I might not be replying in the right thread, but I was looking for some info about menstrual reactions to going raw.
I considered myself pretty healthy and used to have a very regular cycle with pains etc, but mostly tolerable. I have been raw for 3 weeks now and all of a sudden I am 1,5 week early and the bleeding is pretty heavy (although less discomfort than usual).
Is this a normal reaction in the beginning of raw?
I dont think shorter or irregular cycles are a sign of health....
back to the original post. I have some friends who said that the daily practice of Hot Yoga combined with a raw diet made their bleedings completely disappear. They said that they still knew and felt exactly where they were in their cycle. And they figured that they felt healthy all over and didnt have a reason to be worried. They also said that when they either stopped their yoga practice for a while or stopped 100% raw, their bleedings returned.
At the time it reminded me of some things I heard and read about professional athletes; to me it sounded like it was a reaction of the body being in some kind of hyper/over functioning mode.
