What am I doing to help heal my body?

  I wanted to write about something that I started doing again. I needed something to kind of reset my diet and help get me to where I need to be. In addition to making sure I eat plenty of fresh fruit and plant based foods, I need to spend time resetting my body. My diet isn't always as clean as I like and need it to be. Even I eat stuff I really shouldn't from time to time. 

eating healthy

  The last couple of years along my journey has been really tough for me for many reasons. Have you ever been there? This doesn't change much for me because my goal is always the same. To do my best every day, even when my best is not so great. To learn along the way, and progress forward even if it is hard. If you have ever tried to do what most people will never do, then you understand. 

  If you are on a healing journey no matter how imperfect it may be at times, then you understand. Every day is a new day to make those necessary changes. We all need to be reminded that it's OK to not be perfect because your not going to be. You will screw up from time to time, we all do. Just stay the course

  This goes for diet change, healing journey, wealth building and anything that you wish to accomplish! Another thing I want to add to this is not waiting until everything is perfect to begin. You will never be in the perfect situation needed to accomplish your goals. Life is too short not to take imperfect action towards getting what you want in life. 

  Every day that we practice the life and habits that we want, the easier it gets. You will still have days where it doesn't seem so easy. Move through it and past it. Also no matter what happens, DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP OVER IT! That's not healthy either. 

  I'm not here creating this natural health blog to say I'm perfect and better than you in anyway. Don't look up to me because you think I'm perfect and never struggle with things. I'm like you a human being, and a member of an imperfect and dysfunctional at times family. I'm not "normal" and I didn't raise my kids to be either lol! 

  I am here to offer you the very same information that I'm using to feel my best every day, As well as improve on my health. Don't get me wrong I still have a lot of work to do. I am a work in progress like all of us are. I know that when my diet is clean I feel my best and when it's not I feel like shit. I know that when we are at our best we can do our best. 

  My prayer is that I can be a positive influence in your life. The information here can be customized to fit your lifestyle. The most important thing is just get started. Eat from nature's goodness! The fruit, berries, melons and plants that hydrate the body. I also am a big believer in fasting every day to reset the body and eliminate more waste. 

  This gets me back to my original plan for this post. So, what am I doing to reset my diet and get back to better management of my health? 

  I am going back to the basics of my first year of my healing journey. After I began this journey to improve on my health again back October 2017 I was feeling pretty good. I lost 50 pounds and had energy again on a fruit based diet with simple salads. I was also doing a 15 hour a day fast and I was doing it consistently. 

  So this year I decided to get back to the fasting 15-20 hours a day as well as eating a clean fruit based diet with veggies and greens. I have already been fasting daily until about 12 noon. Actually that is a practice that I got into back when my journey began in 2017. My first meal is always a big smoothie between 12 noon and 2pm. 

  But I got into the habit of eating until late in the day when I really need to be fasting. I really should be getting at least a 15 hour daily fast in. Fasting long enough is important for the body to correct any imbalances that it may have. When you fast long enough you trigger the body to burn stored body fat for energy. Digestion and elimination is also caught up through fasting. 

  When we fast long enough the energy saved that usually goes to digesting food is then used in the cleansing and healing processes. This is why it can be a good daily reset! If we adopt this lifestyle longer term we can get out of the bodies way every day and allow it to do what it needs to do. 

  I am going for a minimum of 15 hours daily fasting. I am already used to getting close to that with my usual 12 hours. To truly reset my body and get the results that I am looking for I need to be closer to 20 hours a day. But I am not trying to be perfect so there is a margin of 5 hours there. 

  With 24 hours in the day, if we fast for 20 that is a 4 hour eating window. If we fast a few less hours that is a 5 or 6 hour eating window. Just depends on where you are at along your health journey and what you need to be doing. You be the judge of that. 

  It is good to have a plan if you want to succeed in your goals. From experience when I have a plan it is much easier to stay on track. Take the guess work out of it. Know when you need to eat and what you need to eat. Have a plan and stick to it! 

