Sounds like detox to me. Sometimes the best thing you can do is ride it out. HTH!:D
10-01-2007, 11:50 AM
I found that drinking as much water as you can really helps too. I mean 8 to 10 bottles!
You will pee a lot lol
Also I took salt and mineral baths cos my back was aching .
hope this helps:)
10-01-2007, 11:52 AM

First off you want to make sure you are following the raw food triangle 33% raw vegitables 33% raw fruit and 33% Raw nuts and fats. Secondly you want feel a significate difference raw until you detox this can take 3 to 14 days. once you detox you will feel better.

thank you so very much that was informative and kind too :)
Viva, while you are off work, can you sleep as much as possible? Some days I just needed to go to bed to ride it out. I always heard our bodies heal while sleeping--don't know if that's true.
10-02-2007, 12:18 PM
no cos i am in a depression so the anxiety keeps me awake... i would love to xx
Viva--don't mean to get gross, but are you "expelling" some of that food? Maybe an enema might help. I know that some days I have felt quite ill and needed to clean out! It helped me. I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time. Hang on. We are all here with you and to help in any way we can.
10-02-2007, 12:46 PM
thank you, you are the 3rd person on here to be warm to me and it means a lot. a lot.
i am sitting here sobbing its rough. headache but i am ok. oh yeah abby, i am 'going' 3 times yesterday. twice today. its all happening. i am just going thru a hard time on this xx
Viva, you are awesome for hanging in there KNOWING how tough it's going to be! After 3 months, I'm starting to deal with more emotional detox. Just keep wanting to tear up today. I guess that's why I just want to sit and hold your hand. I'm sure it'll pass. Maybe we need this emotional stuff to get out of us. I know I've been holding on to mine like it's a treasure!! I remember my headache lasted about a week! I was on a roller coaster each day noticing differences in everything about myself and the way I was feeling. Raw does really make you in tune with yourself! Viva, I'm here.

I really feel listless and tired and weak an sleepy and crappy...what can i do to avoid this?The question should be: "what can I do to co-operate with nature and help my body become healthy". -- Listen to your body. What is it telling you ?
10-02-2007, 01:41 PM
subu (had a friend at skool called subu) and ez thank you, i feel so dreadful i am going to try and sleep. you are both lovely. i have felt terribly alienated but now peeps are coming out to suppport whihc is nice xx thnak you xx
10-02-2007, 01:58 PM
viva diva! please don't feel alienated, I was reading through another of your posts and you got soo upset. I also (i think others too) originally mistook your confusion about the diet and detox for negativity.... We're all here for you! Just join in as much as you can and it will be clear and make sense!!! good luck on your raw journey ~ trust us, it does get better after detox. I've been hit pretty hard too, just stick with it and you'll feel better in no time! :p
10-02-2007, 03:46 PM
Hi viva diva!
I hope you are feeling better. I just wanted to thank you for the positive mentions that I have gotten from you. That has meant a lot to me.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing more from you.
10-03-2007, 01:44 PM
Andra Angelina and EZ thank you sooo much for your support. i am over it. the detox was violent and is over and i am starting to feel good. i have also dropped 6 pounds already!!! xx

That is great news!!! wahoooooo 6lbs already! Way to go girl....keep up the great work :D
10-03-2007, 01:50 PM
Wow, Viva Diva thats a super quick detox & awesome weight loss. Hope things just get better & better.
10-03-2007, 01:53 PM
Sorry it's starting off so rough, but I agree with Shine...try to ride it out. It will be over soon. Many of us felt the same way until day 4 or 5. (everyone is different). But I would suggest a 1/2 to 1 tsp of coconut oil taken first thing in the morning before you eat. To me it sounds like you need more good oils...especially if you are depressed. Also, you may want to try and add a vitamin b complex until you get through it. (((Big Hug!))) PS. It's worth it on the other side...see you there!
Viva Diva--Great to have you back--and well! Wow! What a great reward! Losing 6 lbs almost makes it worthwhile~~~
