural. I can't praise the products enough.... really.

    Just in case you're interested, I've put the link down here so you can at least see them.

    Also, here's the number of someone who can answer any questions you might have. She's really nice. Her name is Michelle and her number is 918-724-7991.

    I just want to clarify this though.... I'm on Dr. Simeon's HCG Protocol. The detox was Phase 1 of my program. That doesn't mean that you have to do the HCG protocol to get the detox. You can simply order the detox package.

    Oh, and by the way... I created some fantastic meals! It was hard trying to keep my calories up! Loved it!

    I know I will be doing this again.

    Great job!! Sounds like you found a truly wonderful program. What kind of detox are you doing? Just an overall detox or a specific cleanse of some sort? I've been reading recently about candida cleanses and many of the symptoms you describe can be attributed to candida (yeast) overgrowth, so I am curious if that was part of your detox program?

    Great job on the loss! Our team really appreciates the magnificent contribution!
