I have been vegan now for 8 years living on fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds, grains and rice and have still found myself suffering food poisoning!
Admittedly both were in third world countries which certainly doesn’t make it any better. Just last night and I found myself throwing up in a small Thailand guest house Not fun at all! I hate being sick when you are alone in a foreign country.The first time was 3 years ago when I was in India doing a Astanga Yoga Teacher Training course and I got rice poisoning from eating vegetable Biryani. I threw up for 24 hours and I have since taken a wide berth on rice.
However it was through this experience in India that my Yoga practice changed significantly as I could no longer strain and push myself in my practice. I had to go extra slowly in fear of either being sick or having a horrible experience in the yoga shala. My practice and flexibility totally opened up as I relaxed and just breathed! My teachers had told me this forever and at that point thats all I could do! Wow what a concept ha ha ha. Ever since my practice has become lighter and softer, no longer striving or pushing and naturally blossoming.
