Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

This is my second time "going raw." So I feel more confident about what I'm doing and what to expect along the way. So it was no surprise when I started to experience what I call an emotional detox. Tears were right under the surface for days, little things would set me off, and grief that was buried under pounds of fat came churning to the top. I journaled. I cried. I got an emergency meeting with my therapist. I talked to my best friend. And now...I feel like I am on the upside again. 


I'm just wondering if anyone else experienced that? It scared me the first time. This time I was ready.   :  )

It is a good thing, leaving me with kind of a fresh/newness, ready for going deeper into my own healing at every level. I also feel empowered to stay the journey, as well. Life is good, going green makes it even better!

Thanks, in some weird way it's good to know I'm not alone in this. When I went raw before and the emotions started to flow it freaked me out. There is no other diet I have been on that has had that same effect. Which makes me think that raw really is a total detox, from the inside out at every level. Feeling so much better, and yes, I'm learning how to roll with it!

Not lately, but yup, I have had days like that. Just roll with it because when you come out on the other side, it's a whole new world.
