Dr. Narson’s 21-Day Purification Program


If you’re anything like me, you ended up on this nutrition page because you want something better for yourself. In 1999, I knew I needed to do something about my own health. After a scary visit to my personal family physician and a lot of research, I found the 21-Day Purification Program from Standard Process. It changed my life!


In 1999, with a daughter on the way, I was teaching my 3-year old son to ride a bike without training wheels. It was then that I realized I was sadly out of shape and unhealthy. After running behind him holding his bike for only 1/2 a block, I was out of breath and sweating profusely. My son learned how to ride his bike that day and I learned that if I wanted to be able to teach him to drive a car one day, I needed to get some help and make some changes quickly! 

I went to my family doctor and after some testing, the news wasn’t pretty. 

  • Weight: 218 (I’m 5’11”)
  • Blood pressure: 150/100
  • Cholesterol: 270
  • Triglycerides: 305

On his prescription pad he wrote down the name of a nutrition book, tore the page off, and handed it to me. He said “I’m giving you four months to fix yourself, otherwise, I’m putting you on medications or you’ll be dead within 10 years.” So with that, I began reading. When I finished that book, I read another, and another. In total I had read over 20 books on nutrition. When I realized what healthy eating was and what it wasn’t, I began to notice some common trends: eat good quality protein and lots of plants. In other words, my research revealed that following a paleo (pal-ee-oh) diet would be ideal for my health. This is a diet that closely mimics the hunter-gatherer diet of our ancestors over 50,000-to-1,000,000 years ago!

As I was implementing my own paleo diet, I happened to be at an educational seminar on the topic of good health and wellness. One of the classes was focused on nutrition, so I attended. What I learned changed the course of my life and my health. I learned about a company called Standard Process that produces a 21-Day Purification Program, based on the paleo diet, with the aid of nutritional compounds and nutritional shakes to assist the body with detoxification, cleansing, reducing inflammation and weight loss. So, I signed up!

After completing the 21-Day Purification Program I had my weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides measured again. There was a significant improvement over my initial measurements:

  • Weight: 197.5 lbs
  • Blood pressure: 126/84
  • Cholesterol: 190
  • Triglycerides: 150

This dramatic change occurred in only 21 days! 

Being a Chiropractic Sports Medicine Physician, many patients and friends were surprised by the dramatic change they saw in me and asked how I did it. After a few weeks, I found myself leading a group of 50 people through the Standard Process 21-day purification program. Since then, I have been leading my clients – individuals, groups of friends, spouses, co-workers and corporate “team building” groups through the program, with incredible results. 

So if you’re like me, you are looking for something or some way to change and improve your life. You want to feel better and you believe the way to start is by changing your diet. I agree with you

Why The 21-Day Purification Program Over Others?

The reason why I chose this purification program is because:

  1. It’s one of the simplest, easy-to-do programs I’ve found available;
  2. It’s made of all natural WHOLE FOOD concentrates, supplements and shakes, not laboratory processed chemicals like many other programs provide;
  3. This IS NOT A JUICE FAST!!!! You get to eat REAL FOOD throughout the program (no starving necessary!);
  4. It was designed by physicians who actually advise patients in their practices about good nutrition
  5. It teaches you how to eat healthfully so you can, in turn teach your family and others about it;
  6. It is backed by science. Yes, this program has science behind it!

A nutritional program improved lipid profiles and weight in 28 chiropractic 

patients: a retrospective case series

Powell JP1, Leonard JS.

In 2008 Powell & Leonard followed 28 patients who went through the “21-day nutritional intervention” program. Their conclusions stated: “…a nutritional purification intervention program emphasizing fruit and vegetable consumption, energy restriction and nutritional supplements reduces serum lipids and weight”. 

The key points to take away from this study are that the researchers found this program not only helped the patients lose weight, it also reduced their cholesterol and triglycerides! 

Why Purify?

Nutritional purification is also known as detoxification or cleansing. Purification can help you remove natural toxins from your body and help maintain a healthy weight. Many if not most people will actually lose weight on a program like this. We are exposed to external toxins on a daily basis. These include pollutants, pesticides and chemicals. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts as a result of normal metabolic function. Although your body is designed to rid itself of these toxins naturally, it can become overburdened. Purification offers your body additional support to expel and metabolize these toxins and manage your weight, which is important to maintaining your health and vitality.


I classify food into two main categories (1) Foods that reduce inflammation and (2) foods that cause inflammation. While most people choose to do a purification program to lose weight and cleanse themselves of toxins, this program, and the healthy way of eating that goes a long with it, reduces inflammation. You may even call it an “anti-inflammatory diet.” You may have heard of an inflamed knee or shoulder, but the cells and tissues of your body can also become inflamed at the cellular level from the different toxins we breath, drink or eat in our foods. It’s not just the chemicals our bodies encounter, but some of the foods produced in factories (instead of farms) nowadays cause a state of inflammation in your body. This can cause dysfunction, contribute to the aches and pains you feel and contribute to many of the ailments from which you suffer. 

