View Full Version : Raw Emotions!
Eating a totally raw diet has balanced my emotions.
I feel calm and generally at ease with the world.
(high raw 3 weeks followed by totaly raw 5 weeks)
I am ok today, but for the past two days, I have felt tired, irritable, angry and agressive.
Irrational behaviour to say the least! just like PMT symptoms but I am nowhere near that place in my cycle.
I even thought about having a glass of wine last night, something I would have done pre raw!
It wasnt a craving, just fancied a glass to help me relax!
Im glad that i didn't as im sure that would have led to all sorts of cravings!
Has anyone else experienced this, would love to hear from you! :)

that last two days I have felt EXACTLY the same-and nowhere near my cycle either! Making me crave cooked to numb out too. wow. Maybe it's something astrological going on. I have to use a lot of will power to not eat cooked and not nosh constantly on the more dense raw foods too. wow. I wonder what is up....

I too had this happen to me once or twice after becoming pretty much 100% raw. I do not know what it was but except for these two times, I feel much like you do, stable and at peace with the world. Here is a link to a site about magnesium. A lack of magnesium is found to cause many symptoms including irritability, depression, and other pshycological disorders. I take a multi-vitamin and mineral suppliment because I have heard of depletion of minerals in soil from over farming, thus a deficiency in minerals in vegetables.

Oh yes, in fact, i can feel it coming on a few days before and the pattern of toxins moving. I actually enjoy it......kinda like stepping outside yourself and watching the madness :p
Interesting idea! Hadn't thought of that!
Thanks for the link.
I have not taken a supplement yet (except for a kelp tablet last wekend when i felt so cold.) It worked a treat!
Ive taken a look at the link and will consider it, thankyou. :)
It did cross my mind that it may be a build up of toxins.
This morning i woke with aching muscles, just like you can experience the day after strenuous exercise. (which I have not done)
My face was puffy and even after 10 hours sleep i felt very tired.
( I normally sleep for about 6 1/2, 7 hours and feel energised)
Anyway, after a shower, water and juice I was fine!
I have been keeping a note of all the 'strange' sensations and mysterious things that crop up then dissapear almost on a daily basis!
Its great to be able to share these experiences and find support here! :)

Mercury went direct on March 25th, and it is the most intense time right now, until March 28th, as it takes about 3 days to quit feeling effects of Mercury moving in and out of retrograde.
that might be it.
