View Full Version : Headaches and Dizziness
08-21-2006, 09:37 AM
I am experiencing dizziness and headache and it's kind of been worrying me. I have not been 100% raw because I sometimes will eat some steamed veggies or soy nuggets.
Is there a way to stop this? And I know it's not detox and if it is...I can't handle it because I have classes!!! Perhaps I am not drinking enough?
I've had 3 bananas, one with almond butter; OJ; and a Lara bar so far today! And one bottle of water.
How do you know it's not detox?
I would say that those are symptoms of detox, and I do think that drinking more could help - I know that when those things happen to me that a glass of water helps.
But someone with more experience will probably come along and give better advice than me soon :D

I personally have terrible headaches when I'm detoxing. Maybe that's what you are going through?

headaches is a sign of detox, it usually stops when you are 100% raw, I would cut out the soy nuggets, soy always gives me terrible headaches, and if you are eating a lara bar, you need one bottle of water for each one of those bars, they are very dense, and also I'd drink more water, before I eat anything, I always drink at least a half bottle of water first, this makes sure I am really hungry not just thristy, as when we eat cooked, we forget how to tell which is which.
hope you feel better soon,
and remember pain is the body's way of telling us that something isn't right, so if you have a headache, it is important to trust your body, and to take care of yourself, lie down, no light, keep your head cool, your body warm, vinegar on your temples, keep your hands hot, smell lavendar, all of these help to relieve the pain of head aches.

Well, I don't want to detox! I'm just denying that it is. I don't want to embrace it at all. lol I have 18 hours of classes and maybe 10-15 hours of work as week, plus lessons. Yeah, I want to take an advil right now because I don't need this right now. Know what I mean? Also could either be my glasses or a low pressure system!
And thanks RP. I wish I might lay down for a moment before my next class, it's very very hot and I'm walking. So more water! I'm trying to stay 100% raw, but going to dinner is hard...all I can eat is a salad, which everything is in a bag and it's nasty! I've been eating maybe 5-10 bananas a day to keep my calorie intake up since I get all dizzy and kinda pass out when I don't get enough.

So tried on my old pair of glasses and those made my headache worse!! I've had more water and feel better for the most part. It's more of a pressure headache now and less dizziness. Shocking what water can do!! But yeah, it's supposed to rain today and I get this sometimes when there is a system coming through.
Oh and also I can't really detox as good as I want to because I am taking thyroid and ADD medications. Anyways, have to get off to class, but wanted to update. If anyone has more ideas or solutions, please post!

I've been there. Dizziness is hard.
I can say that headaches are almost always related to hydration, as is being dizzy. If it were me, I would add a lot of fresh lemon juice to my water. The body absorbs it more easily that way and it really quenches the body. Also perhaps shifting to more alkalizing foods would help your body.
For me being dizzy often showed up when I was going to fast. Is that you? It literally forced me to stop and slow down.. hard as it might be, but oh so necessary. Are you breathing? Maybe some yoga would help you find your breath and center?
Sending some healing energy your way :)

water water water, especially if it's hot, and especially if you are detoxing.
I hope you feel better.
Interesting that your glasses give you more of a headache.. could it be that your eyesight might be improving? :D
