I cook some food and plate it.
I put a small pile of finely chopped raw garlic on the plate as a side.
I take a good mouthful of the food.
After which I put in a little of the finely chopped raw garlic in my mouth.
All gets finely ground by my teeth before I swallow.
When I have finished with the plate I have ingested plenty of finely chopped raw garlic.
The food that went with it seems to act as a fine buffer.
The result has been smooth ingestion with zero unwanted effects on bodily systems.
This way, every bite is flavorful, tasteful (I actually like garlic), and healthful.
The raw garlic is not too much for me if I do it this way.
It is easy for me.
It has become a new natural way of eating for me.
It was not hard at all to come to this.
I learned that taking a spoonful of raw garlic by itself was not the way for me at all. Far too harsh.
I found the idea was and is to get a sufficient amount in me in as pleasurable and balanced a way as is possible.
Incorporation of healthful practices into daily life, regime, is what I give thought to, to practice.
I try to stay away from extremes.
I try to find a new balance that is better than the old ways.
I have tried and succeeded in making transitions as smoothly as is possible in a number of ways and on a number of fronts.
Does this make any sense to you?
I hope this helps, if even a little.
The exchange of notes here on CZ has been invaluable to me in dealing with what I have been dealt.
I endeavor to contribute only insofar as I am able to share what has worked for me.
Which may not be for everybody.
Which brings it back to that exchange of notes.
Which is what this post constitutes.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Simply an exchange of notes.
