Detox symptoms: What to expect


Detoxing is about resting, cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins and feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health. Starting on a journey of healthy eating, you might find that you will suffer detoxing symptoms.

Detox can create a number of symptoms in your body as your body goes through the process of purifying itself and eliminating toxins.

♦ Some common detox symptoms include:
♦ Headaches
♦ Lethargy
♦ Temporary muscle aches
♦ Mucus or other discharge
♦ A coated, pasty tongue
♦ Flu-like symptoms
♦ Irritability
♦ Difficulty sleeping
♦ Weakness
♦ Cravings
♦ Nausea
♦ Constipation OR Diarrhea
♦ Gas

Do not be distressed, it is natural and your body will settle after a few days. If any of these symptoms persists, consult your doctor.

    I have been diagnosed with MND, and also have high %s of minerals and metals toxins in my body.
    I have been using your 400ml Herbex Detox Concentrate, the Berry Flavoured, for cleaning and eliminating toxins, but now it is finished, and your website told me that it is out of stock, and the local retailers told me it is discontinued, what is happening?
    I am living in the Strand, Western Cape.

      Good Day Annamie

      We are sorry for the inconvenience but the concentrate has indeed been discontinued. We are happy to say however that the Detox drops have not.

      It is available for purchase and the ingredients are the same as the concentrate.
