Symptoms of toxic overload

I’ve mentioned before that many of the common ailments we attribute to aging are not actually normal parts of the aging process at all. Aches, pains, arthritis, increasing digestive issues — many of these things are our bodies’ way of telling us that the toxic burden has become too much to bear. We don’t have to put up with chronic aches and pains and accept the fact that we’re getting old — we can restore our health and vitality by eating clean and giving our bodies a chance to rid itself of the toxins.

Engaging in a regular period of focused detoxification — some health experts recommend every spring and every fall — may help you clear up chronic health problems, lose weight, restore your energy, and yield some surprising results. After a detoxification period, people often report the resolution of health problems such as:

  • allergies
  • restless sleep
  • indigestion, bloating, or gas
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • acne, rashes, and other skin conditions
  • joint pain and muscle aches
  • depression and anxiety
  • fatigue
  • sinus congestion
  • brain fog or difficulty concentrating
  • dark undereye circles
  • recurrent colds
  • heartburn
  • canker sores
  • fluid retention
  • premature aging
  • low sex drive
  • headaches

Interested in detoxing? Start off by eliminating the foods commonly responsible for the internal inflammation that leads to many of these symptoms: mainly, wheat and dairy. Learn more about elimination diets.
