"z" is for Zen

NUTRITIONAL Zen

It’s both something we are— the true reality of our toxic state, our individual biochemistry and our bad habits and cravings expressing themselves moment by moment—and something we do—a disciplined practice of consuming foods through which we can realize the joy of detoxifying and healing.

"Do you realize you spelled the word phaze wrong on your website?

 

From 2009-2010 I was exposed to high levels of Stachybotrys, Chaetomium, Aspergillus, Penicillium, Wallemia and Cladosporium in a home that I rented. 
 

From 2011-2013 I went through 2 long and grueling years of mold detox to save my life.  In 2013 I started the website SurvivingToxicMold.com and created the original "Mold Detox Diet".

In 2019 I renamed it PhazeMoldDiet for my proprietary "phases" that helped me achieve my goals. This is when I embraced the term I like to call:  "Nutritional Zen"

 


What is Nutritional Zen?

It’s both something we are— the true reality of our toxic state, our individual biochemistry and our bad habits and cravings expressing themselves moment by moment—and something we do—a disciplined practice of consuming foods through which we can realize the joy of detoxifying and healing.

It is not a belief system or fad diet to which one converts. There is no religion, dogma or doctrine. Nutritional Zen is the direct experience of what we might call our ultimate truth and reality, or the absolute, yet it is not separate from the ordinary, the relative. This direct experience is our healing journey with food as a tool.

 

Embrace the "Z" in "PhazeMoldDiet" by breathing in with full awareness while you are cooking. Taste the breath. Appreciate it fully. Now breathe out, slowly, with equal appreciation. Give it all away; hold onto nothing. Breathe in with gratitude that you are gathering the ingredients that heal; breathe out with love. Receiving and offering—this is what we are doing each time we inhale and exhale. To do so with conscious awareness, on a regular basis, is the transformative practice we call Zen.
