Hello all,

Wanted to share something that may help you all if you are currently struggling.

My whole life, I have been able to completely read people whether I want to or not.

I couldn't be in crowds of people, go shopping, or watch much tv. I also see things in people, from pictures, houses, and over time, having this always on, it wears a person out.. It was hard to make friends, I was attracted to relationships with people that needed to be fixed (which always happened, the guy would end up being better off when we broke up because of the help offered and me damaged), and I was ALWAYS tired and ALWAYS in pain.

I couldn't go outside around people, sleep at night, exercise, I had hormonal imbalances resulting in cysts, hair loss, bone loss (before the age of 30), losing weight to the point of being underweight, and constantly being sick off an on. I was depressed. 

I couldn't look at people when I was talking to them because there were words and colors coming off of them about them, and usually it was their current problems, what kind of person they were, and what they are meant to do in life.

However, after I ended up in the hospital and after them not knowing how to help me, that's when I was completely done.

I just ate better. 

-----

It probably sounds like a trick, but that is it. I already wasn't able to eat wheat, dairy or dyes, so I just kept that up and tried eating strictly actual food. When I did, my body healed itself.  

Not only that, but I was able to handle these "things" coming from people a lot better. Still a big struggle every day, but not as debilitating.

I make sure to eat a LOT of healthy fats like nuts, oils, and salmon, dry beans, water, fruits and vegetables, potatoes, and squashes.

I don't eat anything with GMOs, known ingredients to cause hormonal imbalances, carcinogens, dairy, or processed food or sugar. No cheezits, smarties at night, frosted flakes, candy or canned beans (my downfalls).  All fresh and prepped meals.

I'm not a part of some exclusive weird vegan club or anything, i'm just doing what seemed right for me, and I wanted to share it with you guys being most of us are really sensitive. <3 

❁ ✾ ✽ ❃ ❋

I have mental clarity, I ACTUALLY SLEEP, my narcolepsy is not as bad, no debilitating cramps every month, no pit stains (sweating) year round, my eyelashes, nails and hair is growing a ton, i'm happier, and better able to meditate about things to make better choices. Not as many physical aches, my skin feels nicer, and I feel more still overall. Best of all, I am off ALL MY MEDS. 

I'm aware that some people are just fine eating conventional food and there's nothing wrong with that, I just wanted to offer perspective for the sensitives out there.

This kind of eating takes a little bit to stick to, you will need at least one person to help you if this is a new thing, and you may fall off the wagon a few times (I did much more than twice). BUT once you reach the point where you start looking at food differently, it's the best feeling in the world. 

Food really is medicine guys. Be well ♡

❁ ✾ ✽ ❃ ❋

I know this may not be something that can be done at the current moment for some people, but if you have small goals like working on a meal of the day or cutting out a certain thing, that is also progress. The best thing is the thing that works for your body. Follow healthy food blogs and people who eat how you want to! It makes it easier to reinforce and see the benefits. Forget the crash diets and cleanses because they don't work.

And leave the negative people in your life behind. The ones trying to tempt you away from your goal, or go to places that aren't a part of your goal. You will find that your good friends will stick with you, push you, and support you on your journey, and build you up.  

Also, if you need recipes or ideas, I can offer some. Being on a budget in school, I know how to put things together to taste good :]

And feel free to post your experience if you have gone through the same thing recently or want to start!

To clarify, I still eat lots of eggs daily, seafood [wildcaught], and kosher meats [from time to time]

The meats I usually eat monthly because they tend to be a little more expensive.

I have been raised on a somewhat organic diet, and I couldn't agree more with what you say about food being medicine.

I've noticed that when I cheat with fast food and the like, I do not function that well. Sadly, I'm quite tight on the budget now, so I couldn't afford fruit these days, fruits are expensive where I live, but hey, I always go for the natural option every time I could.

Also, we really are better off without negative people in our lives. Makes such a huge difference to be free of them.

Oh that's a bummer... I tend to go to ethnic markets where I live for fruit and whatnot because it can get expensive..

This is the same thing for me, now I can focus more on handling myself around people rather than being sick all the time. I got migraines almost daily and I got sick constantly. It was honestly really hard to live, but I found out I had to eat healthier because I'm sensitive to everything I eat as well, I only eat some dairy and chicken though, most red meat makes me sick as well. Its so interesting to find another person who experiences something similar!! Thank you for the post!!

Exactly!

My mother (who is also a sensitive) was telling me that I have to be careful with eating meat, especially meat that hasn't been slaughtered properly because I can absorb the negativity, and 'tainted-ness' of the meat and it will most definitely affect me. I wonder if that applies to other sensitives as well?  

It does also taste different because of the hormones released from the animal from stress, so that seems even more unappealing to me.. lol

It makes sense, but since culturally I was raised on halal meat [if we ate meat], I tend to stick to that.

I'm so happy to hear it worked for you too! :D

Red meat makes me sick also..  :S I don't understand the demand for not only red meat, but undercooked red meat..  Guess i'm some kind of alien. haha

And no problem! If I can prevent someone from going through the mess I went through by this post, I will be a very happy person. Sometimes modern medicine isn't enough, and the answer is so simple. :}

That, and making sure to drink enough water really helps. 

Cheers to us all. We'll make it♥

I would agree that diet is important since our bodies are already stressed from being what we are. By eating poorly it contributes to hormonal imbalance and anxiety triggers.

