We live in a modern era where everything is different than before. It may have its advantages, advanced technology, healthcare, culture, telecommunications, travel methods and so on, but it also has its drawbacks.
One of the biggest challenges in this modern day and age is the immense toxic exposure we’re exposed to everywhere we go. From the environment we live in, to the cosmetics we use and the food we eat, toxins are everywhere.
The Body’s Detox Systems
The body has its own mechanisms for toxins elimination, like sweating, urination and defecation but sometimes our bodies are overloaded with toxins that these mechanisms are not enough. In such cases we need to help our body to detox and flush out all those toxins before it becomes flooded and our functions become impaired. But how can you know if your body needs help detoxing? Well, you need to carefully monitor and detect if there are some changes that might be a result of toxic overload. Here are the top warning signs you need to look out for:
If you have a high level of toxins in your body they can affect the levels of melatonin and this in turn can lead to sleep problems and insomnia.
Toxic overload can lead to disrupted levels of glucose and cholesterol in your blood, and this can lead to fat accumulation around the waist.
If you have too much toxins in your body can start overheating.
If you’re exposed to toxins and inhale them you can develop a sinus congestion.
If your body is full of toxins your bile will become over-concentrated bile, which can lead to clogged gallbladder and increased risk of gallstones.
Skin problems like acne, rashes, dry skin, and so on could be signs of toxins and waste accumulation.
White or yellowish tongue
If everything is in order your tongue should be is bright pink or pale red in color. But if you start noticing it’s whitish or yellowish it may be a sign of toxins accumulation.
Toxic overload can result in constant and chronic headaches.
