View Full Version : What are the different stages of detox.
I try and separate my R.A. symptoms from detox and I cannot, as I don't know what to expect from a detox. Can anyone tell me what to expect and for how long? I'd appreciate it. I have a LOT of detoxing to do.:eek:

Everyone is different.
For me, headaches, rashes, bloodshot eyes, low energy.
And bloating. Mine started around day three and were gone by day 5.
So hold on, almost over. ( :
There is a thread in the archives that covers so much, let me see if I can find it... be right back...

In addition to the above, my detox has included major leg cramping and some sleepless nights.

depends on just what you're de-toxxing i guess.
how varies so much and to a large part time & degree too.
i find the "headache/ sore throat/ crabbiness/ everything is accentuated to the worse" way of detoxing to be the most usual
i have on occasion had some awful emotional detox periods too.
as sad and depressed as i can be without doing myself in depression.
and i am a very happy person otherwise.
hope you feel better

Hi, my detox symptoms seem to be very similar to all the above & also my menstrual cycle goes haywire too. I get vivid mad dreams too.

When you say detox what do you mean??fasting?
Iv been eating 100% raw for 6 days and the only thing iv had is a rash, but that is now clearing up, i took it was my toxins coming out?

...And when i think about it, iv been sleep an extra 3/4 hours!!
Im very tired in the day, saying that i am still on medication that i hope to come off soon
Thanks Beppa, I looked in the thread and all the symptoms of detox that I read are what I am feeling. I feel them with R.A. anyway, but now they are worse. I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE. :o i take a natural supplement called CetylPure which kills off the cells which attack my body and it is the best thing that has helped me keep the disease down. But it is derived from an animal byproduct.:( :eek: I know. That is why I am trying to go raw. I heard that peoples symptoms of RA diminish, or are wiped out with a raw diet, but, as this disease has the potential of killing me and the doctors only give toxins to reduce the entire immune system, so leaving me vulnerable to infection, I take this. I wish there was a plant/mineral based supplement to take which will do the same thing. BUT I WANT TO TAKE NO ANIMAL PRODUCTS AT ALL. I have a huge guilt feeling because of Cetylpure. If anyone knows of a vegetable based 'Cetyl Myrostoleate', then please let me know. I think that all the dead cells in my body need detoxing. Perhaps this is why I feel so bad now.
One thing have noticed is spaceiness in my head, irritability, a deep, profound depression and a sorrow that could flood the whole world if I gave into the tears. I have acute dreams. and my body hurts more than ever.I also cannot concentrate very well. I too, am very tired and exhausted, like RA, but much more so. It is good to know that what I am suffering is most probably detox.
