Even for a discerning parent, it can be overwhelming trying to find the best, safest products for your family. Even brands that use “natural” and/or “organic” labels, may have an ingredient list that surprises you. Lucky for you, I’ve done the research and hold the highest quality standards. Avoiding toxin exposure is important for everyone to lead a health promoting lifestyle. However, it’s critically important for children. Children are still developing and therefore are much more susceptible to the harmful effects of some of these chemicals. Autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc. have all been linked to toxin exposure.[1]

What’s more frightening, however, are the side effects that are mild and undiagnosed but still effect your child’s quality of life. Harvard School of Public Health professor Philippe Grandjean refers to this as a silent epidemic. These side effects include: reduced attention span, lower IQ, poor school performance, and delayed development (among others). Continue reading with link in bio.

Bentonite clay is another staple for our health. Pesticides and toxins are all around us today, and no one can entirely escape them. Taking Bentonite clay helps our body to expel these harmful substances. Eat dirt for health! That sounds strange, doesn’t it? Nevertheless, ingesting clay can really be the best thing you've done! Already Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, identified different types of medicinal clays and earths.

Are your beauty products (keeping you) safe?

2 years ago I had all the candles and air fresheners. They would make me sneeze and give me a headache, but I would tell myself it was worth it cause my house smelled good.
😷
Then I learned companies would use the word “fragrance” on its label, which is just a fancy word used to hide chemicals that mimics hormones, cause endocrine disruptions, and are carcinogens which we know are cancer causing.
😱
Learning things like this makes me sad that this can happen in a time where cancer is on the rise and it is devastating families. If we know something is cancer causing it should come off the market immediately! But it doesn’t...
😢
As the gate keepers of our own homes though, we can make the decisions to pull these things off our shelves and unplug them.
🙌🏻
We do have the opportunity to make companies change things, we vote with our dollars! When we refuse to buy the wall plugins and toxic candles, it’s a vote that we want change!
👊🏻
You can still get your home to smell amazing too! I just came up with this new life hack. Vent filters with essential oils on them=air fresheners in every room! Bonus I don’t have to worry about the these causing my girls to start their cycle at 6 years old. #knowbetterdobetter .
❤️
Make sure you are getting the best essential oils on the market too! Don’t get me started on Walmart’s oils that smell like the chemical fillers that they are! You want pure oils straight from the plant no cheap fillers!

PFAs are used to repel water. They are a harmful chemical found in your paper coffee cup, your makeup, your $500 ski jacket, popcorn and of course rugs and upholstery. They effect our thyroid, our immune system are linked to low birth weight and cancers according to our own EPA. Go to my story to learn more and how to avoid them. Also visit www.greensciencepolicy.org - they are champions in the fight for healthier consumer products. #themoreyouknow #pfas #toxicchemicals #greensciencepolicyinstitute #bethechange #consumerawareness #toxinfree #health #wellness #consumerprotection #skigear #makeup #tents #popcorn #water #soil #greenpolicy #epa #toxinfreeliving

Shedding light on current practices and lack of regulation in the beauty and skin-care industries may come as quite the shock. Products that cite "fragrance" or "parfum" in the ingredients actually allows manufacturers to legally conceal toxic and harmful components. So if you’re looking to infuse some nature into your skin-care routine, look no further! .

Starting to think about switching products can be quite a daunting process. We don't really want to think about what's actually in the things we've been using on our skin. But once you start to look you'll be surprised, shocked even at the things that beauty companies are allowed to put in the things we put on our skin. There's no proper regulating of it! 'Fragrance' can contain a number of chemicals, some of which aren't necessarily safe in personal care products. Phthalates contain hormone disrupting chemicals and have even been linked to liver and breast cancers, diabetes and reduced sperm count.

The use of preservatives in many products means that the moisturiser you're using could have been made 5 years previous to finding its way to the shop shelves and into your basket.

Equally, with such a big focus on our use of plastic, we also need to be considering the effect of all the toxic chemicals we are putting into our water supply from cleaning and personal care products.

Think Dirty is a great starting point to help you see what's in the products you buy. By no means have I swapped everything from my cupboards that could or do contain toxic chemicals. It's a process, but one that I've started to think about and action in certain areas.

