When I found myself at my “rock bottom,” I had PCOS, Crohn’s disease, heavy metal toxicity, insulin resistance, hair loss, acne, and no energy. As I was uncovering my health issues, I realized all of the symptoms led back to the same two problems: Toxins and Insulin Resistance.
In order to build my body back up, I had to detox it first.
What is Detoxification
Detoxification, often referred to simply as “detox,” is a process aimed at removing potentially harmful substances or toxins from the body.
Some believe detoxification is controversial because the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms, primarily carried out by the liver and kidneys, already work to eliminate waste and toxins. However, the amount of toxins and radiation we are facing today is exponentially higher than what our ancestors dealt with and is too high for our natural detoxifying organs to handle.
How is Insulin Resistance and Toxicity Connected?
The high levels of toxins in our environment are making Insulin Resistance worse by inhibiting the function of the liver.
The liver is responsible for not only detoxification, but also for protein and fat metabolism, thyroid function, metabolism, and processing of fructose and glucose. Therefore, if the liver is backed up by toxins, then Insulin Resistance will be worse; if Insulin Resistance is present, liver function is compromised. It’s a vicious cycle.
Insulin Resistance manifests into different metabolic diseases within the body; all of these conditions stem from one root problem.
Diabetes is Insulin Resistance of the Liver;
Heart Disease is Insulin Resistance of the Heart;
PCOS is Insulin Resistance of the Ovaries;
Alzheimer’s is Insulin Resistance of the Brain.
Signs You Need a Detox
Common signs you need a detox are:
- Unexplained weight gain
- Low energy
- Brain fog
- Unexplained lack of motivation
- Water retention
- Anger, depression, or anxiety
- Hair loss
- Skin breakouts
- Joint pain
- Bumps on the back of your arms
- Weakened immune system
- Systemic inflammation
Reasons to Complete a Detox
Our detoxification pathways are working overtime and become “clogged” and backed up. Toxins include:
Heavy Metals. Lead, mercury, and aluminum are just a few toxins that are finding their way into our bodies through our water, air, and food. Heavy metals can cause neurological effects, gastrointestinal issues, cardiovascular effects, kidney damage, liver damage, respiratory issues, bone health issues, infertility, immune system suppression, cancer, and chronic health conditions.
Radiation. Independent of food consumption, radiation from non-ionizing and ionizing radiation increases Insulin Resistance in addition to altering the nervous system, the endocrine system and the hormonal system. Radiation also increases oxidative stress and free radical damage. The amount of radiation we are exposed to through 5G, smart meters, computers, smartphones, and all technology has increased exponentially over the last 3 years. To worsen the situation, the Fukushima nuclear power plant began releasing treated radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean in August 2023.
Dietary Toxins. The toxins in our food supply and water supply have increased exponentially. Not just the GMOs and glyphosate coming from our crops, but there are dioxins, highly toxic compounds produced by industrial farming processes found in conventionally raised animals. They are stored in the fat tissue and accumulate in the food chain. Furthermore, the halogens, which include fluoride, bromide, and chlorine, are in the water and food supply. All of these toxins not only clog the liver but also clog the iodine receptor sites in all 100 trillion cells of the body including the thyroid.
Processed Foods. Processed foods manufactured by Big Food Corporations have negatively impacted the health of so many and are the leading culprit of Insulin Resistance and Toxicity. Because processed foods are filled with extra fructose, inflammatory seed oils, GMO grains, and artificial sweeteners while the natural fiber has been extracted from them, processed foods are accelerating the development of insulin resistance and clogging detoxification pathways in the body. This is a recipe for a health disaster.With 62 percent of the average adult’s diet coming from processed foods, rates of Insulin Resistance and Type 2 Diabetes have skyrocketed.
Factors increasing Insulin Resistance work in the following ways:
- Fructose. Fructose is not metabolized like regular sugar or glucose; instead, it is converted directly into liver fat and not used for energy. In fact, fructose LOWERS ATP which is cellular energy.
- Extraction of Fiber. Fiber is nature’s way of slowing the rise of blood glucose and insulin with foods; in processed foods, without the fiber, the blood sugar spikes, causing more insulin to be needed and leading to Insulin Resistance quicker.
