Health / Numbness in arms and hands on a raw paleo diet
« on: January 17, 2011, 07:14:09 am »
I have noticed that I am waking up more often with numbness in my hands and more regular muscle cramps in my feet and lower legs at night.  Anyone else suffer from these symptoms on a raw paleo diet?  My food intake is mostly raw red meat, raw tuna, vegetables (mostly in juice), 5-6 young coconuts a day, some fruit, and 3-4 raw eggs a day.

I will be traveling to attend a meeting near Pembroke Pines and then another meeting in Ft Meyers in late January and wanted advice on organic stores in these cities.  Anyone from these cities?

Health / What do you take for a bad cough and flu symptoms?

I am trying raw eggs with orange juice and alternating with juiced ginger, raw lemon juice, and a bit of raw honey.  Any one else try something else?

One thing I noted about Raw Food diets is the limited amount of calcium.  If it is not easy to get raw milk, what do you do?  I find in the past when I did not have enough calcium, I get leg or foot cramps and once I take calcium supplements for a few days this goes away.  I noticed the same thing again lately when on a raw food diet.  I can take supplements but what do others do for calcium?

I have seen some amazing results on a raw diet to help improve my health but recently I have had to take large doses of prednisone (60mg/day) which immediately saved me from a more serious eye operation by dramatically reducing fluid build up that caused a tractional retinal detachment.  Within two days on prednisone my surgery was postponed and I may only need a minor operation to remove a membrane as long as the fluid does not build up again.  I can thank the fast working prednisone for helping so quickly to reduce inflammation and my strong immune system that was also, unfortunately, increasing the fluid build up.  The problem now is with the side-effects of the prednisone.  My blood sugar levels have jumped to 146 so I have to cut back a bit on fruit and certain juices but the worrying side effect is the almost complete drop in my white blood cell count to less than 50% of minimal levels. This was deemed necessary in the beginning but now I have a compromised immune system and have been warned about raw food. I am considering to temporarily switch to a cooked paleo diet until my immune system is back up as I gradually get off prednisone over the next month.  Any advice?

How does one maintain a mostly raw diet while flying internationally and stating in hotels?
