Detox and Muscle Cramps...
Posted by: Anonymous User ()
Date: December 02, 2010 10:45AM

I am on day 4 RAW and I am experiencing muscle cramps all over my body especially around my upper back and shoulders. I also feel an all over achiness which I expected.

Are the cramps normal or is there something else I should be doing? According to my RDA numbers I am good on everything except Vit D and B12 which is pretty normal. I do not feel like I have been on this long enough for any deficiencies to be the problem.

So I am pretty sure I am majorly detoxing... 30 something years of abusing my body combined with going RAW cold turkey....

I know I am answering my own questions here, I guess I would just like confirmation from those who have been through it.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

detox is possible, you could also be catching some sort of flu, or a combination there of, just ride it out, BUT if you start feeling REALLY awful, like if you feel you need medical attention, do not ignore that feeling, get yourself to a doctor! especially if you start getting a high fever...

I get leg cramps sometimes when I go from eating poorly to eating very clean with lots of raw greens. My mom just adopted a healthier diet and reported cramps as a short term effect, too. I don't have an explanation, but it happens to me sometimes. I'm only 20. My mom is 46. I'm vegan, she isn't.

hmmm, I just thought of something, up your natural electrolytes and see what happens, grapes are an amazing source of electrolytes...
