Why is detoxification so important? Even if you eat healthy food and you drink alkaline water, you can’t avoid breathing the polluted air in the environment, the emissions given off by vehicles and the toxins from the deodorants, household cleaners, and other commercial products. Therefore, it is important to detoxify your body from all chemicals that simply are inevitable.
But, besides the toxins from the environment, the free radicals formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules, are toxic and extremely dangerous. These toxic byproducts of oxygen metabolism cause significant damage to living cells and tissues and are linked to diseases including cancer.
The human body has effective systems, such as sweating, urination or defecation, which is responsible for expelling the toxins. However, over time, toxins and waste start to accumulate and your organism needs complete cleansing.
When the body is overloaded, it will start sending warning signs that indicate that you need detoxification. Therefore, if you experience any of these 9 symptoms, it is an indication that you need a detox cleanse.
- White or Yellow Tongue
The tongue should be bright pink or pale red, so if you notice an excess of yellow or white film on your tongue, it is clear indication that your body is detoxing itself through the tongue and breath. In such case, you need a detox.
- Gallbladder Issues
Gallbladder issues or more precisely pain after eating any fats is an indication that your gallbladder is overloaded and you need cleansing.
Namely, the liver releases bile into the gallbladder and when the body is overloaded with toxins, the bile can become too concentrated. Ultimately, this might clog your gallbladder and this actually will increase the risk of gallstones.
- Congested Sinuses
Doctors say that patients whose organism is overloaded with toxins often suffer from congested sinuses. This particularly is common in people who regularly inhale high amounts of toxic chemicals in the home or at work.
If you experience headaches too often without any obvious reason, it might be an indication that your body is loaded with toxins. Therefore, if you take pills too often, it is advisable to try some detox program and solve the problem in a completely natural way.
- Skin Issues
Extremely dry and itchy skin, itchy rashes and or acne are skin issues that might be warning signs that your body needs detoxification.
The creams and lotions might temporarily solve the skin issues, but the real problem is an accumulation of toxins in your organism.
- Belly Fat
Despite the fact that not all types of belly fat are an indication that your body needs detox, you definitely should pay closer attention to this. It is advisable to visit a doctor and check your glucose and cholesterol levels.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland and the body naturally releases this hormone when it is time to sleep. If the body is overloaded with toxins, the harmful toxins might affect the amount of melatonin and that might cause insomnia or restless sleep. Experts explain that detox can restore the body’s natural sleep/ wake cycle.
Regular hot flashes that are not caused by menopause might appear as a result of toxic build-up. When the body is overloaded with toxins, your heart is forced to work overtime which will result in “overheating”.
- Lack of Energy
If you feel exhausted and you lack energy and if you feel constant fatigue. If you feel tired even after a good night sleep and you cannot make it through the day, it definitely is time to detox your body.
There are many different ways to detoxify your body, so you can try the method that works best for you:
- Lymphatic massage
