Toxic Dream
A toxic dream is usually a very realistic, upsetting dream that is most likely to occur when your body's cleansing system is overloaded during sleep. They are often terrible nightmares and they signal that your body, mind, or emotions are in a toxic state. These dreams can result from a number of factors the day before, including:
  • Eating refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour), processed or junk food, additives or preservatives
  • Eating any foods within 2 hours before going to bed
  • Ingesting drugs or other substances that stress the body
  • Encountering environmental toxins (mold, exhaust fumes, etc.)
  • Being stressed (stress hormone by-products load the body's cleansing system just like external toxins do)
  • Being emotionally toxic, such as going to bed angry or hateful (holding on to emotional upset creates a stressful physical state)upset creates a stressful physical state)
  • Not getting enough rest (sleep-deprivation robs the body of its critical nighttime cleansing cycle, leaving more toxins in the body)
