View Full Version : Looking for a Healthy Active Community!
05-24-2010, 11:07 PM
I'm a 21 year young woman. I've been interested in natural health since I was about 19. I've finally decided to get more and more serious about it. I want to eventually put up a website and do some experiments (funded by my school).
In the mean time, I was looking for a community that would be active and helpful. Saavy to the products and ideology I've adopted. I'm not a raw food-ist, but it seems that the raw food community shares a lot of knowledge and know-how that I'm looking for!
I'm currently dealing with some issues with my body. It's gotte to the pount that I am
a) considering going raw for a little while and possibly
b) just becoming a damned holistic doctor, already
Not sure yet. But maybe you can help. :)
www.blaquebeautyblog.blogspot.com is my blog. Where it kind of started. It was first just beauty issues and seeped into health.

I wanted to send you a pm, but you have that option blocked. So, I went to your blog to send you a message and I don't have any of the available profiles so I couldn't contact you that way either. If you want to contact me, please do. I have some info you may be interested in.

dotty, a lot of people on this site, myself included, have/had serious health issues. Most of the people here believe that raw food is the best way to live. Some are doing it very regularly - some are mainly raw - some are getting started - some went raw for years and for a number of reasons - to many to mention them all - have strayed away and some are coming back - more than once.
What holds us together is our knowledge that this works. We have different opinions about things like cleanses or oil or whole foods - but we all know that Raw is better than cooked.
Use the Banana above and search for your issues - you may fine someone else has posted about it and has just the answer for you that you need.
Feel free to ask specifics - believe you me, we talk about everything under the sun from our sex lives to poop (I just did a banana search for poop and got 333 entries!).
Cancer, heart disease, angina, gout, Celiac disease, high blood pressure, morbid obesity, diabetes - well you get the picture (those are just the things I have talked about!)
Most of the advice you will get on this site is from people with the same conditions - I love all the people who have shared their stories with me and helped me to take a step father on my way - sometimes picking me up when I fell.
So be inspired - most of us just tried raw food and loved what it did for us. I often tell people that if they really eat Raw for 118 days - their life will forever be changed! I mean it. I have never seen a person raw for 118 days and then go back to the SAD or Standard American Diet.
But we are not the food police - whatever you put into your mouth, good or bad, has an effect on your body. Some people choose to be high raw - some are raw all the time at home but cooked when they are out with friends. Some want to be 100% raw but haven't figured out how to do it yet for a number of reasons...
We do not exist in a vacuum - the people here are living real lives in a real world and life is not always pretty... in fact it is often as messy as blending a smoothly on high in a vita-mix you forgot to put the top in - really messy!
So be real and the real people here will respond in kind... No one here has all the answers - but we do have some...

Thanks for the welcome guys (I will PM you, walnutty. If it fails, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org).
I'm glad this forum is going to be what I'm hoping for.
I suffer from a chronic BV (google it & its not an STD!), allergies, ADD (which I'm actually not concerned about, but if cures for the others lead to a cure for that one, why not?), and too much testosterone. Along with some other bodily enhancements I'm working on. Hope I can help and get help, too.
