"Dear Karen, Thank you so much for your weekly e-mail support. I am 5 feet 3 inches and I weigh 210 lbs. I have received your information for about a year and I had never gone raw. Now I have finally done it, four days raw, and I have lost three pounds and feel great when I wake up. My problem, I am feeling that kind of anxiety that some feel before their periods begin. I feel good and yet "scared", do you have any idea why I am feeling that?
"It's seems the diet is bringing up lots of feelings, probably the feelings I have been stuffing away with dead food. Perhaps you don't have the answer for me, each person is different, but it is really strange to have only raw foods, I feel sort of "high" like one might feel after using marijuana but I also feel that sort of paranoia that comes with it as well. Any ideas would be great." ~ Stefka Bolton
Dear Stefka, thanks so much for reaching out to ask. This is such a great question which is why I asked your permission to publish it. It is a joy for me to address this, and here, finally is my answer - you asked about a month ago so I'm curious as to what has happened on your new raw journey since then?
No matter, here is my take on what you describe based on my own personal experiences and those I have come across over the past decade or so.
