I definitely understand. There are some people I just don't tell when I am on the cleanse. Just tell you mom that everyone does things differently and her way is not necessarily the right way. For example, it seems like every day you hear that a supposedly helpful drug that was approved by the FDA is now killing or permanantly damaging people. Tell her to look at all of the obesity, heart disease, cancer, and a myriad of other problems that people have while following a so-called "normal" lifestyle. If that doesn't work, just refuse to talk about the subject that is usually what I have to do with a lot of subjects with my parents. I am 39 and they still act as though I am 10. Good luck!!