- Seed Oils. Seed oils cause inflammation in the cells and lead to the cells becoming “resistant” to insulin. These oils stay in the body for over a year. They include canola oil, corn oil, soybean oil, rice bran oil, safflower oil, sunflower oil, grape seed oil, and peanut oil.
- Artificial Sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners may not have calories, but they do increase the cravings for sugar and more processed foods, leading to overconsumption of those foods that lead to Insulin Resistance.
- Hyper Palatable. Processed foods blunt your normal taste buds due to being extremely hyper palatable; this leads to overeating high sugar foods. In nature, fats and carbs don’t come packaged together except for nuts and dairy; these two foods are meant to “fatten up” the animal. On the other hand, processed foods combine high amounts of sugar, salt and fat together, leading to food cravings and addiction.
- Emulsifiers. Processed foods utilize emulsifiers to extend their shelf life; however, they destroy the mucosal lining of the gut that measures the incoming nutrients and registers satiety. In other words, emulsifiers kill the signaling of CCK hormone to the brain to shut off appetite.
- Gluten and Grains. Gluten and grains are not only stealing nutrients from our bodies, they also cause Leaky Gut due to the toxicity of glyphosate and GMOs.
- Causes Addiction. Processed food alters the brain’s ability to regulate dopamine, the “motivation” hormone. As a result, cravings for sugar and processed foods increase more as you eat them, causing overconsumption of these foods and worsening Insulin Resistance and Toxicity.
Ascent Diet Cleanse Detox Benefits
With the synergistic combination of the supplements in the Ascent Diet Cleanse along with the outlined diet in the Accelerated Food Guide, detoxification results are magnified without the usual detox “flu” symptoms; in fact, energy is improved starting day one. The benefits include:
- Elimination of Toxins. By opening the detox pathways and minimizing exposure to toxins, the Ascent Diet Cleanse helps remove toxins from the body without having the detox “flu” symptoms. In addition to removing the toxins, the Acceleradine® Iodine is “filling” the receptor sites that future toxins would gravitate to, preventing future toxicity. Furthermore, the elimination of alcohol, excess sugar, and processed foods minimize the toxic burden on the body.
- Reduced Insulin Resistance. With the combination of the Accelerated Keto®, Acceleradine® Iodine and Accelerated Ancient™ Salt, blood sugar lowers, cravings for sugar and carbs are suppressed, and the ability to intermittent fast is strengthened; all of these factors maximize detoxification results.
- Improved Digestion. With the combination of supplements in the Ascent Diet Cleanse, digestion is improved, and symptoms like constipation, bloat, gas, and nausea are minimized. Intermittent fasting on its own is known to help heal the gut, but many find it hard to start fasting. The Accelerated Keto® suppresses the appetite and makes it easy for anyone to engage in fasting without stressing the body.
- Weight Loss. Many detox programs restrict calorie intake and encourage “juicing”; these detox programs may result in short term weight loss, but cause the body to shift into survival mode and slow down the metabolism.
Unlike other cleanses, the combination of the Acceleradine® Iodine, Accelerated Thyroid®, and Accelerated Keto® in the Ascent Diet Cleanse increases metabolism, increases ATP (cellular energy), and increases fat burning without shifting into survival and starvation mode.
- Increased Energy. By not eating processed foods or potentially harmful substances, combined with the energy-inducing combination of the supplements in the Ascent Diet Cleanse, ATP, which is true cellular energy in the mitochondria, is significantly enhanced.
- Enhanced Immune Function. The Acceleradine® Iodine and the Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ are known to devitalize foreign pathogens including bacteria, viruses, parasites and more. When they are paired with a low carb diet full of nutrient dense real food, the immune system becomes optimized.
- Autophagy. Autophagy occurs when cells use their own components to rebuild new cells and clean up the “junk”. It is triggered naturally by fasting, exercise and a low carb diet. With the Ascent Diet Cleanse supplements, autophagy is triggered much more quickly than with fasting or exercise alone.
- Clearer Skin. Combining the Ascent Diet Cleanse with the elimination of certain foods and toxins means that most people see an improvement in their complexion. Skin is the largest detox organ, and when toxins are expelled from the skin, it will become clearer and more vibrant.
