How About Not Putting Toxins in Your Body

How?  One way is not to eat anything with toxins.  Interesting idea isn’t it.

So one of the dubious foods that are toxic, or worse, we don’t know that interfering with food will do.  I’m talking about GMOs.   Genetically Modified Organisms, doesn’t sound very healthy to me.

Here is some links that will take you to:

A Non-Toxic Cleaning Product

Yes.  I never know how much cleaning made me feel tired and … well, I just didn’t want to do it.  It was the chemicals that I used.   Even when I bought brands in the health food store that were more natural then the many very toxic chemicals normally found on the shelves.

Here is an article on a Cleaning Product derived from a mix of essential oils.   I have used it myself and I enjoy using it.   It not only cleans well, but it smells great.

Cleaning with Essential Oils, Cleaning without Toxins

Toxins = Bad Health

There are so many ways that toxins can get into your body and disrupt the normal body functions.   Yes, you can breath it, you can ingest them, you can even get it through your skin.’

Wonder what is in your beauty products?  What is in that shaving cream?  What is in the make up or skin softener?  What about the cleaning products?

What about the food you eat?   Not only can it have lots of toxins from the way it was grown, but now most vegetables are genetically modified …. GMOs.

Start somewhere and start eliminating the toxins from constantly being used by the body instead of what it should be using for health.

Here’s an article on GMO in case you wonder about buying non-GMO products but think they are too expensive.  Think about how expensive bad health is.

What is Processed Foods?

I keep being told that someone eats natural foods only and doesn’t eat processed foods.  But, when I talk further, they don’t know what that means..

Thought I’d give you some information – a processed food s any food that’s been changed prior to being consumed according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

When nutritionists  refer to “processed foods, they have a lot of additives.

Does it come in a box?  That’s a hint.

Processed foods comes with being heavily modified and contains a long list of ingredients.

That covers a lot of food.

Here is an article that can help.   Processed Foods

 

Why is What You Eat So Important?

So often I hear from various people that they don’t want to change their diet, they are too old to change what they eat and besides disease is really hereditary anyway

Is it?  I very often tell someone when they complain about the cost of healthy organic food, that they can spend more now or they can pay the doctor later. Besides the pain, loss of income, and anxiety of that might be wrong when they get ill, they miss out on all the energy they could have right now.

As an example of what a poor diet can do, may I present an article Diet of The Plague? What Went Wrong?

How does this work?

You have to understand that there are forty nutrients that cannot be made in the body. They are essential fatty acids, 15 vitamins, 14 minerals, and 10 amino acids. Collectively these forty nutrients are spoken of as the body’s requirements. From these our bodies synthesize an estimated 10,000 different compounds essential to the maintenance of health. All the forty nutrients work together. Therefore, the lack of any one might result in the underproduction of hundreds of these essential compounds. Probably no one nutrient is ever totally lacking from an otherwise adequate diet, but partial simultaneous deficiencies of many nutrients is common.

Your body needs these things every day to function. You have to start paying attention to what you eat, and make sure you take those vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids that are missing in your diet.

Rather than have to deal with sickness and heroic measures to save your life (surgery, drugs, etc.).  Isn’t it a better idea to build health?

Understanding what your body needs and providing it is your best Health Insurance.

 

We need to shift our focus from treating disease to generating health…” Hippocrates (“The Father of Medicine” 460 BC – 380 BC)
