[CLEAN Challenge] What To Expect During Detox

The goal of CLEAN is to rid your body of toxins and substances that cause inflammation in order to allow your body to 'rest' and detox.  Caffeine, alcohol, and sugar can cause withdrawal symptoms that are similar to any other addictive substance.  As your body begins to detox, you may begin to feel some side effects.  Headaches, sore muscles, cranky moods, insomnia and the general feeling of being physically weak are common during the first few days of the detoxification process. People who are coffee addicted may have stronger "pull out" effects, as usually their PH Balance is not normal.

According to experts, these detoxification symptoms are the normal reaction of a body in change. Note that when you undergo a detoxification process, you change your daily routine thus your body’s daily activities are altered.  If you start feeling dizzy and lightheaded, do not be alarmed. Give your body time to adjust to the changes. If you feel nervous and cranky, try taking a walk or doing some yoga exercises to calm yourself.  In a few days, you will start feeling a lot better!!
