DETOXIFICATION and POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS
By Dr. John Mory
What is detoxification ?
Detoxification is the term used to describe the
process your body goes through to get rid of
toxins. Detoxification symptoms - both
physical and mental - may appear when you
alter your lifestyle by starting something new,
such as changing your diet or exercising, or
by discontinuing a current habit, such as
eating chocolate or drinking coffee. These
symptoms include headache, skin eruptions
(rash), stomach ache, cough, diarrhea,
clogged sinus, and fever, as well
as feeling rundown and irritable. The
symptoms may be of short duration and
slight irritation, or they could last longer and
cause you considerable discomfort.
Because these symptoms are the same as
those that show up in certain illnesses,
changing your diet or lifestyle can result in
misunderstanding . . .
If I am doing something that is supposed to
be good for me, why do I have these
unpleasant symptoms ? Why do I feel worse,
and not better ?
Understanding this apparent contradiction is
perhaps the first, and most important, hurdle
you must get over when making a dietary or
If you consider this contradiction carefully,
however, it is easy to understand. Think of
how you might have experienced this on a
short-term basis. If you do not get regular
exercise and then play some softball with
your kids, the next day you might feel bad -
tired with sore muscles. This is your body
reacting to something that it is not used to
doing. You can see the same thing when
you stop a regular activity; if you are a soda
drinker and stop drinking soda
for a while, you may notice that you have less
energy and you may even have a headache.
When you change your diet or lifestyle, the
same thing happens; your body reacts to the
Why does this happen ?
As we live, toxins accumulate in our bodies.
Some of these are due to our diet and others
are due to the environment around us. Of
course, our lifestyle also fits in - if you smoke
or use alcohol you are accumulating even
more toxins. When you make a change in diet
or lifestyle, through stopping a bad habit or
eating better, your cells begin to eliminate the
toxic substances. Before finding the exit,
however, the toxins are released into the
bloodstream and are carried through the
This transportation and elimination may result
in headache, diarrhea, or constipation, and
often toxins are eliminated through the skin,
resulting in rashes or skin problems
(especially if you are prone to such problems).
You may also feel a lack of energy, especially
if you are eliminating meats from your diet.
(The protein found in meat is more stimulating
than that found in vegetables.) You may also
find that, with the absence of toxins, you
absorb substances more easily. Thus, the
sugar and caffeine in a soda might really set
In a nutshell, we could say that the body
always goes for quality, and when the food
coming in is of higher quality than the present
tissue, the body will discard the present tissue
because it wants to make room for tissue
created by the higher-quality food.
How severe are the symptoms and how
long do they last ?
How long the symptoms last and how severe
they are depend on your lifestyle before
making a change and how quickly you make
a change. If you have a diet heavy in red
meats, for example, and become a vegetarian
overnight, you might have severe symptoms
for a time. If your lifestyle changes are
gradual, the symptoms could be less severe.
The duration of the symptoms might not be
linear; there is a greater chance that they will
come in cycles.
At first you may feel great and then
experience some detoxification symptoms.
After the initial toxins are flooded out, you
will feel good again, if not better. However, as
the body "goes deeper" and finds more toxins
to eliminate; the symptoms may reappear
again, and after more toxins are eliminated,
you will feel better yet. As things progress,
you will find that the period of symptoms is
shorter and the period of well- being greater.
What can I do during this period ?
The hardest thing for many people to do is
accept that they are not sick and realize that
the body is cleansing itself. Once you get
beyond this psychological barrier, the rest is
The most important thing to do can be
summed up in one word . . . Rest. Rest,
and let the body do what it needs to. If you
have the luxury of staying home, do so! If not,
cut back on social engagements and perhaps
even cut back on any exercise you are
getting. Give your body as much energy as
possible to do its jobs.
Eat light foods that are easy to digest -
consume fruits and vegetables and drink
plenty of water.
