Smoothly, Easily and with Joy

For those of you who are making a transition to a more wholesome, mineral rich, organic and fresh live foods diet, please remember that it is important that you make the transition as smoothly as possible.

Too much change from your previous eating habits done too quickly is generally not a good idea. There are some people can make the change with relatively little discomfort. However, with many people, there can be a rash of strong symptoms that indicate rapid levels of purification and detoxification.

These symptoms can include dizziness, headaches, blemishes and rashes on the skin, outbreaks of cold and flu symptoms and various aches and pains in the joints. If these symptoms are too strong for you, it is usually an indication that you are making the transition to living foods too quickly.

The process of moving to a more healthy diet and lifestyle should be relatively smooth, easy and fun.

The main strategy should be to add as many mineral rich and high quality organic foods as possible. Don't worry as much about removing unhealthy elements from your diet too fast. It is important for you to wean yourself off of more unhealthy items gradually, so that you do not trigger too many radical detoxification symptoms.

Most of us have been carrying around a tremendous amount of toxins in our bodies after a lifetime of bad eating habits. We should take care to remember this and remove those toxins in a way that is kind to our bodies and our psyches. If we move too quickly through the transition process, we can end up doing some unnecessary harm to the balance that is so necessary to a strong, healthy life.

So, please take care with the way that you make changes in your diet and your life. There is no rush to this process. It is important that we take time and care to include joy in everything we do.
