Wow, after this whole big holiday thing of eating a ton food. I am so ready for a huge detox diet. I have completely went way off the route that I totally eat. I have eaten things that have been totally full of way to much sugar and many processed ingredients.
Things I do not eat.
So, yes I am totally feeling the effects of too much sugar in my system. Many of the ways that I can tell that my body is having a toxic overload is I began to get a ton of headaches. My body starts to twitch in my hands and feet along with eyes feeling weird.
I know you’re like dang girl, you notice all that.
Yeah, I do.
I am a very interpersonal, intrapersonal intuitive person. Which allows me the ability to be very in tuned with my body and the things that go on inside of it. My body is so sensitive that I get sensory overload frequently and had to learn from a young age how to handle certain situations when there is too much going on.
It’s a new year, with a lot of new things going on, and I can’t go into the new year full of toxins in my system. When I go on detox diet I really don’t do to many planned out box detox kits, I like to eat real food for my detox.
Although, I have used things in the past. I generally just stick to plan oh food. Simple, Clean, Pure, Food.
Over The next couple of days I plan to take you with me on my easy detox plan and discover some new methods of detoxing.
But first let’s take a step back and learn what the toxins are and when we should detox. Toxins come in many different forms and can affect your health in many ways.
You may have heard that detoxing helps improve your health. What you may not know is how. What happens when you remove toxins from your body? And what types of toxins are inside you?
Toxins come in a few different categories. They include:
* Household toxins
* Food toxins
* Environmental toxins
* Lifestyle toxins
Let’s take a closer look at each type of toxin.
These toxins are the easiest to eliminate from your life. However, the detox and withdrawal process can be quite challenging. Lifestyle toxins are the toxins you get from smoking, taking prescription and over the counter medications, and drinking alcohol. Sugar and white flour can also be a significant toxin and cause serious problems. Even high levels of caffeine can cause health problems.
Food toxins include artificial sweeteners like aspartame and Acesulfame K. It also includes chemical fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides and preservatives. During the farming and manufacturing process the food you eat is exposed to hundreds of chemicals. The human body isn’t equipped to manage these chemicals. Thus those chemicals stay in your body. The result can be severe including cancer and immune or neurological disorders.
Which is why I say my hands and feet begin to twitch. Weird huh.
Detoxing helps get them out of your body.
Go outside and take a breath of fresh air. As cleansing as that breath can feel, it is contaminated by toxins. These toxins are off gasses from farming and manufacturing processes. In addition, combustion engines and other systems create pollution. That pollution finds its way into your body in the air you breathe and the water you drink.
There have been many studies that have shown that the air inside your home is much more dangerous than the air outside your home. Indoor pollution is a real problem. Household cleansers are filled with chemicals. You breathe them in whenever you use them. Additionally, bath and body products are also filled with chemicals.
Toxins are everywhere. They’re inside your home, workplace and the places you visit. They’re also in the food you eat and the things you drink. You can minimize your exposure to toxins by eating organic and locally grown foods. Use natural cleaning products in your home and bath.
You can also purge the toxins from your system by occasionally going on a detox program. Which I like to go on short detox plans using real food. You’ll be able to purge the toxins from your body and maintain your health. It’s a great way to wipe the slate clean and start fresh
You can gain renewed energy, better sleep, more mental clarity and even lose weight by occasionally detoxing. Take great care when you detox. Follow your doctor’s guidelines and treat your body well.
So let’s Begin.
