I have been mostly raw (most days 95%-100%, a few days 50% or so) for about a month now, and I am having my first period since I changed my diet. I am experiencing a LOT of pain and cramping. Before starting to eat like this I never had such bad cramping or pain (except years ago, when I was still a teenager). So, a couple of questions... How come now I am experiencing such pain? Can it be part of detox? What can I take for the pain? I am using heat on my lower back and it helps somewhat, but I am seriously tempted to take a motrin (and I avoid and hate taking meds)... it hurts that much!
Have any of you experienced something similar (hopefully not!)? What have you done if so?
