When Is The Best Time To Detox?
There comes a point in an adult’s life when we ask ourselves “Do I need to detox my body?”
The funny thing is this is often after we have been over indulging in food and drink that are generally bad for us, and have been for a fairly long time.
More often than not, the urge to detox our bodies is commonly after our Christmas or summer holidays where we have been enjoying the treat of too much alcohol and rich fatty foods.
I think we all know when it’s time for a detox, as our bodies have a subtle way of showing us some detox symptoms.
Common Detox Symptoms
So what are some of the tell tale signs & detox symptoms that tell us it’s time we detoxed our bodies?
Generally we can become very lethargic, and we can notice a drop in our natural energy levels. Our bodies can start to feel heavy, and we can often feel full and bloated.
Headaches are also another tell tale detox symptom that tell us that toxins have built up in our system. Our moods may drop, and we may also start to feel a little anxious and depressed.
Other common symptoms are constipation, cellulite, bad skin including dry skin and also bad breath.
Having trouble sleeping at night may also be a sign of that our bodies need to detox.