  For me it is easy to fast in the first part of the day but harder in the last part of the day. That is why I have been able to fast 12 hours daily form sleep to noon the next day. This time frame is easiest for me. But when evening rolls around if I don't have a plan I find myself grabbing whatever food is easy. And this is NOT where you want to be. 

  So for me having a plan is key to my success and your success no matter what it is you are tying to do. I like to write my plan out and put it in my pocket. I know form experience that a plan works and if it can work for me then it will you. 

  Since I am a mom in a full house I am not the only one that I prepare food for. I am also not the only one bring food into the house. Being a member and care giver of a household can be a challenge for us when we are trying to change everything about ourselves. I live with teenagers and my parents who are in there 70's. Both are challenging ages lol!

  Anyway, no matter what situation your in, it is probably not the perfect conditions for you to succeed with little effort. You have to work hard for what you want and having a plan that you can follow is the key! 
  My plan consists of fasting about 18 hours with a margin of a few hours just in case my plan needs to be a little flexible. It is important to allow flexibility in your plan for best results. But make sure to follow it. The best plan is only as good as the effort we put towards it. 

  In addition to the fasting time that I am putting in daily, I need to make sure my diet is as clean as possible each day. I want to eat mainly fruit with some veggies and of course salads. I honestly don't do salads every day but recently I been fitting in some raw veggies like broccoli and cauliflower in my diet. These veggies are great for lowering thyroid hormones so they are important in a hyperthyroid healing diet. 

  I want to eat between noon and 6pm or sooner. That is a 6 hour eating widow tops and if I start eating later than noon then it's less of a window. I also have the flexibility to make it the full 6 hours or less if I need to. 

  The foods that I choose should be plant based, fruit mostly and some vegetables. I eat mostly raw and that is good for me. Some days I eat 100% raw. It just depends on what I am doing and what I am cooking for my family. 

  For a good diet and fasting plan you also want to keep lots of fresh fruit on hand to eat. That way you are not going to eat something that is easier and not as good for you. I always have bananas, frozen fruit, apples and along with some greens for a salad. I can at least make a smoothie in a pinch or a salad with what I already have. 
  In the summer papaya and watermelon make a easy quick meal. We also have many fruit trees so in season I have lots of quick healthy food. 

  So far my plan is working out and it is allowing me to have more control over my diet. I have a plan and I follow it. Eat enough during the time allowed for eating. You want to eat enough food to sustain you for the day. Even though you are not eating all day it is still important to get enough calories. 

  This is were a plan comes in too. Plan out your meals, have plenty of quick healthy foods and eat enough. When it is time to fast you fast and that is it. 

  This is what I am doing and what helps me to stay on track or get back on track. My elimination is good and I feel like my system is getting a rest too. 

  Give it a try! Create a plan for your health. What will you eat? Make sure to have enough healthy easy to prepare foods on hand. What time of the day is best for you to fast? I like my fast to start in the evening, through my nights sleep on until about noon the next day. 

  Try it out for yourself. Keep a journal and find out how much time you spend fasting on a typical day. Then find out where you should be doing more and do it. Start with where you are at right now and build up to 15 hours a day. 

  Another thing that I noticed about following through with my plan is intentional eating. No more trying to figure out what I am going to eat. I plan it out and since I have about a 4-6 hour eating window I have to be intentional about what I'm eating and how much. 

  My plan is helping me to stay focused on what I am eating and when. After that I don't have to worry about it until noon the next day. Just have to stick with the plan and have lots of food to eat. 

  Then I can spend that time doing things for every one else and resting of course :)

What does it take to heal the body?


How do I heal my body?

  I hear people saying it all the time "their is no cure for what I got." I feel people say this for a couple of reasons. For one their doctor told them. And why would they say anything different? Doctors don't believe in cures, they certainly don't believe in natural cures and natural health. Doctors don't cure anything! They treat symptoms. And ignore the source altogether! I mean maybe some do if they take the time to educate themselves. 

  But these Good doctors don't work in the medical mainstream. And most of these doctors are not medical doctors but Naturopaths or in other Holistic Health fields. Dr. Morse is one of these educated doctors who actually teach people how to heal from any disease, naturally. Not that some people aren't too far gone. I have learned a lot from him in the last few years. 

