I have 2 main problems. Incorporating my diet while also feeding my family....and staying raw so I dont screw up my digestion.
So, I was just given a preliminary diagnosis of MS. Lesions were found in one part of my brain, so they want to do an MRI of my spine. I am also a type 2 diabetic. When I eat raw, not only do I feel better, but my digestion rocks! So to keep me healthy, I really need some advice.
I started experimenting with raw several years ago. I feel so great! Longest I went raw was 3 or 4 months if I remember correctly. It is hard to keep up with. I have a husband and daughter and a son to cook for(my son is now out of the house, but this was the case a couple years ago). They want things I am not able to have. I always go back to cooked food because not only does it smell and look good, but I feel like I am depriving them of what they enjoy. So I eat cooked food and I pay for it dearly. I get nauseaus, diarrhea, sweaty, MS flares (I am on the fence about the MS diagnosis, but for now it makes sense, so I will use that to describe in short what is going on with my body until the doc says otherwise), migraines, light headed, my abdomen feels like there is a ton of gas and distended,its like my intestines and bladder just shutdown. I have actually had abdominal bleeding. After an MRI and a colonoscopy, they didnt find anything. Sometimes, I dont have an appetite for a couple of days.But when I eat raw...I dont have any of these problems. The MS symptoms are far and few between.
How do I do this? How can I incorporate my raw diet and my husbands and kids needs? I also need to have my husband understand the importance of organic. I was told my the doctor to not eat anything with preservatives because it causes inflamation and I am possibly allergic to them as well. I even changed my shampoo and conditioner. I actually gave them up for quite a while. . I really want to stick with the raw diet. I know how to make the recipes, but I am having problems incorporating it into a family meal while meeting everyone's needs. I dont have the time to prepare 2 different meals. I am also really tired of getting sick when I eat cooked food.
