When your body cries out for a detox, it sends clear warning signals, which manifest with extreme tiredness, headache, poor digestion and mood swings.
Do you know how to recognize the signals your body sends? If you have recently felt extreme tiredness, very low energy levels, headache, digestive problems, dry skin and cloudy urine, it is likely that bad habits and food excesses are responsible for an overload in the body. When this happens one of the first symptoms that occur is a notable decrease in the purification capacity, when this mechanism deteriorates all kinds of toxins accumulate much more easily.
The liver and kidneys are the main organs in resenting this overload, as they are responsible for the body’s cleaning functions. For its part, the liver is responsible for neutralizing or transforming many of the toxic substances into harmless and manages to be expelled. The kidneys filter the blood and eliminate these wastes through the urine.RELATED
It is possible to counteract the effects caused by this overload through periodic detoxification, it is a process that helps improve health in every way, but above all it resets the internal balance. It also serves to eliminate toxins that damage the body and are responsible for some degenerative diseases.
The messages that the body sends:
1. Extreme fatigue
There are several causes for which the body manifests tiredness and lack of energy, in the first place it may be due to an accumulation of histamine that fails to be metabolized by the enzyme diamino oxidase (DAO). On the other hand the liver is also responsible, being a key agent in obtaining energy involved in the metabolization of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins; When overloaded by excess toxins it is reflected in chronic fatigue.
One of the clearest consequences of excess toxins in the body is reflected in a reduction in the production of melatonin (the hormone responsible for regulating sleep), so that the first indicative will be manifested through insomnia, poor quality of sleep and various related alterations that prevent a natural and restful rest.
3. Depression and altered moods
When the liver is overloaded due to an accumulation of toxins not only damages the general functioning of the organism, this is reflected in damage to the hormonal balance which is directly related to alterations in the mood. We are more likely to suffer from depression, irritability, nervousness and decayed states.
4. Digestive disorders
Another of the main and most decisive signals, this is because the accumulation of toxins occurs in the gastrointestinal tract which prevents it from functioning properly. This is reflected through inflammation, swelling, heavy digestions, nausea and gas. A good recommendation is to opt for fiber-rich foods and give digestion a rest through a cleansing diet based on juices, soups and broths.
