“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”Thomas A. Edison
“How do I apply all this cultured food stuff to my life? Where and how do I get started?” This is something that I hear quite often. People want to change their life and feel better but don’t know where to start. What makes people change their lives while others stay stuck in old patterns that don’t serve them?
I have to share with you what I have discovered and how I have changed my life. Trust me. I was where you are and wanted to change and felt so lost, but didn’t know how or what to do. In the beginning, before I ever found cultured foods, before I ever felt better, when I was so sick I could barely get off the couch, I did just one thing.
Whenever I felt despair, I would do this. I turned my mind and focus towards looking for the solution, and I hoped and prayed that the answer would come.
So many times we can get so caught up in the pain of what we are living that we can’t see the answers when they present themselves to us. Sometimes you’ve got to look inside and find your own way out. So day after day I repeated this. “The answers will come. I was not meant to live this way. It will come. It will come. Soon I’ll find the answers I can use.” If you are certain your life won’t change, you are right and I can’t convince you. However if I can give you just an inklying of hope, a mustard seed of faith, it can transform your health and change your life.
The answers did come. They came so swiftly and changed me so dramatically that it completely transformed my life. I did simple and small things at first. Then the ball started rolling and I got better and better until I didn’t even recognize my life. I just had to take the first step and trust and believe that I would be guided.
This is how change begins: With the strong desire to want change. Then you must turn your mind to look for the solution and look away from the pain of what you are living. Then the answers you are seeking will start to come to you.
Here is the other thing I know for sure: When you physically feel better, your life changes. Period. It just has to. When you feel alive inside emotionally, life appears different. You can handle challenges and difficulties with a lot more grace. Suddenly taking a walk seems like fun not drudgery. When you start to physically feel better, everything gets better. Let me tell you that you can not afford to not feel good. You are missing out on your life.

If you just try cultured foods, you will see what I and so many others are talking about. These foods work because you are made up of the foods you eat. These foods enhance what is already alive and working inside you: The millions of processes that are going on without your awareness, but long to work in harmony with you. Your body is your home that needs your help too. You will feel it. You will become alive inside and that will reflect on the outside in a powerful way.
It is so wonderful to me. Out of all I went through, I came out on the other side and am able help others find it too. It makes the pain so sweet. It can happen to you too. Just you wait and see.
The wish for healing has always been half of health. ~Lucius Annaeus Seneca
