30 Bananas a Day!

Hello. I'm new/transitioning to this lifestyle within a household of carnivores (I'm 16 and my parents are only allowing it because they don't really know what it is (which is horrible). Due to my age and financial dependency, I am forced to tolerate their constant negative and narrow-minded attitudes toward my choices, though theirs are a lot more unhealthy. I've been high carb, raw for about a week and a half now, and everything had been going well--until three days ago. After eating, my lips began to itch and swell. Not thinking anything of it, I continued my day as normal. Upon eating once more, my lips again began to swell and blisters developed (Note: none of the same food was consumed at each meal). This has continued every time I eat. My parents, seeing this as a "sign" that my diet is evil, are trying to convince me to eat a legume-heavy, high fat diet because "my body needs it". After being forced into a doctors office (to which I was prescribed steroids (yikes!), and advised that it might be an allergic reaction), I am incredibly frustrated. Has anyone else experienced/heard of this? I began thinking it may be cold sores, but they cover the entire surface of my lips, and I've never had cold sores before. I'm just not sure.

The EXACT same thing used to happen to me all of the time for a year before I went hcrv and for quite a while in my beginning days (about the first 100 days...I'm on day 135 as of today). I still have lip issues if I eat certain foods that have been sprayed with chemicals or cooked (conventional produce, dried fruits, dates). Not drinking enough water also causes my lips to react. You should be peeing clear/almost clear 8-12 times per day. Sometimes exercise can trigger a response and things like smoke or environmental factors can upset lips as well.

What have you been eating, drinking, doing activity-wise?

Oh, and the steroids that they prescribed...they only mask the problem. Once you go off of them, the lips go right back to how they were before the steroids. I was prescribed all types of meds for my lips, including steroids, and that's exactly why happened to me when I stopped using them.

Your lips are reacting because your body is trying to rid itself of toxins and the mucous membranes of the body (mouth, lips, etc) are a few of the first to show adverse reactions. If you've been eating lots of animal products for a while, this may be your body trying to expel them. Stick with the fruits and veggies, and try to eat lots of watery fruits like watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, etc. After eating, I find it very very helpful to gently wipe off my lips with water and a clean cloth or paper towel. It helps to remove the leftover fruit sugar residue and not leave it on the lips to cause itching or swelling.

If you have any concerns or any more questions, etc, I'm more than happy to help! I know how terrible it feels, but it will get better if you persevere.

Peace and hugs :)
