I’m asked quite often about cleanses, and if they can heal health conditions, illnesses, and diseases. I think cleanses are great at kick starting a healthy diet and giving someone a good break from foods that are causing inflammation, imbalances, and disease in the body. But I don’t think a short term cleanse will heal anyone unless they make permanent changes to their diet and lifestyle after the cleanse, and figure out what might be contributing to the problem to begin with.
Here’s my opinion of the extreme diets being promoted today!
There are few ‘myths’ floating around natural health circles that bother me, one being that morning sickness is a result of being too toxic. Over the years I’ve heard people say this and when I was pregnant and had morning sickness throughout my entire pregnancy, I received emails and comments from people telling me I must be very toxic to be having so much morning sickness and for so long! Do I agree with this view, no, not at all, and in today’s video I discuss why and what I believe can be the contributing factors that can cause morning sickness and some of the things one can do to eliminate it or decrease it.
Transitioning off of a diet you have been on for a very long time is never easy. I can definitely admit that!! As most everyone knows, it’s only been in recent years that I started eating meats, fish and animal products again. I was a strict vegetarian for 20 years and on a 100% raw vegan diet for almost 4 years following that, but because of a vitamin B12 deficiency I developed while on the raw vegan diet, I decided to incorporate meats, fish, seafood and animal products back into my diet to reverse the deficiency. That dietary change was massive for me, on all levels, and I can be the first one to admit that during the transition I fumbled and made mistakes. In today’s video I share the three biggest mistakes I made during the first 6 months of transitioning off of the raw vegan diet and what I learned from that experience.
