Detoxing

Detoxing

“Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines or continue the errors”

-Jim Rohn

Detoxing is an ongoing practice. Nowadays we are exposed to so many pollutants that it can seem overwhelming. I live in Northern California where all the fires raged last fall and experienced first hand what toxic chemical filled air is all about. Seriously we all had to wear masks before going outside and many people I know invested in air filters because it was so bad. There is also the water to worry about…I know it is a pain but putting a filter system on your kitchen sink so you can drink pure clean water that is free of chlorine and all the other chemicals is not only a good idea but can be a cost effective one too because you will never have to purchase plastic bottles of water again which do not break down and adds to our land fill problems not to mention exposes us to harmful plastic that is hormone disruptive.

Then there are all the personal care products we use that are often swimming in chemicals. The USA has a very poor record of safety standards in this area and I highly recommend visiting the ewg.org site to see how what you are using rates. You will probably be very surprised.

Our cars, new carpet or building materials can off gas with harmful chemicals and our new furniture that is covered in flame retardant can be dangerous. Then there’s mold and gas fumes….I could go on but you get the picture.

We live in a toxic world and we need to finds ways to navigate this.

What we eat truly matters more than ever.

The good news…Yes finally some good news here. People are waking up and companies are offering more and more clean, organic and safer products for us to choose and choose we must. Its time to vote with our dollars.

Become a regular at your local farmers market or join a CSA and support an organic farm.

You will feel better, look better and be better for it.
