To detoxify is to remove harmful toxins in your body that have built up from the air you breathe, the food you eat, and the water you drink. Toxin build-up comes with many physical consequences.
You may feel foggy-brained, tired and sluggish, and you probably easily catch a cold. Somehow, you just don’t feel great no matter what you do. Health conditions associated with high toxin levels in the body include asthma, migraines, acne, chronic stress, acid reflux, obesity, and arthritis. There is a clear link between disease and toxicity.
Detoxifying could be the solution to your health problems. The goal of detoxification is to achieve a balance in which the level of toxins does not become higher than the presence of anti-toxins in your body.
Here are some reasons to consider detoxifying.
You Will Feel Like A New Person
When you detox, you will feel clear, refreshed, and rejuvenated. It’s not uncommon for people to get into the habit of detoxifying because of the new person-feeling afterward. After feeling stressed, anxious, and depressed for so long, you will feel alive, be full of energy, and be ready to take on anything that comes your way.
You Will Minimize Junk Food Cravings
Cravings are what happens when you eat a lot of sugar, salt, and carbohydrates. They may make you feel full for a good 30 minutes, but by design, you will be reaching for more after that. These are junk foods that do your body no good. They also have an addicting effect, changing your brain chemistry and affecting your hormones, which makes you crave them more. A detox can help you wean off addictive food ingredients.
You Will Lose Weight
Minimized cravings can help you shed excess pounds. If you detoxify, you will also improve nutrient absorption, which means you get the best out of the foods you eat and will feel full longer. You will also nix cravings for unhealthy foods that only accumulate toxins in your body, making you feel heavy and sluggish.
Your Skin Will Thank You
Dry and dull skin is oftentimes a sign of toxins in the body. Your skin reflects the state of your body, and detoxifying can reveal clearer, even-toned, and glowing skin.
You Will Strengthen Your Immune System
The removal of toxins, better nutrient absorption, and weight loss that follows are signifiers of a well-functioning body. You will be in a much better position to fight off illnesses because your immune response will work much better with no toxin build-up in your body.
