  • fruit allergy?

    omshanti said:

    ok so 38 years is a long time to finally “hear ” my body, but two days ago my face broke out. it was sensitive and kinda “prickly”( this has occured for years off and on) so I didnt think to much about it since i live outdoors in the sun and dirt all day and just mousturized like usual and thought ill make an effort to keep my hair off of it for a few days. Well, I was talking to a friend of mine and she was saying how all raw wouldnt work for her because she breakes out in an itchy rash from most fruits! she said it started out with strawberries but that recently she had the same reaction with cherries! the breakout is as she described it like haveing a beard and mustache that is on fire. My rash was along my jaw line and hair line and i remember my lips burning and being dried out too. So do i have a fruit allergy and if so, how do i narrow down which one it is? Ive tried only two new fruits lately that is chermoya, and prickly pear but have consumed plumcots, rasberries, bananas,bosenberries , coconut,apples, dates tomatoes…it goes on and on( guess im taking this keep a varied diet thing to heart! grin) I dont usaully eat this much fruit at all but since going raw i have probobly tripled my intake of it…..any words of wisdom? will this allergy go away on a stricltly raw diet or will it worsen, thoughts?


    When I first started juicing last summer, I started breaking out around the chin and jaw. I tried different creams and cleansers. They were helpful but they didn’t stop the breakouts.

    A couple of months ago, I quit taking the cod liver oil capsules and flax seed pills I’d been taking. I also quit drinking almond milk and nuts (replacing them with fruit).

    My skin is clearing now thank goodness. My novice guess is that you could have started taking supplements and something in the supplements could be bothering you. I quit taking the almond milk because they say that people who eat nuts regularly have a higher level of mold in their blood. A higher mold level could lead to other serious health problems.

    It took over a year to figure out what was causing mine.

  • Sensitive teeth since bring raw

    I have no help to offer, but would just like to mention that I have also noticed my teeth become more sensitive since being raw. From what I’ve read, teeth problems don’t show up overnight. Eating raw only brings our awareness forth. So you can now feel the problems that were already there.

    As for fixes? I’m interested to see how other people have dealt with this as well. I’m just hoping it all works itself out!


    here is an epiphany i had, after my dentist told me you shouldn’t brush your teeth sooner than 30 minutes AFTER you eat. the acids in the food are still in your mouth and so you are effectively using those acids to brush your teeth. this can cause gum recession and teeth sensitivity.

    it MAY be what you are eating, but if you brush your teeth frequently, like me, it’s more likely to be what i just said.

    hope that helps.

    another thing: when we are stressed we brush our teeth and gums HARDER which isn’t good either. you really should be more “gently painting your teeth with your toothbrush” than “brushing” them.
