How long is the post-purification protocol?
post-purification protocol is based on the health needs of the
individual. A health care professional can determine what is right for
the patient. This protocol could feasibly be followed for a lifetime.
What if there are continued health issues?
health care professional and patient should work together during
post-purification. The health care professional may recommend
supplements that are specific to a patient's health concerns.
Is this post-purification program recommended for pregnant or lactating women?
No. More calories are required during pregnancy and nursing than needed for everyday weight management.
What if more protein or fiber is required in the diet?
additional protein or fiber, mix a shake with Whey Pro Complete
(powdered protein supplement) or Whole Food Fiber (powdered fiber
supplement). You can also combine Whey Pro Complete or Whole Food Fiber
with SP Complete®, or other beverages or foods, such as
applesauce or yogurt. See the Whey Protein brochure or Dietary Fiber
brochure for more details.
Why is exercise necessary? How much and what type is recommended?
facilitates the removal of toxins and it helps manage a healthy weight.
It is recommended to walk at least 30-45 minutes at least four days per
week. More strenuous exercise may be appropriate as well. A health care
professional can help develop an appropriate exercise program.
Can regular supplements/medications be taken while on the program?
health care professional can help decide what is right for a patient
based on health history, supplements/medications being taken, and health
goals. A health care professional may recommend additional supplements
to support a patient while on the program.
What if fatigue sets in while on the program?
may set in because the body may require a higher amount of protein
during post-purification. A health care professional may discuss adding
Whey Pro Complete to the program. Whey Pro Complete is a powdered
protein supplement that contains 15 grams of protein per serving which
should meet the body's protein requirements.
What if I am not losing weight like I did on the purification diet?
post-purification diet is a way to establish healthy eating habits, not
a weight-loss program. That said, many people will lose weight on both
purification and the post-purification programs because they're eating
in a conscious, deliberate way. Healthy weight management is a goal that
should be discussed with a health care professional. Some tips for
healthy weight management are:
- Watch portion sizes.
- Healthy snacks should be available at all times.
- Make sure the diet has more vegetables than fruits.
- Don't eat anything in excess.
- If sugar cravings are a problem, a health care professional may recommend additional supplements.
