Congratulations on your decision to participate in the 20-day Dherbs Full Body Cleanse. The program requires determination, but cleansing your body is an essential part of staying healthy. Cleansing can help you get rid of cravings, lose weight, maintain optimal bodily functions, improve circulation, and lower blood pressure. Think of cleansing as a tune-up for your body.
People often say that the hardest part of the Full Body Cleanse is sticking to the raw foods diet. It can be a challenge only eating fresh fruits, vegetables, and raw nuts and seeds for the duration of the cleanse, but that’s why we continually provide recipes on our website specifically for people on the cleanse. Don’t worry about calorie counting because you can eat until you are satisfied.
While the body is detoxing, it can eliminate toxins in various ways. Sometimes you may not feel in tip-top shape, but that means the cleansing process is working. If for some reason you feel sick for more than three days, your body may be reacting to something or a larger problem may be occurring. Call us at (866) 434-3727 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help. This doesn’t happen frequently, but you may experience the following symptoms while cleansing.
#1: Body Odor
Your body naturally sweats out toxins. Since the skin is the largest organ in the body, it regularly detoxes to stay healthy. Drinking a lot of water, sitting in saunas, and exercising can help your body sweat out these toxins more efficiently. To help curb body odor, try drinking freshly made green juices to increase alkalinity, stay hydrated, and try deep breathing techniques.
#2: Cold Symptoms
Sometimes people experience a runny nose, subtle cough, fatigue, or swollen lymph nodes while cleansing. This is your immune system’s response to cleaning toxins out of your body. One of the best things you can do is to drink soothing herbal teas like ginger, lemon, chamomile, Echinacea, or peppermint. It is also important that you get enough rest because that is one of the most efficient was for your body to naturally heal itself.
After doing the cleanse, most people feel like they have more energy than they’ve had in a while. During the cleanse, however, fatigue is one of the most common things people experience. The body is working at a higher level to remove waste, and people aren’t used to the low calorie diet. This is why you have to listen to your body. If you are hungry, eat food (so long as it is raw). It is optimal to eat superfoods like kale, almonds, avocados, spinach, blueberries, garlic, and ginger. If you are tired, get some rest. Listening to your body will help you maintain energy levels while cleansing.
#4: Constipation or Diarrhea
While you are cleansing, you may be using the restroom more or less than what you are used to. Firstly, eliminating your bowels 2-3 times a day is considered healthy. Since you will be eating a more fibrous diet, drinking herbal teas, and taking the colon formula to cleanse the digestive tract, you’ll notice healthier stools. If you experience constipation or diarrhea, try eating chia seeds, flaxseeds, aloe vera, leafy greens, fermented vegetables, or berries because all of these increase healthy gut flora.
#5: Gas or Bloating
Since your body may not be used to all the different raw foods, you may experience symptoms of gas or bloating. The high fiber content of fresh fruits and vegetables can sometimes induce a gaseous response to the production of healthy gut enzymes. To avoid being gassy or bloated, make sure to chew fibrous foods well and eat smaller meals more frequently rather than eating three large meals a day.
