We live in a world filled with toxins, we are constantly hearing in the news and print media about the toxins in our air, food and water. The toxins we are exposed to everyday can create health issues such as headaches, food allergies, behavioural issues, damage to our immune systems, bowel problems, lowered energy levels and skin reactions because of the toxic overload in our bodies. Why not try these ideas to reduce your toxin intake?

Eating Whole Un-Processed Organic Foods

A major source of chemicals and toxins can come from our food, the food we ingest may have already been exposed and have absorbed the pollutants.

Choosing organic whole foods free of preservatives and colouring agents as much as possible allows our bodies natural processes to filter and expel normal amounts of toxins naturally.

Filter Your Water

Filter your drinking and shower water, we absorb more water through our skin whilst bathing and showering than through drinking from the tap.

Water can be a major source of toxins, studies have shown water can be contaminated with prescription and over-the-counter medications, extra high levels of chlorine, and carcinogens from industrial and agricultural waste which have made it through the water-treatment systems in city or town supplied water.

Using Chemical Free Cosmetics, Body Care And Cleaning Products

Our skin is our body’s largest organ and what we wash with, rub and coat ourselves with is absorbed into our body.

There are now plenty of companies worldwide that are creating chemical-free products to ensure we have choice to safeguard our health and that of our children.
