Hi there. Haven't been here for a while. Many of you know me as the girl who had chronic fatigue and went on the raw food diet. I am now 6 months on this diet and will never go back. When my CF was at it's worst, my saliva PH was 4.5, or extremely acidic (a healthy body is 7.2). After a few months eating fruits, green veggie juice, seaweed, soaked nuts, seeds, lentils, my PH went up to 6, and I no longer felt like I had the flu. Now I am at 7.0, and I look younger than I did before I got CF. I also lost 18 pounds, which is 10 pounds lighter than my whole adult life. The difference between a regular diet and going RAW, is you keep your curves. When your hormones balance after you detox and a nutritionally 'stuffed', you have great womanly curves, with a small waist. This lifestyle has made my life so much better.
