We’re surrounded by toxic substances and chemicals.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), from inorganic pesticides on food items to tech devices and hottest new beauty items, chemicals are everywhere.
The fact is that most of these chemical substances, bisphenol A (BPA), formaldehyde, phthalates and some other toxic flame retardants, are easily assimilated into the body and are linked to weight problems, inability to conceive, bronchial asthma, cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
Harmful chemicals are particularly troubling for children, as their smaller bodies are still growing.
As it is out of the question that we can avoid chemicals completely, there are steps you can take to reduce your exposure to chemicals and the level of toxicity in your body.
“You can easily reduce the use of toxic chemicals if you’re taking good care about your diet choices,” said Rick Smith, author of “TOXIN TOXOUT.”
Try to eat fresh fruits, meat, vegetables and dairy to reduce the exposure to nasty inorganic pesticides and hormones. Natural and organic foods are produced or grown without the aid of inorganic pesticides or antibiotics.
Stop Thinking About “Detoxing”
There are many detoxes and cleanses plans available in the market, but they’re realistically not that good at removing harmful toxins, Smith said. Actually, his co-author, Bruce Lourie discovered that excessive sweating is more helpful than any detox plan at eliminating BPA – a human-made chemical substance found in plastics that is linked with a variety of health conditions.
Therefore, it is time to work up your sweat in the sauna or at the gym.
Try to Use Less and Better Cleaning Products
Many cleaning products and solutions are toxic to inhale and are specifically dangerous for kids
“You must realize that ‘clean’ comes with chemicals,” said Sonya Lunder, senior professional at EWG (Environmental Working Group). Sonya Lunder said that antibacterial products particularly are misused and overused.
Try to buy certified cleaners, and try to buy fewer of these products overall. Check online, many websites offer recipes for homemade cleaning products that are chemical free.
Reduce The Amount Of Chemicals In Everything That Goes Into or ON Your Body
So the key is to look at everything you are putting on or in your body, because a good 60% of everything you put on your skin soaks in within 26 seconds or in your mouth even faster and more.
So read all your labels and replace them all if possible with the most natural you can get. Like for instance, mineral makeup is one thing that can replace the usual harmful chemicals in makeup.
When you or your kids brush their teeth I would recommend using the right toothpowder. This is very important as not only does it make your teeth whiter, more clean and stronger then normal toothpaste but also reduces your chemical exposure as many tooth cleansing agents on the market are made of harmful chemicals.
Water is an effective way to get rid of harmful toxins. Women should try to drink 2.7 litres on a daily basis, and men should try to drink 3.7 litres.
Bring the Revolutionary Change
You can reduce your exposure to chemicals as much as possible, but chemical substances are still in our surroundings unless we take healthy steps and and use certified or natural products.
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables as said above and have a heavy sweat every day.
