I'm confused. I understand the benefits of a raw diet and am curious, but this doesn't make sense to me: "If you into a raw food diet it is normal to experience headaches, you get tired easily and skin rashes, these are normal side effects." Why would that be a fair trade?

the side effects are temporary and could be related to detoxing! after that, just get all the mineral and nutrients you need, especially B12, and you are golden!!
