View Full Version : Reason #156 for staying raw
12-15-2004, 06:00 AM
An older relative of mine called my parents last night. He had a hemorrhoidectomy a couple days ago and is in TERRIBLE pain. This is a guy that has begged for hemorrhoids...no exercise at all, red meat, alcohol. He's also had a couple heart attacks. He's in so much pain he said he'd rather have had a colostomy.
Every time I hear a story like this, especially within my family, I just feel so glad to be on this path...as long as I stay here, I'll never have to deal with that.

How true Sue it still amazes me most medical doctors will not even consider the relationship between food and health problems. I had a friend where I use to work that had surgery done on his hemorrhoids and after he had it done he said this was worse then not having the surgery done. His diet was the typical Sad in this country. Hopefully through all these sites on raw and living food this message becomes clear to folks they don't have to suffer but can live in perfect health :)

I was advised that I needed surgery yesterday - actually it is unavoidable at least that is what I am told. At any rate, if my blood test come back negative, my mission is clear to sustain a raw diet until I return to the Dr on 1/10. If the test is positive, I will have the surgery as I need it to save my life, and again sustain a raw diet to heal. The conclusion here is to be raw- either way and avoid any more fence straddling. :D

I also am battling health issues, obesity probably being the number one cause and overacidity. I have asthma, and have been suffering from shooting pains in the left side of my head, as well as occasional numb, tingling feelings on the right side accompanied by a twitching on my left upper eye lid. I switched jobs because of it; everytime I went into work, the pains would occur. My husband and myself worked at the same office, so everytime he would mention the people there or anything having to do with the office, the pains and twitching would start. Now that I am somewhere else, the symptoms have drastically decreased, but I know that I need to change my diet to heal it. I am afraid of ending up with an anyurism or something horrible if I don't do something now. By the way, Smasty, I would like to hear about your weight loss journey, as I have over 100 pounds to lose. Any enlightenment would help. Thanks to everyone for being here.

Sweet lips, what surgery, can I ask? Are you ok?
Heather, I have 100 lbs. to lose too. Raw definitely is the way to do it. I'm seeing results already. You can do it!!!
