Detox Reviews

Well, we got snow like they were calling for. I don't think it is as bad as they were making it seem. I was thinking we would have so much snow that no one would be able to move! But the roads here are pretty much clear and it's just flurries falling. Thank goodness. I am just so ready for spring...actually I'm ready for summer. You'll NEVER here me complain in the summer about it being to hot. You can mark my word too.

Lately, I have just been feeling so crappy. I ache, I have a constant headache that just doesn't go away. I haven't figured out why I'm feeling this way. But I'm almost certain it's because I still have so much going on inside my body. Anyways, I have done several posts about a few detoxes.  And I decided today to do an update. I'll be really honest. I hate detoxes. Hate them. Yes, I said hate, because they just never make me feel good. And I know that is the point. Since your body flushes out all the toxins, it's working extra hard and you can feel like you're coming down with the flu. If you already have a sensitive stomach like me, it just amplifies your symptoms. And that's what I hate.

Here are the detox reviews and updates that I have tried:

Lemon Water- This one is the only one that hasn't given me any bad side effects. I still try to drink at least one glass of lemon water a day. What I have noticed, when I drink it regularly, my skin actually does glow. It flushes out the toxins really well because it's like a diuretic.

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar- Yuck. I didn't try drinking this. I just can't drink something that smells like rotten socks that have been soaked in their own stinkiness. I could never get over the smell, and I know if I do not like the smell of something. It'll make me feel sick. So I just didn't do this. And I won't. I give credit to anyone who can. You are a brave soul.

Cinnamon and honey- I didn't mind the flavors at all. It was actually really good. But it gave me terrible heartburn and indigestion. I didn't notice anything positive about this either. I only tried this twice. But the heartburn was so bad, it's not worth it for me.

Bath detox- This is the most relaxing detox I have done. Only bad side effect was I felt really hot and light headed. Other than that, I only noticed it made my skin feel really smooth. I'll probably do these on days where I'm feeling pretty run down.

These are just a few of the natural detoxes I have tried. I'm trying to go all natural and with detoxes that are easy on my system. I'm just not ready for harsh detoxes.

Lastly, I have started to take detox pills. These make me feel absolutely horrible. I only take them because they are for yeast/fungal. And they're getting that junk out.

I got these from my naturopathy doctor. But you can find them online. I am on a regimen to ease my body into them. You're suppose to take 3 a day. But I'm going to slowly work up to that

1st week- One pill a day with breakfast
2nd week- Two pills a day. One with breakfast, one with dinner
3rd week- Three pills a day. One with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

I am not looking forward to the three pills a day. But I know I have to suffer a little to start to feel better. I will update on these probably once a week. 

Let me know of any detoxes that you have tried and what the outcome was?!

Cheers to health!