  Medical doctors (generally speaking) will only tell you to do what will put money in their pockets. And what pharmaceutical (major) companies tell them is the truth. Medical doctors can't make money off of you if you don't take drugs, cut out necessary body parts or get poked, injected and scanned annually. 

  I know this isn't a popular or worldly thing to say, especially not in a post COVI D world. But it's the truth! I am not saying that there isn't any necessary medical intervention. Certainly there are and our trauma care is one of the best in the world! I'm saying that, most are unnecessary, over prescribed and misdiagnosed as some incurable disease! 

  I'm talking about the majority of people who don't overcome their diseases naturally. Many people do! They are out there and when we seek them out we can find them. Many have written books and online to tell their story. 

  If you look at the diseases people suffer the most with you will find that these are diet and lifestyle related diseases. I am talking about heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. Even what I am dealing with thyroid disease can be reversed with diet and lifestyle. Although the same diet and lifestyle that got you fat, bloated and sick is not going to make it any better. If you keep doing the same things you will get worst not better. Even with pharmaceutical drugs, surgery, injections and scans! 

  I personally don't know of one person who has a better quality of life going the medical route. Neither have I seen any improvement in overall health in those I see taking drugs, having surgery, getting injected or scanned regularly. I am talking quality of life not a life dependent on doctors and drugs for the rest of your life. If that is what you ant to do than you probably hate this post lol! But if you want to do things differently then this post is for you. 

  Another reason why most people believe that there is no cure for what they, "have" is because natural health requires that people to do what they don't want to do. If these people believed in a cure they would have to change literally every aspect of their life! I mean a huge turn around to get different results. If you want things to change for you, you have to change! You can't keep doing the same things over and over expecting things to go different for some reason. 

  Natural Health is only possible if you do, what most people are unwilling to do. Most people don't want to give up the substances they use every day. They don't want to buy fresh produce because they don't eat it and it spoils. Then they say "it goes bad too fast." You know what I'm talking about? I've been there and see it around me. But it's not the foods fault! You got to put in the work that it takes to feel your best and look your best.

  People don't realize how much their taste buds will change over time. Until then we need to get creative and eat fresh produce even when we don't feel like it. Once we leave out all the other stuff and give it time we won't crave it anymore. I have wrote about that before in my last article, Addiction and the foods killing you! I talked about how we 0nly crave the substances that we have used before. 

  If you want to be free of pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and illness, you have to change what you are doing! You have to do what most people are unwilling to do! I always say that if you want standard American diseases eat and live like a standard American! We certainly are not looking for perfection because we do not live in a perfect world. What we should be looking for however is a better quality of life than what you got right now or will have in the future if you don't take control right now! 

  Even if you feel fine now, it all catches up to us eventually. How long do you think you can drink coffee, soda, energy drinks and even black teas until your adrenal glands take a dump? How about artery clogging dairy products and meat products? I have heard so many people say that they can't live without it. Yet 650,000 people are dead every year from heart disease! A preventable disease. Sure not all related to animal products alone but it all adds up. Especially of you are eating animal products and caffeinated sugary drinks as well! 

  Not to mention those deaths who were also smoking on top of it. I think we all know that smoking is extremely bad for us. But the problem is so are sugary caffeinated beverage products, fast food, baked goods and yet people are mostly clueless when it comes to that.

  We are told smoking is bad but little is said for energy drinks! We preach to our children to say no to drugs, yet 50% of American children are diagnosed with a chronic illness and even more are on prescription drugs. Wake up parents! 

  Help your kids learn how to be free from drugs not dependent on them. Sorry if this message is lost on you but I've seen it so many times. If it's acceptable to take pharmaceuticals for pain, or mind/mood altering then why not something else? When the doctors stop giving it to them, they will find it on the streets especially if they have developed a dependency. Sad but true! 

  Ok, so what does it take to create health rather than disease and codependency? 

