Fortunately for us, the body is well-equipped to eliminate toxins and under normal circumstances does not require special diets or expensive supplements to do so. Our ability to detox relies on our anti-oxidant status. Anti-oxidant depletion leads to mucous membrane barrier breeching and toxin overload.
In the early stages the body tries to expel the toxins through the detox organs. As a result of an accompanied immune system response like mucous overproduction symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, coughing, sore throat, heartburn, diarrhoea, vomiting or excessive urination can occur.
If the toxins accumulate in your system symptoms like fatigue, memory difficulties, sleep impairment, depression, “brain fog” and other inflammatory conditions can develop as well as changes to the body odour, skin eruptions or excessively oily skin.
That said, you can enhance your body’s natural detoxification system with targeted nutrition and supplements.
