Total Wellness Cleanse Diet

 By Mizpah Matus B.Hlth.Sc(Hons)

The Total Wellness Cleanse was created by Yuri Elkaim, Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Kinesiologist,  honors graduate in physical education and health, and a former professional soccer player.

Elkaim says, “if you feel sluggish, overweight, tired, and lacking in energy, then your body has probably been overwhelmed by environmental toxins, household chemicals, food preservatives, and processed ingredients.” His 30-day cleansing program is designed to help you to rapidly cleanse your body of these toxic chemicals with a simple plan that doesn’t require the use of expensive detox supplements.

Wellness Cleanse Diet Basics

The Total Wellness Cleanse Diet was intended to accomplish three major goals:

  1. Alkalize the body: When you reduce the level of acidic wastes in your blood, your energy and health will dramatically transform.
  2. Get sugars out of the diet: Eliminating sugars reduces acidity and assists with addressing parasites and candida.
  3. Repair and support vital tissues and purify the blood: The health of the liver, stomach and small intestines should noticeably improve.

Initially you will undertake the 14-day cleanse phase, which emphasizes increasing the intake of alkaline foods, removing acid-forming and allergenic foods, reducing the level of toxins and restoring proper function to your vital organs. During this phase you will experience a reduction in sugar cravings and an increase in your energy level.

Following this you will move into the maintenance phase, lasting for two weeks, where you start to implement a personalized cleanse diet and lifestyle plan. The final phase involves an 8-week post cleanse meal plan that will help you transition back into the “real world”.

There are three levels in the Total Wellness Cleanse Diet and you are encouraged to choose the one that best suits your needs. Level 1 is a standard whole food diet, level 2 is a raw food diet and level 3 is a green juice feast. You can switch between the different levels during the program, which allows you greater flexibility.

For all three levels there is an emphasis on increasing the intake of green vegetables as juice, green smoothies and salads. Most fruits should be avoided during the cleanse phase, however apples, pears and berries can be consumed in moderation.
