Detoxification is the 5th lesson for your health (you can look at a summary of 7 lessons of your healthy here) but doesn’t mean that it is less critical. Detoxification of body needs further explanation and attention to everyone who has some health problems or wants to avoid specific symptoms and more severe complications.
Nowadays scientists turn more and more attention to detoxification process and its importance. Even couple of years ago wasn’t on the top priority risk when talking about different health aspects. To understand detoxification, you have to look at the signs of toxicity in the body. For various people, the symptoms can vary.
Toxicity symptoms to consider detoxification:
- Muscle aches
- Joint pain
- Foul-smelling stools
- Sleep problems
- Sinus congestion
- Craving for food
- Problems with skin
- Concentration problems
- Rashes, psoriasis, acne, etc. skin problems
- Dark, puffy circles under the eyes
- Bad breath
According to WebMD dictionary, detoxification meaning is “purge the body of chemicals and toxins — and, for some, are a means to lose weight.” The most significant problems with detoxification cause the illness root. In many cases, people are having some issues with the gut that is one of the primary systems of the body that a person needs to have in good health and function. It is also important to understand that every person gets exposed to different sources that toxify the body. When the system has an overload of various stressors (work, sleep problems, etc.), inflammation (from mercury, heavy metals, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.), and other harmful aspects, people have symptoms mentioned before, or they get sick. Even some medications can be toxic because a person receives overloaded with them. I suggest going on a detoxification diet only with the help of professional.
I as a Board certified nutrition specialist have many experiences when people have hidden food allergies and other issues that are so hidden that they don’t know about and usually come with complaining about their weight problems or some entirely different matters. For some natural detoxification with drinking enough of pure water, using simple fruit and veggie detox can be sufficient to fix gut and other problems, but others might need a more complex problem solving and even supplements for the gut, detoxification support, etc. Not all things that you can buy at the store like body detox drinks are the best for any severe treatment because to take back health is something that needs personal medical advice. Some might require detoxification of the liver, the whole body, additional exercise and other changes. Up next you can read about mind and body connection.
Take care of your health,
