It can also lead to disease in the form of cancer, arthritis, low sperm count, infertility, diabetes, allergies, and many other serious illnesses. When you eliminate the numerous toxins in your body, you will welcome each day feeling great – always ready to go!.
Toxins can be defined as substances that disrupt the normal healthy flow within our bodies. Unknown to us, we face an onslaught of toxins every day. In the past 20 years, we’ve seen more toxins enter our environment than ever before. Toxins lodge in cells, tissues and muscles until your body is completely overwhelmed as they build up overtime.
Sources of Toxins
It is important to understand why we are toxic and how we can eliminate it. To understand toxicity, you must understand the concept of “total load.” Total load is the total amount of stressors on your system at any given time. It is likened to what happens when a glass fills over with water.
It takes a certain amount of water to fill the glass and then, after a certain point, you put more in and it overflows. This happens to us when our detoxification organs (Liver, Kidney, Lung, and Skin etc) are overpowered, it gets overloaded. That’s when we start developing symptoms and getting sick, but it may take years of accumulated stress and toxins to get to that point.
The major sources of Toxins are:
1. Food and Beverages: The food we eat today are highly toxic. We eat a lot of processed and dead foods. Toxicity in our foods come from packaged food, food colourings, preservatives, chemical flavours like Aspartame and fast foods. More worrisome is the high intake of while flours and sugar, which makes the body to be acidic thereby creating an acidic environment were bacteria can flourish.
Also excess consumption of alcohol and caffeine are toxic to the body as the liver must work overtime to process these harmful substances and if your organs are not performing at their best(most people’s are not) the toxins will build up overtime.
2. Chemicals: Chemicals that are considered toxic are lurking in places we least expect them to be. The sources of toxins from chemicals are pesticides usually found on conventional produce that is freshly picked and unwashed found in grocery stores. Chemicals like Bisphenol A is found in plastics. Also prescription drugs, over the counter medicine and even recreational drugs all contain chemicals toxins that accumulate in the body overtime.
3. Air Pollution: The air we breath is highly polluted. Think of emissions from cars and lorries, smoking including second hand smoke, acid rain, factories, paint fumes, air freshners, and wide fire.
4. Water Pollution: Sources of water pollution includes water treatment chemicals like chlorine, heavy metals and chloroform, oil spills (especially those in the Niger Delta), animal waste, pesticides and fertilizers. How about human sewage, toxic garbage dumping in the ocean, the list continues.
5. Behavioral Factor: Stress leads to major toxic build up internally. The same is true of negative emotions like worry; anxiety and fear all contribute to toxins in the body.
6. Personal and Beauty care products – anti-bacterial soap, perfumes, creams, shampoos, lotions and other similar products have a range of toxins like artificial fragrance, Benzaldehyde, benzalkonium chloride and sodium laureth sulfate.
Sincerely, the list above is not exhaustive, there other sources of toxins in our not captured here, you can dig deep.
Symptoms of Toxins in the Body
The effects of toxins can vary according to the level of these harmful chemicals in the body. The results may also be different in individuals, based on the exposure to these chemical compounds.

Toxins will not only make you to gain weight but will also make your body to become resistant to weight loss, no matter how much you diet, exercise you cant just lose weight.
Gastrointestinal Tract Problem: The gastrointestinal tract is an important passage for the elimination of toxins from the body. Certain problems of the gastrointestinal tract can increase the levels of toxins in the body. Individuals who have a high amount of toxins will show symptoms like inflammation in the lining of the tract, constipation, hemorrhoids, stomach ulcers, pain in the abdominal region, and indigestion.
Infertility in Men and Women: A synthetic agent called xenoestrogens, which when enters the body tends to act like the female hormone, estrogen. This toxin can cause hormonal imbalances in women, leading to symptoms of endometriosis and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). In men, this toxin can decrease the sperm count by elevating the level of estrogen. This can explain the rise in infertility cases in men and women. The rate of low sperm count in Nigerian amongst men is alarming.
Inflammatory Conditions: Toxins, being foreign bodies, can trigger a series of inflammations. The white blood cells present in the body try to fight against these external factors. The inflammation can lead to various health related disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, heart diseases and arthritis. If an individual is already suffering from any of the above mentioned diseases, then the toxins present in the body can make this condition severe.
Skin Problem: The skin eliminates the toxins through the process of perspiration or sweating. At times, the pores in the skin get clogged with toxins, triggering many allergic reactions. These reactions can lead to a various skin related problems like rashes, psoriasis, acne and eczema.
Cognitive Problems: An overload of toxins can lead to many cognitive problems like loss of memory, mood swings and foggy thinking or unable to think clearly. An excess of toxins or overexposure to toxins can also cause symptoms similar to dementia, even in young people.

How about our children, you see a kid of 15 years looking 30 years old. These are simply the hand work of toxins in the body.
