What is the Clean 14 Program?
The NENHS Clean 14 Program is a 2-4 week cleanse that Paul Gerst L.Ac. put together for his Patients. The program consists of professional-grade supplements and a diet that assists the liver and gall-bladder in their function of eliminating toxins from the body, producing and allowing for the smooth flow of bile and digestion of fats. In doing so, the function of the digestive, immune and hormonal systems are all potentially improved.
What should I expect? What benefits may I see?
Expectations are difficult to express as everyone is in a slightly different place with varying sensitivities. Having said that, some experience a “detox response,” or adjustment phase which may consist of worsening of symptoms or slight malaise or mild flu-like symptoms for a few days. Some get an immediate boost of energy and clarity of thought, while others may feel little at all. Some of the benefits of doing the NENHS Clean 14 Program are: weight-loss, reduced cravings, clear thinking, improved energy, better quality of sleep, improved digestion and more.

Read through booklet to get a feel for the diet. Make a meal-plan and shopping list so you can be fully prepared to assure success. It is important to have options ready for eating away from the home (carry healthy snacks/meals with you and know what restaurants will cook to your specifications and use quality ingredients).
Decide which meal you struggle with the most; eating poorly, skipping that meal, etc. Take the LifeCore Complete (meal replacement) in place of that meal. No other food is necessary at that meal for the next 2 weeks.
Take the PhytoCore 3 capsules, 2x/day with breakfast and dinner for the next 3 weeks.
Take Oxygenics 1-2x/day with meals for the next 4 weeks.
Take Bromezyme 2 capsules around 9 pm for next 4 weeks. (This should be on an empty stomach, no less than 2 hours after eating! Dinner should be eaten no later than 7 pm and no snacks after dinner!)
Take Elmnex 3 caps 2x/day until the bottle is gone. You may take this with Bromezyme.
In a nutshell, the diet removes the top 10 food allergens from your diet. Simply, this means that you are eating a whole-foods, easy-to-digest diet for the next 2-4 weeks. For two weeks it is important to not cheat. Follow the diet to the letter and after 2 weeks, you can start “relaxing” the diet and adding some of the foods back in, SLOWLY. It is important not to just jump back to what you were doing prior to the cleanse (unless you were already on a mostly whole foods diet, of course). You are encouraged to use this as a transition to healthier eating. Reduce the amount of life-less, non-organic and junk-type food in your life. You will better resist stress and disease and simply function and feel better!
Please do NOT do a cleanse if you are pregnant, have cancer or are receiving treatment for any other serious medical condition! It is always best to consult with your Dr or Natural Health Practitioner before doing a cleanse.
Best of luck and here’s to your health!
