After being these 2 weeks on this raw diet (approximately), I realize a pattern:
- after I eat many veggies, and still take fruits, juices with avocado, banana...
- I wait about
30 minutes, and my skin gets shrunk, as though it were pumping water off my body.
I feel clearly cleaning of sinuses, and all the parts that I used to have problems (right shoulder, uterus, some fingers and toes...) start to feel like 'something is happening there': light pains, or relief, joints crack a bit...
I call that a mini-herx.
After that shrinking moments, the skin will get water back again.
I have the impression the body goes on detox mode rather fast (with so many antioxidants and WATER, as the juices have water, fruits, tomatoes, lettuce, all are full of water).
And 'detoxing' means: toxins and infections must disappear!
What is nice, is that all is done alone by my body, no need to take anything extra for it to do what I want.
It does on its own!!!
What impresses me is that when I tried to pull treatments on difficult resistant areas (such as deep in my shoulder joint), nothing seemed to reach it.
Now that i don't try to push any treatment there, the shoulder cleans from inside out.
I feel clearly there is a very deep transformation going on, very deep in tissues, sinuses, joints, specially (all parts that have been problematic for me, for so many years after lyme was gone).
In my case, I suspect candida, but it could be still something else.
It is probably what people call 'degenerative disease' as it came very slow, it was a gradual decline, gradual increase of stiffness or problems here and there. I was not too bad, let's say, but at about
50 I felt some problems came to stay.
Well, for the first time, I'm having REAL hopes.
I feel HIGH after a pure raw organic veggie meal, as though I took something to send me to the moon.
My head feels very calm, it's almost like a spiritual experience for me.
Sometimes it feels even better than fasting, which is a surprise.
I think the properties of veggies and fruits become much more clear, when I eat so fresh / raw.
Tastes feel much more sharp now, it's like I discover each herb (like parsley, amazing flavor!!).
I'm learning to enjoy RAW mushrooms, raw pumpkin (I never thought I could eat raw pumpkin), raw zucchinis...
I can mix them with olives, add very high quality olive oil, bits of balsamic vinegar, and it tastes very good.
the only thing I'm taking that is not raw is coffee.
I take organic coffee, and it feels good.
Otherwise, the food feels way to cold. I need teas and coffee, I feel.
Today, it is the first day I took no binders (since I started on this diet, I keep herxing or detoxing, and I needed constant intake of binders, or inflammation returned).
It means that herxes are weakened, but so are symptoms.
Today, I needed extra magnesium, due to cramps. Detoxing, detoxing on its own.
Urine is pretty strong color, and I'm drinking much more than usual (when I'm on 'normal' diet, I mean).
I do start to feel confident, that this was the right thing for me now.
I can't swear I'll stay on it, but definitively, that is what I needed to do.
Fasting is excellent, but I can't go on fasting forever, if I want to get rid of candida for good, and other problems.
this water pump effect after a meal is amazing.
It's really like my body pumps out whatever there is in the lymph, and after fill it again.
My skin looks also more healthy. My liver is very much relieved today (as I'm not herxing)...