  I have touched on some already. We need to eat a clean antioxidant rich diet of raw fruit and vegetables. We need to leave out anything that causes mucus to accumulate in the body. We also need to stop eating puss and mucus itself! I'm talking about animal products like dairy which is basically mucus. This mucus accumulation builds up and clogs the system making it very difficult to eliminate waste. 

  We must eliminate all addictive foods! These are the foods you talk about all the time, you know the ones you say you can't live without. The foods that do nothing good for you yet you keep consuming them. The enzyme void, sugary, empty calorie dense, processed foods. The caffeinated and decaffeinated for that matter, drinks you can't go one day without! FYI; decaffeinated crap is still crap! If you want something hot or cold to drink you can do hot lemon water, herbal tea, and fresh juice. Herbal tea is naturally caffeine free. Use a natural low glycemic sugar like date syrup or maple syrup if needed at all. 

  Get out in the sunshine every day and move your body! Drink clean water not tap water. Get water from your food too! Eat high water content raw foods, fresh juices, simple salads and lots of fruit! When it comes to food it's quality not quantity. Eat quality and you can eat as much as you want and still lose weight. Keep fats to a minimum and focus on fats from avocadoes rather than nuts. Use nuts sparingly. It is best to reserve your fats from avocado, seeds and nuts to be eaten with your greens. You should not mix fats with sweet fruits. 

  Get good sleep and don't stress over stuff you can't control anyway. Think positive and use your time to change your life not keep doing the same thing over and over again. It does take time to change and you might even feel worst at first. Especially if your getting off of the addictive substances your used too. Believe me, true long lasting real energy comes from changing you diet and lifestyle. Not addictive substances like coffee and energy drinks! Try eating a fruit diet with simple salads for dinner. Leave out all the other stuff. No one will be able to keep up with you. You will also start sleeping better and thinking better too. 

  Start incorporating fasting into your daily routine. Find out what time frame is best for you. If you are a person who doesn't like to eat in the morning then fast until after noon time when you have your first fruit meal. If you prefer your fasting to be in the evening then stop eating in th evenings. This will give you a good fast time every day. And when we fast we reset our body, balance our blood sugar levels, improve digestion, and cleansing and healing process. Did you know that the most energy demanding activity our body does is digest food? 

  If you are eating a lot of hard to digest processed foods, grains and animal products no wonder you feel like you need coffee, energy drinks or soda. Eat easily digestible foods like fruit, greens and vegetables. Leave out every thing else and you will have to find more things to do with all of the energy that you will have. Of course be realistic. You have to give it time for your body to eliminate stagnant waste and bring balance to your body. 

  Anyway I'm going to conclude this post here. I don't want to settle for the results that most people get and are getting. I want to do different to get different. That goes with everything in my life. I want to do what most people are unwilling to do. Yes it is hard at times and even I have struggled. There are many things to work out but it is worth it. Practice makes progress and ever day, every minute is a moment that we can change everything. I have made a step by step plan for going plan based. It is easy to follow and is a six week Step by Step plan made just for you, it's FREE! 

  Disclaimer; I am not a doctor, nor do I want to be. I am a person with thyroid trouble that is determined to effect a natural cure or remedy for myself. I am not perfect and I do struggle with pretty much everything lol! I have learned the hard way just how important thyroid health is. I hope that I can help you figure it out too. Remember your health is your responsibility. Be your own practitioner. Fight for yourself! It's not easy but it's got to be worth it. If you're like me you don't want to be dependent on pharmaceutical companies for the rest of your life, than you may find this information useful. Natural cures take time and it requires that you change just about everything in your life.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life! What are you going to do with it?

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope this helps you in some way!

Addiction and the foods killing you!

 Addiction and the foods you are eating

Did you know that the very "food" you are addicted to and can't stop eating is the very substances destroying your health? We are addicted to the very things killing us, This is a problem!

