The Girlfriend’s Guide to DETOX!

Do you feel winter has taken a toll on your mood, energy, and waistline? Do symptoms like joint pain, fatigue, bloating and weight gain plague your daily thoughts? Food choices and intake play a more significant role in how people feel than credit is given.

The food and nutrition industries are challenging to navigate, even for someone with extensive education. It seems research and recommendations are constantly changing. Foods and food products are marketed to everyone, no matter the age, social status or education level, even when we are unaware.  Deciphering proper food choices can be frustrating, and fad diets often don’t work.   Consequently, our bodies are taking on the burden of these wrong choices.

Detoxification is how the body eliminates “toxins,” or substances that should not be left in the body. The organs that make up the gastrointestinal tract (GI) oversee the elimination of these substances. However, please understand, times of stress, sickness, intolerance and indulgence, food choices, medications, and other substances we are around and ingest, increase the burden on the GI system. When the liver, gallbladder and other digestive organs struggle to keep up with this burden, toxins are stored in fat cells, the nervous system and brain (hence all of the symptoms).

Detoxification is a trending topic. Many people associate it with fasting, colonics, cleansing or an intestinal purge. On the contrary, a scientific and research-based detoxification system revolves around giving the human GI tract a break. While the Standard American Diet (SAD) often consists of foods that are highly processed, cause inflammatory reactions due to sensitivities and intolerances, are grown with pesticides and herbicides, contain chemically-derived food products or are empty of nutrients, a detox, is easy to follow and allows the body to fall back into balance.

Why should I detox?

If you struggle with any of the following, you will benefit from a detox:

  • Extreme sugar cravings
  • Gastrointestinal disruptions: IBS, constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, bloating
  • Chronic sinus issues or thickness in the throat
  • Overall non-healthy feeling
  • Acne and patches of dermatitis
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Joint pain
  • Extended time of high stress
  • Struggle losing weight
  • Trouble sleeping or sleep disturbances

How will this affect my daily routine?

Detoxifying is easier than most people expect. With the help of a few supplements (included in your detox kit) that are used to support regularity, create a healthy gut ecology and promote detoxification from the proper organs, the majority of changes are made to the diet. With the exception of some foods, an ultra-clean, whole food diet is followed for six days. Hydration, gentle exercise and rest are encouraged throughout the week. When the body is given the proper nutrients, rest and movement, symptoms improve quickly. I often discuss with patients the power, good or bad food, has on our body. As it is the only thing we can control which goes into our body, simple changes to our food choices can have a massive impact on our symptoms and how we feel!  No matter if you struggle with constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas or you are completely regular, negative digestive side effects are NOT expected when using this detox.

The Couri Center, along with many of its employees, are hosting the Girlfriends Guide to Detoxing May 16-May 23. We will use Facebook to help guide you through the detoxification process. Daily detoxification information, recipes, and testimonials from your favorite Couri Center employees will be shared. We will be detoxifying with YOU!

Investing in your health

If you are ready to wipe away winter, feel good again and implement the healthy lifestyle you have been struggling to start, this is the time!

The Couri Center will host a detoxification event beginning May 16. The detox kit includes the use of plant-based shakes, and an ultra-clean, whole food-based diet. A detailed instructional guide that provides clear supplementation and dietary recommendations, as well as the science behind detoxification, is included in each detoxification kit.

How do I get started?

  1. Purchase the detox kit.  This detox process is easy and outside of food choices, it will not interrupt your daily activities. Bonus! Detox kits are discounted ten dollars during the month of May.  If you would like to join us on this detoxification journey, kits are available for purchase at the Couri Center anytime during office hours (8-4:30) for $120.
  2. Like & Follow us on Facebook.  We are completing this together, as a community. To help you prep for the detox, Facebook posts will begin on May 13 . Make sure you have “liked” and ‘followed’ the Couri Center on Facebook!

Since everything is more fun with friends, be sure to invite your girlfriends to join you!  Start the summer of 2019 feeling and looking your best.

