What is the Balanced and Clear program?

Balanced and Clear is a 5-week elimination diet and gentle but thorough whole-body cleanse that focuses on reducing inflammation and clearing the liver’s detoxification pathways. During the Program you will be eating healthy foods and taking a detoxification support formula called ClearVite
What is an elimination diet?

An elimination diet, also known as an “allergy-elimination diet,” is where specific foods are eliminated from the diet for a certain period of time in order to see if health symptoms improve. Then those foods are re-introduced into the diet to find out if symptoms reoccur. This is the gold standard when it comes to finding out if one has food intolerances. The first 3 weeks of the Balanced and Clear program will be the elimination diet phase. The last 2 weeks will be the re-introduction phase of the program.
What will I eat during the Program?

You will be eating whole, real, unrefined, unprocessed foods such as fresh vegetables and fruits, non-gluten whole grains, and some chicken, fish, and/or turkey if desired. THIS IS NOT A FAST!
After the first 3 weeks, can I just go right back to my regular way of eating?

You can, but that is not advised. After eliminating the most common allergens from your diet for 3 weeks, I will teach you how to re-introduce these foods back into your diet carefully so you can watch for possible negative reactions. This can sometimes feel like a slow process, but for long-lasting results that you’ll have, it is certainly worth it. One of the most unique and greatest benefits of this Program is learning which foods, if any, are contributors to your health problems.
What foods will I have to give up during the Program?

All the most common allergens plus other foods/drinks that are difficult on your digestion and detoxification systems. These include soy, dairy, gluten (from wheat, rye, barley and oats), corn, tomatoes, caffeine, alcohol, red meat, and a few other foods.
I have a busy life. Will I be able to get all my work done while doing the Program?

Absolutely. Although it would be ideal to be able to check into a spa for the duration of the Program and not have to do any work at all, not many of us can afford such a luxury. Many have succeeded with the Program while working full time and taking care of families as well.
Will I feel lousy during the Program?

Many people experience some withdrawal-type symptoms (i.e. headaches, tiredness, grumpiness) for the first few days of the Program and then feel pretty good for the duration. Of course we’re all different, but by the end of the first 3 weeks, most folks report feeling great.
How many presentations are included?

There are four presentations in all, each one important to help you through a different protion of the Program. #1 – Getting Started #2 – How foods affect us #3 – Reintroducing foods for optimal results and #4 – Lasting success.
Will I have any support while I'm doing the Program?

Yes. You will receive regular emails with reminders and helpful hints throughout. You will also be able to email me directly with questions that you may have.
I don't think I have any allergies. Can the Balanced and Clear program still be helpful for me?

Most peopledo, in fact, have some sort of hidden food allergies, but not everyone. If you are one of the lucky few without food allergies YES, you can still benefit from this Program. We are all exposed to toxins daily and our detoxification systems can easily get overwhelmed. This Program greatly reduces your toxic burden so that your detoxification systems can “catch up” with their work and do their jobs more efficiently. It is also a great way to get “on track” with healthful eating habits.
Will I be hungry all the time?

No. There is no reason for you to be hungry at all during the Program. If you plan well, you will have plenty of food to eat at all times.
Will I lose weight during the Program?

Many people lose weight during the Balanced and Clear program, and some don’t. Sometimes folks start losing weight only after they’ve finished the Program and eliminated their allergens for a while longer. Other times, there are other issues that need to be addressed before a person can start losing weight. Those issues, such as thyroid imbalances, should be addressed with myself or another practitioner separately.
What kind of results can I expect from the Program?

There are as many kinds of results as there are people. Some of the changes that I have witnessed include the disappearance of chronic headaches, fibromyalgia pain, sleep apnea, sugar and other food cravings; lowering of cholesterol levels and inflammation; a better relationship with food, a greater sense of clarity, more energy, resolution of chronic constipation, reducing or eliminating the need for medications and of course, weight loss.
What is in the ClearVite product?

ClearVite powder contains hypoallergenic rice protein as well as a number of nutrients and herbs specifically chosen for their ability to assist the liver and other detoxification organs in the processing of toxins and the reduction of inflammation.Click here for a complete list of ingredients.

What about the Strengtia product? What is that for?

The Strengtia is a high quality, high potency probiotic supplement. It will support healthy digestion, elimination, detoxification, immune balance and healing. I recommend that all of my clients supplement with quality probiotics.Click here to see Strengtia label information.
Can I do the Balanced and Clear program more than once?

Yes. This Program can be repeated as often as quarterly, which is a good idea especially for those dealing with chronic health issues. Once those issues are resolved, repeating the Program every 6 to 12 months is a great maintenance schedule to follow.
