Important Elements to Consider During Any Dietary Change: 

1. Drink at least half an ounce of therapeutic water per pound of body weight throughout the

If possible, drink alkalized water. (Eternal is a great brand.) If you are interested in having a water filtration system in your home for alkalized drinking water, contact the Optimal Health Network.

Or, use filtered tap water and add a pinch of sea salt to each quart along with a few drops of Young Living essential oils such as Tangerine, Orange, Citrus Fresh, or Peppermint.

Drinking therapeutic water is essential for supporting your body during all dietary changes.

2. Take the binding agent chlorophyll during the detox process.

Our extraordinary bodies are designed to be able to detoxify on a moment-to-moment basis, but in the modern world the work of clearing stored toxins can often overload the liver, colon, and kidneys.

It is the build-up of toxins in the body that we address when we embark on a detox program.

When striving to detox, it is very important to support your detoxification organs (liver, colon, and kidneys) on an ongoing basis to make certain that you don't just stir up toxins, which can cause them to be driven deeper into the body, potentially leading to cancer, heart disease, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), and more. Rather, you need to allow your detoxification organs to fully clear the toxins as they are released from their stored locations within the body.

To order chlorophyll, please call us at (608) 242-0200.


3. Finally, take 5,400 to 6,000 milligrams of fish oil per day.

Fish oil helps to optimize the body's lipid profile, supports the body's inflammatory response, and provides antioxidants. When it comes to detoxification, the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA contained in fish oil have the ability to be incorporated into cellular membranes, thus improving cell function. Almost every cell in our body requires omega-3s, in part because they help make our cells pliable, letting nutrients in and toxins out.

Optimal Health Network offers Standard Process Tuna Omega-3 Oil, which is independently tested for environmental contaminants.

To order fish oil, please call us at (608) 242-0200.

Why materials matter... 

Enema bags and enema cans can be made from a variety of materials -- latex rubber, India rubber, plastics, silicone, or stainless steel. Latex, rubber, and plastics are toxic materials; many people don't have a direct sensitivity to them, but they do outgas over time, which causes them to end up in the body. If you are chemically sensitive or maintain a zero tolerance for toxins, use stainless steel cans or silicone bags.

Effects of Low-Carbohydrate and Low-Fat Diets: A Randomized Trial

Lydia A. Bazzano, MD, PhD, MPH; Tian Hu, MD, MS; Kristi Reynolds, PhD; Lu Yao, MD, MS; Calynn Bunol, MS, RD, LDN; Yanxi Liu, MS; Chung-Shiuan Chen, MS; Michael J. Klag, MD, MPH; Paul K. Whelton, MD, MSc, MB; and Jiang He, MD, PhD

Ann Intern Med. 2014;161(5):309-318.

Background: Low-carbohydrate diets are popular for weight loss, but their cardiovascular effects have not been well-studied, particularly in diverse populations.

Objective: To examine the effects of a low-carbohydrate diet compared with a low-fat diet on body weight and cardiovascular risk factors.
alternative health testimonials
Design: A randomized, parallel-group trial.

Setting: A large academic medical center.

Participants: 148 men and women without clinical cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Intervention: A low-carbohydrate (<40 g/d) or low-fat (<30% of daily energy intake from total fat [<7% saturated fat]) diet. Both groups received dietary counseling at regular intervals throughout the trial.

Measurements: Data on weight, cardiovascular risk factors, and dietary composition were collected at 0, 3, 6, and 12 months.

Results: Sixty participants (82%) in the low-fat group and 59 (79%) in the low-carbohydrate group completed the intervention. At 12 months, participants on the low-carbohydrate diet had greater decreases in weight (mean difference in change, −3.5 kg [95% CI, −5.6 to −1.4 kg]; P = 0.002), fat mass (mean difference in change, −1.5% [CI, −2.6% to −0.4%]; P = 0.011), ratio of total-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (mean difference in change, −0.44 [CI, −0.71 to −0.16]; P = 0.002), and triglyceride level (mean difference in change, −0.16 mmol/L [−14.1 mg/dL] [CI, −0.31 to −0.01 mmol/L {−27.4 to −0.8 mg/dL}]; P = 0.038) and greater increases in HDL cholesterol level (mean difference in change, 0.18 mmol/L [7.0 mg/dL] [CI, 0.08 to 0.28 mmol/L {3.0 to 11.0 mg/dL}]; P < 0.001) than those on the low-fat diet.

CONCLUSION: The low-carbohydrate diet was more effective for weight loss and cardiovascular risk factor reduction than the low-fat diet. Restricting carbohydrate may be an option for persons seeking to lose weight and reduce cardiovascular risk factors.

Weight Loss and Petrochemical Release

Weight loss can release stored petrochemicals throughout your body, which can cause cellular damage.
To support your body to remove petrochemicals, take the enema series with Young Living Citrus Fresh Essential Oil added to your coffee enema.

citrus essential oil D-limonene, a chemical constituent in all citrus oils, literally digests petrochemicals. (When you apply lemon juice or essential oil to a balloon, it will pop, and when you apply it to a foam cup, it will disintegrate the material.)

D-limonene content of citrus oils:
  • grapefruit: 88-95%
  • orange: 85-96%
  • tangerine: 85-93%
  • lemon: 59-73%
D-limonene's activity is in part due to the induction of phase I and phase II detoxification enzymes.

We are exposed to petrochemicals through our contact with plastic bags, oral contraceptives, adhesives, herbicides, lipstick, couches, water bottles, foam drinking cups, laminate floors, sunscreen, cleaning supplies, fingernail polish, automotive belts, electronics, shower doors, drapery, emulsifier in soap, speaker grills, car exhaust, ink pens, mascara, plastic food wrap, car moldings, and dental sealants (to name a few).

Petrochemicals in the body can be a factor in adult onset erectile dysfunction and can cause a 400% increased risk of sperm reduction. Petrochemicals can also cause or contribute to obesity, heart disease, adult onset diabetes, uterine damage, fibroids, endometriosis, cystic ovaries, an increased risk of breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers, estrogen dominance, shortened reproductive lifespan of females, miscarriages, leaky gut, thyroid abnormalities, and autoimmune disease.
