What Will A Body Detox Program Do For Me?

Feb 10, 2008
You see them all over TV and the internet. "The only way to detox is the new blah blah blah." People talk about how a natural body detox changed their life. But do these detox programs really work, or are they just scams? What will they do for me?

Let's spend a minute talking about the environment we live in. Modern civilization puts us in constant contact with toxins everyday. From the air we breathe to the food we eat, toxins build up in our body faster than our livers and other organs involved in a whole body detox can carry the out. We begin to show symptoms of toxicity, such as allergies, depression, weight problems, and aches and pains, just to name a few. We don't know where they come from or how they got there, but we deal with this stuff everyday.

Sometimes even more severe health problems come from increased toxins in your body over a longer period of time. Some of these include infertility, arthritis, lupus and asthma. We're not talking about heredity here. Some problems are due to your genes and won't be changed by a natural body detox. So knowing the difference will be helpful in knowing what to expect of a body detox program.

So what are some of the benefits of a body detox program? Well, for one, you will have increased energy because your organs will not be so busy trying to remove all that junk from your body. But what else?

faster metabolism
less hunger pangs
more restful sleep
stronger immune system
glowing skin
positive thoughts and a clear head
fewer cravings for unhealthy food

These are the most common benefits of a total body detox. Your results may vary depending on what kind of toxicity you were suffering from to begin with. Like many medications, a body detox program has some side effects from all these toxins traveling through and out of your body. They are usually most prevalent in the first couple of days, which is why it is important you have some free time when you start your whole body detox. Be on the lookout for these side effects:

fatigue
headache
itchy skin or pimples
indigestion and/or gas
mucus from your sinuses or bronchial passages
constipation or diarrhea
anxious or irritable disposition
bad breath
dark urine
trouble concentrating or confusion
joint or muscle pain

Sounds serious, huh? Don't worry, most people don't suffer all those side effects and they are very short lived. When doing a whole body detox for the first time, you will experience a few of these as the toxins leave your body. Don't let them deter you from doing what's right for you! Besides, you probably experience these a lot of the time anyway due to the toxicity in your body right now. Before doing a total body detox, it would be advisable to talk to your doctor to make sure that you are not going to complicate any conditions such as diabetes. With the help of your physician, you can have a safer, healthier detoxification.