Warning! blunt truth contained here. This message may offend some people...

break free from food addiction

       Below is a video! This is one doctor I actually enjoy listening too lol! He is a Cardiologist and speaks the truth about the food people eat and how it effects our bodies. I found this video about addiction to be specifically important because I see this addiction every day in my life. I have personally been dealing with some food addiction. In fact before I decided to go without certain foods, I never considered myself addicted to anything! Now I really can see just how foods effect me and just how addicted I was to them throughout my life. I also see it in members of my family and from people everywhere. 

       Little do we know that we are addicted to the drugs in foods and the drug foods like coffee, sugar, dairy. This is the real epidemic out there in this world, and it's just as real as a meth addiction. And it's just as damaging as a heroin addiction. The worst part is no one even realizes it or seems to care! In fact when you change to a clean fruit/plant based diet you will most likely be ridiculed and shamed. People (generally speaking) are so addicted to their "foods" that they feel threatened when you suggest eating any different. Even in people who are sick, fat and tired. They just don't see through the addictions and just how much they need to change. Believe me, I know lol! It's like the meth head saying they don't have a problem but consistently trying to get others to do it with them. Misery loves company and addicts do too!

      This type of addiction to processed aka, drug foods is destroying people at a rapid pace! They are blinded. and blind sided by it! When we eat these foods we are so numb and dumbed down. It blinds us to what we really need to be healthy. It makes people look down on those who want to do differently, and make those changes. I am speaking from my experience. I can also say that many people t I know have been a big support. I thank you if you are one of those people :) Sure it is easy to think that meth head over there is addicted. But no one wants to point that finger back at themselves and see their coffee addiction, cheese addiction, bread addictions. The fact that they can't even go one week, or one month in their life without it should prove enough!  

      From my experience the only way to stop this addiction is to STOP consuming it and effectively detox the body so that you never want it again. Why? Because we we can only crave what we have consumed before. If you never used heroin, you will never crave heroin, right? If you have never been a cigarette smoker you will never crave cigarettes. It is that simple but like any addiction it may be difficult to kick. Unfortunately if you have ever ate pizza, French fries, donuts, etc.. you will definitely crave it at some point in the day, week or month. And no amount of those foods are healthy for you. But you can detox the body from all of these drugs and eliminate your desire to ever have them. 

      Addiction begets addiction, disease begets more disease, remember that! 

      Not one natural food, eaten in a natural way is addicting. Once you are on the journey you will see this for yourself. I certainly have learned this lesson from experience. I have seen the difference between eating clean and eating addictive substances. You can go off track so easily just like any other addiction. You just got to keep practicing it! Need to keep staying on track with your goals of freedom from addiction and you will get there. 

Health is more important than anything you are addicted too!

      If you don't believe that you are addicted to the processed foods you eat, try going without them. You will feel and see that you are in fact addicted to it. For example if you think that you aren't addicted to bread products for example, stop eating it! If you think that you are not addicted to coffee, try going without it. What about the cheese that people tell me they cannot live without? If you can't go without it, even though it is better for you not to have it, you are addicted! These substances offer nothing in the way of nutrition or anything good for your body, yet you consume them every day. You are tired, and bloated every day! Yet you still put these things in your mouth! YOU ARE ADDICTED so wake up about it and start making changes every day to free yourself from it. 

Try eliminating these things from your diet and you will see just what a junky you are! Like wise after some time off the stuff you will see how much better you can feel.

      It will take some will power at first, and you will need to remove all of the old waste from your bowels. You will need to eat a clean or cleaner diet. You will even need to get rid of candida and parasites from your body too. Once you bring balance to your body with fasting, eliminating waste and right eating, you will over come any addiction! Watch the video below for motivation and more information. Then you will need to do the work eliminating your waste and eliminating all drugs in any form from your life! And come back here for more information about how to actually do this. 

      You can check out my step by step plan to wean yourself off of addictive animal based foods and all processed foods. And just get going on this! Your life depends on it and you are most definably worth more than the drugs you are eating. Isn't your life worth more than pizza? Than why do you trade your life for pizza? Why are you feeding drugs to your kids? These are things I think about all the time. It keeps me going. I want to be a great example to my children. I want to show them that there is a better way. 

