Hello, I am new to the raw foods. I have been doing it off and on for the past 3 weeks. I did it strictly for 1 week, cheated one meal, did it strictly for one more week, and cheated again.
My problem is that if I only eat raw foods, I keep getting lower back pain and pain in my right side. Also, my scalp is itching like crazy since doing the diet. So, I'm wondering if anyone has had these pains. I'm not sure if it is kidneys or the food digesting through the intestines that is causing the pain.

Hi.Anything I have experienced was simply the new foods doing their cleaning work. Its a process to undo all we have done in our prior eating. It takes patience and love to ride through those tough times. It does pass though.
Best of everything on your raw journey.

I am new also and have pain in my lower right back. I thought I must have pulled something but could not think of anything I had done to pull one side. Maybe it is a sign of detox.

i def had scalp itching when i started raw...and dry skin everywhere. the skin is a major eliminatory organ. every once in awhile i will still get some dry skin, but in time it will pass. trust that you are doing the right thing...your body will start recovering and you'll see even more improvements as you keep feeding yourself healthy, live food.

I just recently went raw. I have this weird itchy spot on my neck and chest. Along with feeling nasaus at night, and a few headaches. Normal detox. One night I couldnt sleep because I felt weird, so I did some yoga felt better and then fell asleep.
