Just curious if anyone has any advice:
Two years ago when I went raw, my detox symptoms were not that bad. Sure I had headaches and mood swings, but nothing that wasn't unbearable. Then, last year, with my senior degree project I gave my diet up completely, well, not completely, but its safe to say it wasn't my prime focus. So this time around going back to raw has been miserable... to say the least. The first thing that happened was a horrible sore throat, as if all my drainage was draining down my throat, which was then followed by the cold/sinus infection from hell. Now that I'm starting to recover from that, I have been having the weirdest feelings... as if everything is happening in slow motion. It's hard to describe, but yesterday I was wearing heels and I kept thinking 'I'm going to lose my balance and fall over.' Eventually it went away, but then again today, I can hardly function. My head is beyond foggy and again, I keep losing my balance. Some might be able to relate to this comparison, but I remember when I was younger and I would take Sudafed or any other cold/sinus medication and I hated it because I would turn my head and the room would slowly follow me--- Well, that's how I feel-- as if I'm effed up on Sudafed.
So I guess what I'm wondering is if anyone has experienced this same feeling and if so, is there anything I can do to help settle it down? Or maybe this is a sign that I'm not getting enough of a certain vitamin/mineral in my diet? Any information would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I should note, that this time around I changed my diet rather quickly... meaning in one day I gave up adderall, effexor, coffee, fish, dairy, etc... and Starting juicing greens like crazy. So maybe, that wasn't the brightest move, but hey, I'd rather get it all over with at once.