- Reduced Inflammation. The Ascent Diet Cleanse is designed to reduce systemic inflammation throughout the body. Each supplement on its own has anti-inflammatory properties, and the combination of them together exponentially enhances those results.
- Mental Clarity. The symbiotic combination of the supplements in the Ascent Diet Cleanse, combined with prioritizing nutrient dense wild animal protein, may improve mental clarity, mood, and focus.
- Release of Stones. The cleanse leads you to the last day where you release gallstones and liver stones in the toilet! As a result, liver function is optimized, metabolism may increase, liver fat is minimized and insulin sensitivity is improved. With the liver being the master detox organ, this release of stones will trigger a cascade of health benefits for the whole body.
SUPPLEMENTS in the Ascent Diet Cleanse
The Ascent Diet Cleanse contains the following supplements:
Here’s a basic guideline of how each supplement works.
Iodine is essential for the Ascent Diet Cleanse to magnify the detoxification and the rebuilding of the whole body. Iodine antiviral and antifungal, antibacterial, and antimicrobial; this ensures that your system is cleaned of the foreign pathogens that are burdening the immune system and further “clogging” up the detox pathways. Furthermore, it helps control inflammation, free radicals, allergies, and histamines. While it is doing all of the above, Acceleradine is “pushing out” the toxins, heavy metals, and radiation that are disrupting the body’s optimal state of health. Even more, it is finding the diseased cells and destroying them through a process called Apoptosis.
Lastly, while it is helping with detox, it immediately increases your metabolism, fat burning, and energy so that you achieve your weight loss goals, alleviate your brain fog and mood issues, and optimize your thyroid function.
Why you need Iodine
Iodine is THE “Metabolic Mineral”, stimulating metabolism, increasing energy, activating the immune system, and building one’s health.
Additionally, Iodine is necessary for assimilating key minerals, such as calcium and silica, and key vitamins, such as B-12 and D, and removes fluoride, chlorine, and bromide from the body.
Many people have reported that they feel a greater sense of well-being, increased energy, and a lifting of brain fog when supplementing with Iodine. They also report feeling warmer in cold environments, needing less sleep, having improved skin complexion, and having more regular bowel movements.
Iodine helps synthesize thyroid hormones and prevents both hypo and hyperthyroidism. It is ESSENTIAL for thyroid and metabolism.
Accelerated Scalar Silver®
For the Ascent Diet Cleanse, the Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ may help improve circulation, strengthen the immune system and support detoxification.
With Proprietary Scalar Technology, the restoring properties are enhanced above any other silver. Silver is known to help devitalize viruses, bacteria, candida, fungus, and all known pathogens in the blood. You cannot overdose on it!
Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ is programmed with frequencies to:
- Clear emotional and physical shock from the body
- Improve the health of the Thymus
- Improve lung function
- Devitalize viruses
- Devitalize bacteria
This supplement is one to share with your whole family. Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ will help keep immune systems strong, increase energy, and prevent them from getting sick!
You can also watch here to learn more about the difference between Accelerated Colloidal Silver™ and other Colloidal Silver.
Accelerated Keto® has a synergistic effect with the rest of the Ascent Diet Cleanse supplements to heal the body even faster than with just the Accelerated Keto® and low-carb diet.
Accelerated Keto® puts your body into ketosis and fat-burning mode within 30 minutes. It helps with appetite control and physical and mental energy, as it teaches your body to utilize its fat stores for energy. Therefore, you aren’t needing outside sources of food to fuel the body.
As your body is in that state, it is concentrating on cleaning out the bad cells, reducing inflammation, feeding the brain amazing energy, and healing the body.
Where Accelerated Keto® is different from any other exogenous ketone supplement is that it has multiple herbal cofactors in the formula to increase ATP production in the cells (which is your true ENERGY), to “de-fat” the liver (where fat burning occurs) and start cleansing the liver, and to help alleviate brain fog.
Accelerated Keto® is programmed with scalar frequencies to:
- Clear emotional and physical shock from the body
- Cleanse the Liver
- Convert saturated fat to unsaturated fat
- Increase base metabolic rate
You do not need to eat a high-fat diet to benefit from Accelerated Keto®. Your body can “snack” on its fat stores to stay in the state of ketosis. To learn more about Accelerated Keto®, you can watch this video.
