View Full Version : Help for a headache!
05-24-2006, 06:12 PM
I went raw yesterday and all has been well but this afternoon I am starting to get a killer headache. I'm assuming it's part of the detox process.
Any ideas on what to do?? I'm in my office for another 90 minutes before I can go home and slide into bed and try to sleep it off. But, I'm not sure I will be able to fall asleep the way my head is feeling.
Also, any idea how long detox usually takes? I have been vegetarian for over 30 years so I'm hoping detox won't be as bad for me. I'm sure I can hang in there. I just have no idea how to deal with it except by taking some drugs.
Oh those detox headaches hurt so much :( All I can suggest is tons of water and a nice soothing bath (with epsom salts all the better). For me personally, I just had a headache the first day and that's it. Since then I've had the odd day where I feel a bit dizzy at times. Everyone is different though. Hopefully it won't last long. Bananas are supposed to help you sleep... maybe that'll help tonight a little. Good luck and keep us posted.

drugs will postpone your detox. If you can do without it sure would be good. I hope your head is feeling better by now. I know all about that. I have migraines. I had one a few days into my raw diet. It lasted about 4 hours or so and then began to ease. I hope this is the last of those things. Warm rag, warm sea salt bath, Water, mediatation, sleep, peace, quite, dark. Get to feeling better!

Thanks so much. I took a bath and drank a lot of water and went to bed. It was difficult to fall asleep but I finally did and this morning I still have a dull headache but nothing like yesterday. Hopefully it will go away very soon.

ShantiDass, so sorry to hear about your headache, but it will pass.
lots of rest and water, rest and water, soft lights, or all dark, keep hands warmer than your head, ice on your neck and heat on your head, rest and drink water.
detox comes in spurts, it takes years to totally detox, but you may feel great for months or years, then have a headache, or the sniffles or a rash, everyone is different, just be happy to get that stuff outts' ya!
