It’s Only Temporary
Usually the reactions are mild enough where you can go on with your day just fine. If stronger reactions occur, it is generally from those whose bodies have large amounts of medicine or other toxins.
If the symptoms are too uncomfortable, you can cut back on the amount of concentrated vegetable juices and BarleyMax. Don’t cut them out, just back them off a bit.
Also, if find yourself detoxing too quickly, just add a little extra cooked food back to your diet.
