How a 7 Day Detox can Change Your Life with Dr. Alejandro Junger
Founder of the Clean Program and Author of both, Clean, and his latest, Clean 7, Dr. Alejandro Junger, joins me this week to share the power of an elimination diet, his 5 R’s to live a healthy life, and how to detox not just your nutrition but your environment and habits too.
Join us in this podcast episode as Rob and Dr. Junger discuss:
- His 5 R’s to living a healthier life: Remove, Reinoculation, Restore, Repair, and Relaxation.
- How to clean out your kitchen and start eating fresh for your health.
- Steps to start removing toxins from your gut, environment, and even thoughts.
- What it means if your body isn’t properly sweating.
- What foods and supplements you should consume during an elimination diet.
- How to stay anchored in the present moment no matter what you’re doing.
We also had a good talk about a question from one of my clients, “How can I heal my eczema?”
Clean 7 by Dr. Alejandro Junger
The New York Times best-selling doctor and author of Clean shows us that it doesn’t matter where you live, how old you are, or what symptoms you suffer from, in seven days, you can change the course of your health forever.
The culmination of over 30 years of research, education, and practice, Dr. Alejandro Junger’s revolutionary, seven-day program is based around the core principles of functional medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and intermittent fasting. Each one of these practices alone can have positive and lasting effects, but when used together, they propel the body to health, weight-loss, symptom-reversal, and restoration.
The air we breathe, the water we drink and bathe in, the skin products we use, the detergents we clean with, the medications we take, but mostly the foods we eat, are loaded with toxic chemicals that cause all kinds of dysfunctions. We know this, but we feel powerless to control the effects – constipation, body aches and pains, allergies, migraines, stubborn weight, sleeplessness, depression, and anxiety, to name a few. In time and left unabated, these symptoms develop into full blown diseases, many of them life-altering, but even in the best-case scenario, they leave us uncomfortable and unwell. CLEAN 7 is the medically-proven seven-day answer to this toxic overload. The one-week program you’ll discover in this audiobook offers day-by-day, hour-by-hour guidance with easy-to-follow meal plans and delicious recipes that guarantee success.
About Dr. Alejandro Junger
Founder of the Clean Program, Dr. Alejandro Junger was born in Uruguay. He graduated from medical school there in 1990 and moved to New York City for his postgraduate training. The drastic change in lifestyle and diet resulting from his move to New York City soon showed up as irritable bowel syndrome and depression.
Becoming a patient of the system he was practicing was such a shock, that it started his journey in search of an alternative solution to his health problems. His findings are the subject of his first book, “Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself”, where Dr. Junger describes how he became aware of the toxicity of our planet. “Clean” is a manual for readers to learn how to turn on and work with their own detoxification systems to restore and maintain optimal health.
