View Full Version : 15 Years of Intestinal Problems Gone!
01-11-2008, 10:23 PM
For anyone who suffers with intestinal problems who is sitting on the fence wondering if the raw lifestyle might make a difference, wonder no more! For years I suffered with severe intestinal problems. I've had every test, taken most IBS prescribed meds and have been to several specialists only to be told that there was no physical reason for my misery. It was pure misery. I hated to leave home, felt like I had a cannon ball in my gut at all times and barely had the energy to function normally from day to day.
After 6 months of eating raw I can say I'm in almost perfect health. I am full of energy, I'm not afraid to leave home (the bathroom), I can work at my job all day and still feel good when I get home, I can play with my grandkids and I'm sleeping better than I have in years. Oh, and I no longer carry around a 20 lb. cannon ball in my gut.
Please, please, please, if you think there is no hope that you will ever have normal functioning intestinal health again you must try this raw way of life. It might be the answer to your prayers. It was the answer to mine and I thank God everyday for leading me to it.
If you don't have Alissa's book, it is a MUST HAVE!

I am so happy that you found the RAW lifestyle and are feeling good now.:p I am trying to educate a dear friend on all of this . She too has suffered from IBS since she was a young adult. She has noticed how much I have changed over the last three months with my new Raw lifestyle........but had no idea that I was eating Raw! I just told her last week and now she is starting to take the initiative to learn.

Loved reading your story and your right Alissa's book is a MUST HAVE~~
Hey I came to raw because of stomach problems too... My mom says my dad also always had stomach problems.
Raw fixed them so quickly!
Now, I only have stomach problems when I make the decision to have non-raw food for some reason or another. It's become very clear that I have "genetic" stomach problems but that raw food is the one and only pure cure. :D
That's wonderful. It's so inspiring to hear your story. Raw is magic, there's no doubt about it.

It amazes me how many people suffer from intestinal problems.
If you can get your friend to replace as much cooked food as she can with raw it will make a big enough difference in her health that she will be motivated to do more and more. Eva is right when she says what a "quick" fix eating raw makes. I could tell a difference in a week's time and I wasn't even 100% at that time. I just felt so much better that it encouraged me to stick with it and replace more and more with raw.
The health benefits are FABULOUS!

Congratulations! 100% raw did not do the trick for me, my IBS got worse and worse, no matter what I tried. Triggers were fiber especially and sweet fruits. I could not eat sweet fruits, it would cause horrible bloating. Now I have started on a low fat experiment I can eat as many mangoes as I want. Totally amazing. So for others who do not experience relief of their intestinal troubles, there is hope! You just need to find the right mix which will work for you!
