21 Common Detox Symptoms and Natural Ways to Ease Them


Detoxifying the body from all the junk you put into it on a daily basis is essential for keeping all the systems, organs, cells, muscles and tissues strong and healthy. Anytime your body becomes overloaded with refined sugars and wheat, alcohol, caffeine, pesticides, fungicides, unnatural dyes and MSG, illness starts happening inside the body. In order to help rid the body of these substances is to consume a diet rich in raw vegetables and juices, take detoxifying supplements and have a colonic hydrotherapy treatment done. However, it is important to keep in mind when detoxifying the body you could potentially experience symptoms.

 Detox Symptoms

Experiencing detoxifying symptoms during the detoxifying process is rare because your body naturally detoxifies itself on a regular basis. With that said, the symptoms you do experience when detoxifying your body are ones that typically occur because of withdrawals from substances such as caffeine, alcohol, smoking, sugars, processed foods and other stimulating substances. This is because your body has been use to these substances for so long that when you take them out of your diet due to detoxification your body craves the particular substances causing you symptoms such as:

  • Extreme Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Jitters
  • Tremors
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Exhaustion
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Brain Fog
  • Body Aches
  • Extreme Cravings
  • Constipation
  • Chills
  • Skin Problems such as Acne Breakouts
  • Cold Sores and Fever Blisters
  • Weight Gain and Weight Loss
  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Depression
  • Mood Swings

The only way to get rid of these substances from your body is to allow the body to detoxify itself and rid all these harmful substances from it naturally. There is no easy way to prevent or avoid going through these withdrawals since your body has had them contaminating it for so long. There are things you can do to help ease the symptoms of the detoxification process.

Natural Ways to Ease Detox Symptoms

There are many ways you can ease the symptoms that come along with the detoxification process.

  1. The first way is by taking hot steamy baths made with relaxing sea salts. Baths help ease chills, body aches and pains, skin breakouts, extreme fatigue as well as headaches.
  2. Sipping on herbal teas that help ease body discomforts, brain fog, skin sores, nausea and vomiting is another way. Some of the best herbal teas to sip on while you are going through the detoxification process are chamomile, ginger root, peppermint, holy basil, lemon balm, lemongrass as well as licorice root.
  3. Getting plenty of sleep and eating a well balance diet are also essential for reducing the symptoms of detoxification.
  4. If you are suffering from headaches try applying cold or warm compresses to your head and the back of you neck for natural relief.
  5. Even going outside for some fresh air, and taking deep breaths helps calm the mind while relieving mood swings, depression as well as anxiety and panic attacks.

End Notes for Detox Symptoms

Remember, the detoxification process itself does not bring about symptoms, but the substances your body is addicted to and is trying to rid is what causes the awful symptoms during the detoxification process. Detoxifying the body can be rough, but the end results of pure overall wellness of the body, mind and spirit will be worth it. In fact, you may even feel the healthiest you have ever felt in your entire life because you will have more energy and feel happier.
