I have been slowing transitioning into raw foods for the entire year and plan to go 100% raw starting on the first of January. Right now I'm at about 50% and love the feeling live foods give me. My only hang up is that I am still on the pill. I have been on the pill for about 4 or 5 years and it really helps with my acne and with my monthly cramping. The only time I did go off the pill was last year for about two months. During that time I had the worst break outs I have ever experienced in my life. The breakouts were unbearable. I had dozens of cysts around my jawline and chin that were very painful. Socially and emotionally I was a wreck! I went straight back on the pill and within about 4 months my hormones became regulated and my skin cleared up to almost perfect.
My concern is that when I start my detox journey I would love to be free of all toxins including prescription drugs and over the counter drugs. This is the only medication I take at the time. Would sticking with my birth control routine hinder my detoxification progress? Are there any raw foodist out there that keep taking the pill or any other medications?
Right now I am not planning on quitting birth control, but I would love advice on the subject. Thank you so much for your help. I love this site :)
