This protocol has been developed based on existing Standard Process kits.
What will the next 10 days be like?
When you start the 10-day Healthy Inflammation Response Program, you begin a new way of life. You will:
- Follow eating guidelines that focus on whole, unprocessed foods like vegetables, fruits, and lean protein
- Avoid refined carbohydrates, artificial sweeteners, sugar, chemical additives, processed meats, fried foods, caffeine, and soft drinks
- Drink supplement shakes with whole food ingredients
- Take a simple protocol of supplements throughout the day
Before beginning your 10-day program, here are some steps you can take to make the transition easier:
- Evaluate your kitchen: Clear out the foods that are not on your food list. Remove any foods high in refined sugar, fats, and carbohydrates
- Stock your pantry: Go shopping for vegetables, protein, fruit, and other items on your food list. Be prepared with a few days’ worth of meals on hand
- Make simple lifestyle changes:
- Get more sleep.
- Don’t sit for long periods. Take stretching breaks.
- Be more active. Do yoga, take a brisk walk, or enjoy a meditative stroll

Water is cleansing! To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The result is the approximate number of water in ounces you should drink daily.
This total can vary depending on the climate you live in, the environment, your physical activity level, or other factors. The Institute of Medicine determined an adequate daily intake for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total liquid a day. For women the total is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total liquid a day.
