Whether you realize it or not, you’re exposed to toxins daily. In some cases it’s beyond your control such as breathing in car exhaust or paint fumes. Sometimes we are harming ourselves with the products we wash our clothes in and the lotion we slather on our bodies. The point of this message is not to scare you, it’s to get you thinking.
The effects of a toxic body can show up in many ways. You may be constantly bloated. Maybe you get regular headaches or migraines. Perhaps you feel tired often. In short, being toxic does not make you feel good. At all.
So is there hope? Of course! I want to share five simple ways you can reduce the levels of toxins in your body:
1. Drink Detox Tea
Choose an herbal tea to help you cleanse your body from head to toe. I recommend Iaso Tea. It’s an organic blend of nine herbs focused on removing toxins, parasites and waste from the body. When you purchase from me, I provide detox plans along with the tea.
2. Change Your Diet
What are you eating? If you’re eating a lot of man-made, processed foods you should consider adding more whole foods to your diet. Whole foods are simply foods that are not processed.
So for example, an apple would be a whole food while applesauce would be a processed food. When I was in Weight Watchers, my meeting leader told us to shop on the perimeter of the grocery store. She said, “Stay out of those aisles!” Just take it a day at a time and add more whole foods to your diet.
3. Change Your Products
There are many natural alternatives for laundry detergent, cleaning products, and even health and beauty items such as lotion, toothpaste and bath soap.
Look for products in health food aisles, natural/organic markets and even online that are free from toxins, dyes and other irritants.
One sure way to tell how toxic a product is? Read the label. If you see a long list of things you can’t pronounce or identify (or a warning label about avoiding contact with your skin) you may want to look for a better alternative.
If a product makes you cough or nauseous, it’s time to look for something new.
4. Drink More Water
Here is an easy fix, but one that also requires a little guidance. All water is not created equal. If you regularly drink tap water, consider getting a filter. If you can afford it, choose high-quality spring or purified water. Not sure how much to drink? Use this guide as a resource:
5. Improve Your Air
If you have a little extra cash, consider buying a quality air purifier. Also consider what effects using plug in air fresheners, aerosol sprays and smoke may play in degrading the quality of air in your home.
I know a person who got headaches when she burned candles. You can still get a great smell in your house if you diffuse essential oils.
My mother used to put a pot on the stove with cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract and our house smelled like Christmas. I know some great blends, so feel free to ask me about my favorites.
I hope you found some value in this message. Let me know if you try any of these suggestions.
