3 Easy Ways to Tell If Your Body Is Toxic And The One Way To Reverse It
A toxic body is not healthy. It is a body ridden with symptoms, colds, migraines, excess fat and disease. There are three signs that indicate your body is toxic and the best ways to improve health.
One of the best ways to improve health is to pay attention to the signs your body gives you. Just like the signs on a road, your body directs you to care for it if you’re paying attention and, if you empower yourself to know what your body needs in order to thrive.
You might compare your body to a car, and your nervous system to its battery. If the battery is well charged and the wiring is good, your car will have plenty of spark, bright lights and an efficient starter. However, if the car battery is low, the spark is poor and the lights are dim and the starter is weak -- or too low that the car cannot run with the lights burning out at the same time. This is toxemia.
Toxemia, or being toxic, means having poisoned blood. The more toxins the body harbors the less able it is to function well. Being toxic is a chronic state due to excessive lifestyle habits and eating. Your body learns to tolerate toxins just as it learns to tolerate cigarettes and alcohol, though as a result, your body is weaker for it. When toxins in your body rise above your toleration point, you will start to get colds (the body trying to clean itself), perhaps the flu and ultimately disease.
Your body is governed by many systems. One system is the nervous system. This where your nerve energy is stored. Surprisingly, your body isn't capable of generating an unlimited supply of nervous energy and according to science, gets fatigued. Just as a low battery means poor sparks, dim lights and a useless starter, so does a lack of nervous energy in your body lower the efficiency of your organs – your digestion becomes impaired, you may have constipation -- this is called enervation. Another word for enervation is being fatigued or drained. By the time you feel fatigued you are fatigued at a cellular level, which means your cells are tired too. Fatigue always impairs human function.
You become drained by excesses of all kinds -- any act, habit indulgence or influence that uses up your body’s nerve energy excessively, such as overwork, emotional, physical and physiological stress, overeating, over-stimulation, being too hot or too cold, over-dressing, lack of sleep, worry, fear, anger, jealously, grief, lack of exercise and lack of sunlight. It’s next to impossible to find only one excessive cause. These are by far, not the best ways to maintain health.
Migraines, otherwise known as hemicranial headache, bilious headache and blind-headache is a form of painful headache that is usually confined to, or predominates on, one side of the head. This obstinate condition has caused as much genuine misery and recurrent disability as any other single ailment of nature. Some believed causes of migraines are digestive disturbance, menstruation, worry, overeating and drinking, intense mental stress, and eye strain. However, the real cause of migraine is invariably and almost without exception, toxemia.
You may believe you can “catch a cold, but colds aren’t contagious, they’re internal” according to Herbert Shelton. MD, the father of Natural Hygiene. Generally, a cold can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks. However, on average, a cold will typically last three or four days. Despite popular belief and according to science, colds are self-limited, and therefore, almost anything it seems, can be “the cure” for a cold, even chicken soup.
Truth be told, a cold will run its course weather you medicate it or not. What I mean to say is, no cure for a cold is generally needed. A cold is a curative process. It is your body trying to clean house of toxins – this is why you get a runny nose, and this is why you may be coughing and expelling mucus, or why you may go to the bathroom frequently – the body wants the toxins out.
What’s more, a cold should not be suppressed or cut short. It should be allowed to complete its purification work by running its course. Of course there are things you can do naturally for a cold that’s helpful, such as hydrating with liquids like broths, teas and getting adequate rest. In colds that last longer, these natural treatments only prove their true worth.
