Cleanses are different for every person and each time that you conduct a cleanse/detox your body may react differently.
Occasionally, I personally have a tough time during the first four days of a cleanse. However, the last cleanse I did, I performed heavy physical labor at the ranch for five days in intense heat and I worked out every day for hour. Sure, I felt a little weak, but I was able to continue working while functioning suprisingly well.
I personally lost 14 pounds in those five days and my teenage son lost 11 pounds. After the fast he said to me "Now I get it" and he couldn't wait to see his older brother to show off his new lean body. Of course his brother said, "I'm doing a fast at the next retreat."
Most of the time for me, its not that easy to cleanse/detox. In the past, some of my clients and I have personally experienced the following symptoms or side effects:
Fever, headaches, random body aches, fatigue, skin eruptions (rash), emotional irritability (mood swings), gas, temporary constipation or diarrhea, temporary loss of menstruation or onset of menustration, vomiting, nausea, rapid heart rate, hot and cold flashes (cold and hot sweats), and possible light-headedness or sleepiness.
If you experience these side effects you can transition into another program that you feel more comfortable with. Sometimes these side effects are only temporary. It's best to consult your physician.
At the end of the juice cleanse some people feel so good that they are euphoric! In many cases, their eyes get bright, their skin tends to clear up, their stomach is flat and their faces look lean and healthy!
Remember, at some point people start saying things like, "You look great!" One of the things I personally like about a cleanse is that my muscles are no longer sore. I workout about every day with either weights, cardio or just working on the ranch doing manual labor. I personally know its time for me to do a cleanse when I begin to get sore after working out or working hard labor.
It is really is a cool thing to wake up in the morning and not feel any pain or soreness in my body after a tough workout the day before.....And, to wake up with an exceptional clear head.
Since menstruation is a form of cleansing, the detox retreat can offset regular cycles. It is usually a good idea for women to come prepared for this, "just in case", if applicable.
Pregnant or nursing women are NOT allowed on the detox retreat since intense fasting is not recommended for expectant or nursing mothers.
If you are coming off of caffeine pr sugar, please remember that you may experience some withdrawal symptoms like headache and nausea. This usually clears up quickly as detox is the fastest way to get something out of your body.
Cleansing retreats & detox retreats are a centuries old practice. I did not develop this idea of a fasting retreat. However, I did modify the program based on my years of experiences with raw foods and dieting, fasting and cleansing programs. I can tell you that most people experience more joy than they have in years by the end of the cleanse. Juice Fasting is a natural "anti-depressant" in my opinion. Cleanses are usually more powerful because of the group dynamic. You will be amazed at what you can accomplish on your fitness goals through hard work and determination!
Our job is to guide you through your cleansing program and juice fasting program to give you the support and tools you need to succeed. Your job is to have an open mind and follow the program during your stay at the Detox Oasis fasting retreat and fitness retreat.
At Detox Oasis, you can return home without unwanted pounds and excess body fat. Bury the waste and get rid of the toxins so you can start living a healthier lifestyle. And, remember this: Negative thoughts are toxic so we ask that you please don't bring them with you!
