5 Reasons Detoxing is key if you have a Chronic Illness

I grew up in a small town and around us surrounded fields, those fields were always being sprayed. I never knew they could be so harmful, I just figured they wouldn’t be spraying chemicals in an environment where people lived that could harm them..right?? Well was I wrong! If they were spraying to keep bugs away, then what was it really doing to my insides if I was breathing it in.

So, if the body is already fighting against itself how much harder is it fighting to get rid of the other bad toxins entering the body. Bad toxins don’t just enter in from breathing it in, but also the foods we eat, the things we put on our skin and the chemicals we clean with daily. While you were cleaning have noticed you became light-headed, those are the harmful toxins that already entered into your body. These harmful toxins could be making you sicker than you already are.

Back in 2011, I was introduced to the Daniel Fast during these 21 days I allowed my body to get rid of unwanted toxins and feed it the food my body has been searching for. I noticed such a big change in energy, clarity, and weight. I was sold and shocked that it changed so much of me in 21 days. Once I started to put harmful things back into my body I noticed the sluggish feeling and my overall well-being changed. Wow! I was amazed how just some adjusts in my eating habits could make a big impact.

So I began to overthink like I always do and it came to me in order to stay on the right track I must continuously get rid of harmful toxins by living on a lifelong detoxification system. I already have an autoimmune disease and I’m making it worse by not getting rid of the extra toxins my body is trying to adjust too. So if you have a Chronic Illness like me why should you detox? Here are 5 reasons Why Detoxing is good for Chronic Illnessbelow :

  1. Environmental Chemicals-  You are already experiencing so my symptoms with the chronic illness you have, but when environmental toxins get in they came make you feel horrible and cause a full blown flare-up.
  2. Food- Many foods we eat have toxins, fast foods are not the only foods that can harm us, some are sitting in your pantry right now.
  3. Body Products- Yes, even the products we put on our skin carry toxins and we are using these things every day! Makeup, perfumes, lotions, even our deodorant…I know crazy right?
  4. Electronics and Cellphones- There are so many things we use every day with radiofrequency, but it’s linked to many diseases.
  5. Cleaning Products- Many products we clean with have harmful toxins, it’s very important to always read labels.

So many things are harmful to us, so being able to rid those toxins are key. What are some things you can do?

  1. Drink Detoxifying Teas/Water- There are so many tea companies these days that provide you with a way to detox your body. I usually buy a detox tea and drink at least one a day just to feel a little better.
  2. Fruits & Veggies- 21-day detox that focuses on feeding your body what it needs and slowly work on changing your diet. ( if you are spiritual like me you can do the Daniel Fast he fasted for 10 days and 21 days)
  3. Body Scrubs- Scrubbing away harmful toxins, you can either buy from a store or create your own.

 

The detox world is really growing and it provides you with many ways to detoxify your body. Can you imagine how many toxins we carry around a day? Detoxing will allow you to feel so much better, and get rid of toxins as they come in. Chronic Illness already brings enough trouble we don’t need other things making us feel worse.

    Hi there, Shawna! Yes, it’s so true that we need to be aware of the chemicals we eat in our food, use for cleaning with and what we put on ourselves is doing our bodies much harm. I started making my own skin care products including deodorant, a few years ago. Plus I fast no more than three times a year following Dr. Jordan Rubin’s plan from the Maker’s Diet Revolution. A good cleanse does wonders for the body.
    Keep on doing what you’re doing Shawna! Blessings to you!
