    Life Force Lesson #11: Practice, Patience, and Perseverance

    Softness triumphs over hardness, gentleness over strength.
    The flexible is superior over the immovable.
    This is the principle of controlling things
    By going along with them, of mastery through adaptation.

    Pursuing an alternative lifestyle is never easy. It often elicits floods of resistance from family and social circles, and requires great patience and perseverance in the face of obstacles. For me, it took more than twelve years of dedicated practice to reach my current level of self-awareness and self-sovereignty. I also had the help and encouragement of extraordinary teachers.

    Ana's Lazy Girl Food Tip: Relax & Enjoy

    One of my biggest challenges with food and feeding myself properly has been emotional eating. I ate when I was scared, sad, lonely, tired, cold. And I ate to calm social anxiety, to celebrate happy events, and sometimes even to intentionally hurt myself when I was feeling like I’d really let myself down.

  • Testimonial from Leslie

    Hi Natalia,

    I am on Day 9 of your Detox 4 Women plan. I have been taking Candex since Day 1 and am about to finish an entire bottle of it. I didn’t have a yeast infection, but I assumed that I probably had too much Candida as a result of taking the pill for 10 years and eating acidic foods for a lifetime (26 years).
