Help! can i stay raw with menopause?
Hi everyone, this is my first post and thank you for this wonderful over 50 site. I have been raw two months and my eyesight, digestion, muscle aches, chronic congestion has all improved, yeah :)
My detox cycles have been intense, but not unbearable (I can still run my business, but i need to work 10-11 hour days due to current economy :(
About two days a month prior to raw i would have menopause symptoms. This has not changed, and since raw, they feel to have gotten worse. Today it's so bad i haven't been able to start work yet.
Is this normal that symptoms may get worse before getting better? I love being raw, do i just need to be patient?
thank you all, I feel like i have found long lost friends!

You certainly can! In fact, this is the BEST possible thing you could do, as you will be avoiding the foods and substances that give menopausal and beyond women trouble, like refined starchy carbs, sugar, alcohol, and the like. As far as your symptoms, lots of this depends on how bad your diet was previously and for how long, plus your own biochemistry. Give it a serious go! Some of the symptoms also might be your body doing its own housecleaning, as you haven't been raw that long at all. At our ages, it takes longer to detox because we have a build-up of previous stuff to deal with. But take heart, it WILL happen - just keep on RAWKING!
