I'll bet its some kind of neurotoxin. For example, organophosphates are the basis of insecticides and herbicides. They are also the basis of nerve gas, which kills nerve and brain cells.

I like hemp seeds as my fat source, which can substitute for almonds or avocados. Sunflower seeds are a cheap alternative to expensive nuts. Beans are unnecessary, and no substitute is necessary. Beans are hard to digest as they contains high amounts of starch and protein, which don't food combine well together. Even with cooking, beans can produce serious gas. If you are concerned abou

I live in northern California, which isn't that far from Klamath lake in Oregon. Around here, in all the rivers, the health officials post warning about not letting your dogs swim in the river when the blue green algae is ripe, as ingesting this stuff will make your dog sick and possibly kill your dog.

Was it the fasting or the ayahuasca that brought you relief from your symptoms? Perhaps a longer supervised fast, say like a month long fast, might help with the healing. But if it was the ayahuasca, then perhaps your illness is more of a spiritual problem.

Lee, Thanks for the update on your process. Your presence is a blessing, and your participation here has made a difference to me. I am glad that my input was helpful to you. Hearing of your process is a reminder to me to stay present with my own life, and for me to attend to the feeling of peace, love and bliss, rather than to allow my mind's tendency to languish in thinking and though, whi

I've had most of the fruit on that video. The fruit he called longans are really langsat. I love the langsat. When I was eating cooked food, the durian smelled very putrid to me. But after going raw, my perception of the smell changed quite a bit, and now it smell like a sweet tropical fruit, and of course the taste is heavenly. Yumm. Durian is my favorite tropical fruit, but my second favo

For me it varies depending on the season. Yesterday I had the following: 2pm: 10 oranges 6pm: 8 bananas, 8 strawberry smoothies. A vegetable crudité with sliced cucumbers, carrots, celery, and red bell peppers, with a dipping sauce made from 4 tangerines, 2 ribs celery, 1/2 bunch cilantro, 2 tbsp sundried tomatoes, and 3 tbsp hemp seeds. During the summer, I might have the following: 2

You might want to see what your fat percentage is with a nutritional calculator like fitday, nutritiondata, nutridiary, or Cron-o-Meter. A 30% fat intake is high, 20% is moderate, and 10% and less is low fat. If you are used to eating a high fat diet, it make take some time to get your fat intake to a moderate or low level.

I've made pâtés where the main ingredient is carrots with celery, ground sundried tomatoes, cilantro, some lime juice to hydrate the ground sundried tomatoes, and then a small amount of hemp seeds to make the pâté creamy. I use a food processor to blend everything up. You could omit the hemp seeds, and perhaps use more ground sundried tomatoes to manage the wetness of the pâté.

This can be a detox symptom when first going raw. There have been posts by people who lost some hair when transitioning, but over time, their hair grew back thicker and healthier than before the hair loss. I didn't notice a lot of hair loss myself during my transition, but my hair was getting thin 10 years before I went raw. Now my hair is very healthy. Stress can cause hair loss.

I usually get a salad, raw soup (I like cream of celery root), perhaps a nori wrap. I usually avoid the nut heavy entrees, though I will eat the raw desserts, which are nut heavy. My favorite raw dessert is a candy cap mushroom cheesecake. When I am in the city I notice I want denser foods to block out all the city energies. Over the last 8 years, I have had a few teas (perhaps 1 or 2 a year a

I've been 100% raw vegan for over 8 years. I don't eat a lot of variety from day to day. But I eat seasonally, so that means what I eat now is not going to be what I eat in the summer or the fall. I make zero effort to eat a variety. However, when I was eating cooked foods, I could eat the same meal 2 weeks in a row. I buy my foods in cases which means 38 to 40 pounds at a time of oranges or b

The foods you chose, meat, carb, and junk foods, are foods notorious for making us not feel. One thing that happens when someone starts eating raw foods is that they start to feel a lot.

Rather than focusing on what you need to eat to build muscle, perhaps its better to focus on what muscle building activities you are going to do to build that muscle. And if you do the physical activity, your body will direct you to the foods it needs to build those muscles you desire.

It may have been that you were undereating with your raw foods, and this built up some hunger, which could have caused the binge. Or, it could have been that you were using denial in your approach to raw foods, and eating one cooked meal made you feel how much you were denying yourself, and this resulted in a binge. Or, it could be that since you've never done this before, you are getting t

badawie, I have heard of other raw foodists who started out allergic to many raw foods. Find the raw foods you can tolerate. For the rest of your diet, eat a low fat whole foods cooked vegan diet, until your health recovers. As your body becomes less and less toxic, you will have less and less allergic reactions to things. In general, the reason the body gets allergic to normally innocuous

If you are eating tree ripened figs, the skins don't burn much (they do if you eat a lot), assuming you eat the very ripe and sweet figs that have a jelly like texture on the inside. But if you are lucky enough to find a fig tree like this, many times the figs will have been pecked at by birds. I don't mind this, I'll eat the bird pecked figs as they are the most ripe.
