If you come to SonRidge, you might as well be prepared to make adjustments. And this almost always means fundamental food-intake change.

Buying high-quality certified organic food is important. Organic foods limit your exposure to synthetic insecticides, fungicides and herbicides. They limit your intake of growth hormones and antibiotics and they are less likely to contain genetically modified ingredients. Buying and eating organic is an important part of getting "good things in."

Food combining is important, too. For example, never eat fruit with complex carbs—i.e., bananas on oatmeal or orange juice with toast. Don't, don't, don't do that! It causes fermentation instead of digestion, and this causes intestinal yeast growth along with alcohol production. The alcohol burdens your liver as it struggles to neutralize an alcohol by-product, acetaldehyde. (This is just one example!)
