Due to the ever increasing exposure we experience to toxic chemicals, medications, pesticides, molds, heavy metals, etc., we are strong believers in cleansing on a regular basis, ideally two times per year. While our bodies are beautifully designed to protect us as much as possible, there are limits to what it can do. Unfortunately, we seem to have surpassed those limits and now we really need to make a more concerted effort to support our bodies in detoxifying.Do you have toxic overload? Take the Toxicity Quiz
We at Root & Branch offer a number of FOOD BASED cleansing programs depending upon your health issues. All of them involve eating 3 meals per day in conjunction with taking herbs, supplements, and possibly protein powders, which are designed to open the drainage channels in the body and allow for toxins to be released through the colon and urine.
We don’t encourage cleanses that severely restrict food intake as they create stress on the adrenals and nervous systems. It is important that while cleansing your blood sugar stays stable to minimize stress.
On all programs, it is suggested that you eliminate alcohol, sugar, gluten, dairy, and caffeine for the duration. Our experience is that the more regularly you do these, the cleaner your diet becomes.
While we work individually with each person to make sure they are on the correct program, here are the programs that we suggest for most people. The menu includes a varied abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits, with select proteins. The supplements support the body’s ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. This promotes a state that allows for toxin release.
All programs come with nutritional support products, booklets,
shopping lists, meal plans, and recipes.
It’s designed to purify, nourish and help patients maintain a healthy body weight by eating whole foods, exercising, drinking nutritious shakes and taking supplements made with whole food and other ingredients.* For more information and videos, click HERE.
Push-Catch Liver Detox:
This is a wonderful place to start for people who are quite inflamed, are on medications, who have completed a course of medical treatment such as chemo, who are very sensitive to medications, who feel sluggish and constipated, have brain fog, fatigue, etc. It is a gentle way to open the liver channels, convert any toxic metabolites to forms that are more easily excreted, and make sure that they are bound and removed from the body, rather than being deposited elsewhere. Two products are able to be toggled to begin at a gentle dose and slowly work up as needed.
