The wild rose detox is a great way to clean your body and get a “fresh start”. Its purpose is to rid your body of toxins and waste accumulated in day-to-day life. Mainly in the liver, small intestine, and large intestine (bowel). Wild rose detox side effects do exist, but they’re mostly negligible unless your body is especially sensitive.
Unlike other detoxes, with wild rose, you can eat as much as you want, albeit only from certain foods, which we’ll mention at the end of this article. They recommend detoxing 2-4 times a year, and the process is pretty straightforward.
There are four compounds, 3 in pill form and 1 in liquid form. You take two pills from each compound (total six pills) and 40 drops of the liquid twice a day. So that comes out to 12 pills and 80 drops every day. If you don’t like pills, take note!
Within 2-3 days, you’ll start feeling the effects, so you better have a toilet next by at all times as bowel movement will be much more active than usual. As we said, you might experience some side effects with the wild rose detox, so let’s go over them.
Wild Rose Detox Side Effects
Headaches: Many people report experiencing headaches after 3-4 days, which could be explained by cutting off sugar. As we mentioned, you can eat as much as you want, but only certain foods and sugar isn’t one of them.
If you didn’t know, sugar is highly addictive to the body. Some say it is as addictive as cocaine. That means that as your body gets rid of all the waste, including sugar, and you don’t provide any new sugar, you might suffer withdrawl. Especially if your body is used to a high amount of sugar level.
Fogginess: Due to the sudden change in diet and the cleansing of everything your body runs on, you’ll likely experience a shift in mood and focus. That shift is likely to be expressed in fogginess, as if you haven’t slept enough, and grogginess.
Low Energy: Following the previous point about fogginess, wild herb detox side effects also include low energy, for the same reasons. As your body suddenly removes everything and gets a completely different diet, it will need to adapt. While it’s adapting to producing energy from the new diet, you might experience low energy.
Low Energy: Following the previous point about fogginess, wild herb detox side effects also include low energy, for the same reasons. As your body suddenly removes everything and gets a completely different diet, it will need to adapt. While it’s adapting to producing energy from the new diet and coping with the rapid loss of contents, you might experience low energy.
Loss Of Sleep: We cannot explain why this side effect happens definitively, but some users report struggling to sleep. It might be because of the change in diet or the bowel movement being too active for the body to drift into sleep.
Wild Rose Detox While Pregnant
Cleanses are incredibly tough on your body in the first place as you aren’t precisely giving your body the fuel that it is used to. Thus, taking it while pregnant, when the body needs even more energy to support your baby, is not a good idea.
Plus, some herbs in the wild rose detox could have side effects that are specifically bad for the embryo. Both these reasons make it a bad idea to go through a wild rose detox while pregnant.
Wild Rose Detox Not Pooping
As we mentioned above, it takes 2-3 days on average until you start feeling the urge to purge. If after 4-5 days you’re still not seeing any difference, you might’ve stumbled upon a bad batch. You should contact the company and try again with a new one.
But, if after 4-5 days you lose the urge, and you’re now going to the toilet less than usual, or not at all, try the following steps:
- Adjust your diet
- Drink more water
- Stop altogether if there’s no improvement.
Your body might not be reacting well to one of the herbs or the new diet.
Wild Rose Detox Dizzy
If you’re experiencing anything from mild to extreme dizziness, it is not a normal wild rose detox side effect. It might happen because you’re either not drinking enough or not eating correctly.
As we mentioned, the body goes through a certain shock losing all its contents and being provided a completely new diet. That results in a change of energy and fogginess. But if you don’t eat and drink correctly, these side effects can worsen, resulting in dizziness.
Average Weight Loss On Wild Rose Cleanse
Weight loss does not fit into wild rose detox side effects, per se. As some people are actively looking for this, but for some people, a sudden weight loss could be unnecessary and even dangerous.
So, while not every user reports a definitive weight loss, many report an average of 5-15 pounds (2-7 kilos) weight loss after the 12 day period is over. If you’re looking for a helping hand in your weight loss journey, this could be it!
Conclusion & Foods
As we’ve mentioned, there are only certain types of food you’re allowed to eat while detoxing. These will be mentioned in the package of the product, but if you’re contemplating a purchase, here’s what they are.
- Beef, fish, pork, lamb, veal, tofu
- Coffee and herbal teas
- Whole grains and nuts
- Lentils, soy beans and beans
- Almond milk (without sugar)
- Fruits – no tropicals i.e. bananas, mangos, grapes.
- All vegetables
- All oils except for peanut oil
- Lemon and lime
- Tahini, sesame seeds
So, the menu is pretty big. If you get used to it a month before starting, this detox will be a piece of cake for you (although you can’t eat a piece of cake). Yes, the wild rose detox does have side effects, but they’re pretty light for the most part. And you might not even experience them at all! We hope we helped you reach a decision. Good luck!
