Lizard, I think a clean raw food diet could help. What causes inflammation are toxins in the diet. Is this 3 year old eating cooked foods, processed foods, or animal products? One simple dietary change would be to remove animal products - meats, dairy, and eggs. To eat a diet like the "Eat to Live" diet by Joel Fuhrman. To go further in the cleansing nature of the diet would be

Clements has always recommended 20% (as a percentage of volume) come from cooked foods. He believes that raw foods are the best, but the diet he recommends doesn't really work, by his own admission, eating at 100% raw. When it comes a deficiency in a diet, this is all relative to the person claiming the deficiency. Relative, not absolute. An omnivore say a vegetarian diet is deficient because

The desire for complex carbohydrates may just be a lack of carbohydrates in your diet. Try eats lots of sweet fruit and see if you desire for starches diminish. It was very difficult for me to leave bread behind, especially because there are some addicting aspects of wheat, the opioids.

You might want to look at the recipe forum here for some raw food ideas. Start with eating fruits and salads, since you probably already know how to do this. The prepared raw foods at the market are expensive, and you are better served eating simple fruits and salads. But if they help you go raw, then go for it. As you increase to raw foods in your diet, you might also want to look at i

Ascorbic, I had severe allergies before coming to the raw diet and lifestyle. I was extremely allergic to cats, as well has have intense hay fever. But after a year or two on the all raw lifestyle, these allergies went away for me. There have been people on the raw diet who were allergic to raw fruits when they first started, but as they healed themselves, these food allergies disappeared.

I don't supplement with B12. If I were to get sick with B12 related issues, I would have not problem taking the supplements. But before I took the B12 I would see if there was something in my lifestyle that was causing the symptoms other than not consuming B12 supplements. B12 is certainly cheap enough that it isn't going to break anyone's pocketbook if they practice preventative supplementati

While I agree that some people are so sick that sunlight cannot give people enough vitamin D in certain countries at all times, I don't think this is necessarily the case for healthy people on a raw diet who have been raw for some times, and they have healed their illnesses and are not consuming any medications what so ever. If you go to the internet and see what consumes vitamin D in the body

Its interesting to see who is defending this original post. The original post is one of those leading question with a negative judgment and criticism implied of the target of the question. It like the question "Are you still beating your wife?". In both these questions, it is assumed that a negative quality exists about the target of the question, and it puts the person who answers

rawpreston, The original post in the thread also bothered me with its judgment and criticism. Other members here besides myself saw this, and offered advice to the original poster to not care what other people look like, or another person advised to share their own positive experiences. And many others responded with humor, which always helps. The original post is offensive and I almost del

You may be right, that you have parasites. Given the other symptoms you described, it sounds like your body is just very sick. Whenever I've been sick, regardless of what it was, what has always helped me it to get more rest and sleep, and the eat lightly, or perhaps even to fast. What does your current diet look like? With a diet of fresh fruit and vegetables only, its hard for parasites to t

I remember when I first started eating raw, and I couldn't get that full feeling that I got with cooked foods. No matter how much I ate, that feeling of a brick in my stomach never showed up. And this took some getting used to. Its a different feeling, having a full belly, but not that old full feeling. But over time, as I ate more raw foods and less cooked foods, I got used to the new feeling

There could be other toxins in your diet that is causing the water retention. What are you putting in your mouth that is not fresh whole fruits and vegetables? Are you eating non-organic? Are you eating some salt-like products, though while they don't add salt, are still salty? Bragg Liquid Aminos are like this. Or products that contain salt: Nama shoyu, miso, etc. Are you using nu

p3d3r, When I first started raw, I was eating a super high fat diet, in excess of 60-70% fat. When I realized how much fat I was eating, I tried to cut my fat down to 10% fat. But at some point I realized I had desire to eat more fat, and I was controlling that desire. So I backed off the 10% goal, and relaxed it to 20% fat. This felt good for me and it was easy for me to do. Over the next

powerlifer, You don't have to agree that what someone is doing will work for you. But let it be OK for it to work for them, or if perhaps if it might not work, allow them to have their own experience if they so choose. For me, it is though making mistakes for myself that I find I have the greatest learning. Because you don't respond to what someone else if doing with their diet does not mea

However, when people share their judgment and criticism of others on this forum, it lowers the energy or vibration of the forum, that is, it makes the forum a less friendly and safe place to visit, because people see that members here are judgmental and critical of other people.

I don't subscribe the the enzyme theory either. Yet that hasn't kept me from realizing the benefits of eating a 100% raw diet for over 8 years. Even if you remove the enzyme theory, for which there is little or no scientific proof, there is plenty of science that proves that cooking reduces vitamins, minerals, water, fiber in foods and that cooking produces toxins, some of which are carcinogen

Yes, the mucus is detectable as powlifer stated. It can come out of any of the mucous membranes found in the respiratory, gastrointestinal, urogenital, and other mucous membranes found in the body.

One thing you might play with is consciousness. Keep a diary around your consumption of chocolate. Before you eat the chocolate, go inside, see what your are feeling, and write that down. After you finish the chocolate, do the same. Perhaps you will find a pattern of uncomfortable feeling that the chocolate seems to fix or abate. If you get in touch with this feeling, you might then be able to

In The Mucusless Diet, there a lots of recipes for cooked foods. And there are charts of food that are non-mucus forming that need to be cooked to be eaten.

80-10-10 is a high greens diet. I think he recommends something like 2 pounds of greens a day. More if you are more active. For myself, I ate that volume of greens when I first started eating high fruit, but nowadays I don't have a desire to eat that many greens. I think after a year or so I started to feel saturated with greens, and now I eat them as I feel in the mood for them. But for begin
