We designed Purify both to clear the body of foods and chemicals to which you may be allergic or sensitive and to improve your body’s ability to process these substances.
It’s called an “elimination diet” because it requires you to remove certain foods and food categories from your diet. These modifications allow your body’s detoxification machinery, which may be overburdened or compromised, to recover and function efficiently again.
The dietary changes help the body eliminate various toxins that may have accumulated due to environmental exposure, foods, beverages, drugs, alcohol or cigarette smoking.
How long is the diet and what do I eliminate?
Purify involves a 21-day elimination period followed by a four-week reintroduction period. The main foods/food categories it eliminates are gluten grains, corn products, soy products, dairy products, eggs, peanuts, tomato, oranges, alcohol, caffeine, beef, pork, processed meats and shellfish.
How does it work?
When you have a food allergy or sensitivity, immune-antibody complexes form and can cause immune system over-activity. This can increase inflammation in the body (which has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis and even cancer), environmental allergies, symptoms like headaches and rashes, autoimmune conditions (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, colitis, etc.), and general stress within the body that leads over time to chronic disease. Purify gives immune-antibody complexes time to clear, and most patients see marked improvement in symptoms within 21 days.
