What To Expect In Detoxification

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.

Common Complaints Before Detox:
  • Fatigue
  • Constipation
  • Relentless Headaches
  • Persistent Muscle Aches and Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Lack of Weight Loss
  • Mental Obscurity
  • Strong Sugar and Carb Cravings

The good news is that many of the symptoms that you’re already dealing with due to the toxins lining your body, mirror the symptoms of what to expect during the withdrawal of a detox. The reason that’s such good news is because during your detox you will unlikely feel any worse than you do right now, but after you complete your detox you will feel physically reenergized, and mentally recharged.


When you compare the two lists it’s easy to see that enduring detoxification will make you feel about the same (during) as you did before the cleanse. Basically there is very little to lose when you execute a detox and so much to gain. After the detox is when you’ll notice that you’re starting to lose that stubborn weight, and can concentrate on important tasks better. You’ll realize that, although while you were in the middle of the detox you craved carbs and sugar more than ever before, you don’t really miss them now.

It is important to follow-up a healthy detox in the right manner though, so that you do not immediately destroy all of the progress that your body has worked so hard to accomplish. You may feel as though you want to shove every last bit of food into your mouth immediately after a detox cleanse, simply because you haven’t been able to for the past week or more. I urge you to strongly reconsider. You have just managed to rid your body of many unhealthy substances in an effort to reset your system, do you really want to ruin all of that hard work in the first day back?


Once your detox cleanse is finished you essentially have a choice to make. You have two options. You can either go back to eating and living the way you did before your detoxification and eventually continue to feel sluggish, achy, and probably put on more weight; or you can take the healthy eating habits you learned during your detoxification and incorporate them into your daily life. Your perception of the effectiveness of your detox cleanse will depend heavily on this one decision.
