How To Detox Your Life In 10 Simple Steps

Published

on

Every single day we are exposed to literally thousands of chemicals. The inconvenient truth is that there are more than 80,000 chemicals available in the United States today that have never been fully tested for their toxic effects on our health or the environment. Many of these chemicals are known carcinogens and have been proven to have many other adverse health effects, such as hormone disruption. Unfortunately, the regulations for chemicals in the United States are pathetic, at best. They are severely under-regulated and companies continue to keep using them because oftentimes they are much cheaper than their safer alternatives.

The good news is, there is a lot you can do in your daily life to drastically reduce your exposure to these toxic chemicals. Here are the top 10 ways to detoxify your life.

1. Change Your Cleaning Products

Cleaning products are completely loaded with a slew of toxic chemicals; many contain chemicals that are in fact known to be completely toxic, such as ammonia and formaldehyde. It’s really interesting to think that, even after countless studies have proven something is a danger to our health and it is even common knowledge, these chemicals are still legally allowed to be put in products we use every day. Luckily, consumers are waking up to the potential hazards of chemicals and safer alternatives are becoming readily available. Non-toxic, environmentally friendly cleaning products are easy to find and in most cases work just as well, so you can ask yourself, why wouldn’t you choose this product? You can also make your own products quite simply with many common household ingredients. For more information on which chemicals to avoid and a recipe to make your own cleaner check out Top Spring Cleaning Products And Chemicals To Avoid For Environmental & Health Reasons.

2. Cut Down or Eliminate Your Processed Food Consumption

“The problem is we are not eating food anymore, we are eating food like products.” –Alejandro Junger

This statement couldn’t be more correct; up to 70% of the average American diet comes in the form of overly processed foods. This means foods that have been far removed from their natural state and had unnatural ingredients added such as: high fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutamate, trisodium edta, nitrites, and other preservatives. These foods are designed to provide a sensory overload to the consumer and to also be addictive; this way, the consumer keeps coming back for more. Interestingly, many of these ingredients, so commonly used in food products in the Americas, are banned in other countries, specifically in Europe. Check out this list of 13 Chemicals Used In the USA Today That Are Banned In Other Countries. One has to ask, why the double standard?

Again, this is something that as a consumer you have complete control over. You have a choice every time you bring that fork to your mouth exactly what is on it. Choose whole foods more often and whenever you can for you and your family. A whole food is something that has not been removed from its natural state, like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, and organic animal products.

3. Conventional Foods

There are two main issues with conventional foods that are on the market today. Firstly, they are often laden with chemical pesticides, and secondly, have commonly been genetically modified. This is a problem because many of the pesticides that are being sprayed on our food are ending up directly in our bodies. The concern with genetically modified foods (GMOs) is that the DNA of the plant’s seed has been manipulated to withstand being excessively sprayed with a chemical that would otherwise kill it in order to effectively kill insects instead. No one yet knows what long-term effects these genetically modified foods could have on our systems and there are many different resources to show that it could be very detrimental to our health over time. For more information about GMOs, click here.

To avoid both toxic pesticides and GMOs the solution is simple: choose organic. Aside from drastically reducing your exposure to these toxins, choosing organic is great for the environment and helps to support local farmers.

4. Makeup

Much like cleaning products, most makeup products contain a large amount of entirely unregulated toxic chemicals. This is an issue because many women are putting makeup into their skin nearly every single day. People seem to forget that what goes on your skin, goes in your skin. For the most part, ingredients in makeup products are not even listed, and many companies can use the terms “natural” and “organic” without even having any way to back that up. Don’t be fooled by what these companies are selling you, nowadays natural and organic are more appealing to most people and the marketing industry knows this.

There are many safer alternatives out there; with just a little bit of research you can find much better alternatives. There are even a number of blogs that teach you how to make your own makeup products!

5. Personal Hygiene Products

Personal hygiene products range from soap to feminine products and everything in between. These products are another dumping ground for toxic chemicals that we often use on a daily basis.

