It's that time of year again! I am way overdue for my 21 Day Standard Process Purification Program aka The Cleanse!
Today was Day 1 of my 21 day cleanse. The Standard Process Purification Program helps the body to purify and rebuild itself from the inside out. It is also great for weight loss/management.
Purification, aka detoxification, helps us to remove toxins from the body. Everyday, we are exposed to toxins, including pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, chemicals found in hygiene products and cleaning products, trans fats, preservatives, additives, pharmaceutical drugs, free radicals, and more. In fact, there are over 80,000 registered chemicals under the CDC.
Although our body is designed to detoxify itself, we can become overburdened with toxins in this modern society, and our body needs the stronger purification support every so often.
Signs and symptoms that you might be toxic? Headaches, fatigue, stuffy head, insomnia, indigestion, food cravings, weight gain, reduced libido, skin problems, joint pain, and more.
This particular cleanse is one of my favorites. It supports the body's major organ systems with organic whole food based vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients found naturally in whole foods.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in doing this cleanse, please feel free to contact me with your questions and inquiries! The cleanse consists of 2-3 shakes a day with shake mix, cleanse capsules, fiber, and green food capsules.
Last but not least, importantly- not everyone is in the right place health-wise to do a cleanse. I examine my patients using muscle testing and other techniques, to determine if they could benefit from a cleanse program or not. It is best to do any cleanse under the guidance of a health care professional.
Day 1 has been an overall success, with moderate tiredness. A big challenge for me will be cutting out coffee cold turkey, which I already managed to do today. My caffeine addiction was one reason I knew I needed to do this cleanse. I will keep you all posted on my progress!
Happy Mothers Day from Dr. Amanda and Janice at Synergy Chiropractic!
I am so lucky and blessed to have my mother working as my office manager and receptionist! Most days, you will walk in to the office for your treatment and see her smiling face greeting you.
Thanks to my mom Janice for being an amazing and important part of Synergy Chiropractic. I really couldn't do it without her! And a big thanks to all of the mothers out there. We so appreciate all of your dedication, love, and hard work! We will see you in the office this week!
This past weekend, I attended a Beyond Fundamentals nutrition seminar at Standard Process, Inc out in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin!
As a holistic healthcare professional, nutrition is very important to me. Organ system work, nutritional sensitivity testing, and nutritional supplement, herb, and homeopathy testing are an integral part of my patient's treatments.
Standard Process, Inc is one of my absolute favorite supplement companies. All SP supplements and herbs are health care professional only, ensuring that patient's are taking exactly what they need for their specific health needs, nothing more and nothing less.
What I love about SP is that all of their supplements are whole food based, meaning that the nutrients and minerals come exactly as they do in nature, with all of the other vitamins, enzymes, cofactors, etc. that nutrients normally come along with when we eat our food. Beyond this, over half of their supplement ingredients are grown on their very own certified organic farm in Wisconsin, ensuring safety and quality. This is exactly how nature intended us to get our nutrients-from food!
Check out some of my snapshots below from my trip to the SP farm and facilities! At any future appointments, please feel free to bring in any supplements you are taking, so that they can be muscle tested to determine if they are beneficial or not. We can then also muscle test for specific nutritional deficiencies and needs of the body and determine an appropriate supplement regimen.
On May 1st, we celebrated our 5th anniversary here at Synergy Chiropractic!
I feel that the year brought much growth in all directions. I have continued to learn more about the body, chiropractic, emotional health, nutrition, and more, both at seminars and with my patients in the office. I have developed amazing relationships with my patients which I so cherish.
I genuinely continue to feel so happy and fulfilled in the profession that I am in. I truly look forward to the next year ahead with excitement!
Below are a few shots of me with some of my wonderful patients over the last year. It includes some but of course not all- I appreciate each and every patient for the special persons you are! Thanks to everyone for being a part of Synergy Chiropractic!
