View Full Version : Detox Question
11-17-2009, 01:45 PM
I have been toying with the raw food diet for the past week or so but decided yesterday to go 100% raw. I felt great yesterday but today I am so tired that my eyes ache to be open and I feel almost fluish. I am also so irritable that everything my children do is annoying me which is not good when you are homeschooling and have an autistic child. Is this typical for detox?

It depends. EveryBODY is different. Everyone will (might/may) detox in different ways. Are you drinking enough water? That will speed up the detox process and help you feel lighter.

I drank a ton of water yesterday but have not been that diligent about it today because I have been so grumpy.

I think that in the begining (first 2 days) it is withdrawl from the normal sugar, flours, caffiene, breads, rice etc....
Food has such a powerful effect on our bodies. It is a drug (sad food), so think if you did drugs you would be edgy until you got the next fix (or withdrew)...that is how I see food, except raw real food.I find that if I start each day with a green smoothie I am way more calm. That is me though.
I also home school, so cannot be edgy too long, but after a few days (raw) my husband is amazed that I am so calm with the kids....peaceful.
OH, and sleep...sleep way more that should help you out until it passes.
water is good though, so that is good you are doing that.
Raw is awsome and worth the hard days!

I am so excited about all of the homeschooling Moms on RFT! I was homeschooled K-12 and think it's just great that you guys are giving your kids this powerful head-start in a struggling world. :)
Regarding detox, I second this:
EveryBODY is different. Everyone will (might/may) detox in different ways.
