The Natural Path 7-day Body Cleanse Diet and Detoxification Program -- a great preparation for the HCG Diet
So many of our patients LOVE our mini 7 day cleansing program. It has always amazed me what can happen in the body in just 7 days. Digestion can improve, body aches get better and energy levels rise. We find that this is the perfect way to set sail into the journey of the HCG Diet or just to cleanse your body any time you feel the need.
This is a 7 day body cleanse diet that myself and my partner Dr. Madda designed 6 years ago. We have lead this body cleanse diet throughout the year at our Portland, Oregon based clinic and also recommend that our HCG Diet patients begin the HCG Diet Program with this 7 day body cleanse and detoxification program.

The Basic food on the Body Cleanse Diet -- VEGETABLES (preferably all organic ingredients)
Please enjoy the amazing abundance of vegetables that this planet provides to NOURISH us. They are an amazing form of food, nourishment and medicine. Explore and experiment with using different types of vegetables. Saute them with a little coconut oil (just a tsp.), juice them, lightly steam them, make soup or enjoy them in their raw form. We enjoy sprouts rolled in nori seaweed sheets lightly drizzled with salad dressing; sticks of carrots, celery and jicama make a nice snack. Have fun and be creative!!
For maximum cleansing potential it is best to avoid starchy vegetables (sweet potato, potato, yam & squashes), as well as potential allergenic vegetables including corn & vegetables of the night shade family (pepper, tomato, eggplant & potato). Avocados may be used in moderation. Enjoy your 7 day body cleanse DIet and detoxification program.
