View Full Version : Pains in the bones
05-12-2005, 07:06 AM
I started having pains in my bones (legs). Did anyone have such a problem? (80% raw, don't think it is because of these 20% as on SAD had no pais and was rather healthy).

How old are you? (<18, 18-40, 40+) I bet your too old for growing pains.
Your bones have different needs at different ages. Our bones are constantly eating and building them selves, so they are constantly changing. (Though somewhat slowly.) It's possible your pains are a result of such, I can not remember any thing about the nerves around/in your bones though. (As in the location of the nerves.) Some times pains are caused by the re-building of nerves, and some times they are caused by an actual stimulus
Maybe some one here has more experience/knowledge than I.

When I first went raw (100%), I had some of the most intense pain one could imagine. Started in my ankles (felt as though someone had run a knife through them) so I had to crawl on the floor for a bit before finally standing up and walking; it moved through each joint ~ hips, elbows, wrists, knees, etc. My hands would go to sleep when I worked (and other times as well ~ I'm a bodywork therapist). It started going away little-by-little over a few weeks time. The wrists were the worst as my hands would numb. They got better over a few months.
Being I don't go to doctors (since 1980), I just let nature takes it's course. It did. Must have just been some type of cleansing.
Dunno what's going on with you as I have no idea what you've added to or let go of in your food program.

My thigh bones have been aching, it felt like growing pains. It's gone today, but I had it for a few days. I have no idea what it was, I know hormones can cause some of that, I had leg aches when I was pregnant and then after the baby was born, but now she's 18 months old, so it couldn't still be that, I wouldn't think.
So, yeah, I've had leg pains. But I can't help you figure out why, sorry.

when I ate cooked, I used to have terrible ankle pains, so bad that I couldn't walk, if I sat for more than a few minutes, getting up to go to the bathroom in the morning was unbelievably challenging, I could barely make it to the bathroom, so my hubby moved our bedroom from the lake side of the house, up to next door to the bathroom just because of this one thing.
Anyway, when I went 100% raw, all of a sudden, my pains were gone, then I ate some cooked food recently, and the pains were back, I had actually forgotten about them, until that moment.
So, I would imagine it is some kind of detox thing, and that it will eventually go away.
Hope it's soon for you though.

Yesterday evening I started taking pills with Calcium and vitamine D3 and my pains disappeared.
