Our world today is very polluted. It’s said that indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air! Even our babies today, are being born pre-polluted! So, what are we to do?
There are many simple things that you can do to help lower your body’s toxic load. Switching to natural cleaning products in the home, along with natural personal care products for example, will go a long way towards this.
Many standard cleaning products and personal care products come laden with nasty chemicals. Our body often struggles to get rid of them, a problem only compounded by the sheer volume that we are exposed to every day of our lives. If we cannot get rid of these toxins in a timely manner, our body often stores them in our fat cells. We can then suffer with additional weight gain, or an inability to shed those unwanted kilos.
Our body’s solution to pollution is dilution. The more polluted we make the body, the more diluted it tries to make it.. and so we put on fat. Lessening your exposure, by opting for non-toxic products, can help with more than just a cleaner planet.
Babies in this day and age are actually born ‘pre-polluted’. A sad, but true fact. A study done in 2004, by the Environmental Working Group, tested the umbilical cord blood of babies born in the U.S. and found a total of 287 chemicals, an average of 200 chemicals per child!
