When going raw

When going raw, there is a period where the body goes: 'wow, ok let's cleanse', and a lot of cleansing happens. If one has not been raw before, then this can cause a herxheimer reaction where one feels not so energetic, because the body is prioritising cleansing and the lymph fluid is moving well and some unbeneficial microbes makes a fuss when they leave some time.

So, it is beneficial to take some herbs that make the bowels move, like an herbal supplement for bowel movements. Also, drinking more spring water and taking kidney cleansing herbs and liver cleansing herbs. This is because we want to have super flow in our system.

A two month supply of milk thistle seed extract can reduce herxheimer and is great for the liver for example.

Also, making the nutrition gradually more raw is a good way to go. Some people do this subconsciously actually, to make the transition smoother by eating some steamed/cooked foods and gradually going more raw.

This is important to know if one tries all raw nutrition. Eventually the body cleanses out, and if done right, the transition is much smoother. After some time being fully raw, super levels of energy, synchronicity +++ might be felt.

Going raw one must still include enough amino acids, omega 3 etc, seeds must be soaked and/or sprouted, as with nuts and beans.
