Toxicity – The alarming source of disease

Your body is an intricate and exceptionally tuned organism designed with alarms that help you know whenever something alters the normal functioning of your body. Like a car needs service every now and then in order to operate efficiently, your body was designed to operate at maximum capacity when well nurtured with the right nutrients while weeding off potential threats.

Toxins in your body are your biggest threats to a healthy lifestyle. Constant exposure to toxins without a regular detoxifying program can increase your chances of experiencing serious health problems like brain damage, liver and kidney failure, respiratory irritation, anxiety disorder, birth defects, Pituitary/ Thyroid dysfunction among others.

Not everyone responds the same way to exposure of toxins. The kind of chemicals, the amount, and how the chemicals entered your body plays a major role on how you are affected. One proven fact though is that if you are continually exposed your body will take a toll from these chemicals leading to some of these diseases.

In addition to going through a cleansing/ detoxification process, there are a few ways you can reduce your contact with harmful chemicals:

  • Washing fruits and vegetables
  • Washing your hands
  • Reading labels that warn you of chemical exposure
  • Follow proper disposal guidelines for electronics, batteries, paint, and other harmful chemical containing products
  • Keep your home well ventilated
  • Avoid burning treated wood
  • Limit your fish intake especially those with high levels of mercury

By being proactive in watching your health, you will be invigorated to continue practicing healthy habits especially when you start enjoying the benefits of living free of toxins: reduced symptoms, more energy, feeling and looking younger and much more.
