Do you wake up feeling lethargic, and your complexion lacklustre and looking in need of a holiday? If this sounds familiar, detoxing may well be the answer. Our always-on-the-go lifestyles demands us to maintain high energy levels, which for many of us will prompt copious intake of coffee, sugar and fast energy boosts. For many of us, spending time to ensure we have consumed the essential 5-a-day, is not on top of our to-do list.
Unfortunately, quick caffeine and sugar fixes don’t help for long, compounding and prolonging the ultimate bloated and lethargic state. Here are 6 reasons detoxification can change your life for the better.
1. Cleanse the system
We are often oblivious to the toxins we ingest on a daily basis. Over time, these toxins build up within the body, which in turn makes us look and feel under par. Detoxing clears and cleanses the body of harmful toxins, allowing our bodies to begin the repair process.
The body is constantly repairing itself. However, external environmental factors, as well as internal ones, bombard our system, making it difficult for the body to effectively repair itself. By detoxifying, we are greatly supporting the process of self-repair.
3. Rejuvenate the skin
Detoxification enables rejuvenation of the entire system. This means that by detoxing for a couple of days, you will notice the difference in your skin’s complexion. Once you had rid your body from harmful toxins, your skin will appear clearer and more radiant. Could there be a better reason for detoxing?
There is no need to feel tired and listless, or even to reach for that extra coffee with a shot of espresso. Once you have completed your chosen detox method, your body will feel restored, and so too will your energy levels.
5. Overall health
Health cannot be overlooked. Hectic lifestyles insist we operate at optimum proficiency. It sometimes seems easier to get energy fixes – however these never work long term. By addressing the problem of a toxin overload, and choosing to detox, we can greatly enhance our performance and overall health.
6. Avoid disease
Many chronic diseases such as Cancer can be attributed to a build-up of toxins in the system. Clearing our system of these toxins can prevent the onset of serious illnesses.
