Balanced nutrition is at the core of the Cleanbody Method, fostering optimal health and vitality. Consuming a diet rich in nutrients and low in toxins is pivotal for supporting your body's intricate systems and functions. CleanFOOD encompasses a variety of nutrient-dense foods that fuel your body, providing essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and energy.
Why is consuming CleanFOOD Important?
CleanFOOD is not just about eating—it's about fueling your body with the right ingredients. By choosing whole, unprocessed foods, you provide your body with the building blocks it needs for growth, repair, and overall function. Nutrient-rich foods play a vital role in:
Immune Health: Key nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and antioxidants fortify your immune system, enhancing your body's defense against infections and diseases.
Energy Levels: CleanFOOD provides sustained energy, helping you stay focused, active, and alert throughout the day.
Digestive Wellness: Fiber, found in plant-based foods, supports healthy digestion and regular bowel movements, reducing the risk of digestive issues.
Healthy Weight Management: Nutrient-dense foods satisfy your body's nutritional needs, helping to control cravings and maintain a healthy weight.
Cellular Repair: Essential nutrients aid in repairing damaged cells and tissues, promoting overall health and longevity.
How does the Cleanbody Method support the CleanFOOD Pillar?
The Cleanbody Method offers a holistic approach to supporting CleanFOOD through its three steps:
STEP 1: EVALUATE
It is important for you to evaluate your nutritional health on a yearly basis with your healthcare practitioner. In our CleanSTART program, we will support you in investigating your nutritional health using lab tests such as:
Nutrient Testing: Evaluating your nutrient levels allows you to pinpoint any deficiencies that might be impacting your health. Essential nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants play crucial roles in various bodily functions, including immune support, energy production, and cellular repair. Specialized tests, such as blood tests, can provide a comprehensive analysis of your nutrient status, guiding you in making informed dietary choices and, if necessary, considering targeted supplementation.
Food Intolerances and Allergies: Food intolerances and allergies can lead to a range of symptoms, affecting your overall quality of life. Identifying these sensitivities is a valuable step in optimizing your nutrition and addressing any underlying health concerns. Tests like IgG and IgE antibody tests can help identify potential triggers, allowing you to tailor your diet to suit your body's needs.
If you're participating in our CleanSTART Wellness or Medical Program, our Cleanbody Team can guide you through the process of obtaining these tests and interpreting the results. If you're not part of these programs, you can join the CleanSTART Coaching Program to get information and support about ordering these labs on your own or discussing testing options with your healthcare provider to determine the most suitable approach for your needs.
STEP 2: OPTIMIZE
In Step 2 of the Cleanbody Method, we support you in optimizing your Cleanbody Pillars. Within the Cleanbody Pillars, CleanFOOD takes center stage, emphasizing the significance of:
Balanced Diet: A well-rounded diet that includes a variety of whole foods ensures you receive a spectrum of essential nutrients.
Minimized Toxins: Reducing processed and artificial ingredients decreases your exposure to toxins that could impair your body's functions.
Nutrient Variety: Including a range of colorful fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats provides a broad array of nutrients.
Hydration: Staying adequately hydrated supports digestion, metabolism, and overall vitality.
STEP 3: SUPPORT
While a well-balanced diet is a cornerstone of optimal health, there are situations where additional support through advanced nutrition plans and nutritional supplements can play a crucial role in promoting your well-being. These interventions are designed to address specific health concerns, support metabolic processes, and enhance your body's ability to function optimally.
Advanced Nutrition Plans: Tailored nutrition plans take into account your individual health goals, preferences, and any specific challenges you might be facing. Whether you're looking to manage a chronic condition, optimize your energy levels, or enhance your athletic performance, an advanced nutrition plan can provide a roadmap for achieving your objectives. These plans are carefully designed to ensure you're receiving the right balance of nutrients to meet your unique needs.
Nutritional Supplementation: In some cases, nutritional supplements can bridge the gap between your dietary intake and your body's requirements. Supplements may include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other bioactive compounds that play essential roles in various bodily functions. These supplements are chosen based on your individual needs and the results of nutrient testing, ensuring that you're getting the support you need to thrive.
Our Cleanbody Team, along with healthcare practitioners, can guide you through the process of selecting the most appropriate advanced nutrition plans and supplements for your circumstances. These interventions are meant to complement your Cleanbody Pillars and support your journey toward improved health and vitality.
