Humans are exposed to pollution, unhealthy food and drink, toxins, and stress every day. This can take a huge toll on our physical bodies and overall health. We cannot avoid these harmful substances from food preservative ingredients, chemicals in the water, and toxic cleaning products. Even stress has been proven to stimulate the extensive release of adrenaline and cortisol, leading to eating disorders, increased blood pressure, and many other health conditions.
Detoxing is a great way to combat unwanted toxins by simultaneously cleansing and nourishing your body.
Here are five signs your body could use a good detox!
1) Digestive Problems
Experiencing digestive problems is the most obvious signal to improve your diet. The symptoms include diarrhea, bloating, gas and constipation. Detoxing will give your gut a break, allowing it to restore its natural digestion.
2) Chronic Migraines and Headaches
Many things can trigger migraines and headaches, including hormones, foods, preservatives, stress, dehydration, chemicals, environmental toxins, etc. Still, if you constantly reach for a pain-reliever, it may be time for a cleanse.
3) You Live in a City
People that live in cities are exposed to the highest amounts of pollution. Air pollution, aka smog, is a mixture of pollutants and harmful compounds that can contaminate indoor and outdoor surfaces and even settle on your skin. What’s worse is that we take these toxins into our bodies simply by breathing.
4) You’re Addicted to Sugar and Caffeine
If you have addictions to sugar, caffeine, or junk food, a detox can help eliminate or at least tame unhealthy cravings that can leave you feeling sick and tired. Processed foods can also be filled with artificial flavors, dyes, preservatives, and other chemicals that can cause inflammation.
5) Body Odor and Bad Breath
Since our body is always working to eliminate toxins, having an unpleasant body odor and bad breath signifies toxins have reached peak levels. So, instead of depending on your deodorant stick, it’s better to perform a detox to wash out the chemical build-up naturally.
