Committing yourself to a detox takes dedication and willpower, especially the first time you do one. The unknowns and the uncertainties could drive a person crazy just trying to figure the entire process out. One of the most common concerns to a detox cleanse newbie is what to expect to feel during and after detoxification, and how to deal with those feelings. Here we’ll explore every common feeling, from the pangs of hanger to the discomfort of withdrawal, and explain why in the end, it’s 100% worth it.
First, let’s start at the beginning. Before we scare you away with the physiological side effects of a healthy and fortifying detoxification, I’d like to remind you of why you’re doing this in the first place. Chances are fairly good that you didn’t just wake up one day and decide, “hey, I think I’ll start a detox cleanse today.” You’ve probably started noticing unappealing aspects of your health and appearance that have driven you to the decision to detoxify your body for a while now.
