We live in a toxic environment with many chemicals from fast food additives, body care ingredients, home cleaning products, cigarette smoke, pesticides and car fumes can accumulate in the body and cause toxin overload. This build-up of toxins affects the normal functioning of numerous body systems and causes the following symptoms:
Signs of Liver Toxicity
Feeling tired is one of the signs that a person needs to detoxify. This is especially so if the fatigue constant and is not relieved by sleep.
Unexplained headaches can also be caused by a toxic state in the body and can be a sign of liver toxicity. These toxin-related headaches are usually persistent and often felt right above the eyes.
Chronic constipation is another liver toxicity symptom. Constipation should be taken very seriously because if the toxins cannot leave the body, they can be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream and lead to the development or worsening of other symptoms like headaches and fatigue.
Brain fog, which is also known as mental fog, is another symptom of a person who has liver toxicity. This clouding of the consciousness that creates confusion, can be caused by a fungus known as Candida which overwhelms the normal gut bacteria and causes a leaky gut.
Inability to Lose Weight
Not losing weight despite working out often and cutting calories to the core, can also be a sign of liver toxicity. This is due to the fact that some toxins cause hormonal imbalances which slow down the metabolism, making the liver sluggish, and making it hard to lose weight.
Cravings and especially cravings of processed foods and sugary drinks like sodas, is another liver toxicity symptom. Detoxification cuts the consumption of those processed foods which trigger the release of dopamine and thereby make a person “feel good” and want more of those foods.
Moodiness is another manifestation of liver toxicity. Mood fluctuations are often caused by processed foods which cause blood sugar highs that are followed by drastic drops. Other emotional signs of too many toxins in the body include depression, anxiety and excessive anger.
Excessive toxins in the body can also disrupt the natural sleep cycle and keep a person tossing at night instead of sleeping peacefully. Often sleeplessness happens between 1 and 3 am when the liver is very active.
Persistent and unexplained joints pains may also be another method that the body uses to show signs of liver toxicity. Waking up feeling sore without a good reason is another clue that inflammation causing toxins need to be eliminated from the body.
50 million Americans suffer from 80 different autoimmune disease, which is often caused by a toxic environment.
Bad breath which is not relieved by good overall oral hygiene is another sign of liver toxicity. This is form of halitosis is often associated with a yellowish coat on the tongue.

Stop the flow of toxins into your body and liver and increase the flow of toxins out of your body and liver. Watch your body blossom into a self-regulating and self-repairing dream machine.
