Purification Will this program help me lose weight? You can achieve weight loss by eliminating high-calorie, refined, nutrient-poor foods. The dietary component of the purification program is design d to be a nutrient-dense diet with the added benefit of utilizing whole foods and whole food supplements to support detoxification. The ideal weight management system is not a quick fix-instead it is a long-term commitment. You will need to make lifestyle changes that will continue long after the purification process has been completed. By following Optimal Health & Wellness Center's Cleanse & Purification Program, under Dr. Kelenyi's supervision, you will be working toward sustained, long-term weight management.
Is exercise necessary? How much and what type is recommended?Exercise facilitates the removal of toxins and it helps you manage a healthy weight. It is recommended that you walk at least 30-45 minutes at least four days per week. Strenuous exercise should be put on hold during the three-week period. Consult with Dr. Kelenyi if you are currently on a more strenuous exercise program that you would like to maintain throughout the purification program.
How do I stick to the program when eating away from home? Here are some tips to help you stay on track:
• Plan your strategy before you leave home.When choosing a restaurant, select one which serves foods that are on the recommended list. This will curb temptation.
• When traveling, pack a cooler of foods, including fresh fruit and sliced raw vegetables-and don't forget the water bottles.
• When attending a social gathering, bring a dish to pass that you know would be acceptable, like a fruit/veggie tray or chicken kabobs.
• For added convenience, SP Complete and Whey Pro Complete are available in single-serving packets.
What supplements are taken during the program? • SP Cleanse® - purification • SP Complete™- nutritious supplement shakes • Gastro-Fiber® (capsules) or Whole Food Fiber (powder) - fiber support • SP Green Food™- phytonutrients
Can I take my regular supplements/medication on the program? Please contact Dr. Kelenyi or your health care professional before you begin any purification program. They can help you decide what is right for you based on your health history, supplements/medications you are taking, and health goals. Your health care professional may recommend additional supplements to support you while on the program.
Why can't I substitute different vegetables than what are outlined? The vegetables cited in this program are recommended because of their high nutritive value and their capacity to support detoxification.
What physical changes will I experience during purification? Two of the main effects will be an increase in urination and bowel movements. This is a natural effect of purifying and should not interfere with your daily activities. In rare cases, you may experience a throbbing sensation in the head, generalized aches, itchy skin, rashes, or fatigue. These are normal occurrences and will subside in a day or two.
Please talk with Dr. Kelenyi, if you have questions about how you are feeling or what you are experiencing.
What can I do if I am tired or lack energy while on the program? You may be fatigued because your body may require a higher amount of protein while purifying. Ask Dr. Kelenyi about adding Whey Pro Complete to your program. Whey Pro Complete is a powdered protein supplement that contains 15 grams of protein per serving which should meet your protein requirements.
What can I do for temporary constipation? Remember to drink plenty of water-at least 64 ounces per day. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits with a high fiber content. Eating one beet daily encourages regular bowel movements. Talk with Dr. Kelenyi about other recommendations.
Do the purification products contain gluten? Gluten sensititvity is a complex issue. Due to differences in patient sensititvities, nutritional counseling from Dr. Kelenyi will be individualized and potential gluten allergies and/or celiac disease should be discussed before you begin the Cleanse & Purification Program.
Why is there lactose in SP Complete? SP Complete is a nutritious supplement shake. Whey is a protein source found in the shake and lactose is a nutrient found in the whey. There is approximately ½ gram of lactose per shake.
Is the Cleanse & Purification Program vegetarian? It is vegetarian (lacto-ovo), but not vegan.
What if I am allergic to certain foods on the list? If you suspect you are having a reaction to a specific food, refrain from eating it and consult Dr. Kelenyi about how to incorporate alternative food sources.
