Cleansing & Detoxing my body allowed me actually STOP all the harm I had been doing to my body and give me a chance to catch up and get AT LEAST 1 or more steps ahead.....and what did that mean? Energy, well being, better health, clearer skin and oh yeah, WEIGHT LOSS!!!!
But you may be asking, do I really need to Detox? Is that right for my body? The answer is Yes & No.
YES you need it BUT you need to do it the right way. NO...don't start hitting Google or Pinterest with all the lemon water, cayenne pepper and cucumber waters to flush out the toxins. Trust me, all they will do is help you release some water, make you very weak & tired, loose some healthy muscle tissue and in the end, leave you STARVING then binging THEN gaining back the 3-5 lbs of water + some. Sounds like I have done it before doesn't it? THAT'S BECAUSE I HAVE! Sorry, didn't mean to yell, I just get really upset when I see people hurting themselves like that, especially when I know first-hand just how bad it is. So then what is a person to do? and why?
Detoxification is a natural part of our body's every day functions. We go to the bathroom or sweat when we exert ourselves, that's just 2 of the ways we release toxins. Unfortunately these processes don't always work as efficiently as they should because of our diets, environmental pollution, STRESS and lack of sleep. What is the result? We walk around with a festering toxic waste dump inside our body which can cause so many OTHER symptoms in our life and our health. Symptoms that masquerade as something else.
Here are 5 Signs that your body is SCREAMING for a Detox:
(1) ENERGY DRAIN
One of the main complaints that doctors hear from their clients is that they are exhausted, nave no energy and rely on caffeinated pick-me-ups like coffee and diet soda to get through the day. This begs the question, why are we so crazy tired??? Simply put, we are sleeping less, stressing more and eating far worse than the 20-50 year olds of several decades ago.
