With our world growing increasingly toxic, the question is not if you should do a detox; its when. It's true our bodies are built to naturally eliminate toxins. The problem, however, is that the effects of modern life: pollution, poor dietary choices, contaminates in our food and water, stress and even a sedentary lifestyle will compromise the body's ability to effectively detox the way it supposed to. The tragic result of this toxic internal congestion is that we develop diseases, gain weight and lose our natural energy and vitality.
While its true our livers are constantly detoxing our bloodstreams, they are not necessarily coping as well as they could be. From pesticides and fertilizers in our food, to heavy metals in the skincare products we use and the over-eager medicine prescribing, our wonderful modern world is a bit of a minefield waiting to explode.
Here are a few signs you need a 'detox', even when you think you are healthy and can't figure out why you are:
This could be a sign your body is working too hard to get rid of the toxins you're pouring into it. If your answer is more coffee or something sweet, you're only making the problem worse.
The intestines get rid of a lot of toxins everyday. When that is compromised we store up all those toxins. Allowing them to negatively affect our bodies. This is related to consuming a lot of processed foods filled with chemicals, pesticides and preservatives.
Acne, rashes and skin problems may signal a toxic overload. The skin is our largest organ responsible for detoxification. Get out there and sweat!
*Muscle aches and pains.
Chronic inflammation can be influenced by the environmental toxins we come into contact each and every day. Use only natural skin care products that are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens and any other potentially toxic ingredients.
Bad breath is often related to digestive issues and can also mean your liver is struggling to get rid of the toxins.
