1 Vital Detox Guide

2 Promoting Detoxification Every day our bodies are exposed to a wide range of toxins. Even when we engage in a healthy activity, like taking a walk outside, we breathe in pollutants. While we are fortunate to have natural physiological processes that help our bodies eliminate unwanted toxins, we often ingest and are exposed to toxins more rapidly than we are able to expel them. In order to effectively detoxify your body, it is important to both minimize toxic exposure and increase the body s ability to neutralize and remove toxins. Since we all ingest toxins through both voluntary and involuntary pathways, we cannot eliminate every source, but we can take steps to reduce the rate of toxic ingestion. Reduce The Toxic Load Therearemanychoiceswecanmakeonadailybasisthatwillreduceour exposuretoharmfultoxins: Eatorganicfood Avoid using herbicides and pesticides in lawns and gardens Avoiding consumption of large predator fish to limit exposure to heavy metals, PCBs, and Dioxins Usingawaterfiltertoremoveharmfulimpurities Choose natural personal care products to avoid contact with phthalates Choosenon-toxicbuildingmaterialsandVOC-freepaintwhen remodeling your home or office

3 Optimize Detoxification Pathways Using Vital Clear in conjunction with an elimination diet, consisting of hypo-allergenic, nutrient-dense whole foods, can improve overall health, reduce the body s toxic load, and optimize detoxification pathways.* Vital Clear is a functional beverage mix that was specially formulated to promote both Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification, while supporting healthy blood sugar levels and inflammation pathways.* The full range of 38 pure macro- and micro-nutrients in the Vital Clear formula supports normal physiological functions, such as neutralizing and expelling toxins from the body.* Vital Clear also contains several specialty nutrients, such as N-Acetyl Cysteine, Broccoli Powder, Taurine, Glycine, and Methylsulfonylmethane, that support liver health and normal detoxification pathways.* Healthcare professionals frequently adjust protocols depending on each patient s unique health history and goals. The Vital Detox Guide suggests a general detox plan that a healthcare professional can modify on a patient-specific basis. Please note that the Vital Detox Guide does not limit caloric intake or create parameters for individual macro-nutrient levels in the diet, since such guidelines are highly specific to each individual and should be discussed directly with a healthcare practitioner. When Should I Detoxify? When you feel congested or toxic, it is always wise to take steps toward detoxifying, including drinking plenty of filtered water, getting extra sleep, eating right, exercising, taking in proper nutrients, and utilizing a steam or sauna. Seasonal changes are key times to do a major detoxification. As the seasons change, the body undergoes stress. Spring and autumn are best. In the spring, focus on fresh greens, citrus fruits, vegetable juices and produce that is in season. In autumn, harvest fruits (apples, pears and grapes) and seasonal vegetables are best. On the other hand, it is key to think about maintenance detoxification on a daily basis. Making sure that optimal toxin removal is taking place assures the daily, efficient operation of all systems. The major detoxification pathways are the liver, colon, kidney, lungs, lymph, skin and blood.

The dirty-dozen includes: apples, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes, snap peas, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, and sweet bell peppers. Choose organic, free-range, and grass-fed animal products. Drink 64 ounces of filtered water daily, with lemon if desired. Eat a variety of whole foods. Experiment with new whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Breakfast should consist of a shake made with Vital Clear and fresh, organic fruits.
