Do you ever put off doing a cleanse because you don’t want to feel out of sorts?
Maybe you’ve been feeling that you need a good cleanse, but you are procrastinating because of some of the common side effects people complain of. Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Today I am talking all about how to deal with a healing crisis, which is when the toxins in the body get stirred up due to the cleanse and aren’t being eliminated fast enough. As a result you can feel like you are experiencing cold and flu-like symptoms.

I hope this video removes any fears you might have about feeling sick and inspires you to give cleansing a shot!

Do you cleanse regularly? How do you make sure you feel good when cleansing? Share your tips in the comments below!

Thanks to Paul (the organizer of an amazing raw food metup group), we are able to see a little of what Happy Oasis shared with us on Saturday.
