Does your head hurt, the skin is opaque no matter what treatment you follow, you can not concentrate on anything or suffer from edema? Attention, because you may be intoxicated. In the next article you will know a little more about this enemy so frequent but little taken into account. Learn how to detect if the body is intoxicated.
Many are the chemical reactions that occur in the body with the aim of internal balance and keep us healthy. However, this can be affected by different aggressions that come from inside, such as viruses, bacteria, environmental pollution or solar radiation. And in a good degree it is also due to what we eat. That’s right, we can be our worst enemies and without realizing it.
Organs such as the liver (also the lungs and kidneys) are responsible for filtering, neutralizing or controlling the components that can damage the organism. Unfortunately, with the type of meals that we have available in the market, sometimes the tasks of these poor workers are made uphill. Of course, because the body does not know how to react to preservatives, artificial sweeteners, dyes, additives or so-called “flavor enhancers”. All that that has letters and numbers or strange names in the packages that we buy daily. Although they are processed like any other food, they leave some residues that accumulate intoxicate.
How to know if my body is intoxicated?
If we look for the punctual definition of intoxication it would be: disorder, change or reaction provoked by a harmful substance when ingested, breathed or touched. Then, it is an alteration in the organism, an imbalance, which presents symptoms . Sometimes we do not pay attention to the signals that the body gives us and we think it is due to other factors, such as lack of sleep or excessive responsibilities.
The signs that the body is intoxicated are: frequent headache, alterations in the sleep cycle ( insomnia or fatigue), anxiety, apathy, irritability, lack of concentration, memory problems, eczema or dry skin, muscle contractures , lack of energy, chronic fatigue, infections, herpes, allergies, changes in hair or nails, overweight, difficulty in losing weight and edema.
As a first step, it is necessary to know if these symptoms are really due to intoxication or if it is the cause of another problem. A general medical check will determine it. In most cases, the analyzes are between normal limits or there is nothing that calls the attention of the professionals, however, the patient continues to feel bad. Paintings can be mild but progressive to become chronic.
How to prevent poisoning in the body?
We are not talking about being intoxicated by eating a single food in poor condition or having lost the cold chain, but of the sediments left by our meals that are harmful to our health. The good news is that you can do something about it, avoid getting intoxicated more and more and enjoy excellent health.
Take a balanced and natural diet.
The quality of the food we eat has a lot to do with the degree of intoxication we can suffer. If possible, try to eat organic, not industrial, small markets or fairs and not supermarkets, etc. Put aside what is packaged, frozen or made in the microwave. Eat more fruits and vegetables that have not been fumigated and as long as they are seasonal.
Perform physical activity
This is also important since one of the ways the body has to eliminate toxins is through perspiration and sweat through the pores. But also, because sports make organs like the lungs have greater capacity and work efficiently. Beyond the fatigue that this activity can cause you, you will realize that many of the symptoms will disappear. This will be seen in the state of your skin , in which you will lose weight and in which you will feel perfect in general lines.
During the night, the body takes advantage of being in bed to recover and replenish energy. It is important that you sleep between seven and eight hours per day. Respect the time you go to sleep and the time you get up. The lack of rest will make the bodies in charge of detoxifying you tired and with a large amount of cortisol, the well-known “stress hormone”. This is precisely what generates or even aggravates the level of intoxication.
If you keep the joy, smile, relax and learn to be grateful, you will also be eliminating the negative of your life. It may sound spiritual and holistic, however, it is proven that happiness takes us away from bad habits such as alcohol abuse, fast food, sweets or salty snacks.
