Like many people I have battled the scale most of my life. I could easily blame genetics when truthfully, lack of discipline and weight management are largely the culprit. Sharing my personal journey isn’t easy, but I’m hoping it will make a difference in at least one person’s life. I first started seeing Dr. Tereo in 2007 specifically for alignments. After a short time, I realized Dr. Tereo offers the services and tools that could propel me to better overall wellness.

Without any sense of judgment, I had my questions answered. I started an exercise program that was entirely different from what I’d been doing: more weightlifting, less cardio. I remember telling him “Okay, I’m going to trust you. I’m going to do it your way.”

I was directed to this very website to learn different exercises including structure and form that are easy-to-follow and can be customize. I started losing body fat and became less concerned with the number on the scale. Another crazy thought? Not at all. Find the answers to BMI, Body Mass Index, on this site. And hang on, I eat more throughout the day.

Like I mentioned, I’m just like you. After a few years of staying consistent with the program, I allowed life’s demands to get in the way of my progress. I regained the weight I’d lost and then some. Here’s what I have to offer in hopes of reaching that person/those people that struggle. I’ve chosen a lifestyle change rather than a short-term diet. I’m back at the gym and rediscovered how much I enjoy that time. Find what you enjoy, weight-lifting isn’t for everyone – you might enjoy hiking, yoga, Pilate, swimming or cycling.

I was borderline diabetic, occasionally I would feel my heart race while I was in a sedate state. If my parents’ longevity is any indication on the length of my life, then I needed to make changes. I lost a considerable amount of weight but reached a plateau. That’s when I noticed the brochure for the 21-Day Purification and Weight Management program. For me, it’s been life-changing. The purification program is a smart detox. It’s not about juicing or only drinking broth for a week.

The 21-day program includes a Standard Process supplement kit, to support eating food that provides the nutrients you need while eliminating all processed foods, sugar, dairy, and allergens such as nuts, seeds, soy, and grains. I’m here to tell you the program was eye-opening. When we eat the right foods and supplements, our bodies don’t crave. Without trying the program, it may sound restrictive; it’s not. I was rarely hungry, and food became what it’s supposed to be: fuel for my body.

At the end of the program Dr. Tereo re-evaluated my heart, weight, and measurements. My goal was to discover my food sensitivities and weight loss was a happy side-effect. I lost 3% body fat, and 13 lbs; my BMI dropped to just shy of a healthy range. While I write this, I’ve completed the program a second time, and again dropped additional body fat, another 13 lbs. and am within a healthy BMI range. Results will vary from person to person, but provided you follow the program, you’re guaranteed improvement. 

In addition to the exercise program, I’ve worked with Dr. Tereo on staying aligned and ensuring that I’m taking the right supplements. I’m entering the next phase of my life, in the best physical condition of my life. It’s hard to put into words how good it feels to feel good! 

Allow Dr. Tereo to evaluate you. You’ll find that with the right program, you’ll have more energy to do the things you truly enjoy.

This is a genuine and unsolicited endorsement of Tereo Chiropractic. I encourage you to allow Dr. Tereo an opportunity to give you guidance towards the right path for you. Through his expertise in chiropractic and personalized wellness and nutrition services, I’m confident that if you follow his prescription, you will feel better.

21 Days to Better Health

21 Days to Better Health Purification Program

The 21 Days to Better Health Purification Program is a structured program that helps to cleanse and build healthy lifestyle habits. This program purifies, nourishes, and helps maintain healthy weight.

The program comes with a helpful guide which explains detoxification and how the body transitions during a cleanse. The guide also helps to keep you on track during your journey to better health.

How does purification work?

The 21 Days to Better Health Purification Program isn’t just a cleanse diet. It’s a structured program that brings healthy lifestyle habits into focus.

It's designed to purify, nourish, and help you maintain a healthy body weight by eating whole foods, exercising, drinking nutritious shakes, and taking supplements made with whole food and other ingredients.*

The menu includes a varied abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits for the first 10 days, with select proteins added on day 11. The supplements support the body’s ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. This promotes a state that allows for toxin release.*

Why is toxin release important?

If you aren’t consuming the recommended amount of nutrients, it can affect the normal functioning of your body's detoxification pathways. Naturally occurring toxins that build up in the body can adversely impact one’s health and well-being.

The 21 Days to Better Health Purification Program supports the body’s natural toxin-metabolism processes.

Intended health and vitality purification report:

  • Better digestion
  • Less bloating
  • Improved weight management
  • Clearer skin
  • Shinier hair

How do I determine my toxic load?

Your toxic load is the amount of toxins that your body must process. Following is a quiz to help assess your current toxic load:

  • Do you eat unprocessed foods?
  • Do you eat non-organic fruits and vegetables?
  • Do you eat meat that is not organic?
  • Do you eat yogurt that uses artificial sweeteners?
  • Do you drink soda?
  • Do the foods you eat have preservatives, additives, or sweeteners added?
  • Do you eat fast food or order out regularly?
  • Do you barbecue on grills often?
  • Do you drink coffee regularly?
  • Do you drink alcohol?

If the majority of your answers are "yes," then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load. Beyond diet, many external factors, such as personal care products, cleaners, and pollution, add to your load. For exact measures a more comprehensive questionnaire to help understand your toxic load.
