Hi all! I started eating raw just a couple of weeks ago. I have already lost 10 pounds, my blood sugar has dropped from 310 to 150 and still dropping! I feel great, have loads of energy and even my knees feel better. I have had torn cartilage for years that has bothered me going up and down stairs and lately I have had less pain. Best of all...I suffer from bipolar disorder and I am no longer on any prescription meds. I see a therapist who is aware I am raw fooding and I am taking megadoses of omega 3. She agrees that as long as I feel fine and my coping skills are serving me well, then I don't need the meds. I am free of ALL my prescriptions, which were high blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, two kinds of bipolar meds and one anti- anxiety pill. ALL GONE! Most amazingly, I feel fantastic. No mind fog, no anxiety attacks, no constipation from all the pills, no hung over feeling in the morning. I have a clarity that I haven't felt since high school!! I am about to have my 40th birthday, by the way!
Thank you Alissa, for giving us this great forum to share! The food works, the ideas are sound and the evidence is amazing!

Hi Dawn, I also have been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder (type2). I had most trouble with depression and on raw I've been able to wean off the medication and I feel great! I'm so glad to hear that this is working for you. It feels like a miracle to me! Congratulations!
