Symptoms Of A Toxic Body
When we think of toxins, we typically think of poisons that aren’t just harmful but deadly. However, there are many foods we eat and smells we breathe that our experience tells us is okay, but our body shows signs of discomfort when certain chemicals enter our body. You may not think you’re allergic to a particular type of food, but just because you don’t break out in hives does not mean your body is thanking you for what may be the cause of your chronic pain, itchy skin, upset stomach, or your cranky mood. The most common signs that indicate you would benefit from a detox program are if you’re suffering any of these symptoms:
- Excess Gas
- Joint Pain
- Tonsil Stones
- Sore Muscles
- Hormonal Imbalances

Every detox situation is different depending on your environment and eating habits. With so many ways to trigger your organs into expelling the built-up toxins in your system the best way to start detoxifying is to stop eating processed foods and only eat fruits, vegetables, dairy, and protein.

How Can A Chiropractor Help With Detox?
Done appropriately, detoxification is usually an uncomfortable process because it can sometimes cause flu-like symptoms such as coughing, excess gas, and bad breath, but what’s happening is the toxins are being expelled naturally; your body is relieving trapped toxins as these foul smells and skin breakouts. After a couple of days, your body begins to feel better and mental clarity returns stronger than it once was. A chiropractor is known to help realign your spine so that your nervous system and digestive tract are functioning at optimal performance so that detoxification can continue. A spinal adjustment releases these trapped toxins and can help you accelerate the detoxification process for a quicker recovery. If you’re looking for ways to detoxify your body, then its vital that you put a chiropractor on your shopping list.
