Are migraines normal when going raw?

ThessaThessa Raw Newbie


I went raw on January 1st, 2019. On the 4th January I experienced a horrible migraine that lasted 4 days as well as vomiting. Is this a coincidence or perhaps my body responding to becoming raw and detoxing? 

Many thanks,

    Hi Thessa

    I think a lot of people get migraines when the body is getting rid of toxins. 

    How are you feeling now?

    They do seem to run in families. I'm glad you're feeling better.

    Hi Claire,

    I am feeling a lot better now.

    But maybe I might be prone to migraines? A few people in my family suffer from migraines.

    I went raw over night and for the first 2 weeks I had a headache every day and felt generally unwell. I think it was from the sudden change from sugar grains and meat.

    I had a headache that lasted two days. I was so glad to get to the other side of that one.

    First several cleanses often trigger headaches.
