When I DETOX, Why Do I Feel Worse Before I Feel Better?

For Me, I Was Loaded with Heavy Metals…

I will never forget when I was starting down my path of healing my body, I was told I had high Levels of Mercury, Lead and Aluminum in my body — no wonder I felt horrible! So I started the detox process, and then was retested… My levels of Metals showed up worse on the second test!  I felt horrible for the first few days…Then when I finished the Detox process and rid myself of the metals, my levels were within normal range — WHEW!

When We DETOX, Why Do We Feel Worse Before We Feel Better?

Most people may start a “cleanse” or some sort of “clean eating program,” and within two days, they feel horrible and quit. Then they say, “I felt horrible…I must not be needing a detox…”

When you start any Detox protocol, you may feel worse before you feel better.

Why? Use my heavy metals as an example — Imagine all of these toxins finding a comfy home in your tissues of your body — living there for years and years. Then all of the sudden you disrupt their “sleep,” stir them up, get them moving into the bloodstream, and out the body. Well, those toxins are now in your bloodstream making you feel sick and tired and nauseous and HANGRY. But this is the only way to get the  JUNK out of the body!

When people call me and say, “I feel worse!” I tell them that is a good sign. When you eliminate inflammatory, processed foods and stop feeding your body garbage and chemicals, your body goes through withdrawal just like with drugs or alcohol. The good news is that it only lasts a few days, and it can be minimized with my Detox Protocol.

When you eliminate these addictive and toxic foods and drinks, you may initially have uncomfortable Detox Symptoms like feeling achy, flu-like feelings, irritability, nausea, headaches, brain fog, constipation, hunger, itchy skin, fatigue, and sleep difficulties.  All of that is normal… But, how do we make it easier?

My Quick, Gentle Detox Protocol

The beauty of my formula is it’s gentle, quick and helps bypass the yucky feeling you get from most detoxification programs. And, above all, you aren’t stuck on a liquid diet making you lightheaded and hungry!

  • Silver detoxes the blood, while killing off the viruses, bacteria, fungus, parasites, and increases oxygen in the system.
  • Accelerated Cellular Detox® Powder soaks up the Toxins released from the Silver, and carries it gently through the intestinal tract, easing the burden on the liver and kidneys, while also helping with Bloat, and Regularity.
  • Accelerated Keto®:  The key to making it comfortable with no feelings of nausea or “detox flu”.

The Accelerated Keto® eliminates the bonking and flu-like symptom by switching to a brand new energy system in the body — YOUR FAT Becomes the FUEL. Therefore, while your body is detoxing, your energy level is higher than ever before, inflammation throughout the body is reduced.
