Toxin Build Up in Body, The Causes and The Warning Signs

Daily exposure to 80,000 chemicals causes toxin build up in the body. Toxic chemicals are in personal products and cleaning supplies. These dangerous ingredients cause a build-up of toxins in the body and create health problems.

Long-term exposure can create life-threatening conditions. There is hope if you suspect your body is fighting a toxin overload.

Know the warning signs that your body is full of toxins and read the 12 signs of a toxic body below.

1. Skin Changes

Oily skin, acne, and irritations are signs of toxin build up. Severe conditions like psoriasis and eczema point to inflammation in the body. Inflammation often accompanies toxin overload.

If you experience these symptoms, a toxin detox helps rid your body of the overabundance of toxins. It also helps decrease inflammation.

2. Digestive Issues 

Pay attention to changes in your bowel movements. Constipation and diarrhea are two common changes that indicate underlying issues.

Your digestive system is imperative to rid toxins from your body. So, what are toxins in the body?

Toxins are tiny particles of dangerous chemicals in the environment, food, and personal care/home products. If your gut cannot rid your body of these chemicals, it leads to toxin build up.

Keep a log of digestive changes. Compare symptoms over time and share them with your doctor.

3. Brain Fog

Brain fog creates feelings of confusion, forgetfulness, and frustration. Life is full of things to remember. This is normal to a degree.

If you feel foggy or less clear in your thoughts, it might be a sign of toxin buildup.

4. Extreme Fatigue

Do you feel more tired than usual? Feeling “heavy” is a common symptom of toxin overload.

Fatigue from toxins feels different than normal tiredness. If you cannot perform routine tasks and feel extreme exhaustion, listen to your body.

Schedule testing for heavy metals and toxins to rule out toxin buildup. If you have build-up, a holistic doctor helps your body get back on track.

5. Hair Loss

Experiencing extreme hair loss or thinning is another common sign of toxin buildup.

On average, you lose 50-100 hairs a day. Changes in your hair are scary to experience.

If you notice hair loss and other toxicity symptoms, it’s time to see a doctor.

6. Brittle Nails

Cracked, brittle nails indicate your body is deficient in important nutrients or under stress.

Toxins prevent your body from absorbing vital nutrients and affect your nails, skin, and hair.

Pay attention to these symptoms if your nail structure changes.

7. Bad Breath

One of the worst side effects of toxin overload is bad breath. Bad breath impacts your self-esteem and social life.

Your gut helps filter out toxins in your body. But, if it cannot do so because of toxin build up, foul-smelling breath can be a side effect.

8. Joint Pain 

An active individual experiences muscle soreness from time to time. This type of muscle pain dissipates within 2-3 days.

Constant muscle or profound, aching joint pain might point to something more serious.

9. Difficulty Sleeping

Sleep is restorative to your body. It is your body’s way of regenerating and healing.

If you suffer from toxin buildup, your body’s ability to function breaks down.

Experiencing chronic fatigue and poor sleep is a serious issue. Talk to a doctor who understands the body from the inside out. They can get your sleep and health back on track.

10. Migraines

Headaches are the worst! They interfere with your productivity and make you feel awful.

Frequent headaches or migraines occur in people who suffer from toxicity. Detoxing your body from toxins leads to fewer headaches and a better quality of life.

11. Weight Gain

Weight gain is an overwhelming thing to deal with.

A holistic doctor understands the underlying causes of sudden weight gain. With their help, you can rule out or diagnose toxic overload.

12. Anxiety & Depression

The most alarming symptom of toxin build up affects your mental health. Anxiety and depression are severe conditions.

Getting help for your mental well-being is of utmost importance. You do not have to suffer alone or in silence.
