Great job everyone…. How did you do through the weekend? Usually, the first weekend can be a challenge. We went to a catered birthday party and for me, it was challenging. Not so much because I wanted to eat the food at the party, I just found myself eating more. I feel so amazingly well, I was not tempted with the pralines and cream or the bar-b-que. And I didn’t cheat…. AWESOME….

Here is our Day Eight Email Support if you have not seen it
Congratulations! You are done with the SP Cleanse capsules. Well, technically you should have 3 capsules leftover (go ahead and take those this morning). If you have more than that leftover, you probably just missed taking them at some point. Not to worry. Keep taking the SP Cleanse (7 capsules 3 times per day) until you have finished the bottle. However, you should also introduce the SP Green Food starting today as indicated in the Supplement Regimen section below.
How Should I Feel Today?
After 1 week on the program, you should be feeling good. You should not be hungry or feel like you don’t have any energy. If you do, you are most likely not eating enough vegetables during the day. Also remember that you can do up to 5 shakes a day. A key point to remember is that as long as you are eating healthy vegetables, you can eat as much as you want, so you should not feel hungry.
As you progress through this program, you may desire to add additional weight loss support products. You can do this during the purification program or afterwards. These products are available from Dr. Roles. Today we start a series of tips on what products to take for your body shape.
If your weight is generalized and you are heavy all over (typical hypothyroidism), the thyroid is most likely your weak endocrine gland. Discuss the following protocol with Dr. Roles.
1 tablet three times daily
3 tablets per day
1 tablet three times daily
If you have trouble taking all of the capsules each day you can try mixing them in with your shakes. The first 7 days this makes for a bit of an intense shake (mainly due to the cayenne in the SP Cleanse), however now that you have completed those, you might consider this if taking the pills is difficult for you.
Welcome to Day 5 of the Purification Program.
Just a friendly reminder: corn is not a vegetable, it is a grain and there are no grains allowed on this program.
Also, remember that although something may be healthy (such as beans and nuts), it may not be allowed during the purification program due to other factors (such as potential food allergens). So, with this in mind, remember: no beans or nuts of any kind.
How Should I Feel Today?
You should be feeling more energetic today and the cravings should continue decreasing. Many have expressed that they have not only learned to ‘tolerate’ the shakes, but have even come to enjoy them. Yes, yes, it’s true!
We mentioned yesterday that your sleep should be improving. You should find that you are able to fall asleep easier, enjoy more restful sleep, and are able to sleep through the night more often. The good news is that this should continue throughout the purification program and beyond (as long as you maintain some of your newly forming good habits).
If you haven’t started exercising yet during this program, now is an excellent time to use some of your returning energy and start. Remember, exercise is an essential part of losing weight during this program.
Don’t wait to get hungry. Waiting increases cravings, lowers your blood sugar level and can lead to fatigue. Try to have your SP Complete Shake with your Whey Protein first thing in the morning and keep some approved snack foods around to munch on to keep your blood sugar and energy levels up.
Congratulations on successfully completing the 21-day Purification Program. The key now is to incorporate what you have learned during this liver detoxification into your daily life.
Over the past week we have suggested an approach to re-introducing foods. To assist in identifying potential food reactions, we have assembled a table adapted from Basics of Food Allergies, by Dr. James Breneman.
This table correlates allergic reactions with common offenders including the frequency of the time interval between when the food is eaten and when the symptoms begin to appear. One can see that some reactions such as heartburn may occur very shortly after eating a particular food offender and other reactions may not present for days. These reactions can be very difficult to assess and often go incorrectly diagnosed. Unless there is some suspicion and some type of thorough evaluation, such reactions can be ascribed to many things other than the real cause.
Download the table from our website and keep it handy as you reintroduce foods. Enjoy!
Supplement Regimen for Post-Purification
If you have not already begun your regular supplement regimen during the final week of the purification program, you should do so today. At a minimum, you should be adding a whole food multi-vitamin such as Catalyn to your daily diet. If your goal is weight loss, remember there are additional supplements which you should also begin taking (review Weight Loss tips from Days 8-10). Ask Dr. Roles to recommend the right supplements for you.
6 tablets per day
When Should I Do the Program Again?
It is recommended that you go through the 21-day purification program at least once every 12 months. However, several patients find that they prefer to go through it once every 6 months, as it helps them to ‘reset’ and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Take it slow when reintroducing foods. The key is to not overdo it!

Athletes and sports enthusiasts suffer from different sports injuries, the most common one being shoulder injuries, contracted during the strenuous activities and efforts required during various sports. Chiropractors provide effective treatment methods to rid the patients of the pain and suffering of a shoulder injury.
How Are Shoulder Sports Injuries Contracted?
Shoulder sport injuries are contracted by professional athletes and individuals who pursue a certain sport as a hobby. The strenuous and exhausting practice procedures, along with the constant exertion on the body, result in acute muscular pains in the arm and shoulder regions, for the sports professionals. In extreme cases, the pain spreads throughout the entire arm, causing sore and stiff shoulder muscles and tingling pain up to the fingers.
The sports which require extensive physical effort like basketball, baseball, football, etc., require the players to engage in different repetitive movements, which sometimes cause shoulder sport injuries.
Symptoms of Shoulder Injuries
Shoulder injuries which are very common among sports athletes and professionals present certain symptoms and signs which help in the diagnosis of the form of injury. A patient with a shoulder pain which persists for a couple of days has a high risk of suffering from a shoulder injury which needs to be treated promptly.
Recurring episodes of shoulder pain is also a sign of a shoulder injury, while inability to carry objects highlights the extent of damage suffered by the shoulder of an individual. In extreme cases, the shoulder injury causes a deformity in the joint and damages the muscles of the shoulder, which leaves the individual in extreme pain.
Shoulder injuries also include bruises and swellings around joints or the arm region of the body, which results in stiff muscles that are difficult to move. In some cases, the patient suffers from a fever and swelling with an infection, if there is acute damage to the muscles and joints of the shoulder region. Some individuals also face difficulty in moving their injured shoulder and experience pain in the area throughout the day.
Shoulder injuries require prompt and efficient medical treatment, carefully administered, to ensure that there are no further damages to the injured area. Rest and anti-inflammatory medicines are prescribed by doctors to bring down the swelling in the shoulder. Various painkillers are prescribed which only serve to alleviate the pain for a short period of time. Chiropractors provide effective treatment for the shoulder sports injuries contracted by different individuals.
