I have been doing the detox since the first of November and I have been really pleased with the results. I have done many detox programs over the years. Some are long, others are painful while others might work effectively.

A regular detox program is important to the natural well being. It is very difficult to stay healthy if you don’t detox on a regular basis. I usually go through at least a detox four or five times each year.

This year I have done the Carlos Castaneda cleanse (64 ounces of distilled water, juice of 6 lemons, 1 cup of Grade B Maple Syrup and 10 teaspoons of Cayenne Pepper) about six times.

I have eaten no solid food for 5 to 10 days and used protein drinks to sustain. That is probably one of the most difficult detox methods I do.

But I find I always feel much healthier and more clear headed after doing the detoxes. So I never mind.

Some of the side effects can be headaches (especially the last detox i did), nausea, a lack of energy and extreme tiredness. But once I have gone through the process I always feel much better.
