Now I couldn't claim, and don't, to be instincto; but I am giving 100Raw a
My thinking on this reactivity to cooked foods is
(1) in processing cooked foods, the body is using the immune system to a
greater or lesser extent.
(1.1) this explains part of why people get sick, that the immune resources
are being used for digesting instead of fighting the disease.
(2) there are products of digestion of cooked foods that are not really
ready for the bodies use, ie there is a degree of cooked food that is not
digested that is absorbed ( basically thru 'holes' in the gut, I suppose).
(2.1) these difficult-to-use products are stored temporalily in various
places: in this model I am suggesting what might be happens perhaps because
of a lack of vitality.
Eating 100Raw or mostly, or adding enough food enzymes and essentials to the
meals will help the body to deal more with immunity. Consequently,
(1) the unused, stored cooked products are excreted.
(1.1) this makes it look as if someone is getting worse (one or more of
:feeling bad, lacking in energy, strange excretions from all over the place,
"Things get worse before they get better."
(1.2) If you now go a take medicine(s) to stop the symptoms, this causes
them to stay in the body, so you might feel better but you don't get weller. ,)
(2) Once its all out, and the body is still getting properly
nutritionalized, the situation stabilises and one feels better, has more
energy and excretes more or less normally. (In my experience, and I'm still
stabilizing, this new state might be a completly new experience, so what
'normal' is is different from what was experienced as normal before).
(3) Then, out of idle curiosity or for whatever reason, one tries some
(3.1) For the person with strong vitality, the immune system springs into
action, and having clear pathways for excretion and plenty of vigour to
excrete, they experience strong reactions that they maybe never had before
they began eating raw.
(3.2) For others, perhaps the system is not as cleaned up yet, and they
might actually experience a lessening of detox reactions, and feel better.
There could also be psycological factors that arise thru detoxing which need
to be dealt with.
One way is to focus on an area of interest, espescially one that you will be
able to use in the future.
And work hard at it.
I believe a degree of exercise is useful, not more than you can manage easily.
And also s L e e P i n G helps, I'm pleased to say.
Well that's how I see it, tell me if I'm wrong.
