New year, New Goals – Start with Detox

Updated: Nov 27, 2019

It is time to Detox

The beginning of a new year always makes me refocus.  I try to plan ahead and figure out how to get better (in all aspects of life).  Today I would like to mention two things that I have found in 2017 that have made a difference in my health.  Physical exercise and detoxification programs.

Are you physically better than you were this time last year?  Do you have less pain?  Lower cholesterol?  Fewer headaches?  Fewer stomach issues?  Less tired?  If so, how did you do it?  If not, why not?

We all need motivation to get us to do something.  Eating better and exercising are two of the areas where I am not easily motivated to make a change.  I have found that I am motivated if someone else is going to join the fight with me.  I recently joined my wife, Summer, in a 10 day detox that we have available at Regel Pharmalab.  Her goal was to lower her cholesterol.  Her cholesterol has always been normal until this year.  Instead of starting to take cholesterol medications, she asked her physician to give her a chance to bring it down with diet and exercise.  He gave her 4 months to bring it down.  She researched the options and settled on the 10 day Metagenics Detox program as well as making better choices.


The detox program is designed not only to detox the gastrointestinal tract but also the liver.  We both liked the idea of doing this program because it was only 10 days.  The program includes a suggested menu for the 10 days, a detox support capsule and a detox powder that we made as a shake.  It was not the most pleasant 10 days, but it went well.  There was not a time that I felt hungry.  This detox is not designed to help you lose weight.  It is designed to clean out the gastrointestinal tract as well as the liver.  Cleansing the liver has been shown to help you eliminate excess cholesterol.

Well, it worked.  Summer’s cholesterol dropped significantly and cholesterol medication was not needed.  I have to say that she continued a three times a week program of walking for ~ 3 miles during the detox.


I was introduced to F3 in September of 2016 and a small group of men started meeting in January of 2017.  I cannot tell you how much easier it is to get up 3 to 4 times a week from 5:30 to 6:15 and workout with a close group of men.  F3 ( or the three Fs stand for Fitness, Fellowship and faith.  The free workout (Fitness) will bring you to a workout.  The friends (fellowship) that are formed will motivate you to come back for more workouts.  The faith will bring you closer.  Men need close friends.  Men need to lead.  Men need to connect with men that are one or two steps ahead in their relationships with their spouse and God.

I can say that since last January I am stronger physically, socially and spiritually.  If you want more information about F3, go to or  We really are impacting the community all over Memphis one “sad clown” at a time.

Fitness, Fellowship, Faith