By combining three different formulas into one, Accelerated Thyroid™ is a powerful supplement that can help support thyroid health naturally, and provide the following benefits:
- Increases metabolism and fat burning
- Increases physical and mental energy
- Helps prevent fatty liver
- Accelerates wound healing
- Strengthens connective tissues & bones
- Provides additional immune support
- Helps elevate mood
- Strengthens digestion
- Essential to B12 production
Accelerated Thyroid™ has been Bio Energetically Enhanced with our proprietary Scalar Field technology to imbed specific restorative patterns into it.
The Scalar frequencies included are programmed to:
- Enhance the general health of the thyroid and help support thyroid disease.
- Neutralize toxins found in the thyroid that cause fat gain and slow metabolism; these include chlorine, fluorine, mercury, and other metals.
- Neutralize radiation and nuclear fallout that may contribute to fat gain, lack of energy, and mood disorders.
This one-of-a-kind detox powder is a GUT SUPERHERO!
Accelerated Cellular Detox® Powder will help soak up the toxins you are releasing with the Ascent Diet Cleanse.
It will help with regularity and bloat, and clean out your system from years of toxic build-up. It is now enhanced with SCALAR frequency to further detox the body from insecticides and heavy metals.
Accelerated Cellular Detox® Powder is programmed with frequencies to:
- Clear emotional and physical shock from the body
- Detox the body from Pesticides and Insecticides
- Detox the body from heavy metals and radiation
Wild-Lytes or QuintEssential 0.9
Most people are deficient in electrolytes and minerals; and when the body switches to a low carb diet, the body releases excess water and electrolytes. It is essential to consume extra electrolytes that support energy and overall health.
QuintEssential 0.9 contains up to 78 bioavailable ionic minerals to replenish your cells with the same highly bioavailable mineral-rich bath that nourished life on Earth for millions of years. It helps hydrate the cells properly, heal leaky gut, and improve digestion. It contains the same mineral balance as your blood plasma.
Wild-Lytes goes beyond the scope of a simple electrolyte formula to target the effects of daily stress, inflammation, adrenal fatigue, and immune disruption at a cellular level, providing a foundation for whole-body health. Unlike many electrolyte supplements, nothing in this formulation down-regulates phase one liver detoxification or blocks sulfation pathways for oxalate metabolism.
Wild-Lytes ingredients include:
- Himalayan Sea Salts are mineral-rich and contain the natural electrolytes our body depletes through exercise, illness, and our everyday stress response.
- Cilantro supports oxygenation of the blood and is a natural liver detoxifier, helping to alleviate adrenal fatigue and unburden our overtaxed immune systems.
- Watermelon contains citrulline, a building block of nitric oxide—vital for cardiovascular function—and is rich in vitamins A, B6, and C, potassium, magnesium, and l-arginine—an amino acid that manages blood supply to the muscles and can relieve muscle cramping and fatigue.
Each element is powerful on its own but transformed in the union, supporting cellular communication for optimal results.
Wild-Lytes can help balance and support:
- Hydration & Electrolyte Balance
- Muscle Cramping & Fatigue
- Immune Function
- Heart and Cardiovascular Function
- Oxalate, Sulfur, and Uric Acid Metabolism
- Adrenal Function
- Lymphatic Metabolism
- Histamine Flairs
- Joint Pain and Swelling
- Blood Sugar Regulation
- Skin Health
Wild-Lytes intentionally omits imbalancing ingredients to optimize epigenetic response for maximum efficacy and absorption. It is clean and pure – free from gluten, dairy, and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
Laxa Comfort for Constipation
Constipation is one of the main causes of disease and toxic overload. It is imperative to have 2-3 bowel movements a day. Laxa Comfort will make your bowel movements consistent and healthy.
You need to be having 2-3 bowel movements a day to make sure you are getting the toxins out of the body.
Accelerated Ancient Salt® is a strongly negatively charged salt; because of the negative charge, it helps “pull out” positively charged toxins, parasites, and undigested fats. It is supporting the detoxification process with the Cleanse while providing the needed electrolytes. Lastly, it can help suppress your cravings for carbs and sugar in addition to extending your fasting window.
