21 Day Functional Medicine Detox Program
21 Day Functional Medicine Detox Program
What is a Functional Medicine Detox Program?
A Functional Medicine Detox Program is not a cleanse. It does not include any teas, shakes or weight loss pills that promise unattainable results but rather includes nutritionals, wholefoods and lifestyle practices under the care of a trained professional to guide you through and personalize your program to your own needs and to get you closer towards your health goals.
Signs your body may need a detox:
Digestive Complaints i.e bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhoea
Hormonal Imbalances such as PMS symptoms
Who Should NOT Detox
Current drug users or someone on multiple pharmaceutical medications - detox may effect metabolism of certain medications
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding - a detox is encouraged during preconception that is at least 3-6months BEFORE you start trying to fall pregnant. This goes for both men and women

The Three Stages
Week 1 - A focus on wholefoods, selecting nourishing foods that aid the liver, kidneys and bowels to eliminate waste products efficiently. This week you will learn SO much about the power of food as medicine
Week 2 - We start to cycle between low carb/ketogenic diet and a moderate carb diet. This allows your body to begin utilising both fats and carbohydrates for fuel. The break down of fats release stored toxins that will further add to the detoxification process.
Week 3 - We throw into the mix some intermittent fasting, this further encourages a state of ketosis that mobilises fatty acids to be burned for energy. Intermittent fasting has benefits on balancing blood sugars, adding to longevity and health span, improving brain function as well as autophagy which is a process of cellular ‘spring cleaning’ and cellular renewal.
The final stage will be your follow up consultation where we will talk you through how best to come off a detox and how to manage a wholefoods based diet long term.

About the Meal Plan
The meal plan is based upon eating 3 main meals across the day and limits snacking. This is so the body is able to digest and utilise nutrients effectively and to give space between meals for the migrating motor complex (MMC) to kick in, this is the bodys self cleaning as the MMC acts as a broom to gently sweep through the bowels. The 3 main meals are nutrient dense and satiating to keep you full and with balanced blood glucose and humming hormones across the day!
