How toxic are we and what makes us toxic?

Toxic From:

• Plastics

• Synthetic hormones

• Heavy Metals

• Sugar and preservatives

• Alcohol, tea, coffee and prescription/recreational drugs

• Antibiotics

• Fertilizers/pesticides

Cleansing and elimination is absolutely key for a healthy body. Outside of the naturopathic realm, many people see cleanses as something they decide to do a few times a year, when ideally it is more balanced to see cleansing as something the body does all the time. Try to live in a way where the body is getting rid of unwanted toxins EVERY DAY. The body actually wants to function like this!

Imagine treating your body like a freshly made bed. Each day you shake the bedding out to make it tidy again. Oxygen gets round, the blood flows better, your brain will function better, secretions and odours do not build up, your liver and kidneys empty themselves, you bowel gets rid of all of the waste, your skin looks bright, your hair shiny and strong.

The body cannot always cleanse all by itself. We can all find it hard to stay clear of toxins and may also need some extra help to get rid of them.

Human tissue laded with toxins cannot assimilate nutrients well or eliminate its own wastes efficiently. For example, tissue that needs repair; heals very slowly until toxins are removed.

Potential Signs of toxicity:

• Headaches/migraines

• Eye infections/itchy eyes

• Dark circles under eyes

• Infertility

• Menstrual problems/reproductive area problems/PMT

• Excessive mucus/catarrh

• inability to shake off colds/coughs – catching these easily

• Constant swollen glands – especially in throat

• Acne, skin rashes, eczema, psoriasis

• Body oddor

• Bad breath

• Joint/muscle pain – e.g arthritis

• Sluggish metabolism

• Fatigue/exhaustion

• Nausea

• Strong reaction to alcohol

• Bloating

• Poor bowel movements/constipation

• Food intolerances

• Excessive cellulite

• Lumpy/painful breasts

• Water retention

• Mood swings, irritability, impatience

• Low libido
