Eating Right

  • Avoid processed foods; eat only whole foods that are nutrient rich.

  • Drink plenty of water – at least two liters per day – to help flush out waste and toxins.

  • Add fermented foods to your diet.

  • Use pro-biotics every day.  Be sure to buy fresh, high quality ones with live cultures.

  • Reduce or eliminate all inflammatory animal products and gluten.

  • Make sure your diet is comprised of lean, organic proteins, fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats such as flax oil, avocado, olives, and coconut.

  • Eat fiber-rich foods that will detox the bowels.

  • Avoid sugars, caffeine, and saturated fats.

  • Get as much rest as possible by following an early bedtime ritual.

  • Don’t aggressively exercise.  This can cause a backlash of pain and fatigue that lasts for days.  Instead, opt for gentle exercises such as swimming, yoga, pilates, and walking.

 

Protein Tip

Most meats are too contaminated for a body already under attack. 

But protein is what a healing body desperately needs. 

Doctors have suggested clean eggs, lots of them.