       By the way eating clean and feeling your best is NOT about living forever. I get that objection all the time from people. God knows how long you have. I am 42 years old and if I die at 80 I am half way through my life right now. Eating clean is about feeling your best now, living your best life now! Being free NOW from addiction and a dependency on Industry garbage! Life is short and you don't want to make it shorter. Don't you want to have a better quality of life? Because that is what this is all about. When it comes to food it is quality, not quantity! The same good go for life. Certainly we want to live 100 years, but most people do not. What about having the best quality of a life that you can no matter how long that ends up being? 

Today is the first day of the rest of your life! What are you going to do with it?

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope this helps you in some way!

A Step by Step Eating Plan Made for You!

Allow the body to cleanse and heal itself.

A STEP BY STEP PLAN for My friend Nicole and anyone who wants to know exactly how to transition to a plant based diet, and begin the healing process for themselves. 

First a few things to remember! 

Change your mindset and forget about what you think you want. 
Focus on what you need to do to achieve your goals.
Keep moving forward!
Don't beat yourself up for not being perfect. 
Practice makes perfect! 
Focus on cleansing natural food. 
Nutrient dense, not calorically dense foods.
Good food water, air, sunshine, environment, thoughts and habits goes a long way!
Only you can provide yourself with these vital ingredients for a healthy life.
I realize there is a lot you may need to change.
I have included them here in order of what I feel is the most important.
The goal here is to achieve the health goals that you desire.
There is no quick fix or magic pill.
You can do this!

        You may do each step in a one day or one week, or what works for you. You decide for yourself how much time you are going to need to put into each step. So for example step #1 can be your first week, and then #2 your next week, etc.. Remember that each week you are giving up something or making a necessary change like eating legumes instead of meat. Eating your proteins with greens and veggies and NOT grain, and grain products which modern diets are accustomed too. FYI; this is a general guide that I feel most people would be happy with. It is a great start and you will be well on your way to transitioning to a fully raw or mostly raw fruit based diet with simple salads if that is what you want to do. Remember your success is up to you. You are the only one who can do it for yourself! I am not a doctor, nor do I want to be.

I have made this plan as simple and as easy as possible for most people who really want and need to make a change for their health. Remember when you are suffering form body breakdown, toxemia, the dis-ease of the body, nothing will change if you don't change! But you will get worst if you don't make the necessary changes! Notice that for this plan we will be following proper food combining rules as well. I will include a food combining chart below. Eating proper foods in the right combinations is important for the digestion and elimination of the foods you eat. Please let me know what you think about this in the comments below. 

Remember each step can be done in a day or a week, or even a month. You may also mix up the order to fit your needs. Feel free to print this out if you can. Take notes, highlight key points, especially the steps that you most need to work on.  Most important in your transitioning to a truly healthy plant based, raw or mostly raw diet is patience, and the will to be at your best health. Once you have mastered a step move on to the next one and so on. If totally vegan is not your goal then just make sure to follow the proper digestion tips for eating proteins. 

Step 1.  Avoid grains, grain products. These are very damaging to the GI, mucus forming, INFLAMMATORY and clog up the system like glue! 
  • If you must have a grain like rice once in awhile please choose long grain brown rice, quinoa and gluten free oats. That way you get fiber and nutrition that you need while transitioning to a more mucus free diet of mostly fresh raw foods. Organic is always best of course. In the case of brown rice and quinoa eat it with a lot of veggies, and greens NOT A PROTEIN, for proper digestion and elimination. Oats can be included with lots of fruit for, and a bit of honey or agave for a sweet and filing meal. 

Step 2.  Give up dairy products, and eggs. These items are highly mucus forming, acid producing, and cell damaging. 
  • Eat real food instead. Fruit for breakfast ALWAYS, avocado instead of cheeses, and home made nut based salad dressings, instead of the milk and soy based variety. if you want a breakfast that is filling and healthy choose fruit only, or the oatmeal with lots of fruit. If you must eat yogurt, learn how to make it yourself from oat milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk. Obviously it is best to make these items yourself too. YouTube and a Google search can help you with that. 

