Happy New Year! WOW!  The calendar turns and already we are a week in! New year –  New opportunity.  I love the book Outlive by Peter Attia MD. He talks about health span vs lifespan and the interesting thing about this mindset is that you have to think long vs thinking short. In other words, you can’t correct two decades of bad habits with one month of good habits. Speaking of habits, here comes my yearly quote:

“Habits are like rabbits- when you put two of them together they tend to multiply.”

I love that saying because it reminds me of fable “The Tortoise and the Hare”. When you make small steady changes you add and layer more and more over days and weeks and months, what happens is they snowball until your health span really starts to improve.

Detox Shake

You can do the detox with the shake or without and just follow the dietary guidelines. You can follow the book and do 10 days or 28 days or talk to me about any variation in between.

The truth is detoxing is natural process that you are doing 24/7/365 (technically 366 this year because its a leap year!). Using the shake adds the nutrients in bulk so that the process gets a boost and doing the diet modifications decreases the incoming toxins so that the process progresses faster. You can go to this link to sign up for additional support for a month from SP.

This is a process that is an impact moment

-I had a patient who texted me the other day who had lost 9 pounds on the detox.
-Another had to alter their blood pressure meds
-One saw her sugar numbers drop.

If you layer other small habits like good sleep hygiene and exercise then the detox will be just the beginning of this journey to a long health span.
