View Full Version : confused

:confused: I've been eating raw now for a little over a year and am really confused as to why I seemingly am more prone to sickness, more allergy related...Usually, once a year I get sinus issues, but now it seems like way to often I am plagued with sinus issues. In fact, for the past 5 days I have experienced probably the worst sinus infection I have ever had. It would just seem that if you drink green drinks, eat raw, that your body wouldn't be prone to sickness. I have even done the Master cleanse and eliminated mucus (yuck)...but it just seems like my immunse system is not what it used to be..........???!!!!

Sometimes things get worse before they get better also there is Detox that is confused with illiness, when all your Body is doing is cleansing.

detox, or perhaps if you look at your diet, maybe something is missing?

It sounds like you are just detoxing. I would look at your past & how you ate & the length of time you ate that way. I'm learning that it may take a while to see the results but your body is doing wonders in the meantime getting rid of junk in your body. Keep us posted

Neti pot. Get yourself a neti pot. That sinus gunk will be gone. And use it daily. WITH baking soda to heal the sinus area. Using it daily will prevent further sinus infections...

GO NETTI POT....super for cleansing sinus.
Detox.What went in for all these years has to come out and alot of times,it wont look pretty or be fun.So worth it.I look at this "sickness' as restoration of vibrant health. I am in one right now. I feel blessed for this "sickness".

Netti pot..a small lil container for washing out the sinus.Health food store has them or use a shringe and gently wash them out.I add a little salt.Online there are directions if needed.

Definitely sounds like detox dilemmas. How much physical activity do you do...do you actually break a sweat?? If not maybe you should try a sauna...the skin is our biggest organ and has incredible detox removal ability.

If you feel that this is not detox, but rather immune system related, then there are lots of immune-boosting and adaptogenic herbs you can use to help your immune system. For starters, try reishi mushroom (boiled in a decoction, not raw), holy basil (leaves can be added raw to smoothies), cat's claw (also a decoction), goji berry (dried) or white pine needles (juiced or a tea).
But I have a feeling this is detox. You can still be detoxing a year raw, I know I am. Lots of lemon juice and cayenne pepper will help you flush out that mucus quicker. You can still drink the master cleanse drink while not on the master cleanse and it is very good for you.
