Anonymous asked: Hi Ali, I have recently gone mostly raw vegan (about 6 months) and have started gaining some weight. Is there a reason for this (I do regular exercise and yoga)? I have never had problems with weight but I have recently gained about 10 pounds since I've gone raw. Should I cut down on fruit intake?
ugh sorry to hear that. what is your nut and fats intake? whats you basic diet? how much fruit are you eating? caloric intake estimate?
I am having lower back pain that came on rather suddenly. What kinds of stretches can I do to alleviate the pain?
Anonymous asked: Hi Ali! Recently I learned that NIGARI can help with reducing symptons of depression, low calcium and consequently of this, tremors. All of which I experience for years. I've been searching around on google but I can find one answer that is the same. Do you happen to know what is the right dosage to drink NIGARI, mixed with water? How many glasses a day? Thanks so much for your help, I really appreciate it :)
the dose is just a couple of drops but it depends on the exact concentration you get. also make sure to adjust your diet so that you are getting the proper nutrition.
lunacherub asked: Hi Ali! I was wondering if there was yoga for your feet. I recently sprained my foot/ankle and I just want to put less stress on that area if possible.
ouch sorry to hear that. do upper body (push ups on the knees) and core exercises. and once you start healing you can add some gentle foot stretches.
