  • Drink lots of water. Have a little bit of caffeine. Take a magnesium supplement. Ibuprofen may help.

  • What are you detoxing from?

  • taking something for them is kind of counter productive of the whole detox process ;) don't do that.
    ugh! I don't know where my natural detox book is right now or I'd look up the home remedies... I know chamomile tea is one, warm bath, deep breathing, and if all else fails, sleep!

  • Sorry caffeine, sugar, fat, sodas all the unhealthy eating.

  • Withdraw from one at a time not all at once.

  • I agree with ADMCKENZIE on this. Stop one bad habit at a time. If you do them all at once. You might not be able to keep it up.

  • I'd say ride it out.. maybe go exercise or find something to keep your mind off the withdrawl.. good luck :)

  • have you thought of acupuncture? it's supposed to be great for withdrawl symptoms. Can't speak on that aspect personally, but I can say that there have been times when I had a splitting headache waiting for the acupuncturist and it just melted away as I got my treatment.
    Note: the needles that are used in acupuncture are not the same as sewing needles or needles used for a shot- I usually can't even feel them going in.

  • It's the caffiene causing the withdrawl headaches...ride it out.

  • are you detoxing by just dropping those items, or are you following a detox plan? either way, i suppose you should ride it out. caffeine withdraw often comes with a headache.
    Good Luck!
