I just recently decided to “go raw” after my sister sent me an article about a woman who had suffered from debilitating fibromyalgia, depression, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, panic attacks, acne, and hair loss, etc. Apparently she felt an almost instant relief of symptoms/conditions after switching to a raw foods diet. I have developed the exact same conditions over the past ten years (I’m only 28!), and am perplexed as to how or why I have developed all of these conditions. I am also frustrated after trying medication after medication to either get rid of or alleviate some of the conditions. I did some research, and noticed that quite a few women switching to a raw foods diet were doing so due to suffering from the same conditions. Is it just a coincidence, or have there been links to these conditions and diet? Or are the conditions/symptoms really just one all-encompassing, mis-diagnosed condition?
