People are exposed to more than 8 million pounds of toxic chemicals in a year forcing the body's system to be affected in many ways. Here are seven warning signs of toxin overload that may be poisoning the body.

1. Constipation
Since bowel movements are the body's natural pattern of removing waste, not being able to secrete regularly will force the toxins to be reabsorbed into the bloodstreams. In addition, constipation may be combined with stomach upset, headaches, stomachache, stomach pains and tiredness.

2. Bad breath
Bad breath despite the constant brushing, rinsing, chewing gum or sucking on mints is an early warning sign of toxin overload. Foul breath may mean that the colon and liver are overloaded with toxins and cannot be eliminated properly, according to Natural News.

3. Muscle pain
Unexplained muscle aches and pain could be due to toxin overload which could have an immediate or delayed effect on muscles. Since some toxins stimulate pain receptors in the muscle, this may lead to muscle spasms, knots and general pain all over the body.

4. Insomnia
Bodies that are stressed due to toxin overload force cortisol levels to get out of control. Since cortisol is a hormone that helps the body deal with stress, an imbalance in cortisol levels may lead to difficulty sleeping at least eight hours a day.

5. Skin problems
Skin problems such as puffy eyes, boils, acne, rashes, eczema and psoriasis can all be early warning signs of toxin overload. When the liver gets toxin overloaded, the excess toxins will be removed through the skin on behalf of the liver.

6. Exhaustion and fatigue
Fatigue and exhaustion may be the body's response to hormone disruptors that are changing the body's immune system. A high toxic load also adds stress to the body that can be challenging to the body's adrenal glands leading to unexplained exhaustion, according to Life Hack.

7. Weight gain
Consuming unhealthy food does not only lead to excess in calories but it can also lead toxin overload. Toxins such as pesticides and dioxins become stored in the body as fat cells which increase body weight that may lead to overweight or obesity.
