Signs that Your Body Doesn’t Eliminate Toxins Well
Even when we have healthy habits, we may feel listless or without enough energy. This may be due to the fact that your body doesn’t eliminate toxins properly.
In the following article we’ll tell you about the signs you must listen to that are a consequence of something not being right with your body.
Signs that you have a problem eliminating toxins
Headaches, irritability, and indigestion can be isolated situations caused by something else in particular.
However, when they’re the norm and not the exception, perhaps you should pay more attention, because they could be a sign that your body is not eliminating toxins well.
Among the main signs that your toxin elimination system isn’t working correctly you might find:
1. Constant fatigue
It doesn’t matter how many hours you sleep a day because you’re always sleepy or you just don’t have enough energy.
When your body is working at full speed to eliminate toxins, it’s normal for you to feel tired.
If you drink coffee or eat chocolate to deal with this problem, you’ll only make the situation worse. Also, bear in mind that chronic fatigue may be the result of a hormone imbalance that’s damaging your immune system.
When something doesn’t work its way well through your stomach and intestines, your body can’t eliminate toxins through stool.
Chronic constipation is a sign of a toxin imbalance. Even if you’ve upped your fiber intake or if you’ve changed your diet and haven’t noticed any difference, it could be because you need a deep colon cleanse.
Don’t forget that your digestive system has been accumulating waste of which not all is excreted. Try to eat more raw fruit and vegetable to help the process.
The causes of migraines are varied. However, pay attention if they happen several times a week.
If you can’t determine why you have a headache (i.e. you haven’t had a stressful day, or been in the sun, had insomnia, etc.) then you should consider the option of detoxifying yourself.
Bear in mind that headaches may increase during the process (something called a “healing crisis”).
4. Weight gain
It’s true that losing weight is very difficult and for some people gaining weight is equally as hard.
However, if in spite of exercise and diet you don’t notice any change on the scales (or you’ve gained weight), it could be due to a hormonal problem.
What does this have to do with toxins? The function of hormones can also be poisoned and imbalanced because of the food we eat or the habits we keep up.
5. Concentration problems
Is it more of a struggle to focus on tasks? Do you leave things halfway through because your head is “in the clouds”? Do you find it difficult to make clear decisions?
The “mental fog” is the inability to concentrate and is very common when the body has accumulated too many toxins.
Don’t make the mistake of drinking coffee or alcohol to cover up the problem. On the contrary, eliminate waste with a proper diet.
Sometimes you’re happy and, from one moment to the next, you feel like the most unfortunate person on the planet.
Your mood changes several times a day and you blame external factors such as traffic, work, money problems, or housework.
However, depression and anguish can also occur due to an unhealthy diet and due to the accumulation of toxins (which aren’t eliminated properly).
Start a healthy diet and little by little you’ll see the results.
If you have nightmares, wake up in the middle of the night and you can’t fall back to sleep, or you have a hard time sleeping, maybe it could be due to an excess of toxins.
This is because toxins interrupt the functions of the hormone melatonin, which is responsible for relaxation and rest.
- Sometimes, we may believe that the solution is to take sleeping pills or relaxants. However, they become a double-edged sword.
- Increasingly higher doses are needed to get to sleep and we also add more toxins to the body.
- Therefore, we recommend some different techniques, such as meditation or yoga, before going to bed to get a good night’s sleep.
8. Muscle pains
It’s true that the life we lead leads to muscle aches and spasms, especially in the cervical or dorsal area. However, often it seems that we experience stiffness without having really done anything at all.
You might put it down it to a bad night’s sleep, a new pillow, or exercise, but if none of it causes pain … what’ to blame? Toxins.
When toxins are at high levels in the body, they cause inflammation and therefore pain and movement problems.
Our skin reflects our health. Therefore, it’s important to pay attention to it. When our body wishes to eliminate toxins, it can do so through various different routes.
One of them is through the skin. As a result, pimples appear in certain areas like the face, torso, or back.
Additionally, our skin looks unhealthy, with enlarged pores and black spots.
To avoid this, you not only have to cleanse and exfoliate, but also pay attention to what you eat and what might be causing this problem.It might interest you...
