Should You Do A Detox?

There are many diagnostics that you can use to determine toxic
overload, but here’s a simple and inexpensive way to do it. I picked
this up from Dr. Abbas Qutab after attending a lecture of his back in
2008. To see if you qualify for a detox, answer the following questions:
- Do you feel tired or fatigued?
- Do you experience early morning stiffness?
- Do you feel stiff after periods of rest?
- Do you feel dizzy, foggy-headed or have trouble concentrating?
- Do you experience cracking joints?
- Do you experience frequent back pain or headaches?
- Do you eat fast, fatty, processed or fried foods?
- Do you experience generalized aches and pains in the body?
- Do you experience frequent sinus problems?
- Do you use coffee, cigarettes, candy or soda to get “up”?
- Are you sleepy in the afternoon?
- Do you experience intestinal gas and bloating after meals?
- Do you bruise easily?
- Do you recover slowly from moderate exercise?
- Do you feel you don’t exercise enough or feel sluggish and need to lose weight?
- Do you have food allergies, or are often exposed to chemicals, sedatives or stimulants?
- Do you take pain relievers to get rid of aches and pains?
- Do you have a family history of arthritis or auto-immune disorders?
- Do your bowels move less than twice per day?
- Does “airing out” (opening windows) in your office/bedroom a few minutes each day make you feel better?
- Do you use regular municipal water (non-filtered) for your shower?
- Do you purchase food from the “normal” section of the grocery store, instead of buying organic fresh foods?
- Do you change/replace the filter for the heating/air conditioning only once a year?
- Have you thought about trying a cleansing program recently to rid your body of toxins?
If you answered “Yes” to 4 or more questions, your current symptoms may be due to toxic overload and a detox can help.
Tomorrow I’ll show you a one-week detox that I’ve used with many clients over the years. It’s simple to follow, works extremely well, and it’s not a juice fast!
