The first two days are likely to be the most challenging as toxins start to shift and your body adapts. You may experience symptoms such as headaches (particularly if your body is experiencing caffeine withdrawal) aching muscles, flu-like symptoms and sweating. These are actually good signs that indicate your body is beginning the cleansing process and trying to heal. Preparing ahead of the cleanse by reducing or eliminating caffeine, and eating a lighter vegan diet can help to reduce these symptoms.
By day 3 the detox symptoms should start to diminish, and you will start to feel lighter, more energised and clearer in mind and body. The deeper cleansing process of autolysis starts. This is when your body starts to selectively decompose cells which are diseased, damaged, aged or dead and starts to produce new cells, which are full of energy, producing long lasting benefits.
