BODY TOXICITY AND THE IMPORTANCE OF DRINKING PURIFIED WATER

Water bottle contaminants

If you’ve been feeling under the weather recently, it could be due to higher levels of toxins in your body caused by a variety of factors including consumption of contaminated water, food or from our modern lifestyle. Here you will find information on some of the causes and symptoms of high body toxicity and also learn of ways to detoxify your body and get your health and energy back.

Health symptoms

  • Problems with digestion
  • Chronic fatigue or severe tiredness
  • Thyroid issues
  • Skin rashes or irritations
  • Mental health conditions including anxiety and depression and even ADD or Autism
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Sugar imbalance in the blood/ Diabetes

CAUSES: Polluted water

  • Microbial concerns including bacteria and viruses
  • Chemicals and chemical byproducts
  • Heavy metals and inorganic minerals
  • Pharmaceuticals and drugs in water
  • Nanoparticles from industrial waste
  • Pollution in the air and environment

Drinking plenty of clean water is one of the most important steps in regaining your health. But you must consider drinking only purified water rather than tap water that might be at risk of contamination. Water that is contaminated may actually add to the toxicity levels in your body because there are numerous types of toxins that can potentially be found in tap, well or even bottled water. Installing a quality home water filtration system is a great way to remove many types of pollutants from your tap water. Drinking the recommended amount of clean purified water every day is important not only to rid your body of toxins, but also to maintain your overall health.

CAUSES: Contaminated food

  • Processed food
  • Genetically modified food
  • Food treated with pesticides or herbicides
  • Seafood from contaminated water sources
  • Meats treated with hormones, drugs, and antibiotics

Eating a more nutritious and balanced diet is also very important. If you’re consuming a lot of fast food and junk food that contains additives and other ingredients that aren’t necessary for the human body to survive on, you likely have a buildup of unnecessary toxins in your body. Try eating a more organic diet that is high in fiber which is more nutritious and will help you remove wastes (toxins) from your bowels more efficiently. Taking a daily vitamin supplement can also help you to rid your body of unnecessary toxins in your body. Make sure you take a natural supplement that doesn’t contain any other unnecessary ingredients like artificial flavors and other added ingredients.

CAUSES: Daily Lifestyle

  • Exercise-Free Sedentary Lifestyle
  • Air pollution from city, industries, cars
  • Sunlight exposure limited

Exercise plays another big role in the process of detoxification. If you live a rather stagnant life-style (no exercise at all) you may be at a bigger risk of health issues related to body toxicity. Doing at least 30 minutes of some sort of rigorous activity every day will help your body to rid itself of toxins through your sweat, and it also helps with your daily bowel movements, another way your body removes toxins. Getting 10-15 minutes of sun exposure a day is important. Sunlight helps your body produce vitamin D which is needed for proper calcium absorption. Calcium is very important for all aspects of human health. Getting plenty of fresh air is also very helpful. If you are a smoker or live in a highly polluted area, taking a trip to a location that offers fresh and unpolluted air at least once a week is recommended; walking around outside in the fresh air will give your body a chance to heal and rejuvenate itself in a oxygen rich, pollution-free environment. You might consider quitting smoking as well as moving to a less polluted area as well far from the pollution of the big city.

When you change your habits and decide to regain your health, consider purifying your drinking water which is one of the easiest and most important changes you can make to help detoxify your body and improve your health. When your body has been subjected to contamination from the many factors listed above you might be feeling some of the listed symptoms, all of them, or have even more symptoms that are causing you to feel much worse than you normally should. Detoxification is important and there are many resources you can find online that offer programs and special treatments in order to detoxify your body. Make sure that whichever program you choose is safe and ask your doctor prior to trying a new program.
