6. Feelings of Depression

Most of the time our feelings are linked to our diet. Coffee can give us a boost of energy; chamomile tea can make us feel calm and sleepy. Your mood can change simply by the consumption of certain foods and drinks. Eating low quality or non-organic foods over a long period of time can leave you feeling depressed. This is why, for many people, eating a healthier diet does not make you feel better. The toxins that have accumulated in the body will block the absorption of vital nutrients, which will leave you feeling out of energy and depressed. It is important to note that there is a big difference between feelings of depression and clinical depression. If you think you might be clinically depressed, please see your doctor right away. A detox will not help clinical depression but it will help you to avoid those negative, depressing thoughts.

An accumulation of toxins leaves us feeling unable to concentrate, focus, or worn out within minutes after starting a project.

Do a safe detox as soon as possible to remove the buildup of toxins in the body.

 

9. Frequent Headaches

If you tend to get frequent headaches that you can’t explain your toxic load is more than likely quite high. Common toxins that cause headaches are dioxins, MSG, aspartame, artificial colors, artificial flavors, chemical preservatives, and heavy metals. This is another common problem that affects many people that seems to disappear almost like magic once a detox is performed.

 

10.  Acne, Rashes, or Boils

Your liver and kidneys are the major detoxing organs in the body, but your skin is also capable of removing some toxins. When you suffer from acne, unexplained rashes, or boils, this is often due to your skin’s inability to remove all the toxins in your body. This accumulation of toxins causes serious skin issues such as these.
