I started eating a raw diet, dizziness, hypoglycemia


I started eating a raw diet yesterday. In the evening time, I had what felt like a brain zap. Everything became totally dizzy for less than a minute. I do have hypoglycemia and didn’t know if it was that or my body having withdrawals from processed food. I’ve never felt anything like that, but thought that it might be the body detoxifying itself. Has anyone else had something like this happen, when switching from processed food to raw?


Terrain answer:

It is best to transition slowly so we don’t change our internal chemistry too quickly. Dizziness can be a sign of detox, low blood sugar or withdrawal. Its impossible to say, but if the symptoms get too uncomfortable then it is best to slow down the process. Healing is a marathon, not a sprint. Take the time to transition over a few months or a year and you will find it is far more comfortable a process, both physically and mentally.