It is made from pure, raw, unbleached, unheated, unrefined ancient seabed and sea salt from pristine sources that contain no harmful or synthetic excipients.
Accelerated Ancient Salt® is a mixture of five precious salts from High-Frequency locations in the Andes Mountains, the Himalayas, and Utah. It is scalar-charged to further enhance its frequency.
Through the use of basic quantum mechanics combined with the high purity of raw materials, a scalar field is developed. The resultant scalar energy is a higher frequency of energy that helps create the organization of the DNA.
USES & BENEFITS:
- Provides an excellent source of Electrolytes when you put it in your water.
- Helps with appetite control and alleviates nausea when you put it on your tongue.
- Adds gourmet flavor to food (can grind into powder for sprinkling). I don’t use any other salt in my food!
- Increases Frequency when used in detox baths. Add 1 tbsp to the bath in addition to 1/2 cup of Dead Sea Salt.
- Reduces Blood Sugar and can be an alternative to sweets, soda, and white crackers.
Livrol Forte, Malic Acid, and Oxy-Clear
The addition of Livrol Forte, Malic Acid, and Oxy-Clear at the start of week 3 will help soften the liver and gallstones and get them ready to actually flush out of your body!
Oxy-Clear Digestive Cleanse Support provides digestive and detox support while helping proper bowel function. Oxy-Clear provides gentle natural bowel relief for those who struggle with constipation, or those on detoxification programs. This is for the last day of the Liver Flush, but can also be used daily for constipation if the Laxa Comfort is too strong.
Livrol Forte and Malic Acid. This combination provides the liver with protection against toxins and helps promote better digestion and assimilation of food. When taken together, it also helps soften the liver stones and gallstones, prepping them to be expelled on the last day of the flush!
Optional Supplements to Enhance Results
Radiation has been shown to cause disease in the body, leading to unexplained weight gain, hormonal imbalances, headaches, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and more. It is an invisible threat to our health.
NucNoMore® is the only remedy known to help zero out the body from all ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. It addresses radiation from commercial flying through the Jet Stream, smart devices, 5G and more.
NucNoMore was used in a post-Fukushima study involving 32 people worldwide and was the only product we have seen to reduce in vivo radio contamination to zero. This is essential for the new level of toxicity we are exposed to.
Accelerated Scalar Copper®
Copper has been depleted by processed foods, the Spike Protein and it has been shown to be a key to weight loss for those with unexplained weight gain. Accelerated Scalar Copper® works synergistically with the Ascent Diet cleanse to enhance the effects including fat loss, increased energy, improved hair growth, and improved skin, bone and tissue health.
Accelerated Scalar Copper® is the only copper supplement with 100% absorption (vs 5-10% in other supplements), made with proprietary Scalar technology and enhanced with frequencies for increased efficacy.
Copper helps decrease uric acid, fatty liver, insulin resistance and obesity through multiple different ways:
- Copper blocks the Polyol Pathway which is responsible for converting glucose into sorbitol and fructose. Because of this mechanism, uric acid stays in check and fat gain and obesity is prevented.
- Without copper, not only does uric acid and fat gain increase, but triglycerides and liver fat increases; fatty liver and triglycerides are what lead to obesity.
- The body cannot metabolize fat without copper.
- Copper inhibits PDE3 enzyme which is an enzyme that blocks fat burning; if the body can’t block PDE3, then it can’t burn fat.
- Low levels of cellular copper make fat cells “fatter” by altering how they process their main metabolic fuels, such as fat and sugar.
- Copper helps increase fat burning mechanisms.
- Copper helps regulate iron in the blood which is the root cause of oxidative stress. With less oxidative stress, there is less uric acid.
Most people suffer from Leaky Gut which is the cornerstone of most disease and health issues. MegaSporeBiotic supports the repair of the gut microbiome and works synergistically with the Ascent Diet Cleanse.
This unique probiotic blend aims to recondition the gut instead of reseeding with probiotic strains that cannot survive digestion or colonize the gut. Healthy gut bacteria is connected directly to fat burning and protein utilization for lean muscle mass.
