I have been eating an all raw vegan diet for 6 months. It's the best thing I've ever done for my health! I feel better than I ever have! Unfortunately, my healing is a slow process(I'm a kapha).I experience relapses in health when I dont stick to eating the same thing everyday(I dont start eating cooked but I sometimes eat too much sweet fruit and fat). Its a little dissapointing sometimes when I read all the glowing testimonials of people who have been eating nothing but garbage their whole lives and then all of the sudden after going raw heal so quickly, but when I think of how I was a year ago, I've made TREMEDOUS progress. I still do not function normally, its probably partly because of blood Sugar swings that happen when I dont stink to the same meals, but Im finally able to sleep during the night and Im able to play my music and go out on the weekends. Right now I'm addressing some other issues such as heavy metals and Gallstones and Im starting to feel even better! I have to be very careful and take things very slow when trying new things, just recently I stopped taking all supplements because I was feeling depressed and now my Depression is gone. Im starting to see my diseases as blessings because its allowing me to rest and learn so much about health that will serve me for the rest of my life! I know this may sound funny since I'm not exactly in perfect health but I'm happier than I've ever been. I've spent my whole life sleep deprived because this society doesnt allow the kind of sleep I need, but now I can get all the sleep and rest I need and truly enjoy myself, instead of pushing myself so hard which is what made me sick in the first place. I've completely exhausted all my energy reserves from years of sleep deprivation and now I think its going to take awhile to get it back. But I'm being patient and enjoying the process. It's all I can do. Thanks for letting me get this all out, its very liberating.
