Toxic Load Bringing You Down?
Toxins can cause or contribute to chronic fatigue, body odor, insomnia, food or chemical sensitivities and headaches. If you are suffering from these symptoms and your doctor can’t find a cause, #toxins may be a factor.
Because toxins are foreign substances, they can provoke an inflammatory response as the body attempts to deal with them. #Inflammation is implicated in the development of certain conditions and toxins in the body may initiate or exacerbate inflammatory conditions.
The gastrointestinal (GI) tract provides one of several routes of #toxin #elimination. GI problems can both cause and result from toxins. People with a heavy toxic burden may experience poor digestion, constipation, ulcers, etc.
The #skin is another means of toxin elimination, and skin problems such as acne, eczema and psoriasis are common in those who have excessive amounts of toxins in their bodies.
Compromised cognitive ability often results from #systemic #toxic #overload. Memory loss, foggy thinking and mood changes can occur due to toxic overload. Symptoms mimicking dementia–even in young adults–are sometimes observed in those with heavy metal toxicity.
Xenoestrogens are a type of toxin that is becoming more prevalent in the environment; these are synthetic agents that act like estrogen in the body. Xenoestrogens can cause hormone imbalances in women, leading to symptoms of PMS and endometriosis, and in men, leading to elevated levels of estrogen and lower sperm counts.
Here are just a few areas where we are bombarded with more toxins now than ever before:
· #Drugs and Alcohol Use.
· #Chemicals in the water and food supply.
· #Household and #personal #care #products.
· Negative thoughts and #emotions.
Detoxing is a Necessity of Our Modern World (Even if Your Doc Says Otherwise)
Many people still believe that taking the time to #detoxify the body is a luxury, like going to the spa or getting a pedicure. Unfortunately, this is also the view of many professionals in modern medicine as well.
Many of the scientific discoveries that formed the foundation of our conventional medical system occurred over 100 years ago. A lot has happened since then, including an exponential rise in toxic risk.
But just because your traditional physician may not be up to speed on the need for regular detoxing doesn’t mean that you have to suffer through the symptoms of toxic buildup yourself!