Some empaths are so sensitive that they pick up the energy in food. They can feel the hardship from the migrant worker who picked the fruit, or the fear and misery of the slaughtered animal. I've read a blog from one empath who even picks up on the mood of the person preparing the food at restaurants and for that reason doesn't like eating out. That would be an especially hard thing to deal with and would probably push one to be a vegan.

Same experience, eating what is right for me has helped me get a grip on my sensitivity and emotions more than therapy, courses, etc. 

Just like for Hana, for me the main thing was A LOT OF healthy fat and protein – avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, seeds, nuts, fish, eggs, and after being vegetarian for 15 years I have returned to eating organic chicken broth or even meats occasionally (mostly under the influence of the protocol on http://kellybroganmd.com – still testing whether it helps or hinders, as I don't have much natural craving for meat and won't touch factory-farmed stuff). 

I don't eat anything pre-packaged, unless I've read all the ingredients and there is nothing weird in it. Mostly just throwing together grains (I'm from Eastern Europe so we have a good choice of gluten-free "kashas" here), veg, eggs, seeds, nuts, oils into meals that taste good – it doesn't even have to be complex cooking. 

Like Hana, I've gone off diary and wheat, which has resolved the chronic skin rashes I've had since I was 3. 

I've also studied Ayurvedic (traditional Indian) nutrition for a good 3 years now (taken a 2-year course), which has an individualised system (the recommendations aren't the same for everyone) that has helped me fine-tune these things.

So as said, for me that was worth more than therapy and what not in terms of balanced moods and feeling less "assaulted" by the various things I sense from random people – I don't have to use special techniques; it's more like there is an automatic filter and the negative stuff is keeping its distance without any effort on my part; and when it comes in, it's much easier to let it go again because my mind is so much clearer and more focussed.

So I can only say, YES!

I'm hoping to write an in-depth article on that on my blog some time soon. Based on my training I'm also qualified to give individualised nutritional/lifestyle consultations from that tradition – that can sometimes save you some trial-and-error (based on a Skype consultation or pictures + questionnaire / e-mails). You can contact me me if interested in discussing the topic (here or via my site).

@pinkrose thanks for saying :) i've just started this page last week, putting some of my ramblings online. i was wondering if there's anything in there that can be helpful to other people as well -- please feel free to share and comment.

i'm thinking of putting together a bunch of more structured resources in the future, so every kind of feedback will help me cover more viewpoints.

@hana or anyone who commented on this thread, since i'll be putting together an article on nutrition for empaths and sensitives, if you feel like contributing your experiences or recipes (and be mentioned as a contributor obviously), or giving other input or feedback on it, please let me know!

Hello all

In the future please do not advertise personal blogs/promotions on my posts. The purpose of this was to share experiences with one another, give help, share experiences, etc. This was not made for plugs.

If you have something you would like to share with everyone, please create a post or thread of your own and do so there.

Thank you

@hana:

Thanks for posting this for everyone. From asking around I have found that not all empaths are sensitive to food energy. But for those that are, it must be a painful existence at times. Your info. should give food sensitive empaths a better understanding of how to manage that while maintaining good nutrition.

@sashaw:

I checked out your website. Congratulations. It looks like you worked very hard on this. And it looks great with some very good articles. I wish I had found a website like that when I first become aware of my empath abilities. It does a great job of explaining things.

@hana sorry, this was my first day on this forum and i wasn't aware that it's against the etiquette to include a link to my site. this wasn't meant as a plug, i just got carried away because i've really been dealing with the topic for years and was about to write about it these days. my apologies and i'll start separate threads as you recommend.

For those sensitive to meat, how do you tolerate fish? Or did you go 100% vegetarian or vegan to feel your best?

For me personally some fish (wild-caught) but no or minimal meat seems the best. No idea why it feels different, since both is technically dead animals. 

I was vegetarian for about 15 years (didn't like meat since early childhood), then when I understood I'm sensitive to dairy tried to be vegan, but that left me spaced-out, always hungry, losing weight, and weak. I know though that it works for people of other body types. In my case, I went back on (countryside) eggs and fish and some animal fat and that seems fine. 

While I won't claim that I sense the mood of the person who cooked the food (although that's an official point in Ayurvedic nutrition, cooking the food in the right mental state), when I eat in restaurants I do often get an instant sense of whether the food was cooked for quality / with attention or just to fill / sell, and i usually feel crappy (stuffed but still hungry on some level) after eating the latter. 

I've realised I'm also sensitive to the quality of fruit / vegetables / animal products. It's like I sense some foods are radiating with vitality and others are not. e.g. i can eat one kind of apple and feel nothing, then another kind of apple and feel a "rising energy", like a little bubbling-up pleasant high in the body. I try to listen to subtle signals like this when picking foods.

again, that's a concept that exists in Ayurveda, where there is a system for observing "post-digestive" effects; i.e. you don't just pay attention to how something tastes in your mouth, but also how it "tastes" in your body -- the latter is your criterion (and if you're sensitive, it's easier to feel that too, presumably). that was one of the most helpful concepts for me ever, and this concepts of the felt (on the tongue and in the body on various levels) "qualities" of food seems quite absent in Western nutrition.

@Hop Daddy thanks, that was sort of the point – to put in one place the stuff I'd have needed years ago. Although you can't get everything from reading obviously.
