I know that prescription drugs are not accepted in the raw world.
I have a non serious health condition that I am trying to manage right now. I’ve been vegan for a few years, vegetarian prior to that. I gradually became raw over the past year, I was trying to take it slow and steady. I have now been 95% raw for over 3 months (other 5% is pretty much items from the dead food list, some nuts, dried fruit, bee pollen and agave nectar/raw honey). I went raw in an effort to overcome a health condition. Strangely enough, my health condition has progressively worsened over the past three months. Also, another problem I have is severe acne that has worsened considerably as well since going raw.
My doctor has advised me that I need to seek treatment which will mainly consist of an intense prescription drug. I will begin treatment soon. I’m disappointed because I thought raw could really help me. It has in many ways, I feel more energized, I love nurturing my body and my body loves the food I am eating.
My main questions are:
Is it wise to continue my raw diet, despite the fact that I will be putting a toxic prescription drug in my system?
I am not sure if I should continue my raw diet, considering my condition has worsened since commencing it three months ago. Maybe my body is just getting used to the diet and I am dispelling toxins gradually (even though I did not have a SAD diet prior to becoming raw). Possibly I have an allergic reaction to certain foods? Has anyone ever experienced this? Symptoms of a current condition worsened by turning raw? I am not seeking medical advice at all, just curious of other people’s experiences.
Sorry for the long winded post everyone. Thanks in advance for any advice from all you beautiful people.
