When your body is full of toxins it would lead to several health issues such as; headaches, acne, fatigue, insomnia and depression.
The toxins in your liver are also responsible for your belly fat and weight gain.
Your liver performs two very important functions -- it metabolizes fat and detoxifies your blood, so if it is fatty and overworked then you are more than likely to gain weight as well as experience a number of other health problems.
Fat cells release toxins especially when you are stressed, this can cause cellular damage as well as a proliferation of toxins that will overwhelm your liver and cause it to malfunction.
Toxins can also be stored in your muscle tissues, nervous tissues and brain tissues and may be released when you are under stress.
According to Dr. Paula Baillie-Hamilton we are having weight gain issues because our body’s natural weight regulation mechanism has been poisoned and it is under tremendous strain because of toxic chemicals.
These toxic chemicals we are exposed to according to her are every day household products like cleaning, skin care and food products.
She has written a book entitled -- The Detox Diet –Eliminate Chemical Calories and Enhance Your Natural Slimming System, where she stated that there is a correlation between toxic synthetic chemicals and the obesity epidemic.
Toxins will inhibit the proper functioning of the liver and it will therefore be unable to properly burn fat.
You can detoxify your body and naturally eliminate harmful toxins from it. In so doing you will also burn out the fat which stores up these toxins.
