If you are looking for a good weight loss program, I do recommend ORENDA’s Clean/Burn/Shape program. Check it out. Very high quality, and with enough variety to maintain all necessary nutrients, based on whole foods but adding thermogenic (fat burning) ingredients. There’s a lot about this program on the ORENDA website.

What I want to focus on here is the AWAKEN/CLEANSE/FEED program, which is truly unique and designed to facilitate deep detox. You get a discount if you buy the whole system, called the ORENDA ULTIMATE PACK.

Deep cleaning involves improving immune function. Our immune system is mostly white blood cells, and the lymphatic channels. White blood cells contain sacks of enzymes, called lysosomes, which break down any “foreign” tissue in the body, including parasites, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungal overgrowth, and undigestible food. About 75% of the burden on our immune system over our lifetime occurs across the “tube” (gastro-intestinal tract). The other 25% is through the nose and into the lungs.

Epigenetics is the study of genetic variations that are caused within an individual, by external or environmental factors that can switch genes on and off, as opposed to changes in DNA sequence which happen as genes are passed down to the next generation. One of the most potent ways epigenetics can change is through nutrition.
