Dr. Oz 3 Day Cleanse Meals and Supplements

by Colleen Russell

In April, Dr. Oz introduced his audience to the energy-boosting 3 Day Jumpstart Cleanse created by Dr. Alejandro Junger. We were immediately intriegued by the simplicity of this cleanse and the ability for the average working American to complete its short course. Peaceful Planet immediately posted a supplement guide to assist our customers in selecting the protein powder, digestive enymes, and vitamins required to begin the 3 Day Jumpstart Detox. We quickly shipped out products to excited shoppers who were ready to jumpstart their digestive system and get back their energy. Then, we sat back and waited for the reviews to come.

So…Does the 3 Day Jumpstart Detox Work?
Yes! The overwhelming majority of our clients who embarked upon this Dr. Oz-inspired cleanse were thrilled with the results. Most reported a noticable energy boost, significant weight loss, and an end to uncomfortable belly bloat.

Were there any side effects of the 3 Day Cleanse?
I hesitate to call them side effects, but there are some potentially unpleasant effects associated with participating in any digestive cleanse. The 3 Day Detox was no different. As their bodies expeled toxins and purged their digestive tracts and other organ systems of unwanted bulk, some detox clients experienced a few short days of mild discomfort. These effects ranged from caffeine-withdrawal headaches to stomach upset to cramping and moodiness. In most cases, these concerns dissipated by the third day of the cleanse.

Is there a Specific Diet Plan for the Dr. Junger 3 Day Jumpstart Cleanse?
While there isn’t a specific diet plan to acompany the supplement recommendations for the Dr. Junger 3 Day Jumpstart Cleanse, there are dietary restrictions as well as parameters outlined for meal-planning. Because there has been some confusion and many questions asked about choosing food for the 3 Day Detox, the following is Peaceful Planet’s streamlined 3 Day Detox do’s and don’t’s list as well as a sample meal plan to follow over the course of the cleanse.

Rules for Meal Planning While on the Dr. Oz 3 Day Jumpstart Detox:
Breakfast each day should be two supplements and a prebiotic shake. Lunch should include three supplements and a meal that includes vegetables and your choice of grains, beans, or meat. Dinner should include two supplements and a meal that includes vegetables and your choice of grains, beans, or meat. It is recommended that there are no snacks between meals in order to give the digestive system time to heal. At meal time, eat until you are full. Don’t worry too much about portion size; use this time to start listening to your body, knowing its cues, and understanding what full and hungry really are.

  1. Can I do the cleanse while taking OTC Prilosec? I am in the process of weaning myself off of it. I have had tests to confirm I don’t need it so want to get off of it ASAP. Will the cleanse work while still on it? Because it blocks acid production…which is needed to digest food…I was wondering if I should so the cleanse now..or wait til I wean myself off of it.

    • Hi Susie,
      You are safe to start your detox now. Stopping a proton pump inhibitor like Prilosec, as you know, has the potential to wreak havoc on the digestive system. Since the medication has been blocking regular production of acid and digestive enzymes, your body needs to slowly reacclimate to normal digestive function. Weaning yourself off should be done slowly, so that you do not cause a wave of secondary health concerns.

      My standard recommendation would be to hold off on making any changes while weaning yourself off of a medication and to bring yourself as close to normal as possible before starting a detox plan. This particular plan, though, incorporates several natural health tools that may really benefit you.

      I am assuming that you began taking the Prilosec to combat symptoms of acid reflux and that testing has revealed that you are not suffering from an ulcer or acid erosion. You are now in a position where you have some gut repair to do.

      Get off the Prilosec as soon as possible. While you finish weaning yourself off, infuse your diet with coconut oil. It is an all-natural antimicrobal and antibiotic; a “good fat” that will help heal the lining of your digestive system and purge it of contaminants. It also does a great job of coating the stomach. Manuka honey is also an amazing superfood with powerful antibiotic effects. We carry Perfect Coconut Oil and Honeymark Manuka Honey in the store, both of which come highly recommended. This should help you decrease your dosage even faster and with less digestive upset than simply cutting the dose.

      The 3 day detox incorporates digestive enzymes, probiotics, and plant protein powder; three products that come highly recommended for acid reflux, erosion, and ulcer. I can’t think of a better way to heal the body from the damage done by proton pump inhibitors than this detox.
