Five Day Reset Challenge – Detox Program
 
Detox means detoxification. Detoxification means cleansing the body. Toxins are everywhere. We breath them into our lungs with pollution, we drink them and absorb them into our skin and then we eat them! It is true that modern civilization has contributed to an increase in the toxic load we humans face, but internal and external toxins have been around for a long time.
 
Internal toxins are formed with natural processes of breathing, digestion and just living. When we eat, we produce waste products naturally. Gut bacteria digest the food we eat and many of them create toxins/byproducts that must be eliminated. The good gut bacteria are home to the body's powerful immune system which is why it is critical to keep your gut healthy.
 
A Detox program can purge these toxins from your body. A periodic regime, based on need and environment, can be an important factor in maintaining your vibrant health. The Shaklee family of products have a fantastic family of products that will aid in your periodic detox as well as maintaining your health.
 
This program will make an assumption that you are reasonably healthy and want to purge some of the built up toxins in your body; accumulated over time. The more healthy your lifestyle, the less you will need an intense detoxification. A series of detoxifications can aid greatly in promoting your overall health and is a wonderful foundation to begin a healthier lifestyle. If you are sick or have a serious illness, a different detoxification process may be called for. Contact us for additional information.
 Five Day Detox - Daily Regime
Wake Up – Each Morning
The first thing each morning, it is important to re-hydrate your body. Proper hydration provides the vehicle to eliminate toxins from your body. Overnight, you loose water by breathing and sweating. Replenishing this lost fluid is critical to health and energy!
Breakfast Smoothie
Many people suggest juicing as a great way to get nutrients but that eliminates the fiber that you need to help eliminate toxins and waste. Juicing can be an excellent way to combat more serious disease issues and can be addressed separately.
 
Smoothie recipes abound. Many can be found on Chef Nancy's Pinterest Smoothie Bar, but this is a suggested recipe:
 
In your blender or VitaMix: (add more and put in glass jug in the fridge for tomorrow).
Mid Morning Snack
Sometimes a smoothie, even with all that filling fiber doesn't keep you going. A Shaklee 180 Snack Bar is just the ticket to hold you over until lunch on those days when you need that mid-morning pick-me-up.
 
Lunch – Shake & Salad
We suggest Shaklee Life Energizing Shake for lunch. You can bring it in a thermos with you to work, or make it fresh at home or work.
 
You can bring a nice salad or order one from most restaurants. Eat a big salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, and other veggies with a light vinaigrette or lemon dressing.
 
The fiber in the salad and shake will keep you feeling full for hours and will help boost your energy without that bloated feeling you often get with a Standard American lunch.
 
Afternoon Snack
Try a different Shaklee 180 Snack Bar and a banana, apple or orange for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. It will help energize you and the fiber will keep your tummy full until you have dinner!
 
Dinner
Dinner should be a lighter meal. While traditionally, Americans feast at dinner, your body doesn't have time to fully digest a heavy calorie/fat/protein ladened meal. During this short detox period, try a lighter fare.
 
Eat a big, monster salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, veggies. Add some nuts and seeds for crunch and omega-3. Take your Shaklee Life Strip with your meal.
 
Salad Suggestion:
Nightly Snack
We all know this is a no-no but heck, we all like a munchies while watching an evening movie or favorite TV show.  Try some Hummus & Chips.  Many folks have never tried hummus. It comes in a variety of flavors but is basically chickpeas/garbanzo beans; super high in protein and fiber and delicious. Get some nice roasted corn chips (non-GMO) and enjoy a handful of chips and a ½ cup of hummus. (available from BJ's, Costco and your local grocery). I add extra chopped garlic!
 
Bedtime
Don't forget to brush your teeth!
 
Before retiring, take 5 Alfalfa Complex Tablets and 2 Liver DTX Caplets (Liver Detox) and 2 – 4 Herb-Lax (adjust as needed). I suggest adding 4 Vita-C 500mg tablets to further combat oxidant build up from the day. The body heals at night.
If you have difficulty getting or staying asleep at night, try adding 3 Shaklee Gentle Sleep Complex.
