Signs There Are Too Many Toxins in Your Life
By Sara Butler
Most people are mindful of their health and take steps every day to try to support a healthy lifestyle. You eat right, you exercise and you see your chiropractor regularly, but something is still not right. That something might just be your daily exposure to toxins in your environment. Here are a few signs that your toxic load is too high, and what you can do about it.
If you’re getting enough sleep at night but find you still have to fight to stay awake during the day then this may be a sign your body is fighting an internal battle with toxins. This negative side effect can be compounded if your solution is to chug some coffee or indulge in a sugary treat. If you have no underlying health conditions then the answer to your fatigue might be exposure to hormone disrupting chemicals in your life that are zapping your energy and damaging your immune system.
If you have good oral hygiene but still find your breath is bad, then you may have an underlying problem with your digestive system or your liver is struggling to rid your body of toxins. Breath mints aren’t going to solve this problem – you’ve got to address the underlying problem to rid yourself of your dragon breath.
If you find you have a strong reaction to smells, such as perfumes, then you might be sensitive to chemicals. It can also mean that your body is waging a war against toxins in your system. If you also suffer from headaches or some scents make your stomach turn, then your body may have a high toxic load.
If you suffer from rashes, acne or other skin issues, then it could be a sign you’re dealing with toxic overload. Acne can be the result of reactions to toxins in your skin care products or your diet. Eczema, psoriasis, and puffy eyes may also be an indication that your toxic load is too high.
What You Can Do
If these symptoms sound familiar then you should take action by:
- Drinking more water
- Support a healthy liver through your diet
- Exercise 30 minutes a day – just a walk can help
- Try some probiotics
- Practice deep breathing exercises
- Use personal care products that are natural and not filled with chemicals
- Eat organic, whole and clean foods when you can
