Have any of you actually gotten worse when using raw juices?
Yes, i can't tolerate any raw vegetables, especially juices.
Do you have any idea why?
Yes, juicing made us seriously worse. I think too many folates.
Why do you think folates are the problem?
My stomach doesn't like them, but they do give me a little tiny boost (probably because I don't eat enough vegetables!).
Allergies and Pseudo-allergies, intollerances, leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disease.
I must admit this is intriguing
Most interesting I wonder how common this is with people who believe they have CFS?
Thanks for the feedback all of you
feeling worse the first few days ,maybe even 1-2 weeks is normal from what i know..is the detox process..
No that's not normal. It's food we're talking about, not a medical treatment.
Feeling lousy because of blood sugar swings and a complete change in micronutrient ratio until one is accustomed to the juices is possible, but i don't believe it has anything to do with "detox". Feeling really sick after juicing has more to do with allergies, pseudo-allergies and intollerances.
I think it may be different for different people
Yes, I did until I got to know from a fructose intolerance test that I can´t break down more than just small amounts of fructose. I used to put some fruit in the mixer to make the juice more tasty. I also had a food sensitivity test that showed sensitivities to ananas and bananas among other fruits.
During the first 7 years of illness (1990's) I was juicing mass amounts of greens etc. I started improving over those years but I don't attribute it to juicing. So the answer is no, juicing did not cause negative problems.
Juicing has always benefited me so I find it interesting so many have problems with it
What made you improve?
Nothing in particular. It was spontaneous.
I see I find that hard to believe
Why? I initially was diagnosed with PVFS back in the 90's and it developed into M.E.
@gettinbetter, spontaneous remission without any form of treatment or specific dietary regime is not at all unusual.
For many of us, this illness follows a relapsing/remitting course. Over the past 40+ years I have experienced several spontaneous remissions. Living in the UK as I do, there are no viable treatment options available and I was doing nothing out of the ordinary that could possibly have contributed to a remission, no prescription medication, no supplements, no special diet . . . it just happened.
