UltraInflamX™ Programme Tips
Below are some tips that make following the UltraInflamX™ programme easier.
• Foods which are most likely to cause allergic and/or sensitivity reactions are excluded from this diet. Do not make substitutions of foods, except as allowed in these instructions or as recommended by your health care practitioner. You should, of course, avoid any listed foods to which you are intolerant or allergic.
• Be sure to drink ALL of the recommended daily servings of UltraInflamX™.
• Select fresh foods whenever you can. If possible, choose organically grown fruits and vegetables to eliminate pesticide and chemical residue consumption. Wash fruit and vegetables thoroughly.
• If you select animal sources of protein, look for free-range or organically raised chicken, turkey or lamb. Choose low-fat versions and prepare by baking, stewing, grilling or stir cooking. Cold-water fish (e.g. salmon, mackerel, halibut) is another excellent source of protein. Avoid shellfish, as it may cause allergic reaction.
• You may continue to take nutritional supplements as recommended by your health care practitioner. In some instances, you may be advised to add fibre or probiotics directly to your UltraInflamX™ to make a healthy shake. As with all supplements it is important to follow the advice of your health care practitioner.
• Use only purified, distilled or mineral water to mix the beverages. Check with your health care practitioner if using fruit juices, as they are high in fructose (fruit sugar) and may not be well tolerated. Diluted organic vegetable juices are generally preferred choices over fruit juices. Avoid fruit drinks, fizzy drinks or cocktail drinks that contain added sugar.
• Remember to drink the recommended amount (at least 2 litres) of pure, filtered water each day.
• Strenuous or prolonged exercise may be reduced during some or all of the programmes. Adequate rest and stress reduction are important to the success of this programme.
