“All Natural”, “Made With 100% Natural Ingredients”, “Comes From Nature”…
We see these on the labels of different products in the market.
They are on our food, cosmetics, shampoos, home products and many more.
But are they really what they claim to be?
Unfortunately, some of these products get away with saying that they are “All Natural” when in fact, they have hidden toxins in them.
How can this happen?
The FDA or the Food and Drug Administration regulates the chemicals that are allowed in our food supply.
When the companies create a new product, they submit it to the FDA.
If the product has an ingredient that the FDA cannot classify, many times, they just put it under broad terms such as “Natural Flavors”.
These are actually chemicals that can cause damaging effects to your body.
Be aware and educate yourself by flipping the product over and reading the information at the back.
MOST COMMON CHEMICALS TO LOOK OUT FOR:
PARABENS – These are toxins that they put on hair sprays, face make up, shampoos, body creams, etc.
They make the products last longer and have a thicker consistency.
Parabens are very damaging because they mimic the hormone Estrogen.
When they enter the body through our skin, they become what is called Xeno-Estrogen.
Too much of this can cause the classic symptoms of a woman on her period – bloating, irritability, brain fog, mood swings and many more.
SULFATES – These help shampoos and other bath products become bubbly and foamy.
It can cause skin and eye irritation and may also strip the natural oils off of your skin and hair.
ARTIFICIAL/NATURAL FRAGRANCES – This is another term that the FDA uses to disguise a chemical put in products.
When you’re putting on these fragrances, your body will have to work double time to eliminate these toxins.
If you have a blocked up liver, kidney or intestines, then these are just more toxins that your body needs process.
PETROLEUM – This is oil that comes from the oil field.
You see this in lip balms, products for diaper rash and many more.
Be careful with anything that has petroleum because you are basically putting gas on your face, lips or skin.
HOW CAN YOU HAVE A TOXIN-FREE BODY?
For many people, being completely free from chemicals is impossible…and I get that.
I am a woman and I love getting my hair done, putting on my make up and having my nails painted.
I am aware that I am not living a completely toxin-free life.
But it does not have to be perfect.
Starting with eliminating 10% of toxins can be a huge difference between having a very serious illness and lasting, radiant energy.
Do what you can, make the effort and believe that you deserve it.
It’s all about awareness and taking action.
When you become aware of what your body needs in order to thrive, you have more opportunity to create health everyday.
Make an impact with your dollar.
Companies will make more of these toxin-free products when there is a higher demand for them.
It will create an economy where we can easily get products that are truly healthy and yes, 100% Natural.
To Choosing All-Natural Health,
Love and Light,
