5 Reasons to Detox
In recent years, a lot of attention has been brought to body detoxification, also known as cleansing. In fact, the topic is so popular that you may have heard of it before. While some individuals may jump right on the detox bandwagon, you may be looking for more information. For example, what reasons call for a detox diet? Continue reading on to find out.
1 – Drug or Alcohol Dependency
A dependency on drugs or alcohol is the biggest reason why you could benefit from detoxification. Unfortunately, this detoxification is recommended under the care of a medical professional. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe for many.
Although drug and alcohol dependencies are common reasons for detoxification, very few individuals fit into this category. If you only enjoy a glass of wine or a beer from time to time, you are likely classified as a social drinker, not an addict.
2 – Lack of Energy
Millions of Americans suffer from a lack of energy or fatigue. There are many reasons for this, one of which being deprivation of sleep. Another reason could be medical. For example, some thyroid conditions can leave you feeling fatigued and energy-less. Once these issues have been ruled out, it is time for a body cleanse or body detox.
Many of the foods and drinks we consume are ridden with unnatural chemicals and other additives. By many standards, they are safe, but it is the accumulation that needs to be considered. Even healthy bodies do not fully expel all toxins; therefore, a cleanse is advised. When your body starts to feel like new from the inside, you will notice a significant change in your energy levels.
3 – Skin Problems
The buildup of toxins in the human body not only impacts energy levels and our internal organs, but the skin as well. Some individuals with acne problems have tried various different forms of over-the-counter medications, only to be met with defeat. However, many of those same individuals noticed an improvement with a full body cleanse.
While on a full body detox, many fast or consume all-natural foods. If you are looking to improve the overall appearance of your skin, go a step farther. Switch to organic or natural skincare products, makeup, including lotions, creams, shampoos, and soaps.
4 – The Consumption of Unnatural Foods
When it comes to unnatural foods, there is some confusion. Many view unnatural as safe. Since there are millions of foods currently available for sale in department stores and grocery stores, these products are often viewed as safe. Yes, technically they are, but many are ridden with unnatural chemicals and additives. Some of these stay and buildup inside our bodies. That is why a body detox or cleanse is recommended.
An easy way to cleanse your body, without fasting, involves consuming all-natural, organic foods. Some recommend doing so for a week to a month. On that same note, after a detox, your body is clean and “pure,” again. So, it is advised that you be careful with what you resume consuming, otherwise the buildup process will begin again.
