Toxicity is a challenge for everyone these days, regardless of age.
Even the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) agrees. See their handout.
Our bodies can only take so much stress and toxic overload before they begin to break down faster than they can heal. Even when it is pushed too far, the body still does its best to minimize the damaging effects of these burdens.
Whatever toxins the body can't release, it will tend to store in fat and deeper tissues that help protect more susceptible cells and functions from harm.
But every single day our bodies are exposed to new toxins:
- Air pollution
- Contaminated water
- Pesticides and herbicides used on conventional and GMO crops
- Processed foods and beverages
- Common household materials
- Electromagnetic radiation
- Heavy metals like mercury, aluminum, lead, and cadmium
- Industrial chemicals that have been released into our environment
- Any much more,,,
The question is: Can our bodies flush out toxins faster than they accumulate them, so we can stay healthy? Or have they just become toxic storage units, too exhausted to do more than survive?
Want to have a better sense of the answers in your body?
Take a Toxic Overload Questionnaire
Our questionnaire below is by no means definitive, but it provides a window into some common symptoms and lifestyle factors that indicate a heavy toxic burden.
Left unaddressed, these conditions will rob the body of vital energy and lead to increasing signs of chronic degeneration, such as:
- Headaches and stiff joints
- Skin issues and hormonal imbalances
- Cognitive decline
- Changes in mood and emotional expression
- Allergies, sinus issues, and poor immune function
- Premature aging
- Genetic damage
- Various cancers
But there is great hope for recovery, and our bodies will always give 100% of whatever resources they have available. Each of our jobs is to give our bodies what they need to do their daily work, and to stay out of the way of healing by removing stressors and detrimental habits.
Curious to see if toxicity might be holding you back from your full potential? Take our short quiz and find out.
If you score more than 14 on the entire survey or 10 in any given section, chances are strong that you are suffering from toxic accumulations in your system. A Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis is highly recommended to find out the exact nature of your body's cellular imbalances.
You may also eat to consider a 15-Day Metabolic Cleanse, designed specifically to help correct the symptoms on this survey and bring your body back toward balance.
