(NaturalNews) It is often difficult for people to completely drop old health compromising habits and pick up completely new ones, even if it is a better choice for their health. Due to that fact, transition is an important strategy. Here are 10 upgrades to transition to in order to reach that next level of health.

Water

Upgrading water is one of the most important factors to consider when becoming healthy. Ditch the contaminated tap and hormone disrupting plastic bottled water and choose spring, mineralized, or filtered water instead.

Smoothies

Don't start the most important meal of the day with coffee and sugary cereals. This is a bad way to wake up the digestive system and it will not adequately power anyone through their morning.

Opt for a superfood smoothie instead that is full of enzymes, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, fiber, and other health promoting nutrients. Incorporate high quality superfoods for the most benefits.

Juicing

Stop shopping in the juice aisle! There are very few juices on the shelves that are not "dead" and full of added sugar.

Have juice once a day, and make it 15 minutes prior to a meal so that the probiotics and enzymes can facilitate a healthier digestive process. It will also help energize the body, and the amount of nutrients in an 8 oz glass will provide more nutrients than many people get in one day.

Stevia

There is no debate that North America is on a sugar high. It is one of the most difficult things to avoid, since it is in near everything and most people are addicted to it in some shape or form.

A good way to ditch a lot of the sugar is to use stevia, an herbal sweetener that does not incur the negative effects of regular sugar, like feeding candida. Try it in smoothies, teas, and other beverages.

Salt

Salt has been demonized, but the devil is in the details.

In the process of making regular table salt, aluminum, ferro cyanide, and bleach are used. These toxic materials, combined with the fact that the salt has also been stripped of minerals, make table salt dangerous to ingest.

Upgrade to a good, full spectrum sea salt in order to avoid all of that dangerous processing and absorb the full spectrum of nutrients that come in a good sea salt.

Eat organic

By now, people have heard about organic or are already eating organic food as much as possible. For those who still haven't made that transition yet, its important to remember its one of the most important.

When eating organic, pesticides, GMOs, antibiotics, and hormones are avoided, and it helps protect the environment as well. For those on a budget, consider checking into the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists, to see which foods are most important to buy organic.

Eat more plant protein

According to the EWG, the scientific evidence is increasingly clear that eating too much of greenhouse gas-intensive animal meats boosts exposure to toxins and increases the risk of a wide variety of serious health problems, including heart disease, certain cancers, obesity and, in some studies, diabetes.

With complete plant proteins offering up to 60 percent of highly digestible protein, it makes sense to increase consumption of plant material.

Eat more raw, nutritious foods

People have grown accustomed to cooking their food, and perhaps a little too much. Cooking will destroy delicate enzymes and probiotics, and can also raise your level of cancer causing agents like acrylamides.

Choose to eat food more raw, and always incorporate some amount into each meal to allow the intact enzymes and probiotics to help digest the cooked portions.
