Three Things You Can Do to Lighten Your Toxic Load Today

We’re exposed to countless toxins every day, from sources we may not even realize. A toxin is any substance that places undue stress on your body. Toxic load is the sum of these substances accumulated within the body and the burden they place on organs.

If you feel burdened—weighed down—by toxins, the simplest solution is to lighten your toxic load. Anytime a new toxin is introduced to your body and space, your toxic load grows heavier, and it becomes more difficult for your body to filter these burdens. Conversely, anytime you remove a toxin from your life, your toxic load grows lighter, giving your body a better chance of filtering and fighting off other toxins you encounter.

Here are three easy things you can do today to start reducing your toxic load.

1. Drink more water. If you feel like your toxic load is too intense for your body right now, consider upping your water intake. While you’ll need to evaluate the kinds of toxins you’re putting on or in your body and adjust, you can flush a lot of toxins out simply by drinking water. If you struggle to stay hydrated, motivate yourself with a cute water bottle with a straw or put a reminder in your phone that goes off several times a day.

2. Ditch and switch. One of the easiest ways to reduce toxin exposure is reevaluating what’s lurking in your cabinets. Everyday products—perfumes, skincare lotions, and more—can be culprits contributing to your toxic load. Cleaning products with harsh chemicals and fumes can be especially problematic. Switching to a safer, natural cleaning routine can make a big difference.

3. Move more. Your body has an incredible filtration system that helps protect you against toxins. But when the filtration system is overloaded, you start exceeding the toxin threshold your body can handle. Taking care of your body—moving, sweating, exercising—is a great way to strengthen it so it can properly handle toxins. Exercise makes the body’s natural defenses more resilient so you’re better equipped to deal with toxins that come your way.