The 21-Day Purification Program promotes a healthy anti-inflammatory diet while providing you with nutritious shakes and nutritional compounds (supplements) to assist your body in reducing your toxic load and reducing your state of inflammation.

How Do You Know If You Need A Program Like This?

Well, let’s take a look at some of the things in your life that may be contributing to your toxic load and inflammation. Take a moment to answer these questions:

  • Do you, or have you eaten processed foods?
  • Do you eat non-organic fruits and vegetables?
  • Do you eat meat that is not organic or grass fed?
  • Do you eat poultry (chicken or turkey) that is not organic or free range?
  • Do you eat fish that is farm raised rather than wild caught?
  • Do you, or have you ever used artificial sweeteners?
  • Do you drink soda (diet or regular)?
  • Do the foods you eat have preservatives, additives, dyes or sweeteners added?
  • Do you eat fast foods and/or eat out regularly?
  • Do you charbroil or grill foods?
  • Do you drink coffee regularly?
  • Do you drink sports drinks like Gatorade?
  • Do you drink alcohol?
  • Do you drink tap water?
  • Have you been on antibiotics recently?
  • Do you take any prescription or non-prescription medications?

​If the majority of your answers are YES, then it is likely that your diet contributes significantly to your toxic load and inflammation. Beyond diet, many external toxins such as personal care products, cleaners and pollution add to your toxic load and inflammation. If you answered YES to a majority of these questions, you should seriously consider doing the 21-Day Purification Program!

How Does The Program Work?

The Standard Process Purification Program stimulates specific detoxification organs in your body-the liver, kidney and intestines. With help from these organs, your toxic load can decrease and your body can concentrate its energy on purification and reducing inflammation. This can help you achieve optimal health by cleansing your body from the inside out. 

Using nutritious Whole Food shakes and nutritional compounds combined with organic foods you purchase at you local market, and with guidance from the program booklet and myself, you embark on a journey of healthy eating while bringing your body back into natural balance. 

Program Basics

The 21-Day Purification Program includes eating whole organic and unprocessed foods, taking plant-based whole food supplements and drinking plenty of water. You will eat a variety of vegetables, fruit & plant based protein for the first 10 days, with select clean sourced animal proteins added on days 11 through 21. A vegan version of this program is also available.

The Purification Supplements

My philosophy is that delicious, wholesome healthful foods are the stars of the show. However, when doing a purification-detox-cleanse program, supplements are necessary to help support your various “detox systems” during the program.

SP Cleanse

SP Cleanse combines 20 unique whole food and botanical ingredients designed to support the body’s normal toxin-removal processes.

  • Supports healthy kidney, liver, and gallbladder function

How does SP Complete Dairy Free support health?

SP Complete Dairy Free offers essential nutrients to support the proper functioning of the body’s systems. Rice protein is highly bioavailable. It also provides a non-dairy source of amino acids important in preserving muscle mass. Flaxseed promotes healthy elimination.*

How does SP Complete Dairy Free provide antioxidant activity?

It contains a combination of grape seed extracts (including Masquelier’s® Original OPC) that offers a high percentage and quality of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs). Cruciferous vegetables, like kale and Brussels sprouts, contain phytochemicals that can stimulate enzymatic activity which support the body’s normal detoxification processes.*

SP Green Food

SP Green Food provides a simple way to supplement the diet with concentrated dried buckwheat leaf and juice, brussels sprout powder, kale powder, dried barley grass juice and alfalfa powder 

  • Promotes healthy liver function
  • Provides antioxidant activity
  • Supports overall cellular health

  • Supports the body’s normal toxin-elimination function

Whole Food Fiber

Whole Food Fiber is a good source of fiber from nutrient-rich whole foods

  • Contains both soluble and insoluble fiber
  • Supports healthy bowel function
  • Promotes regular intestinal motility and elimination
  • Supports healthy epithelial cells in the bowel
  • Provides food for beneficial microorganisms in the lower gastrointestinal (GI) tract
  • Supports the immune system

How does Whole Food Fiber support health?

Fiber is an essential part of any healthy diet, although most of us don’t get nearly enough. In fact, the average American consumes only 15 grams of fiber per day, while the recommended amount for adults is between 25 and 38 grams per day. Dietary fiber is indigestible complex carbohydrates found in plant cells. It can be soluble (dissolves in water) or insoluble (cannot be dissolved in water); both kinds offer important health benefits. Increasing your intake of insoluble dietary fiber can promote bowel regularity, while increasing your intake of soluble fiber can support healthy lipid and glucose levels already within a normal range. Whole Food Fiber provides a good source of fiber.*

How does this support bowel regularity & a healthy gastrointestinal environment?

Healthy fiber intake provides bulk and softens the stool to promote bowel movement and regularity. Fiber intake also supports a healthy balance of GI flora as it promotes an environment for growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.*

How does Whole Food Fiber provide immune system support?

The prebiotic properties of oat fiber and beet fiber support a healthy environment for the growth of beneficial gut microorganisms for GI-based immune system support.*
