:shock: My husband and I have finished two days on week one and seem to be having symptoms of detoxification. Is this typical?

Symptoms include facial breakout, gas, hives, congestion, and headache.

Hunger has not been an issue.

Please share your experiences!

Re: Detox Symptoms

Detox symptoms can occur the first couple of days of beginning a cleanse or switching to a whole foods diet (particularly if it's a drastic change from a diet based in more processed foods). They typically resolve within several days. Hang in there! If the symptoms don't improve within a week, you may want to explore the possibility of another cause for the symptoms with your healthcare provider.
