Cleanse to Purify, Nourish and Maintain a Healthy Body

The 21-day Standard Process Cleanse is offered at ilumina and helps in purifying, nourishing, and maintaining a healthy body and weight.  

Why do I need purification?

  • Stuffy head
  • Fatigue or difficulty sleeping
  • Digestion and other gastrointestinal problems
  • Food cravings and weight gain
  • Reduce mental clarity
  • Low libido
  • Joint and tendon issues
  • Lusterless skin


Even when eating a clean diet we still are exposed to toxins and it is important that we support the body in eliminating those impurities. The Standard Process purification program is a structured program that helps your body purify and rebuild from the inside out. The program is based on eating whole food, organic (when possible), and unprocessed food, taking supplements with whole food ingredients, and drinking plenty of water. The program calls for eating a variety of vegetables, fruits, legumes, pseudo grains and healthy oils and fats.

To avoid symptoms of withdrawal during the cleanse and lower cravings having regular acupuncture treatments are essential, using acupuncture to support the body thought the process can ensure a smoother 21 days and a positive outcome.
