View Full Version : Lousy day, headache and all...
02-24-2007, 06:41 AM
I've been eating as much raw stuff as possible for the last week, so I'm not sure if this is really a detox thing that's going on, since I've had bread, soy yoghurt, soy milk and some muesli in the past few days, but I'm feeling awful.
For a few days now I've been like a yoyo, my energy going up/down all the time. Like today, I woke up, felt so good, then I went outside for a walk and when I got back in it felt as if my body was made of lead. Right now I have a headache, I feel tired and every part of my body is just heeeeavy...
It's so strang, because when I eat or when I'm "in energy" I feel so light and joyful, creative and free. And then I just bounce back.:confused: :confused:
This has happened a few times this week. I always snap out of it, but this unbalance is disturbing.. I sleep, I take my b12, I eat plenty and drink water. Is this some kind of wierd detox or am I just in one of those weeks?

How long have you been raw? I'm thinking it's a detox.

I started eating more raw stuff like a month ago, but I've been at my parents house (I live at my school) this week, and thought it was a good idea to go more raw when I did my own cooking.
So, mostly raw for little over a week.

For some the detox happens to fast you may want consider eating a lot of raw, but adding in some cooked to the point of getting off the cooked. This way the body can slow down the healing crisis and you can then get back to the more raw as possible mentality. Hallelujah Acres advocates 85% raw, but ultimately for those like us, he suggests 100% as we do here at site.

"Healing crisis" is really the word to describe how I feel. Right now I'm back in feelings from so many years ago, and I have no idea what might have caused it. I keep getting into these terrible fights with my mother (ok, that might not be the detox :p) and getting anxieties like I haven't in a reeeally long time.
I kind of feel that, if this is how detox feels when I'm still having cooked stuff, I'm not sure if I'm emotionally prepared to go through The Detox on 100% raw..

Are these fights with mom over eating? I know screaming is not the answer and sometimes I see my husband react by streaming which shows me his repressed anger from way back. It's okay to disagree, but then how we react to situations is the key. This can also lead to stress which is not worth it. Try to stay cool and calm especially if you are living under your mom's roof. It may not be easy, but do your best to handle the situation as "adult" like as possible as we all do become adults at some point, but may not be acting it out exactly at certain moments. Not sure if this makes sense. Email me if you wish. Feel well.

thank you for your concern, makes me warm..
The fights with my mom is not over food, it's more like I live on my own and take care of myself now, and coming home to visit is kind of hard, you know. Shes used to seing me as her kid and I'm used to taking care of myself and being an adult.
But we've talked about it, and it'll be fine. I don't have a headache any more, and I think I'm headed in the right direction

Sometimes it may be hard for parents to let go, but still we have to let our kids fly to experience life. I don't approve of the way my son eats for years, eating the DEATH DRIVEN DIET, but he doesn't care. Now he has a baby and they have this young 3 month old on acid reflux med. as the mother has this condition. She's breast feeding the baby. I know there is nothing I can change about their choices, even vaccinating this baby, so I just let them figure it out. I do share, but they have deaf ears.
Glad the headache is gone.
Keep up the great work.
