This month we are talking about Dr. Aieta's Naturopathic Detox Protocol and highlighting some products to support the detox. ⁠

Now that the holidays are over and it’s a new year and I’ve been getting tons of questions from patients about ways to jump start a new wellness plan and maybe do a detox or cleanse to help their bodies recover after all the holiday over-indulgences.⁠

Let’s first discuss dietary changes that we can all gradually do to get back on track. Instead of jumping head first into a very strict diet plan that may be difficult to stick with, we can do it gradually in steps while taking some very specific supplements as an adjunct to the diet to help with overall metabolism and detoxification. We can break it down to weekly dietary changes and supplements that build upon the previous week as we work towards achieving or re-achieving optimal health.⁠

Week 1: For the first week as you are trying to get back on track simply alter your diet by avoiding all grain products-by just doing this you will significantly reduce your daily sugar and carb intake. This means taking out bread, pasta, cereal, crackers, rice, corn, cookies, and cakes, etc. Don't worry about tracking your carbs or calories just focus on being 100% grain free and try to just eat when your are hungry and limit between meal snacking.⁠

When you are ready move on to step 2

Week 2: Continue to avoid the grain products as well as foods with added sugar. Now it’s time to start being more aware of how much fat you are ingesting daily in contrast to your protein. Most people forget this crucial step of adding more fat in the diet. It's easy to cut carbs and immediately start eating tons of protein and forget about the need for dietary fat. In order to get into ketosis, it’s important to eat higher fat (70% or more of your daily calories) moderate protein (around 20-25%) and low carb (around 7% or less).⁠

Week 3: Start checking for the presence of ketones either through urine (convenient, cheap but least accurate), breath (more expensive, very convenient, more accurate than urine), or blood (most expensive due to the cost of the test strips, most accurate, least convenient). Based upon your ketone status you can adjust your diet accordingly.....maybe less carbs, less protein and more fat.⁠

Week 4: Once you are in ketosis your appetite should be greatly diminished so you should start trying some intermittent fasting. Essentially only eat when you are hungry and try eating within a 6-8 hour window.⁠

Week 5 and on-going: If you hit a plateau-pick one day a week as a designated overfeed day where you may exercise more and increase your fat and protein intake but keep your carbs low (less than 20-30 Net-Carbs). This will recharge your metabolism.⁠
