Top 20 Reasons to do a Detox Today
Summer is finished and before you know it, the holiday season will be upon us. After that is when many people begin thinking about starting a diet and exercise program, and many more consider doing a detox program to clean out their systems before they begin.
Starting with small steps is the best way to ensure that you stick with your program. Doing a 3 day juice cleanse is an excellent way to start. This will help you to break your cycle of food cravings, cleanse your liver, and make your resolution one you will stick to.
Many people have no idea just how toxic our modern day environment has become. The average person has 300 toxic chemicals in their body or bloodstream. That’s an average! Some people have many more than that. Although your body has the ability to process some toxins, 300 or more is simply too much for anyone’s body to deal with. This is one of the main reasons why many Americans are suffering from chronic disease and other illnesses that have their base in toxic overload.
Toxins are in the air we breathe, the food we eat, even the chemicals we use to clean our house and bodies with. Almost everything it seems is treated with some type of dangerous chemical.
A detox of your system will help it to re-set itself and offset this chemical overload. Take a look at the top 20 reasons why you should seriously consider not putting off a detox and do one as quickly as possible, maybe you could even start one tomorrow!
1. Rest your stomach
How many people do you know that take some sort of antacid every day? ( maybe even you are!) Performing a juice detox will allow your stomach to take a break from i’s usual routine of acid production, churning, and extraction. Juice takes much less work for your stomach to digest. Think of this time as a vacation for your stomach.
2. Naturally boost the body’s metabolism
Following a detox program will naturally increase the metabolism of your body. Once your intestinal system is cleaned out, your body will once again be able to digest foods more efficiently and garner more nutrition from the foods you eat.
3. The elimination of some medications
Some of the most common ailments are related to the toxins in our blood. When we remove those toxins, it’s not at all uncommon for people with complaints such as cramps, headaches, and migraines, to find that they no longer need over the counter pharmaceuticals to treat these issues.
4. Avoid future diseases
There is really nothing better for the prevention of future illnesses than to get rid of toxins that are taxing your body. Many of today’s chronic diseases are due to high levels of toxins in the body. Removing these substances from the body will allow your immune system to function properly once again.
5. Cleansing of the colon
Following a detox problem will remove excessive waste and mucus from your entire digestive system. Just a few days after you begin your detox, you will really notice the light feeling you have in your entire intestinal tract. You will find relief from excess bloating and gas as your bowels begin to improve and function better.
6. Lose weight
Following a detox program can also help you lose some excess weight. Your body has a natural fat-burning mechanism. Toxins upset the balance of our body’s natural ability to remove fats.
7. Increase your absorption of nutrients
If your digestive tract is clogged with excess waste and toxic chemicals then it’s difficult for your body to absorb all the nutrients that are in the foods you are consuming. Detoxification will clear out the excessive waste in your colon.
8. Realign you with earth’s natural rhythms
Many animal species go for weeks, or even months, fasting and purging their bodies. This keeps their systems functioning at optimal levels. Perhaps doing this is the reason why animals in the wild never develop chronic diseases.
9. Boosts energy levels
Anyone who has ever done a detox program will tell you that the first thing they noticed was a lightness of being and an infusion of energy.
10. Eliminates waste
Let’s not beat around the bush with this. Every living thing that eats also poops and that certainly includes us. Doing a detox that target the colon will help clear out any excess or trapped waste (yes, we mean poop) that is trapped in your intestines.

11. Gives your skin a naturally healthy glow
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. Besides that feeling of lightness, you will find that within a matter of days after starting a detox program, your skin will begin to develop this beautiful radiance from the inside out. Blemishes and acne will disappear.
12. Purifies the liver
Your liver is the organ that does most of the detoxification of your body; however, with 300 chemical, your liver simply wasn’t designed to handle this type of load. Completing a detox program ease the load on your liver and help it to naturally detox itself as well as detox the body.
13. Increases mental clarity
At the end of a body detox, many people say they feel as if a fog has been lifted from their minds, they can think more quickly and maintain a focus like never before.
14. Add years to your life
When toxins are left in the body, they greatly increase your chance of developing cancer, diabetes, obesity, and many other diseases that can lead to an early death. Add years to your life by removing dangerous toxins from your body now.
15. Improves your immune system
Removing chemicals and toxins in the body will improve the immune system and protect your from colds, the flu, and other types of disease.
16. Slows down the aging process
When your body removes toxins from itself, your cells are able to get more oxygen and nourishment. The more nourished our bodies are, the younger and more vibrant we appear.
17. Improve the health of your hair
Another thing you will notice after completing a detox program is that your hair will be shiny and full of life once again. The same way detoxing improves your skin; it will improve the health of your hair as well.
18. Better sleep
Another thing you will notice shortly after you begin your detox is that your mind and body are quieter and you will be able to sleep; that deep quality sleep your body craves.
19. Naturally reduces bad breath
When your digestive tract is out of balance, or has excessive waste, it’s very likely that this will show up as bad breath. These bad smells come from your digestive tract. Detoxing will remove those excess wastes and should improve your breath naturally as a result.
20. Positive healing on the emotions
A lot of people believe that detoxing give you an opportunity to “go inside” yourself and heal many of the emotional issues that you might have. After performing a detox, you should feel as if you are able to think clearly and that you will feel a deeper sense of peace.
