About 6 months ago I was diagnosed with acid reflux. I wasn't raw at the time so I hired a nutritionist (who believes in a meat-cooked diet) to help me with the condition. I tried everything for the heartburn and nothing worked except the RF diet (yay!), which I recently experimented with. However, after about two weeks being mostly raw I felt lightheaded, dizzy upon standing up after kneeling, forgetful, insomniaec, and chest pains. As I had a free follow-up appointment with the nutritionist 6 weeks later, I kept the appointment and told her that the RF diet was working for me. When she asked me how I was feeling physically I told her of my symptoms and she told me I was exhibiting symptoms of anemia and that I needed to eat meat THAT day, and every day thereafter. I was borderline anemia at my last physical so I got scared and had steak for breakfast the next morning. Then I felt the heartburn return. But it's two days later and I do feel better.
Could my symptoms have been detoxing and not anemia? Would it have been safe to wait things out? Looking back I have gone for weeks without meat in the past and have not experienced those symptoms to that extent. Has anyone else experienced similar detox symptoms, and if so did you wait it out, and if so, what happened next?
