Day 4

Welcome to Day 4 of the Purification Program.

“Where the determination is, the way can be found.” – George S. Clason

How Should I Feel Today?

If you have been feeling rough the last couple of days we have great news for you.  Today should be the beginning of your ‘reward’ for embarking on this intense program of detoxification.  The average patient begins to feel more energetic and vigorous on day four.  If you have experienced headaches as your body has released toxins, these should lessen in intensity.  You should feel your energy beginning to return and surpass your ‘normal’ levels.  Many have stated that they begin to experience energy levels that they have not had for many years.  As a bonus, you should also find that you are beginning to sleep better at night.

One key point to remember is that everyone detoxifies differently.  Some experience headaches.  Some experience shoulder or back pain.  Some experience an upset stomach.  These experiences vary in intensity and duration, but most important to keep in mind is that it is all part of the process.  If you experience anything that concerns you, remember that I am available to discuss this with you.

Weight Loss

The more you sweat, the more you detoxify and lose weight.  Remember, this can be achieved through exercise, but can also be enhanced through the use of a sauna, steam room, etc.  Whatever you do, don’t try to fast, it can turn down your metabolism and in fact keep you from losing weight.

Reminders

Make sure you are having 1-3 bowel movements each day during the program.  If not, make sure that you are drinking enough water.  Remember, you should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day.  If you are drinking enough water are you eating enough beets everyday?

Recipe of the Day

Vegetable Angel Hair Zucchini “Pasta”

Ingredients:

3 zucchini
16 oz cherry tomatoes (very flavorful) or 1 lb. regular tomatoes
1/2 small white onion
A few fresh basil leaves
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper (not green)
2 tsp. dried Italian spices or oregano, basil, salt & pepper
A little Olive Oil (optional)

Directions: Use a Spiral slicer to cut Zucchini into angel hair like strands. Place all other items in a food processor or blender, and PULSE CHOP to obtain a “chunky” consistency.  We don’t recommend pureeing the mixture. Pour sauce into a bowl and allow to “set” for 30 minutes to allow sauce to thicken. Pour sauce over your Zucchini “pasta”.
