Spring Cleaning the Liver: What is the Standard Process Cleanse Program?
Cleanses and detox programs are everywhere. From Hollywood stars like Gwyneth Paltrow endorsing her favorite cleanse, to stores like Wal-Mart, who carry liver and intestinal cleanses. Many patients come into my office asking me if I think that they should do a cleanse.
For some people, it can be a very important step in improving their health and changing their life.
The fact is this: We live in a toxic environment, and our bodies are overwhelmed and bombarded by toxins every day. Toxins enter the body through the digestive tract, by food additives, contaminated soil (heavy metals: especially cadmium, aluminum and mercury), and soft drinks, etc. The average American consumes 15 lbs. of additives and 200 lbs. of sugar per year!!
The Standard Process 21 Day Cleanse is one way to safely detoxify the body. Not all cleanses achieve this goal safely, gently, and effectively. A cleanse that claims to detoxify the body in under three weeks is usually too good to be true. The key factor in an effective and safe cleanse is that it supports Phase Two Liver detoxification.
Let me speak nerd for a moment: Phase Two liver detoxification is essential for the actual removal of toxins from the body. Many cleanses only support Phase One Liver detoxification, which is when toxins are packaged and moved to other parts of the body. Don’t recirculate the garbage!
I have done my share of research and have found the Standard Process Purification Program meets the goals to safely, gently, and effectively detoxify the body. What I like about this program is that it lasts for three weeks (this time frame is great for changing habits), is not based on deprivation (you can add in meat and fish after the 10th day and good fats like oils, etc.), is a phytonutrient, whole food based program with nothing synthetic or processed, AND it supports both phases of detoxification.

Omg, I am so excited to host the Michigan Institute of Thermography in late May! Have you ever heard of thermography breast scans? Too many people have not and it’s a shame. In my most pure value as a doctor, if you know anything about me it’s:
- I want to help you and everyone you know.
- I am all about prevention when it comes to health care. (We are talking about health care and not sick treatment, right?)
