10-Day Detox Program

Evolving research suggests that the cause of many health problems may be associated with prolonged exposure to various toxic agents in our environment. Some of your health challenges may be related to impairments or imbalances in your body’s ability to properly detoxify and remove these toxic compounds.

Detoxification - the elimination of toxic wastes - has been used to promote health in cultures around the world for thousands of years. The body’s capacity to carry out this complex process of detoxification has to do in large measure with nutrition. Certain foods can burden the detoxification machinery of your body, while certain foods and nutrients can help it. During periods of detoxification, certain nutrients are in increased demand to help turn toxic substances into harmless by-products for elimination from the body. The first 5 days of the program require a gradual removal of specific groups of foods from the diet in the order indicated. At the same time, you will be slowly introducing UltraClear PLUS. As you begin to eliminate foods from your normal diet, detoxifying reactions can result such as disturbances in sleep patterns, changes in body temperature, light-headedness, mood swings, headaches, joint or muscle aches, changes in gastrointestinal function, and changes in body odor or breath. These responses are usually minor and generally lessen in intensity during the program. If you experience some responses that are troublesome to you and have concerns, please call immediately: Aimee at 773-774-5610 or Cathy at 312-752-8447. General Guidelines

Be sure to take all of the recommended services of your powdered beverage as it contains critical ingredients to nutritionally support your body’s Detox process.

Select fresh foods whenever you can. If possible, choose organically grown fruits and vegetables to decrease your intake of pesticides and herbicide residues. Otherwise, wash conventional produce thoroughly to remove pesticide residue. The “cleaner” you eat, the better the program will work. Use purified, distilled or mineral water to mix the powdered beverage. Avoid fruit drinks or cocktail

drinks that contain added sugar.

Drink at least two quarts (64 oz) of plain, purified, distilled, or mineral water each day. Water flushes the system and carries out toxins, making it a critical component of your program.

Strenuous or prolonged exercise may reduce during the program to allow your body to cleanse and rejuvenate more effectively. Adequate rest and stress reduction are also important to the success of this program.

During Days 5-7 you may want to curtail some of your more strenuous

activities, as you may experience a decrease in energy.

The recipes and meal plan provided are simply ideas. As long as you consume the required amount of product power and eliminate the appropriate foods, feel free to create meals that best fit your time, appetite and cooking style.

If you get light-headed or excessively fatigued, this may be a sign of low blood sugar. Keep an

apple or pear handy (allowed throughout the program) or consume a serving of

UltraClearPLUS.
