I began a detox last week on the 1st of February. I cut out all meat, dairy, wheat, sugar, caffeine, alcohol etc and started on P+B shakes. For the first day or 2 I had a headache which was due to lack of caffeine (I never realised I drank that much tea!) and from then on I felt great. On Wednesday (8th February), my sinuses began streaming and although not running as much now (it's Friday 10th today), I'm still blowing my nose a lot and feel congested. My body hurt as if I had the flu on Wednesday (although it feels fine now) - I was almost in tears with the pain and I tend to have a fairly high pain threshold.
What is was wondering was is this likely to be due to the detox or have I caught some flu bug? I know that some people go through a stage of feeling bad during detox, but I thought I would be over all the symptoms now and bursting with energy! Although not great before, I didn't think my diet was so bad that I would be feeling this bad. I've done detoxes before, but have never felt anything like this. However, I've had so much vitamin C since the detox began I thought I would be invincible to colds and flu!
