Mild cleansing and flushing is the ideal response. There is a gradual and increased sense of well-being. A person will feel more energized, alert, active or light hearted; feel less fatigued, stressed, moody or irritated; sleep better, feel less to little tension in the body, and be better able to relax or rest.
Medium cleansing and flushing can have uncomfortable reactions in the body during the detox process. As toxins are released from the cells and fat cells, where they are stored, there can be sensations of discomfort, loss of appetite, fatigue nausea, light-headedness, mild headaches, mild muscle and joint aches and pains; a runny noise, loose bowls and more urination. This is natural. It is important to keep drinking water to continue the cleansing process and rest. The healthier the cells and the body becomes, the better the cells work to cleanse. The body WANTS to get rid of the poisons it has been holding! It knows it is getting healthier and is strong enough to do so!
Strong cleansing and flushing responses can be very uncomfortable and painful.The more toxins or serious toxicty the body is flushing, the stronger the release sensations can be in the body. This is called the “Correcting Crisis” or “Correcting Response”. It is a strong “toxic dump” reaction. Physicians and healthcare providers familiar with symptoms of a strong cleasing reaction, recognize the symptoms of “cleaning house”. These can be: rashes or hives, headaches, nausea, dizziness, flu- like symptoms of muscle and joint pain, fevers, fever blister erruptions, contipation or diarrhea, excess gas, irritability, insomnea,weakness and lethargy. A very big clean out and clean up!
