Purification Support – Day 3

SPlogoWelcome to Day 3 of the Purification Program.

Question: “If you travel and are away from your blender what can you do to make your shakes?”

Here’s a tip for you: Take the SP Complete and Whey Protein with you to a Smoothie King (you can measure it into a Ziploc bag for ease of transport).  They will be happy to use your protein and SP Complete to make a shake for you.

Make sure not to use their protein during this 21-Day Program.  If weight loss is your goal, keep the fruit to a minimum and remember the ratio of 3 vegetables to 1 fruit.

How Should I Feel Today?

Today will likely be a continuation of Day 2.  If you are feeling a bit awkward and not 100%, this is not uncommon.  Hang in there, as this should dissipate in a day or so. 

If you have a coffee withdrawal headache, go back and look at our suggestion on Day 1 under “How should I be feeling today?”

Don’t be surprised if old symptoms you haven’t experienced in years begin to return during the program.  They should be of short duration and are considered a beneficial sign that your body is purging toxins and repairing underlying issues with your health.  Old injuries or conditions may resurface for anywhere from an hour to a day or more.  This theory is known as Homotoxicology and was developed by a German medical doctor named Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg.  If you would like to learn more about homotoxicology, we have assembled a short article for your reading.


In fact, one patient had an old wrist injury swell up during day two.  The interesting point is that she broke it almost 30 years ago.  There had been no swelling or problem of any kind noted in the 30 years since the original injury, however her body felt it necessary to bring heat, macrophages and other white blood cells in to perform long overdue repairs.  The swelling went back down to normal after a couple days.

If you do experience any reoccurrence of past injuries or symptoms we’d love to hear about it!

Weight Loss

Your weight on the scale will vary a bit, but have no fear, this is completely normal.  Don’t stress over whether you can see a difference on the scale yet.  Remember to stick mostly with Cruciferous Vegetables and minimize your fruit intake.  Not sure what Cruciferous Vegetables are?  Check out this article on Wikipedia.org.


SP ProductsGetting to Know Your Supplements

Did you know that Gymnema (possibly one of the products Brien added into your program if you crave carbohydrates) is an Indian Herb used for over 2,000 years and literally means “Sugar Destroyer” (Gymnema Sylvestre)?  This makes this herb especially effective in reducing carbohydrate cravings and is a helpful addition to the 21 Day Purification Program.  If you would like to read more about this incredible herb from India, clink on this link.



Remember, don’t cheat… hang in there!  Eating even a small amount of “unapproved food” can cause inflammation and slow down the results you will receive from this detoxification.  If you are getting too fatigued, make sure you are eating frequently and then try increasing the amount of Whey Protein in your shakes.  Also, as always, drink plenty of water.  This will help clear toxins faster and avoid constipation.