I am just in love with the young living toxic free essentials oils infused tooth paste and foam hand soap from young living products they just keep amazing me everyday. I wake up everyday happy knowing that I am using good product everyday without harsh chemicals and supporting my body with essentials oils Do you know how toxic your tooth paste really is ?
Here is some facts
Please feel free to do your own research.

Fluoride: Claimed by dentists to be an important defence against tooth decay, this chemical, also found in rat poison and is said to be more toxic than lead and only slightly less poisonous than arsenic, can be dangerous in large doses. That’s why you’ll find toothpastes for toddlers labelled fluoride free. And we use that on are teeths🙄

Triclosan.: Included in toothpaste as it is said to prevent plaque forming for up to 12 hours, this chemical was listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a pesticide back in 1996. They have since stated that it does pose a threat to humans and the environment. It has raised concern as an ‘endocrine disruptor’, which can lead to fertility problems like what 😔 When it leaks into the water supplies, it can damage aquatic animals and plant life, and kill algae. The FDA has expressed its concern about this ingredient, but even though Triclosan was banned from soap in 2015, it is still being used in toothpaste.

STILL WANT TO USE REGULAR TOOTHPASTE?

@healthonics - #bisphenolA is a synthetic #estrogen. It is also known as an #Obesogen. Once entered into our #body it interferes with our #hormones leading to weight gain and #obesity. It is commonly used in hardening of #plastic utensils. To know more about what exactly is #Bisphenol-A?, what are it's #sources? and how can it enter into our body? visit http://www.healthonics.healthcare/infographic-on-bisphenol-a-bpa/. Subsequent part in this series will explain about the adverse health effects associated with #BPA (Bisphenol-A) & what are it's alternatives....

Do you know how many toxic chemicals are in your dryer sheets?? 😫

A couple drops of lavender or gentle baby essential oil onto the dryer balls and your clothes will smell heavenly 😍 •
We are slowly switching over to a chemical-free household and Young Living makes that so easy! 🌿 •
Are you ready to make the switch?

I stole this great visual from @dietitianmegan because I want everyone to understand that the symptoms of disease all have one or more root causes. Disease doesn’t appear out of nowhere for no reason‼️
-
#Diet 🍪🥗🍕🍑 plays a HUGE role but so does lifestyle. Even if you eat a perfect diet 100% of the time (does anybody really? 🤔) but are always stressed 😫 , don’t get enough sleep 😴 , don’t move your body enough 🏃🏼‍♂️, are exposed to #toxicchemicals (think bug spray, household mold, tap water, plastic water bottles, hairspray, etc...), etc., your body will eventually react 😱
-
Our bodies are resilient but they can only handle so much. Rather then treating disease after it appears, it’s better to prevent it from happening in the first place.
-
Not sure where to get started? Do the opposite of everything in root causes‼️

⚠️💀Warning!💀⚠️
Because a lot of people probably don't know this, the essential oil industry is unregulated. Which means that oils like this can claim they're 100% pure.
No proof for testing needed.
⚠️ THIS IS NOT AN ESSENTIAL OIL YOU WANT TO USE FOR ANY PURPOSE IN YOUR HOME.
⚠️ 💀
These oils could be just as toxic as the synthetic chemicals you're trying to avoid in candles, cleaning products, and beauty products.

I'm extremely passionate about this and am teaching classes on this topic specifically. Please reach out to me if you want to start using essential oils and avoiding synthetic fragrances and chemicals. I would absolutely love to educate you and help you and your family live a cleaner, healthier life. 😁

Get rid of the toxic, synthetically fragranced body products. Your skin is your largest organ and Sicily absorbs ANYTHING you put on it. 🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️ #syntheticfragrance #toxic #toxicchemicals #vocs #indoorairpollution #carcinogens #carcingenic #skin #harmful #bathandbodyworks #lotions #choosebetter #knowbetterdobetter #naturalliving

The average household has about 62 toxic chemicals in it and we are exposed to them often. The ingredients in these very common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, obesity, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption and neurotoxicity. ⠀
There is no federal regulation of chemicals in household products.
