One of the questions I am often asked is what is the best way to transition to a plant based diet?...my answer is consider doing a cleanse. Preparing your body with a nourishing detoxification plan is the greatest tipping point when it comes to transitioning to a plant based diet. Not only will it make the shift smoother, but it will also enable your body to rid itself of old stagnant parasites and toxins and will improve overall digestion and the absorption and digestion of food and nutrients. Once your body is in a clean state you reduce your chances of developing lifestyle diseases and begin to heal any ailments within the body.
