are you desperately in need of an internal spring clean?...

How can you tell that your body’s detoxification systems aren’t functioning as they should? Look out for the following symptoms:

» Premature ageing
» ‘Brain fog’, poor memory and concentration, headaches and migraines
» High blood pressure, fluid retention, palpitations
» A white-coated tongue, bad breath, indigestion, bloating and flatulence, nausea, intolerance of fats and rich foods, candidiasis, constipation / diarrhoea, pale stools, stools that float
» Reduced tolerance to alcohol, unexpected hangovers, abnormal reactions to recreational drugs, increase side-effects from medical drugs
» Mood swings, irritability, depression, anxiety, panic attacks
» Rhinitis and hayfever
» Erratic blood sugar levels leading to hypoglycaemia, ultimately causing sugar cravings, mood swings and energy drops / slumps.
» Easy weight gain, difficulty losing weight, fatigue, ME (chronic fatigue syndrome) symptoms, unusual body heat or flushing
» Gallstones, inflamed gallbladder, pain over the right upper abdomen
» Rheumatism and arthritis, fibromyalgia
» Hives, eczema, dermatitis, grey shadows under the eyes

Whilst some Naturopaths and other practitioners of complementary medicine suggest fasting during detoxification a less dramatic detox can be achieved with supplements. Always drink plenty of water whilst on any detox.
