View Full Version : Feeling 'giddy', euphoric, happy all the time.

another thread. :o haha. I've often seen people talk about this, and by far, it's the best motivator for me. :) I've spent years on antidepressants and other drugs that made me feel depressed, anxious, etc.. etc.. you get the idea. Thankfully it all led me to self improvement.
How many of you on raw can attest to this idea? ... and how has it affected your life?

For me it was mainly in the earlier phases that I got that absolute high euphoria, where the ocean of happy seems deep, a little too deep perhaps.
Nowadays I still gets bouts of happy, they are just a lot calmer and not as euphoric. I'm sure if I went back to SAD eating and then returned to raw that I'd get those giddy highs of the early stages again.
How has it changed my life? It subtly and fundamentally changed my outlook, it made made me a more grounded and positive person. It's like looking out on the world and seeing it differently. :)

Glad for you!! pass it on! It's helped me so much over the past 1 1/2yrs. I have ups/downs but I know this has made the ups last longer and helped me heal in many ways.

when I am drinking mostly fresh fruit juice and fresh juiced greens, I get this feeling. when i am purely healthy raw, (no heavy combining and gourmet) I feel euphoric always. But mostly I just always feel positive, light, happy, clear.
I can attribute this to RAW but also to other things i practice, like yoga and meditation and lots of walks OUTSIDE

I'm currently doing the Master Cleanse (lime/lemon, maple syrup and cayenne) and I'm going for 10mi runs every third day. Whereas I'm normally ready to finish my run toward the end, I now feel like I could keep going another 10mi and best of all, yes, I feel "like on drugs" euphoric for about half to tree quarters of my run. :)

I find that going raw helped with feeling down or low. Basically, the lighter and cleaner I make my diet, the better I feel. Period. And the less I eat in general the happier I am, of course including lots of green juices.
Certain Herbs and superfoods have really helped me out a lot as well. Cold processed Herbs like Mucuna Puriens, which contains some L-Dopa, has really helped me a lot. Currently my herbal brian food includes mucuna and blue green algae (PEA). Oh yeah and cacao! WOOOOHOOO cacao!
noni, mangosteen, and amla berries are also wonderful.
And colloidal gold is an extremely profound supplement. mood elevating to the maximum!

Yeah, this is me... I'm walking on rainbows. And it ONLY happens when I'm eating 100% raw. I just walk around so happy. And when I think about how different things were right before I went raw, it's almost kind of comical! I was sad sometimes and just didn't get it. I felt like I was passing the time, not really living life.
Raw food is SO AMAZING!!! I LOVE to share this with people, because I just KNOW that you find true FREEDOM in HEALTH. For me, raw allowed me to be healthy again.
I wish everyone could feel this! :excited::cheer:

Eating raw makes me feel happier too but also gives me tons of energy.
