It’s Time to Cleanse
You’ve had a tough weekend and you can feel it in your body. Puffy and sluggish with dark circles under your eyes. This isn’t new… you’ve actually been feeling quite off-track these days, allowing yourself to eat and drink things that are normally on your “no” list.
Now, you’ve heard that cleansing or detoxing can help. But does it really? If you try it, does it mean you’ll be stuck near the toilettes for the weekend or will you need to take gross-tasting supplements? Let’s explore.
Why do we need to detox?
Detoxing is something that your body does naturally. If it didn’t, we’d be in much worse health! Basically, detoxification is the purification of the blood and the removal of toxins from the body. As we journey through life, we accumulate toxins from our environment: in the water we drink, the food we eat, the air we breath, and the products we put on your skin. These toxins must be disarmed and removed by the body to maintain equilibrium and health.
What are some signs that you may need to detox?
When toxins enter or are created in our body faster than we can eliminate them, our “toxic load” increases. Once this happens, you may find yourself experiencing the following symptoms:
- Acne or other skin conditions
- Weight gain
- Joint pain
- Mood swings and/or panic attacks
- Fertility problems
- Memory loss
- Digestive and inflammatory disorders
- Immune deficiencies, cancer
By supporting your body’s detoxifying organs, you can help to regain normal function of your organs, clear congestion and disease potential and improve your energy. Detoxifying also rejuvenates your tissues and prevents degeneration.
