View Full Version : I feel like I am aging instead of the de-aging!

Help! I don't know if it is the raw food and getting the toxins out, but I feel like my face has aged instead of looking younger, my eyes had huge bags underneath them - I did mess up a couple of times and eat some organic chips..so maybe that is it..or maybe the lack of sleep- I normally sleep from 7-8 hours a night. Has anyone else had this problem? :confused:

I was 100% raw...very strict for about 6 straight weeks, and developed dark circles under my eyes. I was alittle freaked out. Someone told me that this was detox and it would go away. I'd like to tell you that I stayed 100% true, and the circles cleared up, but I fell off the bandwagon...and have stayed 100% raw about 60 % of the time :o I'm working on getting back to that 100% (100% of the time!) and I know I won't freak this time...detox will "clean it all out" so to speak. How long have you been raw...you are probably detoxing something!

dark circles under the eyes can be so many things, I find I have bags when I eat dairy, each person is different.
I personally don't worry about any of that, I figure it is my body's way of clearing out all that stuff.
You can use witch hazel or cucumbers on your eyes to relieve some puffiness.
also they can be an iron deficiency, or not enough water, and kidney function has diminished, per Dragggon (who was a medic)

I don't eat any dairy so that can't be it..I could try the cucumbers underneath my eyes...what do I need to eat to get more iron? it is encouraging to know that maybe I am just detoxing, I have been trying to make sure I stay away from the sea salt also..I try to use things like garlic and peppers to flavor my foods...I have been on raw food for 32 days now so I am probably still detoxing..
