Now, this is a ? for all the more seasoned rawbies out there....
I have arthritis in my shoulders, knees, back, wrists, fingers and in the past (vegetarian and SAD days) experienced lots of joint pain (though it got lots better when I b/c a veggie).
About a year ago, the oddest thing happened. I got a painful, swollen finger joint on my wedding ring finger (my hubby teased me about my body rebelling against marriage LOL). It lasted for several months and then BAM! went away.
Now, all of a sudden after a month and a half 100% raw, it is back! Plus, I am having much more joint pain than usual in the other areas also.
Just after a week or two being raw, the joint pain really flared up (but not in the ring finger) and then went away. I figured it was detox.
My question is... Is this also detox? Does detox happen in waves or cycles as the body cleans out on deeper levels? Or- do you experience one symptom and then that one is gone for good?
I would love to hear about anyone who can relate or has knowledge in this area. Thanks ladies (and gents too)!
