10 Signs You May Need to Detox

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

  1. You feel moody, depressed, or irritable.
  2. Bloating, indigestion, acid reflux, gas, stomach pain, constipation, or other digestive issues are a regular part of your week.
  3. You often crave junk food after around 3:00 PM.
  4. You are frequently constipated.
  5. You are being treated by a doctor or you are treating yourself for skin problems like itchy or blotchy skin, acne, eczema, rosacea or psoriasis.
  6. You have food intolerances and have to avoid certain foods completely. Common food intolerances include dairy, wheat, gluten, tree nuts and eggs.
  7. You often want to nap after a meal or around 3 or 4 PM.
  8. You rarely feel wake up feeling fully rested and ready for the day.
  9. You frequently eat processed foods with long shelf-lives.
  10. You have achy joints and muscles.

If these are things with which you struggle on a regular basis, it’s a pretty good indication that you are taking in toxins from your environment and from the foods you eat faster than your body can eliminate them.

Proponents say that doing a proper detox offers many benefits, including dramatically reducing junk food cravings, reducing inflammation and increasing the proportion of good gut bacteria. Most trustworthy detox diets range from 24 hours to a week. Some are juice-based. Some are water-based. Some include simple basic healthy foods like brown rice and miso soup.

If you decide to undertake a short term detox, do your homework and follow a plan that has been tested and offers support. A short term detox really can cut your cravings for junk food and sugar but a healthy diet is the best long term solution to regaining maximum health benefits.
