Has Juicing made you feel worse?

Hello 

Have any of you felt worse when eating raw vegetable or when drinking raw  juice ?

Yesterday evening, David made me an aperitif of Absolut vodka, filtered water and freshly squeezed tangerines.  That made me feel wonderful.  However, I could not eat a raw potato, or a parsnip cooked or raw.  The very idea makes me feel ill.  

If you feel worse when eating raw vegetables, do remember that many plants belong to the solanaceae family and although a green potato is out and out poisonous, aubergines and, tomatoes are not, but could well be better digested if cooked.  Look up 'the solanaceae family'..............................Sarah

Good point Sarah! Homina, the other name for the Solanaceae family is Nightshade! I avoid eating them, but not strictly. They make me very, very tired and makes my joints ache! but some people react badly to them, goji berries and gooseberries are also in the family, the 'capi' is the tell-tale sign. it took me a long time to realise they're related to deadly nightshade!  I only became sensitive once MSi really took hold and i intend chilli peppers to be my favourite start to the day again! paired with Sarah's vodka, it would make any day!

True Jane, it is a very wide family and either one which didn't affect me at all, or maybe I got over it before I knew that it might not be one of the best families of to eat.

By the way, another member of the family is woody nightshade and cows can get so adddicted to it that they pull hedges apart to get to it!........................Sarah

I ask because some of  the folks over at the ME/CFSi forum seem to have a problem with raw juices 

I am comparing illnesses
