Hi all. I have been doing pretty good going raw. But I have this problem and I am wondering if it is normal and will pan out after being raw for a while. Since going raw I am having a problem holding my urine. I have to go to the bathroom allllllllll the time and when it comes it is almost uncontrollable, to the point I don't want to go far from the house. Is it because of the increase in fluids that my bladder is not use to? (Liter of green smoothie every morning and drinking water during the day) Or should I be worried about and incontinence issue. I did not have this problem before going raw.
Anyone else experience anything similar?

could be that your kidneys are cleansing. I am compelled to suggest to not worry about, stay raw, and your body will heal itself. I have been raw almost 3 weeks now and have this very weird eczema kind of thing happening on my top lip that is not going away. It's annoying. And not particularly attractive! But I am trusting my body that it is detoxing itself whatever way it needs to. I know it will pass. But some really GOOD news is that I have FAR LESS hair loss. It was coming out in handfulls when I shampooed and combed it out. Now barely any. YEA!
Hang in there and trust your body!!! It will show you miracles.

You're consuming stuff that has a lot more water than what you were consuming before. From everything I've heard (and my own experience) this should level off. I think your body will adjust, since you didn't have incontinence before. Keep us posted.

If you can find them, they are good to munch on to support continence. Something to do with their zinc content? tin? Ahhh, I don't recall. I need something to munch on for my CRSS. :)
The other things is that if you are eating a lot of raw produce, you are taking in more water naturally, so having to pee more would also be natural. I know I do.

It could be that you have a magnesium deficiency. It could cause PMS symptoms in women. Chocolate is high in magnesium. I remember I use to crave chocolate BAD during my time of the month. Try eating foods that are high in magnesium and see if that helps you stop craving it.