MegaSporeBiotic helps control the “bad” bacteria that lead to bloat and dysbiosis and grow the “good” bacteria. It has been shown to help with E. Coli, Salmonella, H. Pylori and more.
Lifestyle Changes to Enhance Cleanse Results
Ground Bison ©️ Northstar Bison. Prioritize grass-fed, wild animal protein as an excellent source of lean protein.
Increase Protein Intake
To improve your health, consider consuming 1-1.2 grams of wild animal protein per pound of your desired lean body mass. This can help detoxify your body from toxins in other foods, improve Insulin Resistance and Fatty Liver, reduce your cravings for processed foods and carbs, suppress your appetite, build lean muscle mass, eliminate bloating, heal leaky gut, and keep you in a fat-burning state.
Protein will trigger the hormone CCK (which suppresses appetite), support lean muscle gains, and increase glucagon, the “fat burning” hormone.
Including proteins from wild animals like lamb, bison, deer, grass-fed beef, elk, wild salmon, arctic char, and other wild fish in your diet provides the most nutrients compared to any other food source. These proteins contain all the essential amino acids, high omega 3 fatty acids, collagen, and necessary vitamins such as Vitamin D, E, and B. They support the body’s needs by increasing the glucagon-to-insulin ratio, which lowers insulin resistance, opens up detox pathways, and triggers increased fat burn. Prioritizing wild protein in your diet can be beneficial for your health.
On the other hand, protein sources like chicken, poultry and conventional beef contain inflammatory proteins called amyloids in the body. Amyloids are proteins found in conventional meats that increase liver inflammation and gut pathogens, trip up fat burning mechanisms, and increase brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is best to abstain from these sources of protein.
Limit Vegetables, Grains, and Beans
Most grains, beans, and non-organic starchy vegetables are not only full of GMOs, but also are high in carbohydrates which increase Insulin Resistance. They also are known to cause Leaky Gut, extract nutrients from the body, and inhibit proper nutrient absorption.
Furthermore, certain vegetables, grains, and beans have oxalates, sulfur, mold, or lectins that can disrupt detoxification and liver function. By eliminating all beans, all grains, and certain vegetables, leaky gut will improve, nutrient absorption will be restored and cravings will subside.
Once the gut is healed and insulin sensitivity is achieved, you can start incorporating these vegetables again.
If you are sedentary, you will start having the energy to move again! Start walking, rebounding, and invest in some home weights or commit to going to a gym. If you exercise now, continue to do so and incorporate more strength training. Strength training will maintain or increase lean muscle tissue, boost mood, increase fat burn, and help lower insulin resistance.
Stem Cell Activation Patches
For those who want to enhance the results from the Ascent Diet Cleanse further, Stem Cell Activation Patches optimize energy, detoxification, anti-aging, and fat burn. I recommend the following LifeWave patches:
The X49 patch may help:
- Reduce body fat
- Increase energy and recovery after exercise
- Improve cardiovascular function and focus
- Increase muscle tone and strength
- Increase lean body mass
- Strengthen bone density
- Enhance the weight loss results when combined with the Ascent Diet Cleanse.
Energy Enhancer Patches
The Energy Enhancer patches may help enhance:
- Caloric burn
- Fat loss
- Metabolic rate
- Increase ATP in the mitochondria
- Increase heart rate variability
- Improve the bioelectrical measurement or “phase angle” or integrity of the cell walls
- Reduce inflammation
- Increase endurance
- Increase beta-oxidation which is the fastest way to increase fat burning and cellular energy
- Increase fat burning and muscle growth.
The X39 patch increases your own stem cell production and resets over 4,000 genes to a younger state, including the genes responsible for fat oxidation, lean muscle repair, inflammation reduction, bone density, and healing of the gut.
As a result, the patch helps repair collagen in all tissues, heals Leaky Gut, activates stem cell production, encourages apoptosis of cancer and diseased cells, and discourages metastatic cancer cells.
While using X39, weight loss and gut health results from the Ascent Diet Cleanse will be enhanced.
Y-age Carnosine Patches
The Y-age Carnosine Patch will enhance energy and endurance, which will quicken the fat loss and muscle gain results from the Ascent Diet Cleanse.
