10. Questions & Answers
I suffer from eczema, and my hands and arms are very itchy and red with fluid oozing from certain places. Is there anything I can do for this discomfort while I am changing to a more healthful lifestyle?
The fluid coming from the skin eruption is of an acid nature which results in itching and burning on the skin. You could wash those areas with distilled water to remove some of the fluid. Until these toxins are eliminated, this condition will persist; but do not suppress these symptoms. The body will heal, and soon the skin will again be smooth. A few days fast should speed up this healing crisis.
I began a more healthful program and changed my diet to all raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. In a few days, my allergy symptoms got worse. What am I doing wrong?
You are not doing anything wrong. This may sound strange but it is a good sign for the symptoms to intensify. This indicates increased vitality and a more aggressive effort to eliminate accumulated toxins. This is a healing process. Do not worry, but be patient. Your symptoms will soon subside if you persist with your healthier regime, and you will feel much better than before the symptoms began.
I have a child who is hyperactive and it was determined that he is allergic to all citrus fruits. Why would he be allergic to such natural foods as oranges or grapefruit?
He has a very toxic condition, but his body will normalize when given a chance. Meanwhile, there are plenty of other fruits and vegetables he can eat. Keep him on an all-raw diet of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds; but for the time being, eliminate the citrus fruits. After a few months, you can gradually add some fruits to his diet as long as they are fully ripe. I believe that he will react favorably.
I have asthma, and every time I try to do any vigorous exercises I have an “attack” and have to stop. Since exercise is a part of the healthful living regime, how can I attain health without this important aspect of the program?
You must take first things first. My advice would be to go on a fast in order to eliminate some of the toxic buildup in your body. After the fast, adhere strictly to an all-raw Hygienic diet, and then gradually build up to a vigorous exercise program. This must be done slowly, so you must be patient. Do not exercise to the point of exhaustion as this will do more harm than good. You should feel invigorated and energetic after exercising. Just take it easy, and the rewards will come in increased vigor and health.
