Healing Through Nutrition
Considering that 75% of all people who lose weight, regain it within 3 years, (and 95% within 10 years!), it is obvious that most diets don’t work long term. Besides that, most diets follow a ‘one fits all’ approach and does not take our metabolic and biochemical individuality into account, like our whole life style approach does. Below are different approaches for long term health.
The Clean 14 is great way to start your healthy journey! But if you already eat clean
and want to focus on cleansing your body,
try one of our customized
Standard Process Purification Programs.
There are targeted 10 day programs that focus on specific health needs and a lengthier 21 day program.
Experience the benefits of helping your body cleanse and lose weight with the Standard Process Purification Program. The purification program combines a generous menu of whole foods with supplements that support the body’s ability to remove naturally occurring toxins. The Standard Process Purification Program is not strictly a cleanse diet but rather a structured program that combines whole food eating with supplements and nutritious supplement shakes. This cleans is a great way to kickstart permanent dietary change. By the end you will be feeling so good you won't want to go back to your old lifestyle! Choose between a 10-day or 21-day plan.

Behind ALL Our Dietary Plans
The place to start for losing weight is in switching to a nourishing traditional diet such as those of the nonindustrialized populations Price studied. Dr. Price does not recommend lowfat diets, high protein diets that restrict fat, vegetarian diets,* or vegan diets. The body needs an abundant supply of the fat-soluble vitamins and fat-soluble activators found only in animal fats. Many of the vitamins and minerals found in vegetables cannot be absorbed without fat, and protein cannot be assimilated without fat. In fact, the body will rob its own precious stores of fat-soluble vitamins in order to digest protein if adequate fat is not eaten with it, which can lead to rapid depletion of these nutrients so necessary for so many biological functions. Price's natives never ate lean meat without the fat.
Reducing simple carbohydrates and increasing saturated fats is the basis for the diet. The fatty acids in coconut oil and butter in particular are helpful for weight loss.
Some people who switch to a nourishing traditional diet still have difficulty losing weight. This could be do to any number of underlying health issues such as toxic overload from poisons like amalgam (mercury) dental fillings, insulin resistance, and other issues. If weight loss is one of your major goals we recommend starting with our purification program and then using these principles as a maintenance diet.
Other Dietary Plans
These plans are for patients who are strictly monitored and under the care of Olena Wellness practitioners

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is a specific group of foods which are grain-free, sugar-free, starch-free, and unprocessed. While removing many foods that are toxic and digestively harmful the diet remains natural, extremely nourishing and representative of what our ancestors ate.
Eating SCD is a way to “re-boot” your digestion and give you an overall health boost. The diet will probably have you feeling better than ever even if you don’t have any intestinal damage. But if you are one of the lucky few who needs a bit of digestive support this diet is a great place to start.
