View Full Version : detox in alissa's book
08-28-2007, 08:29 AM
I think in alissa's book it said that if you have muscle and/or joint pain while on SAD that it will temporarily get worse before it gets better while in detox.
I'm not asking if this is true b/c I think it is. I'm hurting big time. Like a lot. :(
My question is, did it work that way for you? Or did you not experience worsening symptoms before hand? Did it last long if you did?
(this is another reason I why I started raw, chronic neck and shoulder pain.)

I had headaches really bad at first and jount pain like I was getting the flu or something. It only lasted a few days for me but every body is different.
My husband has had chronic neck pain (arthritis and bone spurs in the neck) and he is feeling so much better on raw. He has only complained about the pain when he ate cooke food. Something about the cooking and he is feeling almost instant pain. Weird. But he is finally able to sleep at night and focus at work without medication.
Hang in there. Detox is just part of the process. :)

Hey Stacy ~ I have found my symptoms getting worse as well and I believe it is because when I had symptoms on SAD, I just took something to mask the pain. I have severe depression and PTSD and I know that being raw and cleansing my body will help me to heal. I am a stay at home mom with two incredibly active little girls who need my attention 24 hours a day and it has been difficult but totally worth it. I feel my self esteem getting better and my energy slowly increasing. I am only on day 15 and I can't wait to see how I feel in only 15 more days!! I know if I eat SAD, I will only make my problems worse. I am also going to be doing some colon hydrotherapy as I have heard that it will help a lot with detox. Take care of yourself and know that you are doing what is best for YOU. :D
