The SHAPE Reclaimed Program is a health restoration plan that is customized to meet your individual and specific health goals. First, you will meet with Dr. Cindy Jakubiec, a holistic doctor in Orland Park, IL. We will have a meaningful conversation about your health, the challenges you are experiencing along with your long-term health goals. Then we will go through the Shape ReClaimed Program Guidebook in detail. Once all of your questions have been answered we will have you do a baseline urinalysis and you get your first bottle of SHAPE Drops.
The SHAPE ReClaimed Program has three clear and defined phases.
Cleanse: Phase One
The purpose of Phase One is to cleanse your body of toxins. During this phase, your brain chemistry will begin to balance, inflammation will decrease, and your immune system will begin to strengthen. If weight reduction is one of your goals, Phase One can also cleanse your body of excess weight. You will follow the SHAPE Nutrition Protocol detailed in the Shape Program Guidebook, take the SHAPE Drops three times a day, and meet weekly with Dr. Cindy, a certified Shape ReClaimed practitioner and functional medicine doctor, during Phase One.
Phase One is a minimum of three weeks, that’s the time it takes for your body’s biochemistry to change. Dr. Cindy recommends staying in Phase One until you reach all of your health goals.
Common Health Goals in the Shape Reclaimed Program
Consider some of the health goals, “your why”, you would like to achieve as your body sheds excess weight. Some common health goals we see at Anchored in Health are:
- improved sleep
- increased energy
- elevated mood
- increased stamina
- improved concentration
- positive self-esteem
- improved ability to move and exercise
- decreased cravings for junk food
- balanced hormones
- decreased headaches and body aches.
Stabilize: Phase Two
The purpose of this phase is to stabilize your brain chemistry and your metabolism. If you lost weight in Phase One, this phase is very important for maintaining your new weight. You will stop taking the SHAPE Drops and begin reintroducing foods you haven’t been eating since starting Shape. You will continue to meet with our holistic doctor, Dr.Cindy, weekly during Phase Two. Phase Two is exactly three weeks, stabilizing your body’s biochemistry.
Your brain needs time to realize that your current weight is your new normal weight and the weight you started SHAPE ReClaimed at is no longer normal for you. That means there is no need for you to gain all of that weight back again (or then more).
When we reintroduce foods that you did not eat during Phase One, it allows us to see how your body reacts to the foods you used to eat. Sometimes, we see inflammatory reactions to foods you ate regularly and can tie it back to why you didn’t feel great before starting Shape.
Your body feels very different from where you started and when you reach Phase Two. After three weeks in Phase Two it’s time to move into Phase Three and beyond!
Live: Phase Three
The purpose of Phase Three is to use the knowledge you gained in the previous two phases to maintain a healthy lifestyle. You can start taking the SHAPE Drops again as a daily supplement to maintain optimal health. Phase Three is taking everything you learned about your body and how it reacts to the foods you eat. While continuing the SHAPE ReClaimed lifestyle as part of your everyday life.
Life Beyond Phase Three:
As with most things in life, we all have successes and failures. Weight loss and new lifestyle changes can be hard to navigate and maintain long term.
That’s why Dr. Cindy believes that a continued accountability relationship when you are in Phase Three of the Shape Reclaimed Program is invaluable. Sometimes going back to the “real world” is challenging and old habits sneak back in. Having accountability is a key component of long-term success.
Summertime gatherings, vacations, and holidays all come with social obligations and, of course, food. And that food can have emotional ties like grandma’s homemade lasagna and cookies you grew up eating.
When life gets a bit hectic, some of the good habits you learned from the Shape Program can get lost. And that’s okay. Gained a few pounds back? No biggie! We can help get you back on track with a shorter reboot program.
Some Shape patients love to do an annual or even quarterly Shape ReClaimed Quick Cleanse. The Quick Cleanse lasts 3 weeks and gets you back on track, shed that toxic holiday or vacation weight or bloating, reconnect with “your why” and recommit to a long and healthy life and relationship with food.
Sometimes, for a great many reasons, you don’t reach your original health goals, regain weight, or stop the Shape program. Sometimes life goes sideways and food returns as your way to deal with difficult emotions. Whatever the reason, it’s NEVER to late to re-start the Shape ReClaimed Program!
We are always here to help and support you on your Shape ReClaimed journey and lifestyle restoration.
