Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Hello everyone! I'm loving the vibe already of this little retreat... But feeling a bit awkward as a newbie and have a tonne of questions to put out there already!
Anyone else from the UK here? I live in beautiful Cornwall (currently sunny!) about 2 mins from the coast, on a small community farm.
I have been toying with raw for the last year and a half and am now on average about 60% raw, but upping it more and more each week. My health has been a mixed bag really, some of it obviously MUCH better, and some of it quite the reverse! I'm hoping that it is mainly just "detox" and all will be well sooooon....
Another wellness educator told me today that detox symptoms (or "die-off") are a signal that our body *isn't* coping with removing toxins effectively, and that we should ease off and approach the thing a whole lot more slowly, fortifying our body with wholefoods and ensuring we are getting all the relevant supportive vits/mins to enable detox, such as B12 etc.
What do folks think about this? At the moment I feel *awful*, and she reckons it may be due to me being a bit gung ho on kombucha (not kombucha tea, but kombucha made from fermenting rye grains in pure water). Green blisters appeared overnight where I suffer from eczema normally, and now I can't walk!
Anyone else experienced anything like this on detox?
On the plus side, I *feel* lighter, slimmer, and from day 2 of starting my day with green juices, my hyperhidrosis vanished!! I did my astanga class *without chalk* for the first time ever.
Well that's enough ramble from me just now, do pop in and say hello :)