Step 3. Give up energy drinks, soda, and coffee. These items are addicting, acid forming, and very damaging to the body especially the GI tract.
  • Include green tea with honey or agave, hot lemon water or herbal tea instead. You may also make lemonade sweetened with a good quality natural sweetener. And don't forget that pure water is also a good option lol! 

Step 4.  MINIMAL PROTEINS, like fish or chicken and soaked well cooked beans/legumes are good  for transitioning. You must eat proteins with a salad and or vegetables ONLY! DO NOT EAT RED MEAT AT ALL! Especially if you are suffering from any kind of bowel issues. It is a bad idea for diverticulitis especially, because it's not easily digested and sits in the GI tract for a long time causing putrefaction and bacteria that can eat away at the intestinal lining.
  • You should use whole beans, legumes as a meat substitute, which is better. Soak them over night and use a slow cooker for easy preparation in the morning. Beans are great on top of salads too! Proteins such as beans, legumes, meats must be eaten with vegetables and greens ONLY for better digestion and elimination. Eating proteins with grains, bread products is a bad idea and will not help the digestion of these hard to digest foods, and cause proteins to sit in the intestines to long. 

Step 5.  Eat mostly fruits of all kinds, greens, vegetables, as much as possible. 
  • Remember beans, legumes and certain meats are fine for transitioning and a few times per week but only eaten with greens salads and or vegetables. The bulk of your diet should consist of FRUIT, AND EASILY DIGESTED GREENS AND VEGGIES. An optimal cleansing and healing diet consists of at least 75% fresh, ripe raw fruit, greens and vegetables. For cooked options; you may steam your veggies if you have a problem digesting them raw. Also simple salads with lots of raw water rich greens is best. You may use baked or steamed veggies for a salad topping also. Choose a fruit based or nut based dressing that you make at home. Stewed fruit in a bit of lemon juice is a nice cooked fruit option as well. 
A diet that consist of only raw and cooked fruit, greens, vegetables, some seeds, and minimal nuts is a healthy mucus lean healing diet.  Omit the nuts for easier digestion and mucus free diet. I find that easily digested seeds like sunflower seeds, chia seeds are best for a raw and mostly raw plant based diet. (IMPORTANT) those who have been diagnosed with diverticulitis/diverticulosis must avoid foods with small seeds like strawberries or chia seeds until intestinal lining has healed from pitting and your doctor gives you the OK. Talk to your doctor about what seeded foods you should avoid. Nuts like almonds, cashews, walnuts etc.. can be hard to digest and must be soaked and blended for best results. This is why I say use nuts soaked and blended as a salad dressing.

Step 6. Avoid spicy veggies like hot peppers and spicy salsas. 
  • If you are like me and have GI issues, then you will understand why I mention this step. Spicy foods may taste good but they are not good for your Gastrointestinal Tract at all, especially if you already have digestion issues. Spicy veggies, foods can prove to be a real pain in the ass on your next bowel movement, if you know what I mean. It's just better to avoid foods that literally burn your insides. Choose healing herbs instead, turmeric is a great one to add into your diet daily. If you want a little spice that won't burn you, choose garlic and ginger instead. 

This last step is in addition to all of the progress you have already made. If you need to lose weight or just want to give your body a break from all of it's hard work everyday.

Step 7. Practice intermittent fasting. GIVE YOUR BODY A BREAK!  
  • Breakfast at noon is a great place to start, that is what I have been doing for a few years. Also stop eating by the evening like 7 or 8pm. Adjust times to fit your schedule of course, but make sure there is about 15-20 hours of the day, including sleeping when you are not eating. Activity is fine during intermittent fasting just not for a long term fasting session of more than a day. Rest during long fasts for best results. The point of fasting is to simply give the body a break. Consider that the most energy demanding activity that the body performs is digestion. When the body is digesting all the time, especially while sleeping it uses up available energy that the body needs for the healing process. This is why sleeping on a full stomach is not a good idea, because that is when the body does most of it's healing. You should stop eating a couple hours before going to bed. Likewise get enough sleep too!
