Detox. It's More Than Just Physical!

#GoRaw day # 114..
When you go raw you expect a detox. But generally people talk about the physical aspects of detox such as flu-like symptoms. Emotional detox isn't expected, really.

But that's what's happening.

Lately my irritability has been building. Unsure for how long but at least a week. The past 2 days I wake up to an alarm of soft music as if it was heavy metal screaming at me. Everything bothers me more than normal. Sounds, people, drivers, too much talking, too much to do, things not working out... I want to scream. Frequently, each day.

I used to have panic attacks daily until I found yoga. It's been a long time since my last one... until today. If you've ever had a full-blown panic attack you know they aren't fun.

I was thinking that it was so strange since I'm fully raw and taking other things to support my liver (spinach, greens powder, tummeric, green tea etc) and yet I'm a nervous wreck and emotional basket case. What the....?? And then it hit me.... when you detox you get worse before better. I messaged a friend who has been raw for way longer than me and she confirmed it. There are more levels than just a physical detox.

What a relief. I am not crazy and it will eventually get better as I heal on all levels... physical and emotional. Whew. I can't wait to be at the end of this tunnel!! 

Moving forward, I will continue to take the liver supporting/cleansing foods/herbs (a toxic liver can cause emotional troubles) because I want to be the best self I can be. I will try to remember to meditate more often, do less and avoid people whenever possible. Shouldn't be too hard in December, right? Wish me luck on that one. ;-)


  1. Hey Kim, guess we all remove the physical from the emotional but as the traditional teachings show, we are all one. Happy to hear you have found the answers and can now relax (ha!) into the cleanse and healing.

  2. Hi Kim,

    Exactly right perception you shared about detox that it's more than just physical. I really appreciate your thought and understood that what should I do in my real life. Looking to hear from you more post related on this topic.

  6. On the off chance that you are constantly sick then it's best to get the direction of a wellbeing specialist, specialist or naturopath who is proficient and experienced in detox. Something else that you have to remember is that purifying can get to be distinctly addictive.

  7. Finding an opportunity to JOIN a rec center, it doesn't mind really work out at one can be troublesome and require a level of duty that some are either unwilling or not able to make.
