Toxins from internal sources and external sources are accumulated in our bodies. Some of the external sources of toxins include air pollution, cigarette smoke, pesticides, makeup and detergents. Internal toxins come from consuming processed foods, consuming an excessive amount of sugar and salt, a buildup of waste in the body as a result of organ overloaded, excess prescription medications, stress and negative thinking.
Our bodies are “self-cleaning” – meaning our bodies have a built in function to detoxify itself through eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidney, lung, lymph and skin. However, because of the tremendous amount of internal and external toxins we are exposed to, our bodies are not able to keep up in the “self-cleaning” process. Cleansing your colon, kidney, liver and spleen by committing to a period of detoxification will take some of the burden off of body’s self-cleaning mechanism and promote and help you maintain good health.
You are suffering from toxic overload and it is time to detox if you are experiencing two or more of the following symptoms:
- Feeling tired and fatigue
- Brain fog
- Weight gain or weight loss
- Irregular sleep (too little or too much)
- Joint pain
- Mood swings
- Constipation, diarrhea, bloating
- Chronic bad breath
- A white coating on your tongue
- Joint Pain
- Skin rashes and outbreaks
- Anxiety and Depression
These symptoms are simply ways that your body uses to communicate to you that it nees your help in removing an overload of toxins in your system. However, before making the decision to begin a cleansing or detox program we recommend that you get the advice of your doctor or alternative medicine practitioner.
