You have spent a lifetime being exposed to toxic environments and years upon years of toxins being lodged into your body. You cannot rid yourself of these toxins in a weekend.
Detoxing and cleansing programs that are short term can be ineffective for several reasons. Firstly, detoxing really needs to be a lifestyle approach. Secondly, detoxing can release large numbers of toxins that flood into your blood stream which can cause added stress on your body. These can include skin problems, like acne. Worse yet, your fast detoxing may be in vain because of the body’s inability to release and eliminate toxins fast enough and may end up being stored right back in your fat cells.
Do you need a detox?
Usually when you start to detoxify, your body goes through some normal, unpleasant symptoms. This is due to the toxins being released from your organs and body tissues. Also your immune system kicks into gear trying to eliminate these pollutants. You may feel like you're getting the flu, because:
You may experience fever, headaches, weakness, swollen limbs or face, faster pulse, nausea, vomiting, pain, skin rashes or eruptions if you are detoxing too fast. Since some of the symptoms for the healing crisis time are the same for symptoms of a detox going too quickly, there are some ways to distinguish between regular detoxing and abnormal symptoms 1. The main distinguishing factor is the duration. You can tell the difference between the two, because the healing crisis period should only last the first week or so. After that you should feel better than when you started the detox. If your symptoms worsen, continue after the first couple weeks or are persistent, it may indicate that you should back off a bit on the detoxing.
