Why Do We Need To Detox?
You might not realise it, but your body is subjected to toxins every day. These toxins may exist in the air you breathe or the foods you eat. Unless you’re living a wholly natural life, your body is contaminated. This isn’t something cooked up by paranoia, either. Chronic and degenerative diseases are on the rise. We live in a society consumed by fast food and preservatives, and the rate of pollution increases every year.
Detoxing is how you help relieve your body of the modern world that it wasn’t biologically made to handle. The toxins you intake every day can be the reasons for a lot of your everyday health problems – and you don’t even know it.
Why Detoxing is a Necessity, not an Option
Detoxing helps you to strengthen your detoxification organs and flushes the preexisting toxins out from your body. As it stands, your body does do its job to help cleanse your body of impurities, as seen in how your lungs, liver and overall organ systems operate. Your body has multiple built in filtration systems, but overworking these systems can lead to rapid health decline.
For instance, your pores are a detoxification factory, and your skin is as well. In fact it’s the largest detoxification factory of the human body.
When you cake on toxins, like makeup and unnatural cleansers, your skin can break out and become unhealthy. While this isn’t the one reason acne exists, and in specific cases it may not be the reason at all, but taking impurities out of the equation can help your skin become clearer and more youthful.
When you help your body out by detoxing, you let your detoxification factories take the day off.
Running at full capacity isn’t good for them, and in turn isn’t good for you.
Symptoms of Body Toxicity
The following are a few of the symptoms that can be caused by prolonged body toxicity.
- PSM and imbalanced hormones.
- Ruddy, dry skin and acne.
- Weight gain and cellulite.
- Wrinkles and skin imperfections.
- Mucous in your lungs.
- Lack of sleep.
- Lack of alertness.
- Mood swings and depression.
- Other degenerative diseases.
Detoxing is one amazing way to reduce all of these symptoms!
They get better and more long-lasting the longer you detox. For instance, detoxing for about six months can lead to smoother and clearer skin, while detoxing for about three years can even your skin color and eliminate wrinkles.
More Benefits of Detoxing
The best way to see long-term benefits is to turn detoxing into a lifestyle, not just something to do on occasion. A detox isn’t just something to use as a diet trend – it can become a way of life.
For those who do use detoxing as their lifestyle, these people become less at risk for major diseases. These include cancers, diabetes, mental illness and arthritis. Life-long detoxing can also increase your lifespan and can decrease your risk for senility.
The longer someone detoxes, the more likely they are to lose weight and keep it off, which makes detoxing one of the easiest ways to avoid yo-yo weight loss and gain. This also helps to level out blood sugar and muscle tone when combined with an exercise routine.
