How Toxic Is Your Body?
We are bombarded daily by chemicals and pollutants, in our homes, work places, and every day surroundings.
We absorb these toxins through our skin, the food we eat, and the air we breathe. When your body is unable to flush acidic toxins out of your cells, your immune system becomes compromised, making you more susceptible to illnesses, aches and pains.
Some diseases or conditions that may be due to toxic overload
How can you tell if your body is full of toxins? Here are seven signs that you should consider.
Even though you may be sleeping well, you struggle just to get through the day. Low energy levels could be due to an overworked immune system.
Stubborn weight gain
As we age it can be difficult to lose weight, however, if you are exercising daily and cutting calories, and still putting on the pounds, your problem may be hormonal. Your hormone functions can be greatly affected by the toxic build up in your body from processed foods, pesticides, cosmetics, medications, cleaning supplies, and environmental pollutants.
If you brush your teeth on a regular basis, and gargle with mouthwash, but it doesn't seem to help, it could be due to digestive or liver problems.
For optimal health we need to have bowel eliminations at least twice a day. When fecal waste remains in the body for too long, toxins are reabsorbed and can cause headaches, fatigue, and joint pain.
Sensitivity to Fragrances
Fragrances are in everything from dish soap to cosmetics. Many of these products contain harmful chemicals that can affect your body. A sign of toxic overload is a an upset stomach or sudden headache after exposure to certain fragrances.
Muscle and Joint Pain
It is natural to have muscles spasms the following day after a hard workout at the gym. However, if you are having muscle and joint pain on a regular basis, this can be due to toxic buildup in your joints and muscles.
Acne, rashes, boils, puffy eyes, eczema and psoriasis outbreaks are all signs that you are on toxic overload.
