View Full Version : Ugh...detox.HELP!
02-19-2007, 06:48 PM
I just wanted to share my pain as bad as that sounds because I'm having a hard time. I'm on my 5th day eating 98% raw and have no desire or temptation to turn back to SAD, but my goodness! My head is hurting, I can't concentrate to save my life, I have no energy and any anger I may be feeling keeps coming out of nowhere along with some insecurity that I knew was always there. I know this is detox from all I've read here, emotional detox too. How long does this normally last if you're just eating raw and not fasting? And is there anything food or drink wise that I can use to speed this process up? I don't have any money so I can't go get wheatgrass or anything. I have some fiber powder in the kitchen to mix in drinks, I've been trying to drink a lot of water...help!

Oh yes, also...my diet is consisting of probably the same amount of fruits and veggies...a little bit of V8 but not much. I just read that maybe eating more fruits will help. Has anyone experienced eating more fruit to be helpful?

Hi, I have been reading a lot and some articles say to add avacado and/or banana slices to your diet to slow down detox. Also the V8 juice isn't really raw and contains a lot of salt and other things. So V8 is SAD. Try journaling your feelings, take a long bath or go for a walk. Don't be afraid to ask yourself (why?) you are getting so angry. I hope one of these ideas can help!

I seem to be going through the same thing. I've been about 90% raw for 5 days now, and my head is hurting really badly, and I keep going to the bathroom. I'm so sleepy and foggy-headed too. I didn't think about the fact I could be detoxing until AFTER I took a celebrex, so I kind of messed up, lol. I'm sure everyone's experience is unique, and how long this lasts is going to vary. Hopefully you're feeling better soon! My hubby and son aren't going raw with me yet, so they aren't terribly supportive in this process. I'm going to stick with it nontheless - they'll see how much better I am after this. :p
