It’s also important to keep taking any pharmaceutical medication’s that you may have prescribed by your doctor.

Otherwise, just remember to take other supplements and medications half an hour away from your Brett Elliott herbal programs.

Q. I’m concerned about losing too much weight doing the detox program becuase I find it hard to put on weight so wondering how this would still be OK for me please?

A. If you find it hard to put on weight and are considering the detox program, it’s important to note that the primary goal of the detox program is to cleanse the body rather than to promote weight gain or loss. The detox program is designed to be the starting point before any other programs and is combined with the BodiTune for 14 days. During this period, most people experience weight loss, typically between three and 6 kilograms, as the program involves a diet of fruits and vegetables and aims to get the body moving food through quickly. However, since your concern is difficulty in gaining weight, it’s crucial to approach the detox on the gentle 30-day plan as then you can eat some fish, chicken, and even a couple. of eggs each week to keep your protein levels high. It also important to remember that there is no limit on the quantity of food you can eat on the program, so you should not need to worry about weight loss if you eat ample food. Weight gain could be achieved as a long-term result of improving digestive health, so it’s possible you can benefit from the detox program in this regard as a side bonus effect. I hope that helps answer your question.

Are all the ingredients and flavours in your products natural?

We use natural (plant extract-based) and ‘nature identical’ ingredients, so I think there is only one ‘nature identical’ ingredient being the Stevia extract called Rebaudioside C. You can see what that is here https://drugs.ncats.io/substance/FE0M8Z5L2E

Other than that everything in our products is direct from nature, plant-based.

Blood Tests before and after the Detox Program

Q: Are there any blood tests I can get before or after the detox program?

A: there are a series of blood tests you could get after completing the detox program to show the results. These include:

  • Liver Function Enzyme Tests
  • Kidney Function Tests (GFR)
  • Inflammatory markers (CRP)
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Blood sugar profile (HBA1C)

I suffer with Food Allergy, Intolerance or sensitivity

Q: What is your advice on dealing with Salicylate/Dairy/wheat/nightshade sensitivities/allergies?

Is Taro OK on your programs?

My question is about Taro, we grow this organically and wonder if there are any benefits or pitfalls to this vegetable during the Detox, BodiClenz, BodiTune or Slim programs.

Taro is OK in place of Potato for example, but we don’t usually recommend Potato on our Detox or Slimming programs in general because of the high calorie/carb value and the fact that it can be a little bloating. In saying that, a little taro used once a week, during a maintenance plan, will not cause any problems at all.

Here is some further info on Taro that you might find useful:

Benefits of Taro

  1. Nutrient-Rich: Taro is a good source of fiber, vitamins (especially vitamin C and B vitamins), minerals (including potassium, magnesium, and iron), and antioxidants. These nutrients contribute to overall health, including heart health, immune system support, and digestive health.
  2. Low Glycemic Index: Compared to other starchy vegetables, taro has a relatively low glycemic index (GI), meaning it causes a slower rise in blood glucose levels. This makes it a good carbohydrate source for managing blood sugar levels.
  3. Gluten-Free: Taro is naturally gluten-free, making it a suitable carbohydrate option for those with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease.
  4. Versatile: Taro can be used in a variety of dishes, ranging from savory to sweet. It can be boiled, baked, fried, or mashed, similar to potatoes.

Pitfalls of Taro

  1. Oxalates: Taro contains oxalates, which can contribute to kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals. Those with kidney problems or a history of kidney stones may need to limit their intake of taro.
  2. Allergic Reactions: Although rare, some individuals may experience allergic reactions to taro.
  3. Toxicity When Raw: Raw taro contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can be toxic and cause irritation to the mouth, throat, and digestive tract. It’s important never to eat taro raw; cooking it thoroughly neutralizes these compounds.
  4. Caloric Content: Being a starchy vegetable, taro is relatively high in calories compared to non-starchy vegetables. Portion control is key when including it in a balanced diet, especially for those watching their calorie intake.

Growing taro organically is beneficial as it ensures that the vegetable is free from synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, potentially enhancing its nutritional profile and reducing exposure to harmful chemicals. Organic farming practices also tend to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
