At Hope4Cancer, we discuss detoxification quite a bit — in fact, it’s one of our seven key principles of non-toxic alternative cancer treatment and an important aspect of our holistic approach to healing. We’ve explored what toxins are and why detoxification is critical. So it’s natural for you to wonder: Is my body toxic?
Practically speaking, most of us have some form of toxins in our bodies. Modern living makes toxins challenging to avoid! We’re frequently exposed to toxins in everyday life — from chemicals in household cleaners and personal care products to workplace toxins and environmental sources, toxins are all too common.
Consider how many toxins you typically face in an average day. Should you detox? Answering these questions is a good place to start.
- What products does your personal care routine include?
Synthetic products are most likely to have toxic ingredients.
- How toxic is your workplace?
Factories and manufacturing facilities are most likely to contribute to toxins in our bodies.
- What about your home?
Consider lead paint, cleaning supplies, landscaping and gardening chemicals and more.
- What kind of area do you live in?
Urban dwellers are more likely to encounter smog, pollution and manufacturing toxins — but residents of rural areas are not immune, with the increase in toxins due to agricultural chemicals.
- What toxins do you encounter in your community?
Does your municipal water contain unsafe levels of toxins? How is the air quality in your area?
You might benefit from detoxification if you face some of the following symptoms:
- Constant fatigue:
Feeling tired even after a good night’s rest or lacking energy and drive
- Regular muscle and joint aches and pains:
Muscle aches unrelated to physical activity (like after a workout) or joint pain during everyday activities
- Weight you just can’t shed:
Changes in diet and regular exercise don’t result in weight loss
- Bad breath:
More than an annoying problem, it could be a symptom
- Constipation, bloating or IBS:
Digestive concerns that don’t resolve on their own
- Broken-out skin, rashes, acne, puffy eyes, eczema or psoriasis:
Skin concerns can be symptomatic of a toxic body
- Sensitivity to smells:
Unusual sensitivity to smells can be indicative of toxicity
- Arthritis or gout:
These conditions can arise due to toxins.
- Mental fatigue or “brain fog”:
Forgetfulness, confusion and inability to get your typical tasks accomplished
From a minor case of the blues to clinical depression, it could be a sign of toxicity
When facing a cancer diagnosis, detoxification becomes quintessential. When toxins build up in our bodies, they can contribute to cancer — this is why detoxification is such a key element at Hope4Cancer.
