21-Day Purification Cleanse

A couple weeks ago we introduced some of our supplement partners and talked about products that we feel passionate about. This week we are introducing the Standard Process 21-day purification program that we partner with to create a custom cleanse for our patients. Have you ever felt like your gut health could use a reset? Do you feel the desire to start eating healthy or lose weight but you don’t quite know where to start? Maybe you’ve looked into extreme forms of dieting but have found that the results are not long lasting?

Our 21-day purification cleanse is modeled off of the Standard Process program. We use their whole food supplements, partnered with a simple plant based diet aimed to cleanse and purify the body. The cleanse experience will look entirely different for each person. That is why we have you consult with one of our practitioners prior to starting, as well as throughout the process to monitor your progress and make modifications where they are needed.

Participating in a purification program can help you start to develop healthy habits. People so often participate in trendy, fad diets and feel dissatisfied or deprived with the food they are eating. Our goal in offering a 21-day cleanse is to help people understand what foods their bodies best thrive on. We are aiming to help people create lasting, indefinite, healthy lifestyle changes.This past week our front office staff asked a few of our patients that had participated in the cleanse for their thoughts, here was some of the feedback that we received:

“I first did the cleanse because all of my coworkers were doing it. I had tried doing keto, paleo and even intermittent fasting. I felt so hungry! I am so glad that I asked Rebecca about the cleanse because it changed the way I ate and thought about food.”

“I’ve done the cleanse three times now and every time I do it I feel amazing. Sarah compared it to getting the oil changed in your car, but a wellness reset for your body. I love that, because that’s exactly how I feel every time I do it.”

“Mid way through doing the cleanse I felt like I was slightly deprived. I scheduled an appointment with Sarah and we talked about how I needed to modify the program for my needs. I thought that was so great. We made a plan when I first consulted with her, then we course corrected midway through! It was a great a program and I am so glad I did it.”

“After I finished the cleanse I made an appointment for my husband and bought him a cleanse kit. Then we did it together! It was life changing! We recommend it to everyone we know.”

The path to developing good habits and living a healthy lifestyle can start today! Call our front office at (503) 493-9389, or schedule online to learn more about our 21-day purification program and see if it’s right for you!

Acupuncture for Stroke Patients

Acupuncture can provide significant results when used to treat stroke rehabilitation. Clinically we see our patients improve markedly from neural deficits compared to the western treatment of  PT and OT. Acupuncture works to improve a patient’s blood flow and restore the nervous system, providing a stroke patient with improvement after every acupuncture treatment.

Treatment has the biggest impact when performed in the acute stage. Treatments are recommended 2-3 times a week for the first 6-8 weeks, depending on severity, and then once a week thereafter. The treatments build on each other and after each treatment, patients report incremental improvement. We have found that scalp acupuncture excels over body acupuncture in treating neurological conditions such as strokes. The treatments are very comfortable and extremely effective for the patient, they report progress after the majority of sessions. If it were my family member, acupuncture treatment for a stroke would be our first line of defense.
