We are living in a polluted world. There are toxic agents everywhere around us, in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the electronics we use.
The stress caused by living in this modern society creates toxic free radicals in the inside of our bodies. That is why healthy lifestyle and a healthy diet are mandatory! Our bodies have developed mechanisms to fight the toxic overload through urination, defecation and sweating but still, we need to ‘lend a hand’ from time to time.
The following 9 signs might indicate that your body has accumulated an excessive amount of toxins and is in a need of a detoxification:
- Low energy levels
Are you constantly feeling exhausted or low on energy? This is your body telling you that it needs detoxification. The best time of day for a detox is the morning and it can help you flush out the toxins that are preventing you from feeling energetic.
If you are experiencing constant headaches with no apparent reason, you need to perform a full body detoxification and avoid using pain killers in order to relieve the headaches.
- Gallbladder problems
If there are excessive amounts of toxins accumulated in your body, the bile secreted from the liver might be too concentrated and clog the gallbladder. It will significantly increase the risk of gallstones.
- Sinus congestion
Inhaling dangerous chemicals and toxins may lead to congested sinuses.
The increased concentration of toxins accumulated in our body can make the heart work harder and cause “overheating”. This will raise the body temperature and the body will try to get rid of the toxins by sweating. When the toxins are pushed through the skin pores and leave the body, it will restore the overall wellbeing.
- Yellow or white tongue
If you notice a yellow or white film forming on your tongue, it means you are in a need of a detox. Harmful toxins also cause bad breath. When the tongue turns back to its original bright pink/pale red color, it means that the detoxification process is completed and the system is cleansed.
- Belly fat
The accumulation of fat is not always a sign of toxic effect but if it’s accompanied by an inability to control glucose or cholesterol levels, try a detoxification diet to restore order.
- Skin issues
Acne appearance, skin rashes or dry skin can be some of the symptoms of a toxic buildup. Instead of resorting to expensive skin care products, go for a full body detoxification. Always try to use a natural over a chemical solution.
Melatonin secretion can be seriously impeded by a toxic environment. The lack of this hormone that helps us fall asleep may cause insomnia and that should be the only warning you will need. Perform a body cleanse in order to solve these issues.
Some of the best detoxification methods include:
- Natural detoxification juice or meal in the morning
- Lymphatic massage
- Jumping on mini-trampoline
- Dry skin brushing
- Regular consumption of natural detox juices and smoothies
