THE BOWEL AS A DUMPING GROUND: THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHERS

Suzi had suffered with a swollen face, mental dullness, headaches and visual disturbances periodically since she was a child. When she was 24 she saw a nutrition counsellor who explained about the Toxic Colon Syndrome. She gave up tea, coffee and alcohol and lived on vegetables, fruit, beans, lentils, whole grains, nuts, seeds, goat’s milk and soya products for a month. She felt sick and had headaches for the first two days then she felt progressively better; she lost weight, her face did not swell, she was mentally clearer and her eyesight improved. She has kept to the basic diet but has included fish, chicken and eggs. While cleaning up her diet has changed her life she has not become obsessive about it and lapses at holiday times. Her symptoms return if she does this for too long.
Pete’s digestion had been upset for three years, ever since he suffered an attack of diarrhoea while on holiday abroad. He complained of bloating, constipation, discomfort after certain foods and insomnia. After full gastroenterological tests he was diagnosed as having the Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He was given a high-fibre diet and antispasmodic drugs, but did not improve. He was not convinced when the value of the raw food diet was explained to him; he argued that since he could not digest cooked vegetables he was unlikely to digest
them raw. He gave up dairy produce, cut down on coffee and alcohol and started a 70 per cent raw food diet. He took time over his meals and chewed them well. His digestion did not improve in the first week and he was beginning to get discouraged when he noticed a rash he had had on his legs for months had completely cleared up. He continued with the diet and within a month was feeling much better. He keeps well if he combines foods carefully and includes lots of salads and fruit. How the enzymes in raw food aid digestion is fully explained in Raw Energy, by Leslie and Susannah Kenton.
