Like a car, the body needs regular monitoring and cleansing to make sure it functions wells. What happens if you keep using your car and don’t bother changing the oil? The same goes for your body, it will eventually malfunction if you don’t do proper care. And proper care includes detoxification.
While it’s true that the body has a natural
detox system, this system can slow down when facing stress. This is when you
need to take extra steps to ensure you regain balance and remain healthy. A
good detox session purifies the body from any infections or impurities.
Listen to your body closely and watch out for these cues that tell you that your body is due for a proper detox.
1. You’re always tired or fatigued.
Not all days are perfect. Some days we just have that feeling of being extra tired. But if you’re experiencing the same fatigue every single day even after having enough hours of sleep, it could be an alarming sign of your body being under stress. This may be a result of your adrenaline glands being pressured. They supply essential hormones to keep up with stress and when pressured, they tend to get overwhelmed resulting in fatigue. A good cleansing could turn this around.
2. You fall sick often.
Falling sick too often is a sign of a weakened immune system. This makes you vulnerable to catching viruses and bacteria. Cut back on junk and processed food and boost your immune system with fruits and vegetables. To make sure you get the right amount of vegetable serving per day, get yourself a power-packed green powder like the pHresh greens® which provides 3-4 servings of raw greens in just one teaspoon.
3. You’re having a hard time sleeping.
An easy-to-identify signal that your body is in need of detox is when you’re having trouble sleeping, sometimes to the point of insomnia. When the body is carrying a lot of toxins, this can affect the circadian rhythm, which is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Irregular circadian rhythms can also be due to underlying hormonal issues like leptin resistance and adrenal fatigue. As a result, your sleeping patterns get messed up. Detoxify to once again enjoy a full eight-hour sleep.
4. You develop skin reactions.
Another common sign of body toxin is skin infections, allergies, and problems such as breakouts. When the body is overloaded with toxins, the liver can’t keep up and other organs try to flush out those toxins through, for instance, the skin. As the skin tries to eliminate toxins in the body, it reacts badly to the process because it perceives them as poison, leading to acne, skin rashes, eczema, dermatographia, and boils.
5. You suffer intense mood swings.
Feeling like you’re going through a spin of mood swings? You must be overworked. When this happens, the mind and body are the firsts to get stressed. To cope with this, the body produces dopamine (or the "happy hormone") and other chemicals. However, when there is too much negativity in the system, it can block dopamine production. This can lead to being overly emotional and moody, which can even lead to depression and anxiety. There’s scientific evidence that suggests a link between food and mental health, indicating that daily consumption of vegetables contributes to a reduction in the prevalence of psychological distress. So make sure to pack on your super green powder to nourish your body—and mind.
6. You have poor memory and concentration.
Memory retention and concentration or lack thereof cannot only be blamed on getting older. As you may already know, too much toxicity affects the liver. This causes a buildup in the bloodstream going up to the brain, which may block the neurotransmitters from functioning properly. Thus, causing your brain to slow down.
7. You experience constipation.
Removing waste from your body daily is vital. If you’re not having a bowel movement every day due to lack of antioxidants in your diet, then the toxins are absorbed into your bloodstream and they start building up. It’s best to drink plenty of water or add superfoods powder like the pHresh Superblends™ to your water or juice for that maximum nourishment. A diet rich in antioxidants and fiber helps eliminate constipation, bloating, and prevent toxins from being absorbed into the bloodstream.
