Not sure why you may need to detox?
Detoxing strengthens our immune system, flushes out toxins, brings the body back into balance and gives us a much needed energy boost to get through the winter months.
A healthy immune system begins in your gut. What you eat, how much water you drink and regular physical exercise to cleanse the body and sweat out toxins, including unwanted feelings and thoughts detoxing also the spirit is so important to our overall health.
Our bodies are amazing in their ability to adapt. Seamlessly regulating important functions from temperature to heart rate, and constantly working to repair, cleanse and rejuvenate. We often take for granted how the body naturally detoxifies itself from toxins that we encounter in daily life.
Where do these toxins come from?
air and water pollution, pesticides, radiation, etc…
sugar, alcohol, processed foods, medication, drugs, etc…
Metabolic reactions :
when our bodies start breaking down proteins, sugars, and fats, they naturally start producing toxic waste
Intestinal microbes :
the gastrointestinal tract is filled with yeast and bacteria which help with the body’s digestion of food, excess growth of bacteria in the intestinal tract then allows toxins to enter the bloodstream and results in various health conditions
Emotional toxins :
stress, fear or traumatizing events can affect both the nervous, digestive and hormonal systems, which then affect your body’s ability to detox.
When the body gets overloaded by toxins, and our detox organs— the liver, kidneys, lungs, gut, and skin, which we count on for maintaining our health, get out of balance. When this happens, we often experience symptoms that occur from the body trying to correct itself.
And because of our growing exposure to toxins and lifestyle habits, counterproductive to maintaining our health, it’s more important than ever to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us through the symptoms we’re experiencing.
When we take note of what’s going on with our bodies, we can take responsibility for acknowledging when it needs a little help detoxing, becoming active in our own wellness.
So what are the symptoms communicated by your body when it needs a little help bringing itself back into balance?
Here are 10 major signs you’re due for a detox ;
Fatigue is one of the biggest indicators the body is working overtime to correct itself. Being sleepy on occasion or after a long week is one thing, but feeling groggy after a regular night’s sleep, wanting to nap throughout the day, or having irregular sleeping patterns is a sign it’s time to clean things up inside.
Infrequent bowel movements
Constipation is dangerous because those toxins stay in your body for longer than intended and can be reabsorbed into circulation instead of exiting through the bowels.
Inability to lose weight
If your midsection is growing, despite clean eating and regular exercise, it is a sign that what is coming into your body has surpassed what your body can use and effectively move out.
When the liver is overloaded and the body isn’t eliminating its toxins through normal pathways like daily bowel movements, it will seek alternative means to rid itself of those harmful substances. One such alternative way is through the skin. As our largest organ, the skin provides a very useful way to eliminate toxins through sweating and less favorable ways like rashes and eczema. These skin conditions, as well as foul body odor, can all be signs your skin is picking up the detoxing slack for the rest of your body.
Allergies are no longer “seasonal” and happen often.
Your sinuses are an extension of your digestive system. So it would make sense that if you have poor gut health your immunity is going to be weak as well.
You aren’t as mentally sharp
If you lack the ability to focus or struggle to remember various details on a regular basis, you’re dealing with brain fog. A detox will help you flush out all of those toxins.
Your joints are always sore
On going inflammation does a number on your joints and muscles. If you aren’t pushing yourself at the gym but are constantly sore and achy you most likely have chronic inflammation that needs to be addressed.
You’re constantly stressed. Stress is a contributing factor to all types of health problems. Stress can act like a trigger for everything from depression to autoimmune conditions. A food based cleanse can be great to relieve physical symptoms of stress but detoxing from outside stimuli such as social media or toxic relationships as well can do wonders for your mental state.
Your diet includes coffee, alcohol, drugs, medication or cigarettes.
These substances are harmful to the body on a regular basis. Again, not only will a cleanse help the body to rid the harmful toxins caused by these substances, it can also act as a reset to healthier habits with them.
You have a sweet tooth/constant cravings, is a big sign that something is off. When processed foods are a staple in your diet it can put your blood sugar and leptin hormones on a roller-coaster ride which increases your cravings even more. When you detox you replace those junk foods with whole, clean food sources filled with hormone-balancing nutrients.
If you regularly experience one or more of these symptoms, it’s time to start paying attention to what your body is trying to say.
Taking note of the way you feel, you can start reclaiming your wellness, making proactive choices and lifestyle changes that promote your ongoing health.
