I used to say I could digest a jeep if I could only chew it. Then I went on a raw foods diet for nearly a year. I couldn't figure out why I wasn't feeling so great and was having gas, bloating, digestive issues and generally not enjoying radiant health like everybody else on raw foods. I really messed up my digestion big time.
Then I started reading Andreas forum and learned about ayurveda. I learned some body types don't do well on raw foods. My body was sending me clear signals that it didn't appreciate all that expensive organic raw food, but I didn't listen. I tried to force it to accept what everybody else said was the BEST diet.
In the process I really weakened my digestion AND weakened my spleen and it's taken a long time to get back to where I was before I went raw. The most important thing I've learned from the experience is to honor what my body is telling me instead of trying to override it.
