  • low energy - detox?

    I would replace some of your middle of the day fruit with veg. You could be dealing with an overload of sugar. Even natural sugars can still be too much when they're on their own.

  • low energy - detox?

    i don't take notes of what i eat but i'm pretty sure i do? in the morning my breakfasts are either cereals (no gluten, with almond milk) or peanut butter toasts (no gluten), then thru the day most of the snacks i eat are fruits, sometimes i eat cashews or brown rice cakes (i eat snacks maybe 4-5 times during the day) i don't always have lunch but when i do it's either a soup or chicken nuggets with no gluten and my dinners are never the same but they're always pretty healthy. I also try to drink a lot of water. Thank you for replying, i really appreciate it!!

  • low energy - detox?

    Such a big change in your diet could definitely cause detox symptoms.

    Are you getting enough calories and a balance of nutrients?

  • eye strain and ears pain due to detox?

    ClaireT said:

    I didn't experience any sinus pain, just headaches and slow digestion in the beginning. Do you know anyone else with sinus issues right now? It could be the sinus thing that is going around. 

     no but my mom did tell me she had sinusitis during her detox as well so maybe it's just a family thing. my ears and eyes feel better now but i think i'm experiencing a brain fog and a weird feeling in my face, i've heard brain fog can be a detox syndrome so i'm hopping that's what it is

  • SEVERE joint pain.... Detox?

    I, too, have had some of the worst pain of my life as I deep detox. Also crystal-like scratchy stuff that I can feel behind my eyes. Doing vegetarian zero carb (no dairy) and fat fasting (many whole foods feed parasites). Old finally pathogens dying off, pelvis, hips, all long bones, due to super clean, ideal diet and nutrition with near daily exercise, Jacuzzi, and sauna, while also doing Inner Child, SRT, and other work to cleanse emotional and related stuff. Been to the doctor, know it's not organ failure, etc., Just deep cleanse of parasites in joints and muscles and bones. The intense pain previously caused me to stop detox (by eating off diet) but now I know what it is... my beautiful body ripping up and destroying and detoxing some nasties.

    I feel that as you’ve been raw for just under 2 weeks, it would be safe to assume that what you’re going throgh is detox. Everyone goes through it to a greater or lesser extent.

    I would go from high energy to feeling like not moving at all quite a bit in my first 2-3 months. The ‘experts’say that once you have eaten raw food for long enough for your body to realise that this is what it is going to be like from now on, and that you’re not going to poison it anymore, it gets to work rebuilding and healing your body. Even if you ate pretty healthily like you certainly sound you did, there is still detox, still healing and rebuilding to be done.

    For a lot of people I’ve met, the main part of the detox happens in the first 2-3 months of going high or all raw. The more raw you are, the more you will detox/heal, the quicker it will be. And you can do other things to aid the detox, various natural health methods like enemas, colonics, castor oil packs. Also massage, excercise, anything to get your blood flowing is good and helpful. But you’ll probably feel like just resting.

  • My Eyes Are Feeling Wierd

    Detox, detox and some more detox....I have experienced all kinds of symptoms while detoxing such as skin rushes, pimples, eye inflammation, arthritis, fatigue, sleepless nights, itchiness, eczema and much more....the thing is that when changing to a more healthy raw diet your body starts detoxing, even if you are not 100% raw, and this usually manifests into some painful symptoms. Contrary to what conventional medicine has made you believe these symptoms are beneficial to you as they are purging unwanted toxins out of your body, although painful this must be regarded as a purifying crisis and it'll disappear when your body has completed the detox process. This process may take weeks as it may take several months depending on the individual level of toxicity. Do not take pharma products otherwise you would simply work against the detox process and keep suffering for a longer time or just alt the process itself. I am no expert, no doctor but this is what I believe you are experiencing, if you like you may consult an experienced naturopath or you could also visit your conventional doctor but I know from experience he/she would not understand your journey and most likely do what they do best...prescribe you a toxic pharmaceutical product. Good luck to all of you.

  • Sinus problems part of detox?

    It feels like I have been taxing the forums lately, but I have a question I am really curious about at the moment. Lately my sinuses have been acting up like crazy, stuff is flowing out of my nose at a crazy rate and I am sneezing left and right and my head is really stopped up.

    I ran across an article about phBalance and having an alkaline body, one thing that was stated is:

    “Nasal passages relax and release mucus plugs. Blood relaxes and releases clots.”

    So does this mean my nasal passages are likely releasing all the crap that has been stuck up in there for so long? It started out feeling like things were just draining, then started to feel like a sore throat and cough and now it feels like an all out cold, but I don’t really feel tired.

    The article is at: http://doctorajadams.com/AcidAlkaline.html

    Lots of other interesting things there too.
