Detox has become a common term nowadays. But is detoxing your body really useful? Yes, it is! While alcohol and drugs are the most obvious toxic substances, there are less conspicuous toxins that enter our bodies on a daily basis. Our liver, kidneys, and skin perform our bodies' natural detoxification processes but some toxins are hard to remove without external help.
So, how can we know if our body needs detoxification? Our bodies give away signs it needs help, but most of us are unable to read them. Worry not though, because we've got you! We reached out to Dietician Vidhi Chawla, Founder of Fisico Diet Clinic, and asked her to share her expert inputs on recognising the signs our body needs a detox. Read on to know all that she shared!
Sign 1: Your body is always tired
You feel constantly tired even though you rest for 4 to 5 hours or you haven't done a lot of work. Tiredness could definitely signify other body issues, but a top reason could be that your body needs to get rid of toxins. Either the toxins have reached your brain or your body is dealing with a toxic overload, that is, it is filled with toxins.
Sign 2: Poor digestion
Poor Digestion has many forms like abdominal bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or gassiness which also causes slow metabolism and resistance in the body to losing weight. This is a visible indication that your body is filled with toxins and you need to follow a relevant detox plan.
Sign 3: Hormonal imbalance
If you are irritable and ready to snap all the time, you can blame the toxins in your body. Major mood swings represent a hormonal imbalance in the body. If you're experiencing such imbalance even when you're not on your period, your body is most likely tired of toxins and begging you to get rid of them.
Sign 4: Brain fog
If you constantly space out during the day for no particular reason or you suffer from poor memory and concentration, toxins have probably reached your brain. Due to the toxic overload in your body, toxins start to build up in the blood which affects neurotransmission in the brain.
Sign 5: Skin breakouts
Did you have an important appointment, maybe a date, and now your face sports a big red bump? Your liver is a one-man army but it can't keep up with a load of toxins so all your organs have decided to help and try to flush out those toxins through the skin but since it perceives them as the poison it reacts badly to the process which results in breakouts.
Which of these signs can you relate to? Please share it with us in the comments below!
