The key difference maker was using the Arbonne Digestion Plus - a powerful three tiered system formulated with probiotics, prebiotics and 11 enzymes that are depleted in our body as we age. Rather than take one packet a day, the 10 day program involved using three packets of Digestion Plus each day. I would always take my first packet in the morning as I rose, an hour or so before eating. This allowed the formula to get into the lower GI system, rather than "stop" to digest food. This is how one targets and improves lower gut health.
I really focused on GREEN smoothies for much of the 10 days, but if I did have an Arbonne chocolate smoothie (which I LOVE!) I added the Arbonne Greens Balance, which is a product that I have rallied for since before it became available to the public. Greens Balance contains all the super green whole foods that are well known in the world of those fighting cancer holistically - spirulina (from blue green algae), wheat grass, barley grass, and chlorella. The GreenTox allows me to get back into my routine of eating healthy day to day...as the Arbonne 30 Day program teaches. I don't believe in diets. You can't turn your body around in a short 3 day cleanse....you have to commit to a lifestyle. Longevity is not short term, right? So you should not expect short term eating habits, such as diets, fasting, mini cleanses, etc. to provide long term results. One of the recipes I created is this new Green Pineapple Smoothie, which contains the proteolytic enzyme Bromelain from pineapple.
I turned my health around in 2010 and am happy to consult with you and help you do the same. Arbonne does play a role...I have researched the products thoroughly - they are proven effective, pure, and affordable. I have other tools (see Products & Services) that allow me to help you on an individual basis - I do not believe in cookie cutter approaches. The Arbonne 30 Day Program works as a stand alone, but if you are wanting a functional medicine approach to your overall well being, the Qest4 Bio Resonance system is cutting edge in approaching your cellular health at the root cause issue.
