The world is a toxic place to live in. The air has harmful gasses; water has chemicals; and the food we eat contains preservatives, pesticides and chemical flavors and colours. More than that, the medicines we take can cause harmful side effects. Though our body can tolerate these impurities, it was not designed to host it. The toxins slow down the natural flow of circulation in our body. It even accumulates in certain parts of our body and causes us to feel sick. Let’s study why it is essential to detoxify our body.
Toxin Builds Up
We know that there is something wrong with our body when we don’t feel well. Good and bad substances don’t go together. When you feel pain or discomfort, your body reacts to the changes introduced to it.
Here are some symptoms that are linked with toxins.
According to Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s study, headaches are caused by oversensitivity of nerve tissue to chemical irritants. More chemical irritants increase headache pain.
- Muscle pains & Fatigue
When lactic acids increase and left unused, it causes pain during movement. This also causes you to feel tired and stressed.
- Memory loss
Based on the Labour Environmental Alliance Society, prolonged or repeated exposure to toxic substances such as Xylene, can cause memory loss. This symptom is also connected with insomnia.
Similar to memory loss, exposure to heavy metals and chemicals can cause insomnia. Our exposure to toxic gasses has negative effects to the quality and length of our sleep.
In a recent neuroscience study, it was found that phytochemicals may serve as toxins which stimulate stress at the cellular level.
Detox: Your Best Option
When you start to feel some of the symptoms, consider going on a detox diet before taking in medicine. Unlike detoxification, medicines only provide temporary relief for these symptoms and it doesn’t solve the real cause. On the other hand, you get to experience long term positive effects if you opt to detoxify your body. Detox also rejuvenates your body and keeps you healthy.
Help your body be in its best condition. Take time to rest and cleanse when you feel like toxins are already loading up in your body. Detox will help you stay fit and it will free you from the stress of being unwell.
