Is good health about being lucky or is it making good choices? I’ve come to realize it’s all about good choices. There was a time I thought all I needed to do to be healthy was eat organic and exercise but oh my goodness it is so so much more. The air inside the average American home is 2-5x more toxic than the air inside. Let me say it again: the air inside the average American home is 2-5x more toxic than the air outside. Now think about our children breathing that air. Are you a stay at home mom or work from home mom? Your odds of getting cancer are double those of someone who works outside of the home. Most people wonder why disease rates are skyrocketing and I feel like I’m over here jumping up and down. ‘I know, I know!!’
The products you use every day determine what your health and that of your family will look like in the future. PERIOD. It’s a hard pill to swallow but knowledge is power. I ran out of dish soap the other day and decided to buy some from the supermarket. It was a nightmare. I went to 2 different supermarkets before I found one that wasn’t harmful and it wasn’t the Mrs. Meyers of the world. Stop and take a look at the products you are using every day. Turn the bottle around and look at the ingredients. Does it even state the ingredients? In the U.S.A., companies are allowed to keep their ingredients off the bottle. What are they hiding?
What can you do to protect your family? This month, make a commitment to begin to swap your products for clean alternatives. This is especially important if you are already suffering. Diabetes, Lupus, Autism, and Cancer… do you know what they all have in common? A body overloaded with toxins that cannot handle what has been introduced and so has begun to attack itself. Take back your power. Pick a room in your house and each month begin the swap. Instead of purchasing from Target or CVS, make a choice for health. Start with your children: order shampoo, soap, toothpaste, and lotion. Start with the kitchen: order dish soap, fruit spray, and dishwasher powder. Start with the laundry room: laundry detergent, dryer balls. Here’s the thing, just START. Don’t wait any longer, start today.
