Day 17

Welcome to Day 17 of the Purification Program.

An important part of maintaining the results you achieve from the program is continuing the process you have started of a healthy diet and good supplementation.  Those are the two components we are going to discuss today.

Healthy Diet

These days it seems that there is a new ‘fad diet’ popping up almost daily.  So, what diet should you choose?  We recommended the Low-Carb Mediterranean Type Diet.  Many diets you are familiar with are actually variations based on this diet.  For more information about how and what to eat, download the reference sheet below.

Good Supplementation

In a perfect world we would be eating all the right nutrient-dense foods, freshly grown, without chemicals or additives.  However, between what is available to Americans today and what we choose to eat, our diets are actually quite lacking in the nutrients we need to be healthy.  Therefore, an important part of ensuring you are receiving the nutrition you need each day is good supplementation.  We recommended Standard Process’ multi-vitamin Catalyn.

“Catalyn is a multiple vitamin, mineral, and trace mineral concentrate formulated by Dr. Royal Lee in 1929.  Catalyn is the antithesis of the “mega-dose” approach to nutritional supplementation.  Dr. Lee summoned the whole of his considerable nutritional experience and know-how to provide a nutritional catalyst, a supplement using whole food ingredients which he named Catalyn.  Dr. Lee’s goal was to provide a food-based package of nutrients in the most potent and bioavailable form–its natural state.”

For more information, please check out the Catalyn product information page below.  There are several brochures and information sheets available for download that will provide you with additional information.

Catalyn is available from Dr. Carlson.  Ask about it today to make sure you have it ready to go on Day 22.

How Should I Feel Today?

You have reached the ‘good’ part of the program where you should have been feeling great for the past several days and that feeling should continue today.

Weight Loss

Make sure you are limiting your fruit and meat intake and focusing on your vegetables.  With just 5 days more you want to make sure that you are maintaining the good eating habits you have developed over the last couple of weeks.


Plan ahead for the completion of the program.  Please don’t think that you will be able to adopt your old habits and still maintain the results you have achieved.  Start thinking now about the changes you will make in your everyday life.
