Raw Vegan Detox -Day 5 -Detoxifying Symptoms

Hello,  my friends this is day 5 of my raw vegan detox and it is the first day when I am starting to feel some detoxifying symptoms. This is a very normal phase of the detox and here are my thoughts about it , that I recorded , just before I made my dinner.

Detox can create a number of symptoms in your body as your body goes through the process of purifying itself and eliminating toxins.  Some common detox symptoms include:

  • headaches
  • lethargy
  • temporary muscle aches
  • mucus or other discharge
  • a coated, pasty tongue
  • flu-like symptoms
  • irritability
  • difficulty sleeping
  • weakness
  • cravings
  • nausea
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • gas

You may even find that the detoxing process causes you to suffer the old symptoms that you have had that the body has suppressed.  You may think that you are becoming ill but it is important that you continue with the detox and don’t take any medications to help with the symptoms.  Your aim here really is to remove all the toxins in your body , the best you can . So here are some tips to help you get through it.

Tips to cope with detoxifying symptoms

Detoxifying symptoms are  temporary, and usually passes within one to three days.

To cope with them it is important to drink plenty of fresh water, juices, and herbal teas. In a previous post I made a list of what to drink while detoxifying.raw vegan detoxifying symptoms

These will help to flush the body of toxins.  It is best to use pure water, and not water that comes from the tap.   Drink at least six to eight glasses of water a day.

If you are feeling lethargic or tired, the body is telling you that you need to rest.

Hot showers may be very helpful.  Have the water as hot as you can stand it and scrub the skin well.  This will help to eliminate toxins through the skin.

When you’re fatigued, the best thing you can do for your body is to just rest and let it go through the healing process.

There are people who find colon cleansing very beneficial , but this should be done by a professional .

Overall my personal take on the subject of detoxifying symptoms is simply let it take its course . Rest as much as you can , drink plenty pure drinks and if have any serious issues always ask a professional , that you can trust .

In the meantime, thank you very much for being here. I love sharing this amazing experience with you and learning from it.

Stay healthy and have an amazing day.

Sending Blessings and Love
