Detox is an action that can impact your health and wellness for the better. The question remains though. Is it time for a detox?
You might have heard of drinking these awful concoctions that make you visit the bathroom way too often in a day. Or taking something out of your diet to clean it up.
Maybe juice cleanses, Whole30, or even drinking bone broth might be your go to.
Some of the detoxes out there are more appealing than others. Who really wants to drink something that looks like mud?
With a world that is growing ever more toxic, detoxing is very much a concern when it comes to optimal health and wellness.
Regardless of what types of detoxes are available, the real question remains.
Is it time for a detox?
Listen to your body! It’s telling you secrets.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Listen to your body! It’s telling you secrets.
If you are experiencing any of these, it’s a good time for you to start considering a detox, researching it, and doing it properly.
When you do a detox, you want to make sure the reason behind what you’re doing. Also, you need to be aware to how your body responds in certain circumstances.
Caution Flag: Enter at your own risk and be wise. Do your research and understand the detox process for you specifically. Seek professional counsel and guidance when it comes to making any health and wellness decision.
What are the situations that would constitute you doing a detox?
1. Digestion Complication(s)
Diarrhea, bloating, constipation, and gas. These things are not normal if everything is working properly. Plus, they’re uncomfortable and a little embarrassing. Hit the reset button. Detox and give your gut a break!
2. Sugar cravings OFTEN!
When you constantly have insatiable cravings, this is a humongous sign that something is not right with your body! If you are eating a lot of processed foods, you can mess up your blood sugar and leptin hormones. You are on a roller coaster of a ride searching for more what? JUNK!! When you do a detox focusing on REAL foods (God made it, you can eat it), then it allows your body to heal from the inside out and reset itself.
3. Regularly occurring seasonal allergies
Think of this more as sinus related. Your gut health (your microbiome) has an effect on your immune system. If one is weak, typically the other is weak too.
4. Feel yucky even when eating healthy
No matter how clean you eat, your body can benefit from taking a break (or detox) from your “norm”. Eliminating certain foods for a period of time. This allows your body to rest and repair.
One way our body shows build up of toxins is how it appears on our skin. Your skin being the largest organ of the body, you have to know that what you put in and on your body affects your performance of your skin. We sweat through our skin ridding it of toxins. It’s an inside outside effect.
6. Persistent fatigue
You’re always tired and it doesn’t make sense as to why. It can be a problem with how your body is communicating between the brain and the adrenal glands (adrenal fatigue). You can have increased cortisol levels due to stress, inflammations, gut issues, and toxins.
7. Foggy and Groggy
You have a difficult time focusing. Some call it brain fog. You want to flush out the toxins in the hypothalamus to relieve that oxidative stress.
8. Consistent ongoing joint pain
If you are waking up feeling achey like you ran a marathon, but you haven’t done anything close to that (your muscles are stiff and sore), this is a good indication of inflammation. Time to get rid of it!
If you are in constant stress, you might not only be experiencing internal inflammation and imbalance, but you may need to give your external self a break. It’s the outside stimuli/influence. For example, social media break, negative people in your life. Think about stimuli where you thrive. What serves you as an individual? This is specific to you!
10. Struggling with weight
If you are having a difficult time losing weight, one issue is your gut. You need to be healthy to lose weight. And sometimes your body is too unhealthy that it is in survival mode, not willing to give up anything. You want to focus on healing your gut from the inside out.
11. Problems with SLEEP
When you are not getting enough sleep, your body is under stress. Plus, the body cannot restore itself. (Release, repair, restore)
If any of these sound all to familiar, then you most likely would benefit from a detox.
