Never before in the history of mankind has the poor, unsuspecting human body been subjected to such an onslaught of foreign substances, many of which are grotesquely unhealthy. Pesticides in and on the food we eat. Hormones and medications and chemicals in our water. (Notably including flouride, under the guise of keeping our teeth healthy, ...but should we really be ingesting that?) Heavy metals in immunizations that protect us from disease but expose us to substances we wish they didn't. Chemicals leaching out of cookware and plastics and the fillings in our teeth. Unprecedented pollution and toxins in the air that ends up in our bodies. What on earth?! How did this happen and what can we do about it?
We could write a dissertation on how this happened, but it would take too long and you probably don't want to listen to us rant like your mother. We can offer some advice on what to do about it in much less time. Since you're here, we are going to assume that you already try to eat a pretty clean diet. That's obviously very important. At My Healthy Bliss we say 'yes' to drinking lots of water, but 'no, thank you' to tap water. Quality, filtered water every day is important to keep your body hydrated and to help your kidneys flush as many toxins out as they can. Try for half your body weight daily in ounces of water: for example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces of water daily.
Your skin is still exposed to tap water, however, every time you bathe or shower (unless you are fortunate enough to have a whole house water filtration system). Since your skin is the largest organ in your body, treat it right and give it a very important Detoxifying Bath at least a couple of times a week. Certain minerals, essential oils and herbal extracts can help your skin eliminate toxic waste and free radicals, and who doesn't want that?
Did you know that gut health has been proven to affect every other system in your body including your brain? It's critical that we give our body a Detoxifying Cleanse regularly and offer it effective Probiotics to encourage the growth of good gut flora and the banishment of the bad.
You have the power to help shield yourself and your loved ones from the harmful electromagnetic fields and even radiation emitted by the many different electronic devices you use every day in your home and life. Add in a couple of Himalayan Salt Lamps to emit negative ions to counter the positive ions emitted by your electronics and neutralize the atmosphere, not to mention offer some reallly wonderful ambiance.
Now, wasn't that easy? We can't change our environment but we can make little changes that will help our bodies recover from the chemical bath we live in. Taking steps to detox your body inside and out, along with a clean, healthy diet, can get us a long way down the path to better health.
Come along with us at My Healthy Bliss, where the journey to being blissfully detoxed begins!
