The reply to your quotes:
Because of this i would suggest you take a standard multivitamin/mineral to cover your nutritional bases.
If he already covers his bases, a "standard multivitamin/mineral" extra could, in those "multi
(various) vitamin", excess in the dose he
already had... Don't you think?
As i said earlier, you should supplement with a one a day multivitamin because the human body isn't built for raw food and you might end up
deficient in something or other.
This is true when someone is lacking in some sort of element. He isn't. Again, telling him to "cover his bases" with supplements, when he already
has his bases covered, means excess.
You case you haven't figure it out by now, excess is bad.
The "detox" effect is a myth.
This just made me laugh. This almost sounds like one of those commercial for snake oil that solves all peoples problems. "You don't have toxins in
your system! just take this magic pill and you'll be fine!".
Wrong. There are toxins in your system, always. Some are even good. But detox doesn't stand only for toxins. It always stands for detoxication
, which is also the process to get rid of the bad things in your system, toxins or not.
Again, Vitamin C isn't a toxic. Neither is A, B, E or any other form of vitamin. But in excess, they become toxic to the system.
If he has a bad health, his body is full of toxins, and those can even englobe fat for that matter.
Detoxing your body is getting rid of various forms of elements that are in excess. Excess being the key word here.
And honestly, your explanation about the blood sugar... Is pathetic, and I'm trying to not be offensive.
You don't even know the side effects of various forms of minerals, vitamins and proteins, and yet, you assume all symptoms are associated with sugar
levels as if he was diabetic.
The only way to counter it is just keep going and wait for it to sort itself.
The danger of this statement is so painfully obvious that I don't even need to explain.
I would like to recommend that you abandon the juicer and stick with a blender.
First of all, juice isn't bad. It gives a rest for a digestive system in order for the other to continue to function correctly. For example, in some
missions, if we only have a orange or two (example), we drink it in the morning, and we eat it whole in the night.
Why? Because juice is absorbed as a liquid, is easy to digest and has energy. But if you are low on your water levels, in case of a desert, you can't
Although the orange has juice, either way, the act of eating produces saliva, which may or may not be replenished by the juice, which can cause you
to even lower more your water levels and...well...die.
But the difference between juice and blender isn't a mistake. He should jump from eating whole, juice and blend. Not blending only because "cleaning
the juicer is hard lol".
Eating whole gives you the hardcore elements of the food. Juice gives you the ones that are more abundant in liquid form and blending gives you
But blending also destroys
elements. That's the problem. That's why you can't
do only with the blender.
That's a gym myth
Oh and if that is the entire daily consumption then you are woefully under consuming, you need more calories than that. Some protein would help
Again. Risk of excess.
The headaches and other symptoms are your body dealing with the changes in blood sugar and the various hormonal changes which will occur with a
lower meat intake.
Or maybe it's his system saying "stop this, I can't handle it any longer". Have you thought about that?
He went from a bad diet, to another. Of course he is going to feel effects. But the problem is in overlooking those symptoms. It can be from withdraw
of elements that were in excess earlier in his life.
But it can also mean that his system isn't being able to coop with it all, and possibly even kidney failure. Sadly, those are only detected when he
wakes up in a hospital.
I would again suggest a good multivitamin/mineral complex and also you should include more protein. If you don't want to eat meat and fish
then get some soy protein from your local gym of health food store.
The fact that you are here flagging that you are only helping and that you know that you have knowledge in this area, and then advise him to go to the
local gym in order to get his food supplies or proteins or whatnot, is at the very least...... laughable.
You do know that the very large percentage of products in gyms are synthetic, right? Just because a label says "natural" or "raw", or something
like "extracts of...", doesn't mean it's good or even natural.

My brother diet was pretty much the same as the OP's but the doctor still gave him a broad spectrum multivitamin/mineral drink because he
believed the raw food intake my brother had could lead to deficiency and it was best to protect against that.
Your brother went to the doctor. Your brother measured his levels. Your brother had his system analyzed and a prescription based on those levels and
on this anatomy.
You don't know the OP from anywhere else but the forum
I find a bit intriguing that someone that "studies" biology fails to actually understand such a small leap in logic.
As for the rest of your jiberish... You don't answer because you don't have the knowledge. You are commiting your responses on complains about how I
talk, instead of refuting what I say. Which, you didn't at all.
Cya later, and watch out for those gym fibers.
