Learn More about Detoxification

Detoxification, more commonly known as “detox” is a process of clearing toxins from the body.  Many of these toxins come from diet, medication, and environmental exposure. The toxins stimulate the formation of harmful free radicals, that scientists now believe cause premature aging, degeneration, chronic ailments and decay. 

Do you need to detox?  Check out the nine most common signs that indicate that you should do a body detox to restore and rejuvenate your health…

1. You feel lethargic
2. You can’t lose weight
3. You feel irritable
4. Your skin is breaking out
5. You are often constipated
6. You have puffy eyes
7. You are bloated
8. You are suffering from food addiction
9. You are suffering from multiple symptoms (like brain fog, digestive problems, fatigue, headaches and allergies.)

If you have many, or even all, of these symptoms, don’t be alarmed, it’s not uncommon.  There are a variety of ways to detox, one of them is a foot detox. See future blogs for more information regarding detoxification and some of the benefits. Contact Gilead for more information about a foot detox or with any questions. 517-319-5818
