Congratulations! You’ve chosen to begin your SHAPE ReClaimed journey to better health. We know you are probably wondering how this program works and what you can expect along the way.
Here are six tasks that can help you make the most of your SHAPE ReClaimed journey.
Your practitioner may have introduced you to the SHAPE ReClaimed program to address some of your health challenges, or maybe you sought out a specific SHAPE practitioner. Be honest and thorough when you complete your health history and patient intake forms. During your initial exam, discuss your concerns and challenges, your personal goals, express your intentions, and commit yourself to the process.
It is your responsibility to read through the guidebook in its entirety and study the information provided on this website. Practitioners are not required to explain every detail of the program to each patient, and most simply don’t have the time to do that. These online resources were designed to help you to gain as much knowledge as possible as you navigate through your SHAPE ReClaimed journey. “The OFFICIAL SHAPE ReClaimed Support Group” on Facebook can be an emotional sounding board and place to connect with others to help you as you proceed.
A baseline urinalysis is required before you begin. Your SHAPE practitioner will determine what follow-up schedule is best and will be monitoring your progress with regular urinalyses. Your results will be discussed by your practitioner on the day of your appointment. If you have more serious health concerns and/or are on prescription medications, you will require closer monitoring as your medication needs may change rapidly. Be sure to involve your prescribing physician.
The guidebook provides the foundation of the program. For those choosing Phase I: FasTrac, be sure to eat no less than the minimums listed (there are no minimums for Phase 1: Sure & Steady). Depending on your urinalysis results and symptoms, your SHAPE practitioner may adjust your portions or allow you to add certain foods. If your SHAPE practitioner makes adjustments, understand that these recommendations are for you personally. Please do not recommend them to others who are also doing the program. Your recommendations could actually derail another person’s SHAPE ReClaimed journey.
Each of our SHAPE practitioners are trained on and educated about our program. That said, each practitioner will have a personal preference for how they administer the program to their patients. Here are some things that each SHAPE practitioner may do differently:
If you truly embrace what SHAPE ReClaimed teaches and represents, you will see results. Inflammation will be reduced, you’ll feel cleansed, your immune system will be strengthened, and you’ll develop a new relationship with food.
We realize this program can be demanding at times, but we will not apologize for being rigid about our protocol. We require practitioner monitoring throughout your SHAPE ReClaimed journey for your safety and long-term success. This is also why the program and associated products will never be sold online or to the general public.
Your SHAPE practitioner has partnered with SHAPE ReClaimed and has signed an annual contract stating that they will adhere to specific guidelines. We provide plenty of training and resources to ensure all our practitioners understand how to serve you best.
