I call this time of year “The Quarter of Regret” because inevitably come January 1st when we make our new plan for the year we say, “Oh it’s been a rough few months of parties and sweets.” What if at the end of December you could say, “I just finished a purification program and I feel great! Ready to start the new year fresh!”
According to Statista.com, the second most popular New Year’s Resolution for 2018 after “save money” was….. you guessed it, LOSE WEIGHT. This makes sense considering 1 in 3 American adults have prediabetes or diabetes today. In an office of 6 people that’s 2 of you, in an office of 30 that’s 10 of you! That’s rather shocking since the co-morbidities (other conditions that accompany diabetes) are conditions such as:
- Kidney disease
- Eye disease
- Heart disease (double the risk!)
- Fatty liver
- Poor healing
- High blood pressure
- Insulin resistance (5 times the risk!)
- Inflammation & pain
So “losing weight” is actually more like “staying healthy.” The FDA Commissioner stated:
“Improving the nutrition and diet of Americans would be another transformative effort toward reducing the burden of many chronic diseases, ranging from diabetes to cancer to heart disease. The public health gains of such efforts would almost certainly dwarf any single medical innovation or intervention we could discover.” ~Scott Gottlief 2018
What Should You Do?
There are many ways to begin to take action on getting your blood sugar under control (and lose weight along the way) and you don’t have to wait for the new year. One way is Standard Process’ Purification and Detox Programs. There are 21 day, and 28 day options (though I recommend the 21 day!!). It’s a great way to do clean living for 3 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I have personally done this the past few years and I have to say, it’s been revolutionary. To be able to say “no thanks, I’m on a cleanse,” or “no thanks, I’m getting a head start on the new year” feels incredible! Instead of starting 10lbs up from last year, perhaps you start the year 5lbs less.
Toxins from the environment, your job, your prescriptions, life(!) can be keeping you from achieving a healthy weight because our body stores toxins inside fat cells. Our body won’t lose weight without releasing those toxins and if we don’t have clean detox pathways (think liver, kidneys, and lymph) then the body says “NO WAY!” Kick those toxins to the curb and achieve a healthy weight naturally.
If you would like to learn more about the 21 Day Purification Program and what it includes, I will be hosting a FREE informational webinar on Monday November 16th, 2020 at 6:30pm. In the webinar I’ll be discussing, the damaging effects of environmental toxins and high blood sugar, and how THIS PROGRAM can help manange that damage, as well as help you lose weight (if you have weight to lose).
