Thanks Luckitri, I always pose questions here and get so much help and last night after posting that question 'detox' did come to mind.
She eats healthier then most SAD people but I think giving up meat would be a big deal. I do see that initially she was feeling positive about this change but now I can see where' she's look'n for something to be wrong.
Are there any more thoughts out there to the yellowing/sallow skin?
Ditto that. I was not going to get into medical but truth be known - all the dialysis patients I have ever known had the sallow skin. Maybe it is time for her to amp up the cleansing with some cleanses? I am waiting to order this book meself -
Is she drinking green smoothies? Perhaps it would help her if she spent a few days "feasting" on just juice and green smoothies -- to help cleanse, give her digestive system a break, and help her to eliminate the blockage.
I did some quick readings on this problem, and something I came across that made sense was vitamin deficiency...
I personally think that being vegetarian and vegan is the healthiest way to go, but when people switch from one diet to another, no matter how healthy it should be, they might have some trouble getting all the necessary nutrients at first.
She might want to take a multivitamin (if this is indeed her problem), and stop when she has learned where to get everything she needs. IntraMax is a good multivitamin, but insanely expensive. I would think that any vegan multivitamin would work, and it's only for the short term anyway.
Thanks everyone, my friend eats SAD though probably healthier then most, I was amazed when she gave up meat but I can see where even after feeling good for a few weeks she's looking for something to find vegetarianism wrong.
She does eat some veggies but no green smoothies.
I just hope she doesn't find the sallow skin a 'loop hole' to justify going back to eating meat.
Oh well, I try to be an attraction and not promotion but I know I still tend to give suggestions (nice word for advice)...I know being preachy is NOT the way to go so I can only hope when someone asks me a question, with your help, I can lead them on a healthier path then they've been on.
