Symptoms of Toxicity

In the lead-up to my Lighten Up 7-Day Detox program, I’ve been sharing a lot lately about why it is important for us to detox and how to reduce your toxin exposure.

In these blog posts I’ve explained why the toxins we are exposed to every day lead to health issues, and why that makes it important for us to detox. I also shared specific information about the dangerous chemicals we are exposed to in our everyday life.

Today, I want to talk about the symptoms of toxicity, so you can assess whether you are carrying a toxic burden.

I know that I have definitely suffered from some of these symptoms myself- particularly headaches and brain fog.

Even now, with my very clean diet and healthy lifestyle, I still experience some of these symptoms- which is when I know I need to cleanse and detox so I can stop feeling so sluggish.

Living in a big city like Jakarta means it is almost impossible not to be exposed to chemicals and pollutants in the air- and these can have a serious impact.

Sometimes symptoms of toxicity can be quite non-specific and therefore hard to pin down.

We are all different genetically, so we react to toxins differently and at different dosage. Toxic exposure can manifest very differently in different people.

If you have systemic or atopic health issues that have been lingering for a while, it’s worth considering toxicity as the root cause.

Common symptoms of excessive toxic burden can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Cognitive problems: brain fog, memory problems
  • Neurological issues: balance problems, tremors

Although toxins don’t cause the following conditions, they do affect the expression of the symptoms, so lowering toxic load may help alleviate symptoms:

  • Allergy and asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Chemical sensitivity (any adverse physical, mental, or emotional reaction to the presence of a chemical smell)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fertility problems and birth defects
  • Parkinsonism
  • Bone marrow cancers – lymphomas, leukemia, multiple myeloma
  • Auto-immune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Hasimotos thyroiditis, etc.

If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, or are suffering from any of these diseases, then it might be time for you to consider doing a detox.

If the thought of doing a detox on your own is daunting and overwhelming to you- fear not! I have made the whole process super simple with my Lighten Up 7-Day Detox Program which starts on April 7.

I hope you will join us as together we start to cleanse our bodies of the toxic load it is burdening, and in turn, reduce inflammation, kick-start weight loss and improve energy levels.

  • I’d love to hear from you! Have you experienced any of the symptoms I have described in this post? Have you ever tried a detox to eliminate or reduce these symptoms.
