Hypersensitivity ‘Finding the Solution’ – Part 7

solution to hypersensitivitycont…

Being light, eating raw felt really good at the time. At least so I thought. There were some other really good health benefits. However peoples perception of you were that you were reeeeally weird. Most importantly it was hard for my kids.

I met lots of new people – Raw Foodist and they were buzzing away. Have you tried this , and that. Cooked food is killing! What percentage are you raw? Are you 100% or not. It felt like being around this cult and if you are not careful you can get really sucked in. Not that they mean to harm or hurt you or want your money. But in retrospect can have to question whether you can create a balanced diet when going down such a righteous and committed path. Most importantly can you integrate with the rest of society. And most importantly can your family live with you!

It is very easy to sit back and talk in retrospect but at the time you cannot see it. But I had a good reason to be there then,  I had major problems being hypersensitive, this offered me a solution. It took away a lot of the digestive and physical pains that were so difficult to endure.

It was a great experience and education most importantly. I learnt so much about nutrition, food preparation (better not mention the word  cooking here). And now 10 years on my knowledge base of nutrition has benefited. To summarise on this period of my life I would say raw food is logical, it is ethical, it should form part of everyone’s diet. However it should not take over it. It is important that other aspects are taken into account when trying to create a balanced healthy nutritional base to your constitution.

And then there was foraging!!!  [to be continued…]
