Why Cleanse? – Liver Detox

28 Sep

A properly functioning liver is vital to health.  Have you been on any medications? Or are you currently while on the HCG Program or getting ready to start it?

We recommend that you do a cleanse before starting this program. It could be the difference of losing a pound or 2 a day verses a half pound to 1/4 pound a day.  At the very minimum it is best to do a 2 week liver cleanse.  If you have been on any medications (birth control, pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, cholesterol, NSAID’s etc, etc.) a 4-week whole body cleanse is truly in your best interest.  This will help avoid a plateau and also make the plan more successful with ridding the weight more quickly! Who doesn’t want that?!

What is the liver and how does it function? The liver is your largest internal organ and it performs many functions including detoxification of the body. The liver works by both filtering toxins directly and by altering toxins so that they can be removed at other stages of detoxification. The liver filters toxins from one quart of blood every minute. After the liver processes these endotoxins (produced in the body), exotoxins (from outside the body) and other wastes, they are sent to the kidneys and colon for elimination.

Liver Detox is an easy-to use, two-part cleansing and detoxification program formulated to simultaneously support, protect, stimulate and assist with the body’s natural detoxification of the liver with natural minerals, vitamins, herbs and amino acids.‡ Both the Morning Formula (Part I) and the Evening Formula (Part II) contain minerals, herbs and amino acids that promote healthy liver function.

Liver Detox includes:

Milk Thistle – an herb used traditionally to support normal detoxification functions of the liver. The strong antioxidant activity of the main ingredient in milk thistle (silymarin) helps promote healthy liver function and to protect healthy liver cells.

L-Methionine – amino acid that the liver uses to create glutathione.‡ Glutathione is powerful amino acid made by the liver, which acts as an antioxidant and detoxifying compound. Supplementing with L-methionine can help raise glutathione levels.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) – the liver also uses NAC to create glutathione. Supplementing with NAC can help raise glutathione levels and thus support the natural detoxification functions of the liver.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – antioxidant that helps revitalize glutathione and supports detoxification.

Selenium – essential trace mineral that enhances the antioxidant power of zinc and vitamins to allow them to function better in their natural detoxification roles.

Ayurvedic Herbs – used to promote the natural detoxification capabilities of the liver. Among the most commonly used herbs are Boerhavia Diffusa, Eclipta Alba, Terminalia Belerica, Tinospora Cordifolia, and Picrorhiza Kurroa.

Dandelion – herb used traditionally to stimulate bile production and promote healthy liver detoxification.

My Alaska HCG Diet Journey – Nursing Mom’s

13 Sep

For those of you that don’t know already, we just had our 2nd little girl about 2.5 months ago!  Yes, I am already ready to lose the weight!  My body loves to hold onto the weight after and I continue to gain weight even while nursing.  After talking with Dr.Shane, I found it is very normal for women to gain weight after baby.  Bad news……if I don’t get a handle on this I will probably continue to gain weight.  I have decided to do a modified HCG Diet Program while nursing and share the results along the way! Here is what Dr. Shane had to say: “Your body will tell you what is the best for you and how much is sufficient and how much is not.  Just listen and be attentive to what is going on.  The body naturally puts on the fat in order to have the stores necessary for you and the baby after delivery so that makes perfect sense.  Of course, the body also knows how to take it off properly, you just need to give your body what it needs to do that.  Too much food intake will put more on, not enough will put more on.  Both extremes put the body into “storage mode” for exactly the opposite reasons.
While nursing, it is my understanding that the body has a natural amount of hCG flowing in order to create the milk and nutrients for the baby when the mother is between meals and in “fasting” periods such as sleeping.  Thus, going into a higher protein, no carbs or sugars, and being careful with types of veggies, beans and other foods is key to helping your body get the excess fat stores utilized and burned off.  The hCG formula isn’t necessary, to my understanding while nursing.  You can utilize the Slim Support, Slim Trim Tea, and other types of metabolism boosting, cleansing, and supporting supplements during this process.”

So here we go!  Starting weight is 162.8 September 9th.  I will be using the Slim Support and Slim Trim Tea while taking the Doctor’s advice on my diet.
