Most Common Signs that You Need to Cleanse & Detox

Most Common Signs that You Need to Cleanse and Detox
With an accumulation of wastes, functions in the body are slowed. When toxins cannot be eliminated efficiently, the body must store them in fat cells, joints, muscles, arteries, liver and other organs. This build up of stored toxins then affects the body's ability to function correctly.  When to body's ability to function is impaired the early signs and symptoms of chronic or degenerative disease begin to show up.
Here's a list of common signs that a detox may be indicated:
  • Allergy or intolerance to certain foods
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Breast soreness
  • Brittle hair and nails
  • Foul-smelling gas (belching and flatulence)
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent chest and nasal congestion (colds, flu, viruses)
  • Indigestion
  • Intolerance to fatty foods
  • Low energy or loss of vitality for no apparent reason
  • Migratory aches and pains
  • Sluggish or irregular bowel movements
  • Swelling of legs
  • Vaginal infections
  • Skin problems-rashes, boils, pimples, acne
While whole body herbal detox programs are the most common method of detoxing and cleansing the body, it is also helpful to increase your intake of fresh fruits and vegetables, especially raw and organic. A healthy vegetable diet is very supportive to the body while using a detox program and also in between. Raw fruits, vegetables and leafy greens are well known for their pH balancing and detoxifying properties. The nutritional components found in raw fruits and vegetables promote optimal cellular functions, which supports the body in eliminating toxins. Adding freshly made vegetable juices will also support the body in removing these unwanted wastes. Eating a diet with a focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, raw and organic preferred, is a great way to reduce toxic-cell overload. However, in conjunction with a fabulously health diet, a whole body herbal detox program is still recommended at least once or maybe twice a year.
