Headaches While Doing The Master Cleanse

by Raylen on July 22, 2007

Here’s a question about one of the more common master cleanse side effects – headaches.

I completed the Master Cleanse yesterday. I am so looking forward the the soup!

I had a headache that seemed to start in my right ear and go down my neck. I would come and go but I seemed to have it almost every night. It became very intense when I stood up from bed. I can actually still feel it now. Will it go away? Do you know what would cause this?

Other than the headache the Cleanse was wonderful. I lost about 12 pounds.

Thanks for all the information.


Headaches usually happen early in the cleanse, and for most people go away after 3 or 4 days. The severity of the headaches varies from person to person, but there are a few common factors that can cause them.

If you drink a lot of cafien you might experience headaches when you do the master cleanse because your body is going through a withdrawal of sorts.

If this is your first time doing a detox diet you’re likly to experience headaches. In the short time it takes to do the master cleanse your body will go through a massive internal cleaning. This is a good thing, but it can be uncomfortable because years of waste that’s been dormant inside your body is now being ushered out by your bodies cleansing mechanisms.

Stress can also lead to headaches. Like I mentioned above your body will be taxed by the master cleanse so try to not to push yourself too hard.
