The word “detox” is a buzzword in the health and wellness world. People discover strange programs that require them to drink odd concoctions that claim to completely detox specific organs. Those programs can be hard to maintain, yet people try to complete them. With New Year’s resolutions in full swing, we would like to bring up the topic of cleansing and how you can identify the signs that your body needs to cleanse.
The New Year is the perfect time to cleanse because you just put your body through holiday stress, excessive eating, and heavy drinking. Your liver, kidneys, immune system, and everything else in the body have been overworked. To avoid toxin accumulation and the development of health complications, it is best to hit the reset button and rid the body of any impurities. It’s time for a tune-up.
Note: You can’t get rid of junk if you keep supplying the body with more junk!
The body has the ability to naturally cleanse itself, but it cannot do this efficiently if there is an overabundance of toxins in the system. When there are too many toxins in the body, organs and systems begin to function poorly. It is quite common for people to misinterpret the signals that their bodies give them when they are in need of cleansing. Perhaps you brush off a skin irritation or ignore frequent headaches. Look at the list below and if you have experienced several of these symptoms over the past few months, it’s time to take part in the Full Body Cleanse.
A common sign of too many toxins in the body is skin complications, including dry skin, rashes, itchy patches, or breakouts. Skin issues can chisel away at your self-esteem, which is why it is best to address the problem, as opposed to applying chemical creams that only mask the issue. Toxins in the blood commonly cause skin issues, but gastrointestinal troubles or poor immune function can be the culprits as well.
If you have a toxic liver, you may experience frequent headaches. The pain is commonly around the temples or back of your head, and they are often accompanied by stomach pain or nausea, differentiating them from regular tension headaches. Too many toxins in the body prevent the liver from sending energy to the brain, ultimately aggravating the central nervous system and causing us pain as a result.
Feeling tired after consecutive busy days or late nights can induce fatigue, but consistently feeling unmotivated or requiring caffeine to move is a completely separate issue. This may be caused by insufficient sleep, or the quality of your sleep may be poor. Constant fatigue can indicate that there are too many chemicals or toxins in the body, and the body is working overtime to eliminate them. This is typically the number one symptom people ignore, but they put up with it anyway. Cleanse for better energy!
Abdominal Bloating or Gas
If toxins fail to leave the body, they can remain in the intestines or stomach and cause cramps, pains, gas, or bloating. Bloating or gas is an indication that the microbiome has more bad bacteria than beneficial bacteria. An excess amount of bad bacteria can also lead to slowed digestion, slowed metabolism, and inflammation.
Bad Breath or Yellowish Coating on Your Tongue
One or both of these symptoms means that you have too many toxins in your system. While bacteria live inside the mouth, there aren’t too many strains that cause yellowish or white matter to appear on the tongue. This coating can contribute to bad breath and it is commonly linked to poor intestinal health or a poorly functioning liver. People who eat a lot of sugar, processed foods, unhealthy fats, and alcohol can cause these bacteria to build up.
Pay attention to your body because it tells you a lot about your health. You just have know the signs and take action when necessary.
