View Full Version : My wife gets dizzy
06-23-2008, 12:21 AM
Hi fellow raws.
Lately my wife gets dizzy. When she moves faster than normal or so, she gets dizzy.
We always get a green smoothie for breakfast with some greens, fruits and wheatgrass. (around one quart daily) During the day we also get a good amount of nuts. We also get an avocado almost daily (one for each one) Almost always we get salads and nuts pates.
She does drink around 1 quart or 1 and 1/2 quart of reverse osmosis purified water a day (I try to get her to drink more though) We get one or two pills of 500 mcg of B12 a week.
Do you guys know why can this happen? We think we are not missing anything...
She does not feel unsatisfied nor tired (sometimes just a little bit) it's just the feel of dizziness.

perhaps her blood pressure is low. i know mine is and sometimes i get dizzy if i move too quick. have her slow down when she's getting up... that will probably fix the problem. :)

I was detoxing, if your body is over toxic you will get dizzy.
A good enema helped me and drinking plenty of water.
Hope that helps, it did for me.

Low blood pressure used to give me that problem. I added SALT to my salads and problem went away! :)

I too have lower than average BP. I get dizzy occasionally, esp if I drink something that will lower it even more, such as mate'.

Many cause to this.
Some that i know
Low blood pressure
Low in iron
Or any other medical condition
If she has low blood pressure, the blood doesn't go as easy to the brain, you will recognise some symptome by being pale. Same for iron
Having green smoothies is a very good thing to do, it is rich in iron and great nutriments.
Hope you find the reason soon

Before raw, she always had high blood pressure... but not low pressure.
We get a daily smoothie... we add a big bunch of greens and fruits (also the wheatgrass that has tons of greens, algae and probiotics to make it super.
She can't be pregnant as she just got the period (well, she just ended it up) It was a regular period and she never suffers aftermath alignments due it.
Detoing... well... three months 100% raw foodism with a fasting in between... it can be hard... however, maybe it can be, who knows.

oh ya then she's probably detoxing... be sure to add a little citrus to those smoothies so she gets more of the iron out of them!

Wow... never though she could be detoxing after 3 months...
We experience a strong detox when starting raw (from a 1 year vegan)
Oh well... time will say, she told me she stills get dizzy when she moves fast.
I will add an orange or lemon juice to the smoothies then.

I'm detoxing from heavy metals and find that I'm VERY dizzy. Still have amalgams too - and some are leaking - so I'm working on getting those out soon.
Green smoothies (the greener - the better!) DO help me right after I drink them, and then about an hour or so afterwards, I'm back to being dizzy again. At least I can see, even for a short time, that something in the greens is helping.
Not saying this is your wife's issue at all. I just know that there are LOTS of possible reasons for the dizziness.
Another thing I find for myself (and I don't read much on this forum about this) is DEEP breathing helps! When I feel dizzy... and I KNOW I'm detoxing, so that is MY reason, I stop what I'm doing, and take a several long, slow, deep breaths. I get a bit MORE lightheaded right away, but then I feel better overall. It may sound a bit strange, but it works for me.
Hope you discover the reason and are able to help her very soon!

Adrenal fatigue can cause dizziness, as can inner ear problems. Do a google search on "adrenal fatigue" and see if it matches. You might try to switch from wheat grass juice to barley grass juice to see if that helps -- some are sensitive to wheat even as a juice (I am).
