Isagenix is a cleansing program designed to help individuals lose weight over a 9-day period. Many people have done this over the years and lost several pounds or more during that period, while others have experienced no weight loss. As with any diet plan or program, there are always some side effects associated with using the program.
Headaches are one of the most common side effects associated with Isagenix. Both those who lost weight on the program and those who did not have reported feeling pain in their temples. These headaches ranged from minor, dull pains to intense, blinding headaches. In a large number of cases, the headaches disappeared after a few days on the plan as the body adjusted to the program. There are only a small number of people who had to stop the plan.
Those who have completed the Isagenix program sometimes complained about feeling nervous or having a "shaky" feeling. Experts believe that this is the result of the body not getting enough food while on the program. Those who use the shakes and snacks on the program experience this less and claim that if they ate a snack, the shaky feeling disappeared. Those who have this feeling are encouraged to eat something to raise their blood sugar.
A very small number of people on the Isagenix program experienced vomiting, especially when using the shakes as part of the program. The vomiting is sometimes the result of the stomach and taste buds reacting with the ingredients used. Many of the people who claimed to experience vomiting said that the side effect disappeared after a few days. This is one of the very rare side effects associated with using Isagenix, and it is reported in only a small number of cases.
Dizziness is an often reported side effect associated with Isagenix. Like the shaking, this is often connected to the lack of food. It typically appears towards the end of the cleanse because the body needs more food to survive. In other cases, it may begin to appear earlier as the body tries to adjust to the sudden reduction in calories. The user usually feels dizzy when standing suddenly or making quick movements.
An accelerated heart rate or increase in heart beats is sometimes experienced when using Isagenix. This can sometimes cause other side effects such as shakiness or dizziness, and in some cases, cause the headache. Once they stopped using the plan, their heart rate returned to normal. On the opposite side of the spectrum, there are some users who have reported that their heart beat actually decreased while on the program, and stayed lower even once they stopped.
