12 Signs You Need A Detox

12 Signs You Need a Detox

Toxins are harmful substances that are derived from food, water, cleaning products, and other environmental sources that we are exposed to regularly. An accumulation of toxins may become poisonous in the human body, which may lead to potential damage to vital organs and systems. Considering that these toxins enter our body by ingestion (preservatives, additives and food contamination), inhalation (pollutants in the air we breathe) and absorption (through skin and eyes), the risk of toxic overload is a common concern. Internally, autointoxication is process where the toxins are produced by your own body as a result of poor digestion and elimination

A toxic body may manifest a variety of signs and symptoms:

  1. Skin problems (rashes, acne, etc.)
  2. Food and scent intolerances
  3. Constipation, diarrhea and other digestive issues
  4. Frequent colds and viruses
  5. Unexplained headaches
  6. Lower back pain
  7. General aches and pains
  8. Fatigue and low energy
  9. Inability to feel rested after sleep
  10. Compromised resistance to infections
  11. Inability to lose weight
  12. Fuzzy thinking

The body neutralizes or eliminates toxins via the liver, kidneys, intestines, skin, and lungs. The toxins that the body is unable to eliminate are usually stored in fat tissues and bone. The elimination of waste targeted in many detoxification programs often results in the improvement of weight loss and medical conditions, such as obesity, arthritis, eczema, digestive disorders, and depression.

In a study of 12 patients to evaluate our metabolic cleanse to evaluate effectiveness, compliance, and the “do-ability” of our program. Patients filled out a questionnaire before and after our 15-day program, the average drop in symptoms of the 12 patients were 65%. Some of the patient's scores were more significant. One patient went from a score of 50 to 8 with a drop in symptom scores of 84% and she lost 12 pounds. While another patient’s score only dropped 32%, he only lost 4 pounds. He had been suffering from an extreme eczema outbreak on his hands for eight months. Here is what he said, “Nothing topical was helping to give me relief. The 15-day cleanse and giving up dairy in my diet, cleared up my eczema.”
