20 Reasons to Detox in 2020
There are way more than 20 reasons to detox, but since it’s 2020, we’ll stick with the theme.
Elizabeth Tringali PA-C discusses how our liver detoxes in length in her article, Liver Detoxing: Why Do It?, but below we have compiled a list of 20 more reasons why detoxing is so beneficial to your health.
1. Support Your Immune System
People are exposed to countless toxins on a daily basis through the foods they eat and the air they breathe. By removing and eliminating these toxins and then feeding the body with healthy nutrients, detoxification can support a strong immune system and renew our ability to maintain optimum health.
2. Reduces Inflammation
When you detox, you flush those accumulated toxins, allowing your inner organs to work according to their functions. When all those toxins start to decrease, the process of healing begins, thereby reducing inflammation.
3. Clears Your Body of Heavy Metals
Heavy metal poisoning is caused by the accumulation of certain metals in the body’s soft tissue due to exposure through food, water, industrial chemicals, or other sources. Removing heavy metals through detox protocols is often recommended by physicians for a variety of health reasons.
4. Stabilizes Mood
Effective detoxification will assist in stabilizing your mood and calming anxiety. Depending on your method, detoxing helps to balance blood sugar levels or calm the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a calmer state of body and mind.
5. Eliminates Your Body of Toxins
By removing toxins and then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.
6. Helps Combat Chronic Disease
During treatment for chronic illness, the body may begin to accumulate toxic waste that needs to be removed. Any detoxification method can assist in removing these toxic wastes, which are caused by any number of things such as bacterial die off to toxin accumulation via medications.
7. Reduces Pain
Pain can be caused by inflammation, lactic acid, or even the build-up of fluid around the joints. A regular detox regimen assists in reducing inflammation, eliminating lactic acid, and increasing circulation and oxygenation to assist in the evacuation of fluid build-up caused by edema, which adds unnecessary pressure to joints and nerve endings.
8. Helps You to Lose Weight
We have been programmed to believe that losing weight is as simple as counting calories, eating less, and exercising more. Of course, the types of food you eat and the number of calories you ingest affect your weight and energy levels. Detoxing removes sugars and food toxins from your system, and it helps fight off inflammation and bloating.
9. Assists with Nutritional Upload
Toxins block the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Partaking in a regular detox protocol will clear your system of toxins and allow you to absorb necessary nutrients for optimal health.
10. Detoxifies the Liver and Kidneys
Your liver and kidneys have a big job to do because they are key players in processing and detoxifying your body of all the toxins you eat, breathe, and accumulate every single day. In order to function at optimal levels, these organs should be cleansed and cleared for maximum detoxification functionality.
11. Slows Aging
A good healthy detoxification is known to slow the aging process by lowering the rate of cellular decay.
12. Reduces Body Odor
Heavy metals, mold, and even bacteria that has died and not been properly flushed from your system all cause a change in the way your body smells. Ridding your body of toxins results in an overall reduction in body odor.
13. Enhances Performance
Detoxing can lead to increased stamina, improving all areas of performance in your life: work, workout, sex. When you detox, you eliminate toxins (including sugar)that create hormonal imbalances and wreak havoc on your metabolism, resulting in a healthier libido and sex life.
14. Improves Your Skin
Your skin is a reflection of your inner health. Diet and environmental toxins have an effect on the appearance of your skin. When your body is healthy, free of toxins, and absorbing nutrients, you will see marked improvements to the appearance of your skin.
15. Boosts Energy
Most people are plagued with some level of fatigue at certain points in their lives. Whether you are feeling a general sluggishness or suffering from chronic fatigue as a result of illness, removing excess toxins can assist in increasing energy levels.
16. Improves Your Sleep
During the beginning stages of detoxing, people will often experience an increase in sleep problems as the body rids itself of toxins and clears its inner pathways. Those who work past that initial healing crisis, go on to experience deeper, more restful sleep which, in turn, promotes overall wellness.
17. Sharpens Your Thinking
Toxins and free radicals that accumulate in the body can also affect brain function. By removing the accumulations interfering with your mental and emotional state, you will open yourself up to better sleep, clear thought, and positive energy.
18. Keeps your Liver Working Well
When your liver’s function is improved and your metabolism is boosted, your body will eliminate drugs and alcohol more efficiently.
19. Optimizes Your Body
When you detox, you feel better! You wake up feeling vital, vibrant, alive, joyful, and full of energy. A simple detox program will help you eliminate the general symptoms of toxicity like fatigue, brain fog, achiness, digestive issues, allergies, and headaches.
20. Balances the Body
The best way to reset your life is with a detox. Self-care — like meditation, a little exercise, adequate sleep, healthy food — works to reboot your body and mind.
