14 Day JumpStart Program
Dr. Mary's 14-Day JUMPSTART Program
aka: a "detox" that will change your life

as experienced by Laura L. (volunteer guinea pig)


Last fall, during a routine appointment with Dr. Mary, I found myself expressing the same complaints I'd had for months:
"I feel sluggish."
"I eat well and exercise regularly, but I can't lose any weight."
"I'll fall asleep if I don't have my afternoon caffeine fix."
"My shoulder injury just won't heal."

Dr. Mary explained the benefits of detoxifying our bodies and volunteered to write a program if I was interested. Not only was I interested, I was chomping at the bit. In anticipation, I spent the next week easing myself off coffee and Diet Pepsi. I'd had caffeine withdrawal headaches before, and I definitely wanted to spare myself as best I could. When the Jumpstart was written, Dr. Mary and I sat down and she shared with me the healing benefits of organic, macrobiotic eating. I have to admit I was a little unsure at first, but Dr. Mary kept it simple and reassured me I'd be happy I did it. I left her office that day with my eating plan, my supplements, and a mental commitment.

My next stop was Lakewinds, where I purchased all my produce and some other items that I never knew existed. I had always considered myself a "healthy" eater, but this definitely rose the bar, so to speak, and I got quite an education that day from both Dr. Mary and the Lakewinds workers. I was still feeling a bit overwhelmed as I unpacked my groceries, but I woke up excited the next morning.

In all honesty, that excitement didn't last long. Days 1-3 were a bit uncomfortable. Not only was I completely changing all my eating habits, I still got the dreaded withdrawal headache that I knew I just had to ride out. It wasn't dibilitating--just annoying. The first few days passed quickly, luckily, and I found myself looking forward to trying the new recipes and realizing how the "clean' nutritious food was fueling my body. I went from whole wheat to millet, lentils and mung beans. I added ingredients like kombu and chia seeds. I discovered I actually like vegetables like kale and daikon radish...who knew?

After the first week I was down 7.5#, which was a pleasant surprise as the weight loss wasn't my primary goal. The best part was that I felt fabulous! My energy level stayed strong through the whole day--no dips and spikes like it used to. My stomach was flat--no bloating and distention. My digestive system was working perfectly--no heartburn, no gas, no disgusting bowel movements!

By the end of the 14 days, I'd lost 9.5# and wanted to keep going! Dr. Mary and I discussed how I could add in some other foods and still keep in alignment with my newly adopted eating style. 14# literally melted off of me in a month and I still felt great.

It's been four months since I did the Jumpstart. So what's changed?

Well, for starters, I've been caffeine-free ever since. I honestly never thought I could kick the habit. Diet Pepsi, which I used to crave, is now a thing of the past, and on a rare occasion I drink decaf coffee. I found that my caffeine addiction was reinforced by my habits. Every morning I'd put a pot of coffee on (and drink the whole thing myself), at lunch I'd drink a soda, and every time I drove past a coffee shop I felt compelled to stop in. All of those bad habits are gone.

I've added meat and dairy back into my diet, but only moderately, and it suits me fine. I still have an Accell shake for at least one of my meals every day because of the power packed nutrition it provides. I eat organic whenever possible, consume a wide variety of vegetables, and drink plenty of water.

I've commited to doing the Jumpstart Program twice a year: Spring and Fall. It feels good to feel good.
