How to help others with all you've learned

Health Evangelism

Once we start feeling the benefits of our new habits and the candida diet it's almost inevitable that we will want try to influence the diet and lifestyle choices of those we care about.

Rather than alienate those around you by preaching, I encourage you to acknowledge the urge and to refrain from acting on it. Instead focus on your own healing to be the best inspiration possible. Hint- you may have gone too far if you see a glazed look in their eyes (i.e. too much information ).

Sharing in small bites
If you know someone very well and if you feel they will listen with authentic concern and non-judgement, you might want to tell them what you've been exploring. Still it's usually best to try to give short, summarized 'sound bytes' and allow them to ask questions rather than overwhelm them with information.

Leading by healthy example
Give your loved ones some time to adapt to your new choices. They may feel frustrated about wanting to feed you but not knowing how and they may wonder if what you are choosing is healthy for you.  You may also find that diet choices can raise philosophical debates (best avoided at least during eating).

If you care about positively influencing others,  you can likely have the most impact by quietly, confidently demonstrating your new ways. Success with your own approach is likely the most inspiring model.

Each of us will start when we are ready and from where we are at.
