Make sure you cut out toxic nasty chemicals from your environment, especially those going onto your skin that are going to cause a greater burden to your system. Choose your toxins wisely my teacher once said… You can;t have the whole cake and eat it, or whatever that saying is… So here’s how to control your toxic load…
1. Throw away chemical cleaning products and opt for naturally derived ones you can find at the supermarket easily like Ecover.
2. Invest in natural cosmetics, make up and toiletries as they go on your skin and directly into your bloodstream. You shouldn’t put anything on your skin you wouldn’t put in your mouth! Oh and that includes sunscreen – these are full of the worst toxic chemicals. Stay out of the sun and invest in a natural sunscreen – there are many online… Organic products preferably but 100% natural is good! Fluoride free toothpaste is a good place to start!
3. Get rid of plug in chemical scents, oudourisers or sprays – unless sits a natural essential oil or candle – get rid!
4. Try alcohol free beers, wines and drinks… They often taste just as good (bad!) and you can trick your mind into thinking its the real deal by telling it! Honestly!
5. Stop using plastic to store your food, aluminium to cook in and non-stick pans – these are all highly toxic and majorly disruptive to the hormone and immune system. Out with the old, invest in new!
6. Read the food labels! If you don’t recognise it – its probably not natural… If its got E numbers, its not healthy… If theres loads of sugars that saturate, its not gonna feel good… If there are weird sounding chemical like words, they are probably chemicals… Organic is best!
