I experienced an awful cleansing reaction, or symptom. The first seven days raw I was unable to lie flat without coughing. I attribute this to that awful Folger's coffee in a (tea) bag, for which I am thankful, because if that stuff wasn't so poisonous, I might not have found myself so toxic in need of an answer. Day 8 I was able to lie flat. Now I can twist and curl while sleeping without gagging.
My eyelids have lifted. I had developed these fatty deposits in the wedge between my eyeballs and my eyebrows. I believe they were from drinking wine. I hardly ever drank alcohol, but the few times I did, I would wake up and notice that there was a fatty deposit under my eyelid. Well, these are now gone and my eyes look lifted. I look alert. I can now do crazy things with eyeshadow, if I need to do anything exotic.
While looking for a tooth product with white oak bark in it, I found Tonya Zavasta at beautifulonraw.com and she is beautiful. She has a seemingly terrific line of beauty products. I have ordered the toothpaste, but have not received it yet. I am reading one of her e-books. She is very intelligent. I have enjoyed her youtube videos also. Her transformation is admirable. She also touts eating twice a day, breakfast and lunch. I don't know if I will be able to do this because I work nights, but the principal is in my mind.
I wonder, does the sagging skin go away? My waist line is droopy after a 12 pound rapid weightloss. I'm sure it will tighten up eventually.
I am awed and excited about the raw food lifestyle. The future is bright. Optimum health, beauty and intellectual experience is at my door. I am determined to stay on this with patience and understanding I vow to get through every temptation and cleansing symptom.