NEW OlivDefense™: Cold & Flu Defense

Another way to help fight off colds and flu includes using OlivDefense™.  OliveDefense™ features science-based, patented Immune Guard® plus olive extract and elderberry to support the body’s natural immune defense mechanisms.

It’s that time of year again, the time when you start hearing coughing and sneezing throughout the home and office while a box of tissues is placed conveniently near your computer keyboard.  According to the CDC, people are most contagious during the first 2-3 days of contracting a cold and almost immediately and for about 5 days thereafter after being infected with the flu – even before symptoms develop.  However, there are many actions you can take to prevent the spread of cold and flu viruses at home and work:

  • Wash your hands for at least 15-20 seconds with soap multiple times per day
  • Dry hands with an air dryer or clean paper towel
  • Use a paper towel to open a bathroom door
  • Use hand sanitizer between washing
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, or rubbing your nose
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Get lots of fresh air
  • Exercise regularly and frequently
  • Eat healthy foods like fruits and vegetables
  • Don’t smoke and decrease alcohol consumption
  • Relax – stress can lower immunity
  • Get plenty of sleep (7-9 hours is optimal)
  • Avoid contact with known allergens – allergies affecting the nose or throat may increase the chances of getting a cold or flu

New Couri girl MedPax™ By Dr. Michele Couri, MD, FACOG, ABIHM

Personalized medicine — it is what we do at the Couri Center. From gynecologic care to surgery, from individualized wellness programs to weight loss, from food sensitivity testing to hormone replacement, our number one goal is to deliver the best care to every patient, each and every time. No one size fits all. Individualized care tailored to each patient is the key to success. This is now even more evident in our supplement recommendations for you. We are proud to announce our recent partnering with Xymogen® MedPax™, a nationally known nutraceutical company that is family owned and has been trusted for over twenty years. Known for its innovative, quality supplements, Xymogen’s customer-centered philosophy melds well with ours.

Drawing on my Fellowship education in both Integrative and Functional Medicine and having trained under the world-renowned Dr. Andrew Weil at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, I am proud to announce that I have personally created several customized MedPax™ (individualized daily supplement dosing packs) based on the most common symptoms and conditions I encounter day in and day out in my practice. These Couri girl MedPax™ are available for:

  • Bone Health (Osteopenia and Osteoporosis)
  • Heart Health (elevated cholesterol)
  • Menopause Relief
  • PMS Management
  • Gut Health
  • Mood and Anxiety
  • Stress and Sleep Issues
  • Hair, Skin and Nails
  • Inflammation and Joint Pain
  • Diabetes
  • Athletic Performance

MedPax™ are able to be further customized to each patient’s individual supplement needs to maximize effectiveness and affordability. So, if you have a certain medical issue or constellation of symptoms (other than the ones listed above) that you want resolved, we can customize MedPax™ just for you.

After reviewing your medical history and any pertinent lab work, we will make recommendations for appropriate supplements for you. After we meet with you, we will input our recommendations for your personalized MedPax™ securely online to Xymogen®. You will then receive your supplements shipped directly to your house. What I also love about our new MedPax™:

  • MedPax™ is convenient. You can easily take your nutritional supplements on the go.
  • It takes the guesswork out of organizing and remembering if you took your supplements.
  • MedPax™ clearly tells you when to take your next dose.
  • You don’t have to ever worry about running out. Your MedPax™ can be automatically sent to you every 30 days.

Because both the Couri Center and Xymogen® are committed to reducing the amount of plastics used throughout our businesses, we are thrilled that the use of MedPax™ will eliminate on average the use of 3-5 plastic bottles per individual patient order. With Xymogen’s participation in the United Nations Environment Programme Clean Seas initiative, they strive to significantly decrease their environmental footprint.

If you would like to find out if Couri girl MedPax™ are right for you, please call us to set up an appointment to learn more. Or if you are tired of buying several different bottles and brands of supplements to achieve optimal results, switch to MedPax™ and let us make it easier and more effective for you to achieve your goal.

To Your Health (and to the health of our planet),
