When you hear the word detox a number of therapies and diets may come to your mind. While some may think about some herbal concoctions, others may think about foods they have to start avoiding. For those who are unaware of what a detox can do, you should know that a good detox program can help you achieve great mental, physical, emotional as well as spiritual benefits through a thorough cleanse.

The body needs a detox because with time, the system can get run down because of the unhealthy foods, alcohol, caffeine, drugs, stress and environmental toxins that we have become accustomed to. When the body is placed under so much stress, the organs cannot function properly and that’s when we become susceptible to stress. One needs to take time to nurture the body and vital organs to prevent disease.

Here’s how you know that your body needs a detox
1. You feel overwhelmed, fatigued and stressed
2. You have a lack of mental clarity and have headaches often
3. You experience skin breakouts, blemishes and have tiered and lack luster skin
4. You are more susceptible to bugs, viruses, flus and colds and tend to pick up medication
5. You experience uncomfortable, irregular and troublesome digestion issues
6. Unhealthy food choices have become a norm. You’d rather eat processed and fried foods that choose healthy alternatives.
7. You are addicted to coffee, drugs, alcohol or cigarettes
8. You may be exposed to various environmental toxins such as cigarette smoke, pesticides, household chemicals, artificial fragrances and carbon emissions
9. You are carrying too much body weight
10. You feel depressed, lack energy, have lost your zest for life and feel emotionally unstable

A holistic and natural detox is a must if you suffer from these signs. Be sure to speak with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist or get in touch with a Homeopath to learn how you can make changes to your lifestyle and choose a good detox program for a good and healthy life.
