The key now is to incorporate what you have learned during this detoxification into your daily life.
To assist in identifying potential food reactions, we have assembled a table adapted from Basics of Food Allergies, by Dr. James Breneman.
This table correlates allergic reactions with common offenders including the frequency of the time interval between when the food is eaten and when the symptoms begin to appear. One can see that some reactions such as heartburn may occur very shortly after eating a particular food offender and other reactions may not present for days. These reactions can be very difficult to assess and often go incorrectly diagnosed. Unless there is some suspicion and some type of thorough evaluation, such reactions can be ascribed to many things other than the real cause.
Download the table from the Standard Process website and keep it handy as you reintroduce foods. Enjoy!
Supplement Regimen for Post-Purification
If you have not already begun your regular supplement regimen during the final week of the purification program, you should do so today. At a minimum, you should be adding a whole food multi-vitamin such as Catalyn to your daily diet. If your goal is weight loss, remember there are additional supplements which you should also begin taking (review Weight Loss tips from Days 8-10). Ask Dr. Carlson to recommend the right supplements for you.
Catalyn: 6 tablets per day
When Should I Do the Program Again?
It is recommended that you go through the 21-day purification program at least once every 12 months. However, several patients find that they prefer to go through it once every 6 months, as it helps them to ‘reset’ and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Take it slow when reintroducing foods. The key is to not overdo it!
