10 Signs Your Body Needs a Detox


You may have read about the benefits of various detox programs, including weight loss, increased energy levels, improved immunity and a body that has been cleansed of the unwanted build-up of toxins. You may be wondering, however, if a detox is right for you. Below are ten of the best clues your body gives you to tell you that it’s time to detox.

If you wake up tired after a good night’s sleep, and feel that way throughout the day, this is a sign that you need to detoxify. A detox can rid your body of the wastes that are stopping you from feeling energetic.

Frequent constipation is a sign that there is something amiss about your digestive system and this can be the result of storing waste in your bowels and colon. A good cleanse will help treat the problem rather than the symptoms.

Lack of Concentration
If you find it difficult to concentrate, this could be a sign that there is a buildup of substances like heavy metals, candida and other harmful substances. Detoxification can help clear these up and give a boost to your cognitive function.

If you feel blue, this may be another way your body it telling you to cleanse. Exposure to toxins and/or a poor diet can certain add to feelings of anxiety or distress. Detoxifying, on the other hand, can help restore you to a better emotional state.

Weight Problems
If you are overweight, a detox program can help you cleanse your body out and give it the nutrients that it is craving; detoxes can help put your body in a good position to start losing weight in a healthy and natural manner.

Excessive toxins in the body can interfere with your sleep cycles and leave you awake at night, then feel very tired the next day. Detox programs restore the circadian rhythms so that you can fall asleep naturally and awake refreshed.

Sexual Dysfunction
Your sexual organs are just like the rest of your body: they do not function well in the presence of a toxin build-up. Many people report a stronger libido and better performance once they have completed a detox program.

Unexplained Headaches
Sometimes the cause of a headache is obvious but if you suffer from headache that seem to happen for no apparent reason, detoxing may help. A good cleaning program can get rid of the impurities that may be making you more vulnerable to headaches.

Unexplained Soreness
If you wake up in morning and feel stiff and sore for no apparent cause, this could also be because of a build-up of toxins in your tissues and the inflammation they can cause. A detox program can help reduce this inflammation and also the soreness that goes along with it.

Skin Issues
Chronic skin problems can be your body’s way of reacting to toxin build-up. The best way to treat this is systemically, with a detox program that will go to the root of the problem and cleanse your body of the substances that are causing the skin problems to begin with.

If you have several of the symptoms above, consider a good detoxification program. It can truly make a difference for your sense of well-being and overall health.