Again, because people are starting to become a bit more wary of what products they are choosing to use, there are many safer alternatives to shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, deodorant, soap, body wash, face wash, cream, shaving cream, sunscreen, tampons, you name it! And the best part is, every time you choose a safer alternative product, you are telling the companies that are making the unsafe products that you are not interested in what they are selling. You may not feel like you are making a difference, but just imagine what would happen if everyone stopped buying these popular products and switched to more natural alternatives. Not only would we be ridding ourselves of these toxic chemicals, but the natural brands could lower their prices as a result. Just like makeup, you can make practically any personal care product yourself using completely natural and organic ingredients. Check out the Top 5 Everyday Personal Care Products You Can Make Yourself. 

6. Furniture

This is something that is generally entirely overlooked. No one really thinks they need to watch out for their furniture, but the truth is, a large portion of the furniture being sold in North America has been sprayed with extremely toxic fire retardant chemicals. The annoying part about this is that it is basically entirely unnecessary and is a ploy designed by the chemical companies. House fires are very rare these days; it was more common back in the 40’s-60’s where everyone was smoking, and indoors, but the incidence of house fires has dropped tremendously since then, and these chemicals are absolutely doing more harm than good.

With a little searching around, you can get non-toxic furniture for your home!

7. Water

Ahhh… water. Here’s a big one, which unfortunately comes with a lot of controversy. Water is very important for us, I’m sure we all know this by now, but currently, the majority of the water supply in America and a good portion of Canada is being treated with chemicals such as hydrofluorosilicilic acid (more commonly referred to as fluoride) and chlorine. Many believe that fluoride is good for our teeth, but there are countless studies which show that it is not safe to ingest every single day. Many cities across Canada have recently voted to have it removed, that right there says something.

It can be difficult to remove these chemicals from your water, but it can be done. There are a number of filtration systems available today that range in price depending on exactly what you want. Please note that “Brita” and other types of store-bought filters do not remove these chemicals. Please look into “Berkey” for reasonably priced filters. If this is not an option for you, spring water is a great alternative to tap water, and there are many springs to collect from. Check out www.findaspring.com for more info!

8. Get Your Sweat On

Sweating is one of the most efficient ways to detoxify your body of unwanted toxins that have been accumulated. You should sweat daily, though this doesn’t mean you need to go for an intense run every day. You can sweat by simply walking or even stretching or doing yoga. Doing this actually releases feel-good endorphins in your brain and can reduce stress as well. Another great method to get your sweat on is to sit in a sauna; this can be very beneficial to your health.

Also, it is important to allow your body to sweat, and if you are using anti-perspirant daily, you are actually stopping this process, since anti-perspirant = anti-sweat. Consider switching to a natural deodorant. You can even make your own by following the recipe in this link. (Trust me, this is the BEST natural deodorant I have ever used and it works extremely well!)

9. Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is an ayurvedic practice that involves brushing the skin with a dry, natural bristle brush daily to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This is amazing for detoxification because around one third of the body’s toxins are excreted through the skin, and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that have been trapped under the skin. For a more thorough response on how dry brushing can benefit you please read this: Looking For Beautiful Glowing Skin Without Using Oils, Creams Or Soaps? Try This Out.

An added bonus to this method is that it can completely replace the need for harsh soaps and lotions as well.

10. Cleansing

Yep, straight up cleansing, this one may seem obvious to some, but it’s something we probably don’t think of too often. Cleansing is a great way to “re-boot” our digestive system and clean out our livers and kidneys. There are so many different types of cleanses available to choose from, so with a little research you can find one that’s perfect for you. Most advise to cut out the consumption of alcohol, sugar, and processed foods for the duration of the cleanse. This is not only a great opportunity to detoxify your body, but also to take a step back from these foods that you may not even realize you are addicted to. It can be difficult, but you should feel the benefits of a clear mind and hopefully be on track for some more permanent, positive changes in your life.

I want to wish you all the best and encourage you to share your experiences with some of these methods of detoxifying your life in the comments section below!

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needless acupressure is often used on children.
