View Full Version : Spinning sensation - detox?
07-13-2006, 12:35 PM
So the same thing what I cut off last time with eating a little cooked, came back again. It happened because yesterday I ate just fresh fruits and veggies, not even any seeds or avocados. And I exersized a lot too. All that sped up my detox. Yesterday night I already wanted to eat some nuts to stop it, but decided to see what happens. Obviously I will need to go through it earlier or later. The whole night I was going to the bathroom and the room was still spinning. This morning I am almost fine, spinning sensation almost gone.I think it was mercury detox.
Did you have anything similar?

Yes Yes and Yes again!
I have had this happen on many occasions. Typically when my stomach is empty and I eat a piece of fruit or smoothie. I think it is the blood sugar activly doing its thing. I have to sit or lay down and let it pass.
I spent too many years with cruddy food in me and now it ZOOMS through my body! It is a great thing to actually feel the good food effecting your body.
I would watch when it happens and I bet it happens near or after eating :)
I also have had low blood pressure for years and now it is stabilized and I feel GREAT!!

My head spins if I don't eat enough protein.

Both my husband and I experienced spinning when our diet was not all-raw. Whenever we are all-raw, no spinning.

For me actually that happens when I am raw without too much fat and just fresh - no dried. I am all raw now for almost 8 months, if you don't count a little cooked after last spinning episode - it took me 2 weeks then to get completely raw though. When I ate some cooked - it did stop. Now it stoped anyway, even all raw. I hope it won't be back.

It may seem strange to some that the same symptom can be experienced in very different circumstances. Like, you might have a symptom if you've recently cleaned up your diet, or you might experience the same symptom if you recently transgressed. That's because the harmful substances in cooked food, meds, herbs, spices, etc., affect cells and tissues as they are entering the body the same way they affect them after they've been stored for a long time and are finally liberated during elimination.
To understand what needs to be done, it's important to have the information about what foods our bodies are suited for (which can be known definitively, despite the popular belief that it's a matter of opinion), and which ones should be avoided. Then all you have to do when you get a symptom is evaluate your recent diet and make some improvements. If you've recently done that, you can rest assured that the symptom is a result of cleansing and you need only rest, perhaps stop eating altogether (or eat lightly, depending on the severity of the symptom), and marvel at your body's ability to fix itself.
If you find that eating a certain food or macronutrient (i.e., protein) keeps a particular symptom away, it's most likely the case that you are suppressing the symptom because digesting the food in question is difficult for your body (sometimes this even happens with 'optimal' foods, in which case the condition of your body will be impeding your ability to digest otherwise good foods) and your body can't eliminate stored wastes while it's trying to deal with that particularly difficult food. This is not a good reason to continue eating the food, but rather to omit it for awhile and let the body do its thing. It's unimagineable that a person eating any kind of raw diet wouldn't get enough protein, calcium, nutrients, minerals, b12, etc., in the diet. If this were a real possibility, eating certain foods to keep symptoms at bay would be legitimate. But, it's not. In all situations where symptoms are present except certain cases of wasting-stage disease (cancer, AIDS), fasting makes them go away. If they were caused by nutrient deficiency, they would get worse, since during a fast the body is getting NO nutrients.
Dizziness is the effect that certain substances have as they are carried via the bloodstream to the brain and delicate mechanisms in the inner ear that control our balance. If a person is dizzy, s/he needs to rest and stop eating so the body can devote all its resources to circulating the offending substance out of the body. Dizziness is only serious if you don't heed the call to rest, because of the risk of falling. It is a symptom associated with serious degenerative conditions and for that reason is taken seriously by doctors. But if you're already adopting the habits that create health, you needn't worry.
All the best,

It has been 100-plus degrees here in Los Angeles. Could it be related to that? Despite my best efforts, the heat over the past few weeks of continuous, outrageously hot weather without relief has caused me a couple issues, though not dizziness. However, dizziness is a common symptom, among many others of this type of weather. The fires burning wild isn't helping.
Keep hydrated with fruit and water, and move a bit slower. Perhaps do less cardiovascular exercise or less intensely; or do it very early morning. Indoors would be okay, but early as well so it's not so stifling in the gym or other place you choose.

Just an update - spinning sensation did not come back and I stayed raw! It is not the same as dizziness. It is literally when room starts spinning, not just the dizzy head sensation. I do not hink it is related to heat, we live several blocks from the beach.

my heads spins during my heavy days during my time of the month and avocados always do the trick.
