I am Aelith, 33, from the Northeastern USA. I have been lurking here for a while, trying to decide if raw is right for me. I have been suffering for several years with some autoimmune disorders, namely Rheumatoid Arthritis and IBS. I am sick of the medications I have to take, which have terrible side effects, ranging from acne and mood swings (prednisone) to hair loss and fatigue (methotrexate) to susceptibility to lymphoma (TNF Blockers like Enbrel and Remicade). I am currently taking only prednisone, but want to get off this as well, and, most of all, want to be healthy and whole again.
Anyway, despite this long ramble, I am hear to "listen" and learn...

Hello there & welcome. My IBS got alot better when I became 100% vegan but when I have high raw days it doesnt bother me at all, even when eating rich raw desserts. But I must stay away from the nightshade plants like tomato, aubergine, potato,chillies & peppers cos I am intolerant to them & they give me IBS, skin rashes & aching inflamed joints.
I also have auto immune problems, Psoriosis, fatigue, Seasonal Affective Disorder...just being high raw Ive been able to come off Prozac :)
Wishing you much healing on your raw journey
