How Can You Tell If You’re Toxic?

Posted by healthylivingtoday on February 14, 2008

Are you reading lots of information about detoxing but aren’t sure if this is something you need to do? An in-depth look into your lifestyle can reveal wonders. From where you live to what you buy, from what you do for a living to what you put in your body – your everyday choices often dictate your risk.

Dr. Holly Lucille, a naturopathic physician, provides a survey on www.KCRA.com which can give you some insight as to how toxic you might be. Dr. Lucille provides a 10-question quiz that can help you determine, based on these choices, where you fall within the different levels of toxicity- from non-toxic and on the right track to highly toxic and in need of some internal intervention.

We agree with the basic concepts in the article and think it is a great introduction to the idea of body cleansing. Remember that detoxification is an on-going process; a two-week cleanse is often only the starting point. The most important part of detoxification is to change your diet. Replace packaged and fast foods with whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables. Buy organic whenever possible. Also cut back on caffeine, alcohol and salt. In addition, you may need to make lifestyle changes in order to keep yourself free from toxins.
