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!
