Purification: The Perfect New Year’s Resolution


For many of us, January brings more than just a change in the calendar year. January also inspires thoughts of new beginnings that take shape in the form of New Year’s resolutions.

Whether you want to sleep better, think more clearly, improve your diet and digestion, maintain a healthy weight, or are simply trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle, the Standard Process Purification Program could be the perfect resolution.

Change Habits in Just 3 Weeks

The program itself lasts 21 days, just enough time to start to truly change habits without requiring an extensive time commitment. For some, even three weeks can seem like a long time. But with careful attention to meal and activity planning, as well as support from your health care professional, three weeks can truly fly by.

“Patients often have an initial response of fear of failure because they aren’t confident they can stay away from caffeine and alcohol for 21 days,” said Kimberly Besuden, DC. “But sometimes, all they need is reinforcement that they can do it and support to help them continue to do it. I can provide the accountability that they are often unable to provide for themselves.”

Provide a Clean Slate

Purification is not just a cleanse diet but a structured program focused on healthy lifestyle habits that include eating whole foods, exercising regularly, drinking nutritious shakes, and taking supplements. The purification menu includes an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits for the first 10 days, with select proteins added on day 11.

Think of it as a providing a clean slate.

“This program introduces nutrition-rich and fiber-dense foods as a way to create a new normal for my patients,” Dr. Besuden said. “In my functional medicine practice, I often have the patient begin the purification program as a way of providing a clean slate to see just how well their bodies can work when nourished properly.”

Helpful Tools to Find Success

The program includes a patient guide with an educational overview and space for daily journal entries to log foods eaten, how the patient felt, and activity. Helpful tools include the purification cookbook, featuring delicious recipes to make during the 21-day program, and the digital purification app, which can be downloaded to a smartphone to keep the patient on track.

The benefits of purification are many, from increased energy and better digestion to improved weight management and better sleep. Dr. Besuden personally completes the purification program two or three times a year and speaks from experience about how great it makes her feel.*

“The most rewarding benefits for me when I complete the program are the laser focus, improved digestion, amazing sleep, and a tremendous sense of accomplishment,” she said. “From my patients’ standpoints, they report improved weight management, a ‘new normal’ of a healthy lifestyle, a reset to start with a clean slate, and an improved knowledge of how eating those nutritious foods is a better choice in their daily diets.”*
