View Full Version : Abdominal ache after 5 days on raw
05-26-2007, 10:55 PM
Last week, I did 100% raw for 5 days followed by 5 days juice fast. Since 5th day on raw and thereafter, I felt some mild achiness on my left abdominal area (just below the rib). I am wondering if it is my spleen detoxing? My right side also ached (liver/gallbladder detoxing?) once in a while. The feelings ended once I ate some cooked food. Any thoughts?

I also have pain on my right side after messing up and eating Sad food for a week. I think it has something to do with detoxing but for me it was adding toxins my body instead. I wake up with the pain in the middle lower tummy area which is not good but I also know that once i get the toxins out it will go away.........or hopeing it will go away.
Stick with it. Dont eat the foods that make it go away. I think it is just detoxing. Of course no one knows for sure but if eating cooked foods than it sounds like detoxing and u r just feeding it the toxins it needs............whatever it is that is doing the pain.
Good luck. I know that I am going to fight the pain and drink green smoothies so i can be back to where i was before eating the high toxic foods.

Yes. Detox. If you feel acute pain in your lower back, sides, or lower abdominal area.....then I would discontinue abrupt transition to raw foods / fasting....and resume a slower transitional diet. Make sure you are drinking plenty of pure water when you are not fasting. Just some suggestions.

Thanx y'all for the replies.
I'll probably just try to slowly transition so I don't scare myself :)
