While some people equate a detox with a fast, the two aren’t synonymous. Unless you are fasting, you may need to eat more to relieve some of your symptoms. Remember, however, to stick with detoxing foods like fresh fruit, leafy green vegetables, and seeds. Cilantro, parsley, alfalfa, and a blue-green algae , chlorella, are three extremely powerful chemical and heavy metal chelators. Dark green vegetables and herbs alkalize and purify the blood, making it easier for the body to rid itself of wastes with less discomfort or “healing crisis”.

I stay away from all artificial sweeteners, but have recently started drinking an antioxidant drink that contains Stevia. I love the drink it tastes delicious and gives me extra energy while boosting my immune system. I have noticed since starting this I am having issues with numbness and tingling in my feet. I stopped drinking it for awhile and the numbness went away, I have recently started this again since its flu season and I don’t get the flu shot so I wanted to keep my immune system in check and feel this def helps, however the numbness and tingling has returned 🙁 .. I am going to have to stop it again! I see in this tread that other people have had this issue as well with Stevia.
