30 Bananas a Day!

I wasn't worried about this at all at first, because I assumed that the spot was just a bruise from hitting my hip on a corner of some sort. But I've had this little bruise spot for a few weeks, if not over a month, now. It's right before where my hipbone ends in the front of my abdomen. It's not super dark-colored, and barely tender when I touch it. It looks like one larger (but not big at all) spot with two very small ones right above it. Should I be concerned? Do you think that it's just not healing, or could it be something else more problematic? I know that this isn't really an important question, but I wanted to ease my mind about it and just make sure that it isn't anything serious. Or is it?

Thank you in advance for any help, advice, and feedback! (:

Lucky ducky. (; Haha, this is so off-topic for this discussion. xD

I know this post is quite old, but thought I would comment anyway. Because I have the same problem, and I'm a bit concerned. Actually, I have a bruise-looking discoloration on the front of both hips, in the same location described above. They kinda match. They're not tender, but they itch sometimes. I began LFRV in January, and soon after they appeared. And boy, was I eating a ton of oranges and blood oranges every day for breakfast during the winter months so I was getting more than enough Vit C. My weight has been constant and I'm active and getting 3500-4000 cal per day. I feel great, the best I ever have. But these darn things, they haven't gone away...


You might want to see a doctor and have blood work done to rule out deficiencies like b12 or iron or even vitamin D and just make sure everything is working right.  

Next, in some people, especially if they are in detox, might develop liver spots.  These could be temporary.  

Since yours are itchy, I would look at it more in the skin eruption category, or a reaction to something rather than a liver spot though.  

Many members here react to raw foods like kale, chard, spinach, and dates in part because of their high oxalate content.  May be try a low oxalate version of the diet.  

Oxalate Health Impact

Most humans and primates need vitamin C because they cannot make it, and new research is showing some of us need it in megadoses like thousands of mg everyday.  Getting a hit of vitamin C from fresh raw foods (not supplements) every 4 hours is ideal.  Any excess we eat is excreted in the urine so no worries there.  

Good luck and Peace, PK

Thanks for your input, PK. The fact that they're both in the same spot,  on opposite sides of me, provides a clue, although I'm not sure what. But you're right. I should get blood work done. I probably am deficient in B12, no doubt actually. Maybe iron as well.
